The Hauperts had quite a busy weekend! From Friday afternoon until Sunday evening, we were go-go-go and it was kind of awesome, especially since the beginning of the summer was so low-key for us. I’m glad that things are getting back to (a new) normal and we have a social life again. And it seems like Q enjoyed getting out and about too! Friday afternoon, Q and I met Kerrie and Bentley (her Frenchton) for a baby-dog walk….

Hello! Happy FRIDAY! Here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! 60 Practically Free Ways to Update Your Home <— So many great ideas! THIS is CrossFit A local CrossFitter wrote this blog post after competing at the Battle of the South Shore Boxes at CrossFit 781 (my box) this past weekend.

Hi, guys! Not much to report on the baby front. We’re still waiting. No (obvious) signs of labor, but my lower back is kind of achy today, which is a new development. My friend Jen told me she had back pain the day before she went into labor, so maybe we’re getting close to something happening? I had the worst time sleeping last night. Being 40+ weeks pregnant and hyped-up on steroids, I didn’t fall asleep…

Good morning, happy Friday, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Mal!!! The love of my life turns 32 years old today!

Murphy and I kept Mal company while he ate breakfast and opened presents. Murphy…

Last night, I had my final CrossFit class until after Baby H. arrives. It was definitely bittersweet. Obviously, I need to give my body a break and rest up for labor, but, man, it was sad saying goodbye to my favorite workout and my favorite people. As Greg Glassman (the founder of CrossFit) once said, “Woodstock wasn’t just about the music.” I will miss you, CrossFit 781, but I will be back! I asked my friend…

Hi, friends! Good morning and happy Thursday! I hope your day is off to a wonderful start! Breakfast Remember this recipe for Paleo “Oatmeal”? You’ve probably seen it on CNC, right? Anyway, it’s a fabulous recipe (delicious, nutritious, satisfying), but every time I make it, I end up scrubbing the pan that I cook it in forever. Coconut oil works pretty well to prevent sticking, but I still spend more time on clean up than I want to….

Hi, friends! I hope your day is off to a wonderful start! Here are some of my eats from yesterday”¦ Breakfast I’ve been so boring with my breakfasts lately.
