Gahhhh! The Hauperts can’t catch a break lately! First Murphy with his neck and back issues… Me with a never-ending flare and healthcare frustrations… And then Quinn gets bit by a mosquito and his face swells up! The poor kid woke up with a swollen eye yesterday morning. He got stung by a mosquito over the weekend, and the spot on his forehead swelled up like crazy. I took him to the doctor yesterday morning…

Mal and I were up and at ’em yesterday morning. We each wanted to squeeze in a quick workout before a day at Duxbury Beach. Unfortunately, our workouts weren’t quick enough because when we arrived at 7:45 AM, non-resident was at capacity. Whomp whomp. We were bummed, but we made the best of our drive to Duxbury by stopping at Coffee Shack (in Marshfield) on the way home. Butterscotch iced coffee? Yes, please! I was…

Life since Christmas? Cliffs notes: We didn’t stop moving! Holy cow. I’m exhausted. 12/26: The day after Christmas, we took down our tree and decorations… packed them up and put them in the attic until next year. Then, we cleaned the whole house. Holy pine needles! 12/27: We had friends over for wine and apps. We tested out our new Corkcicle Wine Chiller from my sister. It works great, so now we don’t have to leave the couch in order…

Hey, hey! Happy Sunday to you! Quinn is taking a nap and Mal is out running errands, so I thought I’d pop in and share some fun stuff from our weekend so far. Ok, here we go, in no particular order, the best of our weekend! DATE NIGHT WITH MY FAVORITE GUYS. By Friday, we didn’t have much food in our house, so we decided to go out to dinner at Scarlet Oak Tavern, which was…

Hey, hey! Happy OCTOBER 1ST to you! Also, happy THURSDAY! The weekend feels so close, I can just taste it”¦ if that’s something you can taste? Do people say that? I have no idea, but I’m excited that the weekend is just around the corner because we’re going to Newport, which is our FAVORITE WEEKEND OF THE WHOLE ENTIRE YEAR. Seriously. Mal and I look forward to it so much. We love everything about Newport””including all of its…

Good morning! Another summer weekend is in the books and, boy, it was a great one! Friday night was pretty low-key. Mal went out with some friends, so after I put Quinn to bed, I whipped up a quick dinner for myself (Sweet & Sour Chicken with broccoli). And spent the rest of the evening watching Real Housewives of New York City and shopping online. (I also enjoyed a dark chocolate Mighty Muffin and some lemonade.)…

Good morning, friends! How was your Hump Day! We had a great one over here… It started with FlapJacked Protein Pancakes topped with sliced banana and maple syrup. And then I did a tough workout (from CrossFit Back Bay) at KFIT. My shoulders were en fuego! Then, Quinn and I drank smoothies together. His was mango + banana + vanilla yogurt. Mine was banana + vanilla yogurt + iced coffee + vanilla protein powder. Please note…

This post is brought to you by Ricola® Herb & Throat drops as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #swissherbs Hi, guys! So, you know how magazines, like US Weekly, give you an “exclusive” look inside the handbag of various celebrities? I love these kinds of features because they let you peek inside the celebrity’s life and see what it’s all about. And they look really fun, right? But, of course, we all know these photos are likely “enhanced” to…

Good morning, friends! I have all sorts of fun things to tell you””ten of them, actually”” basically, they are things that happened in the past few days. Ok, here we go! #1: Quinn said his first word. Words? We think. Maybe? Ok, Quinn says quite a few “words” on the regular, but the ones that actually make sense are “ba-ba” (bottle) and “uh oh” (when he drops something). He’s actually said “uh oh” for a few weeks…

GOOD MORNING! Happy Friday, my friends! What’s on the agenda for the weekend? I hope something exciting!

Good morning, friends! Yesterday morning started like a lot of them: Morning baby belly laughs, diaper change, breakfast for the little guy + iced coffee for me, and then breakfast for me while playing with Quinn and watching the news. Our mornings together are one of my most favorite parts of the day. A couple of hours later, Quinn started to get cranky and went down for a nap. I’m pretty sure he’s hit the 9-month…

Hello, hello! Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was pretty good, so let’s have some fun with numbers as a way to recap! 1: Video games that Quinn learned how to play. 4: Bowls of Greek yogurt + granola eaten. 1: “Dog beers” consumed. 9: Total hours sleep between Friday and Sunday. Sick baby + a brain that never shuts off = sleepless nights. 21: Minutes it took me to complete the workout below. 105: Weight…
