We Had a Busy Weekend

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. I felt like a jerk not bringing Murphy along too, but it was my first totally alone, out-of-the-house excursion with Q (for more than 15 minutes – Mal and I have done “baby swaps” at CrossFit a few times), so I thought baby + pug might be a little too much for me, especially for my first time out. Next time, Murph!

Anyway, Q and I swung by Marylou’s for iced coffees for Kerrie and me and then we walked for about 45 minutes at the park. Q snoozed almost the entire time. He woke up for a little bit, but we didn’t have any major meltdowns, so I’d say our first trip out together was a success!

On Friday night, Mal, Q, and I met our friends Jess and Scott for ice cream at Peaceful Meadows in Whitman. They told us about it at brunch last weekend, and it sounded like such a magical place (ice cream! bacon! cows!), so Mal and I really wanted to check it out.

Peaceful Meadows was adorable and the ice cream was excellent. I went with Coconut Chocolate Almond (aka “Almond Joy”) like I always do. It’s my favorite flavor forever and ever.

Jess is due with her first baby in December, so it was fun chatting (and laughing a lot – these two are hilarious) with her and Scott about pregnancy and newborn stuff.

On Saturday morning, I went to CrossFit and did a partner WOD with Jess. We split the row and reps in half and finished 2+13. I used 65 pounds for the Thrusters and dominated the pull-ups. Well, ok, ‘dominated’ might not be the right word, but I did a bunch of sets of 5, so I was pretty pumped. Hey, it’s coming back!

After CrossFit, I came home, fed Q, ate lunch, all that jazz… It was such a gorgeous day, I just couldn’t sit inside, so we grabbed Murphy and the three of us went for a long walk around the neighborhood. We listened to Balanced Bites and walked for almost an hour.

A couple of hours later, Mal came home (he was out doing a workout and having lunch with one of his buddies) and then we headed to a BBQ at one of our neighbor’s houses.

We all had a nice time there. We ate lots of delicious food and drank some delicious drinks!

I woke up on Sunday morning craving an egg sandwich in a bad way, so I made one with deli ham and Creamy Spicy Pepper Jack from The Laughing Cow, which is my new favorite flavor. Holy yum!

After breakfast, Mal and I took Q and Murphy to met some friends at the park for a doggie playdate.

After the park, Q snoozed for a bit, so Mal and I cleaned the house and got our lives in order. After that, we headed to Kerrie’s house for some Sunday Funday activities, which included sangria, lobsters, carrot cake, and a bonfire. All the makings of a wonderful summer Sunday!

Sunday Funday

All in all, it was a fabulous weekend, and it finally felt like summer to me!
