Part one: Weekend recap (date night & pool time)


Good morning!

I hope that everyone had a fun weekend.  My weekend was just perfect- even though I kept thinking about the fact that last weekend I was vacationing in paradise.

Then again, home is pretty much paradise to me. 🙂

On Friday night, I originally planned to serve up some leftovers for dinner, but while I was exercising, I kept thinking about how nice it would be to have dinner at Brixx.

(Am I the only one who thinks of food during their workouts?)

So, I called Michael and asked him out on a date.  Luckily, he happily accepted.



I ordered the Mediterranean salad (minus the feta cheese) with grilled salmon.  I love their salmon (which is probably what triggered my urge to go there).

On Saturday morning, I took a 5-mile power walk and then had a bowl of Kashi cereal with fruit and chia seeds.  I’ve been in a breakfast rut, so I decided to switch things up (more about that in a future post…).


After breakfast, I took a little drive to Earth Fare, one of my very favorite places. I swear that I could walk around that store for hours.


I was actually pretty well-behaved though and only walked out with:




After a lunch of avocado, red onion, romaine, and tomato on sprouted rye bread with a side of cantaloupe, Michael and I spent the rest of the afternoon in our neighborhood pool.



It was such a beautiful day for it, and the water was nice and warm- just the way I like it.   We mainly did lots of people watching, and Michael managed to consume a few beers. 😉


What was the best part of your weekend? 

Are there any stores that could keep you occupied for hours on end?  Aside from Earth Fare, I could definitely kill some time in Target.

Stay tuned for part 2 of my weekend recap later this afternoon!

    My God girl, 5 miles?! I can barely walk 10 minutes these days without feeling like I may go into labor. And sorry I haven’t called you back yet, had my shower this weekend and friends in town so been crazy busy but will definitely give you a ring soon, miss you!!

    • Haha. I’ve still had lots and lots of energy for the most part and have been working out everyday. Now that I am in the third trimester, I am sure that will all fade away though! I hope your shower was awesome. Cannot wait to chat! 🙂
