Weekend Wrap-Up-Food, Fitness, Cute Animals, And Sunshine

Hello and happy Sunday, everyone! I am off of work tomorrow due to President’s Day, so my mom, niece, and nephew are coming to visit. I am looking forward to it!

This weekend has been pretty relaxing! We didn’t get out of the house much, but there is nothing wrong with that.

Here’s my recap…


After work, I came home and relaxed until my husband called letting me know he was on his way. I made a simple dinner of salad (with crushed tortillas) and chicken. I made a healthy bbq ranch dressing for it. Plus, I had an english muffin!

After dinner, my husband fell asleep on the couch, so I watched Forensic Files until I was tired.


I woke up and made a pot of coffee and had breakfast. My husband and I ran some morning errands (Petsmart and Best Buy) before heading home.

I had wanted to go to a spin class at my gym, but ended up doing a cardio workout at home. If you search “Fitness Blender” on Youtube, they have TONS of free and awesome workout videos.

A little later, I decided to use up my bananas and make banana bread. I found a recipe on Pinterest and it turned out wonderful!

It was healthified and husband approved!

We ordered dinner from a favorite of ours: Roosters! I got the grilled chicken fingers and a ceasar salad.

After dinner, we watched some of the All Star festivities (skills and dunk contest) before bed.


My friend and I went to Starbucks and church this morning. It is always nice spending time with her.

After church, I had a quick lunch! Ham, turkey pepperoni, and mozzarella all heated up on an english muffin, plus sweet potato chips. I also had a yogurt with nuts!

After lunch, my in-laws came over with the family pup, Bella. My cats weren’t sure what to think!

My older cat hissed at her and hid the whole time. He usually does okay with her, so that bummed me out.

My little cat (who is scared of everything), was brave and interested in her. Their interactions were adorable!

We took Bella for a long walk and she had fun! It was sunny out, making me long for spring!

When we got back, we started working on a puzzle we got from the bookstore. After we complete it, I want to display it!

What it will look like when we finish…

Once my in-laws left, we cleaned up the house and showered. I did a short yoga video before dinner.

Salad+tortillas+cheese+sweet potato fries!

Now we are relaxing until the All Star game comes on!

Sunday night drinks! Yum!

Have a wonderful rest of your day/evening!

With love,

  1. Carly, how does your food look so good and then you say “I made this healthy x”? I’m like, that looks decadent, how is that healthy and so delicious looking?? LOL Forensic files, I just love you 🙂 Your little cat is like “Hi, I’m (what’s his name?). Would you like some coffee?” xx

    1. Hahaha it has taken a lot of experimenting to get my food to taste good and be healthy 😉😉 I’m a food risk-taker!! Lol!! Forensic Files is addicting! My husband hates it so I took advantage of him sleeping! LOL-my cat (Goose) was so interested in the dog…she followed her around.


  2. That banana bread looks amazing!! We are bad at baking here so I always buy store bought banana bread but I wish I could make it on my own… also that pic of your little cat with the dog is way too cute! 😍
