Weekend Catch-Up (food, fitness, family, and projects)

Hello, all! I am finally getting to my weekend post. Ours was incredibly busy, as we didn’t stop going until bedtime Sunday evening. Plus, I am officially back to work, making life extra busy.

Anyway, this past weekend, my husband’s family came to help us do some huge house projects that we have put off for far too long. With baby coming, there is lots to do!

Plus, we wanted things finished because we are having people over this upcoming weekend for our gender reveal.

Onto the recap:


The day started early for me, as I had to teach online! When I finished, my brother-in-law arrived and we chatted a while before I went to the gym for a gluteus maxout class. My husband and brother-in-law ran errands and we all met up at home.

When I got home, my mother-in-law and father-in-law arrived and it was time to get to work.

The boys started the task of putting in our oak railing, while my mother-in-law and I ran tons of errands.

The boys only took a break for dinner. Stuffed salmon, an asian salad kit, and pineapple. It was delicious!

A before picture!

After dinner, they got back to work until bedtime.


We started the day with a tasty breakfast made by my brother-in-law! Then it was back to work for the boys, and more errands for the girls (plus lots of cleaning).

Lunch was ham and cheese sliders and oh my gosh they were AMAZING.

The rest of the day was spent (nearly) finishing the railing, installing our new dishwasher, and putting in a new mailbox!

My husband still has to finish staining the spindles, but I am in love with it!

Dinner was grilled chicken and air fried sweet potato wedges. Yum!!

Once everyone left, I took a shower and we watched a show in bed before crashing hard.

I am so thankful for my in-laws and all of the help they gave us!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

With love,
