Our Long Weekend (Food, Family, And Fitness)

Hello, all! How was your weekend? Ours was nice, as we enjoyed an extra day due to Memorial Day. As of today, I have four days left of work until summer break, and the start of being a stay at home mom. It is crazy to be beginning this journey.

Anyway, onto the recap…


After getting the baby down for a nap, my husband and I got Chinese takeout and watched Blockers. It was a nice, relaxing evening.


I taught a few online classes, then enjoyed coffee and relaxing with the family.

I went to the gym for some cardio (the treadmill and stair climber).

After my workout, I came home and cleaned during the baby’s nap.

When she woke up, we took her little bathtub outside to enjoy the weather and water! It was so fun! She loved looking around and taking in her surroundings.

After a bath, we put baby to bed and grilled burgers. We had peppers and sweet potatoes, too! Yum!!

We rented a movie, but I fell asleep.


The day started with coffee as always!

I did a 3 mile jog before our visitors came. My sister in law stopped by and played with the baby, then later, my mom and cousin came over. We took a walk and it was so nice!

When everyone left, we put the baby down for bed, but she fought it like crazy and did not sleep well! Once she finally went down, I had a Whole Foods salad and toast for dinner.

I watched Big Little Lies before bed.


I started the day early with coffee and more Big Little Lies before the family woke up.

I did a short baby wearing workout, then played with the baby. I did a grocery run, then cleaned while baby K and my husband napped.

After naptime, we took a family walk to the park.

By the time we got back it was close to the little one’s bedtime, so we gave her a bath before putting her down.

I took a shower while my husband grilled us dinner.

We ate and watched the Bachelorette before bed.

Well, that is all for this update. Have a great week!

With love,

  1. Chinese food is always a good idea! Especially a great Friday night meal. Sounds like such a fun weekend!! How do you like Bachelorette? I am actually loving this season. Hannah is a breath of fresh air in my opinion- didn’t care much for her on Colton’s season, but I like her now.

    1. I completely agree! She annoyed me on Colton’s season, but then I realized I am so awkward just like her haha. She is doing awesome as the Bachelorette! Some of those guys on the other hand are pretty bad! Lol!!!!

      1. Yes she is soo relatable !! I agree- the group of guys are quite a group of characters- they are entertaining (some just plain annoying) while I feel kinda bad because she doesnโ€™t have many to actually choose from. I think Peter is the front runner!

  2. So much good food! Sudden cravings for burgers with sweet potato fries *drools*. The stay-at-home mum life is amazing! I stayed at home with my boy for a year and a half before I went back to work. Soak it all up! It sounds like you’re absolutely nailing this balance thing. What an inspiration. Get it, girl!

    xo, Victoria
