Let’s Have A Mid-Week Coffee Date

Happy hump day, folks! How is the week treating you so far? Let’s catch up with a coffee date!

I would be having a coffee with soy milk!

I might be all over the place so here goes…

1) First of all, I have to share that I am so excited to see my mom tonight!! She has been gone for a couple of weeks on a cruise. I’m glad she’s home!

Isn’t she adorable?

She sent me a picture of Starbucks in Mexico!

2) Next, I would fill you in on my first fertility appointment and share my nervousness for my test tomorrow. I love the doctor! He is on top of things and I feel confident that he will help us figure out what is going on. We are still doing tests, so hopefully we get some answers soon!!

3) I would also share that I am stressing a little about some life decisions. I’ve been praying a lot and trying to stay positive! I am very excited about my online teaching job, and am teaching my first class tomorrow!

4) I would tell you that I am pumped for my upcoming vacations! Whooo!!! 2 lake trips and 1 beach trip. Hurry up summer!

5) I would ask how you are doing? Please share something with me!

Have a great rest of your day!

With love,

Carly

A Weekend Full Of Food, Fun, Sun, And A Little Fitness

Hello, everyone! I think spring may have finally shown up for good here in Ohio! Yay!!! We definitely have been enjoying the weather. Our cats are loving it, too. They have spent so much time by the open windows.

We have had a fun, productive, and relaxing weekend! Here’s the recap:

FRIDAY NIGHT:

My husband was stuck at work later than usual, so I used some leftovers to make a salad and toast while watching Netflix.

When my husband came home, we watched Master Chef Jr. before bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up early, made some coffee and decided to be productive. I cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, mopped, and did laundry. To help pass the time I listened to a podcast I’ve been enjoying lately called My Favorite Murder.

After I cleaned, I went to the gym for a gluteus maxout class. It felt good!

I came home, ate lunch, and started working on “missions” for my online teaching job.

When I was done with all of that, my husband and I had a super fun date night! We went to Condatos Tacos for dinner and margaritas. Everything was awesome!!

We both built our own tacos and all I have to say is YUM!

After dinner, we came home, got into our sweats, and rented Father Figures. It was a fun movie and we both enjoyed it a lot!

SUNDAY:

I woke up this morning, got ready, and met my girlfriend for Starbucks, church, and brunch! We had fun spending time together. We had brunch at a place called Scramblers and I had their traditional benny with a side of fruit. It was delicious!

When I got home, I did two more “missions” for my online teaching job. It took a long time, but it was worth it!! I relaxed a bit before doing a yoga video at home. My legs and hips were so tight and it felt great to loosen up.

Next, I did a grocery run, then my mother-in-law came over to drop a few things off and have dinner with us. We had stir fry and it was really tasty!!

Now, I am going to pick up a little bit before spending the rest of the evening relaxing with my husband!!

What did you do this weekend?!

Have a wonderful upcoming week, everyone!

With love,

Carly

Fit Friday-This Week In Tasty Meals, Fitness, And A New Workout Class

Hello and happy Friday, friends! We made it!! Do you have anything planned this weekend? I’m not sure what we are doing, but I have a list of things I want to accomplish!

This week flew by for me. I had a lot going on! My meals did not disappoint and my workouts were fun…especially the new class I took!

Here’s the recap:

MONDAY:

I went to the gym after work for a full body class called the C9 Challenge. I was tired, but it felt good and left me sore!

Dinner was a terriaki stir fry kit with chicken and brown rice.

TUESDAY:

After work, I came home, prepped dinner, and put it in the crockpot before meeting my girlfriend at the gym for a hip hop class!

Now, let me tell you, hip hop is WAY out of my comfort zone, but we had a blast. I definitely struggled with some of the moves, but we laughed so much. Moral of the story: try new things!!

I was so hungry when I got home and was glad dinner was ready! I made sausage and bean soup (my mother-in-law’s recipe) and it was delicious!!!

WEDNESDAY:

I woke up early for a tabata class. I love this workout so much!!

Dinner was a chicken melt and fried plantain.

THURSDAY:

I didn’t work this day because my husband and I had our first appointment at a fertility clinic (more on that in another post). I was tired after and luckily I was able to go home and relax. For lunch, I had chicken tacos and they were so good!

Dinner was turkey dogs (beef hot dogs for the hubby) wrapped in crescent rolls, sweet potato fries, and veggies. It was SO TASTY.

FRIDAY:

I waited until after work to go to the gym. I did a short cardio workout before heading home.

Now it is off to make dinner.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

With love,

Carly

Weekends Are For Relaxing, Organizing, And Date Nights

Hello, all! Well, another weekend is winding down and it’s back to work tomorrow. Our weekend has been so nice! It was a perfect balance of relaxing, fun, and productive. Let’s recap, shall we?

FRIDAY NIGHT:

For dinner, I had this healthy pizza from Whole Foods plus a salad! So good!!

After dinner, the hubs and I watched Master Chef Jr. before heading to bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up fairly early and made some coffee and protein pancakes.

After breakfast, I went for a short jog outside. The weather was lovely! After my run, I met my best friend (who was in town for a few hours) at Starbucks. We sat and talked a while and did some shopping before she left.

When I got home, my husband and I started working on our to-do organizing list! One thing on the list was to hang the beautiful wine rack my brother-in-law made for us. He is so talented!

Once we decided to be done for the day we got ready for a date night!

We had dinner at Texas Road House, then headed to the movies to see 🐓 Blockers. Dinner was delicious and the movie was hilarious!!!!

By the time we got home it was late so we went straight to bed.

SUNDAY:

I woke up and had some coffee before getting to work on certifications for my new online teaching job. When my husband woke up, we got back to organizing and so much was accomplished! It makes me so happy!

My little teaching area!

I took a break and had a bath. It was so relaxing! Afterwards, I did a quick yoga video.

For dinner, I made a taco salad. It was so tasty!

We are finally done with house work and it is time to relax.

How was your weekend? I’d love to hear.

Hope you have a great upcoming week!

With love,

Carly
