Our Weekend Of Food, Friends, Family, Fitness, And Sickness

Hello and happy Sunday, all! Our weekend started out wonderful, but that changed when our sweet daughter became ill. I will get to that, but let’s recap the good parts first.

FRIDAY NIGHT:

I spent a lot of the day cleaning because my husband and I were having our friends over for dinner.

Once I got the baby down, I put out cheese, crackers, and wine to have when our friends came.

When they got to our house, we chatted while my husband grilled steak and salmon. Our friends brought homemade mac and cheese!

Dinner was absolutely delicious, and we had a great time catching up.

After dinner, we played Cards Against Humanity. It was so fun! Such a nice change of pace from watching movies. We talked and laughed so much. When they left, my husband and I cleaned up and headed to bed.

SATURDAY:

The day started with coffee and hanging with the baby. When she went down for a nap, I went to the gym. I did 30 minutes of a spin class, then a short upper body lifting workout. It felt so good!

When I got home, we got ready, and headed off to a food truck festival downtown. It was such a nice family day!!

These two are my absolute favorites!

We waited in the longest line for a food truck called Cousins Maine Lobster. It was actually on the show Shark Tank! Guys, it was SO worth the wait. I had lobster tacos and my husband had the lobster roll.

We also grabbed a meal from Island Noodles, which was delicious! Noodles, veggies, and terriaki chicken! Yum!!!!

We fed the baby a bottle while we ate.

She was exhausted by this point, so we headed out after eating.

When we got home, we played until it was time to get our sweet girl to bed. She fell asleep and we had some leftovers for dinner. We rented the Avengers, and enjoyed some ice cream that we picked up from Kroger earlier in the day.

About an hour into our movie, I heard the baby somewhat gagging on the monitor. My husband ran into her room (I was right behind him) and rolled her onto her side as she started vomiting. I got her in my arms and the vomiting started again. It happened many times, until everything was out of her and it was just dry heaving. My husband did an excellent job staying calm, but I struggled with that. We talked to my husband’s aunt, who is a nurse, and she gave us advice on what to do.

We had her lay with us for a long time, until we knew the vomiting was done. We kept an eye on her the whole night. She slept well thankfully!

SUNDAY:

Baby girl was so hungry when she got up. She was also super happy!!

She has had a great day so far and seems to be 100 percent herself. My husband woke up not feeling well, and I have a sour stomach. Hopefully we don’t get any worse!

It was so terrible seeing our sweet baby in pain. This was the first time she has been really sick and it broke my heart. I’m so glad it was short lived!!

Well, that’s about a for today! I’m hoping to get my laundry all folded before dinner.

Have a wonderful rest of your day and a great week ahead!

With love,

Carly

A Motivated Mamma Update

Hello and happy Friday, all! Do you have any fun weekend plans? We are having some friends over for dinner and I’m so excited! Luckily, I got my cleaning finished during the baby’s nap this morning. Yay!

Anyway, I have felt extremely motivated during my workouts this week, despite an extremely painful UTI. Those are the worst! Thankfully, my antibiotics knocked it out and I am MUCH better.

Gosh, this little cutie keeps me going. I just want to be the best mommy to her because she is amazing.

Let’s recap this week in healthy food and fitness!

MONDAY:

For my workout, I jogged with baby K. We did some hills which was challenging, but so fun for both of us!

For dinner, we made the most delicious meal from Hello Fresh. I have never tried a meal delivery kit, but it was delicious and so fun to make! They get expensive, but it was fun to try.

Lots of veggies topped with a grilling cheese. We put chicken on ours to make it more hearty!

We watched Bachelor in Paradise while enjoying our meal.

TUESDAY:

My workout was a Barre video at home. It felt good, but my UTI was in full force so I struggled with that all day. Ughh!!

For dinner, we had porkchops. I put mine in a salad! Yum!

I had a rough evening and did not sleep well.

WEDNESDAY:

I felt well enough for a 3 mile jog before my dr. appointment! My mom babysat while I got medicine and ran some errands! Thanks, mom!!!

We had a baby play date at my friend’s place, and it was fun getting baby K around other kiddos.

For lunch, we had food from Whole Foods because we love their salad bar!

My husband came home early to be on baby duty while I went to a Handmaid’s Tale Finale Party! We all brought a dish, dressed up, and watched the show. It was a blast and the episode was SO GOOD.

Anyone else watch the show??

I got straight into bed when I got home.

THURSDAY:

I woke up before 5am because my body doesn’t like to sleep in. I decided to take a spin class before I taught online. It felt so good!

Later, baby K and I had another play date! Starbucks and the park = so much fun!

For dinner, we had pasta! I added a veggie burger to mine instead of the meat sauce that my husband used.

FRIDAY:

The day started with a gluteus maxout class at the gym! It felt so good, but I’m already sore.

Now that the house is clean I need to shower before our friends come over, but my little one is napping on me and I love it so much. I never get these snuggles anymore, so I’m soaking it up!

That’s a for this recap, friends! I will leave you with a throwback picture in honor of my. brother’s 36th birthday this week. You have to love early 90’s fashion haha!!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

With love,

Carly

Our Weekend (Food, Fitness, Friends, And Family)

Hello, everyone! Another Monday closer to meeting our sweet baby girl. I am so excited! I do have a little cold, so I’m hoping to knock that out quickly.

We had a nice weekend, so here is my recap.

FRIDAY NIGHT:

Once my husband got off of work, he was sweet enough to fix my mom’s breaks. He always fixes our cars! We sat at his shop and I was able to help out a bit. I’ve learned a lot about cars since being with him.

When he finished, we picked up Panera and took it home.

After dinner, my husband played video games and my mom and I watched Shark Tank. We love that show!

SATURDAY:

I woke up and taught my online classes before cleaning the house. I like to do a deep clean once a week!

I did a 20 minute pregnancy cardio workout followed by 10 minutes on the elliptical. It felt good to get a workout in.

Afterwards, I took a shower and nap before my in-laws came over.

My MIL and I went to Sam’s Club and the guys did some work in the nursery!

For dinner, we had stuffed salmon, twice baked potatoes, and salad. YUM!

After dinner, we watched some TV before bed!

SUNDAY:

We started the day with coffee and some relaxing. Once my in-laws left, I showered and got ready for the day.

I met up with some girlfriends for shopping and a late lunch at BJs.

Look at the Easter outfit I got for our little ♡♡♡

For lunch/dinner, we split avacado egg rolls and I had a delicious salad!

Once we finished and said goodbye I went to the grocery store before heading home.

I had some snacks and watched the Superbowl with my husband before bed.

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a great week ahead!

With love,

Carly

A Weekend Full Of Food, Fitness, Baby Prep, Family, And Spa Fun

Hello, all! How was your weekend?! Mine was so nice! I go back to work tomorrow after a 2 week break. My pregnancy is really starting to hit me since I am nearing the end of it, so I know it is going to be tough going back.

Anyway…let’s recap the weekend shall we?

FRIDAY EVENING:

I met my best friend for Starbucks and an appetizer at a delicious restaurant called Mezzo. I had a super tasty kale salad.

We had pedicures scheduled at the Woodhouse Day Spa next door, and headed there after we ate. The spa was so lovely! We got robes, then sat in the “quiet room” with snacks and tea.

They called us for our pedicures and it was absolutely amazing!!! Afterwards, we went back into the “quiet room” and chatted a while. We left around 6 and both headed home.

I made a fried plantain for a snack because I was hungry again.

I went into my bedroom early, diffused some oils, and watched Love Actually until it was time for bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up, had some coffee, then taught online.

After teaching, I did a prenatal cardio video, plus the exercise bike while I listed to a podcast.

My mom came over around noon and we went to Whole Foods for lunch. After lunch, we did some shopping for baby items, as well as items I need to take to the hospital.

We also started washing and sorting the TONS of baby clothes I have for little Kennedy!

That evening, my mom, husband, and I went out to dinner for my mom’s birthday (coming up this week). The place was called 101 Beer Kitchen and it was wonderful!

I had the veggie burger and beet chips.

The atmosphere was adorable and we spent a long time chatting and having fun! Happy early birthday, mom!

After dinner, we watched Netflix until bed.

SUNDAY:

I woke up and got Starbucks with my mom before getting ready for church. We went to church with one of my closest friends and it was fun to see her!

After church, my husband made brunch. It was so tasty!

After brunch, my mom and I finished organizing and shopping for more baby items. It exhausted me a bit, but I am so thankful for my mom’s help!! I am finally relaxing about everything!

My mom left around 4:30 and I decided to relax on the couch a while. I will finish the rest of my list a little later!

The hubs and I will make something quick for dinner and hopefully just relax and watch Netflix tonight.

Have a great evening and upcoming week, all!

With love,

Carly
