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…

FRIDAY NIGHT:

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

SATURDAY:

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.

SUNDAY:

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.

MONDAY:

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,

Carly

Our Long Weekend

Hello, everyone! To start this Memorial weekend post I want to say God bless those that serve, fight, and die for our freedom. You are the real heroes.

How has your weekend been, friends? Ours has been so lovely! The extra day off was much needed.

Let’s recap:

SATURDAY:

I woke up, made a pot of coffee, and relaxed a bit. I decided to go for a jog outside, but 2 miles in it started raining, so I figured that was enough of a workout for the day!

I showered and got ready for the day! My husband’s cousin (who was my college roommate) brought her two daughters to spend the day and we had so much fun!

The weather got very nice after the short rain so we took the girls to the outdoor mall near my house. First, we went to the fountains and watched them play, which was so cute.

Afterwards, we went to Bubbles juice bar for smoothies! I also had a yummy protein bar!

Our next stop was Barnes and Noble book store. The girls played with trains and looked at books!

They fell asleep in the car so we said our goodbyes.

When I got home, I sent the hubs out to get Chipotle while I watched Netflix!

Yummmm!

After dinner, we played cards, then watched TV until bed.

SUNDAY:

I woke up, had some coffee, then went to a yoga class at my gym. It was so needed!!!

For lunch, we made avacado egg salad and it was delicious!

After lunch, we packed up a beach bag and headed to a small local beach about a half hour from our house.

We layed out, played frisbee, and relaxed. It was a blast.

When we got home we had showers before making dinner.

I had a veggie burger, sweet potato fries, and a spinach salad.

The rest of the evening was spent watching basketball.

MONDAY:

I woke up, had coffee, and watched some Netflix before heading to the gym. I took a class that was half gluteus maxout and half upper body extreme. It felt awesome!!

I grabbed a smoothie from the cafe before heading home.

Once I got home, I spent a few hours cleaning and prepping for my online teaching job this week. I love a clean, organized home!

Lunch was leftover avacado egg salad, crackers, cheese, grapes, and turkey pepperoni.

Next up was grocery shopping. I went to Aldi and did so well! I love that store so much. They have such good food for awesome prices.

After putting groceries away, we relaxed a bit until it was time for dinner.

We grilled out and everything was so tasty.

Now it is Bachelorette time!

Also, how cute is my chunk??

Have a great week, everyone!

With love,

Carly
