Our Valentine’s Day

Hello, everyone! I hope the week is treating you well. K has had quite a few no nap days, leaving this mamma pretty tired. I am SO thankful that she sleeps well at night! I planned on posting this on Monday, but you know, mom life.

Anyway, we had low-key Valentine’s Day, but I wanted to share.

My husband surprised me on Wednesday with beautiful flowers and my favorite almond butter. He usually waits until the day of, when all the flowers are picked over, but was sweet to go early this year!

Love them!

On Sunday, my sister-in-law came over and spent the day with us. We did some baking and hanging out!

Almond flour cinnamon rolls! These are delicious. We topped them with Simple Mills vanilla frosting.
Chocolate protein balls. Yum!

My sister-in-law left when we put K down for bed.

Once the house was picked up, I took a bath while my husband when to get us takeout.

We got Chinese, then spent the evening catching up on Hell’s Kitchen and relaxing! It was so nice.

So yummy!!!

Well, that’s all for today. Have a wonderful rest of your week!

With love,

This Week In Delicious Food, Fitness, A Musical, And Valentine’s Day

Happy Friday, all!! Gosh, I’m ready for a long weekend. Do you have any fun plans? I’m not sure what we are doing, but we will probably see Black Panther at some point.

This week has been AMAZING for food. I seriously ate something delicious each day! It was full of carbs and I’m not sorry about it. Haha!

Here’s the recap:


I’ve been taking a class called cycle sculpt on Monday mornings. It is intense and I love it! 35 minutes of spinning and 25 of weights.

Dinner was SO GOOD! I found a recipe on Pinterest for antipasto squares, so I decided to make my own version.

Mine is made with Annie’s organic cresent rolls (as the bottom and top layer), filled with ham, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and mild jalapenos. The top is brushed with olive oil, parmesan, and Italian seasoning. Baked until golden brown. YUM!!!

After dinner, we watched the Bachelor before bed.


I woke up early and hit the gym to do an upper body lifting workout.

After work, I went to my hometown to meet my mom to see The Sound Of Music at a local theater.

Before the show, we met my best friend and her mom for dinner at Uno’s Pizza! I had a salad, and my mom and I shared the very veggie pizza! Okay, not healthy, but they got rid of their delicious wheat bread. We got the thin crust, and it was still super tasty!!!

Dinner was a blast and the musical was AMAZING!!! We had a fun night!


I woke up exhaused because the play the night before ran so late! It was worth it though.

After work, I went to the gym for a 3 mile run. It felt good, despite being tired.

When my husband got home, he told me to go to a separate room while he got my Valentine’s surprise ready.

He got me beautiful flowers, my favorite almond butter, and is treating me to my hair appointment! He also went to Whole Foods and got all of the ingredients to make cheese stuffed ravioli with meat sauce. It was delicious!!!

I was so surprised! He is the best!!! We had such a nice evening together.


I decided to go to the gym after work and do a workout on the stair climber. I listened to a podcast which helped pass the time.

Dinner was a Bertolli frozen pasta and shrimp meal. I cooked up some chicken to add to it!


I woke up early and went to my favorite workout class: Gluteus maxout! I love leg day!!! I know I’m going to be crazy sore from it tomorrow.

Well, my lunch break is almost over, so time to go.

Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,

Wedding Pictures

Hello, everyone! Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you love birds. I know this holiday can be a little cliche, but I don’t care because I love opportunities to make my husband feel extra special.

In honor of love, I thought I’d share some of our wedding pictures since I didn’t have a blog at that time.

OCTOBER 31, 2015

My husband helping our nephew (ring bearer) with his boutineer. Heart-melting.

Before the ceremony we exchanged letters, but didn’t see each other.

The whole wedding party! I love this one.

This was during his brother’s best man speech. It was hilarious!

Later into the reception we brought out props and they were a big hit!

I love reminiscing on this day! I love this guy with all of my heart!!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day!

With love,
