Food, Fitness, Baby’s First Halloween, And Our Anniversary

Hello, all! Another week simply flew by, and I cannot believe it is already November! Baby and I managed to stay busy this week, and I got to put her Halloween costume on more than once. She is one adorable dragon, that’s for sure.

Speaking of my cute dragon, she was in a parade on Tuesday, and got to wear her costume again on Thursday at Bugs class. It was so sweet seeing all the babies dressed up!

We did not take her trick or treating, one: because she doesn’t eat candy, and two: she was already asleep. Haha! Also, it was SO windy and cold here.

This kid is a riot, let me tell you!

She has been a little clingy and a bit fussy this week, but was still full of hugs and huge smiles! I am hoping a tooth is coming in.

OUR ANNIVERSARY:

My husband and I celebrated 4 years of marriage yesterday! We went out to dinner and a movie last week, but had fun celebrating at home last night. My husband came home with Chinese, flowers, and a few other fun things. We had some wine with dinner, relaxed on the couch, and caught up on our shows.

FOOD THIS WEEK:

I took advantage of the leftover Chipotle from baby K’s dedication for this meal. I honestly can’t remember everything in it, but it was tasty!

Cornbread and Chili! It was so perfect, especially since the weather is getting colder.

Pizza night!

I had Whole Foods salad bar for lunch today, and we got to spend time with my mamma! It was so fun!!

FITNESS THIS WEEK:

*Barre videos

*Elliptical

*Fitness Blender: Spartan 500 (you can find this on YouTube! It is a go-to for me).

*Spinning

That’s all for my update! I can’t wait to catch up on all of your posts.

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

With love,

Carly

Food, Fitness, Pregnancy, And Our Anniversary

Hello, all! Yesterday marked 24 weeks in my pregnancy. I can’t believe on Thanksgiving day I will officially be in the 3rd trimester. Ahhh!!!

I am starting to get some bad pains in my back and exhaustion is no joke. Not to mention the bladder that ALWAYS feels full! Lol!!! BUT….I love feeling my little bean kicking and seeing my belly grow. Pregnancy really is amazing.

I had a really great week of food and fitness, so here is the recap…

MONDAY:

The day started with an upper body workout class at my gym. It is hard to get motivated to take classes, but I am always happy when I go.

Dinner was chicken legs in the air fryer! If you don’t have an air fryer, they are awesome. Food cooks so fast and is always delicious. We also had asparagus and some chips.

TUESDAY:

The weather was so nice so I went for a jog after work. The pressure on my bladder is pretty bad at this point, so I only did a mile. I also did some other cardio exercises after the jog.

Dinner was pasta with ground turkey. YUMMMM!!!

WEDNESDAY:

Not only was it Halloween, but it was our 3 year wedding anniversary! Just a couple favorites from our wedding!

After work, I did a short barre workout before my husband came home early from work. We exchanged gifts before heading out to dinner. My pretty flowers!

We went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner and enjoyed spending the evening chatting.

I love their bread.

I had shrimp tacos.

After dinner, we came home and watched Netflix until bed.

THURSDAY:

The day started with a spin class. I haven’t been to one in so long and only stayed half the class, but it felt so good!!

Dinner was leftovers thrown together because I worked late and wanted something easy when I got home.

I ate while watching This Is Us.

FRIDAY:

The day started with a gluteus maxout class at my gym. It felt great, especially since I haven’t taken this class in so long.

I grabbed Starbucks and they have their holiday cups out now! Yay! So festive.

After work, my husband and I going to make pizzas and just relax. My nephew is coming tomorrow and spending the night! I can’t wait to see him.

Have a great weekend, everyone! With love,

Carly

To My Husband On Our 2nd Wedding Anniversary 

I’m warning you all now, this post is going to be pretty mushy. 

Sweetheart, 

Two years ago, in front of our friends and families, we got married on a beautiful fall day. 

I will never forget the look on your face or the tears in your eyes.

The day was perfect. Full of laughter, happy tears, a whole lot of dancing, and a room full of love. 

My life continues to get better with you by my side. Thank you for constantly treating me like I deserve the world. I love being your travel partner, your dinner date, your T.V. watching partner, and your best friend. You are the epitome of the perfect man. You are my fairytale come true and I thank God daily for you. 

So, here is to us and a lifetime of memories to come. I love you today and forever. 

Love,

Wifey
