A Baby Filled Weekend (A 1st Birthday Party And My Baby Shower)

Hi, all! Sunday is winding down, and I am laying here with my husband. Our weekend was so nice and full of love! It was busy, so I didn’t get my typical weekend cleaning done, but I have some time over Thanksgiving week to do that.

Let’s recap the weekend!

SATURDAY:

The day started early with online teaching. After teaching, I did a quick pure barre video before getting ready for the day.

My husband and I headed out late morning to go to Cincinnati to celebrate my niece’s first birthday!

When we got there, they had a taco bar for lunch.

It was yummy!

The birthday girl opened presents and gobbled down her cake. We also watched football and just enjoyed the day with my family!

By the time we got home, we didn’t want to cook so we picked up Jersey Mikes subs for dinner.

We ate and watched TV until bed.

SUNDAY:

My mom came over early and we went to church together. It was so nice. After church, we picked up smoothies before heading back to my place.

I had a hair appointment (which ended up being a slight fiasco). Insted of checking me in when I got there, they canceled my appointment. By the time it was all figured out, we started super late, and I didn’t have time to get my hair washed. She curled it quickly! Luckily, they didn’t charge me.

I hurried home, changed, then headed to my baby shower.

My adorable, delicious cake.

Our yummy spread of food!!

Our sweet girl was so spoiled today!! She will be here before we know it!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

With love,

Carly

Fit Friday-This Week In Food, Fitness, A New Baby,  And Thanksgiving At Our Place

Friday is here…although with the holiday I have had an extra long weekend already. What a wonderful week it has been! Between meeting my niece, cleaning, and hosting Thanksgiving, it has been crazy…but in the best way possible!

MONDAY:

My workout after work was the C9 challenge! I take it every week and I can tell I’m getting stronger. It is circuit style with weights and bursts of cardio. 

Dinner was Kodiak Cake pizza and a salad. Simple, yet so tasty!

TUESDAY:

I woke up flooded with texts and pictures of my brand new niece born late the night before. I knew I had to see her as soon as possible!

My morning workout was a 30 minute stair climber workout. 

After work, I drove to meet ny niece. Luckily, my mom came halfway so I didn’t have to drive the whole thing alone. 

I love this little peanut so much already!!

After spending time with the little one, my mom, brother, and I went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s. I love their salad bar. I made a huge salad with chicken and had a bowl of soup. 

I stayed at my mom’s place that night since I didn’t want to drive so late. We watched This Is Us before bed!

WEDNESDAY:

I woke up bright and early to get home. My friend and I picked up our packets for the Turkey Trot, then grabbed Starbucks. 

I headed to the gym for a Barre class and it was awesome. It was low impact, but I got a lot out of it. 

The rest of the day was spent deep cleaning and prepping for Thanksgiving!! I did take a break for a nourish bowl. I found this at Kroger and it was super tasty!

My husband and I ran some errands then crashed hard once we got home.

THURSDAY:

I woke up early and had a cup of coffee before meeting my friends to run the Turkey Trot. It was freezing at the race, and I lost feeling in my feet until almost the end which kind of sucked. We had a lot of fun despite the cold and rewarded ourselves with Starbucks after! 

I love my friends!

After the race, it was time to get ready to host Thanksgiving! We spent hours cooking, and it all payed off. The food was delicious and the company was even better! Wine, food, family, and friends…you can’t beat that. 



After dinner, we cleaned up a bit. My husband’s family stayed the night so we watched a movie before bed. 

It was a wonderful day!

FRIDAY:

This morning I woke up and used our new coffee grinder  (our housewarming gift from my aunt and uncle) to make some delicious coffee. I plan on taking a workout class and potentially doing some shopping later! We have a big weekend coming up and I can’t wait to share with you guys!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

With love, 

Carly
