Our Date Night, Family Time, Food, And Fitness

Hey guys!! My posts are pretty sporadic these days, as I am still navigating motherhood. I will say that we have gotten into a routine, and I am more confident in being a mommy. Our little one went to the dr yesterday and is now 8 pounds, 9 ounces. She is a little chunk and so stinking precious!

We got our newborn pictures back yesterday and I’m obsessed with them, but can’t believe our girl is so much bigger already!

That is her on my wedding dress.

And her now….

I’m so blessed.

Now, onto the weekend….

FRIDAY:

My in-laws came over around 7pm and my husband and I headed out for a date. We went to dinner at Northstar Cafe and it was delicious as always.

After dinner, we had to go to the car so I could pump (yay mom life Haha) and also took a nap before our movie. LOL! We saw Captain Marvel at 10 (SUPER late for this mamma)! We enjoyed our night so much, but the little one didn’t sleep well that night.

SATURDAY:

The little one woke up early, so my mother-in-law held her while I went to Starbucks and did the elliptical for 30 minutes! I’m so glad that I am healed and can work harder on the cardio machines.

My husband spent the day working on his dad’s truck, and his dad and brother worked on our railing. I played with my girl all day!

My brother in law cooked us a tasty dinner and we ate then watched Bohemian Rhapsody. It was such a good movie by the way!!

SUNDAY:

We had a busy day full of visitors on Sunday! My college roommate (who also happens to be my husband’s cousin) came over with her girls and it was fun for them to meet Kennedy!.

Freshman year of college and now with our kids. Oh how life has changed!

We also had my husband’s aunt and some friends over. The house got crazy!!

I spent Kennedy’s Monday nap time cleaning from the weekend.

That’s all for today! Have a great week!

With love,

Carly

Weekend Wrap Up- Date Night Times 2

Hey there, everyone!! How was your weekend?! Ours was so fun (minus the terrible headaches I’ve been getting).

We decided to have 2 date nights this weekend! Friday night was my husband’s choice and Saturday night was my choice.

FRIDAY NIGHT DATE-BRAD’S CHOICE

When my husband got home from work, we got ready and headed out. We had bibibop for dinner, then saw Avengers Infinity War in the fancy theater with reclining chairs.

Dinner was tasty and the movie was awesome!

After our movie, we came home and I read until I fell asleep.

SATURDAY NIGHT-MY CHOICE

Our date started with seeing A Quiet Place in the fancy theater with reclining chairs. We loved the movie!!

After our movie, we headed to our downtown area to try out a place we had never been to before. It’s called Dirty Frank’s hot dogs and oh my gosh they were SO good!!

The pricing was cheap and the atmosphere was fun.

I had a veggie dog topped with coney sauce, sauerkraut, and grilled onions with a side of broccoli. We also split the fried cauliflower. YUM!!!

After dinner, we came home and watched some Netflix before bed.

SUNDAY:

I went to church, did some grocery shopping and made a stop at Lowe’s. My husband and I grilled out for dinner and it was delicious!

Salmon, asparagus, and corn!

Now it is time to relax before another work week begins!

Have a great one, all!

With love,

Carly

A Weekend Full Of Food, Fun, Sun, And A Little Fitness

Hello, everyone! I think spring may have finally shown up for good here in Ohio! Yay!!! We definitely have been enjoying the weather. Our cats are loving it, too. They have spent so much time by the open windows.

We have had a fun, productive, and relaxing weekend! Here’s the recap:

FRIDAY NIGHT:

My husband was stuck at work later than usual, so I used some leftovers to make a salad and toast while watching Netflix.

When my husband came home, we watched Master Chef Jr. before bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up early, made some coffee and decided to be productive. I cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, mopped, and did laundry. To help pass the time I listened to a podcast I’ve been enjoying lately called My Favorite Murder.

After I cleaned, I went to the gym for a gluteus maxout class. It felt good!

I came home, ate lunch, and started working on “missions” for my online teaching job.

When I was done with all of that, my husband and I had a super fun date night! We went to Condatos Tacos for dinner and margaritas. Everything was awesome!!

We both built our own tacos and all I have to say is YUM!

After dinner, we came home, got into our sweats, and rented Father Figures. It was a fun movie and we both enjoyed it a lot!

SUNDAY:

I woke up this morning, got ready, and met my girlfriend for Starbucks, church, and brunch! We had fun spending time together. We had brunch at a place called Scramblers and I had their traditional benny with a side of fruit. It was delicious!

When I got home, I did two more “missions” for my online teaching job. It took a long time, but it was worth it!! I relaxed a bit before doing a yoga video at home. My legs and hips were so tight and it felt great to loosen up.

Next, I did a grocery run, then my mother-in-law came over to drop a few things off and have dinner with us. We had stir fry and it was really tasty!!

Now, I am going to pick up a little bit before spending the rest of the evening relaxing with my husband!!

What did you do this weekend?!

Have a wonderful upcoming week, everyone!

With love,

Carly

Weekends Are For Relaxing, Organizing, And Date Nights

Hello, all! Well, another weekend is winding down and it’s back to work tomorrow. Our weekend has been so nice! It was a perfect balance of relaxing, fun, and productive. Let’s recap, shall we?

FRIDAY NIGHT:

For dinner, I had this healthy pizza from Whole Foods plus a salad! So good!!

After dinner, the hubs and I watched Master Chef Jr. before heading to bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up fairly early and made some coffee and protein pancakes.

After breakfast, I went for a short jog outside. The weather was lovely! After my run, I met my best friend (who was in town for a few hours) at Starbucks. We sat and talked a while and did some shopping before she left.

When I got home, my husband and I started working on our to-do organizing list! One thing on the list was to hang the beautiful wine rack my brother-in-law made for us. He is so talented!

Once we decided to be done for the day we got ready for a date night!

We had dinner at Texas Road House, then headed to the movies to see 🐓 Blockers. Dinner was delicious and the movie was hilarious!!!!

By the time we got home it was late so we went straight to bed.

SUNDAY:

I woke up and had some coffee before getting to work on certifications for my new online teaching job. When my husband woke up, we got back to organizing and so much was accomplished! It makes me so happy!

My little teaching area!

I took a break and had a bath. It was so relaxing! Afterwards, I did a quick yoga video.

For dinner, I made a taco salad. It was so tasty!

We are finally done with house work and it is time to relax.

How was your weekend? I’d love to hear.

Hope you have a great upcoming week!

With love,

Carly
