Our Weekend (Food, Fitness, Friends, And Family)

Hello, everyone! Another Monday closer to meeting our sweet baby girl. I am so excited! I do have a little cold, so I’m hoping to knock that out quickly.

We had a nice weekend, so here is my recap.

FRIDAY NIGHT:

Once my husband got off of work, he was sweet enough to fix my mom’s breaks. He always fixes our cars! We sat at his shop and I was able to help out a bit. I’ve learned a lot about cars since being with him.

When he finished, we picked up Panera and took it home.

After dinner, my husband played video games and my mom and I watched Shark Tank. We love that show!

SATURDAY:

I woke up and taught my online classes before cleaning the house. I like to do a deep clean once a week!

I did a 20 minute pregnancy cardio workout followed by 10 minutes on the elliptical. It felt good to get a workout in.

Afterwards, I took a shower and nap before my in-laws came over.

My MIL and I went to Sam’s Club and the guys did some work in the nursery!

For dinner, we had stuffed salmon, twice baked potatoes, and salad. YUM!

After dinner, we watched some TV before bed!

SUNDAY:

We started the day with coffee and some relaxing. Once my in-laws left, I showered and got ready for the day.

I met up with some girlfriends for shopping and a late lunch at BJs.

Look at the Easter outfit I got for our little ♡♡♡

For lunch/dinner, we split avacado egg rolls and I had a delicious salad!

Once we finished and said goodbye I went to the grocery store before heading home.

I had some snacks and watched the Superbowl with my husband before bed.

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a great week ahead!

With love,

Carly

My husband picked up Chipotle for us on his way home from work. We ate and wached Netflix, which was so relaxing.

SATURDAY:

The day started with coffee and online teaching! I did a barre workout before starting on my to-do list. I got a lot done!

Later, my husband went out to grab us carry out from Roosters while I stayed home and took a long shower.

We ate and watched Breaking Bad until we went to bed.

SUNDAY:

My husband and I picked up Starbucks first thing and brought it home to enjoy in front of the fireplace.

I did yoga, went to the grocery store, and folded laundry.

My husband set up some things for baby girl! We are so ready for her!!!

We went out to dinner at a place called Local Cantina with some friends. I enjoyed the chicken fajitas!

Now time to prepare for the freezing cold weather expected this week!

Have a good one!

New Years, Food, Fitness, Friends, Winter Break, And A 33 Week Bumpdate

Guyyyysss….we are 7ish weeks away from meeting our little girl and I just can’t believe it!

Just a little bumpdate to start this post…

33 WEEKS:

*The belly is huge and is a perfect Starbucks/Snack holder haha

*Baby kicks like CRAZY…and her kicks are hard lol!

*I have been craving sweets….mostly chocolate and peanut butter

*It is hard to bend over, shave, roll in bed, etc.

*First trimester symptoms are creeping back in: nausea and extreme exhaustion

*I have to get up to pee constantly…my bladder must be a trampoline lol!

*My body feels okay overall

*I’m starting to nest! I can’t wait to hold her!!!

Okay….now onto this week’s recap…

MONDAY-NEW YEAR’S EVE:

I woke up and picked up Starbucks because my best friend was coming to visit! She came over and we drank our coffees while watching Sex and the City and chatting. It was sooooo nice.

She had a surprise for me from her husband, which was so sweet I wanted to cry. He got me a gift certificate for a pedicure at the best spa in town, plus he treated us to lunch at J. Alexanders. He is so kind!

Lunch was fantastic!

After lunch, we did some shopping before she headed home.

That evening, my husband and I picked up ice cream and ate it while watching the Avengers! We made it until about 11 before heading to bed.

TUESDAY: NEW YEAR’S DAY:

The hubs had the day off, so we slept in, then had coffee!

I worked out at home, doing a barre video and a little cardio on my new elliptical! Yes, we had the fireplace on because our house was cold lol!

I did some cleaning and class prep. We also took down our Christmas decorations. Dinner was a vegan frozen pizza and a salad.

WEDNESDAY:

I woke up, taught a few online classes, then did a workout on my elliptical.

After lunch, I did a little cleaning before heading to get a blowout. My husband and I had our maternity pictures that day and had so much fun!! I can’t wait to share them.

Before heading home, I ran to the post office to pick up a package from https://girlwiththepawprinttattoo.wordpress.com She had a giveaway that I won!

It was like opening another Christmas present! I love my goodies!!!!

Ready for pictures.

After our pictures, we had steak for dinner. It was delicious!

THURSDAY:

I woke up, taught online, then did a quick elliptical workout while listening to a podcast.

After a shower, I headed to a prenatal massage (thanks to my hubby)!!! It was so relaxing and I enjoyed every second of it!

I had lunch at a market nearby before heading home.

When I got home I cleaned, then spent the evening relaxing.

The cats were cozy, too! Haha!!

When my husband came home, we had brats and sweet potatoes for dinner.

I fell asleep on the couch.

FRIDAY:

We slept in this morning….well until 7….lol. We have a dr appointment at 10, then I plan on working out and cleaning. My best friend is coming back into town this evening so we can get our pedicures and have dinner together!

My mom is coming to visit and celebrate her birthday this weekend and help me sort more baby clothes!

I have enjoyed winter break so much, but it is back to thd grind on Monday!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

With love,

Carly

Let’s Have A Saturday Coffee Date

Hello all you wonderful people! How is your weekend treating you so far? I am currently cuddled up with my kitties and drinking coffee. I always see people do the post “If We Were Having Coffee…” and I wanted to do my own version!

So…onto our coffee date!

  1. First, I would ask, “How are you doing?” Listening is just as important as sharing, and I consider myself an excellent listener.
  2. Next, I would tell you that it is almost my birthday! I am turning 29 on March 23rd. I am not 100 percent at the place I thought my life would be, but I am pretty darn lucky. I mean would you just look at this handsome guy I get to be married to! FB_IMG_1520688020538.jpg
  3. I want to share that I am struggling with where I am going in my career. I am considering going back to school, but for some reason the thought scares me a bit. I graduated college years ago, but since I want more out of life, I know it would be a good decision to get back at it. Ahhh!!
  4. I would tell you that my journey with pregnancy isn’t all I thought it would be. It has been hard, and filled with tears and MANY negative pregnancy tests. I never thought it would be this way, full of medicine and constant blood draws, but I will say that it is part of my journey, and I am learning to accept that.
  5. I would share a new friend with you!!! Blogging has become a passion of mine, and we should all lift each other up. I met a new friend, Elle, over at http://labeaute.org/ and her blog is seriously awesome. I have been going through her posts and I just love what she is about.

Just look at what her about me says…

“LaBeaute.org is your daily dose of all things beautiful. Not just in fashion and beauty, but it’s all about the beautiful things in life. My true passion is inspiring and empowering women, so by creating this blog, I hope to give as much inspiration and motivation to other women out there seeking confidence in life.”

We just celebrated International Women’s Day, and I hope to continue lifting my fellow bloggers up! Here are a few of my favorite posts:

I hope you check her out!

6. I would definitely share some of my healthy chocolate peanut butter protein cookies with you, especially because they go amazing with coffee. I made them fresh this morning, and had a yogurt and nuts to go along with breakfast!

7. Last, I would give you a big hug (because I’m a hugger) and say goodbye!

Have an amazing rest of your weekend!

With love,

Carly
