Our Long Weekend (Food, Fitness, Dates, And A Photo Shoot)

Hey there, everyone! How was your weekend?! I enjoyed the extra day off, but we definitely kept busy!

Let’s catch up, shall we?

FRIDAY NIGHT:

I went to the gym for a quick workout after work, then stopped at Whole Foods to pick up food for dinner.

We had salmon cooked in the cast iron skillet, asparagus, and a salad! It was delicious!!

SATURDAY:

I woke up, and taught my online classes before a cardio session at the gym.

We spent the cleaning and relaxing a bit! We had bad storms that evening and my cats were cuddling! It was so adorable.

My husband and I ate an early dinner, played Clue, and watched Deadpool 2 before bed.

SUNDAY:

Sunday was a big day! We got to do wedding pictures (3 years later) to promote a new venue! Our wedding photographer contacted us and asked if we wanted to do a shoot and it was SO much fun! I had my hair and makeup done in the morning.

That afternoon, we had a brunch/lunch date at Northstar cafe!

We met at the venue around 6:30 and did sunset pictures, then night pictures. It was so much fun and gorgeous outside!

We got home late, ate leftovers, and watched Game of Thrones.

MONDAY:

I slept in, made a pot of coffee, made pancakes, and watched more Game of Thrones.

I went to the gym and did the arc trainer, but took it easy.

My mom met me mid day for maternity clothes shopping. We had lunch at Whole Foods, while working on my baby shower list.

We shopped all day! I got a ton of great stuff (thanks, mom) and got my groceries as well.

My husband worked on the house all day! He was super productive.

Dinner was Jersey Mike’s subs.

We watched Bachelor in Paradise before bed.

It was a great weekend!

Have a wonderful week!

With love,

Carly
