A Low Key, Family-Filled Weekend

Hi, all! I am writing this in the bath, trying to get rid of whatever stomach issues I am having. I went to bed feeling okay, but when baby woke up to eat I had a bad sour stomach and it hasn’t gone away. Thankfully, my husband is being super dad and watching the little one! He has also been cleaning all day.

Anyway….our weekend has been great (minus me feeling bad).

Let’s recap:

FRIDAY NIGHT:

My girlfriend came over and we grabbed Whole Foods for dinner and ate at my house.

They have the yummiest salad bar!

We chatted a while, and hung out until my little one got so fussy that I put her down for bed.

SATURDAY:

The day started slow, with coffee and family time. Me and baby K’s swim suits came in, as well as her adorable new sleeper. I played dress up with her, that’s for sure!

Frappuccino sleeper and her adorable flamingo suit. Ahhh…that sweet, chubby baby is the best!

Later in the day, I went to the gym for a lifting class! It felt great.

Afterwards, I picked up Whole Foods for lunch, as well as getting us stuff for dinner.

When I got home, we took a family walk because the weather was so beautiful! It was wonderful spending time with just my husband and baby.

When we got back, we relaxed a bit before giving the baby a bath. She was absolutely exhausted, so bed time came early for her! Once I got her down, I took a shower and my husband cooked us dinner.

It was delicious!

We also rented the movie Bumblebee (I only slept through a little of it…haha).

SUNDAY:

The baby didn’t sleep as well as I would have hoped, plus my stomach has been a mess. Today, I planned on cleaning and grocery shopping, but all I’ve done is picked up the kitchen, snuggled my baby, and taken a bath. Hopefully I will get a second wind so I can feel accomplished before Game Of Thrones tonight!!

That’s about all for this recap. Have a great week!

With love,

Carly

Our Family Filled Weekend And First Long(er) Trip With Baby

Hi, all! How was your weekend!? Ours was non-stop busy. Fun and wonderful, but exhausting! Baby girl and mamma are trying to recoup today.

Anyway….

FRIDAY NIGHT:

My husband’s family came over to spend time with us and baby. His sister has only seen her once before, so she enjoyed holding and loving on her.

Baby girl had a bath and early bed!

SATURDAY:

Guys….my baby turned 2 months old. I love watching her grow. She is taking shorter day time naps, but giving us long stretches at night! It is amazing getting sleep again lol. She is busy and needs entertained all day, so I am wiped out by bedtime! Our days are filled with reading, singing, walking, and playing with her toys.

My husband and father in law spent the whole day working in the yard, so me and this cutie took a long walk and did a baby wearing workout. She didn’t nap well, so mamma was going all day.

The guys grilled for us that evening and it was delicious.

I took baby to bed early, but she was extra fussy!

SUNDAY:

This little family of mine traveled to my hometown for a special day.

First, we met my mom for lunch, then visited my dad’s grave. It was so special to have my baby there with me.

I can’t wait to tell her stories of her grandpa. He would have loved her so much.

Next, we visited my grandma and she got to hold her youngest great grandbaby for the first time.

That amazing lady is 96 years old! Gosh, I love her!

Next up, we visited my best friend and her family. We had pizza and played with the kiddos. We left after dinner and headed home. We were all worn out by the time we got home! The little one fell asleep with no fuss because she was so exhausted. It was a great day!

I hope you enjoyed the update! Have a wonderful week!

With love,

Good Eats, Workouts, A Date Night, And Scary Shows

Hi, all! I hope your Monday is treating you well so far. I overslept and was super rushed this morning, but managed to get ready and grab Starbucks on my way to work.

Anyway, this weekend was relaxing, which was necessary because I’m getting a cold.

I binged watched (and finished) the Netflix show The Haunting Of Hill House. I loved it! It was so spooky, and I got invested quickly. Have any of you seen it? Thoughts?

Now, onto the recap:

FRIDAY NIGHT:

After work, I came home and watched Netflix for a while. My husband worked later than usual so I ate before he got home.

Meatloaf, a sweet potato, and a salad.

SATURDAY:

I woke up, had some coffee, and got to my online teaching. My husband had a work event and I stayed home. I did a bump at the barre workout, did some housework, then watched Netflix by my fireplace.

By the time my husband got home, I needed out. We walked around our outdoor mall, then had a sweetest day dinner at Northstar Cafe.

When we got home, we got comfy and watched football until bed.

SUNDAY:

I slept in, which felt amazing! My body needed the rest. I’m pretty tired these days!

I had coffee and finished my Netflix series while separating baby clothes.

I went for a 3 mile jog and it seriously felt so good! Post jog snapchat lol!

I finished my cleaning (which took a long time because I had to mop and deep clean), then hit the grocery store!

For dinner, we made a sweet potato and turkey hash with mushrooms and onions. It was delicious!

We rented Ant Man and the Wasp to watch while we ate.

It was a lovely weekend! Now let’s hope I can knock this cold out quickly!

Have a great week, everyone!

With love,

Carly

Weekend Wrap-Up (Food, Fitness, Fireplaces, And Family Time)

Hello, all! Another Monday came too soon…

I hope you had a nice weekend! I tried to catch up on sleep, which a did a little. We weren’t too busy, so that was nice. I can’t believe how chilly the weather is. It feels like we skipped fall (my absolute favorite) and headed straight for winter. Boooo. I am super happy that my mums bloomed so nicely though!

Here’s the recap:

SATURDAY:

The morning started early with coffee and teaching. I had 6 classes, which is more than I typically do! I love the extra money, but the sleep would have been nice, too.

After teaching and breakfast, I did a barre workout in my basement. I love prenatal barre because it gives me a great workout while staying low impact!

After my workout, my husband grabbed us lunch from Chick-Fil-A, then we watched football by the fireplace. I officially am using my fireplace constantly! Haha!!

I had a wrap with a superfood side salad.

After the game and relaxing, we both started working on house stuff. My husband cut the grass and worked in the garage while I cleaned.

By evening, I had a shower and made a quick dinner before watching a movie with my hubs.

SUNDAY:

I slept in a bit which felt great! I made coffee and did a short prenatal yoga video.

My husband and I got ready, then met my mom and her friend for brunch at Northstar cafe! My husband and I spit a blueberry muffin before our meals came out.

I had the sweet potato and turkey hash. It was delicious!

After we ate, we did some shopping and I got an outfit for sweet baby.

When we got home, I took a short nap before finishing my cleaning and going to the grocery store.

For dinner, we made pizzas and they were delicious!

Bedtime came early!

Have a great week, everyone.

With love,

Carly

Our Weekend (Family, Babies, Football, Food, And Fitness)

Hello, everyone! I hope Monday hasn’t treated you too bad. Mine was good, even though I was still a bit tired from our family filled weekend.

Let’s recap!

SATURDAY:

The day started with coffee and some online teaching.

After teaching, I finished up my cleaning and booked my husband’s 30th birthday trip to Chicago! Yay!!

I had a little time to hit the gym for some cardio before my family came over.

My mom, brother and his wife were all going to the Ohio State game, so my husband and I babysat our sweet niece.

She had fun chasing our cats, but they did not enjoy the chaos.

We took her to the park and it was so much fun. By the time we got her to bed we were exhausted. I made an apple cake to snack on and my husband made chili for dinner.

Once everyone got back from the game, we ate and talked/watched football until 11ish. I slept so hard that night!

SUNDAY:

I was the first one up, and my mom was up shortly after. We grabbed Starbucks for everyone.

My brother treated us to brunch at Scramblers which was delicious!

After brunch and some cleaning, my in-laws stopped by and I went to Sam’s Club with my mother-in-law.

When they left, I ran to target while my husband worked on some house projects. Next up is the nursery!

We made an apple bake which was super tasty!

For dinner, I had a salad with chicken!

Bed time came early!

It was a lovely weekend! I hope yours was, too!!

With love,

Carly
