Weekend Highlights


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Mine was very relaxing and family filled. On Saturday Marc’s parents came for a visit to see Ava and spend some time with us.We enjoyed some take-out Thai food for lunch. I got the Chicken Brown which comes with lots of veggies and brown rice. It was quite tasty.

I have been slightly obsessed with the show Scandal, have you seen it? We have Netflix so it’s super easy to watch a few episodes in a row! We are nearing the end of the second season, and I don’t know what I am going to do when we are all caught up!! Any suggestions on a new show to get hooked on?


Saturday night we watched the PATRIOTS win and move on to face the Broncos in the AFC Championship next Sunday. WOOHOO.

Sunday morning I woke up at 530am with Miss Ava. I was wide awake and well rested because she had slept for 6 straight hours. I’m loving that she’s getting in bigger stretches.

Once she was back to sleep I started watching my Group Power video and taking notes on the new workout. When I finished that I put together a new workout for my seniors which I think they are going to love. Fun homework!

After I finished some work… I made a quick trip to the mall to grab a few gifts for birthday parties I have next weekend and also to do some returns. I love the mall on a Sunday morning, it’s empty! When I got home Marc and I decided to go on a family walk with Ava & Cooper.



We bundled Ava up, and off we went! It was so nice to get some fresh air, and I am pretty sure Ava loves the stroller. She slept through all the bumps and turns!




DINNER was Turkey Burgers (with red peppers and mushrooms in the mix), Baked french fries, and spinach & chickpea casserole! Delicious.

RECIPES to come. This is a super easy and healthy dinner with lots of good flavor!

Now it’s time to do some more homework :) I will be making workouts for my clients this morning since I have less then 2 weeks before I am back at the YMCA.

Have a good day!

  1. Ava already looks so much older! What a cutie!! And I need to watch Scandal. I’m totally missing out not watching it, especially since I love Kerry Washington. We’re obsessed with Homeland and Mad Men. I also need to watch Breaking Bad.

    • Scandal is awesome! I am obsessed with homeland as well.. what a great show!! Do you have netflix? If not I recommend it because they have breaking bad and mad men on there!

  2. Yup, we have netflix! Although the hardest part is finding the time to watch the shows. By the time we get into an episode of something Allston starts stirring. He’s awesome during the day, but it’s the evening when my husband and I are ready to watch that he gets fussy. Allston is a great baby for the most part, but it sounds like Ava is a dream baby!!

    • That totally happens to us at night.. once we sit down to actually watch a show we have to entertain Ava and I miss 1/2 the episode!

      Ava really is a good baby, but I think it helps that Marc and I are so patient with her. When she fusses we try to make her laugh and not get upset or worked up about her not staying on schedule. How is Allston sleeping at night? We have finally progressed to just 1 middle of the night feeding and we have been blessed with a couple full nights of 6 hr straight sleep!

      • Actually, Allston is pretty good at night! He wakes up twice around 2am and 5am since he is pretty hungry once 3-4 hours have passed. I’m exclusively breast feeding but I wonder if I gave him a pumped bottle at night if he’d last longer because he might take more milk? Hmmm, just brain storming here haha. And he’s going through a stage right now where he’ll only nap if I’m wearing him or he’s laying on me. Is Ava a good napper during the day?
