Weekend Highlights


This weekend flew by!! How is it Monday already? I have just 1 week left before I am back at the Y personal training and instructing classes. I am going to soak up as much Ava time as possible!!


Friday I did get some food prep in… Chicken crusted parmesan, fresh cut pineapple (because I eat 2 a week!), & bran muffins w/ applesauce. Not a whole lot of preparation but it helps!

Let’s start with a little recap of my weekend. Friday night Marc and I headed to Barcelona on Greenwich Avenue for dinner. We love their tapas and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

We ordered 6 tapas.. crispy brussel sprouts with siracha sauce, garlicky broccoli rabe, butternut squash with pepitas and manchego cheese, steak with truffle sauce, albondigas (beef/pork meatballs) and duck meatballs.

My favorite were the butternut squash and brussel sprouts. They were AMAZING. I might go back just to get those 2 again. I love that Barcelona’s food menu changes with what is in season. They always inspire me to try new things and also experience new flavors to cook with. I have re-made some of their dishes and have even incorporated them into our weekly dinner menus!

Saturday morning I was super excited to head to the YMCA to practice my Group Power workout with a couple of the instructors. It felt great to run through the routine!  I got a pretty good workout in too. I can’t wait to teach it next Monday.


Saturday night was fun… we headed to my best friend’s sons 1st Birthday party.


On Sunday morning, we quickly got Ava ready and headed to Rhode Island for our niece’s 2nd Birthday. Yes this weekend was packed with kid parties but so much fun. Our niece is SUPER cute, and just loves Ava. She even held her, how cute!


After a crazy busy weekend.. I thought I would make today just as jam-packed. I am now off to practice the Group Power workout at home while Ava is napping! Then I am going to head to Target to get fun baby stuff for Ava to bring to daycare with her next week, and lastly take Cooper to the dog park for some play time.

Have a great day!

  1. Ava is a doll! We actually were convinced that we were having a girl & we picked the name “Ava” – but we ended being surprised with a sweet baby boy! :)

    Just looked at your turkey burger recipe – looks delicious! We make turkey burgers every week – I love them! My new obsession is adding buffalo sauce to them.

    • Ava’s a great name :)
      I am going to try the buffalo sauce in my turkey burger next time. I love spicy foods that’s a fabulous idea!
