Monday rolled around pretty quickly but my weekend was great, how was yours??
My mom was so kind Friday night and let Marc and I go out for dinner! We chose to go to Barcelona! In case you have never been, Barcelona is a Spanish Tapas Wine Bar. We absolutely love it there!
This restaurant has helped me expand my palate and try new foods & flavors! Plus it makes for a great date night.
Marc and I ordered several tapas… Albondigas (meatballs), spinach & chickpea casserole, broccoli rabe with garlic & oil, shrimp with salsa verde, beet salad, sliders, & shishitto peppers! It sounds like a lot but they are small plates.
My favorite was the spinach casserole and the meatballs. The peppers were good but soo spicy! I like spice but not when I can’t think or speak.. JK
It was a perfect date night and seriously an hour out feels like an eternity!!
Saturday morning Marc grabbed us some Dunkin coffees, we loaded up the car and headed to Rhode Island. I always get excited for RI because its a mini vacay and we get to see family.
In the afternoon my brother in law took some AMAZING pictures of Ava for us. I am not really good at taking photos so it was so nice of him to snap some pics. This is a sneak peak.
We had some quality time & good food! Marc’s dad is a great cook and always makes delicious meals for us. I was too hungry so I didn’t snap a picture, but for lunch we had grilled salmon over an italian salad. Yum. Dinner was takeout from The Cove Restaurant… I had a blackened chicken sandwich (No Bun) and veggies
It was definitely hard doing Paleo on the go and at my in-laws but I made it work! Today is the last day of the challenge and I have decided to continue with an 80/20 format. Paleo 80% of the time I have a lot to share about my experience!
When we got back Sunday we unpacked and enjoyed watching some football at my parents. The Patriots got their first win!
Cooper could not keep his eyes open for the game!!
I also got in a speedy workout while watching the Patriots. I did a bodyweight circuit that I will share with you tomorrow!
I hope you all have a great day!
