Baby Shower!!


This morning was quite the busy morning for me with no breaks!! I was at the gym for 6am and trained 1 client before I powered up for my Group Power class.. it was awesome and such a good workout my muscles are still tired. I quickly ate protein bar and trained another client before teaching my senior class. I feel like I have been re-fueling all day and trying to make healthy choices to keep my body happy!!

On to the good stufffff………

Yesterday was my baby shower! It was such an awesome day and I got to spend it with all of my close family & friends. Baby G got so many amazing gifts and we are very thankful for them.

My mom’s friend Debbie was generous and let my mom host the shower at her house!  Let me tell you it couldn’t have been more perfect. The shower had a fall theme with lots of autumn decor and pumpkins galore.

And now on to the food… I don’t think there’s a word to describe about how tasty it was. Debbie’s husband is a chef, and he made a fabulous brunch for us. On the menu was cannoli stuffed french toast, frittata, bacon, pumpkin muffins, salad, chicken marsala, fall harvest butternut squash lasagna, etc.

When it comes to food, I do indulge but I make smart choices. I am always conscious of what I am eating and try not to make my plate full of all unhealthy items. It’s all about balance! …. it’s funny how I only took a picture of the salad


After we ate brunch it was time to open presents!

We got lots of cute stuff and it was so much fun seeing all the little baby items. Especially the little Yankees T-shirt.. Marc is not happy about this and I am sure he will try to buy her a red sox shirt.


Dessert was chocolate mousse, chocolate chip cookies, & pumpkin cookies!


My friends!


More family & my college friends!!

The shower made me want Baby G to arrive sooner rather then later!! It was so much fun to open all the cute baby items and I can’t wait to set up the rest of the nursery. She is one lucky girl already!
