Things I am loving lately…


Good morning and Happy Friday!! 

We will be heading to Newport, Rhode Island very shortly for my best friend’s wedding, but first I have a quick post of some things I am loving this week!

I am all about simplicity with my food lately. My life has changed with Ava around and I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen right now. This Upside Down Shepherd’s pie came out fabulous this week. (I made a few changes to the recipe, I used 4-5 tbsp of regular jarred pasta sauce instead of tomato paste, and I added fresh parsley.. it was GOOD!)


Even Ava loved it.


She was so kind to feed Cooper her leftovers too!


For the past couple of weeks I have been taking these BCAA’s before some of my intense workouts. If you don’t know what BCAA’s are they are Branch Chain Amino Acids that can be used to improve exercise performance and reduce muscle breakdown. For more information check out this Supplement Guide. I have definitely seen and improvement in my exercise endurance during my time taking them!


I am not a big clothing shopper believe it or not. I actually wish I was, but every time I go to the mall searching for specific things I NEVER find them :( So I have been doing some online shopping and surprisingly have been enjoying it. I love Old Navy’s new line of workout motivation gear and I find myself wanting to buy all their comfy workout tops! You should definitely check them out!


Plantains in any form! I like them roasted or pan fried


or of course in Chip form with avocado!


 Speaking of avocado. I made a cucumber, tomato, & avocado salad to toss on our turkey burgers the other night, it was pretty darn good. Marc was mad that we didn’t have more of it.


Last but not least… I am loving any pumpkin flavored treat I can get my hands on.


I made these 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies. They are healthy and tasty!

Now we are off to Newport for a long weekend…. I can’t wait. I will be sure to have Marc take lots of pictures during the ceremony so you can see the beautiful bride and of course our bridesmaid dresses!!


I had to post this last picture (Cooper fell asleep with the ball in his mouth… no joke he slept like this for 20 minutes!!)

What is on your agenda this weekend?
Is there anything special you have been loving lately?

Do you love going to weddings?

  1. The smiles on both Ava and Cooper’s faces throughout this post were soooo cute.

    I love going to weddings. I feel like you get to see the people you love at their happiest. I’m definitely not a super emotional person, but I always get emotional at weddings. Even the really cheesy ones. :)
