Things I’m loving this week!


Good Morning and Happy Friday! I hope you all have something fun planned for the long weekend. It feels nice knowing we have the extra day to relax and hang out with family & friends!

Tonight we will be heading to Marc’s softball game and then I have a Boot Camp Class schedule for 9:15 Saturday morning if you would like to join us ;)

In case you missed my post yesterday about my amazing client transformation and Sheila’s tips on “How she stocks a healthy kitchen,” please check it out!

I wanted to share some things I have been loving this week with you guys!

On Wednesday Ava and I headed to a new park in Greenwich, CT called Cos Cob Park.


The park is set right on the water, it has an awesome playground for kids, a trail walk along the water and a great field complex for sporting events.


Clearly Ava had a blast and we will be heading there again today to have some more fun with her friends.


These almonds from A&P. If you don’t read nutrition labels most stores sell notes that have added oils, sugars, & salts. This brand has just RAW ALMONDS. This is great and I can mix in my own salt, cranberries, etc!


Ava was on a very bland diet this past week after throwing up several times and having some stomach issues. We eliminated dairy, and have been giving her foods that are pretty dry and plain. She chose to snack on these Popcorners and I must agree they are pretty yummy. They also have only 3 ingredients: corn, sunflower oil, & sea salt! Not bad!


While shopping at A&P the other day, Ava spotted these freeze dried apple Fruit Crisps. I wonder why???? marketing companies are so smart, Mickey will catch any kids attention. They are actually only dried apples so they are super healthy!


I’m a huge Chicken Marsala fan. It’s an easy recipe to whip up and it tastes great. I have a new recipe to share with you next week and it’s Gluten Free.


I know I have posted almond milk before for things I’m loving but Stop & Shop has their own brand and it’s usually around $2. You can’t beat it. In case you haven’t tried almond milk, it has almost 1/2 of your daily needs for calcium. That’s pretty amazing considering regular milk doesn’t even come close!


Sometimes I want to eat veggies but nothing is appealing. On a couple of afternoons this week I have popped in one of these zucchini pancakes to have with my afternoon snack. They are made with simple ingredients and they are quite tasty! I’m definitely a fan.


The last thing I want to share with you is this Pink Orchid Candle that I bought at Bed Bath & Beyond a few weeks ago. In case you didn’t know I am slightly obsessed with candles and this brings a nice spring scent to our house when I light it!

That’s it for this week, we have a couple of BBQ plans for the weekend that I am looking forward to and besides that I hope to get to the beach so we can see Ava run around and play in the water like the crazy little girl she is :)

What are some things you are loving this week?

do you have any fun holiday weekend plans?

  1. Kelly, I’m a huge fan of almond milk and the affordable stop & shop brand it is always in my grocery list as well as their natural creamy peanut butter. This week, I also bought watermelon, papaya and mango from there and I’ve been snacking on them along with greek yogurt and almonds. The warm weather gets me into eating more (refreshing) fruits and raw vegetables like carrots and celery with hummus.
    Happy Memorial Day! :)

    • Hi Joselin!! I love stop & shops natural peanut butter. I buy one almost every week because we go through it so much. Their mangoes have been delicious too.

      I totally agree that I am eating more refreshing foods now that its warmer out. We have been going through salads and watermelon like crazy! Have a good holiday weekend :)
