Blog Update, Birthday Celebrations, and St. Patrick’s Day Pilates

Happy Monday and Happy First Day of Spring!

It’s been quiet over here for a couple weeks..I’ve been working on some technical things on here and it’s so time consuming! I figured I’d pop in and do a quick recap post of the last couple days..they’ve been busy and fun! My new logo is up in the header and there’s small little touches throughout. I’m working on editing my recipes, workouts, and Florida life pages, so stay tuned for that.


Let’s go back to last Sunday which happened to be a Sunday Runday with my running partner Lindsay! We ran a great three miles and ended with a delicious brunch of mimosas and breakfast tacos. Can’t go wrong with that combo!

The rest of the day was spent baking some healthy (box mix!!) banana bread muffins and lounging with my little family of three with Halo Top and movies on the couch


After the weekend, I went to visit my parents at their new house and helped plant a vegetable and fruit garden with my Dad. We have cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, red kale, romaine, spinach, cantaloupe, and carrots to look forward to in a few weeks! 



Baby hugs after gardening!


At the end of the week it was time for some green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Baby’s St. Paddy’s Day onesie and headband were a big hit while we ran a few errands. After running around for the day, Mom and I headed to a St. Patrick’s Day outdoor Pilates class, but not before a quick Starbucks visit for their new spring cups!

It was the most gorgeous evening for an outdoor workout! Pilates was fun and challenging and I was definitely feeling it the next day! The class ended and a little cocktail hour and I sampled some Irish cheeses and other crudite, with a delicious cranberry vodka cocktail. No green beer, but it was a fun way to spend St. Patrick’s Day!


Saturday was spent with some family friends and an outdoor BBQ at my parents new place. Our dear friends gifted baby her first Minnie ears! Can’t wait to take her to the parks and when she’ll grow into them!


After our cookout, we headed to my girl Lindsay’s to pickup this GORGEOUS birthday cake to celebrate my mother in law on Sunday! We requested a devil’s food cake with lots and lots of chocolate and our friend delivered! If you’re in Orlando (or not, they actually ship!) checkout their dessert page for other amazing confections to order!


Sunday it was time to celebrate Brian’s mom! We had a great dinner catered from Tijuana Flats, special cocktails called WooWoos, and the devil’s food cake that was definitely the food highlight of the night! We had so much fun celebrating and it was the perfect way to end the weekend.


The cutest party guest!
