At Home Date Night with Datebox

At Home Date Night with Datebox

Hi friends!

Hope you’re all having a marvelous week so far.  We’ve got another busy one which is a trend these days.  April/May are always pretty busy months for us and this year is no different.  In just 5 weeks we have 1 bridal shower, 2 baby showers, 7 birthday’s (including The Love Nugget’s) and Mother’s Day.  I need to start an April/May celebration fund!

It’s all fun stuff though and great since it makes the time go by faster.  This past weekend we were supposed to go out of town for my Dad’s birthday but something came up and we couldn’t make it.  So we took advantage of a night at home and had a little date night using a fun new monthly service called Datebox!

Monday Date Night

Monday Date Night

Hi friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful Monday!   Ours was a little thrown off since we were gone all weekend and didn’t get home until late Sunday.  I taught the 6:00am class at Afterburn then after taking The Love Nugget to school came home to put away the laundry, clean up, meal plan and get some work done online.  I try to make sure I have one day at home every week to tackle some household things so I’m not feeling too overwhelmed throughout the week.  I wouldn’t say I’m obsessive about my house being clean but definitely try to keep it clutter free and as tidy as I can.  This has been becoming more and more difficult lately as I find myself busier every day.  Not only that but since our backyard is still dirt,

Hi there!

How’s your week going?  Half-way to Friday!  Which I’m looking forward to as we have a day trip planned into San Francisco to watch a Giants game.  Go Giants!

Fitness Friday – Signs you’re exercising too much

Happy Friday!

Is anyone else doing a happy dance for Friday!  I sure am, for some reason this was just one that I wanted gone.  Nothing bad really just that funk I mentioned and nasty winds making things worse.  Luckily the weather for the weekend is supposed to be gorgeous and we have plans with family and friends 🙂

Yesterday was actually a really great day!

Sunday Meal Planning and Date Night!!!

Sunday Meal Planning and Date Night!!!

Yesterday a few things happened that haven’t happened in quite some time.  First, I went to the mall… by myself!  I’m so used to having a stroller in tow that I went out of my walked right past he escalator to get to the elevator when trying to head to the second floor!  Ha!  Then, the hubby and I wen to a movie, dinner and a wine bar while The Love Nugget enjoyed himself at my cousin’s house.  It was glorious!  We went and saw Oz at the Imax theater downtown in 3D.

It was good.  Very cool special effects but I sort of wish we would have gone to see Silver Linings Playbook.  I’ve heard that was such a great movie and have been wanting to see it but for some reason we only though of Oz when we picked our date night.  Oh well, guess we’ll have to wait until it comes out on DVD.

After the movie we went to dinner at a place called Pizza Rock.  It’s a pretty cool pizza restaurant that has lots of different types of pizza (obviously).  They even had a few gluten-free but I didn’t feel like getting a whole pie to myself.  So the hubby and I shared a salad and Margherita  pizza.  Yum!

Sorry, crappy iphone photos…

Since we didn’t have to rush home, we stopped into a wine bar on our way back to the car.  They had tasting flights for a few local wineries some we had visited before and some we had not.  We each got a separate flight and were pleasantly surprised by the generous pours they gave us.

As well as the wine.  It was delicious and so nice to sit, enjoy some wine and chat.

This morning I’m going to try out a crossfit class for the first time!  I’m going with the hubby so hopefully he can help me out some.  Nervous but excited!  Then my brother and his wife are coming by for a visit this afternoon.  We haven’t seen them since Christmas so it will be nice to visit with them.

I managed to get a little meal planning done yesterday morning but we are up in the air for next weekend so I left those days blank.  Hoping to go visit some family if we have a chance.

Sunday – Salmon Burgers with sweet potato fries

Monday – Spaghetti Squash Bake

Tuesday – Grilled Chicken with Caprese Salad

Wednesday – Paleo Turkey Meatloaf

Thursday – Tacos (chicken or fish… not sure yet)

Friday – Chicken and Veggie Kabobs.

Saturday & Sunday – ?????

The weather is supposed to be beautiful this week so we’ll be doing some outdoor grilling for sure!
