A dose of Heritage

Hey hey hey :) Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend going so far?

Yesterday, Livster and I enjoyed a lazy Saturday afternoon

me and liv2

while the Pilot took our neighbors to check out the air show.


(+ Sonoran hot dogs at Guero Canelo for lunch)

We’re so lucky to have amazing neighbors on our street- these are the ones that offered me coconut water the day we moved in, and I knew it was destiny :)

He came back home and we met up with friends for Mexican night at El Charro, land of glorious guacamole


and creepy mariachi paintings.

This morning, the planes weren’t running, so we were able to take the fam on a little trip to D-M for the Heritage Conference



check out the old war birds




and the planes we know so well.

Back for a lil’ Egg McMuffin:

egg muffin

Brown rice English muffin, Dijon, turkey, 2 eggs, greens

English muffins aren’t my first choice for bread options –I’d rather have two pieces of toast- but decided to change it up. The brown rice Food For Life muffins are good- not as crumbly or chewy as other GF options I’ve tried.

Rest of the day:

  14. Maureen says:

    I was going to say the same thing everyone else did – you are really beautiful in that picture. Motherhood agrees with you! Looks like a fun time checking out all of those planes – I love the nose art on those things! Take care and have yourself a wonderful week ahead.


  15. i really love that baby wrap you’re wearing. and you are seriously glowing in every picture with liv.

    This is going to sound weird but I have always wondered it. Other military wives feel free to answer too. Do the kids that live on base call adults by their first name or is it always mr or mrs? Or does it depend on the person?

    • Fitnessista says:

      most of the kids i’ve met say miss and mister with first or last names. many of them have called me miss gina before

      • Brittany says:

        Do you prefer Miss Gina? i am just curious because I live in Boston ( I’m a civilian) and here you never call adults by their last names unless it is an older person. Is the pilot Mr. Tom?

  17. Steffany says:

    Love the pix ! (: Especially the ones of you or the Pilot, or both of you and the planes (: Our base held our air show last year on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. Took tons of pictures. (:

  18. u look blissfully happy :)…love the fam pic, the first pic of you and livi…and the one with Tom leaning on the plane.
    Gina, do have any specific brand recommendations for hair vitamins?…u have gorgeous hair. I currently take biotin and GNC ultranourish. Other readers too, pls feel free to comment. :)

    • Fitnessista says:

      thank you, geetha- it’s an amazing time over here. we’re very blessed <3
      i take a trader joe’s prenatal vitamin and eat lots of healthy fats, which i think has helped my hair a lot
