-Flamenco Festival at Casa Vicente aka proof that food can really still taste good after our trip to Italy.

Casavicente

We took our tiny flamenco dancer, who absolutely loved the show. She was mesmerized by the incredible music and dancing.

Flamenco fest

(The funny face she made when we said, “Smile!”)

She ate all of her food -not surprising, because it was deeeeelicioso- clapped and yelled “Ole!” along with us.

Everything about it made my soul so happy.

The sangria was lovely, too πŸ™‚

    Looks like an amazing weekend and I love the halloween outfit, she looks so cute in it! Bet she’ll get a lot of candy with it πŸ™‚ I’d love to make the granola bars. Do you have the recipe somewhere?

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:46 am

      yes, i’ll post all the deets tomorrow!

    Love your hair! That’s such a great length for you–it really frames your face well.

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:45 am

      thank you!

    Man those sandals really rock!! They are doing well for you. I remember you showing them a couple months back and I LOVED them, went to Tarjay, tried them on and almost fell on my face when the toe flapped down and curled under, lol! I have these silly narrow feet and they were too wide for me (wide=normal). Sad.

    Cheap, durable and super cute….I cry.

    My soul got all filled up this weekend with the (finally!!) fall weather in L.A. and working on our new/old house. Makes me so happy πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:45 am

      awww man! they are seriously one of my favorite pairs. hopefully tarjay will get on the narrow sandal train for next year

    Love your dress and Livi’s too. What are you going to be for Halloween? I’m thinking of ideas now!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:44 am

      i have NO idea. i could wear fairy wings with a shirt and jeans, but that means the pilot would have to be a man fairy. i’m not sure how he’d agree to that

    Aw what a beautiful family night!

  10. Rachel on September 23, 2013 at 7:50 am

    Can you comment on your gym flooring? We are exploring options for our home gym right now. What did you use? Was it easy to instal? Do you like it? Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:43 am

      we got it from amazon to put in one car area of the garage. i’m going to film my workout videos in there so we wanted some gym flooring to make it look legit. it looks and feels great, and all you have to do it roll it out. super easy!

  11. Lisa on September 23, 2013 at 8:12 am

    I love that Olivia already has her Halloween outfit picked out. Too cute.
    Looks like a fun weekend!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:42 am

      we saw it at home goods and in the store she was saying, “wear it? wear it?” haha

  12. Madeline @ Food Fitness and Family on September 23, 2013 at 8:14 am

  17. Alex @ Kenzie Life on September 23, 2013 at 8:50 am

    I bet “Tiny Dancer” could be Olivia’s song πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:42 am

      it totally could!!

  18. Sara @ LovingOnTheRun on September 23, 2013 at 9:02 am

    Love your hair! I am cutting mine tomorrow somewhat similar to that! I am scared because I haven’t cut my hair in about 3 years! haha Looks like you had an AMAZING weekend! πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:42 am

      don’t be scared! i chickened out for so long, but am so glad i finally did it

  19. Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy on September 23, 2013 at 10:08 am

    I love that dress that you’re wearing!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:41 am

      thank you!! πŸ™‚

  20. Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries on September 23, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Looks like a great weekend!

    Random question for you: I always see you with your super cute cross body purses… So do you not carry a diaper bag for Liv? Does your husband carry it or do you leave it in the car? I would love to start using a purse, but I don’t really want to lug around a purse AND a diaper bag. Just curious what you do!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 10:41 am

      we put the necessary stuff in a small lululemon bag that we tote around- we call it the “hit and run” bag. it’s not very fancy, but much easier than carrying a diaper bag. i have a giant diaper bag, but it ended up being filled with things we didn’t really need (and crumbs). so each day, i’ll put some snacks, water, diapers, wipes, sunscreen and small toys in the lulu bag. in the car, we have an extra outfit, a hat and shoes if we need it

      I’ve often wondered this myself! πŸ™‚

  21. FitBritt@MyOwnBalance on September 23, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Flamenco! How fun! I would love to see something like that. Liv is adorable as per usual! πŸ™‚

  22. Sam Terry on September 23, 2013 at 10:26 am

    I’m a belly dancer and was fortunate enough to do a tour in Europe with Flamanco dancers and singers… “el duende” the spirit of spanish gypsies mingled with “al tarab” the spirt of the egytian gypsies.. either way, your soul really does become “happy” because you get int touch with a really authentic part of your being.. wow, hope that makes sense to you!! πŸ™‚

  23. Carrie on September 23, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Looks like fun! Gina, I loved your sandals the first time you posted about them, but when I went to Target to pick some up, I realized they were not going to be supportive enough for me (I have flat feet). I was bummed out but started looking around for similar ones and found these: http://www.clarksusa.com/eng/product/indira_rue/26064386

    I got the silver and black, which isn’t pictured, but the gold and tan ones look a lot like yours. They are Clarks, so they are super comfortable and supportive … they are my new favorite pair of sandals, and they are on sale! πŸ™‚ I think I got mine from Shoes.com.

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 12:44 pm

      ohhh i love those! my target ones will probably only live until the end of the season, so maybe i’ll get a pair of the clarks on sale to wear next summer?

  24. Ashlee@HisnHers on September 23, 2013 at 11:47 am

    i dont think I had seen a good picture of your hair since it was cut. It looks adorable on you! You look younger. Thats always a plus, right?!

  25. Jacquelyn @justjacq on September 23, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    lol that face is just perfect!

    • Fitnessista on September 23, 2013 at 1:11 pm

      haha right?? best ever πŸ™‚

  26. Anna @ Fitness Γ  la Anna on September 23, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    Oh my goodness, that face – so adorbs! Looks like you had a great weekend πŸ™‚

  27. Michelle on September 23, 2013 at 5:59 pm

  28. Floey on September 23, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    I don’t know why I can’t get into macaroons πŸ™

  29. Christina R on September 23, 2013 at 9:34 pm
