12/11: Pics from the day

It was a perfect Sunday 🙂

Brunch at Nana’s was the standard amazingness, and everyone on my Dad’s side of the family got to celebrate Kyle and Meg’s engagement.

hanging out with the fam

and Nana’s wonderful food.

She had everyone’s favorites (my beloved egg casserole –she sent me home with leftovers, too), apple puff pancakes with apricots and sausage, potatoes, ham, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, fruit

and the dessert table dreams are made of:

Peach cobbler, blueberry cheesecake and chocolate mousse pie. I had a little bit of each dessert along with my breakfast (egg casserole, fruit and potatoes), and everything was incredible.

After brunch, we headed down to the 4th ave Street Fair to walk around and check out the vendors:

Per usual, there were lots unique creations

and food.

We were still pretty stuffed from Nana’s house, so we just grabbed little snacks.

Pizza for him:

salad and a rice milk latte for her.

As much fun as everything was, the best part of my day was taking this happy little face to the dog park:

Grilling for dinner and planning out the week! On the menu: a few new holiday quickie workouts + some recipes to share

Have a wonderful night <3

    Wow! Your G-mah knows how to create one out of this world feast. That is awesome that you get to hang out with your family so much, such a rare thing now a days. And no, I am not four hundred years old. I just sound like I am.

    Gina I am blown away that you still have such a big smile on your face…after schlepping around the outdoor market, walking, carrying around nearly a full term baby! That you are still smiling being as pregnant as you are…that’s pretty awesome. Thanks for the reminder to just…smile 🙂

    Glad you guys had such a nice day.

    Those wine bottle things look awesome@ I love finding unique things at fairs and things of the like!!!

  15. Janine @ThePurpleGiraffe on December 12, 2011 at 8:40 am

    Love those wine bottle trivets/cheese trays – my father-in-law got us one for Christmas last year with our last name as the vineyard, and the “vintage” was our wedding date. So cool!

  16. Lena @Fit on the Rocks on December 12, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Your family has the cutest get-togethers! All of the food sounds so yummy.

  17. HRCK on December 12, 2011 at 9:40 am

    You look so adorable! 🙂 Your bump is precious. And it’s so great that you and the Pilot take advantage of your city’s offerings.

  18. Lisa on December 12, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Love your updates! PS: Just tried the cookie butter from Trader Joe’s and about fainted, it was so fantastic. Thanks for the recommendation!!

  19. Jolie on December 12, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Gina, I am so sure that I saw your husband on the Amazing Race last night! He was helping the contestants at a Flight School!
