2/17: Pics from the day



Home goods




Bread  1 of 1

Not pictured:

-Last night’s date night. We went out for dinner and cocktails, sat in a loud bar area with live music, and it was awesome. We thought about seeing a movie, but ended up just hanging out and demolishing some sushi rolls. For any Tucson friends, the firecracker roll at Sakura is to diiieeeee for.

-My friend’s newborn snoozing on my chest today. It made my ovaries sting for a second but then I remembered how good it feels to be sleeping when it’s dark outside.

-Today’s BBQ. Livi got to see her little friends twice this weekend, and absolutely loved it. One of the Pilot’s colleagues scooped a huge handful of chips onto his plate and said, “Put this on your blog!” (See- it’s on my blog! He said he would do an interview for me, too haha).

-The other piece of Julian’s Bakery bread. I really wanted to love it, but am sorry to say that I think it’s an insult to all bread lovers. It tastes like egg whites and sawdust had a lovechild, but is palatable with cocoa almond spread and sunflower seed butter πŸ˜‰

-Our house destruction/moving/construction zone. We’re in the process of moving rooms around (office to the loft, guest room to the office, Livi to her big girl room) and it’s going to feel so good when construction mode is over.

No gym for this girl today– still sore from last week’s intense teaching schedule so I’m letting my body recover for another day. I’m excited to join you for workout 4 tomorrow!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend <3

    Gina Liv just looks SO adorable in that pic with your hubby! She’s at that adorable smiley smiley phase, I can tell! My niece is just about there now and grins whenever I see her… :).

    I love blueberries and banana together – two of my favourite fruits at breakfast time. Your eats look great!

    We are moving to Tucson in May, and all these pictures of fresh fruits/veggies and warm clothes makes me even more excited to get there! Livi is getting so big!! She is your mini me!

    On a completely unrelated note, where did you get your cute sandals?? Those are super cute!

    I hear ya on the construction chaos. Me and my son stayed with the in-laws all last week while my hubby did some house renovations. The main part of it is done but my house is still not quite back to normal yet. The dust is never ending…but it’s so worth it!

    Haha My ovaries have also been burning lately. Our son turns 1 in two weeks and seeing babies makes me want another one and then I think about what it would be like to care for a newborn and a small toddler…Eek! I think I’ll try to hold off another year or so. My hat is off to the parents who raise multiple children very close in age!

    Looks like a great weekend! Good to know about the Julian’s bread. I’ve been wanting to try their Paleo bread but it’s so expensive. I’m glad to hear it wasn’t all that great anyway πŸ˜‰

  12. Kim on February 18, 2013 at 8:15 am

    I like your day in pics!!
    Family love shines through in them – awesome!!!

  13. Ali @ Peaches and Football on February 18, 2013 at 8:51 am

    The more I see TJ’s sunflower butter the more I am dying to try it!!

    Gosh Liv is getting so big!! What a cute pic of her and dad! πŸ™‚

  14. Sheena on February 18, 2013 at 9:10 am

    I love that picture of you blowing bubbles with Liv! I remember when you were pregnant and wrote that one of the things you were looking forward to the most was blowing bubbles with your baby.

    Is the pilot’s colleague hot and single? Methinks you should host a “win a date with a pilot” charity auction. πŸ˜‰

  15. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on February 18, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I love that daddy daughter pic! And Livi playing with bubbles, that never gets old. Josh and I had a blast playing with bubbles this weekend at THON.

  16. Tracy on February 18, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Julian Bakery bread: Did you try the coconut or almond flour bread?

  17. Ashley @ Life and Fitness on February 18, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Cute sandals.

  18. Celia on February 18, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    Haha! I just showed Tim, he is excited he made your blog. πŸ™‚ It was great seeing you guys Sunday! Love the above pic of Livi and Tom!

  19. Brittany @ Kitchen::Candid on February 19, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    Those pictures of Liv are beyond adorable!! She has such a sweet smile!!

  20. Emily on February 20, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    I love your Pics from the Day series. It’s a fun weekly treat! πŸ™‚

    Livi had the cutest reaction to the snow! Strangely enough, we didn’t get as much snow as usual this year. I can’t say I’m complaining, because I just can’t drive in the snow.

    The mango salsa on your lunch looks amazing! I hope your friend shares the recipe for it. The sweet potato brownies also look delicious.
