Flying Fish

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday and HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN day! I’m stoked to watch some basketball.

How’s the morning going?
It’s a gloomy one here in Little Rock, with lots of rain and clouds. Thank you again for all of your awesome suggestions for fun things to do here! We are excited to check some out today and explore the museum.

After we got in yesterday, we checked into the hotel and headed to my SIL’s house to hang out with everyone and meet baby Nylah.

Liv is in love.

(Check out those little booties! I die.)

It was so nice to catch up with the fam, and then we headed down to the River Market for lunch at Flying Fish. We haven’t had Flying Fish in years, and it was EVERYTHING.

You order at the counter, and can choose from grilled, fried, sandwiches, chicken dishes, or salads.

Flying fish order

I got the grilled salmon plate, which came with zucchini, squash, and the best red beans and rice. 


Lunch at flying fish

Oh, and a side of pickled green tomatoes… because pickled green tomatoes.

After lunch, we headed to a game and agriculture museum which had fish, baby alligators and various wildlife (in taxidermy form). Liv loved it, and it was the perfect afternoon outing before heading back to the hotel for naptime.

Yesterday evening, the Pilot and I both got in a workout at the gym -they had a parents’ room, so Liv could go in with me and play while I worked out- and grabbed some groceries to make breakfast-for-dinner at my SIL’s house. It was an awesome, low-key night with everyone.

This morning, Liv and I are getting ready for the day while the Pilot gets some flight stuff together -he’s going to take our nephew flying while we’re here- and then heading off on the day’s adventures.

Something to do: This muscular endurance workout. It’s one of my all-time faves, and fully fatigues each muscle group for fantastic results.

    Today is a rest day for me, so I am just cleaning up around the house, finished my Costco haul, and now am working on some blog things. I should really be studying for my NASM exam, but what fun is that? Have a great trip!

    We have a bracket at work so I’m cheering way more than I normally would for basketball in hopes I win the pool! haha

    Have a great time with family!

    Liv is too cute…I think that is my first comment on every blog of yours that she is in! 😉 but, she just is!

    Not too much planned today, physical therapy, the gym, and working on blog stuff. It is raining here so I am feeling a little lazy!

    Have a great trip!

    Salmon looks yummy! And loving the baby pics, so keep those coming. How cute is Liv with the baby? Have so much fun exploring and spending time with family! I’m off to a reformer Pilates class:)

    That picture of Liv is just too cute. Yoga for me tonight. That salmon looks delicious!

    Cincinnati is my hometown, so unfortunately, when I watch basketball tonight I’ll be rooting for Xavier!

    Ah your baby holding a baby… too cute! I remember being her age and playing mommy to all my dolls– I totally thought I was ready for parenthood ha!

    Are you guys staying on Base? I was stationed there for 3 years (we’re at Travis now – just a bit North of you!). I love the River Trail, but look-up The Old Mill in North Little Rock – it’s the Mill that was in Gone With the Wind! Liv can feed the ducks, too. I love the wine bar in North Little Rock, – Crush Wine Bar in Argenta, and my friends just opened a coffee shop called Mylo Coffee on Kavanough Blvd in Hillcrest/Heights area. It’s seriously the best coffee, and the baked goods are unreal. Enjoy!

    Fun fitness plans on the horizon! I have my last CrossFit Open workout on Friday and my gym is doing a little Friday Night Lights competition, morning classes vs night. So I’ll be representing the 6 am class! And then we’re all going out to celebrate afterwards. Poor planning… I’m also running a 5K Saturday morning! It’s the Phillies Charity 5K, so there’s a bunch of great swag (game tickets, long sleeve T, a medal) and it finishes in the stadium with the cool down lap on the warning track. My legs will hate me afterwards, oh well 🙂

    Go WSU Shockers!!! 🙂

  13. Samantha on March 26, 2015 at 11:41 am

    GO CATS! And by CATS, I mean KENTUCKY! 🙂

    I love the chipotle flavored Cholula! So good!

  15. Traci on March 26, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    Chili garlic Cholula is the best!!

  16. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on March 26, 2015 at 2:09 pm

    Fitness for the day: 20 minute HIIT cardio + strength burst to finish it off. I finally made your perfect protein pancakes from your book this morning and they were everything! I loved them and they totally squashed my craving for pancakes.
