From the ballgame, to the club…

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Hope that you had a great day yesterday! Ours was packed with fun activities: a baseball game, BODYPUMP, a birthday party (the Pilot and Liv went while I taught) and a great date night.


I’ve been to Petco twice (once after the half marathon, and during their Christmas festivities), but it was our first time checking it out for an actual baseball game. 

My cousin works for the Astros, so he set aside some tickets for us. I hadn’t been to a baseball game in quite a while. (My little brother played baseball growing up, so many nights were spent at the park.) I’d forgotten how much fun it was, and how much baseball games feel like summer. We’re also big fans of the snack bar. 😉


 We got some goodies to share, and had a blast cheering, singing, and enjoying some fresh air. The Pilot was able to meet us there, too, so it was a fun family adventure. 


The Pilot and I were invited to check out the new OMNIA club downtown, so we enjoyed a little Wednesday night date night. I wasn’t sure what to wear, as many of the “going out” dresses in my closet are more fitted and don’t quite work right now, so I ventured down to Miss Match. It’s become one of my favorite little shops, as they have beautiful, unique pieces, and an awesome selection of dresses.

Major props to the girl who was working there. I was like, “So this is a random request, but we’re going to a club tonight… and I’m pregnant… and have no idea how this all works with a baby bump.” She grabbed a STACK of dresses for me to try on, which I never would have picked on my own, and they all worked!

Mm dresses

I ended up finding a dress to wear to a friends’ wedding later this month:

Dress for wedding 

and picked this sparkly dress to wear out.

As far as OMINA goes, it was a really cool spot, and will definitely be a huge scene. It was packed, and it wasn’t officially open; I’m pretty sure the grand opening is tonight.


It certainly had a (non-grimy haha) Vegas feel to it. Another girl at the media table was telling me that it felt very much like a Miami club. They had a dance floor with projection screens and flashing lights (and for a while, one guy wearing Bono-style glasses having a solo dance party and he was GETTING IT),


a balcony, and a rooftop area with cabanas and spots to lounge. I especially loved the rooftop aspect, because if you want to get a break from the loud music and have a conversation, you can break away for a little while and talk before heading back to dance. We will definitely be back to check it out!

We also had a delicious late dinner at Greystone Steakhouse.


We shared some appetizers:

Crab cake

(crab cake and a cheese board = everything you need in life),

Cheese board

and I ordered a salad while the Pilot had steak. It was a great date night. <3 We’ve been talking about making it more of a priority, especially since it’s so easy to get sucked into the to-dos and tasks of the day. I kind of like hanging out with him. 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great morning! <3

See ya later today.

    When I saw on Instagram that you were at a club I was like “wife of the year award!” I would say club time is usually my bedtime 🙂 Especially with being pregnant. That’s cool you were invited to check it out before it opened. I can’t even remember the last time we went to a club. Looks like a fun little date night! My husband and I both say we need to do date nights more often, it’s so easy to get sucked into the routine of every day life.

      hahah it is not the norm for me. club time is definitely bed time, but it felt good to be out when it was dark outside 😉 totally agree. sometimes i feel like our conversations are all home/business related, so it’s nice to date each other a little 🙂

  2. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on April 30, 2015 at 10:22 am

    That is hilarious! I’m going to a club and I’m a pregnant. You look great. Gorgeous dresses!

    • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:27 am

      the awesome thing was that i saw quite a few pregnant girls there (my preggo radar is ON)! maybe it’s not as weird as i thought haha.

    • Maria on April 30, 2015 at 10:33 am

      When I think about pregnant women at the club I think of the movie knocked up! 🙂 I did it once while I was pregnant with my daughter. It was for my husband’s best friend’s bday. he was the best man in our wedding.

      • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:39 am

        ahhhh that’s right!!! so good

  3. Cara on April 30, 2015 at 10:29 am

    Those dresses are fantastic! I never would have thought of that style being perfect for baby bumps. 😀

    • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:30 am

      i never would have, either! drop waists are my friend right now

  4. Erin @ Erin's Inside Job on April 30, 2015 at 10:29 am

    That all looks like a great time! I love those dresses and that one for the wedding is super cute. We just got a Rent The Runway about 2 blocks up from me here in Chicago so I am excited to check it out and see what kind of options there are since all my dresses are so outdated!

    • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:30 am

      ahhh that is amazing you have one close to you! i haven’t had a lot of luck with RTR, but i think it would be different if i could see them and try on first

    • Maria on April 30, 2015 at 10:34 am

      Where in Chicago?!

  5. Julie on April 30, 2015 at 10:50 am

    Those dresses both look fabulous on you!

    • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:55 am

      thank you!!

  6. Alex @ True Femme on April 30, 2015 at 10:51 am

    Such a great pic of you and the pilot! I love those dresses you picked out! Very, very chic!

    • Fitnessista on April 30, 2015 at 10:55 am

      thank you, friend! i was so happy the girl there was so awesome and helped me find some great stuff

      • Alex @ True Femme on April 30, 2015 at 10:56 am

        I love amazing salespeople like that! They’re the best!

  7. Andrea on April 30, 2015 at 11:05 am

    That club looks like a blast. It’s fun to do something a little out of the ordinary sometimes! And dancing is always amazing. I giggled at “he was getting it!” haha. I wonder if people say that about me when I’m dancing ….

  8. Holly on April 30, 2015 at 11:55 am

    We were at the game yesterday too! We were sitting on the grass (“park at the park” tickets.) It was awesome for the 2 little ones, so I recommend that spot if your cool with the “cheap seats.” And speaking of the ball park snacks, my 2.5 yr old who is currently refusing most foods ate a hot dog, a bag of popcorn and an ice cream cone. I guess she needed a break from all the health food at home? One last thing…props to you for clubbing while prego.

  9. Amanda on April 30, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    You look fabulous Gina <3

  10. Morgan @ Managing Mommyhood on April 30, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    I really like both of those dresses, but I lover the first one! Also I really really want a soft pretzel right now

  11. Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment on April 30, 2015 at 1:45 pm

    Date nights really are important! You are 100% right on getting sucked into all the “to do” of life. Great dress – you look fab!

  12. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on April 30, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    You deserve some nights away, as your family is soon to get about 25% bigger! 🙂 You look lovely in both dresses. Which reminds me I need to shop for a rehearsal dinner dress for a wedding I’m attending in Florida next month! Have an awesome day, Gina! 🙂

  13. Yaara Leve on April 30, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Gina, those dresses are gorgeous! I love the one you picked out for your friend’s wedding. You look so pretty in both! And again–don’t worry–you’re still so lean! You and the pilot looked so cute at the club pic you posted on IG.

  14. Meg on April 30, 2015 at 7:08 pm

    Love both of those dresses, you look great! Who is the designer of the dress you picked for the wedding?

  15. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on April 30, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    What a fun date night! I love those dresses on you!

  16. Shaina Anderson on May 2, 2015 at 2:14 pm
