  4. Amy on November 21, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    I love your Lulu! Is that a Lolo purple top under the jacket? Or the top of the pants that I’m seeing. I’d love to know. Great outfit =)

  9. Carolyn on November 21, 2010 at 10:34 pm

    Looks like you had a great first day back in Tucson Gina! Is Tucker eagerly awaiting veggies to fall right into mouth? Dinner looks amazing.

  10. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on November 21, 2010 at 10:37 pm

  12. hippierunner on November 21, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Glad to see you so happy! It radiates through the computer screeen! 🙂

  13. Stephanie @ LungesandLunch on November 21, 2010 at 11:25 pm

    Loooove love love those measuring spoons! I need to trade in my plastic measuring spoons in a bad way

  14. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on November 21, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    Love that Trader Joe’s pic! (and drooling over your cute Lulu clothes!) 😉 I love going to World Market, too– it’s hard to walk out of there without cute new kitchen stuff every time I visit!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend with your family!

  15. Mi-An Dela Cruz on November 22, 2010 at 12:11 am

    you may be far from your pilot but at least you have your family love! 🙂 yes love your lulu outfit! i’m thinking of working there…seasonal, they are hiring for the holidays! is the discount pretty good? 🙂 seems like it bc it would be hard to afford lulu gear!

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 12:35 am

      the discount is extremely generous 🙂

  16. Carla on November 22, 2010 at 12:12 am

    I have that same outfit LOL !!!! Welcome home and enjoy this gorgeous weather we have been having! 🙂 hopefully it doesnt rain too much while your here <3

  17. Kiran on November 22, 2010 at 1:17 am

    The foods looks so yummy! I’ve got to learn how to cook salmon 🙂

  18. AnneW on November 22, 2010 at 1:38 am

    Show what you got at Trader Joe’s! I’m always looking for new things to try there! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 10:11 am

      all i got was ingredients for dinner- salmon, veggies, butternut squash… and chocolate 🙂

  19. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on November 22, 2010 at 5:41 am

    Cant wait to see the gift guide post but in the meantime, i can FEEL and sense the joy in you and this post! I am so happy for you that you’re home! And the salmon looks stellar! 🙂

  20. Cara Craves... on November 22, 2010 at 6:01 am

    It’s so refreshing to spend some quality time with the fam.
    Have a special time!

  21. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on November 22, 2010 at 6:17 am

    You know what would make the action shot in front of Trader Joe’s better? Including parking lot randoms with their confused expressions. hahaha. I would love to see how people react to these pictures. The general population simply doesn’t understand the joy a natural foods store can evoke in we blogworld crazies. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 10:10 am

      hahah! we definitely got a lot of weird looks from people walking by

  22. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 22, 2010 at 6:44 am

    That picture is so adorable!

  23. Lauren on November 22, 2010 at 6:55 am

    So happy your heart is full with your family! 🙂

  24. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on November 22, 2010 at 7:25 am

    It’s also the land of flip flops, clearly!! All winter my toes are so sad at being in real shoes…I’m jealous you can wear flip flops pretty much all year 🙂 I’m glad you’re having such a wonderful time with your family!!

  25. alexa on November 22, 2010 at 7:49 am

    What style is the Lulu hoodie? Love!!

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 10:09 am

      scuba 🙂

  26. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on November 22, 2010 at 7:56 am

    There’s no better feeling than being home with the family and enjoying a great meal together. 😀

  27. Brooke on November 22, 2010 at 9:07 am

    I HEART those measuring cups/spoons!!!!!! I was able to find the measuring cups, but I can’t find the spoons anywhere! 🙁

  28. Pure2raw twins on November 22, 2010 at 9:07 am

    Have a great time with your family!!!

    xoxo
    Michelle

  29. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on November 22, 2010 at 9:08 am

    I love the pic of you by Trader Joes!!! And those World Market spoons are too adorable.

  30. Ashley on November 22, 2010 at 9:46 am

    Hey – I recognize that Trader Joes! (I live in Tucson) ~ Welcome back! Out of curiosity, what type of exercise/workouts do you do in Tucson: hit up the hike/bike trails, drop into some yoga happy hour, or do u just do weight routines at the ‘rents’ place?

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 10:09 am

      hey! usually i take classes and do weights at la fitness. this time, i’m going to take a lot more yoga and dance classes. where do you like to workout?

  31. Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather on November 22, 2010 at 9:59 am

    That fish looks delish. Have fun with the fam 🙂

  32. Hanna on November 22, 2010 at 11:58 am

    I love the tights you are wearing! I have been looking for some just like them…may I ask where you got them?

    • Fitnessista on November 22, 2010 at 3:29 pm

      lululemon wunder under crops. i wear them all the time!!!

  33. mm on November 22, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    haha – you should get bonus advertising money from lulu based on all the comments above. 🙂 But it is a super-cute outfit, and you look like you’re happy and having fun in the pics! I’m glad you’re able to be with your fam for the holidays. I also miss World Market and lulu!! I can’t wait until I visit my family in Dallas over Christmas, there will be some serious shopping taking place! 🙂

  34. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on November 22, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    I love World Market! they have the cutest things. 🙂
