Mother’s Day weekend

Hope you all had an amazing weekend! Here are some pics from ours πŸ™‚ Not in the mix: the 90% of the time we were at on the couch in our jammies, and trip to urgent care (wanted to make sure Livi didn’t have an ear infection; thankfully she was all clear and feeling much better Sunday).Β

    I hope Livi starts to feel better soon, though I’m sure the extra snuggles were not too bad. Looks like a beautiful weekend all the same. Happy Mother’s Day!

    I was in San Diego this weekend and I went to Tiki Port (saw it on here and wanted to check it out)! The Beachcomber bowl was so yummy! I can’t wait to go back and get it again sometime πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 5:05 pm

      ahhh! that’s one of my favorite ones! the drifter is my favorite post long run treat: it has berries and chocolate chips. insane

  14. Dede on May 12, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    Looks like a great weekend.

  24. Angie on May 12, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Looks like you had a great mother’s day!!! those acai bowls look divine! I wish we had some of those here in North FL!! I made my own last week because of you and your quest πŸ™‚ Hope Liv feels better quick! It’s so sad when they’re not feeling well.

    • Angie on May 12, 2014 at 4:18 pm

      OH and are you talking about that Elvis magnet on your fridge? Because that’s a gem!!! lol!! j/k πŸ˜€

  25. Rhiannon @ Bound to be a Buckeye on May 12, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    Great pictures! I love Liv’s jeggings πŸ™‚ So adorable!

  26. Jess on May 12, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    Looks like a nice weekend, despite Livi not feeling the best! Does she like school? Did you end up sending her to a montessori school? I remember you were thinking about it ages ago.

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      she LOVES the school. we are so happy with it πŸ™‚ no. we were planning on sending her to one here, but it was too far of a drive. her preschool here is very similar to the one she was at in tucson

      • jessica on May 13, 2014 at 9:36 am

        I would love a post on things that helped you pick a preschool. I have a daughter turning two this month and have started to think ahead about this, but not sure where to start.

  27. Brittany on May 12, 2014 at 6:33 pm

    Love Love Love that last pic. She is so adorable!

    So is Livi in school now? can you do a post on what it was like sending her to school for the first time? also how did you choose a school that was right for you and Liv?

  28. Sophie Petit on May 12, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    that chili mango drink looks so amazing, happy late mothers day everyone. The Elvis magnet is pretty awesome indeed. lol.

  29. Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome on May 12, 2014 at 11:06 pm

    Looks like a wonderful weekend and fabulous Mother’s Day! Where do you get the acai bowls? Those look amazing! I’ll be in San Diego in July and might have to hunt them down πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2014 at 1:03 am

      tiki port! let me know when you’re here and i’ll meet you for one πŸ™‚ the kiddos can play! xo

      • Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome on May 15, 2014 at 12:37 am

        That would be a blast! We haven’t decided if we are bringing our little man yet or not. I’ll definitely get in touch though and hopefully we can connect!

  30. Shaina on May 13, 2014 at 2:04 am

    I love that magnet!! I got a hand painted coffee mug. πŸ™‚ Somehow my coffee tastes better in it.

  31. Lindsey on May 13, 2014 at 11:10 am

    I wish you’d post a photo of Livi smiling! You always look great but I’d love to see her looking happy πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2014 at 5:18 pm

      she doesn’t always smile for photos. i was the same way as a kiddo- i’d either make a super cheesy smile or poker-faced

  32. Cassie Vaughn on May 13, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    So sweet! Glad you had a great day!

  33. Shelly on May 14, 2014 at 7:28 am

    Lovely family photos!

    Has The Pilot started a new fitness regime? Looking in great shape and I remember a recent marathon?

    • Fitnessista on May 14, 2014 at 10:46 am

      i’m pretty sure he hasn’t worked out since the marathon and he looks amazing. i just don’t understand haha.
