Beach day:

It’s hard to believe this is the same little one who was once afraid of sand. We can’t get her out of the water now 🙂

More gorgeous scenery:

And flatbreads, purchased because the sample guy wouldn’t stop feeding us. The sweet jalapeño spread may be my new favorite thing.

Happy hour:

Two fantastic date nights with this handsome guy.

We went to see The Edge of Tomorrow (so intense!) and met up with friends at Brooklyn Girl for dinner. They have an eclectic menu (salads, pasta, pizza, chicken, seafood, tapas, oysters) and sweet and spicy popcorn. We’ll be back soon 😉

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend <3

    Bolani is the best and their staff is always so friendly! You’ve got to try the pumpkin flatbread when you get the chance- by far the best! Also… if you could figure out how to recreate their garlic yogurt cheese I would die of happiness 😉

      i tried it! LOVED it. had to narrow down my choices though 🙂
      i will definitely try to replicate the garlic yogurt cheese. it is insane

    That bread looks so yummy! I love your turquoise tank too.

    Hey! Any tips for making date nights happen for a new mom? I have a 2 month old. When did you start and how often do you get a babysitter?

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 1:28 am

      hey girl! i think liv was 4 months old the first time we went on a date? it seems so long ago. for me, it was trusting the fact that she would be fine. i had a lot of anxiety and it was hard for me to leave her, but i realized that she needed a mom and dad who were in love and still made their relationship a priority. now we have a date night at least every couple of weeks.
      congratulations to you and your family!

    cute date night outfit 🙂

  5. Yaara Leve on June 8, 2014 at 10:57 pm

    Cali is looking damn good on you girlfriend!! You are seriously looking so gorgeous. I love that suit and that top! Where from?? I know i”m annoying–I always ask you where you get your clothes. Those waves ain’t too shabby neither–:)

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 1:26 am

      oh, thank you! the suit is victoria’s secret and the top was from stitch fix 🙂

  6. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on June 8, 2014 at 11:11 pm

    Yay you kept that cute colorblock top from Stitchfix! It looks really cute on you.

    It looks like you had an amazing weekend. I’m so jealous you live by the beach!

    Did you get the Bolani from Costco? I am obsessed with that stuff! It is from the SF Bay area, where I am originally from, and didn’t know they were expanding their market to SoCal! That is super exciting to see! I always stock up at the farmer’s markets or Costco when I visit my fam. I hope it comes to my neck of the woods soon :).

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 1:25 am

      yep from costco! it is seriously amazing

  8. Anu on June 9, 2014 at 12:13 am

    I love love Bolani! I literally have it every week. Try the lentil spread too – delish mixed in with scrambled eggs!

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 1:25 am

      ohhhhh i will definitely try that!!

  9. Laura B @ FitMamaLove on June 9, 2014 at 12:31 am

    Those Bolani things are so good! I love that Costco has such good berries–they have the best prices on them!

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 1:25 am

      i was so excited. the containers are about twice as big as the ones at trader joe’s for the same price

  10. Julie on June 9, 2014 at 2:29 am

    My cousin is freaked out by the sand but loves the beach so I have to give her a piggy back ride every time!

  11. Missy on June 9, 2014 at 5:10 am

    The picture of the trees is beautiful. Had to laugh at the dumbbells in the corner. 😉

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 10:04 am

      i was wondering if anyone would see those 🙂 it was our background for summer shape up pics

  12. Runner Girl Eats on June 9, 2014 at 6:36 am

    Beautiful weekend! Love your blue top 🙂

  13. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork on June 9, 2014 at 7:04 am

    That flatbread looks delicious! You’re such a sweet family!

  14. Carrie Wright on June 9, 2014 at 7:09 am

    Love that top from Stitch Fix. It looks awesome with the white jeans.

  15. Livi on June 9, 2014 at 7:18 am

    Stunning scenery!

    So jealous of your date nights! My husband had to work all weekend 🙁 We’ll make up for it next week though!!

  20. Elizabeth {Positively Healthy} on June 9, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    I love a good beach day!! So much fun!! 🙂

  21. Kara H. on June 9, 2014 at 1:29 pm

    OMG, those BERRIES! So very jealous. I just bought local strawberries here and they STILL go bad so fast. Can’t get enough strawberries in my life. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 9, 2014 at 7:26 pm

      i’m berry crazy 🙂

  22. Vivian on June 12, 2014 at 1:15 am

    Oh, I’ve missed bolani and the dips! I used to get some every week at the farmers’ market when I live up in Davis; any chance I can get my hands on any here in Tucson?

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2014 at 2:21 am

      have you checked costco??

      • Vivian on June 12, 2014 at 10:22 am

        I hadn’t seen them there the last time I went, but I wasn’t looking because I hadn’t thought of them in a few years until I saw this post. Now I know what I’ll be doing later today… 🙂
