Weekly Food and Fitness Plan

Hello everyone!! I took an unexpected long weekend away from the blog, hope you guys enjoyed the weekend as much as I did! The warm weather this weekend had me craving spring like crazy, hello sunshine!!

Brent’s travel schedule has been crazy lately so he was gone again last week. Thursday we had a special birthday dinner at my in-law’s house, the girls had a blast running around like crazies, ha!


Happy Birthday!

Friday we enjoyed having daddy home, playing chase around the house and being goofy…



We all were tired so we hit the sack pretty early Friday night. Saturday we had a big day! It was my niece’s 3rd birthday party so we had breakfast and then spent the day at the zoo!

Charlotte LOVED feeding the giraffe’s, the zoo gives you a bundle of lettuce for $3, that $3 was worth every penny for the joy it gave Charlotte! Funny story-Last time we fed the giraffe’s I had the bundle of lettuce in my hands getting and we were getting ready to feed them when a thief of a giraffe came up and ate the entire bundle right out of my arms! Needless to say we had to go and purchase more lettuce and try again…

IMG_2396This was my conversation with Charlotte on the way home from the zoo… “Mama, I’m tired” “Close your eyes baby” “But I want to sleep in my own bed” how cute is that? She wanted to nap in her own bed, but obviously you can tell by the picture above that the sleepiness eventually won and she passed out.

Sunday we were all pretty tired from our big day Saturday so we watched church on TV in our PJ’s, best invention ever! Then we spent the entire day outside, we setup some chairs on our driveway with our neighbors and let our girls play in the cul-de-sac, and after nap took Charlotte to the park. She could seriously swing for hours…

IMG_2372Then Sunday night was the Oscar’s (!!!!) Yay Leo, you will forever be my high school crush. Though I’m not going to lie, sometimes watching The Oscar’s makes me feel totally out of the loop when it comes to film.

Here is this week’s food and fitness plan



Did you watch the Oscar’s? Any surprises?

Tell me a highlight from your weekend!



A Super Simple but Yummy Dinner

I have this super simple but yet super delish recipe that every time I make it gets devoured. I also have shared with some friends and they love it too! I am kinda embarrassed to call it a recipe since it’s seriously so easy but I’ll share it anyway!!


One Pan Sausage and Veggie bake

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 zucchini sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 1 russet potato peeled and chopped
  • 3 large carrots peeled and chopped
  • bushel of Brussel sprouts sliced or chopped
  • 2 packages of your favorite chicken sausage sliced (we really like a spicy one like mango chipotle and a sweet one like apple and chicken)
  • 2 tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbs. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbs. salt
  • 1/2 tbs. pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Chop all veggies, place on baking sheet
  3. Coat veggies in olive oil and toss with seasoning
  4. Top veggies with sliced sausages and place in oven
  5. Bake for 45mins to 1 hr depending on how crispy you like your veggies and sausage
  6. Enjoy!

*Note* We like to put this recipe over the top of some cous cous or quinoa and serve with a side salad, glass of wine is optional but recommended 😉
