Weekend Recap + Food & Fitness #39

Hey y’all! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Our was pretty low-key, which was nice.

Friday, I was excited to find some great things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, including these beautiful heels!

NAS Shoes

I was also able to get my blog Facebook page up and running! Head on over and check it out!

Cody and I decided to stay home Friday night. We enjoyed some How I Met Your Mother and time with Cooper.

Saturday we slept in until 8 and the rest of the day was really chill. I did my usual meal planning and grocery list, we watched a little Netflix, took Cooper on a morning walk, and we swam in the pool in the afternoon.

Saturday night we had a double date with our friends Chris and Katie! First they came by to meet our little guy 🙂

We went out to dinner at the restaurant 5Church. It is an old converted church with the book “War and Peace” painted on the ceiling. They also display local art, my favorite being the one that showed Rainbow Row throughout history.

The food and drinks definitely did not disappoint! I got their wild berry mojito to drink and it was the best mojito I’ve ever had. We all shared a charcuterie board for an appetizer and the waitress brought a chickpea salad for the table to try.

For dinner, I ordered their prime bistro steak, which had a ranchero flavor to it, and included the creamiest mashed potatoes as a side while Cody ordered the duck. Neither of us had tried duck before and it was delicious; so were the veggies. Katie let us try her cobia dish and it was the best fish I’ve ever had.

For dessert, we decided to head over to Carmella’s where Cody and I shared their Oreo mousse. I love their desserts! We also tried a bite of Chris’s coconut cake and that was yummy too.

We didn’t want to end the night there, so we headed over to Cypress for another drink. I ordered their Lady in Pink, which had my signature fruitiness but wasn’t overly sweet.

Today Cody and I headed to church and were able to sit with some friends that I teach with and hadn’t been able to see at all this summer. It was a great message using the movie McFarland, USA, and it talked about investing in where you are now in life and embracing those moments.

The rest of the day was a typical Sunday with grocery shopping, lunch, workouts, planning out the week, and cleaning. And tonight we are planning on hanging with Cooper 🙂

Speaking of Cooper, here is your weekly dose of him. This was at the end of his walk Friday night.
