Annabelle's Nursery

Howdy Friends,

Happy Monday! Guess what? We're still pregnant over here. I was really hoping the little lady would make her arrival this weekend, but no go. I'm thinking I should just settle in for quite a long wait at this point.

We tried to stay busy this weekend to make the time go by a little bit faster. We had some friends come in and visit on Saturday. Mike, Ashley, and their son AD drove down from Fort Worth to catch up. We went for ice cream at Amy's, checked out the UT Football Stadium, and grabbed dinner and one of E and I's favorite spots. It was an absolute blast to get to catch up with them!

On Sunday, I woke up early to hit the grocery store and get in a quick workout before heading to brunch with the girls. We went to a cute little spot in North Austin called Epicerie. It looked like a cute little French bakery. We had a great time chatting and then stopped for a photo op since this is the last time we will all be together before Annabelle arrives and the 2nd to last time before baby Strub arrives!


Love those girls! After brunch, Whitney, Christy, and I headed back to Christy's place to spend a little time in her pool. It feels so nice to be in the water! It takes all the pressure off my lower back, and I feel like a normal person for a little while.

I told you last week, that Annabelle's room is finally all done!! I am absolutely in love with how it turned out and I can't wait to show it to baby girl when she gets here. Thank you again to Eric for putting every single piece of furniture together, my in-laws for gifting Annabelle some of her furniture, Kelli for making her name above the crib, the "Annabelle" picture frame, and beautiful star mobile hanging from the ceiling, and Kelley for making the decorations above her changing table. We are going to add her baby pictures on either side of the "A" above the changing table and then the room will be 100% finished.




And there you have it! Pink, pink, and more pink! But if you know me, you know I wouldn't have it any other way. E has been such a trooper about the pink overload! :)

Last, but not least, I need to announce the winner of our Pure Via Summer Fit Kit Giveaway. Drum roll please......... The winner is Alison S! Thank you to everyone who entered!

How was your weekend?

Are you a brunch fan?

In health,

Friday Funday Workout

Happy Friday Everyone!


I hope you are all having a great Friday so far. My morning started bright and early for no reason at all. :) Little Miss woke me up kicking at 5 AM, and I couldn't go back to sleep. I read up on some baby articles, caught up on the news, and then got ready for my 8:15 AM meeting at the studio. After my meeting, it was time to get my sweat on. I stuck with the cardio and strength interval theme that I shared yesterday. Today, I used the TRX, kettlebell, and treadmill, but you could definitely sub your favorite cardio for the time on the treadmill. Here is what the workout looked like.

The TRX is a great tool for prenatal workouts because you have complete control over your level of resistance by how you position your body. It is also a great way to strengthen your core without lying on your back. As always, be sure to check with your physician before doing this or any workout while pregnant.

After my sweat session, I headed to meet my friend, Whitney, for lunch at a cool salad joint called Leaf. You can build your own salad with all the healthy and delicious toppings of your choosing. The two glowing white orbs are boiled eggs.

This morning, I noticed that I had some pretty ripe bananas hanging out in the fruit stand so I figured I better use them. I have been wanting to try out a Paleo banana bread recipe I found!

I actually had all of the ingredients on hand minus carob chips so I ran into Whole Foods and grabbed some on my way to lunch. The banana bread is currently in the oven and smells delicious! If it turns out yummy, I will be sure to share the recipe with you.

You only have three more days to enter my Pure Via Fit Kit Summer Giveaway if you haven't already!  

I hope you have a great rest of your Friday!!

What do you like to make with your over ripe  bananas?
