Weekend (Plus) Recap

It’s always bitter sweet leaving Arizona.  It’s so hard leaving my family behind every time because we are so close.  However, I am anxious to get home to Chris and our life in Georgia.  Emmalyne and I had a fantastic week here in the Grand Canyon state and are counting down the days until we come back.  I will leave you with some photos from the week.



Mom's Night Out

Babbos Italian Eatery

This week was focusing on family for me.  My aunt, cousin, and cousin’s three children were in town from Minnesota.  I got to see my dad which after last week made a world of difference for me.  One of the nights my brother-in-law offered to watch all SEVEN children so my cousin, sister, mom, aunt, and I could go to dinner.  We went to Babbos Italian Eatery which is one of my favorites in Phoenix.


Me and Banana Buzzbomb

True Food Kitchen Steak Tacos

I also got to meet Heidi of Banana Buzzbomb!  Heidi and her husband just moved out to Phoenix a month ago so I was excited to introduce them to another one of my favorite restaurants.  We hit up True Food Kitchen at the Biltmore for lunch.  I got their steak tacos which were as delicious as always.  I love when blog friends turn into real friends!  Heidi is just as she portrays herself on her blog and I am already looking forward to getting together again the next time I am in town :)


  6 Mile Run

I also managed to squeeze in some good workouts.  My mom’s gym is always really good about getting me a guest pass when I am town and I am grateful for the opportunity to sweat it out while on vacation.  The 6 mile run was done consecutively … the machine had a 25 minute cut-off limit and there were empty treadmills so I kept going.  I also knocked out some workouts for Best Body Bootcamp Phase 3.  LOVE.

AND in case you missed what’s been happening here at Food, Fitness, and Family over the weekend:


NEXT STOP, SAVANNAH!  What did you do this weekend?  Do you have to fly to visit family?

  2. Thats great your moms gym is so willing to give you a pass. The gym in my hometown will give me a 24 hour pass and only once a year! So I have to stick to outside runs and citcuit workouts when i visit home. Although at least my mom can watch the kids so i dont have to push the double stroller!

  3. I can’t believe the treadmills have a 25 min cut off time!! At least make it 30…or get more treadmills lol. At least you got a 6 in, that’s amazing!! Looks like you had a fun time. I’ve never been to AZ before, but I wanna go!
