Brian and I had to head back home to Indianapolis.  While we really do miss the warmth and the sunshine, it certainly does feel good to be back home and I am glad that I had the chance to get organized for the upcoming week.

Here is a little peak at what Brian and I did this weekend!

Brian helped me film a video for the blog.  I still need to edit it, but I should have it up this week!

After eating a lunch of romaine with hummus (because our fridge was literally bare!)…


Brian and I hit up the grocery store to get stocked for the week.  It sure feels great to have a fully stocked fridge!

We then enjoyed a delicious salad for dinner…more details on this later :)

We had a great time at a baby shower for a friend of ours from dental school.

Everything was so cute!

After the baby shower, Brian and I headed to the movie theater to meet my sister and her boyfriend to see Divergent.


While there were a couple of things different from the book…I still enjoyed the movie.  Now, we have to read the second book!


This morning, I woke up wanting to work out, but I did not want to run in the cold…so I pulled out my old Insanity DVD and did the Pure Cardio workout.  I forgot how COMPLETELY sweaty those workouts make me!

After my workout, it was time to prep food for the week.  I cut up all my veggies, made a frittata, and packed all my lunches some of which are these delicious looking collard wraps.

I can’t wait for lunch this week!

After doing some other less fun things around the house (laundry…), practicing Bodypump and CXWORX it was eventually time for dinner.  I was in a creative mood and attempted baking shrimp for the first time.  Yum!  It was so good.  We enjoyed roasted veggies and a side salad with the shrimp.

And THAT my friends is our weekend in a nutshell.

I hope your weekend was great too!  Anyone else see the new Divergent movie?

  1. Welcome home, Tara! Glad you had such a wonderful time in Florida though. Your collard wrap sound delicious. I always forgot how simple & fantastic they are for lunch. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Looking forward to one step closer to Spring! Every day we get further into March I know that warmer temps and sun HAVE to be closer so I am looking forward to making progress towards flowers and sun!

  3. We have the same camera! Do you like shooting video’s with it? I like it okay, but sometimes I think my iPhone is better! I might just not have it on the right settings, though. I’ve been too lazy to look through the manual.. :)

  4. Looks like a great weekend (and trip!) I need to try collard greens… you just made them look so delicious. I am really looking forward to my friends coming in from Chicago this weekend :)

  7. OMG I want to see the divergent movie so bad!! I BLEW through all 3 books (I read the 3rd one in one day). The ending made me sad though :( :( :(

      It is SO good!! I just started the second one…I wanted the suspense during the movie of not knowing what happens next :) HA!
