Good morning! Hopefully by the time this post goes up, I will have already gotten my butt kicked by Eliza at the Watertown GymIt/EBF studio. As part of the Box FIIT certification I’m working on, I’m trying to get as much class experience as I can with other instructors to help better prepare me for when it’s time to start teaching my own classes- eek!!
This past weekend was another good one- lots of family time with both families which is always a nice treat! However, I am looking forward to this weekend since we FINALLY have a weekend with virtually no plans, which hasn’t happened in forever. I have so many general life things that I want to catch up on, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a bunch done!
After work on Friday I went to the Paper Source in Lynnfield to finalize our wedding invitations. I started them online which helped because I went into the store knowing exactly what I wanted and how it looked, but I was also able to work with a super helpful lady who helped me add more text lines and change the layout a bit. They are super simple, but classy- I love them and can’t wait until they come in! Oh, and the best part? All wedding invitations and related things were 20% off, which really helped keep them within my budget.
Once that was done, I picked up a few things at Whole Foods: pizza ingredients for dinner and quiche ingredients for Saturday brunch with my family. I made this quiche which was a big hit.
The pizza I made for RM and me was also fantastic- the dough from Whole Foods is so good!
Saturday started off with a sweaty kickboxing class. I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t worked out in 2 days or if it was because I hadn’t slept well the night before but the class kicked my butt!!
After class we showered up and headed into the city to go to my sister’s apartment for part 1 of our Easter celebrations. So much food, so much wedding talk, so many laughs! I also brought out my biggest of hair for the occasion 😉
Oh! And my mom washed her vail and brought it down to see if I wanted to use it for our wedding. I think it will be so special having my “something old” (and something borrowed) as her veil. I just need to find a nice comb to attach it to.
(and yes, I am a giant next to her!}
We stopped at Branch Line for a few drinks on our way home. As good as the drinks are, we REALLY need to get back there for dinner because everything looked and smelled amazing!
Sunday morning I kicked off the day with a quickie 20 minute bodyweight tabata workout (I’ll share it with you on Wednesday!) and then went to church. I haven’t been to church since we moved, so I figured Easter Sunday was as good a day as any to start. I hope to get back into a more regular church-going schedule.
When church was over I went food shopping and got wine and flowers for the Easter dinner at RM’s mother’s house. I didn’t get any photos of the food, but it was quite a feast: homemade lasagna (homemade noodles and everything!), grilled lamb, salad, brussels sprouts, potatoes, peppers and so many desserts. My future SIL’s parents came and when her mom walked in with a bunny cake it made me so happy because my mom always made me a bunny cake for my birthday/Easter!
As much as I didn’t want to food prep when we got home, I knew it would be better if I just got it over with!
And that about does it- the weekend came and went way too quickly, per usual! I hope you all had a great weekend and have a kick ass week!
Questions for you: How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? What did you do for Easter? Did you get any good workouts in? Do you go to church?

Looks like you guys had such a nice weekend! Both that quiche and pizza look amazing! I like Whole Foods’ dough, too. That’s so cool about wearing your mom’s veil! I got my hair pin off Etsy. So many good (cheap) wedding finds on there!
We had a great weekend- so much good food! That’s a good idea- I’ve been buying so much off of Etsy!
nice job on that pizza and quiche! glad you had a nice Easter time with both families. love that bunny cake!
The bunny cake tasted as good as it looked!! Hope you had a nice Easter!
1. That quiche looks unreal
2. I love your hair
3. I love your clothes
You need to make the quiche!! And, thank you for your compliments!! You’re too sweet 🙂
Hi Nick, I can’t believe you actually got THE “Bunny Cake” on Easter!! Dad told me it’s time for me to stop making you that cake for your b-day–I agreed, but I’m having a hard time with it! I’m so happy that you’ll be wearing my veil at your wedding–it means so much to me. Mom
it was pretty impressive! I think one bunny cake a year is probably enough, so no need to make it for my bday 🙂 but I love it!
Hats awesome you’re using your moms veil! I would have had one but it was so damn HOT I’m glad I didn’t!
It’s really special! I wasn’t sure I wanted one because I love the back of my dress so much, but I think for the ceremony it will be nice.
