MIMM 38 with Marvelous Weekend Highlights!

by Healthy Diva on February 25, 2013


Weekend gone….womp, womp, womp!

Oh but a great weekend is all that matters and that is what we had over here! Hoping all of you did too! I am also hoping all of you share your marvelous weekend with me MIMM style…..

My weekend was marvelous because….

We found the sun light at Ikea! I am so excited to see how it is going to look in the nursery! Hoping it is not too complicated to put up, we will see. The nursery will be coming along soon, I am trying to get it all done soon, but I also know Baby G will be sleeping bedside with me in the guest room for the first 3 or 4 months in his bassinet. No rush, but I do want to get the painting done the next 2 weeks and get the furniture ordered too.

Yay, I’m glad you found the sunlight and I’m hoping you’ll show more pictures of your nursery once it’s done :).
Oooh, did you get “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” for Baby G’s library yet? It’s such a good one.
Old music and lots of quality time with the family – good for you to teach Anthony about good music ;) – sound like the perfect weekend. Have a great Monday, Katie!


2 Aimée @Brighter, Balanced Future February 25, 2013 at 5:43 am

Woah I didn’t know you had Gloria Jeans in America! I’ve worked there for the past 4 years!

Yum–all that salmon looks delicious! Now I’m craving some–I’ll have to add that to the menu sometime this week. :) Have a great day!


5 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More February 25, 2013 at 6:26 am

Your son does NOT look thrilled by that salmon…haha ;)

I can’t wait to see that nursery when the time comes – that light is super cute!

7 Lisa February 25, 2013 at 6:34 am

I can’t wait to see more of the nursery:)


8 Allison February 25, 2013 at 6:59 am

Sounds great! I love that you showed your son that music. Some of the music out today is just ridiculous.

18 Caitlin February 25, 2013 at 8:37 am

What a fabulous weekend, girl! I love how all of your weekends are filled with family time with your men and sisters and whatnot…always fun to see what you guys get up to :) I’m impressed that Anthony eats salmon already, too….I wouldn’t have touched that at his age haha, but I was also the pickiest eater known to man until I was 19 or so ;) Where is that restaurant btw?? It looks fabulous, and I wanted that martini haha!


19 katie February 25, 2013 at 2:30 pm

Yes he does! He loves it! I know pic looks like he is afraid of it, lol! He just is at the age where he hates pics so he wasn’t loving I took one, haha!

The place is called Table in Mcmurray, its great!


20 Caitlin February 25, 2013 at 3:17 pm

It looks it! Have to keep in mind to try when Joe comes home :)


21 Sam @ Better With Sprinkles February 25, 2013 at 8:51 am

Adore that light from IKEA, that is so cute!

I need to find one of those martinis. Jesus, that sounds delicious.


22 Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness February 25, 2013 at 8:51 am

Sounds like a perfect family packed weekend! Are those new scents of Bath and Body Works candles? I might have to make a trip! I’m kind of obsessed with them :) Happy Monday!


23 katie February 25, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Yes, they are new ones! They smell amazing too!


24 Kallie February 25, 2013 at 9:00 am

I literally bought the exact same candles at Bath and Body Works about two weeks ago! Love them both!


25 Healthy Diva February 25, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Great taste you have! :)


26 Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut February 25, 2013 at 9:11 am

I love your new MIMM button! I will be back later with a post! <3

So excited for you – That nursery is gonna look great!


28 Farrah @ Fairy Healthy Life February 25, 2013 at 9:16 am

Sounds like a great weekend! You always find the cutest products, that nail polish just screams summer!


29 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl February 25, 2013 at 9:25 am

LOVE your blazer! I am really enjoying that trend this year. Yours is extra cute :)

I really like Smart Fries, but have never heard of the cheddar flavor. I SO want to try those ASAP!

Happy Monday! :)


30 StaceyA February 25, 2013 at 9:32 am

We had salmon last night too! SO good, and it makes you feel so healthy! Sounds like you had a busy weekend-hope you find time to relax today :)


31 Healthy Diva February 25, 2013 at 4:53 pm

YES! I seriously could eat salmon daily!

I am hoping to relax tonight and be in bed early! Hope your week is off to a great start!


32 Ashley @ Life and Fitness February 25, 2013 at 9:32 am

I love Ikea. I bought all my furniture there when I redid my room about 10 years ago. Everything has lasted and had good quality. It is so easy to get lost in that store buying a million things you don’t need because all the rooms look arranged perfectly haha.


33 Angela @ Health's Angel February 25, 2013 at 9:55 am

Mmmm I could eat salmon every single day! So good.


34 Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear February 25, 2013 at 10:04 am

sounds like a great weekend! Love the sun light :D


35 Dorsa @ Running Thoughts February 25, 2013 at 10:11 am

I would suggest getting the nursery done way in advance of your little guy being born.. You won’t really have time to set it up after he is born, and who knows you might want to move him into his crib sooner than 3-4 months… We are doing it in the next few weeks..


36 Alex @ therunwithin February 25, 2013 at 10:22 am

smart fries have to be one of the best snacks! I love that light, I think it will be adorable in your baby’s room.


37 Sami February 25, 2013 at 10:28 am

YAY! you found the light for the nursery! it’s adorable. I can’t wait to see what it looks like installed!



38 Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome February 25, 2013 at 10:42 am

I was craving a shopping weekend so bad and finally had somewhat of one. We went to the outlets and Nordstrom Rack but I’m still itching to go to the mall. I can’t wait to see Baby G’s nursery! I’m sure it’s going to Rock!


39 Amanda @ Running with Spoons February 25, 2013 at 11:08 am

I love those lights from Ikea, and I’m so sad that they weren’t around when I was little :( That picture of Anthony eating the salmon seriously makes me laugh because it kind of looks like the look that I give my food if I’m iffy about it… and salmon is definitely one of the things that I’m iffy about.

Happy Monday, love!


40 Ali @ WHOLEistically Fit February 25, 2013 at 11:16 am

That pork shank is calling my name! Seriously. ;) <3 the baby bump – it's coming along. So exciting! :D


41 katie February 25, 2013 at 2:31 pm

Yes it is! I swear it grows every day now! :)


42 Kaitlin @4loveofcarrots February 25, 2013 at 11:30 am

I am jealous of your salmon 2 nights in a row! That sun is adorable, can’t wait to see your baby’s room come together!


43 Lift, Sleep, Eat February 25, 2013 at 12:01 pm

Looks like you had a great weekend – all that salmon looks delicious.
Loving the look of those Nails Inc Ice Cream colours too – so cute!


44 Allison @ Life's a Bowl February 25, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Date nights are always marvelous! And that chocolate pretzel martini sounds heavenly – I need to find something similar to it around here…

P.S. I love the Eric Carle books, they’re childhood classics!


45 Liz (formerly VeggieGirl) February 25, 2013 at 12:33 pm

Aww, can’t wait to see all the baby furnishings for the nursery! And I’m glad you had a nice weekend.

Happy marvelous Monday! xoxo


46 Anna @ Your Healthy Place February 25, 2013 at 1:27 pm

I’ll need to remember to update my MIMM button with this new one before next week – I love it! Looks like a super fun weekend love :)


47 Healthy Diva February 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm

Yes! Hope you had a great weekend love! <3


48 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish February 25, 2013 at 2:12 pm

Happy Monday, love!! Your date night dinner with that marvelous husband of yours looks amazing! Salmon salads are my favorite, and it looks like the one you ordered was prepared perfectly. :) Oh, and that chocolate-covered pretzel cocktail? Want!

I can’t wait to see pics of BabyG’s nursery! Love the sun light you found at Ikea–so cute!

Love you! I’m going to try calling sometime this week–will text you first! xoxo <3


49 kim@hungryhealthygirl February 25, 2013 at 2:17 pm

Look like an awesome weekend!! I love that book. You’re so lucky that Anthony will eat salmon….I can’t get my kids to touch it. Have a great week, Katie!


50 Karey @ Nutty About Health February 25, 2013 at 3:18 pm

Glad you had a marvelous weekend! That sun light from IKEA is ADORABLE!! I’m sure Baby G will love it! Your salad dinner looked sooo good!! :)


51 cathy February 25, 2013 at 4:20 pm

I’ve had the chocolate pretzel drink before (not at Table) they are DELISH! :)


52 Erica Morais (Maddies Warrior Mom) February 25, 2013 at 4:31 pm

Thank you for the love on your blog today. =) I am so glad you did find the sun light at Ikea. It’s very adorable. Glad you had a great weekend. I’m off to get ready for our Hero’s birthday tomorrow. I have cupcakes to bake. =) Wish me luck.


53 Healthy Diva February 25, 2013 at 4:52 pm

No prob! Thank YOU again!!

Happy birthday!! YAY! Good luck making cupcakes, I am sure they will turn out well!!


54 Molly@This Life Is Sparkling February 25, 2013 at 5:48 pm

I got the same pink sangria candle! I had it last year and loved it so I got it again :)


55 Heather @fitncookies February 25, 2013 at 6:14 pm

I’m so happy you found the light for Baby G’s room! It is so cute and it will brighten up the room! Your weekend looked full of laughs, family, and hubby time, which sounds perfect to me! I hope you have a marvelous Monday, and thanks again for hosting! :)


56 Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli February 25, 2013 at 6:24 pm

Aww, sounds like a great weekend love! That chocolate covered pretzel martini sounds INSANE! I love martinis! Well…as long as they’re the froo-froo kind! ;) I had one of the BEST chocolate espresso martini’s when I vacationed in St. Louis a few months ago…I ordered a pumpkin spice one, but sadly it was not at all what I was expecting so luckily the bartender let me trade it out!

Never thought to put salmon and pears together…I may have to try that…with some goat cheese of course (can’t have a salmon salad without goat cheese!) Was the dressing they served yours with fruity?

Hope you’re having a MARVELOUS start to the week gorgeous!


57 Renee February 25, 2013 at 6:37 pm

Sounds like a Wonderful Weekend for sure! Loving the bump – has the little rock star been doing air guitar or drumming or not real active yet? When I was in Hawaii they used guava, plum and local honey on fish and seafood – YUM – have to experiment at home now – not to sweet though, so have to find that sweet/savory balance somehow. Happy Monday – Happy Week:)


58 Brittany @ Delights and Delectables February 25, 2013 at 7:43 pm

You are so dang beautiful!! :) Looks like an awesome weekend. I need to learn how to bake salmon. Can you teach me??


59 Healthy Diva February 25, 2013 at 9:17 pm

U are SO beautiful inside and out! Yes it’s really easy!! :)


60 natalie @ will jog for food February 25, 2013 at 8:55 pm

I love that sun light, so cute!


61 Debbie (Accidently Delish) February 25, 2013 at 9:51 pm

Ah you are so cute! I love watching you grow! haha.
I wish I wasn’t so lazy and took the time to make salmon more often (yes i know it doesn’t take that much!) that meal out looks amazing.

can’t wait for baby G to get here!
