MIMM 39 with Registry Fun, Furry Friend, and More!

by Healthy Diva on March 4, 2013


What a fun and busy weekend we had over here! The weather was snowy and cold, I seriously can’t wait for spring! Bundling up with a bump has been getting a little hard lately, I can’t wait to just wear tanks and maxi dresses!

I had lots of marvelous things going on this weekend, so let me share them with you guys….



Baby registry at Babies R Us was done on Friday night, it was so much fun! We put lots of good items on our list and Mike was having a blast! My heart melted to see how excited he is for Baby G! We both really are, but just seeing him on cloud nine makes me love him so much more!

I lounged around in gliders, haha! No, was just seeing how comfy they were! We are definitely going to need one but didn’t see any we liked there. I did register for one at Target though!

IMG 6939

We had a fun night doing that, it pretty much did take up our Friday night too, we were there for a long time!

Oh and got to love free samples when you register too, I will be needing to stock up on these.

Saturday I went to go visit my sister Mindy and see her new addition, Jake the cat! He is so cute and he is big for only being almost 1!

IMG 6962

The pugs are getting along with him well too, so that is good!

IMG 6965

IMG 6963

We went shopping after to get my sister Gina a baby gift since her baby shower is March 16th! I am excited for her shower, she is due June 1st in case you guys forgot!

Saturday afternoon included a Tracy Anderson Pregnancy Project Month 6, was a good workout!! LOVING month 6!

Post workout smoothie was a berry chocolate protein smoothie….

IMG 6960

Love this vega powder!

IMG 6961

Saturday night involved Target, lots of house supplies to get there like toilet paper, paper towels, and we needed some organizational stuff for the guest room. The nursery is getting painted this Wednesday so we moved the guest room out of there into another room! I am excited for it to be painted and we need to order our furniture for the nursery the next couple weeks too.

Oh and how cute os this book we picked up at target too? It was a must for the Baby G book collection!

IMG 6973

Saturday night we all decided to do chinese delivery at home, perfect choice!

Chicken lettuce wraps and seaweed salad for me…

IMG 0613

Anthony got some spicy chicken….

IMG 0614

Mike got a stir fry with chicken….

IMG 0615

I love chinese, especially delivery on a cold and snowy night!

Sunday was my good friends Mellory’s Baby Shower! Was such a beautiful day and it was held at her parents house! She had her bridal shower there too, her mom does a great job!

IMG 6985

IMG 6986

IMG 6987

IMG 6988

How cute are the John Deere cupcake toppers? Haha!

IMG 6989

IMG 6990

IMG 6991

IMG 6992

IMG 6993

IMG 6995

IMG 6996

There was regular food too, like sandwiches and such! I forgot to take pics of those, just took pics of the good stuff! Haha!

Mellory is the one next to me! I should have taken a bump pic with her, we forgot!

IMG 6998

She got SO much cute stuff and awesome gifts! Was a fun day!

IMG 7004

Fun games were played too!

IMG 7001

Love you Mellory and Dave! Can’t wait to meet the little baby girl soon!

IMG 7002

Oh I love the weekends, but I do like a fresh new week too!

Hope everyone has a great start to the week today! Make it marvelous!

All of those pink treats look so good. I’m pretty sure if I were in attendance, i would’ve tried every single one!!

..and hearing about Mike at Toys R Us just makes me even happier for the two of you. You both are already such wonderful parents, I can’t even imagine how you can improve. <3

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! And oh, the glider chairs…I don’t even have a baby on the way, and I’d gladly take one of those things. They’re so comfortable! :)


5 Lisa March 4, 2013 at 7:26 am

Oh, looks like so much fun! Registering always seems like a blast.

14 Miss Polkadot March 4, 2013 at 8:16 am

Having so many baby showers happening around you lately must simply be awesome! I’m sure you’re super excited for Gina’s already and I’m curious to see what you got her once you’re showing it.

Just curious: Why did Mellory have John Deere cupcake toppers when she’s expecting a girl :D? Still such a fun topping for sure.

Happy Monday, Katie!


15 Rachel March 4, 2013 at 8:22 am

those pink pretzel cookies look so cute! I made ones like that for Christmas once :) only, of course, red and green haha

Baby shopping must be so fun! I had a blast when I was shopping for my friends shower lol

AH! I don’t even know what to comment on first! I’m DYING at the pug pictures. The first one looks like me when I wake up in the morning. I actually just posted that picture on the my bf’s fb wall and said “good morning sunshine” hahahaha. Also, where do you get vega powder? Been craving smoothies lately! And lastllyy: that baby shower is SO CUTE. Goodness, I’m such a sucker for all the color-themed treats.


37 Healthy Diva March 4, 2013 at 4:30 pm

Yes, my sisters pugs are funny little guys! I love them!!

I got it at my local natural food store, but whole foods sells it too! I love the chocolate, tropical tango, and vanilla one!!


38 Meg March 4, 2013 at 10:34 am

Oh, Katie! I am so ready for spring, too! It was bitterly cold here this weekend and I’m sure I said 100000000 times that I want it to be spring already!!!!!!!!!!

Love you babe xo

41 Farrah @ Fairy Healthy Life March 4, 2013 at 10:52 am

You are looking beautiful! I too can’t wait for maxi dresses and I’m not even pregnant. All of that food looks delicious and fun. I went to a baby shower too but it wasn’t as fun as the one you attended. I love the john deer cupcakes, so cute!

Happy MIMM Katie!! Hope your weekend was great! <3


45 Anna @ Your Healthy Place March 4, 2013 at 11:59 am

I love all of those treats for the baby shower – someone got creative with all the ways pink was worked into the desserts! And I actually think spending a Friday night at stores registering for gifts sounds super fun lol!

PS your sister’s new kitty is adorable!


46 Allison March 4, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Okay, that baby shower looks phenomenal. Totally agree with you that Chinese delivery on a cold night is the best!


47 Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut March 4, 2013 at 12:22 pm

Thanks for the fun link-up! Happy you’re enjoying your 6th month! :)


48 Missy March 4, 2013 at 12:38 pm

You know what is MIMM?
Seeing those kicks for Baby G in your last post!
I flipped out — they are THE awesome.

Too cute!!


49 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish March 4, 2013 at 12:47 pm

What an incredible weekend!! I love that you and Mike spent Friday night at Babies R Us! I seriously would have fun doing that…and I’m not pregnant or married! Lol. Maybe I need to become a full-time baby nursery planner? ;)

Mellory’s baby shower looks amazing!! How cute are all the pink eats and treats? LOVE the pretzels and cupcakes! When is YOUR baby shower, love???

Happy Monday!! Love you!! xoxoxo


50 Healthy Diva March 4, 2013 at 4:27 pm

60 Ellie@Fit for the Soul March 4, 2013 at 2:07 pm

What a nice baby shower, and omgness I guess those desserts MUST be good! As I looked through them and wondered, “why do they look so delish?!I wanna try~” Selah started dancing in there, hahaha. And I looooooove those gliders, Katie~aren’t they so much fun and so relaxing? Ps: There’s nothing as heart warming and as cool as seeing a man be so excited and gushy over a baby/child. :D


61 Healthy Diva March 4, 2013 at 4:24 pm

Haha! Yes! Notice how I forgot to take pics of the real food, lol.

I hope you are feeling well beautiful mommy! Yes, baby g moves so much too! So exciting! So happy for us!

Dang, love all of the treats at the shower, super cute too!


63 Lauren March 4, 2013 at 4:20 pm

WHAT is the dessert with the crumb crust?! It looks SO good! I don’t have a bump but I can’t wait to wear maxi dresses either! It takes about 10 seconds to get dressed every day haha!


64 Healthy Diva March 4, 2013 at 4:23 pm

It was a graham cracker strawberry pie thing!

LOVE them too! Can’t wait for maxi dress time!


65 Courtney March 4, 2013 at 4:55 pm

68 Molly@This Life Is Sparkling March 4, 2013 at 9:15 pm

Your weekend sounded so fun! I love your rain boots by the way :) Also, I am SO ready for spring. Indiana’s weather has been pretty similar to Pennsylvania’s, and it has felt like the longest winter ever! I am ready for some sunshine :) Happy Monday!


69 Brittany @ Delights and Delectables March 4, 2013 at 9:34 pm

Thanks girl! I hope you had a good one too!!

Happy week to you!


75 Devon @ Health in Equilibrium March 4, 2013 at 11:00 pm

I love that smoothie mix too!! It’s great mixed into a bowl of melted frozen raspberries. It soaks up the liquid and makes it like a chocolate raspberry pudding! And I adore all of those pink treats! I especially want one [hundred] of those pretzel buttons!!


76 Healthy Diva March 5, 2013 at 7:29 am

Oh the pretzel buttons are SO good! I made those for valentine’s day once, yum! When I saw them at shower I had to resist, would of ate so many, lol!


77 Victoria @ Reluctantly Skinny March 4, 2013 at 11:48 pm

82 Christina @ The Beautiful Balance March 6, 2013 at 1:25 am

Vega protein is SO good! Why are smoothies so much tastier when eaten out of a bowl :P


83 Healthy Diva March 6, 2013 at 7:40 am

I agree, love eating from bowl! Rarely from a cup for me ;)
