Party All The Weekend

How about that time we had 3 massive parties in 1 weekend?  Oh yeah that was last weekend.  Buckle up friends, because it's time for a most epic weekend recap.  So epic in fact that I couldn't even post it until Monday night, because I needed Monday to actually work in my real job :)

I started my Friday with a 6 mile run.  I've been keeping an 8-10 mile base consistently with weekly long treadmill runs.  It's just to darn hot here.  I had been quite proud of my typical negative treadmill split and around 9:20 average pace.  Need some running humble pie?  Run outside.  I struggled mentally and physically, but I did finish and I kept telling myself, "I am getting stronger."
Friday night was a BIG night for Kyle and I as we celebrated the two year anniversary of our gym, Evolution Fitness Orlando.  We wanted to thank our clients for their loyalty and faith in Kyle's training with a happy hour event. I don't know if any of you own your own business, but it's hard work.  You are never off and your success is up to you.  I'm so proud of how hard Kyle works to make Evo a success.  He has a passion for fitness, but also for his clients and I think that combination PLUS always being willing to work harder has been a key to his success.  I'm so proud of him!
Most everything was a huge success...except our cake....
Yup, "fittnes".  This was my first Publix cake and I am NOT impressed. I've contacted Publix customer support and am told they will "get back with me".  That was Saturday.

Speaking of Saturday, we had another event Saturday as Kyle and I headed to Hyde Park in Tampa to celebrate our friend Denny's 30th birthday.  We started with cocktails at a boutique hotel called The Epicurean and then had dinner at Ciccio's/Water.
What a great restaurant.  The menu was so fresh with more healthy options than I've ever seen.  They had sushi, bowls, salads, stir fry, and everything was packed with veggies.  There was even a Paleo menu.  I opted for a natural chicken and broccolini stir fry on top of spaghetti squash.  I wish I lived closer, because this is a restaurant I would frequent..A LOT.
Sunday night was the final party of the weekend as we celebrated my cousin's baby shower.
Miss Karoleena Marie will arrive this fall and Taina's friends threw a Coco Chanel themed party.  The food was great and it was wonderful to spend the afternoon with family and friends.  For one of the games they poured different liquors in the diapers and we had to guess which was which.  I think I got 3 out of 6, but the Mamma To Be got ALL 6 RIGHT!
And how amazing does Taina look?  That dress is a size 2!!! That she wore to a baby shower!  That's some praise for a Fit Pregnancy right there.
Sometimes weekend's are so amazing that you wish you could spread all the fun events out, so you can savor them more.  There's really nothing better than time with good friends and family.  That's what's important and this weekend it was perfect timing to be surrounded by them.
Speaking of great friends...I am looking forward to seeing my RunDisney friends this weekend in California!  It's RunDisney season time!

What did you do this weekend?
How would you handle that epic cake fail?

Love and baby girls,
Carissa & Kyle
