Sushi Monster Date


I hope all of you had a great weekend, and are ready to start fresh this week.

This week I am heading back to work at GPP! I worked two mornings last week and feel pretty good about going back. It felt good to get back in the groove of coaching. I missed it! I will be 6 weeks post partum THIS Friday! I am hoping to teach Body Pump again on Saturday! My doctor appointment isn’t until the 25th so I’m going to take it light and easy. I am excited to ease back into everything. I will be modifying my schedule a little bit and have chosen to drop a class to accommodate my family. They are always number 1! More on that in a different post.

Now, lets chat about the weekend!!

Roen celebrated 5 weeks of life on Friday! I can’t believe how fast time has gone. He is growing more everyday and sleeping longer and longer periods of time! Last night he had a 6 hour stretch!! I woke up and was worried for a little bit! He has been sleeping in his nursery the last week and I really think it has benefited the both of us!

                 {Oh, heeeeey, I’m five weeks old!}

Friday, while we were doing some shopping at Target, I found the Taylor Swift 1989 CD! It was on sale for $10! BONUS! I couldn’t pass it up, I have heard nothing but amazing things about it. I am positive I haven’t even bought a CD since 1999! I am so glad I snagged it. I have been listening to it all weekend and I LOVE it.

It was my first time taking ALL three kiddos shopping with me.. It actually went well, and I may of bribed them with a treat if they were good. Parenting 101 right here!

We had a little fun though playing in the Christmas section!

Saturday, Brent went duck hunting in the morning and when he got back that afternoon, I took a quick shower and headed out for a little girls day with Bee.

I got a few pedicure gift certificates from friends after having Roen and decided that it would be a fun date for Bee and I. 

My little side kick had a blast! I’m glad I could take her out and make her feel special. She has loved being a big sister but I think she really has missed having my full attention at all times. She had a smile on her face the whole time!

                                {Happy Girl!}


Saturday night, we got a sitter for T & B and headed out on our first DATE since I had Roen. I wanted sushi SO bad! It had been about 9 months since I last had real sushi! We went to Sushi Monster in Farmington. It is about a 15 minute drive from our house, I had been there a couple of times with a friend but it was Brents first time.

We started off with soup and edamame. We both ate those little green addictive things in two minutes flat!

I’m really good at focusing my camera these days!….

Brent and I are both fast eaters, we talked about how our kids have kinda made us FAST eaters. You have to eat while you have the time, gone are the days of enjoying food and now we scarf down our food while it is still warm, because you never know who is going to ask for something else or what mess we are going to have to clean up!

Even on this date we had Roen, so we felt a little rushed because when your nursing you have X amount of time between feedings. Luckily, he slept the whole time so we could actually enjoy our food.

I ordered the Fuji roll and Sunrise roll. Both had salmon, which is my favorite. Brent got 3 other rolls and we chatted and shared our sushi. That is my favorite thing about sushi restaurants, you always get to try each others rolls of choice.

                                             {GET IN MAH BELLY!}

We had a great time and the food and service was great! We arrived at the restaurant early.. like 5 pm so we didn’t have to wait for a seat. While we were eating we decided eating early was the smart thing to do because the restaurant filled up pretty quick!

We left and headed to Lulu lemon which was right across from the restaurant. How could I not go in?! Ha!

I haven’t purchased anything from lulu since I got pregnant so I was excited to look around. I found a jacket that I have been lusting after for a year. I almost bought it 3x before when it came out last year but always decided against it because I feel a little guilty spend $100+ on a jacket.. Brent told me to get it and I am so happy I did! This new version of the studio jacket is reversible too!

I love every minute I get to spend with Brent. With three kids it has been hard to get out and find time with each other. I am lucky to have such a great husband, who is supportive, helpful and understanding. He even missed watching the Utah game to go out with me that night. Which is huge if you know him. We did record it to watch later that night but the station it was on is dumb and DVR didn’t end up recording the beginning of the game. Luckily, we got home just in time to watch the Utes win in double over time!!


Question of the Day

Are you a fast eater?

Would you rather have a manicure or a pedicure?
