Girls Weekend Plus a Zumba Video

Girls Weekend Plus a Zumba Video

Hey there!  Thanks for everyone’s engagement last week for my blogiversary.  I love reading all of your comments!  Don’t forget there is still time to enter my three giveaways: $25 Gift Card to Williams Sonoma, Jaybird Wireless Headphones and $50 to Athleta!

So, how was your weekend?  Hope it was amazing!  Unfortunately the Hubs was working in Mexico this weekend so I was on my own.  I did what any girl would do, I planned a girls weekend. . . with my mom!  It was honestly one of the most relaxing weekends I’ve had in awhile.

The weather was so perfect on Saturday so we hit the beach for a healthy lunch, some swimming and of course lounging in beach chairs!

One of my favorite things about visiting my parents is the proximity to really fresh seafood.  For dinner, we grilled up some chile-rubbed lemon sole and halibut with pineapple, mango and strawberry salsa, plus spicy sweet potatoes.  Everything was unbelievably delicious and even more so because we got to dine al fresco!

Of course no summer dinner is complete without a delicious cocktail.  This week we tried out Skinnygirl Sweet n’ Tart Grapefruit Margarita.  It was the perfect pairing for our deliciously spicy fish meal.

After dinner we drove back down to the beach to catch this gorgeous sunset!

Sunday we went for a bike ride around the neighborhood.  I love getting secret exercises (aka exercise disguised as fun!).

    You and your mom are so cute! That dinner looks delicious. Halibut is my hubby’s favorite fish..I may have to give that a try! How were the margs? I haven’t seen that flavor of Skinnygirl before!

      Aw thanks! The margs were really good! My favorite are the Skinnygirl Peach Margaritas but these are a close second. They just came out this season so they are relatively new.

    There is nothing like a girls weekend! I am hoping to plan one of those with my mom soon.

    Love the Zumba video!

    I went on a bachelorette party and it was amazing. Somehow I came back yesterday and ran my 13 mile training run…I’m dragging a lot today, but it was totally worth it. Looks like you had a great weekend! I’m still awaiting your career news ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve made some changes myself in the past week!

    • FitBritt
      July 29, 2013

      Oh no way! I can’t wait to hear about your career moves! ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope everything works out for the best for you. I can’t believe you went on a 13 mile run after a bachelorette party. I would eat pizza and watch movies!

    Looks fabulous! I have tried some of the Skinnygirl stuff and I have to say it’s ALL good. I like the Mojito but the margarita is right up there. I had company all weekend and a wedding shower so I got in zero exercise. I plan on more then making up for it this week. I also love that you celebrated National Dance Day!! Love SYTYCD!!

    • FitBritt

      I celebrated in my own little way! What do you think of this season of SYTYCD? I love it as always but I’m not as wowed by the dancers as in previous seasons (my mom agrees). Maybe as more are eliminated I’ll start to pick out some favs. The Skinnygirl mojito is also very good! I added fresh mint and it was divine.

    Awe – what a great weekend! You and your mom are too cute.

    I’ve never tried skinny girl products, but will have to give it a go. I ended up going to the beach on Saturday too, and it was PERFECT weather ๐Ÿ™‚

      Nice! What beach did you go to? It was such a great day wasn’t it!? I highly recommend the Skinnygirl line (and I’m not paid to say this, I just like them!).

    What a beautiful weekend you had! Your dinner looked amazing, seriously. And you and your mom are both so pretty.
    I haven’t tried any of the SkinnyGirl cocktails yet but I really want to, they sound tasty!

      Thank you for your kind words Sarah! The Skinnygirl cocktails are quite delish. I love that they are not super sweet and are lower in calories and sugar than regular cocktails.

    I love spicy sweet potatoes! You and your mama look so much alike! Isn’t girl time the best? I’ve been adoring your barre workout videos, so I’m excited to try the Zumba one! Thanks!

      Thanks Sarah! I hope you enjoy the Zumba one. I’m hoping to film a barre one again soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. One of the highlights of my weekend is that I get to produce flicks.
