Nice Saturday, Carrot Bread, Skinny Tina Bars

Hello! First off, I wanted to thank you all for your understanding/sweet comments on my last post. Second, I hope you're having a lovely weekend. It has been a very pleasant one around here so far!

Friday: Taught Body attack, made some Skinny Tina bars (with chocolate chips since Josh isn't a huge raisin fan), relaxed


Saturday: Taught Body Step, ran to Costco for some shopping, ate lunch from Pita Pit outside in Charleston


Made some carrot bread to bring to my mom tomorrow (note: if you use this recipe, the loaf took about an hour and 5 minutes cooking time for me):

Tonight, we had a lovely dinner out with our friends Jill and Chip. I will post a restaurant review tomorrow! Good night and Happy Early Mother's Day to all those awesome Mamas out there!
