Weekending – Crust, the Zoo, and Cuban food!

Weekending, weekending – It was another fun weekend in Naples. Today started out super cloudy but it cleared off and turned out to be the most perfect day!

How about a weekend recap?

First of all, check out Dean’s Friday face. The kid cracks me up!


After teaching BODYPUMP on Friday afternoon, I grabbed a late lunch at Chipotle with The Deanster. #chipotlequeen


On Friday night, Kyle and I hit up the new Crust location with some friends. Dean was actually really good and entertained himself with a large table of kids behind us. I was surprised since we were out way past his bedtime.

Saturday morning was the launch of BODYPUMP97 at the Y. Launch day is always so much fun!

Late morning, we decided to take Dean to the Naples Zoo for the first time. Once per month the zoo admits Collier County residents for free (tickets are normally almost $20/person so it’s a deal!) so we took full advantage. It was HOTTTT but Dean had fun animal (and people, LOL) watching.



Kyle had been wanting to try Rumba Cuban Cafe FOREVER (apparently it is rated #1 on Trip Advisor in Naples) so we made a quick stop after the zoo for some lunch. It was SOOOO good! I wish we lived closer because I’d be there more often than I like to admit ;) The best places to eat in Naples tend to be in random strip malls and Rumba is no exception to that rule. YUM.

The rest of Saturday we hung out at home. Kyle grilled chicken for dinner and we called it an early night.

And Dean snacked in the nude ;)


On Sunday morning I went out for a quick run – I didn’t have a time or distance goal in mind. It felt great!


Even though it was cloudy, we hit up the beach for a little family walk. Walking in the sand with a 20 pounder is no joke…


Kyle made lunch and had to do a little work so Dean and I made a Target run… Cheddar Bunnies for Deany, new pillow for mommy ;) That is how I like to shop!


And now I’m all prepped for the week – Clean sheets on the bed (and Dean’s crib), lunches packed, floors vacuumed… ahh feels so good. Andddd I’m also currently shopping for a lazy susan, any recommendations? There are SO many options, I’m overwhelmed!

How was your weekend? Any fun happenings to report?


  1. Dean is just too cute. Do I say that on every post? Sorry ;)

    So those leafy print shorts. I need those! Where are those from?! Also it’s been AGES since I went on a run. Like I can’t even remember the last time and that’s bad! I’m craving one now.
