5 Years of Marriage

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Five years ago today, I married my best friend.

And it’s been a wonderful and amazing adventure ever since!

I honestly can’t imagine some of the best moments of my life without Mal by my side. He’s the greatest guy and, boy, do we have a lot of fun together! With that said, here are our (Mal helped me brainstorm) favorite moments from our first five years of marriage!

Welcoming Murphy into the family.

I can’t imagine our lives without this little furball!

And, of course, CrossFit. We’ve had a ridiculous amount of fun WOD-ing together!

The first five years of marriage have been a blast so far, and I can only imagine what the future holds for us!

P.S. Here’s a recap of our previous anniversary celebrations. Mal and I had a good laugh about last year’s “celebration!” Haha!

P.P.S. Here’s our engagement story in case you’ve never read it!



  1. Happy Anniversary to you and Mal! I’m so glad to have the chance to follow along on your journey. Someday, I hope to marry my best friend, as well, as I feel first and foremost a solid friendship is the basis for a healthy, long-lasting and fulfilling marriage.

  2. Happy Anniversary! I gotta say all the pics of Murphy are always adorable but that pic of him as a pup is too cute!

  3. It’s amazing how fast time goes by! I have a wedding anniversary coming up soon–while marriage isn’t always easy, it gets better with time.

  4. Happy anniversary! Looks like I will be having the same anniversary.. I’m getting married next July 12th! (We enjoyed celebrating our -1 year anniversary today!)

  5. Congratulations Tina! I just celebrated my 1-year wedding anniversary, and reading your post makes me excited about the upcoming years. It looks like you and Mal have so much fun together!

    I loved reading your engagement story by the way. So romantic! Congrats again on 5 years 🙂

  6. You two seem that you have the best time with each other. I love how happy you two are and all the adventures you share. You are lucky to have found each other.

  7. Pingback: A to Z
  8. You both look amazing! Now you must be on your way to 8 years, how time flies! Both of you look incredible and God Bless you on your journey xo

  9. We are only on our 2nd year of marriage and hope we will be as happy as you too still are in another 3 years! Congratulations! Here’s to 10 🙂
