Date Night at Home

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.

First things first: my new haircut!!! :mrgreen:

I love it! The hairdresser cut off nearly 4 inches! My hair looks and feels a zillion times healthier now. I even splurged and bought “fancy” shampoo and conditioner since my hair is so dry. I’ve totally abused my hair for the past few months and it’s time to stop!


Pug love! 😀



Mal and I stayed in for date night and dug into a special package from Hickory Farms.


Hickory Farms sent me their Party Planner Gift Box, which includes a whole slew of snacks, including a variety of sausage, cheese, mustard, and crackers as well as a cheese ball. I sort of love cheese balls! 😀


The best part about the Party Planner Gift Box is that Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength for every order. Wouldn’t this make a wonderful holiday gift?!


Pug head.


From the gift box, Mal and I selected the Original Cheese Ball (obviously), the Sesame, Caraway & Sea Salt Crackers, and the Beef Summer Sausage. (I didn’t like the Beef Summer Sausage, but Mal loved it!)


We also enjoyed some white wine with dinner.




Now, we’re enjoying some Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls on the couch. We have a lot of TV to watch. Our DVR is just about full!

Enjoy the evening! Happy weekend! :mrgreen:



  1. hair cut looks great!

    I love hickory farms packages like that and I LOVE cheese balls. my dad used to get them from customers at work for Christmas and on Chrismtas eve we would put down a blanket and have a picnic and watch a movie!

  2. When I was a kid my brother and always begged for Hickory Farm “cheese and meat boxes” for Christmas. We usually got them, but rarely ever ate them. It was more the novelty of logs of meat and cheese in a box.

  3. The snack box looks amazing! Love your hair, too.

    Our DVD is perpetually full. It’s mostly me with my craft shows. If my husband records 1 thing I tell him to hurry up and watch it so I have more room. LOL

  4. How is Murphy that close to the c-h-e-e-s-e and not going crazy?!? I think Olive would hyperventilate with excitement and anticipation.

    Your haircut looks cute! 🙂

  5. Oh man. Using fancy shampoo is going to change your life. Maybe not profoundly, but you’ll never go back to drugstore stuff. 😛 Enjoy!

  6. take my word for it…buy good quality shampoo. cheap shampoo ruined my hair when i was a teenager. i love the brand aubrey organics now. it’s great stuff!

  7. Love the haircut! =) I like having simple meals sometimes of cheese & crackers (& sometimes meat). There’s not always a need to cook

  8. Your hair looks so cute! I just got mine cut on Monday and had a similar situation as you, but a much different reaction. I was so sad to have so much cut off. But seeing how cute yours is has put a better perspective on it.

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Love the haircut!! I got my Hickory Farms package yesterday too, mine had turkey sausage, beef sausage, two blocks of cheese and two different types of mustard. I tried the turkey sausage yesterday…OMG…so good!!!


  10. We ordered the semisweet doughballs after everyone raved about them. They were okay, but $14 for 13 cookies, and then $15.91 for shipping!!!
    I needed them to be out of this world at that price. Also, there was no ingredient list or any nutritional information on the package. We ate them, of course, but I won’t order again. : (

  11. Cute haircut! I’m way over due for mine but I’m terrified to go in and get it cut – I’ve never been satisfied with a hair cut. It’s either too short, too long or has no shape!!
