Hey guys! I’m putting this post together while I enjoy a (big) glass of vino. So, cheers (even if it is the morning when you’re reading and you’re sipping something other than alcohol!).
So what’s fun is that while we moved away from pretty much all of our friends and family, we had a bunch come into town all at once. First, last week I told you about my grandparents arriving here (and are my saving grace for future outings alone!), well my sis-in-law also spent all last week here, so we went to visit her, along with my in-laws on the weekend. She was supposed to go home on Sunday but extended her trip a few extra days, which I think was wise because the weather was just gorgeous on Monday and Tuesday.
We got to have a night/dinner out with her on Saturday night, and that was fun…as always!
And then my friend Mel is in Orlando because her hubby has a convention going on right now. Last week she didn’t know if it was going to happen, but I’m so glad it was a go. I spent yesterday afternoon with her by the pool with Nia, and it was tons of fun. Although Nia was done-zo by the time we left. Two hours in the pool will do that to a toddler!
Mel and I are actually attending a Pure Barre class this morning, and I’m super excited to try it out. Can you tell the class to not kill me though? I can already hear my legs crying out in pain…and fear. Our reward for attending the class is going to the outlet mall afterward. Perhaps I can find a gem in lululemon.
And now… I thought it might be fun to do a few categories with a few points in each. Do you dig it? Ok, sorry. I’m just trying to be creative.
-Designing a new blog header is very hard when you’re an indecisive individual. I’m trying so hard to narrow down what it is I’m looking for BUT I JUST CAN’T DO IT!!! Suggestions?
-When we were driving back home on Sunday, the hubby went over some future blog ideas with me and I’m super excited. We came up with some good stuff. I hope you’ll like it.
-Run Happy still isn’t wetting my whistle. Again, I do apologize for the lackluster posts. I promise you that with switching blogs again (soon!) and coming up with blog ideas with the hubby, I can’t wait to fall back in love with blogging. I do miss the regularity of it.
-My ClassPass expires in a week and I’m hustling to get more classes in (I wanted to do at least five in the cycle). I had it scheduled to do a class this Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and I think I’m on track for that to happen. I just need to decide on a Friday class and double-check that my grandparents can watch the little stinker.
(Disclosure: I was given a month ClassPass to try out for free. As always, all opinions are my own though.)
-HOT yoga vs. WARM yoga: warm yoga is what my Monday ClassPass class encompassed, and I can’t really say I was a fan. I either want hot yoga or just your plain Jane, regular yoga. It was actually a detox yoga class and I liked that about it, but I guess I need to double-check the print on the studio temps before I hop on board. I’m hoping to give Bikram another shot this coming Monday (two weeks after the original time I tried it) to see if it grows on me a little more. The first time left me feeling weeewwww!
-I really need to incorporate running back into my workout routine. I thought I didn’t miss it, but I saw a lot of people out running yesterday as I was driving around and was kind of wishing it was me (just maybe not in the middle of the day with the heat those crazies were doing it in). That’s a big indicator that I’m ready to reintroduce it. Don’t even ask when the last time I ran was.
-Because I love being that person, I rocked a bathroom selfie out to dinner on Saturday night.
-I only legitimately put on make-up if I know I’m going out. So if you want to see my better side, wine & dine me ;).
-Saving the best for last: ummm, Fifty Shades of Grey – THE MOVIE. I have this website that uploads TV shows right after they’re aired and movies soon after they’re released (to stream instead of downloading), so when I saw the fifty movies on there the other day, I just had to see it. It’s been killing me. Too bad it was so disappointing and just awful. I’m soooo glad I didn’t end up paying a movie for that thing. They completely ruined it. I heard that the author had creative issues with the director and might just direct the next two movies herself – I say, maybe she should just remake the first one (I mean, do we know that Jamie Dornan is even confirmed for the next two – you can’t just switch Christian Grey mid-trilogy!), and go from there. Man, the movie was so terrible. I highly suggest you read the book for a redemption.
-Have you watched the show ‘Repeat After Me’?
Where they get celebrities to repeat exactly what is being fed to them through an earpiece. OH, MAN. It’s so hilaaaaarious. Kristen Bell was my fave. The video above is from last week with Kristen Bell appearance.
-I heard the saddest news I’ll ever hear when it comes to my love for Jared Leto. He cut his hair for his role as the Joker in the upcoming movie, Suicide Squad. RIP ombre locks.
-I have yet to watch the new show ‘Secrets & Lies’ starring Ryan Phillippe, but seriously judging by the previews for it, it looks so badass and now I can’t wait until we can watch it.
Tell me one piece of news about YOU!
