Booty-Lifting Workout

Hi friends! Hope you’re having an amazing day. We are slowly making our way through the post-vacation laundry avalanche. It feels good to be back home, but I wish that a magical fairy would appear and make all of the *stuff* disappear. That would be cool. In the meantime, you’ll find me buried beneath the rubble. Also, Amazon Christmas is starting to stack up in the entryway, so I’m trying to wrap and store everything to take with us when we move. It was equally creepy and hilarious when one of the boxes started talking: “Hi, I’m Violet.” 

I taught a fun, but slightly emotional, spin class last night. Class was PACKED and I had to tell everyone it was my last Monday teaching (they’re switching out the schedule for December). It’s my last week teaching Spin, and next week is my last week teaching barre. I guess it’s time to squeak my way into a sub schedule for when we’re in Tucson. You know how I get when my teaching hiatus is too long (<— a little crazypants). Change is a-comin’ – that’s for sure. I came home to weep silently into this spicy bowl of pho.  

Pho nomenal

(Ok, I didn’t really weep, but I was definitely a little sad.)

I also broke out the sparkly slippers because it’s rainy and chilly and wonderful over here.

So for today, I have a booty workout for you! I feel like I’ve been flooded with booty workout requests lately.

Virtual wine date

[It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?] Hi friends! It’s been a while since we’ve had a little wine, coffee or tea date… so here we go. 😉 If we were having wine right now, it would probably be somewhere we could share some delicious appetizers. Seasons 52? Done. If we were having wine right now, I’d […]

Home for the holidays

Hi friends <3 Hope you’re having a great morning and enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  In the spirit of keeping it real… (Sweet snuggly baby, blotchy eyes from crying, and a cold sore because my immune system is officially giving me the middle finger)

Paleo Baby Meal + around the weekend

Hi friends! Happy Monday! How’s your morning going? Anything exciting happening this week? I can’t help but already feel excited because we’re headed to Tucson next week.

Welcome back, Cobb

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a wonderful day! It’s been a bit of a busy week already. Yesterday, I went to go to see the doc for some heart palpitations I’d been experiencing. I’ve had them on and off for a couple days along with some extreme nausea and fatigue. They wanted me to go […]

Traveling misadventures + Hi from Arkansas

Hi friends! How’s the morning going?  We are in Little Rock, Arkansas! We came here to visit the Pilot’s family, and meet our new niece, Nylah. We can’t wait to see everyone! It feels so great to be here, and even better after a crazy night of travel. (I’ve always been obsessed with the tall, […]

Twice-baked sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts hash

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Liv and I have been playing nurse to the pups; they’re still moving a little slowly after their dental cleaning yesterday. Poor girls. 🙁 Hoping they’re back to their spunky selves soon. Instead of a picture of them looking tired and forlorn, here are some succulents: Last night was […]

Fitness Instructor Cliches

Hi guys! How’s your day going? So happy you liked the pizza/flatbread recipe! Let me know if you give it a try. The past few days have been interesting. I’ve had to avoid the temptation to use my left hand in daily life (or face the stinging consequence). That means avoiding exercises that involve gripping […]

The weirdest breakfast ever

(and that one time I had to ride in an ambulance. Please skip this post if you’re squeamish, like yours truly.) Hi 🙂 Hope you’re all having a wonderful day. I’m typing this with one hand because I had a little incident today. It all started with this weird breakfast I had yesterday. This is […]

Yoga teacher training

Lots of snuggles and downtime over here:  Even though I hate when Livi is sick, the cuddles and downtime have been amazing. After a frantic week last week, some forced relaxation is much-appreciated, especially when I get to spend it relaxing with noodle. Usually she rarely sits still, but we’ve been camped on the couch […]
