Festival 520 + all that acai

Hi friends! How’s your night going? Hope you’ve had a great day. <3

Mine included a lovely walk with these two nuggets,

and meeting Shaina at Tiki Port. The 420 bowl with peanut butter….

Acai pb explosion

No words can describe it. (If you don’t have an acai spot near you, here’s the recipe to make one, and just cover in a blanket of peanut butter!)

Workout-wise, it was an easier day with 30 minutes of treadmill walking and 10 minutes of rowing.

It always feels good to take a day off or an easy day after my Monday teaching double-dipper.

I can’t believe I haven’t told you about Festival 520 yet!

It just so happened that we were in Tucson for this magical event this past weekend, put on by my lulu friends at La Encantada. They had a packed schedule with fitness activities and fun events, including classes, massages, snacks, flash tattoos, and DJ pm yoga. Right before Liv’s nap, the fam dropped me off to enjoy some classes and shopping while she snoozed at my mom’s house. It was perfection, and I was so excited to see quite a few of my Tucson fitness friends. I ran down to say hi to Kate from barre3, and then went to take a class from this lovely lady:

Friday Faves

Hi from Tucson!! Liv and I got here yesterday morning, after an early Orange Theory class -it was hard to wake up, but I always love to get in an early workout on travel days- and packstravaganza. My last flight alone with Liv was when she was 4 months old (to Vegas!), and just as […]

Weekend in the desert


Hi! How was your weekend? Ours was a fun whirlwind of travel adventures: we made a roadtrip to Tucson. Of course, it was full of the usual T-town adventures: time spent with the fam and friends, Arizona basketball, dinner at my dad’s house, and a glorious yoga class at Session.  The best?  Seeing these little […]

Hi guys! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend <3 We’re having a great time with the family here in Tucson.

The perfect lunchtime salad, with greens, feta, almonds, chicken, strawberries, blueberries and pomegranate vinegar: Brownies, for girls’ night: We had wine, snacks and chatted for hours.

Morning! How’s your weekend going? Ours has actually been kind of *normal*, which is especially nice considering the fact that we’re in for a wild and crazy next couple of weeks.

Erin Condren planner. I can’t believe I haven’t written about this yet! I’m in love with this planner. Not only does it separate each day into morning and afternoon, but it also has pockets, custom stickers and birthday/anniversaries. I also love the inspirational quotes scattered throughout the book. A photography lesson. I was able to […]
