-A collection of Nelson Mandela quotes. The world lost a truly amazing man yesterday. While he is no longer here on this earth, he left behind a legacy of hope, peace and kindness <3
-Mocassin family. How adorable are those tiny mocs?! I can’t even.
-Which Love Actually character are you? I got Juliet, but was kind of hoping for Aurelia 😉 Word to the world: the Pilot does a very nice impression of Billy Mack.
-Reuinted with the breakfast cookie. IIIIIIIIIII will always love youuuuuuuuuuu…..
-The munchkin room!
Last time I took Livi to the munchkin room at the base gym, she was a tiny baby, and we didn’t last very long. This time, I planned on getting a workout anywhere from 5-45 minutes, depending on how Livi was feeling, and figured we could give it a whirl and if it didn’t work out (<— pun) it was NBD.
The verdict? She had a blast! They have fun toddler gym equipment -like tunnels and houses- toys, magnetic doodle boards, etc. I got in a 40-minute treadmill workout -working much harder because I didn’t know how long we’d be there- and she started to cry when I told her it was time to go eat. (The key of getting out of the “we have to leave” tantrums: telling her to say “goodbye” to whatever it is and that we’ll see it soon. For some reason, it totally works. “Bye, park! See ya soon!” and now I jinxed myself for typing that)
As much as I love Scandal on the spin bike and my at-home weight workouts -so glad you guys liked the Frost HIIT workout!- it’s amazing to have another option and be able to take Livi with me.
–Marie Forleo. I’ve been a fan of her for a long time, and her tips and insights are always helpful. She has a tendency of getting into my brain 😉 If you have a business and/or work in social media, I strongly recommend her videos– lots of awesome info for freeeeee.
–This bag in teal. Santa, I’ve been good 😉 I’m really liking winky faces in this post for some reason.
-Fresh Balsam candles. Back in the day when I was going through a horrible breakup, I joked to my friends I’d end up being a candle lady (I like cats but could never see myself having more than one. I pictured myself lonely and surrounded by candles). I’m still a candle lady. I hoard them every year, and am somehow out again. Back to BBW…
–Hostess gift ideas for all of those holiday soirees.
-The magic that is this preschool tapper.
-This mind-blowing photo studio.
-This hilarious Christmas wish list. The language is a little colorful, just as a head’s up, but I laughed with tears falling down my face for at least three minutes.
Any faves to share this week? Fitness events on the horizon? I’m doing a yoga workshop and the Pilot is running a MARATHON. He’s done a few before, but I’m sure he would love any of your comments of tips or encouragement 🙂
Have a wonderful day and I’ll see ya later with the last giveaway for week 1 and a new Family post.
