-Yoga. I always love yoga, but it’s even more delicious after a bit of a hiatus. Hot power yoga is my absolute favorite, but I *thought* all of the classes here were 90 minutes and far away. Not the case at all! Kyle and Meg introduced me to a studio downtown, $4 seriously hot yoga, an incredible instructor and practice is 60 minutes. I think it’s going to have to become a regular thing- this studio was like my Yoga Room meets Orlando Power Yoga.
-Valentine’s day. Anyone else really in the Valentine’s mood this year? Those Hallmark commercials get to me every.single.time (waterworks extravaganza) and I’m excited to make Valentine’s cards with Liv and plan a fun dinner date with the Pilot.
-Impromptu dinner parties. We invited some friends over tonight for dinner, cocktails and dessert. Livi will also have a little friend here- should be a blast 🙂
-Ocho bars. By the time I got my phone out to snap a pic for you, all that was left was a wrapper. I have no idea what happened to it.
-Livi’s unwavering love of all things Elmo. Give that girl a baby doll, something Elmo-related and a book, and she’s a very happy kid. I had to finally start telling her that Elmo goes to sleep in my phone (we have the “Call Elmo” app for emergency mode- usually when we’re waiting in an awful long line for something and she gets antsy), but she started to say, “El muh? El muh? EL MUH?!” every time we would hang up with him. Now it’s “Shhhh..Elmo’s sleeping. Let’s say ‘goodnight’ for his nap” and she gently pats the phone.
-When the time clicks over to the next day, my top search results are always a good time:
-Facials, one of the most underrated spa treatments. One of the [many awesome] perks about working at a resort is that we have instant access to fitness classes, lectures, spa treatments and services. If we have an open hour in our schedule, we can go work out, chill in the locker room (I’ve taken a nap before) or see if there’s an opening for a spa treatment. I treated myself to a facial last week and it was glooooooorious.
-Speaking of spa treatments, how about a little spa treat for one of you? My friends at Canyon Ranch offered a lucky Winter Shape Up participant an incredible gift basket with all of the things you need for a Canyon Ranch-inspired day at home:
-an inspiration journal
-comfy robe and slippers (the robes are to diiieeeeee for)
-DVD (with my beautiful friend Heather on the cover- she’s amazing)
–Nourish cookbook (<– Affiliate link; thank you for supporting the blog!), which is one of my all-time faves
