Happy Friday! How’s the morning? Anything fun planned for the weekend?
I tackled a 2015 fitness resolution: took a flamenco class!
Picture me stomping, clapping, yelling “Ole!” and crying sweet tears of joy.
Ok, it was nothing like that.
It set my soul FREE.
Flamenco is something that I’ve wanted to try for years. What stopped me? I felt kind of intimidated because it’s an entirely new-to-me style of dance. I knew I would be starting from scratch, and I let that deter me from even trying. With a nudge from the Pilot (who knew I would love it), I finally took a class. During the hour, we went over arm positions, hand movement, the basic steps, and worked on a Sevillana. Our instructor is from Spain, and is kind, lovely, and insanely talented. I’m so excited to be learning from her and can’t wait to go back.
Some more faves from the week:
Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars performing “Uptown Funk” on Ellen. I usually have Ellen on in the afternoons while I blog/work, and stopped to watch this entire thing. Not only does he sound incredible live, but the dancing is awesome.
This Fresh lip treatment. The sheer rosy tint is perfectly neutral, and it’s super moisturizing for the dry winter air.
True life: I’m married to a vegan. Roo wins the internet this week.
