Road Trippin’

Heyyyyyy Open-mouthed smile How are ya?

We’re in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, about to get on the road. So glad you liked Mara’s guest post– she’s pretty much amazing <3

I drove for 11 hours yesterday! It was intense, but I was so happy to have the puppers and Madre with me.

A little tip for ya:

Bass Pro Shop is an ideal travel rest stop if you have pets. They allow dogs and you can shake your legs and do a lap around the store with them.

And you can pose with hoodie mannequins if you like Winking smile

After our long day on the road and Bass Pro stop, I introduced the Madre to the glory of Longhorn Steakhouse


and we checked into the hotel Smile


Dinner was the Longhorn standard:

Salad, perfect buttery salmon, plain baked sweet potato and veg

+ crusty wheaty bread


uh huh uh huh uh huh

This morning, I got up a little early so I could do the workout thang. I did a 30 minute yoga flow in the hotel room, ab work, and the 5 minute cardio video I’ll be posting when I get it uploaded to YouTube Smile



Breakfast cookie dough cereal topped with chia seeds- the madre brought a GIANT bag with her Smile

Have a wonderful Indian Food Wednesday and I’ll see ya later today!

    Hey Gina! Do you ask for your veggies with no butter from LH? I used to work there and they put an ungodly amount of butter on the veggies if you don’t say anything.

    Ooh, you passed through Lafayette! Hope you picked up some feel-good vibes from me! glad you’re having a good road-trip. I love watching others road trip via the net.

    my favorite road trip was from louisiana to montana – that was freakin’ long! my husband and i went before our first son was born. we took three weeks and just drove casually and stopped at everything we wanted to stop at. it was a blast!
