Sweet Treats

Hiiiiiii 😀 How are you?? I’m feeling SO much better after taking it easy last night, and actually slept through the night. I’ve only slept through the night a handful of times since the Pilot left, so it felt very bueno. I may or may not be napping in my acupuncture chair later, too 😉photo (4)

Thanks again for all of your lovely suggestions on sore throat remedies! I’ve been doing the salt water and apple cider vinegar things, and think they’ve helped so far. Bella also said thank you for the compliments on her new haircut… she feels very pretty 🙂

Speaking of sweet treats, check out the cake my bro made for his cakes final with Meg:

Gorgeous, right?! I already put in a cake order with him 😀

Yesterday was a great day at work, but there was a fail thrown in there. I taught a stretch class which ended up being WAY too hard, too fast (TWSS), and need to really slow down and simplify it for tomorrow. I think a lot of it was nerves, so it will be better tomorrow anyway. I also had to take a few classes yesterday so I can eventually teach them, including a water class that I actually liked!

Ya’ll know I can’t swim –I’m a float on a raft or cling to a noodle kind of girl- but this class was right up my alley, since we used THESE for it:


Flotation belts!

I actually like swimming when my risk of drowning is reduced 😉

We did a cardio workout using the floatation belts, and it was surprisingly VERY challenging and a lot of fun.

Some recent eats:


Breakfast cookie + 2 amazeballz


Brown rice tortilla with goat cream cheese and salsa

I’m off to walk Bella and then headed to work for an hour. Lots to do today!

See ya later (and also with a new fashion post) 😀



Something to talk about: What’s something you’ve always wanted to learn how to do? Maybe this summer will be the one I learn how to swim 😉 Any fun talents? I used to be able to play a song on the piano with my toes, but alas, I have giant monkey toes haha.

    I want to learn to dance like the contestants on SYTYCD! Unfortunately I lack the flexibility for half those moves, among other things 🙁 Every time I watch that show I wish I continued dancing (I only danced for a short period of time as a child).

    Oooooh water aerobics! Love it. So much fun! hmmm. learn to speak Spanish fluently would be muy bueno. My mother never spoke to us in Spanish unless we did something bad 😉 oh and Hungarian as well. lol.

    I finally figured out a good way to ship the macaroons…the reader who wrote the recipe that one at OSG’s valentine’s day contest gave me some great tips! Friends and family back in the US are loving mint mojito flavor!

    This playlist for yoga was posted on mind, body green. Since you put a call out for good tunes a few days ago, thought it’d be good to pass along.

    What is the green salsa you use on your goat cheese and salsa wrap? Where do you get it? It looks delicious!

    I’ve always wanted to learn the guitar! I tried a few summers ago, but I gave up after a few weeks haha.

    Also your brother is super talented! What does he plan on doing after he’s done with these classes? Open a cake shop hopefully? 😉

    Always wanted to learn how to surf – hoping to take lessons this summer with my daughters ( 4 and 5 yrs old). Should be quite the adventure;)!!

    Awesome you tackled your apprehension of the water and had a great workout! You will be a mermaid in no time!

    Learn to swim! I’m (finally) learning this summer after 22 years of barely doggy paddling around the shallow end; it’d be interesting to read another late-in-life swimmer’s experience with it!

      i’m a doggy paddler too 🙂
