The Best Part

Hi guys! Hope youโ€™re having a fabulous Friday! So glad to hear Iโ€™m not the only one against the shoulder pad movement ๐Ÿ˜‰ Today has been a pretty chill day. I didnโ€™t train any clients, but am definitely on the mend from this funky virus/cold/thang ๐Ÿ˜€

As much as I love Viesaโ€™s cuteness, from her bear face to her donut tail,


The best part is her pointy cat ears.


As yaโ€™ll know, I adore a sweaty yoga sesh


but the best part, by far, is the little yoga nap called savasana at the end.


(Yes, I am a secretly an artist)

When we have people over for Mexican night, I usually only put the โ€œpretty chipsโ€ out from the bag.


The best part?

Crunchy little chip bites left for meeeeeeeee ๐Ÿ˜€

chips (2)

When the pilot works late, I send him occasional text messages to coerce him to come home.


The silver lining of him not being home for dinner?

Instead of cooking, I grab a smoothie


and go shoe shopping.

The worst part??

Selection is no bueno in Valdosta. Please send beautiful black heel vibes my way ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful night and Iโ€™ll see ya in the morning!

    Best chips EVER! I swoon at the sight of them.

  2. April @ Crazy Fabulous Life on August 6, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    That smoothie looks good ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel ya though, my husband would never go for a smoothie as dinner either!

  3. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on August 6, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    I never knew you were a graphic artist – what a lifelike resemblence!

    I totally agree with you about the chip crumbs at the bottom of the bag – they are the best!

  4. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on August 6, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    I always eat the chips at the bottom of the bag first…I love the baby pieces! Hope you keep feeling better!

    In my opinion…the best part about living in an area with so-so shoe stores is finding amazing websites to shoe-shop on! Good luck with the black heels..I’m on a boot/bootie mission myself!

    Have you tried Zappo’s. I’ve ordered several pairs of shoes from them and have been very happy.

    Is that a strawberry smoothie? It looks yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish many years of perfect high heels upon you! Hopefully a few of those good vibes bounce back my way, because the selection in Anchorage, AK isn’t too great either! I mean, we have a Nordstrom, but it’s so much smaller and sadder than the Nordstroms in the contiguous US.

  9. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on August 6, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Awww the pilot needs to come home to you girl! I’m sending some magic finding-sexy-black-heels powder your way ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have some black stiletto manolos in a 38 if u want to borrow. I think we’re about the same size. Not sure how dressy u want.

  11. Sana on August 6, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    I can’t wait to have Indian food with you in CHITOWN!!! I hope the next place you move to has a legit mall!

  12. momsgottheruns on August 6, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    hey girl! I’ve been following your blog for a while now (actually one of the very first blogs I’ve kept up with), and its one of the ones that has inspired me to start my own! Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Kris on August 6, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Your little white dog sitting on the yoga mat is too precious!!

  14. Allison @ Food For Healing on August 7, 2010 at 12:50 am

    glad your finally on the mend!
    don’t run yourself down though!

  15. Laughter-Loving Stacy on August 7, 2010 at 1:20 am

    Lol, you’re dogs are adorable.

  16. Emma on August 7, 2010 at 4:46 am

    Gina! I just wanted to say THANKYOU! You’re an inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚ Because of you I am now addicted to Zumba AND breakfast cookies! Thankyou for this AMAZIN blog. Love it! Oh…and the jacket I’m wearing right now has lil shoulder pads – nothing too rugby style tho ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs x x x

  17. Cyndi @ Weightless Life on August 7, 2010 at 6:14 am

    Your dogs are too cute. Sometimes the crumbs at the bottom of the bag really are the best part. Thanks for such an optimistic post! I’m glad you’re feeling better.

  18. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on August 7, 2010 at 8:58 am

    Savasana is the best pose!!! I’m not a very experienced yogi, but I will say I’m pretty good at that pose lol! Had to laugh at your ‘pretty chips’ comment too – I totally do the same. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck with the shoe hunt!

  19. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on August 7, 2010 at 9:28 am

    I love the chips at the bottom of the bag too!

  20. Faith @ lovelyascharged on August 7, 2010 at 10:15 am

    And here I thought I was the only one who searched the whole bag for all the “nice” chips to put out when I’m making food for someone else…

  21. on August 7, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    definitely sending you healing vibes! mm im sure that smoothie helps too <3

  22. Laury @ thefitnesdish on August 7, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    I ha d the sweatiest yoga sesh yesterday…and ended with Savasana…my fav pose ever ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I will send you my beautiful black heels vibe…hit up DSW yesterday, got the hottest Carlos Santana Heels…so those vibes are in the air! ENjoy!

  23. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on August 7, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Oh girl when I lived in NC & SC it would pain me!! to shop there. I’d rather not shop than try to “shop” there. No offense, but Belk and Dillard’s are not really my scene LOL. I hope you got some cute stuff…I mean, yes sometimes you can find things, but you know, in general, it can be a lil tricky ๐Ÿ™‚

    Savasana..nothing better after a nice practice…ahhhh, om shanti baby!


  24. knotsbyashley on August 7, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    oooh i love the picture with your dog on the mat with you =D Whenever I do yoga at home my pug does the same thing! too cute. Good luck shopping!

  25. Rachael on August 7, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Shopping in the South – I feel you. I’m a horrible shopper to begin with, but unless you’re 13, a debutante or really into scrubs, my area of North Carolina has zilch (cool stores in Asheville though, just not in my price range).
    Partner-less dinners make a great excuse to eat whatever you want, sans fuss!

  26. Shanna @ Shanna Like Banana on August 7, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    That’s just shoe selection??? I feel for ya! I’ll send good vibes your way…try, try again ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Heather (Heather's Dish) on August 7, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    if i could send you a great pair of heels i would! good luck with the search!

  28. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on August 7, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Bummer about the shoes! I always have so much trouble finding the one thing I’m looking for when I’m shopping, but I have no problems finding a zillion other things I want. ๐Ÿ˜›

  29. babs on August 7, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Smoothies are like choc and great anytime! Yours looks delish. I’m currently addicted to pineapple/raspberry smoothies. Summer is amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Kelly on August 9, 2010 at 9:33 am

    Ooooh totally know what your new car is now!!! Aren’t they they best? I’m on my second one, so spoiled now, haha.
