The sun is shining, my chai is warm and delicious, and I just know it's going to be a great week! And, I just found out that my Dad is coming for a visit and will be arriving this weekend! Yes! I haven't seen him since I went back to Michigan for Thanksgiving, so I am super excited because I miss him like mad. He's just the best. But, of course, that means it's time for a SUPER CLEANING MARATHON this week (so long pug hair tumbleweeds rolling through the apartment, so long stacks of vintage housewares I need to tag for the next sale spread throughout our dining room; Dad's coming and ya'll got to GO!)!
So, I am a little sore this morning. My hips still ache. My ass is still throbbing. My stomach muscles are in a mood. (I didn't even know I had stomach muscles!) All thanks to Patrick for making me go to yoga on Saturday morning. And not just ANY yoga. Freakin hot as the desert, 105-degree yoga! But, I did it, and guess what?
I LOVED it. I have never sweat so much in my ENTIRE life and I am a HUGE wimp, but I got through it and I felt like a NEW woman.
It was amazing. Erin and my love Cayla went with me, and it was so nice feeling their love and support next to me. Every time I thought I was going to pass out, I would look over and see one of them smile at me, and I knew I could do it. ♥
And, I did. And I will be going again this Saturday. Because it rocks. it was the first hour in weeks that I wasn't in my head.
I wasn't making a to-do list. I wasn't worried. I wasn't thinking. It took everything I had to just get through it. But your mind and your heart and your spirit need a break from life for a while. Even a very short, albeit, HOT break. But if you haven't tried it, I would seriously recommend it. If I can do it, YOU can. Believe me!
After yoga, I then headed out to Erin's for a clothing swap!
I went with three bags and came home with one. It is full of new (to me) treasures, including a hot pair of booties from Emma's closet (thank god someone has big feet like me in the group! Thanks, Emma!), and lots of new cute sweaters that I can't wait to wear.
Here's a shot of the gang (Thanks, Lindsey for taking such cute photos!):
You know I love me a smooshed face pup!
Wishing you a fabulous Tuesday!
