five things friday where you can find out what’s been making me smile (or frown) this week
Hello again, my friends!
It feels weird only popping in once a week, but like I mentioned, work, and life, has become somewhat crazy, so I’m letting go of blogging obligations and doing what I have time for 🙂
With that, let’s dive into what I’m loving this week.
Wednesday I went back to barre after a two month break. Honestly? I felt weird about going back after being gone for so long. I never really intended to take such a long break (the first month was because I was teaching and it was ridiculous, and the second month just….happened?).
If you return to @barrebodystudio after 2 months away and don't take a picture, did you actually go? · · · Starting something new is much easier than returning to something after a break. It's been two months the since I've been to @barrebodystudio and I'll admit to feeling weird walking in the door today. I've missed @misscoonan and feeling the burn in my booty. And you know what? It felt so good to be back! I promise not to go 2 months I between barre classes ever again. #cowgirlruns
I was so sore on Thursday and felt so awesome. I really did miss it and I’m super glad to be back!
Bite Liquid Lip
I received these from Influenster and while I wasn’t required to blog about them, I am loving them!
The colours are fabulous, and they last forever almost an entire work day which includes lots of eating and drinking – highly recommend!
YYC Run Crew
Last night YYC Run Crew and Lululemon Calgary hosted a pre-Wheeze event for local runners going to SeaWheeze. I was stiff and sore from barre, but I also know I’m happier when I get out and run, so that’s exactly what I did.
Next stop, #SeaWheeze. Thanks to everyone who came out tonight for our Summer of Run party. Special thank you to @drjustintan for the rollax, our pacers @raflopez @shurl @goodemotivation @haylsg17 @justinkurek @kefleming @karaleiny @wholistichealthyyc @sheldonmsmith @jessicajurcic @ardenly, and the wonderful @lululemonyyc crew for putting this together for us! 🏃♀️💨🏃💨 #morethanmiles #yycruncrew #thesweatlifeyyc #thesweatlife #runyyc #werun4icecream
We met at the East Village for 5:30 and ran to Sandy Beach where we were greeted with an amazing dinner from Dirtbelly and kombucha from True Buch, in addition to saying farewell to the Test Truck (but not for long since it’ll be in Vancouver!).
Last week GARTH (yes, his name must be typed in all caps and no last name in required) announced he’d be playing in Calgary in September. Immediately Becky and I (and Mary!) knew we’d be getting tickets to see him.
This morning we secured our tickets to see him for a second time this year, and I’m super, duper, excited!
Poke Bowls and Lunch Dates
Yesterday I met up with Leslie for lunch before she heads back to Houston (sniff). We each enjoyed some super delicious poke bowls, and an hour of catching up. It’s been so great being able to see her when she’s been in Calgary.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait long to see one another again, as we’ll both be at SeaWheeze, so I’ll be seeing her in two weeks as well! Yaaaay!
