It's Friday I'm awake way too early and that means I'm wordy!

Hello hello hello!
It's 2:30am and I'm awake again -- could someone please explain to my body how absolutely unacceptable that is?

How are you this Good Friday?

Lets play the Friday fill in game shall we?

1. If I could go anywhere on a road trip, I'd go to oooh road trips, I love me some road trips! I would love to go back to Chincoteague Virginia - that's a pretty sweet road trip. I am dying to take the poodle and the hubs to Arcadia national park (none of us have been). My dream vacation involves my two favorite men (the 2 above) and an rv and a coast to coast tour!<\b>
2. well there are LOTS of things but a simple straight answer for that is algebra is something I don't understand. I took it 7 years and never passed - it was so pathetic that my high school let me take algebra and a basic math (think addition and subtraction) my second senior year (yup you read it right) so at least I could graduate when I failed algebra
3. Easter makes me think of these days? Egg hunts and bunny ears (see poodle pic from last year). The hubs does a big hunt for adults (and a couple kids). As a child it reminds me of church and my sister's amazing voice (she used to sing sandy patty's was it a morning like this at church! I lived for it)
4. A hike in Harold Parker state forest with my faithful sidekick frolicking is the best way to relax!
5. It looks like Spring might be making an appearance sometime soon, I saw a cardinal yesterday - though I still haven't seen a robin.
6. green juice. is one of my favorite healthy snacks. ever since I got my juicer i am a juicing machine - try one with romaine, carrots, ginger, a pear and a green apple
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to spin and making a flower arrangement for a friend who is going through a tough time, tomorrow my plans include the normal saturday classes at the gym and then making sure baskets are ready and Sunday, I want to hang out with the in laws. I'm making them some beef stew I found on Pinterest - if it's any good I'll share the link. I also have to make an extra batch of cookies and a batch of muffins (they like their baskets to be homemade gifts) on Saturday!

Some other pretty cool (way more than PRETTY cool if you ask me) news that I have is Mr poodle man graduated from Dog B.O.N.E.S. and will be starting work as a therapy dog at new hospitals and nursing homes! I could NOT be more proud if little man!

Also I just learned about A cool concept for shoes with a kick starter campaign

And I think that finishes it for today!

what are you doing for Easter? Do you still get baskets from the bunny?

Good morning it's Friday

It's bright and early Friday morning! The impressive part is that I know it's Friday - I've spent most of the week a day behind.

As most Fridays I'm playing along with Friday fillins and you should too!

1. The wind blew wildly and made me worry that the house was going to fall over (this didn't happen this week but every time it's windy I worry).

2. running with a friend for her first race (there really is something so magical about your first race - totally admit I was teary for her) and a fabulous friend who has been supporting me during a rough few weeks (thanks Laura - the world is better for having you in it) made me feel warm and happy all over.

3. The smell of clear, clean, outdoor pine (similar to song of angels aka the best Yankee candle scent ever) makes me think of the day that I fell in "safety and trust" with the hubs (I loved him when I met him at 9 but this one day he took me up to Franconia notch I think we were 26 and after the gondola ride up the mountain we came to the patch of trees and the view and the scent and everything I just knew that we were meant for each other and he'd never intentionally hurt me). (Oh my gosh I love this one since I am so scent oriented)
4. When I am feeling lazy I nuggle the poodle.
5. Brilliant neon yellow is my favorite - it'll probably change tomorrow I love all the colors
6. The door creaked and a friendcame in.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to spin and I need to make my friend (of the race) Pizza lentils , tomorrow my plans include my normal saturday morning classes at the gym and going to see oz with my sister. i also have to start stock piling vases from AC Moore because I'm doing the flowers for a may wedding and ironically it's cheaper to buy the vases there one at a time with the coupon of the week (ps did you know you can google it on your phone and just show it to them) than to buy them wholesale and Sunday, I want to get to the gym and then actually see that man I'm married to! He has plans tonight, he works Saturday morning/afternoon and is then going to see his niece in a play.

What are you up to this weekend?

Friday of the anniversary variety

It's funny though I love him so much more and differently than I did then!

Lets do fillins - play along Here

1. I was looking for my wedding ring for a month (lost it in the blizzard last month) but I found it yesterday just in time WAHOO.
2. social media is one of my favorite ways to socialize. otherwise I'm pretty scared
3. I looked at the clock this morning and seriously contemplated going back to bed but I really needed to workout.
4. freeis the type of pen I most prefer to use. ;-)
5. What in the world is up with 50 degrees one day and 30 the next!
6. losing my thought seems to happen to me often.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to anniversary date night!!! we went to boston and are seeing a play! tomorrow my plans include i have 6 classes scheduled at the gym and the poodle and his cousin need a walk and Sunday, I want to run a 5k, clean and get a pedicure!

What are you up to this weekend???

Doing yoga "blind"

I wear glasses because without the the world is just a blur - no real beginnings or ends, just colors. Hmmm, sort of like a reflection on water. I have a ton of different pairs of glasses, some for fashion some for fitness. Well today I wore a pair that was too big for working out (aka when I did a push up they fell off), I debated going home to get my workout glasses but I really didn't want to miss a class.
They weren't a problem for my spin classes - even in 3 your head is up enough.
It was pretty good in barre but when doing planks or push ups they fell off so when yoga began I just took them off.
It was a pretty interesting experiment
Not being able to see myself in the mirrors and not really having an ending of body was cool. I was able to let go of myself and relax into poses rather than critique myself nearly as much... No notice of body size and pedicure needs!

I wonder if I should do this more often...

do you yoga? How much do you pay attention to looks?
