So glad you guys liked Bailey’s video premiere! His brithday is just starting as this blog post publishes! Woohoo!
Been hoarding my HLS swag bag goodies…*sigh*
I always save the good ones too long! lol
Loved my Empower Glo Bar sample. I waited a bit to eat it, but it was still quite tasty. Thanks Ang!
I made some date-rice-milk-oats for a pre-workout snack WITH salt (new trick I learned thanks to that talk on Sports Nutrition at HLS).
Taught a fabulous private Zumba class tonight with a guest appearance from my head instructor, Erica. We busted out a lot of fun, new songs:
- What Is It
- Shake Your Pom Pom
- Press It Up
So fun! I just love that Shake Your Pom Pom song (from the Step Up 2 the Streets soundtrack) but I can’t remember the choreography! Hopefully Erica will help me learn it. 🙂
Erica and I hit up Dean and Deluca for some post-workout sustenance to enjoy whilst chatting about class, choreography notes, areas for improvement, and all that fun stuff.
The pita chips here are to-die-for, so I had to have them. I got some hummus for pita-chip-dipping along with an expensive fava bean salad ($8 for that small container! As if!) and some black bean chili. The soup was just ok, but the hummus and chips…LOVE!
Dessert = an adora sample from the HLS swag bags.
I definitely wasted a good 20+ minutes watching old-school Michelle Kwan videos. The videos make me miss skating terribly, but I also feel extremely lucky to have been growing up along with Michelle (we are nearly the same age just 2 months apart). It was awesome to enjoy her skating while I was practicing figure skating, too. It seems no one can match her talent and artistry.
Here’s a wonderful video from when Michelle won the 2003 Worlds – such a powerful program! I can’t believe she almost quit competing a year or so before this, but I’m so glad she didn’t.
By the way, we lucked out big time with Cafe Don Pablo coffee giveaway! At first, Don Pablo was just going to give away 1 bag of coffee, but they decided to give everyone who entered a free bag instead! How generous! 🙂
Thank you Don Pablo!
I emailed all the winners earlier today. If you didn’t receive an email, but you entered the giveaway, please shoot me an email and let me know.
Currently enjoying some fresh-brewed hot tea.
Time for bed…g’night!
