BLEND Party at Lululemon

Happy Hump Day friends!

So glad to hear you guys liked my little sketches from yesterday. I should show you some of the real art work I’ve done before. lol


I hope your Wednesday went better than mine. I had the kind of day that inspirational quotes…


…and a home-cooked breakfast by hubby couldn’t make better.


Luckily there’s always puppy kisses and hugs.

I came home after a long day of work and collapsed on the couch where Bailey promptly jumped up on me as though to say, “It’s gonna be ok mom.”


It’s cute how worried he can look sometimes.


At least he got one smile out of me.

A sugary bear claw from a local bakery helped cheer me up a bit too. That or it gave me a sugar high.

Then, it was time to head out for a fun event a Lululemon – a BLEND (blogger + friend) event for local bloggers. I was feeling so drained from the day that I almost cancelled, but I hate when people cancel on me, so I didn’t want to do that tonight.

We got to model some of the shop’s latest clothes. And boy did they have some cute stuff! You know the shopaholic in me was itching to jump out and start buying stuff. Can you believe I don’t have any Lululemon clothes yet? And in case you were wondering, after tonight I still don’t have any. May-haps I’ll request some for Christmas? 😉

And then we got a free yoga class with new yoga instructor Elizabeth. Surprisingly, my wrist held out pretty well. Some of you probably already know that I don’t really do yoga because my wrist can’t take the pressure for long, but I would like to go once in awhile if my body will take it.

I think the yoga really helped lift my mood…not to mention just being around so many bloggie friends. And to think I almost cancelled! Pssh! I’m so glad I sucked it up and went to the BLEND party anyways! I felt so much better afterwards! 🙂


Check out how massive our Charlotte blogging crew is now. Maybe Charlotte is the blogging mecca of the country!


Hubby had WW spaghetti with meat sauce waiting for me at home. I added some frozen peas for extra veg.


Nom nom nom!

I requested tips on my Twitter for what TV shows to watch on Wednesday and so far the suggestions are:

  • Modern Family
  • Hellcats

Plus hubby likes to watch MTV Cut Throat. I typically don’t do well watching series because I forget when they come on and start missing episodes and then the whole thing stops making sense. Not to mention, I don’t really have time to sit around watching TV at night. But, I do like it on in the background, and once in awhile I can actually sit down and watch a show. Sometiiiimes.

What Wednesday night show(s) do you recommend?

PS I’m going to be hosting a Thanksgiving challenge again this year! Can’t wait to tell you guys more, but get started thinking of a Thanksgiving dish you can make a little healthier this year. 😉

  1. FINALLY SOMEONE ELSE WHO KNOWS WHAT A BEAR CLAW IS!!! theyre so amazing!!! i try to explain them to ppl who havent heard of them but they never understand!

    oh u yogis 😉 all so lovely looking! i always see people heading to the lululemon yoga classes and i think its wicked how they host them inside the store 🙂

    ps. MODERN FAMILY = ADDICTION!! and the office too <3

  2. Wednesday night is kinda crappy for tv, but I do like the new show The Whole Truth. It’s very law & order -esque.

    It was nice to meet you last night, I had to duck out while you guys were in child’s pose, Eli’s bedtime is 7-730 & he was getting restless.

    Hope today is better than yesterday.

  3. I’m a firm believer that dogs are incredibly sensitive to their people’s moods. Glad Bailey could at least get a smile out of you!

    The shows I watch on Wednesdays are The Middle and Better With You…simply because I only have bare-bones basic cable.

  4. Um… I may be alone, but I really like Hellcats! I DVR it and watch it without commercials after Modern Family is over.

    Also, Bailey is awesome. My dog is half corgi!

  5. Omg, Lululemon has the best yoga pants ever… I have a pair and they are literally sweat proof! They are pricey, but soooo worth the money. There is nothing worse then walking through the crowded gym worrying about whether you have SWASS (Sweaty A$$) but with the Lululemon pants you really don’t have to worry! I sound like a sales person haha but they are my new favorite gym item 🙂

    P.S. LOVE your blog D !

  6. I highly recommend Modern Family. I don’t really watch TV because I have to study every night, but I make time to watch this show 🙂

    What a fun blogger event. There are 3 Lulu stores near me and I should ask if they can host a blogger event here too.

  7. “A sugary bear claw from a local bakery helped cheer me up a bit too. That or it gave me a sugar high.” – Haha, you crack me up! 🙂 Hope today was much better for you!!

    Hmm, I wish I had some Wednesday night shows to recommend, but I’m currently trying to figure out what to watch then, too. So far… nothing great. Meh.

    So great to see you again last night!
