How did I manage to get through the weekend without a blog post? I had more than enough free time. In fact, I spent more time on the couch than I did on my feet! Like, really, I watched 10 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on Monday…lazy!
It’s all good though because I
excelled at barely survived Hot Yoga on Saturday. A few fun facts about me: I’m not flexible, I have no upper
body strength, and I have a very short attention span…so a 90 minute hot yoga
class was the perfect workout for me on Saturday morning :) I was surprised. It
was seriously one of the best workouts I've ever had. I woke up on Sunday and it was all I could do to get myself from my bed to the couch. My arms and shoulders took a beating...bring on tank top season!
On Sunday, I went to a cookout/bonfire/Memorial Day Extravaganza and had a mojito for the first time ever. It's such a summer drink. Try it, you'll love it.
All you need is: rum, diet sprite, splenda, lime juice, limes, and mint leaves.
Muddle the mint leaves, lime juice, and splenda. Fill with ice, add the rum, and add the sprite...It's so easy!
Then, after looking at all of the pictures people kept posting on facebook of laying out by the pool, I got super jealous. (It might look summery in that picture, but we were in jeans and hoodies sitting by a bonfire just a few hours later!) After being jealous for 2.5 seconds, I got the brilliant idea to get a spray tan. According to the internet (and we know it's always right about everything), technologies have advanced over the last couple of years and you can now get a spray tan without looking like an oompa loompa. Count. Me. In. I gotta say, I'm pleasantly surprised at the outcome. For the next five to seven days, I will have the sun kissed look that all ginger kids dream about :)
....My only issue is that my hands are darker than the rest of my body...so if my hands are in my pockets or you see me wearing gloves when it's 90 degrees out, don't ask questions! Any helpful hints/quick fixes? Fill me in people!
