How was your weekend, friends?
We’ve been a little under the weather over here. Luke has been teething up a storm with SIX new teeth coming in. Two of them finally popped through last week, giving him some relief. But seriously, that boy wants to ensure that he has at least one tooth for every month he’s been alive. He has two more days until he is 7 months old and one of his bottom incisors is just about to make it’s appearance. It it does he will have seven teeth. Let’s see if he can keep up the pace! Also, he learned to clap yesterday. Here’s a short video of him randomly practicing this morning.
The highlight of our weekend was the Artcrank show opening party. Allan’s poster looked rad! It is always so much fun to catch up with friends and beam ear to ear with pride of my husband’s amazingness. We wont know how well his poster sold for a couple months, as the show is moving to One on One Bike Studios and Handsome Bicycle shop until early May. However, the early feedback seemed really positive. Missed the show? Want to check it out? Click here for the details.
Before the show, Matthew got a haircut! I am still shocked every time that I look at him and wonder if I made a mistake cutting off his beautiful curly hair. Although, now I need to decide if we should go shorter or let it grow out again. Opinions?
I finally made it back on my mat! It has been 7 months since I have been to the studio for a class. On Friday I took my very first Blooma Barre class. I had a lot of fun, but didn’t necessarily click with the class at first. It’s a lot of low weight/high rep moves mixed with some yoga and wasn’t initially convinced. I do love my heavy weights! I noticed that (one of) my favorite prenatal yoga teachers, Corrine, was offering Barre class at 6 AM on Monday mornings and vowed to myself that I would check it out.

So, I crawled into bed by 10:00 PM last night and set my alarm for 5:30 AM. After a bit of a rocky night with Luke (2 wake-ups totaling 1.5 hours awake) my alarm went off and Luke started crying. Allan changed his diaper, I brushed my teeth and hair, fed him for 10 minutes and rushed out the door while Allan rocked him back to sleep.
So, was it worth all of the trouble? YES! Corrine rocked Barre and it was just what I needed. I was sweating and shaking and completely engaged. I loved the yoga warm up and the cardio intervals combined with holds and pulses and squats and lifts. I plan to make her class part of my regular workout rotation!
I would also love to check out Jesse’s class, but that would mean packing up the kids in the middle of Luke’s morning nap to make a 9:30 AM class… which seems like such a headache.
Luke is asleep and Matthew just conked out. So, I better hit the shower before it’s time to prep dinner!
Have an amazing afternoon!
