Over Smoothies

First things first, please don’t let this post’s title mislead you. In no way am I over smoothies. Quite the contrary in fact, I am on a big ‘smoothies for breakfast’ kick and figured that since I am currently sipping on one as I type, it could serve as the subject of today’s ‘over coffee’ like post.

Over our smoothies, I would tell you that I am so excited to start a Yoga Teacher Training Program this spring. Yoga has become one of my favorite daily activities. I feel so much stronger both physically and emotionally when I practice regularly and I find that I am much more present in each day. Not to mention, leggings and tanks all day, everyday? Yes, please.

Nola has also recently taken up yoga and favors the pigeon pose. It’s her first move out of bed each morning.

Over smoothies, I would say that it’s a good thing I have all those books up there waiting to be read, because I will be flying to Florida this week to join Dan while he is working. If I’m being honest, I will probably end up reading Glamour on the flight instead. Either way, I have the best of intentions ๐Ÿ™‚

And finally, as we finished our smoothies, I would show you my new journal and say how much I love the quote on the cover. My Pinterest mainly consists of inspirational quotes and dessert recipes, so of course the cover would have either a quote or eclair cake on it.

Treat Yourself Tuesday: Holiday Edition

Today I am linking up with the lovely Becky to participate in my first ever ‘Treat Yourself Tuesday’! And with it being December, I thought it would be fun to highlight the ways I will be treating myself this holiday season! Let me pull up my Pandora Country Christmas station and we’ll get started.

This holiday season, I fully intend to enjoy my favorite Christmas treats, butter, sugar, and all.

On that note, I will also be treating myself to homemade hot cocoa by the Christmas tree. Most likely on the daily. There is something so therapeutic about curling up on the couch and enjoying a hot beverage each evening.

This season, I will take the time to drive and stroll through neighborhoods full of holiday lights. While of course, listening to even more holiday tunes. You can never have too much ‘I’ll be Home for Christmas’.

And most importantly, I will spend as much time as I can with the people I love. Whether it be by taking a yoga class or watching Hallmark movies with my mom or having an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party with friends, I will appreciate the season for the opportunity it provides to spend quality time with loved ones.
