Hiiii my friends- I hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend. Mine was pretty calm and relaxing but it’s still nice to have a short week! My schedule has been jammed packed with a lot of work but I have still managed to have a good time.
I went to the O’s vs Red Sox game last week and it was a great time. I hadn’t been to a game all season and I LOVE go to O’s games (even though sometimes we aren’t very good lol). I think it’s all about the atmosphere…and the beer and food.
My friend let’s just call him big C sometimes gets tickets through his work and the seats were amazing!
I felt bad for these poor people in these outfits. It was hot and I hope they were getting paid a lot.
It was definitely a great time. A few of you asked about my jersey- I am pretty sure it’s a boys XL from Target. Much cheaper and cuter than the other random ones that they say are made for women.
I went to Shepherdstown, West Virginia on Friday to take an acro yoga workshop with Vanessa King. Vanessa was an awesome teacher and while I felt like there were challenging aspects to the class- it was totally available for all levels. The class was held at Jala Yoga which my close friend Christa owns. If you ever have to chance to go to Shepherdstown- you totally have to go. The studio is totally warm and everyone is super friendly and the town is really cute. Take a class from Christa and then check out Mellow Moods Juice Bar which is located underneath the studio.

I also spent some time with my family this weekend at my uncles bbq and celebrated my granny’s birthday.
I pretty much broke all of my dietary restrictions at the cookout and am kicking myself about it now.
I also tried to teach my little cousin some yoga poses but the pictures didn’t come out so well. It’s so funny because kids loooove to learn especially when you try to teach them something physical. But I find it so interesting that little kids can’t quite balance.
They’re super bendy, but they can’t stay still. I kept yelling statue! He tried. I guess it takes a while for some of those fine motor skills to be fully developed. And note my hair getting progressively bigger in every picture.
Lastly I worked on my fire escape garden. Wait till you see the pictures. When I lived with my sis in Canton a few years ago, we actually lived in a house and I had lovely plants outside of out place. Flowers and everything. They looked great. And then I moved to an apartment on a 4th floor walk up.
Yeah- weeds took over! Look how bad they looked! I spent a little over an hour sweating, weeding, and listening to the Pandora summer oldies station- praying no one was watching me.
I don’t know if any of you garden (on your stoop, with pots, in a backyard etc) but I really love getting my hands dirty, planting something, and watching it grow. I’ve been looking out my windows ever since impatiently waiting for things to grow.
Things are a bit more organized now as you can see. I have a few flowers to plant that my mom bough for me. But I planted 2 basil plants (gluten free pesto pizza yes please), cilantro, mint, parsley, and rosemary. So good. Last year I had a tomato as well as pepper plant but, sadly I don’t eat those anymore.
Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. Wisdom is oftentimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar. ~William Wordsworth
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was sealed off with a nice date night with Brad Pitt while having some of these.
I have to say- amidst the chaos, craziness, business, and fun- my life is good and I feel totally blessed and lucky to have to the life I have- even with all of it’s ups and downs (and this is probably because I know now how to handle the downs a little better than before).
This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can wasted it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be good. ~Unk.
