Bridal Shower, Kickboxing & Pumpkins – OH MY!

Happy Monday my friends!  I hope your week is off to wonderful start.  I taught an indoor cycling class this morning and now I’m at my neighborhood Starbucks sipping away on my grande bold coffee and working away on my blog.  This was a big football weekend in Dallas.  Our city hosted the Red River Shoot Out (Texas vs. Oklahoma football game) so every bar and restaurant was filled with the energy of football enthusiast.  I loved it!

On Friday night, my friends Andria, Ashley and I went out for happy hour at SiSu Uptown Dallas.  They have beautiful outdoor pool bar, as you can see above.  We mixed, mingled and sipped our drinks while enjoying the lovely Dallas skyline.  The weather was absolutely perfect – cool enough to wear jeans and cute scarves but warm enough that we we’re weren’t chilly.  I didn’t stay out to too late because I had a teach an 8:00am cycling class at Beyond Pedaling  on Saturday morning.

After my cycling class on Saturday, I co-hosted a bridal shower for a my childhood best friend Leslie who’s getting married in 2 weeks (pictured above).  We’ve been friends since we were 12.    Just for a little Monday chuckle, I’m also sharing a pic of us when we were 13 – haha (see below).  We’ve come a long way.  She’s gonna kill me when she sees this post.  Oh well, I value our friendship and am so grateful to have a friend who loves me unconditionally, flaws and all.  We had a wonderful time eating yummy brunch food, playing games and sipping mimosas.  After the bridal shower I was super tired, so I laid low and chilled at my bachelorette pad for the rest of the day.

On Sunday, I did my usual: Wake up early > eat a big breakfast > Church/read some inspirational books/watch OWN Super Soul Sunday > teach afternoon Turbo Kick.  I’m so happy that my class has been growing.  When I first took over this class, only 10-15 people would show up each week and now our class has grown to 25-30 attendees.  I love the energy of the class and that everyone works so hard.  We have a lot of fun and, of course, I blast the music to keep things lively 🙂

Post Turbo Kick Selfie (I was spent!)

After kickboxing, I stopped by my parents’ house to watch the Dallas Cowboys whip up on the Seattle Seahawks!  How bout dem Cowboys?!  I also enjoyed my mom’s Sunday dinner – yum!  I love a free meal.  When I got home last night I worked on my blog, lit my pumpkin scented candles and sipped some hot Lemon-Ginger tea (wonderful for digestion BTW).  It was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend.

  1. That sounds like a super rad weekend! I had a long weekend because it’s Sukkot, so I went to NYC to visit my family (both chosen and blood-related) and it was wonderful to see everyone. I’m doing this 30 Day Challenge run by Michael Rizk, and I have been not very good at actually doing it every day, but I’m pushing through. It’s nice to have a workout that focuses on the way the body naturally moves and working *at* the threshold but recognizing that everyone has different limits.

    I’m looking forward to trying out your 4 week plan, too! 🙂
