Weekend Recap: Feeling Domestic & Paying Tribute Lady O (Michelle Obama) and Queen B (Beyonce)

Hey friends – how’s it going?  Hope you had a good weekend.  Those of you in Dallas know that we had an oddly chilly weekend – weather in the 50’s!  Cray Cray.  However, that didn’t stop us from rockin’ it out at PiYo on Saturday morning.  We threw on our long sleeve activewear and got our pushups, burpees and downward dogs in action at the W Dallas hotel!  After class I was feeling kinda groggy (I think it was the lack of sun).  This made me wanna stay inside all weekend, so I did…

Bundled up in scarves & jackets on a chilly Saturday morning in Dallas - didn't keep us away from PiYo class!

In my “homebody” state of mind, I made a quick trip to Target and bought some new Nate Berkus throw pillows for my couch (can’t go wrong with black and white).  I also stopped by Home Goods and got this cute gold serving tray to put on my ottoman.  While I was there, I saw this white faux fur throw and had to pick it up as well to accessorize my couch.  Just these small touches give my living room a fresh new look.  I love it!

So excited about my bachelorette pad and all of the cute new stuff I got from Target & Homegoods!

Last but not least, I finally framed the VOGUE magazine covers that I’ve had sitting in my kitchen drawer for almost a year.  I’m really happy with how my creation came out.  What do you think?  Most of you know that I a HUGE fan of both Michelle Obama and Beyonce.  In fact a made a Sexy Arms Circuit inspired by “Lady O” and an Amazing Abs Workout as a tribute to “Queen B” – I highly recommend you give both workouts a whirl.

On Satruday night, I stayed in and rented a movie On Demand – it was glorious!  On Sunday morning, I made myself some breakfast and watched church online.  It weird because I’m actually a very extraverted person and go out of my way to be around people.  However, every now and then I like to have weekend all to my self – no social plans and lots of time at home.  Do any of you feel like this sometimes?  

Now I’m happily watching football and blogging – working on lots of cool new workouts and giveaways for you this week.  What did you do this weekend?  I hope you have an amazing week ahead.  Lots of love, Brit
