#100daysofhappiness: Day 51

Well now that busy season is over we actually get to enjoy spending time together during the week!  We went and enjoyed one of our favorite wine bars called Winslow’s.  I enjoyed my Sangria on the patio! Bonus that they also have amazing food!  Their mac and cheese… to die for.

#100daysofhappiness: Day 50

Well I am halfway through my project…. and this has been more challenging than I thought!   Today is tax day and while most people dread this deadline when you are married to a CPA who is in the tax department you are so excited when it comes.  It means I have a husband again!

This little cute Snoopy cartoon makes me smile because while I don’t like taxes it pays the bills 🙂

Ya’ll I know I am WAY behind on the Kendra Scott thing but I am obsessed with the earrings below! I have always liked the jewelry but kind of brushed it off.  However, I have been eyeing these for months! Plus, no matter what your size earrings ALWAYS fit! skylar-earrings-gold-teal

30 Thoughts During Barre Class

For those of you who know me know I LOVE barre… I am a “Barre Junkie”.  However, the internal thought process that happens before and during class is quite entertaining (IMO).  Some people are so confident in working out, me not so much. The first time I ever went to class felt like the first day of cheerleading practice.  I was super nervous.

This post is meant to encourage people to try new things and realize even the most expierneced ones are attending the class to challenge themselves too! Who knows in a few months the “newbies” may be looking at you thinking WOW they are good! Hope these thoughts give you a few chuckles!

  1. I wore my cutest workout outfit today…. It will help my talent shine through. [More on Barre Fashion next week ;)]
  2. Gotta be early so I can get MY mat.
  3. OK. Got MY mat. Start stretching so you don’t feel awkward.
  4. I really hope I’m not the only non-ballerina looking, uncoordinated one in the class.
  5. There’s the instructor. Time to start. Man I wish I could have that body. Maybe if I do barre twice a day for like forever I could…. She probably doesn’t even eat pizza….
  6. Warm up time. AND march, march, march… Don’t fall over onto the person next to you.
  7. Ugh already time to plank…. Geeze.
  8. Thank goodness that’s over…. Arm workout engage.
  9. My shoulders are going to fall off… these 3 lb weights feel like 25lbs…. I definitely could never do crossfit.
  10. Ok leg on the barre…. Pretend you are a ballerina….
  11. Wow, everyone in class must have been a dancer their whole life… they all are SO much more graceful than me.
  12. I really should have stuck with dance… I could have been a Broadway star.
  13. SHE SAID GET THE BLUE BALLS OUT…. How does no one else think this is funny.
  14. Chair… I hate chair… more than planking even….
  15. Squeeze the blue ball… on relevé… this.hurts.bad.
  16. This better help me get a thigh gap.
  17. TRIPLE TIME?!??!
  18. Pretzel? Man, this instructor is doing ALL of my LEAST favorite moves
  19. My legs and butt should definately look like a supermodel buy the end of this class
  20. Blue Balls are back in action for core work [internal giggling]
  21. Pelvic thrust. Thank god guys aren’t in this class
  22. ABS. OF. STEEL.
  23. Oh I really like this song…. Has music been playing this whole time?
  24. Back dancing…. This.is.awkward. I hope no one is looking at me.
  25. Stretch time. YES. I see the light.
  26. Happy baby, I hope my pants aren’t see through…. Lululemon I am talking to you.
  27. Ugh I hate stretching my IT band. Not relaxing.
  28. Woah… I think my flexibility is improving…. I am practically a gymnast.
  29. Ahhh lay down and relax time. I DOMINATE this.
  30. Yay, clap for everyone you survived!!! I feel like wonder woman and I’m one class closer to actually being good at this. BROADWAY HERE I COME.

I LOVE home decor…. I am always drawn to buy new items.  I really love apothecary jars.  I have 6 in my kitchen.  Some serve a purpose (holding flour and sugar).  Some are just for decor.  Here is my favorite grouping/use for my jar.

WINE CORK HOLDER! I plan on saving them and using them in another project but it is so fun having friends over and adding to the jar.  It is like a jar full of fun memories!

I feel the best place I have found these at is HomeGoods… They usually have a great variety or sizes/shapes and sometimes even colors!  Both below are from there AND found a great Yankee Candle on sale there too!

I know I have already featured my pups but this little lady is such a trouble maker.  We started putting her brother’s food up higher because she was sneaking it!  Well I heard something and thought she was just playing.  Then I heard a big crash and spill sound.  I ran to see what happened and on the floor was Ace’s food and Rosey ran grabbed a toy and hopped on the bed so she could look as cute as possible.  I am a sucker…. she is a mess!
