Good news…the cake was a success! And I think for the first time ever, the entire cake got eaten, which made me so very happy.
I really wish I had grabbed my camera to take a picture of it once it was sliced, but judging by all of your birthday requests, it looks like I may have to make that bad boy more than once.
The funny part about it was that our whole softball team was sat on the bleachers after the game (which we lost, boo) at about 9:30pm and ate it there. A little different, right? But super fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed my piece, but I think I’m now peanut buttered OUT for a little while. Whew.
First thing this morning, I pulled out the yoga mat and got in a really great workout.
I was originally planning on doing a yoga DVD, but I was really in the mood for some core, glute, and hip work so I flipped on our Sportskool channel on tv and was lucky enough to come across a Core Yoga Pilates video.
The video was 58 minutes long, and I totally loved it. It was very low impact and I never broke a sweat (partially because our windows were open and the mornings around here are absolutely awesome), but I could really feel the burn. Very similar to the Rock Bottom class I took a few times. I loved the change of pace, and I think I’ll probably be adding this workout into the weekly rotation.
Post-workout, it was breakfast tiiiiime.
That little chill in the air this morning was enough to prompt me to make a hot pot of coffee. When I’m drinking coffee at home, I’ve realized I actually enjoy it hot more than iced, but if I’m getting it out, I like iced better. That weird?
For breakfast, I went with a bowl of Mixed Berry French Toast Oatmeal.
Filled with lots and lots of strawberries and blueberries, and topped with some Love Grown Foods granola.
I don’t know…first the pumpkin spice Hershey kisses, now the comforting, hot breakfast? I think I may be starting to crave some fall-like weather more than I thought.
Question for the Morning:
What’s your ideal weather? Hot? Cold?
I’m actually loving it right now – I like mid-high 70’s or 80 during the day with cooler evening temps in the 50’s. Perfect for snuggling.
