Mid January Check In

A this and that sort of update.

First up, I am doing a January yoga challenge, with Yoga with Adriene. I found the YouTube channel in November and really enjoyed the videos, then when the challenged was announced I immediately committed myself to it. I even got my mom on board. It’s been nice to do something that I can do at home, usually in the mornings before work, and I have seen a lot of yoga improvement. I also found a yoga studio near my work that I really like and I am doing yoga there a few times a week after work. Hopefully when the weather starts to warm up and I do more activities outside I still make time for some yoga, because it’s been amazing.

Second, my birthday was last weekend and I got a bunch of friends to go to the Russian bathhouse with me. I have wanted to go for a while but was always scared, so I am glad we all committed to going last Saturday. It lived up to all the weird and amazing expectations I had, and it won’t be the last time I go there. It’s BYOB too, which is fun, but could also be a bad combination with all of the saunas, hah. But I think all my friends had fun. I know Eric had a GREAT time, and even got a eucalyptus beating.


Random birthday breakfast photo, I requested we go get donuts (and bagels and tea).


Third, we bought random tickets to Milan yesterday because of this crazy deal Emirates Air is having. $800 for 2 roundtrip tickets, whaaaat?!?! Figured I would pass this along to any local people that can easily fly out of JFK. It ends in 2 days so jump on it, CLICK HERE, also I have no affiliation with any of this just wanted to pass on this crazy deal. Of course Eric planned our trip while a bike race is going on.

Lastly, planning a wedding kind of sucks and isn’t as fun as I thought. There are so many people and dates to deal with and you start to question your friendship with people because you NEED to get your guest list down, and ugh, I just want to have a good time. I think I made a breakthrough today with finding at least one venue that MIGHT work, still need to go check it out in person though.

    Donuts and bagels are the perfect birthday breakfast! Also, love the cat pants. And love Yoga with Adrienne. I stumbled on her YouTube videos awhile back, and now they’re my go-to when I can’t get to class.

    Happy birthday! That deal is awesome. The last time I got a deal like that was in 2004!

    And the only time I went to a bathhouse was in Budapest. It was a place where everyone walks around nude or basically nude. It was an interesting experience, especially since no one spoke english.

    Happy birthday! I am starting to do yoga again too and I agree – it’s pretty great and I always forget about how great it is!
