Saturday I got up early and went to an 8:30 Body Pump class - WOO. We did a lot of balancing exercises and LOTS of legs. I was sweating up a storm! I left class around 9:20 to head over to the 9:15 spin class! I then took that class until 10:15. GREAT morning! HRM said: 703 calories in 1 hour and 37 minutes; 21 fat-burning minutes 76 fitness minutes, average HR 143 and max HR 179. After class I headed home, picked up Austin, picked up cupcakes, brought cookies to my neighbor, got ready and headed to Eclipse de Luna for Shana's 3 p.m. Baby Sprinkle! So good to see her, visit with her mother-in-law, see my buddies and get to know Shana's friends better. Great turn out, great friends, great time! After the sprinkle I ran by Gil's alterations for a dress, back home to get Austin and pet the puppers then over to Buckhead Diner for dinner with Andy, Monica, Nicole and David, before drinks at Fado Irish Pub. We had so much fun catching up with Andy/Mon (as usual!) and getting to know Nicole & David better. I loved being able to sit outside - they have such a nice rooftop bar with lots of heat lamps - PERFECT. Around midnight they headed home and we headed to East Andrews to meet Matt, which turned into a cab ride to The Ivy and a walk to Johnny's Hideaway. WOO! Busy, busy day and night but SO much fun!! Sadly, my camera died so no photos from anything after the sprinkle. BOO. But here are some from the sprinkle!
me and the lady of the hour!
Brittany at Cocktail Cupcakes did our cupcakes again! I forgot to get a shot when the trays were full - oopsie!
I will say this weekend I also finished two books - the audio book and print book I was reading! The audio book was finished SO quickly due to the crap weather last week which doubled my commute and therefore time spent listening. I REALLY liked it though. It was James Patterson's Postcard Killers. The book was about couples who were going missing all across Europe - honeymooners, those on their anniversary, etc. The story is told from the perspective of a NYC detective whose daughter was murdered, a Swedish reporter who was chosen by the killers to receive postcards (photos of the murder scenes) and from the killers themselves. It was fast-paced, engaging and surprising - I like the layers and suspense, and wouldn't have changed anything. Well, it could have been less graphic... but other than that I enjoyed it! While I don't normally go for "mysteries" who tell you who the killers are relatively upfront, I did enjoy them figuring out how to catch the killers. I'd give it a 4 out of 5. I'll review the print book tomorrow! :)
Q: How was your weekend? Have good weather? It was BEAUTIFUL here. Like we drove around, ran extra errands, etc. just to be outside more!!
Q: Do you have an organization you enjoy volunteering with? I love volunteering with animals, and also with the Special Olympics and Senior Connections! I also like supporting St. Jude and American Cancer Society.
