hello fall

I couldn’t be happier that fall is here…boots, leggings, blazers, butternut squash, and the latest Starbucks beverage – salted caramel mocha. I actually had 4 of those things this past weekend (no butternut squash).

It was a great fall weekend. The weather was perfect for fall clothing and relaxing. Saturday I did back to back spin classes and learned a few new exercises. I’ve been wanting to get in new leg exercises to get them a little leaner. I’ll be testing those out this week for sure!

Saturday night was back to back birthday celebrations, which ended up being tons of fun! Jared and I started the night at our favorite wine bar, 694. This has been our third Saturday at 694 for their Food Truck A Go-Go event. We love going there and just found out the owner is extending it through the fall. It’s a good place to get Saturday evening started.

Next up was dinner at Bin 36 for Jen’s birthday, followed by a stop at Sable. After Jen’s celebration we headed north to Scott and Gina’s place for Gina’s birthday party. I didn’t take a single pic, because the iphone 3g camera is terrible. I’m thinking about getting a real camera, because the phone is just kind of annoying for blogging. Jared thinks I just need to upgrade, we’ll see.

Sunday was rainy so I stayed in sweats and went to Starbucks for a few hours with Jared. He had to prepare for a class that he’s teaching tomorrow, so I relaxed and finished my book – Last Night At Chateau Marmont. I know, such a girlie book, but I just love that kind so much!

Today was a pretty good Monday. I ended up going to spin this morning and body strength after work. Dinner was tuna, bok choy, and kohlrabi. The bok choy was spicy and kohlrabi was sweet,perfect combination! Next up is a little couch time and relaxing. We’ve got a big week of fun ahead of us since tomorrow is Jared’s birthday!!

Do you prefer to take pics with your phone or camera? What would you recommend to me for my blogging?

tier 2 celebration

I made it to tier 2 a couple weeks ago and finally decided how to reward myself! It’s the end of August and fall is fast approaching. Of course the cooler weather makes me sad, but I’m always ready for the wardrobe change. I didn’t need a new handbag and I actually am going to a spa in Napa next week, so I decided to get a pair of Michael Kors over-the-knee boots. I’ll be pairing these with lots of skirts, dresses, and leggings. I’m kind of excited if you couldn’t tell!

This is all very exciting, but now comes the hard part: reaching tier 3. It’s only 3 inches and the last time I measured it was only 2.5, but I have a feeling it’s going to get tough. I’m going to attempt to change up my workouts some. I’d like to get in one heavy weight workout once a week since I do a lot of body strength classes that focus on multiple reps with lighter weights. I also want to run a few miles for some extra cardio. I’m talking 2-3 miles, nothing crazy. I just need to change things up a little since I’m on the verge of getting bored.
