Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I did have a very nice day. I was surprised mid-afternoon Thursday by an ice cream cake:
Apparently my coworkers asked Bobby what kind of cake to get, and he said, “if it’s chocolate, dark chocolate; she doesn’t like normal cake, ice cream is better; something with whipped cream.” It is almost scary how well my husband knows me 😉 And my coworkers are the best.
I’m not going to keep being cryptic so here is my big news – I’m starting yoga teacher training this coming weekend and it’s going to go for the next 12 weeks (I have 2 weekends off). I’m not quitting my day job or anything, but I have been wanting to do this for a while and I’m so glad I’m getting the chance to now. (Back in California I did 2 weekend sessions of teacher training but did not complete the 200 hour training.) I can’t wait to share my yoga journey here for the next three months.
Since I’m going to be incredibly busy for the rest of the year, Bobby and I came down to NJ this weekend to spend time with my family and high school friends. We had an awesome time. Bobby and I helped out at the Quaker flea market yesterday (Saturday) by cooking hot dogs and hamburgers and taking down a bridge. I got a few goodies as well – some $.50 cent pillow shams, a dish, some fudge, handmade soap, an adorable laundry basket (whites and darks! but I will use it as his and hers because I don’t separate my colors – do you?), a lazy susan, some cool trays for food, and a bath set (lotions,etc…) … all for under $20 I believe.
I actually have a bunch of weekend link love links for you but I’ll post them tomorrow. In the meantime, I want to share three songs I am loving. For the first – I don’t usually like Diddy all the much, but I really like this song (mainly because of Skylar Grey’s voice – she’s not either of the girls in the video though).
Here is a Skylar Grey song:
And here is an Adele song that Bobby got me hooked on a few days ago. This girl is majorly talented, and her voice is like pure honey.

Whoo! Congrats on taking that step and committing to teacher training! It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing, too. I can’t wait to read about your adventures 🙂
@Alyse: I say, go for it! I can let you know more after I’ve done a few sessions – don’t hesitate to ask me anything.
Good for you! Teacher training is so much fun … oh, and actually teaching yoga is a lot of fun, too 🙂 Does your program teach any particular lineage?
@Jennie: It’s a combination of Vinyasa/Ashtanga (and maybe a little Forrest thrown in there as well).
Happy belated birthday my friend!
AND….SO HAPPY for you doing your yoga training!
That’s amazing. I know you won’t regret it for a second 🙂
Used to separate until I got married, and then CD taught me that it’s totally not necessary. Love him for that.
Love ice-cream cakes – is that from DQ? If so, those are my favorite!
So excited about your yoga teacher training Maggie. Like seriously excited. Would love to do that someday and so I can’t wait to hear all about your upcoming adventures! 🙂
@HEAB: It’s from Baskin Robbins I believe. I have never actually been to DQ! I’ve been to a “Cream King” which is the local burger/ice cream shop where I grew up 😉
Red clothes yes, colors-nope. 🙂
Maggie I’m so thrilled that you are continuing with your yoga training! I just completed my FIRST day of 500 hour training that I’ll be taking for the next year with a school up here. Phew. I’m excited that we are on this journey *together* in a way, and very much looking forward to reading your updates about it.
Lots of love and support!
@clare: That is awesome!! I can’t wait to read your updates as well. I wonder if 500 hour training will be in my future someday 🙂 Love and support right back at ya!
Congrats on starting yoga teacher training! It sounds like it’ll be amazing and I can’t wait to read more about it!
