Viva La Yoga & Fun NJ Weekend

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 loveΒ 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.

  3. 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! πŸ™‚

    1. @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 πŸ˜‰

  4. 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!
