Top things I love about Fall

there's nothing better in the morning than Sonoma hugs!!
or a little **cuddles** in the lap!!! Check out those sexy polka dot pj's ow ow! Gosh, its almost as if I live in my pj's.... okay, that's a lie too- I live in my workout gear and gym shoes :)

I managed to delete all my pictures from yesterday while in the process of cleaning out my computer files this morning..BAH!!!

Last night at Bar salsa was super fun! I hadn't been in ages and it felt so good to go back. If you like Latin music, I would highly recommend going to Bar Salsa on Monday/Wednesdays (I've never been on the weekends but I'm sure its fun as well). They have salsa lessons both nights from beginners to advanced, and social dancing afterwards with a mix of music from salsa, bachata, merengue, and kizomba. The atmosphere is very laid back and people are just there to dance and have a good time. I didn't make it to the lesson last night since I was subbing zumba but I went afterwards and danced my heart out. Love :)

G T. L. time! I did about 45 minutes on the treadmill and afterwards spent the majority of the time stretching out my calves- they were killing me!

post gym smoothie
  • almond milk/soy milk
  • frozen banana (makes the smoothie creamy so there's no need for ice!)
  • frozen blueberries, apples, blackberries, raspberries (1 cup total)
  • agave nectar (for sweetness)
  • scoop of chocolate protein powder (aid in muscle recovery)
Topped with muesli and dark choco chips-- so refreshing!!!

For lunch, I made some more pesce and sat down to catch up on some trash television aka Jersey Shore- don't JUDGE dooode, it ain't pretty!
