Eat & Breathe Garden

Well hello there! I hope you have had a nice hump day.

I was extremely lazy until about four o'clock when I finally went and got a new cord for my phone.  I had mangled my last one so much that it finally stopped working this week.  Every time I tried to plug it into my computer a warning would pop up saying one of my usb ports was stealing too much energy from the computer and was thus disabled, which was frustrating.  Luckily RadioShack has a year warranty for an extra $2, which I am very grateful I decided to invest in. So, I got a brand new cord this afternoon.  I also stopped by the Clinique counter on the CSU campus to pick up some makeup I was running out of. After that, I got some matzo and hummus from Trader Joe's because some of my mom's drummers ate all of mine yesterday :). I want to try and make matzo brei sometime this week (with eggs and onions).

Yesterday I had a goofy time at the gym with Acacia.  It was her abs day, not her leg day so she quickly showed me how to squat with a weighted bar, which was easy enough, we moved onto abs, and then we spent about 15 minutes reminiscing on our old gymnastics abilities and doing hap-hazard tricks in an open yoga studio.  So fun! :) Tomorrow is leg and booty day! Time to kick my own butt… literally!

Collages

I hope you are having a nice Monday.  I have had a pretty chill day.  I went to two hours of yoga this morning.  My mom has started to teach her yoga classes out on the lawn in the middle of beautiful tree grove… so enjoyable.  I used to be so resistant to yoga because my mom always pestered me to come take her classes.  I already take her dance classes and I associated yoga with being stuck in uncomfortable positions for far too long.  I have been proven wrong!  I have been going consistently for the last month and it has gotten so much easier and therefore more fun! I feel so great afterwards.  I was so tired in the afternoon but forced myself to go to the gym for an hour.  I didn't push myself too much and have taken it easy the rest of the day. It is so nice to have the time to just take care of my body.  I am so grateful.

Tomorrow I am helping our neighbor with some chores she can't get done alone in the morning and then I'm off to the gym again to have Acacia teach me how to do proper weighted squats.  A couple weeks ago she taught me how to do sitting squats to get me used to sticking my booty out when I lift.  I'm excited to get the full tutorial tomorrow.  I'll let you know how it goes ;) Big booties ahoy!

Here are some collages: a mishmash of lovely things, as collages should be.

Collabo

Hello lovelies!

I hope you're having a lovely Easter if you're into that sort of thing ;).  I had a nice morning with my mom and brother at Pancakes for Peace, an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast benefit for the local Peace and Justice center.

These photos were taken Saturday morning by my new friend and photog buddy, Sean Peeler.  I went to high school with him and he recently approached me about doing a collaboration for the blog.  I was really impressed with his portfolio and excited to see what we could create together.  'Twas fun!

Table Mountain Passover

I spent Monday with my friend Acacia, first at table table mountain with Athena and Jason, and later at her dad's house for a wonderful passover.  I grew up with Acacia and our dads are both Brooklyn Jews.  It's more than nice to be able to take part in something my ancestors took part in for thousands of years.  There's a lot to be said for traditions.

The Zeuses Unite!

My friend Jenelle and I finally united our dogs, both named Zeus.  We went for a beautiful sunset stroll in Upper Park on Friday and confused the crap out of the dogs when we called them.  They seemed to like each other :)









I hope you all had a great weekend!
