Yay — Friday is here! It’s been a busy week and I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend. I’m going to a workout tomorrow morning, but then probably collapsing on the couch for most of the day.

When she asked if I would be a part of her… View Post

Saturday I had to teach in the morning, then I stayed and took a pretty intense workout at Sweat. Afterwards, I met Neil at a place called Woodie’s Flat so I could try out this creation. It was decent, but I don’t know that I would go there again. Definitely good to experience two of my favorite things combined into one.
