This weekend left me with such a full heart... it was my birthday on Sunday, and my sweet hubby really spoiled me! Friday night started with dinner and a bit of shopping.
There is something about Scottsdale at night that is so fun - all of the lights make it feel very resort-y, and it almost feels like vacation with the warm weather!
Saturday morning I met my friend Jennifer for a barre class at the DC Village Health Club. Y'all - it was much tougher than I thought it would be... not only was I terrible, but I was confused! I can tell by my muscles (that are so sore) that I certainly got my workout on... and the good news is that I can only improve (really, there is no possible way that I could be worse).
After the barre class, we relaxed a bit then headed to a spin class. It was a really great time, and I'm glad we ended our workout with it! The health club facilities were absolutely beautiful, and I'm slowly working on John to joining! ;)
Saturday evening, John and I had reservations at The Melting Pot. We have been going there on my birthday for the last few years, and it is always such a yummy yearly treat... I still can't decide if the cheese or chocolate fondue is my favorite part - but I'm going to have to go with cheese!
Speaking of fondue, did you know it's not only a style of serving food? I discovered that at my barre class earlier that morning (like I said, it's only up from here!).
Creme Brulee fondue!
On Sunday it was completely necessary to get out of the house and get my muscles moving again. We went on little trail walk with Scout, and it was absolutely beautiful outside.
There is something so cool about the Arizona winter - you can wear shorts and not be too cold; or, you can wear pants and a jacket and not be too hot... basically, it's pretty perfect!
Force cuddles for the birthday girl with Scout... she's loving it, I swear.
The high on Sunday was 79, so we made sure to spend some time by the pool... I've been feeling a bit pale, and am looking forward to getting back a little bit of color! John did some swimming... while I did some watching!
The evening was perfectly ended with some birthday Sprinkles cupcakes and Downton Abbey (I did suggest we watch the Miss Universe pageant, but John wasn't into the idea... shocking, I know!).
His, her (and her and her) and pup cupcakes!!
Calories don't count on birthdays, right?! (just say you agree!)
