Weekend Happenings!

This weekend was great fun and quite productive! Aren't those the best kind?!

Friday started off at a spin class with my friend Jennifer at RPM Spin in Scottsdale... it was a great workout, and man oh man, I am so uncoordinated with it comes spinning and dancing at the same time - I'm sure it was hysterical to watch, but I had a good workout and a good time (...however, I still refuse to do zumba - am I alone on this?!).

After spin, John took me out for sushi, and you better believe I indulged.  We had a wonderful dinner outside while enjoying the warm evening.


Saturday, I worked on a little up-cycle project and I am quite happy with how it turned out... thrift store score, and DIY coming soon!


On Sunday John and I met Jennifer and her hubby, Paul, for a mountain bike ride.  We were riding for a while, but the terrain was beautiful and the sun was shining - John and I even got sun burned (lesson learned...).


While we were riding, we came across a rattlesnake in the middle of the trail! It was my first time seeing a wild rattlesnake, and it was a good reminder to keep an eye out.


The weekend ended with a little Downton Abbey (and nursing my sore and sunburned body... ahh!!).

What were you up to this weekend?!

  7. It sounds like such a good weekend- I can't wait to see what you're doing with the lamps! So scary about the rattlesnake! Do you guys have something with you in case you see them or do you just turn back the other way??

  11. Wait. Spinning and dancing at the same time? I thought spin classes were biking classes?? Also, Zumba is the best. You really need to try it because it is sooo fun! :)

  19. Wait, so you dance while on a bike?? Can't wait to see your up-cycled lamps because I'm looking for some but man, are they expensive!

  20. Oh my!!!! That rattlesnake!!! Yikes!! P.S. Spinning AND dancing at the same time...I don't even understand that statement. Needless to say, I'd look like a wild woman too!

  21. I have friends who are super into Zumba but yeah...the closest to it I'll get is on a Kinect workout. The classes themselves just don't appeal to me.
    Can't wait to see your lamps!
