Bikram, birthdays and basil cleaning spray

in feel good friday

Britt says that Mrs. Meyers has the best non-toxic all purpose spray cleaner. The basil kind smells AMAZING. We’re trying to switch to more eco/health friendly cleaning supplies. Do you have any favorites?

Last Sunday we enjoyed fresh lemonade from a neighborhood kid. I agree with Eric. It’s practically a crime to not stop at a lemonade stand. 

Turns out a Volvo is celebrating their 30th birthday this month too. Maybe that means I need one of those fancy shmancy Volvos. Mmmm, yes. It must mean that.

I skipped the Super Bowl last weekend (no surprise) in exchange for a Bikram yoga class. It was exactly what my body needed so I signed up for a whole month of classes. Any yogis out there? A few things you should know to not injure yourself. 

I’m reading through 1 and 2 Peter this winter/spring. A chapter each week for the next 10ish weeks. I’m loving this online study about suffering and trials.

We are rejoicing with this family because, after a year in Uganda trying to adopt, they will finally be coming home with their babies.

I’m celebrating my birthday tomorrow night at a hotel downtown with 11 fun gals, lots of pink, glitter, cake pops and dancing. Here’s a little playlist to get in the mood.

Also, sidenote, did you know that Suze Orman was a waitress at 30? Life is just beginning folks. And on that note, if you’ll excuse me, I have some party prep and a pedi to get accomplished before tomorrow.

Happy weekend! Party, party!

Becca- I have tried vinegar but I hate the smell! I wish I lived closer so I could steal your Mrs. Meyers April- Oh my, you motivate me girl! I bet it's totally fine to practice everyday if you work up to it. And, I bet your body is lookin' rockin for you 30th. :) Allison-I did find the perfect sparkly dress! Cheers to 30. Can't wait for yours to arrive too.

Happy early 30th Lesley! I hope it's absolutely amazing! I'm turning 30 too this year (Apr.6) and, like you, am feeling really excited about it. Personally, I think the best is yet to come. I also see that you're doing Bikram! I signed up recently to do a 60-day Bikram challenge with a local studio here. I'm 31 days in, completely addicted and have signed on as a member! I know it can be hard to go with kids (and with everything you guys have on your plate right now), but if you can manage to go every day - the results are incredible. Physically and mentally - I like to use my final savasana to pray. :) Hoping you have an awesome birthday weekend!

Happy Birthday! On the cleaning product front, I can't stand the way Mrs Meyers products smell. I ended up giving away my stash for free on Craigslist! I usually just clean with baking soda and white vinegar (and my husband can't stand the way that smells but I'm the one cleaning so I win).
