Things I’m Loving 2!

If you missed Things I’m Loving 1 you can find it here.

I sort of love this series. It gives me the chance to find awesome things on the internet or in the world that don’t make much sense to share on their own and make them into a cohesive post.

1.) First up, a birthday gift from my lovely friend Kate. I couldn’t believe it when I opened it. A gold kale leaf! It’s now become a permanent part of my key chain and I smile every time I open the door. Thank you Kate!

2.) I know we’re like 8 years behind the times but we just started the Dexter series and can’t get enough. It’s such a good show, I don’t know how I can root for a serial killer but I love him. Michael C. Hall is brilliant! If you haven’t already watched it, you should.

3.) This mini-workout. I found it on Pinterest the other day and did it after a run. It was fun to add a little something different to my usual routine.

4.) This book. Unbeknownst to me I downloaded it from the library before realizing it’s about 800 pages long. I’m about 50% through, finally, and although sometimes it can be slow I’m now very invested in these Hungarian characters.

5.) These Athleta yoga pants. I have been a big Lululemon fan for as long as I can remember and really love their stuff but the prices are a little high, especially on a teacher’s salary. Now that I’m teaching some community classes at Athleta, I thought I’d try out a pair. And then another. And another. I’m loving their pants. They fit great, don’t ride or bunch and are less expensive than Lulu. I also bought a pair for my sister for Christmas and she’s a huge fan for running. Worth a try, you can return after a workout if you hate them, no questions asked.

6.) The city by the bay. Tickets are booked! We’ll be home the first weekend in April. Let the countdown begin. Napa, Urban Flow, Gracias Madre, fog, friends and family here we come.

Enjoy and Exhale!

  1. Hooray for SF! I hope I can accompany you to Gracias Madre? 🙂 And – awesome you are running despite the cold weather. I remember many a snowy, freezing run when I lived in DC; I always felt so hard core. And rather than ‘freezing’ I liked to think of it as ‘refreshing.’ See you soonish!

  2. I’m living in the East Bay area and love it here. I bet you’re excited to come home!
    I am also a new fan of Athleta gear. Their Polartec line is so comfortable and great for cold weather!

    • I grew up in the east bay, it’s such a great place to live. SO excited to head back. I’m glad I’m not the only one liking Athleta. I’m really happy with their stuff. Have you tried any of their tops? I’ve yet to but wonder if they’re good.
