Week In Review

I feel like my life has not been that exciting lately. Pretty much going through the motions of each day the last couple of weeks. This week though was many things all packed in one. It was full of craziness as well as exhausting, emotional and completely draining! It is now 10:45pm on Sunday night and I am done, yet I felt like a lot was accomplished. Here is my attempt to elaborate on the good things that happened to me this week.

-Ran the SLC Half Marathon on Saturday morning and did great. Congrats to Cristin Jacketta, Andrea M, Melissa, Cari, Jenn, Ashley, Susannah, Chelsea, Megan, Patti, Emily,Jen D and all those that were on the Life Time team that did so well and finished successfully!

-The Sun came out on Monday
-Talking to the T-Mobile customer service rep on they have good customer service. I learned all about her life and she pretty much learned about my life. Megan from made me actually have a better day! My stupid razor phone broke and you made everything better by being so nice. Good CS goes a long way! Its crazy how you vent to people when you are having a bad thanks for letting me vent to you my T-Mobile friend :)
-50 people in my Fusion class made me feel so happy!
-Michelle Funk, she is such a bright face to see and uplifted me today at church
-The Book of Mormon
-My Mom made this week amazing
-Brother Moyer
-I spent a few nights over at Amanda my sisters house. It is always a party over there. Listening to Sydney and Amanda talk is quite entertaining. I couldn't get enough. Amanda's homemade weight watchers cake. Everything about hanging out at Amandas this week made me feel good. I needed to spend time with my family.
-Savannah holding my hand while we watched "The Seeker" Friday night.
-Ethan sitting by me today while he played his Nintendo DS this afternoon
-Emily from work...just an amazing person
-Cycle always
-Watching an episode of Ellen Degeneres when she posed as a facialist in Orlando last month. Laughing so hard, tears were rolling down my face.
-Stacey and Travis, members that come to every class I teach. I truly love these people with all my heart
-My uplifting Group Fitness family. We had a looong meeting on Saturday afternoon but they are always there to make me smile. They are an amazing bunch!
-Carlie is hanging in there another week on American Idol. She was not even in the bottom three last week. PHEW!
-Brothers and Sisters came back on Sunday night tv.
-Fudruckers with Jeff, Sherry and My Parents Friday night...a great ending to a horrible day! I don't even like Fudruckers but I didn't care, I was with my two sets of parents
-A text from JW, dinner on Thurs :)

Well that is all I can think of tonight. I hope everyone had a fabulous week. Just remember to keep those you love close to you and never let those friendships go in your life you cherish most. I have a few old friends on my mind and I hope they know how much I love them. For now thats all FOLKS!! Next week is new, make it even better than last week!

A WEEKEND OF FUN! Studio Soiree and St. George

Ok so I am about to blog about one of the funnest weekends I have experienced in a LOOOONG time. Before you scroll down and look at my pictures let me tell you about these pictures before you judge me right away. I went down to Studio Soiree with my friends on Friday night for a girlfriends bachelorette party. Now let me tell you a little about Studio Soiree. I recommend this place to any woman. It is a fitness pole dancing class. I don't know if any of you have heard about these classes but they have done a episode on Oprah about fitness pole dancing. I figured if Oprah can do it, I can. My friend from work came in one day and was very excited about these classes she has been attending on a weekly basis. At first I was a little reluctant to believe that this was something that I should be doing. I figured I would go out on a limb after she explained the idea of the class and go with my friends on Friday night. We got there and the studio was so cute and I was excited once I saw the studios. I didn't have the feeling that I needed to leave right away. It was very much a FITNESS class. The idea is to just feel more like a woman. It was all I needed to let go a little bit and have some fun girl time. So yes, we danced on a pole. Let me just tell you it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I did pretty good if I must say so myself. Your core has to be incredibly strong. The instructors teach you the Firemans spin and the Tinkerbell spin. I was very good at the Tinkerbell spin. We turned upside down and we also had competitions to see who could climb up the pole and touch the ceiling first. Heidi and I tied for the best pole climbers. For the first time in my life I felt a little sexy :). I ran from pole to pole turning as fast as possible and laughed my guts out! In the end my friend Melissa and I TRIED to put our sexy on and do a dance for the group...all in good taste I promise! I am a good girl. I really do recommend this class to anybody!!! It will make you feel at ease in your own skin. No men ALLOWED!Perfect for a girls night out. You walk out feeling two inches taller from letting all your stress leave your body. I had so much fun with my friends. I will tell you, in the end the instructor teaches you all how to give a lap dance. It was hilarious. I am not married, but when I am my husband better be prepared for the best lap dance of his life. I hope he has never had one though before me..HA! Although I was the designated driver for the night, it was one of the funnest times I have had in a long time. Melissa congrats on your upcoming wedding! I am so excited for you. I love you so much. Any woman out there that is interested in this class the studio is in Sugarhouse and it is called Studio Soiree. I am going to take my sisters and my mom next time! Get ready you guys! Here are some pics of the night!

I also got home from St. George, I left early Saturday morning. I was so great to be with my family. I took a long bike ride this morning through Snow Canyon and It was so refreshing. I am so grateful for the things that I have and I am especially grateful for my family. It was so much fun taking a run with my mom and Amelia yesterday. It has been awhile since I have had sister and mom time. I love Allison and Cameron so much, thanks for keeping me company today on the long drive home. Cameron was a sport to sit in the back seat and play with Mason. I am so grateful that I could listen to conference and know that the gospel is everything to my life. My testimony is so strong. St. George thank you for delivering the 80 degree weather this was all I needed!
