Friday the 13th Favorites

By a show of hands, who is crazy obsessed with the fact that we've reclaimed our evening daylight hours? 

Drivers seem happier, more people are out running or cycling, there's less stress in the commute even if the difference in actual time it takes to drive home is marginal. It's a shift in frame of mind. 

To drive home in daylight inspires me to do something when I get home rather than the usual retire-to-my-bedroom move I've adapted to throughout the winter.

Spring!

I may be speaking too soon since there's only rain in the forecast this weekend, but look at this delightful photo I took when leaving work at 5pm yesterday. Spring has sprung!  I know that "spring" comes with rain, especially in the Pacific Northwest, but while we have these amazing days I'm probably going to brag about it! 


Sisters!

Go here to see these silly photos of my golden sisters opening up the treats they got from Chewy.com

Here's a sample:



Pound Workout!

Have you guys ever heard of this? It's a 45-minute class of drumming while doing other athletic moves (squats, lunges, pilates-style ab movements) to some awesome music. Here's the example of what it is, but imagine it with a crazy-cool playlist,  a high-energy instructor and a dance club environment at PulsePDX where I take my class. You forget that you are working out.


What are you guys up to this weekend? What are some of your favorites that you can share with us?

I hope you're linking up with Amanda!

That picture is just gorgeous! All we have had here the last two weeks is dreary rainy days. I am so sick of the rain and the horrible traffic that comes with it. I am happy that it is still light outside when I leave the office though!

Pound work outs sound fun! Have a great weekend!
