HAPPY VALENTINES DAY BLOG FRIENDS!
Maybe I am a slightly mushy, candy-obsessed, weirdo, but I personally love Valentines Day.
I loved it during the years when I didn’t have a valentine, and I love it even more now that I have the best one.
We don’t have big plans for the night, since we’re trying to save money, so we’ll probably just cook a nice dinner at home, open a bottle of wine and watch a movie. And that’s just fine with me.
Sometimes those are the best nights.
Last nights spinning class was a definite success!
Lauren and I had no idea what to expect of the class, and we were pretty shocked to see that it was a very small spinning class (there were only 6 bikes in the room).
The only other spin class that I’ve ever taken had about 20 bikes in the room, but I have to admit, I kind of liked the small class size!
It wasn’t intimidating at all, and our instructor was the entertainment of the night. It was almost like someone had told him..
The guy was relentless.
To give him a little credit, he did have an awesome playlist, and he knew it.
By the middle of the class, he was busting out full on dance moves to Jai Ho, while biking at the same time. I was impressed. Those kind of moves take talent.
It made the class so entertaining, and Lauren and I both agreed that we wanted to make spinning Wednesdays a weekly thing.
Who would have ever guessed that these two kiddos would still be best friends and run 2 half marathons and one marathon and take a spinning class together?
Nobody in our family, at least not the exercise part. I think they all knew that we would be best friends forever. Probably because I always looked up to Lauren as a kid.
My family jokes that the only two things I said when I was little were “Ouch” and “Where’s Lauren?” “Ouch” because I was a klutz (still true) and “Where’s Lauren?” because I always wanted to be doing whatever she was doing (also still true).
The only downside of spinning was my incredibly sore butt this morning, but that’s nothing that some padded shorts can’t fix. Any recommendations for some good ones?
Tell Me: What are your Valentines Day plans? It doesn’t matter if you have a valentine or not!
