So Many Different Choices

Ah, Sunday.  The most ambiguous day of the week.  I love you and I dread you at the same time.

What to share?

There are just so many different choices.

I mean, we got to celebrate the first day of spring in a misty-haze, the top came off of le jardin (when the light is better, I’ll show you the madness that are our tomato sprouts…they’re kind of epic), I performed some serious e-mail admin and had the most productive yoga sesh of my life.

I don’t want to say that Downward Dog is my favorite pose.

But Downward Dog is my favorite pose.

There…I said it.

Speaking of yoga, I was in the middle of a wardrobe-purge this morning and discovered that I have four pairs of yoga pants.  And here I was, thinking that I only had two!  Who knew?

Did I mention that on the “high” setting, my heated blanket basically turns into a full-body hot pack?  Because there’s that too.  Consider that the discovery of the century.  I only wish that I would have known this in July.

Yes, I realize this means I will be the only Minnesotan (the only North American, really) using a heated blanket in the middle of the summer.  It’s definitely a case of function over fashion.

Back to the point.

What really did it for me today, was when I was paying for my groceries at ALDI, and the cashier informed me that she thought I looked like Kate Middleton to the point where she did a double take when I walked in the store.

Yes, I think we’re style-soulmates and I would like all of the clothes in her closet, but I’ve never really felt that we could pass for sisters.


Hello, reality.

Regardless, that one is definitely going in the Lifetime Achievement column.

So, what I didn’t tell you all over the past few days, is that Marcus has been in Vegas since Wednesday morning.  Safety first and all that.

Translation: My life has been one colossal ladies’ night.  In action?

  • I had sushi with Galina.
  • Went to a wine and homemade pizza-fueled sleepover that Tiffany organized (her husband was with Marcus).
  • Brunched with Eli.
  • Had a major beat-down catch-up with Jillian.
  • Went to Santorini’s in Eden Prairie for a lovely blogger brunch meet-up with Stephanie, Anne (and sister!) and Jen.  LOVED it.

I spent an AMAZING weekend with some fabulous women.

And now I feel like I need a weekend to recover from the weekend.  It’s the only way to live, really.

Do you have a celebrity doppelganger?

Are you a yoga devotee?

Going to a studio/group-practice isn’t really my scene, but I love that I can roll out a mat, flip on some ExerciseTV via Comcast On Demand and make things happen.
