Hi guys! I hope you had a great Monday! Whatever you do, don’t miss the end of this post because I have partnered with friend and fellow Charlottean Erin McDermott on an awesome jewelry giveaway and a discount code that’s sure to make your holiday shopping a breeze!
But first…a few weekend highlights!
My weekend was yoga, yoga and more yoga. Tanner had a conference so I subbed a couple of his classes along with teaching my own for a total of 5 between Friday and Sunday. Classes were so packed on Saturday morning and I had 92 freaking yogis in my 11:15 a.m. and they brought all the best energy with them. It was incredible.
I was more than ready for lunch after teaching two classes on Saturday morning and meeting Virginia for a run. You have to trust me on this wrap combo, it’s my new favorite and I ate it three days in a row last week.
Cedar’s spinach wrap with hummus, avocado, sliced hardboiled egg, pepper jack cheese and greens. The egg + hummus + avocado combo is so, so good.
After lunch I headed back to the studio for a prenatal massage with our lead therapist, Amanda. Y’all, I haven’t had a massage in over four months because I was iffy on getting one in the first trimester (plus, I didn’t want to tell our staff that I was expecting) and man did I need this one.
I got a side-lying massage and got to snuggle that big pillow and it was life changing. I actually liked being on my side more than my belly because I always get so congested and puffy when I’m face-down like that.
I texted Tanner after and told him it was the best thing that had happened to me since I was pregnant. Haha.
And then I went to Nordstrom and treated myself to a new pair of Uggs. Say what you will about them but nothing beats Uggs for to/from the studio and errands, especially when you’re cold natured.
With everything I have going on this week, I thought it best for my sanity to go ahead and do all of my Thanksgiving grocery shopping on Saturday. (Know your limitations.) Big tip: Whole Foods is offering big discounts on turkeys with Amazon Prime coupons. Download it on your phone and scan at checkout!
Needless to say, I did nothing but veg around the house on Saturday night.
As I was getting ready for bed on Saturday, I told myself I’d finally get that bagel I’d been craving for breakfast on Sunday. I have had bagels on my mind for a few weeks now. I don’t really love getting dressed and leaving the house on Sunday mornings (well, not sure if you can call what I did “dressed” but you know…) but the bagel run was worth it. I went to Poppy’s and got a honey wheat bagel with veggie cream cheese. I brought it home and had it with an egg and a grapefruit.
And then I baked four loaves of sourdough while I worked on the computer. My loaves turned out so well this time and I had so much fun playing sourdough fairy and dropping them off to friends later that afternoon after teaching yoga. (Two fellow preggos and BFF Dorie.)
My day ended with a quick stop by Trader Joe’s before coming home to relax and make dinner.
ERIN MCDERMOTT JEWELRY GIVEAWAY
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I’ve had a longstanding relationship with Erin McDermott. You can read her story in the first post I wrote about her back in 2012. She’s since had two beautiful baby girls and continues to grow her jewelry business and is always creating something new and lovely.
And she’s a NYC marathon finisher! 🙂

- This is a new piece that’s not on Erin’s site yet but I’m sure if you email her and PBR special request it, she’ll hook you up. It’s really long and you can loop and layer it however you like. It’s definitely a little blingy and perfect for evening.
