Hi and I am praying hard for all of my Florida readers and everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma, especially those in the Caribbean Islands.
It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend in Charlotte, which was so eerie knowing about the impending arrival of Irma in Florida and all the rain and wind that we will experience in the next few days as Irma moves up into the south. Y’all stay safe. <3
Here are a few photos from the weekend…
5 on Friday. Ridiculously gorgeous weather for it.
I arrived home at 8:30 p.m. on Friday after teaching a hot yoga class followed by a two-hour backhanding workshop. Tanner sent me upstairs where I found my pajamas and slippers laid out on the bed. (FYI! I did order Ugg Ansley Slippers last week and they didn’t fit. My heel slipped out of the right slipper – this happens to me a lot with slip on shoes. I think I might try one that slips on instead.)
He also had dinner delivered from Thai Orchid via Postmates. I loved that he did the ordering because he got some differing things. We had a delicious crispy roasted duck that came with onions, carrots, mushrooms, baby corn and cashews in a roasted chili sauce. Also steamed dumplings and chicken satay.
I finished it all off with dark chocolate filled with almond butter and chamomile tea. I had to gear up for a BUSY Saturday!

My day kicked off teaching Y2 Strength at 8:15 a.m. and then I showered and headed over to Sugar Creek Brewing to teach a donation class for Hurricane Harvey Relief. Katie Loveluck organized the event and I was honored to lead the class!

We raised over $2,300! It was a great morning and so wonderful to see the community come together in support of others.
I ran home to eat lunch before going back to the studio to teach a two-hour arm balancing workshop. It was a lot of fun!
Tanner and I went over to his brother and sister in law’s for dinner where we enjoyed another delicious Thai Orchid dinner. Totally unplanned as his brother did the dinner ordering but I will never complain about Thai food two nights in a row! It was delicious! We had spring rolls, two types of curry and pad see ew.
Sullie and I were up early on Sunday morning to go pick up my mom from the airport. She is here visiting for the week!
I had to go back to the studio after picking her up to teach one more workshop as part of my three-part weekend series. Today was all about inversions and we worked on tons of drills and prep for headstands, forearm balance and handstands.
I was home shortly before 1 p.m. I ate lunch and baked a maple apple spice bundt cake. After the cake came out of the oven my mom and I took the girls for a long walk.
Our day concluded at the Greek Festival. We checked out the church (beautiful) and some of the shops before having dinner.
We both had the fish and it was served with a Greek salad, a stuffed grape leaf, savory phyllo pastries and a roll. We both got Greek pastries to share. So good.
And that’s all I have for you. Heading off to bed to read Truly, Madly, Guilty. I’m about halfway done with it and wondering WHEN I’m finally going to figure out what happened at that barbecue!
