June bug

June 30, 2016
We played the weekend celebrating Kate, but we had some other lovebirds to celebrate this month too. Kate and Garrett got married in East Lansing the first weekend in June. It was amazing to escape the heat of Tucson, for which Fitz got his own pool, to head home to the Mitten for a weekend.

We loved seeing Cody's Shipman friends, and celebrating with them. Kate looked beautiful, and cried her happy tears to be marrying her Garrett. It was magic. 

We enjoyed the rest of the month doing summer things, grilling, spending time with friends, biking/barre3-ing. We celebrated Kate's bridal shower, and I received the best gift in the form of pomegranate Jelly Bellies from my girl Amanda. LIFE MADE. 

Chelsea and I are currently loving the crazy pant trend that is in right now. 


Kate's Clique

June 13, 2016
We started June off strong with Kate's Bachelorette in Scottsdale. In true Kate fashion, her bachelorette party was all about the balance. We drove up Friday morning to take a barre3 class in Scottsdale with our awesome instructor Jessica! We met Kate's mom up there, and had a blast taking class from a different studio. It's always inspiring to take class from someone new!

After class, we did some shopping at Nordstrom and all had luck at their shoe sale. MacKenna and I snuck off to decorate our hotel room for the weekend, and Kate showed up a little later with Vanita. 

That night, we had a drink in the bar at our hotel, The Camby and went to dinner at True Food Kitchen which is officially my favorite restaurant ever. I felt good ordering anything off the menu, and it was all delicious. 

Saturday morning we got up early to grab coffee before heading to Party on a Bike at the Madison Improvement Club. It was legit. Like, too legit to quit. And the most fun I've had working out since finding barre3. I'm already plotting my return. 

We spent the day relaxing, laying by the pool, eating at True Food, AGAIN, and then getting ready for our night out! MacKenna, being the true amazing visionary she is had the foresight to order flower crowns for us to wear out, and it was the most brilliant ever. We had so much fun with them, and we got a ton of compliments. 

We went out to dinner at the Henry, and then out on the town. Overall, I think I can safely say we all had a lot of fun, and a lot of laughs. Happy Bachelorette Kate, we love you more than we can ever show you!


May-be I should update!

June 3, 2016
Par the course, I've been bad with updates. SO, we are going to catch up in a few posts. Starting with MAY!

Emily came down from Chicago for a visit, which pretty much consisted of shopping, playing with Pax and Fitz, and barre3. I was super stoked that she was finally able to meet Kate, so my favorite blonde brides-to-be could be together!

Fitz really enjoyed the weather before it started getting too hot. We had some good days at the park, rolling in the clover and coating ourselves in morning dew!

Barre3 Tucson turned 2 years old this month! We celebrated with free classes all day, with snacks and  a lift and sip class in the evening. I cannot say enough about how grateful I am for this beautiful community and the wonderful people it has brought into my life!

Cody went out of town for a bike race, so my friend Ashley and I had a lady weekend, which ended up being a huge blessing as she took a job in San Diego and will be moving soon. We went out to dinner on Saturday night at 47 Scott, one of our favorite Tucson spots, shared some wine and laughs and went to bed early. Sunday we got up to bike downtown again for yoga with our mutual favorite instructor, Stefani Lindsay at Yoga Oasis. Afterward, we grabbed coffee and broke up our bike ride back to the house by stopping at Time Market for a hummus plate. She is an amazing friend and woman, and I always walk away from time together feeling inspired. We kept talking about how much fun we had, and how we should do it more (although I think the magic comes from breaking out of our routine). 

I worked Memorial Day at work and was able to introduce my 4NE coworkers to fruit pizza, America edition. I think my friends from home would approve. It wasn't a bad shift, and we had a lot of fun at our potluck!
