Randolph Street Market
Alaina and I were asked to get to Randolph Street Market early tomorrow morning to select our editor's picks at the market and we're being given Polaroid cameras to snap photos of our favorite items. Fun! The whole being an editor thing is still a little weird to me. I love it but can't believe how much my life has changed.
I finished my two week intro at River North CrossFit and have signed up for my first month. I would have committed to a year but am not sure what area of Chicago I'll be in, so I need to wait on that one. I have done yoga, barre, boxing, spinning, running, rowing etc and nothing has compared to CrossFit. I am hooked. This video will give you a basic idea of what CrossFit is. It looks so much more terrifying than it actually is, although those damn box jumps still freak me out. I am convinced that I'll miss the box and break my face, leg, or something else that I need.
Let's remember that I finished that first workout last in my group two weeks ago. 500 meters of rowing, 40 squats, 10 pull ups, 20 sit ups, 10 push ups, and 5 burpees. Just five workouts later and I took over a minute off of my time. And I didn't finish last. Winning!
The Everygirl + BHLDN
Here's a little peek at today's feature on our BHLDN event. Guess who wrote the copy for today's feature? Thank you to Alaina for pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone. I may be a blogger but I do not fancy myself a writer. Makes me all kinds of nervous.
And speaking of The Everygirl, I am loving today's This or That: East v. West Coast.
...And we have a shoot with Shari today!
I look like a giant next to Alex, Liz, and Jess (who all wore flats). This is the first time I've been the "tall girl" in a photo. I'm only 5'5''. Love these girls and my new Parker dress.
Treated myself to some peonies this week.
And I just love this little face so much.
What are your plans this weekend? Whatever you do, I hope you have some fun!
