Birthday Run and Paddleboard Fun

That title rhymes and I sort of hate myself for it but I can’t think of anything else right now. Also, this is super late, my birthday wasย on Memorial Day so it is now a full MONTH past my birthday, but I love these pictures and I want to share them!

I started out the day with an easy 3.5 on my favorite route. It felt real nice. Every time I go over this bridge I feel like I have to take a selfie. It’s just a requirement to take selfies when you’re over water.

The Friday before my birthday, my team at the office surprised me with a cake and balloons and this adorable candle headband, which I then forced my dog to wear, because that’s what dogs are for. ๐Ÿ™‚ย Our CEO is a yoga-nut and she pays for an in-office yoga class every Friday, which is why I’m in yoga pants. Oh how I wish yoga pants wereย the norm!

Reecy being so thrilled to wear this headband

The Saturday before my birthday a group of friends went down the Weeki Wachee River with me. It’s Florida’s famous mermaid river – look it up. It is magical. We kayaked, canoed, paddleboarded, etc.

I tried a bridge (wheel pose?) on my paddle boardย for the first time. It was a little exhilarating, not gonna lie. Though looking back at the pictures I can see the my form is LACKING. I’ll work on that. Maybe. Probably not. I love yoga but I have found I don’t really have the motivation for really getting good at it. It is a goal in the back of my mind to nail a few poses, so one of these days I’ll get serious about improving them (the splits and some headstand variations are the ones I like).

Terrible form. Also it looks like my head is about to pop off.

No birthday is complete without indulging in your current dessert obsession! Am I the only one who gets fixated on certain desserts for like a month at a time? The last phase I went through was donuts! The one before that was brownies. Right now I am in an in-between phase, which basically means all sweets are free game. But at least I’m not obsessing over a specific kind. That’s an improvement, right??

These beauties are from a lil place called Donut King. LOOK AT THE M&M ONE OMG
