So We’re Doing This Now

I opened up my Commit30 planner this morning and discovered that I had made it my monthly goal in March to blog daily. It’s already March 4th, y’all.


Whatever. I’m getting cheese fries.

So, I’m still recovering from bronchitis. Yesterday I carried a moderately heavy preschooler down the street and didn’t feel like I was hit by a truck afterward, energy-wise, so I think I’m doing better. I hope to make it back to CrossFit this week because OMG my body is going nuts with all of this resting stuff. I am so anxious and antsy and I just want to move.

Last night I went to my sister’s birthday party (Happy Birthday, Amanda!) and because we are actual weirdos she taught me the little dance/warmup routine she choreographed. It was the most exercise I’ve gotten in 3 weeks and it felt amazing. Oh, and in other dance-y exercise news, I for some reason volunteered to teach a dance aerobics class for an upcoming spiritual workshop I’m on a committee for. I am not a dance fitness instructor. And I haven’t actually danced in like 15 years. But I figued, how hard can it be? I’ll throw a playlist together, watch some Zumba and Jazzercise videos on YouTube, and see what happens. Famous last words. Let’s just file this under our “Have Fun With That, Emily!” and y’all can pop some popcorn and watch this train wreck as it unfolds.

As always, go make it a great day!


Who Needs Titles? [Updated]

[Update: so, I apparently forgot a title on this post. Oops. But that’s easy to fix!]

A million years ago when my mom owned a dance studio and I was forced to assisted with the “little kid” classes, we had a series of ballet warm-up songs that were all garden themed. I think the series was called “A Fantasy Garden Ballet.” Think Tendu the Tulip, Saute the Bunny, Pas de Chat the Pansy, etc. Anyway, the first warm-up song we danced to started out like, “Good Mooooorning! Good Mooooorning! It’s tiiiiiime to wake up.” Once in a while that pops in my head before I begin the day’s salutations. Anyone out there still in the dance education industry that are familiar with this series, or is it still around even?

That was random.

Anyway, good morning! I’m over here enjoying my last hotel breakfast, a repeat of Tuesday, I suppose.


Eggs, sausage, fruit, yogurt with granola, coffee, water. Boom.

It’s my last day in Pittsburgh, I head back to SF tomorrow morning. When I checked into my flight this morning, I found that I got a first class upgrade on my flight from Minneapolis to SFO. Score! Happy dance, I love having status, even if it means I spend half my life in another city.

Better shove off to the office for another big day. Are you pumped it’s almost Friday? I love heading home on Fridays.

Go make it great day!

The One Where I Get Happy

Good morning! We are having a chill morning over here. Squishy has the flu, and was up like a party animal at 5 am ready to take on the world. I could not convince him that if the sun isn’t up yet, then he should not be up yet either. He finally laid down around […]
