As You’re Reading This…

May 4, 2012 · 36 comments

…I’m either in Colorado for the Blend Retreat, or I’m en route. Probably doing one of the following things:

1. Sitting on the airplane reading Fifty Shades of Grey on my iPad in public. Attempting to keep a straight face.

2. Showing up to the Blend Retreat in my loofah.

I thought about it.

3. Guessing the over/under I get to spend serious quality time with some of my favorite internet munchkins.

No, but seriously… I’m that creepy. I already told Lindsay I shotgun chilling with Clara at the first moment they’re less than 10 feet away from me.

4. Convincing Courtney that I’m the best roommate ever. And a fantastic snuggler. Sorry, Jay. I’m stealing her for the weekend.

5. Acting as sunscreen police. Everyone’s either going to love me or hate me for the lotion lectures and skin cancer stories that are gonna go down this weekend for our hikes in the sunshine.

6. Entertaining everyone at how graceful and bendy I’m going to be in my first real yoga class.

7. Overdosing on all the bars we’ll be getting from our swag bags. We’ve got a butt ton of sponsors up in huur, and I’m thrilled I won’t have to worry about my snack stock.

8. Crying because I hate living out of a suitcase. I can’t ever find anything. Ever. This might make me have to rescind my comment in #3; Courtney may not appreciate this.

9. Saying the word “Chautauqua.” …Over and over again. I kind of wish I lived there so I could say it every day. “Cha-tau-quaaa!”

10. Sitting in the corner pouting at bootcamp because my rib hurts. This is a slight possibility, as my ribs didn’t feel awesome after my first attempt with crunches on Wednesday night. I plan to take it easy and do the non-rib related moves to the best of my ability and pray for no pain (Tina and Lindsay, tell me it’s all squats and shoulder presses and we’re golden).

11. Beating everyone at Mall Madness. It’s on, girls of Missions Lodge. It’s. On.

I’m the best fake credit card-swiper this world has ever seen.

I’m also not so bad with the real thing. Which can sometimes present a problem.

Clara desperately wants to chill with you. Her verbal skills are lacking, but she can show you how to eat a PB &J in 1.5 seconds.

Hahaha, love your comments about Fifty Shades. I actually just finished the book but since I don’t have an ebook/iPad I read the book in the privacy of my own home!

I live in Boulder, CO! Enjoy your time here, it is an incredible place 🙂

MALL MADNESS! Loved that game as a kid. Too bad I still treat my debit card like the ones in the game!!

I remember when I was a kid, my parents wouldn’t let me play Mall Madness because they thought I was too young and impressionable. That I would then go off and then spend all of my money on yoga clothes, running shoes, and anything from Lululemon. Ahem, that plan backfired big time.
Enjoy Colorado!!! I grew up in Wyoming and LOVE the Denver area. Have a blast!
