My weekend highlights:
- Outdoor Yoga
This was absolutely fantastic! I am so grateful that my yoga instructor invited me and introduced me to this!! We met at Freedom park in Medford. It was a great group led by Stephanie from Outdoor Yoga of South Jersey. She is absolutely fabulous! It was so much fun being outdoors. The weather was perfect, not to hot, a great breeze. I was a bit nervous at first because we were on the grass. My balance is already “off”, I thought it would be worse on uneven ground BUT to my surprise (and assurance from Stephanie) it was even BETTER! She was right, I was able to “ground” into the earth better and really grip the ground! Birds were chirping, bugs buzzing and …….cameras were rolling………huh? Yes. Channel 6 news came out to tape the event 🙂 Poor Stephanie! She was nervous (but honestly you could NOT tell!!)
I highly recommend this to anyone! Its great for all levels. Beginner to advanced. I love her style and her “flow”. I will definitely be going back! I hope to see YOU there as well!!
2. Ice Cream Festival
Yesterday I was super excited to check out the Ice Cream Festival in Toms River. It was pretty much a disappointment, just not what I expected at all. I thought there would be more crafts, vendors and…….ICE CREAM!?!?! You had to purchase a tasting ticket to try little samples of ice cream. The lines were ridiculously long, for a spoonful of ice cream. Not to mention the LINE to purchase a tasting ticket was 50 bananas longs! (haha)
I was NOT going to let that ruin my day. The ride to the festival was enjoyable and relaxing. I was able to take Lily with us , and she enjoyed the attention and walk (and some unidentifiable food she found on the ground!). **Sidetracking….Lily gets SOOOO much attention!! I seriously can not walk 2 feet without being stopped!
Sooooo, I decided although I was disappointed, it was a learning experience. I also know that THINGS do not make a “great time”. You have to make it satisfying for yourself! So i took what I could from the event andddddddddddd we decided to take a short drive to the Seaside heights boardwalk for some Italian Sausage and …………ICE CREAM!
I had a black and white twist in a cup (I do not like cones! They drip and are messy, etc) My mom had her favorite, orange and vanilla twist. Of course we went to Kohrs! It was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! I can not believe how many years I deprived myself of this goodness!! What a difference REAL ice cream has!! It was fun to eat, people watch , and hide Lily in my pocket book (her head was popping in STILL causing attention!) So i am STILL listing this as a highlight, because, i got to spend it with my two favorite girls, ate ice cream and relaxed!! Can NOT go wrong!!
