The secret is out: we took Theodora to San Juan, Puerto Rico to celebrate her 30th birthday. And what a fabulous time it is!
Ashley, being a far more dedicated blogger than I, already put up a post about how we came to choose our destination/resort. In short, we were looking for someplace relatively close to NYC (I voted for Hawaii, but that was overruled as too far away), beachy/warm, but relatively affordable from both an airfare and hotel perspective. Puerto Rico is turning out to be everything we thought it would be – 85 degree temps and gorgeous beaches where we can lounge all day, plus an exciting bar/club scene to explore at night. Yes, these girls even got me to dance at a club until 3am – and have fun doing it! Ah, the power of good friends 🙂
Today, it’s a day of lying by the infinity pool – and working my way through the year’s worth of magazines I brought that have been cluttering my coffee table. And while we’re dancing up a storm at night, I’m also making it a point to get in some workouts as well. Yesterday, it was Shape Magazine’s “November Workout of the Month” – one minute each of various bodyweight exercises – followed by a few sets of these Brazilian Butt Workout exercises. Today’s workout remains TBD, but I’m sure I can find something in either the stack of magazines or online. I love Pinterest for finding new no-equipment workouts!
This is exactly the kind of weekend I love best – mixing fun with feeling good. I’m so happy to be here with a group of friends who have the same values I do! Happy Saturday, y’all 🙂
