Weekending Summer Edition

Oh Monday Monday Monday……how did you get here so quickly?  Summer has definitely arrived in Florida! Linking up with my girl Biana for her second annual weekending post.  I’m not going to lie, my weekend wasn’t too glamorous but I got a few classes in, slept with no alarm and got tons of work done.  Everything is better with visuals right?


Working on my standing split and the 5 minute plank challenge.
Finally got our group picture from the Grand Opening party!  Love teaching a full class.

We headed to our favorite sushi place.  Threw on this maxi.

Dress sold out but found here///save version in blue here///save version in black here
My absolute favorite bottle of pinot
Finished the weekend grilling by the pool and enjoying the gorgeous Florida weather.  See I do eat healthy I promise!  Grilled veggies, swordfish and rice.  Adult libation while we waited.
Words to live by….
How was your weekend?  Did you do anything more glamorous than me?  Check back tomorrow for the products I’ve been digging lately.  Have a fabulous day!! xoxoxo

  1. Ok, I think we really need to see your other leg in this standing split. I see you are wearing your Plie Tights! How are you liking them, I got mine last week but haven’t had a chance to try them at barre. I did try them on and I think I might like my Zellas a little more but still winners!

  2. Lovingggg the red maxi!! And you can’t beat a sushi date! Xo

    We finally had summer weather this weekend and it felt wonderful to just be outside! All your maxi’s are so adorable, and a sushi date is always a good idea.

  4. Love the red maxi and the top knot! Poolside lounging is the best!!

    That dinner looks so good!! And you can bet if I am ever your way you can bet I will be in one of your classes :)


  6. i LOVE that red dress (notice the caps on loooove). looks beautiful on you :).
    btw, that plank challenge looks interesting, the link doesn´t work though, where could I check it out?

  7. Your plank seriously is flawless (but duh that’s a given)!! I love that we both eat sushi on the reg!! Sounds like a perfect and relaxing weekend!! Link is live :) Still figuring all this out lol! Happy Monday love!

  8. I have been forgetting to take photos of my weekend lately. I think I took a total of 3…. I am so lame.

    But I did eat some grilled kobobs and my husband went to the waffle house AND I wore a new maxi dress as well. I freaking loved it.

    Happy Monday to you!

  9. You look SO pretty in your red maxi, top bun and shades girl! I didn’t do anything huge either. I spent Saturday with my family then ended it with friends, then stayed at home in my pj’s yesterday doing stuff around the house. It was a pretty good weekend :)

  10. YUM I love Pinot! Looks like such a great weekend!! So sorry I never got in touch with you, Saturday was crazy busy in Tampa and I was kind of winging it with what time I was going to get up there! Next time I’m in town we’re totally getting drinks, and I’m not talking about the coffee-kind. :)

  11. what a great weekend. and that maxi dress. gimme :) florida heat is here, holy moly. i can’t wait to head to the west coast (fl) for the day this coming saturday!

  12. Wait. 5 minute plank challenge?!? Um yeah, I think I’d pass out. Seriously you are gorgeous in that red maxi! And we totally grilled out this weekend too… such great (but really hot) weather! How fun are your Gator Solo cups? Perfect for tailgating!!

  17. Oh I love that last quote– so true! LOVE that maxi dress too- the red is such a great color! Your standing split is impressive girl! I can hardly do a 30 second plank! I can’t even think about 5 minutes!

  20. I LOVE YOUR WEEKEND! I just love you more and more everyday. You go girl! Love the challenge, you have a killer body, love the maxi, love the Pinot!

  21. There were zero signs of glamor over here, but it at least was productive. I know I already told you, but you look killer in that maxi! Glad you had a good weekend. :)

  22. Brianne says:

    I’m doing the 5 minute plank challenge too! Along with a crunches, pushups, & squat challenge. I really love that last quote and the image it’s on.

  23. I think I’d probably die if I tried to plan for five minutes at this point. But I should do some type of plank!

    Glad you had a good weekend!

  24. P!nky says:

    Looks like such a wonderful weekend. Way to rock the work out and that sushi looks divine, yum!

  30. Love – and have – that maxi! Definitely adding this wine to my new found (and free, obvi) app (Rate a Wine, because drinkers be getting confused by what is/not worth the moolah ha). Happy Monday!

  31. Every muscle in my body just tensed reading “5 minute plank challenge”. Good luck!!

    Did you use your engraved chopsticks?! ;P

  45. That dress looks fabulous and your plank looks flawless! Seriously jealous over here. haha

  46. I did my first race this weekend, and now that that’s over and I can cool down on the running I think I’m going to look into finding a Barre class nearby – you’ve inspired me!

  47. Your arms make me jealous. Just saying…. :)

  48. You looks so pretty in that dress! :D My weekend was crazy busy! I headed to Houston on Thursday and back on Friday night. Then Saturday the boyfriend’s parents came into town to visit for the week. By Sunday, I was already exhausted. Hah.

  49. looks like a fun weekend! so what exactly are standing splits? something i should probably be working on too! love that dress on you. maxi dresses in the summer are the best ever.

  50. Girl, your “thrown together” look kills me. Absolutely perfect! Looks like a great weekend!

  51. Meghan says:
