+ I just love the results of my monthly facial acupuncture. I've been doing this since last spring and the results are amazing - soft, hydrated skin that is firm and supple. I have appointments lined up for the next three months and can't wait!
This picture is unfiltered/untouched. I'm not wearing any makeup other than a bit of concealer under my eyes - no foundation, no powder, no blush or lipstick.
+ Hotel to NYC booked! Goddamn, hotels in NYC are expensive. My husband is racing in the NY Gran Fondo in May and since the race starts at the NJ Turnpike, we booked a hotel in the upper west side. Now comes the fun part - where to eat and take Kayla. It's been a while since we've been to NYC.... 12 years, maybe? For sure I'd like to go back to the area of the two towers, walk around Soho/Chinatown/all the boroughs, run through Central park. I'll definitely be taking one day to train at a muay thai gym there.
+ Speaking of trips in 2017, our annual Mt. Tremblant winter trip is coming up fast. We leave Feb 2-7 and I'm so excited! my snowboard is tuned and I just have to adjust the bindings but other than that, we're ready to hit the slopes. Refresher ski and snowboard lessons have been booked and this year, we got a great deal on the hotel.
+ My husband came down with the flu AND strep throat which totally kicked his ass and kept him in bed for a good 5 days. To avoid that shit, I've been slurping down ginger/lemon/honey tea all week because ain't nobody got time for that.
+ Kayla came up with a great activity for the evenings: The Reading Club. We have to "register" our book in order to get into this club which is fine by me...I'll do anything to foster her love of reading. This is her "registration table" where she records our name, our book and takes attendance.
A Scanner Darkly.
+ Anyone watch boxing? I never cared about boxing until I started doing Muay Thai; now I can fully appreciate the technical aspect of boxing and how amazing this sport really is. Check out this guy, Vasyl Lomachenko - he's an Olympic boxer who turned pro and holy shit, his footwork and technique are mind-blowing and beautiful.
+ Check out my DIY stand-up desk! Thanks to my wonderful husband who made this for me.
+ THIS SERIES! If you haven't started reading this, GET ON IT NOW. I'm almost finished Golden Son and can't wait to start Morning Star.
