Weekending Blates

Another Monday morning.... another giant cup of coffee to help me feel better that another fabulous weekend has come and gone.


I had been going to Bar Method for the past month and a half, and my package recently expired so I decided to go back to Barre3 for a 3 class package and do a better comparison of the 2 workouts. I feel that after doing Bar Method 3-4 times a week, I am much stronger and I went into Barre3 ready to take on the shaking and quaking. Full review and comparison of the two studios will be coming soon as I feel they are very different yet very similar workouts.


Friday night, we went to dinner with H's parents to a local Italian place and enjoyed NY style pizza and drooled over the Italian dessert case.


Saturday, we booked our cruise for this year, and couldn't be more excited. After last year's trip across the pond and fabulous long weekend in Chicago we are ready for a tropical vacay. Can't wait to relax with a drink in my hand and lounging in the bright blue Caribbean water. So of course, with the trip booked it was time to shop for some new bathing suits...

Crochet Coverup and Bikini {similar} - Target

I usually pick up my bathing suits from VS, but I'm honestly not a fan of this year's collection. But I felt like Target was really on point this year in the swimwear department. So many cute suits to choose from.


Then it was time to lounge by the pool with a good book before meeting up with Kerri and Emily for our blate.

  13. Love the bikini you got and matching coverup! i agree about VS's collection this year. It actually looked decent in the catalogue on the models but when I went shopping yesterday hoping to find a bikini, I was like wtf is this? Nothing looked good in person. And I'm always up got a bloggy girls night or brunch hopefully soon!
