The Kings of Summer

The_Kings_of_Summer

I hope you all had a good weekend! It always goes so fast.

I saw a good movie this weekend. So good, that I have to tell you all about it.

It is a little Indie film that premiered to great ratings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in Ohio.

Plot: Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by the attempts of his single father, Frank (Nick Offerman), to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moisés Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

This movie is funny and entertaining. The boys cast in their roles are FANTAASTIC. Patrick’s parents are amazingly funny and so awkward.

I highly recommended going to see it if it is in a theater near you. Let me know what you think!

Last PB Class for 12 Days

Sunset. Fernandina Beach, Florida.

I am on day 5/5 in a row at Pure Barre today. My body hurts. I had to squeeze in as much as I could before I leave tomorrow for Kiawah!

PB Guilt is a real thing. The quilt of missing 12 days of Pure Barre is really setting in. I honestly feel guilty. So guilty, that I looked up the downtown Charleston studio. That’s 45 minutes away and I think the beach/swimming/biking/tennis will all be way too much fun to leave. I will just remember to tuck :).

So last Friday, Pure Barre had a “Bring on the men” night. It was so fun and very funny. There were 8 guys in the class. They sweated and didn’t have clue what was going on but they were all sore after 🙂 Thanks PB Dayton, please host another men’s night soon.

PB Men
Megan took my nephew, Jaxon and I took Jordan.

I have not heard from Cortney since yesterday morning. I try not to worry. I am sure she is having fun and I hope she is taking a lot of awesome pictures!

Kiawah tomorrow. CAN.NOT.WAIT.

Cortney Takes Africa

Quote 5
Cortney is off to the airport today about 11. She is looking at about 18.5 hours total on a plane.

She will leave Ohio at 1:20pm Friday and arrive in Africa at 9:40pm Saturday. (Africa is 7 hours ahead of us)

Keep up with her trip on her blog; http://www.cortneytakesafrica.wordpress.com. I really hope she will update for us haha!

Be safe, Cortney. Can’t wait to see you in 2 months. Love you

Cortney is Engaged!

It adds so much more resistance than before. Plus now the instructor knows if we are cheating because you can see the slack in the tube.

What are your plans for this weekend?

Pure Barre’s 20 Class Challenge

shape 1 So true. No excuses.

Pure Barre 7

Well we are officially halfway through our 20 class challenge. The challenge is to complete 20 classes in the month of May. As of May 15 I have done 11 classes which means I am ahead of schedule! If I stick to my normal class scheduled days then I have the potential to complete 22 classes this month. I really don’t know if my legs can handle that.

shape 2 My poor legs hurt all the time!

Pure Barre is unlike any other workout I have ever done! It is so challenging but yet doesn’t look challenging at all. It is the smallest of movements that focus so strongly on those specific muscles (arms, butt, legs and abs) in which your mind body connection has to be strong.

Shape 3

I have become addicted. I look forward to going to class and giving it my all. I have noticed changes in my body and I think that is a huge motivation! My seat (butt) is lifted, my arms are sculpted and my stomach is looking flatter. I can’t wait to see the results after I complete all my classes this month. I plan to continue the 5/6 days a week into June so that I look even better for our summer trip to Kiawah. Maybe I will even get brave enough to post a picture of me in a bathing suit in June. I plan on looking like Gisele (Bundchen) haha

Shape 4
If this is a cookie, I really want to eat it. I can eat it while tucking if that makes it any better.
