ass woopin

So I practice yoga fairly religiously (about 4 times a week)...that is until everyone in this house started trading viral plagues about 6 weeks ago. I hadn't been to class in 6 weeks, which is by far the longest stretch I have gone with no yoga since I began practicing. I have finally started feeling human again the past couple of days and Munchkin is well enough to stay in the child-watch area, so I really felt like I needed to venture back into my yoga class this morning.

I walked in just as everyone was getting cozy on their mats, my yoga teacher looked at me and grinned...and then she proceeded to woop my ass with my own yoga mat. Holy CRUISE! I will probably be sleeping in traction tonight and DH will likely have to pull my underwear up for me tomorrow, but a good ass-woopin' never felt so good!

And I can't forget to welcome all the wonderful ladies over here for Virtual Girl's Night Out hosted by Ann at Ann Again...And Again. It's a fun night of blog hopping. I encourage you to head over to Ann's and add your URL to the Mister Linky and start hopping.

And for a little VGNO news, I met a lovely lady at our party last week--Erin at This Mom Can Shop. We talked a little more over the weekend and this week Erin is hosting a Flashcard Zoo give-away on her blog. I encourage you to visit her blog (heck, why don't you just "follow" her while you're at it. She obviously has good taste in give-aways) and enter to win a lovely set of my flashcards.

Y'all have a good one!

I'm so excited! I ordered a custom tote bag and matching make-up bag just 4 days ago from Dee's Deezigns on Etsy and I got an email today (with lovely picture attached) saying it would ship out tomorrow!

I can't even remember how I found her shop, but I am so glad I did. I've been carrying around a black microfiber diaper bag/tote from Wally World for about a year, and the lining has been completely ripped out and floating around inside the bag for at leats 4 months. So I decided I would splurge and get myself a nice tote bag. She even custom-made it to my specifications (outside pockets and matching make-up bag, pretty please.) Yippee! I can't wait.

So if you're in the market for a tote bag or any other shoulder bag, go take look at her shop!

Yeah, that's my leg. And before any of you go all "OMG! I can't BELIEVE she hasn't shaved in that long!" don't EVEN act like you have never had hair that long on your legs before. If you say you haven't, you're lying. You likely didn't post a picture on your blog (that requires a special brand of crazy) but it was there, hiding under your velour lounge pants.

Everyone in this house has been sick for the past 2 MONTHS and things like shaving my legs and buying groceries have been low on the list of priorities. I'm feeling a bit better now and we've just about eaten everything in the pantry so I guess it's time to go to the grocery store. And if the clippers are charged I might even mow my legs tonight. We'll see.

I have a real bone to pick with Speedo. I was at Costco last week and saw this bathing suit lying on the table (and for those of you squinting to see what size it is, it's a size 8 m'kay.) When summer rolls around we frequent the community pool on a daily basis and we are going to the coast this year so I thought splurging on a new suit was in order. I liked the colors and it looked really nice lying there on that plastic form.

HOWEVER! Do NOT be misled. That bathing suit looks NOTHING like that when you put it on. The bra cups are not near as perky, the waist is tight and bulges out in front a bit, and GET THIS, the whole back side spreads out CONSIDERABLY! I am so indignant and upset. I have a right mind to take a picture of myself wearing the bathing suit and send it along with my complaint. If you want the bathing suit to look right, you have to wear the plastic mold under it, and trust me, that is NOT comfortable.
