Today started bright and early. My dad and I awoke before everyone else as usual and after publishing this morning’s blog post, I drove to the gym for a workout.
Talk about some beautiful early morning views…
At the gym, I did 20 minutes of cardio split between the stair master and the elliptical before hopping off and doing a total body workout inspired by BodyPump.
I completed 50 repetitions of the following exercises:
- Mountain Climbers
- High Knees
- Hamstring Ball Curls
- Bicep Curls
- Shoulder Raises
- Jumping Jacks
- Plank (60 seconds)
- Tricep Extensions
- Crunches on Exercise Ball
This workout had me sweatin’ and guzzlin’ water at the end!
Once I arrived home, I joined my family for a big breakfast before showering and driving to Clearwater for my friend Leah’s bridal shower.
Leah and I were in the same sorority in college and you might remember seeing her fiancé, Ricky, on the blog during our crazy cruise back in April. They’re a great couple!
Leah’s sister and maid of honor planned her bridal shower at their parents’ house and did a great job. There was delicious food, fun games and mojitos!
We played “How Well Do You Know the Bride?” which was a lot of fun!
My friend Laurel and I ended up tying for first place and were given M&M Cookies in a Jar as our prize! How fun!
Then it was time to open presents!
Leah had some help from her adorable flower girl.
It was such a nice afternoon and I’m so glad I was able to help celebrate Leah’s upcoming wedding. Now we have her bachelorette party to look forward to in New Orleans in a little more than a month!
P.S. The Fashion page was updated this afternoon.
