I am super pumped, I just booked my flight to Toronto for the 3rd week in February to visit and work with Davida. We have a VERY special project that we have been working hard on for the past 5 months (OMG can’t believe it’s been that long), and being in the same room for 5 days is much needed. We can only do so much via Skype…especially when Davida accidentally sleeps in until 10AM. LOL.

I’ve never actually been to Toronto, so I am really excited to explore a new city. My extent of Toronto is literally D’s apartment and out her window. I have this vision of what it’s going to be like and I’m so excited to put some actual scenery to it. After Toronto we (Davida, her beau, and I) are flying straight to Chicago. C is hosting a mini conference and Davida and I are going to “live it up” in Chicago aka visit my grandma and grandpa and make homemade pizzas :D

Anyways, I was at Whole Foods last week and stocked up on some beautiful citrus fruit. Corepower Yoga Edina, where I teach yoga sculpt, is in the same parking lot as Whole Foods. Yah, this is an issue for my bank account. 

The blood oranges were on sale! WOOO. Best part is- they had free samples. Anyone else go around WFM and try all the samples….or am I the only one who does that?
