Eight Is Great, Tuesday Edition

I've been tagged by the lovely and talented Bonnie Rue at Good Girls and Geeks.. to take on the "Eight Is Great" challenge.

8 things I Am Looking Forward To:

-finishing my pilates training
-painting my bedroom (well, not the process, but having it done)
-Getting my new shirts from Urban Outfitters in the mail
-Going to see my sister this weekend- finally getting out of town!
-relaxing bbqs with family and friends
-having more time to cook and garden
-reading a good book
-summer fruit, esp. watermelon, blueberries, and mango

8 Things I did yesterday:

-took a nap from 12-2
-bought new sandals
-went grocery shopping
-listened to a lot of music
-went to the vitamin store to buy vitamins, but they were closed
-talked to my mom about an awkward situation at work
-spilled a drink all over my desk, down the wall, on my papers. And I cried.
- ate some new non-dairy ice cream sweetened with Agave.

8 Things I Wish I Could Do

-fly in an airplane without having a panic attack

-be more organized
-sleep in on the weekends- I always wake up by 7:00 no matter what time I go to bed

-start and finish a number of projects around the house that I've been wanting to do
-find a way to really help someone, or a family in need

8 Shows I Watch:
(this is hard, because I hardly watch t.v. I just watch the following SOMETIMES)

-What Not To Wear
-Regis And Kelly ( I know.. stupid, but there's something about the "New Yorkness" and "morning routine" of it that I find compelling.
-Some cooking shows
-Moving UP
-the odd documentary
-*hides head* American Idol
-and,........ I really don't watch t.v!

My Article is Up!

Is it true?

I've been away from my blog for almost a month!

I do have a very good excuse though.

You see, I've been living, breathing, and sleeping pilates. I've been in intensive training for a couple of months, and it will go on through the end of this month, when I start teaching my own classes. I don't know that I've ever been so busy that I basically have to schedule it in to run to the bathroom, but I'm now very familiar with that level of busy.

Annnnd, in the midst of all this, I took on a writing assignment for Venuszine. I knew that I really shouldn't try to write an article while trying to stay afloat in the sea of training delerium, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to interview and write about one of my fave artists, Ashley Goldberg.

I'm more than happy to say that I finished the article, I like how it came out, and it's up on Ashley likes it too, so she told me in an e-mail, which makes me want to giggle with glee.

Go take a peak
