MIMM: Weekend Edition
Marvelous is…Huffington Post Women‘s Twitter account tweeting my National Eating Disorders Awareness Week blog post on Friday morning. Um, holy. For them to think I’m worthy of a spot on their feed is a true honor. And all of your reactions in the comments and on Twitter were marvelous as well. Thank you!
Marvelous is…a night of dancing with Kim at the sold-out Urban Greenhouse Party at Knox Parks in Hartford. Free parking, $20 for unlimited (box) wine, local beer, and area restaurant food, my first silent auction bid ever (did not win), great conversation with new people of all ages, and most importantly, A BRITNEY MOMENT.
Marvelous is…meeting up with a social media and events marketer from Hartford Restaurant Group (Wood-N-Tap, Agave, TD Homer’s) at Daybreak to talk about all things restaurants, social media, fashion, and marketing. We ended up getting kicked out after they closed…who knows how long we could have kept chatting and what more I could have learned!
Marvelous is…attending my good friend Kat‘s baby shower at Casa Mia in Hartford’s Little Italy (Franklin Ave). I proved to myself that unlimited wine and food at a multi-course family-style Italian meal does not equate to an overstuffed, overimbibed Caitlin. Take that, ED. But more importantly, I cherished the time I spent meeting new people and being there to experience a special moment in a friend’s life – I can’t believe her little girl, Penelope, will be here this month! I’m holding out for us to be birthday twins (mine is the 22nd). I’m so happy to have met Kat through this blog and social media. Twitter is eHarmony for friends, folks.
Marvelous is…my dad getting back safely on Friday night from his business trip in Australia – and bringing me a new friend!
Marvelous is…two weekend mornings of good workouts! I killed it in Group Power on Saturday by keeping chest press at my newly increased weight, and I also pushed hard in biceps, my toughest muscle group to see strides in. I even left the gym after Power feeling pretty okay with not doing cardio before/after, and good thing too because on Sunday morning I took a KILLER spin class with one of my fave teachers. She has wonderful music (I was rockin’ it to “Beauty and a Beat”) and kicked my ass. Oo I can’t wait to take Group Power again tonight!
What was the most marvelous part of your weekend?
Are you afraid of snakes? I was surprised by how many freaked out reactions my snake pic got on Instagram!
Have you ever attended a baby shower? Did you see anything particularly Pinterest-worthy there?
How was your weekend of workouts…or rest!?
