Happy birthday to me

thumb_IMG_6549_1024For my birthday this year I decided to treat myself to Pure Barre! I started with the $10 Tuesday deal and then quickly fell in love. The music, the small movements, the pain. I’m officially hooked. I’m also incredibly in love with their clothing! Too bad I can’t afford any of it, ha. I’m 6 classes in and already seeing results. I took a before shot of my mid-section in case an after shot will be needed. Let’s see how I do after 30 days …  Happy birthday to me!

Thank God for misters

IMG_5768On Fridays we’re getting into the habit of meeting at Jace’s day care for a dual pick-up and then to O.H.S.O. Brewery for dinner as a family. We talk about our week, entertain J and then over eat. OHSO Brewery has the BEST patio seating overlooking Camelback mountain. It also has wonderful umbrella coverage, fans and above all – MISTERS. I forgot how much I love and appreciate misters in Arizona. They feel so wonderful when your body is clammy and sweaty. I’m pretty much going to be seeking these babies out every where we go this summer, now that the temps are in the 100s. Plus, it’s so fun to see Jace’s little face get tickled with the mist. It’s the little things in life, right?! OHSO is definitely one of our favorite spots around town. It’s dog friendly, plus family-friendly!  Sister met us there for dinner, too and we ordered our favorites beers on happy hour (Orange Blossom, Mr. Pineapple, OHSO Hoppy). We both ordered the kalua pork,  Rob the surf & turf. I’m also a huge fan of their garlic shrimp tacos .. seriously amazing. They have an awesome happy hour (and brunch on the weekends). If you’re in the Arizona area, you should definitely check ’em out. But if you’re a local, I’m sure you already have because everyone is in love with this place.
