Happy Friday! What’s on your weekend agenda? I’ll be in Cleveland, eating and exploring and concert-ing with my mom. And hopefully getting my computer back, because it’s having some major issues and I’m not convinced that I want to buy a new one. I’m blogging from my mom’s computer now, and also using it to watch Gossip Girl. She’s an angel, but I want my own computer back.
So before we hit the weekend (weren’t we just there?), let’s look back on some of our favorites from the past week. Ready? Okay!
I may have mentioned it in passing, but it deserves at least its own paragraph, if not post. After my little mystery injury, I spent most of my summer lifting weights and taking the cardio pretty easy. For a while, even biking and elliptical-ing didn’t feel so hot. When they started to, though, I was itching to get back into it. Say what you will about cardio being boring, but I love it a lot and missed it.
Enter, eventually, CycleBar. I tried SoulCycle in Chicago a few times and enjoyed it, but didn’t get hooked. When I went to CycleBar, which is almost the same thing, I did get hooked. I love it. It kicks my butt, puts me in a good mood, and kept me in good enough cardio shape that running this past week didn’t feel nearly as hard as running usually does after time off. And… you don’t get as many injuries there as running.
I got these during the Nordstrom anniversary sale (I think they were on sale – can’t recall), and I’m obsessed with them. They’re comfy and pretty freaking supportive and super cute. They will be worn lots this fall. That’s all.

We all know painted nails make me feel “together”, but I mostly stick to French manicures or obnoxiously pink nails. This is different, darker, and I love it. Of course, since I did it myself, my nails look a little rough around the edges, but WHATEVER. They look good from afar.
I’m a total word nerd, I find language fascinating, and I am most certainly silently correcting your grammar. As such, I was so happy listening to this podcast. I’ve talked about EconTalk before, and while it is rooted in and often refers to economics, it’s about everything! This was all about the evolution of language, words without meanings, and contranyms. If it sounds nerdy, it is, but it is great.
With the beautiful weather, I’ve been taking Pippa for longer afternoon walks and totally relishing all the outside time. And then I’ve been going on her evening walks with my parents, too. Usually, I make the point that three people walking one dog is silly, but we haven’t all seen a whole lot of each other during the days, so it’s nice to walk and catch up at night.
And that’s all for me for the week! Have a freaking fantastic weekend!
What’s one subject you nerd out over? I have a hard time narrowing it to just one. Language, econ, Harry Potter, health. You know. Just everything.
