Tomorrow we leave for America… can you believe it? I’ve been planning this trip to see my family and watch my best friend walk down the aisle for months now and it’s finally here. If I could just write all six favorites this week were this trip I would, but you would be bored, so here are my actual Friday Favorites!
Favorite Place: The Newcastle Club
Earlier this week I was invited to a meeting at the Newcastle Club, the most exclusive club in the city. I mean so exclusive that Ben has been trying to get an invite for the past 9 years he has lived here with no luck because he has zero connections there at the moment. But I got in on Monday night for a meeting with a lovely group of ladies I am considering joining and will be making several visits to the club over the next year.
Favorite Weekend Activity: Exploring Newcastle
Last weekend Ben’s parents came to visit us in Newcastle and we took them on a walk through the city. Normally I’d roll my eyes at this because there really isn’t much going on down there on the weekends, but that was the beauty of it! Not much going on meant that we could wander through the church grounds, down corridors, and through historical sites. It was so much fun to explore areas I thought I knew but had no idea existed and read up on the history of the area.
Favorite New Hobby: Yin Yoga
Despite popular opinion around my house I am not a yogi, I enjoy practicing when I can find the time and prefer to take classes in a studio instead of on my own at home. This week I had an appointment downtown so I decided take a Yin Yoga class prior to the appointment
just to kill time because it seemed like the perfect time to try something new.
I loved the class, and so did my hips. I thought I would find it really challenging as my hips are super tight but instead I really felt them open as I held poses for five minutes at a time. It was all my favorite parts of a regular flow class but put into one and held for a long time. I think I’ll be adding this style of yoga to my regular schedule.
Favorite DIY: No Sew Lap Desk
I have been doing a ton of work this week to get all of my vacation posts out of the way before we leave. And although I am tired I have been working through the sleepiness in bed with a laptop to get everything accomplished! The A Beautiful Mess girls have a great tutorial for a laptop pillow, and it’s no sew, therefore, super simple!!
That’s it from me until Monday, unless you are signed up to my emails then you’ll get a special treat in your inbox from me soon. I’ve got a giveaway going on next week as well, so be sure to stop by and get entered.
See ya in America!
