The last week of April?!

Gosh, this month has been both exciting and dreary. My birthday was everything I needed with sun, sand, fruity cocktails and family around. I’m so happy to finally be enjoying activities outside in the Northeast too. However, I caught some weird bug that has taken a full two weeks to get out of my system. The bright side though is I’ve gotten through a lot of Gilmore Girls :-). How did I miss this show?! Now allergies have struck, but I’m excited to end this month on a high note with some TLC this weekend.

Here are some of my favorites from this week:

Julianne & Derek Hough’s Move Tour

Ah!! I couldn’t wait for this show! It’s my second time going to Julianne & Derek’s live show and it was even better than the last one. I’ve been following them every since Julianne won her first season on Dancing With The Stars. I swear they get more talented as time goes on.

Their show is always so inspiring and makes me miss dancing 5 days a week so much. I about lost it when they danced, and Derek sang, the El Tango De Roxanne from Moulin Rouge. I’ve dreamed of dancing to that song from the movie forever, so needless to say I was mesmerized by what they did with it. If there are still tickets to a show near you, I highly recommend it! (Sorry these pics are so blurry, the lightening of the show was really dynamic)

Tone It Up Live Instagram Workout

I caught Katrina & Karena’s Live workout on Instagram yesterday by chance and it was pretty fun. I’ve worked out with some of their videos on youtube in the past, but this felt like I was actually on the beach with them, kind of lol. The live aspect was the interesting part and it didn’t hurt to have Manhattan Beach as the backdrop. Has anyone done any live Instagram workouts with other trainers?!

What’s Up Wednesday

If you are curious as to what I’ve been up to, what’s happening next week, what I’m loving, reading, or wearing check out my What’s Up Wednesday April post. This linkup is a great place to find new favorites 😉

I NEED THIS!

After seeing some pineapple floating coolers over on Martinis & Bikinis, I was inspired to search for pool accessories. Ok I’m pretty sure my family and friends will send me away if I add one more float to my summer pool & lake activities but come on!! A margarita float?!  #yesplease I really can’t help myself lol, let’s go summer!

Things That Make Me Happy

I was so excited to break this tumbler out this week and this nail color!

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! 

Side note: I’m so excited about attending my first blogging conference next week. I’m attending Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) North America in Huntsville, Alabama for a few days. Did you know Huntsville is known as Rocket City due to it’s history with space technology for US Space Missions?

    Love the float, hahaha! I am obsessed with tumblers and that one is super cute, but I’m certain my husband will disown me if I purchase another tumbler/water bottle, or mug! HA!

    Enjoy the conference! If you have any opportunity to tour the NASA public facilities, you should try and do it! I visited a NASA research lab in California a few weeks ago as part of work responsibilities, and it was seriously the coolest thing EVER!! It surpassed my expectations in so many ways!
