I started “running” and spinning again this week. I’ll be honest, podcasts are not necessarily the best thing to listen to while sweating buckets on a spin bike, but I gotta multi-task people! It’s time to break out that little shuffle!
“Summer Music Preview: Premieres from Cat Power, Avett Brothers, The Antlers, and More”
NPR All Songs Considered — June 26, 2012
“Alec Baldwin: A ‘Rock’ throughout the Ages”
Fresh Air – June 25, 2012
“Ephron: From ‘Silkwood’ to ‘Sally,’ a Singular Voice”

“Political Implications of Today’s Generation Gap”
The Diane Rehm Show — June 27, 2012
I love discussions and examinations of generations. This is a great–listened in the car and there was lots of looking at the radio and saying “YES!”
“Marcus Samuelsson: On Becoming a Top Chef”
Fresh Air – June 28, 2012
Love this guy, but also just love anytime one of the superstar chefs is interviewed. When is Top Chef coming back!?!?

Happy Friday everyone. I had another great week. Graduated from yoga teacher training on Wednesday! It was definitely bittersweet. I’ll miss these ladies so very much. I can’t believe it! It flew by, but also seems like forever ago that I was writing this post.
Going to try and stay out of the heat today. Making a salad for July 4th party tomorrow, yoga, spin a little, and THEN I’m going to see THIS:
SO EXCITED! I wish my girl Tate was here to see it with me. Today is her birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TATE! Hopefully see you soon in a couple weeks!
Us back in our younger years:
Ahhh….I loved that back deck:

What a fabulous weekend…starting with my Mom’s art opening at The Artisan Center on Thursday.
She nailed it with her artist’s statement:
Lots of fun was had…then a wonderful meal with all the out-of-towners at The Green Door on Friday. Saturday morning and afternoon was filled with a wonderful yoga workshop–the culminating project for my teacher training! I will miss the ladies at Orbis very much, but I know I will see them often. Can’t wait to graduate Wednesday!
Saturday evening was full of dancing and merriment.
Sunday was full of porch sittin’ and yoga photo sessions:

Yo everybody! I got a new job! I’m so excited! Great hours that will allow me to teach plenty of yoga, but also a job doing work that I’m really excited/passionate about! YAY.
Also doing some freelance social media work—boom.
Will be back later with Listen to This…but then you might not see a new post from me until after the weekend. Lots of family from out of town coming in today for my Mom’s art exhibit and a massive 30th birthday for brother/sister-in-law. So excited! Lots of fun stuff in store…will have lots of photos to share next week.

Halfway done with 2012 already! Time to look and check on my New Year’s resolutions…
Looks like I’m doing pretty well!
1. Finish yoga teacher training
I can definitely check this off–I graduate next Wednesday!
2. Be a better baker
Yeah…this is definitely still a work in progress…Especially since I stopped buying a few things…
3. Read 30 books
I’m right on track with this one. I just looked at my list of books read so far this year…13 with two in progress! Here’s what I’ve read so far:
5. Try to be more patient in daily life.
Doubt I’ll ever be able to cross this one off the list…
