Curling in the City

Did you stay up late and watch the Oscars?  I only caught the end because I was downtown curling (random, I know!).  I never realized behind the meat dresses and crazy costumes that Lady Gaga can sing?!  I also didn’t realize that the Oscars went so late!

I started my Sunday getting back into the workout groove.  After 2 weeks without a yoga class, I was ready to get back on my mat.  I find that when I am out of my exercise routine, the easiest place to slide back in is a yoga class.  And then I found this on Pinterest…

If anything it starts out: " I almost didn't go, but I'm so glad I did!" {{so true, I haven't been feeling it.. But I went anyway to Bikram Class & had an fabulous class!!}}

So true!  Except that it’s a picture of a gymnast, but you can’t win ‘em all : )  I reveled in my post yoga glow and felt physically and emotionally awesome!

The rest of the day went by in a flash and included Mediterranean for lunch and a study session with my study buddy.  At 5:30pm, I met my friends Jen and Megan in the city.  You might remember them from this snow shoeing adventure.  Shortly after that, they moved to Australia. They are back visiting the states and were excited to go snow shoeing again.  Sadly, there just wasn’t enough snow.  Our back up plan…curling at the Beer, Bacon, and Sausage Bar!

We had a delicious dinner and then braved the cold (with warm bevvies in hand) to try curling.  Despite the text book form you see below, I was actually pretty terrible at the sport.  But that didn’t mean it wasn’t fun!

It was FREEZING though so frequent rest breaks by the fire were needed.  It was wonderful to catch up with my friends and I love that they always have the MOST FUN ideas!

I awoke this morning smelling like a camp fire (love it!) and have a busy day of Monday-ness ahead!

 

Have you ever tried curling? Any tips on technique?

  1. Curling! So random haha but sounds like a perfectly fun winter activity 🙂

    I’m so happy Lady Gaga finally put down her act and showed her chops. She is so talented but she always has to be “weird” — nothing wrong with being yourself but sometimes being yourself is singing the way she did last night!

  2. What a fun way to catch up with friends! Curling is HUGE in Minnesota (I think some of the Olympic team is from here?!). My parents curled for all of my childhood, so I spent hours at the curling rink growing up 🙂
