Bridge and Bridges

Since we're performing in Stanley Park, we get some nice views of the Lions Gate Bridge:
We also had dinner on the patio at Bridges. This was dessert - gelato turtle pie. YUM.

Back to Zumba

I took my first Zumba class over a year ago! It has been an amazing year, filled with Zumba :) And guess what - I lost 30 pounds! It was pretty easy to do, after I found something I loved. The eating better just fell into place after all the cardio I was doing.

But between rehearsals and shows and work, I haven't had much time for Zumba. Plus the schedules changes every few months, one of my teachers didn't offer a summer class, and some of the regular times don't work for me anymore. So I haven't gone to a Zumba class in over 2 months!! The good news is that I've managed to keep the weight down. It must be from the cardio workout I get on stage during the show.

Since I'm on vacation this week, I managed to catch a daytime class yesterday. I'm back to Zumba, baby! And it's as fun as always!

Coffee Coffee Coffee!

Man, I love coffee! And donuts!
And I love the colour scheme at the 49th Parallel - lovely pale turquoise and vintage orange. Also: coffee!

Books and a cat

I'm off this week again, for another staycation! It's been nice sleeping in, enjoying the hot weather, and going to the show every other night. Me and the hubs have also been poking through a lot of used bookstores - one of our favourite pastimes. Look at this cute cat. He's a bookstore cat and he's sleepy.

Fitbit steps

Hairspray is on every other night. Since my Fitbit clips on, I wear it under my costumes. Guess which nights are show nights!

Hairspray - Secret Friend

Often when I do shows, we play a Secret Friend game. You pick a name and receive a sheet that's filled out with your secret friend's favourite things. Then you get them things throughout the run of the show - little things, big things, you can spend money or leave them little pictures and notes. I'll post some pics later about the things I've gotten my secret friend. But LOOK at the cool stuff I've received from my secret friend!

First of all, they come wrapped in my favourite colours, as sticks of Dynamite, since I play one of the Dynamites in the show. So cute!

I got two flavours of yummy tea, and four nail polishes - all in the colours of the wigs I wear during the show!
Dynamite - so cute, right?
Then I got a whole bunch of Coffee Crisps (yay!) and some pampering products: peppermint sugar body scrub and coffee detox scrub cakes. They smelled amazing! It was so nice to pamper myself, I gave myself a home pedicure with the peppermint scrub. I LOVE that my secret friend is crafty, since these were obviously home made. Yayyyyy for crafty secret friends!
