Backyard S'mores

A week or so ago Cris decided to make s'mores in the backyard. He and Karson started a nice little fire, and Chloe and I prepared the graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows. I think Chloe ate about half of the chocolate before the fire was ready, and maybe a couple marshmallows, but who can get mad at such a cutie :) We made s'mores with Hershey's cookies 'n' cream bars, and some with regular ole' Hershey's chocolate... both turned out delicious! Chloe really didn't care for the messiness of the whole s'more, so she chose to continue stealing pieces of chocolate instead... too cute :)

Great SLC Yoga Festival 2014

This labor day weekend I was fortunate enough to go to the Great SLC Yoga Festival, put on by Yoga For People. Last year was my first experience with this yoga festival and I loved every minute of it! This year was just as great of an experience, and I was able to share the experience with my best friend Ashley and my mom.... amazing company :)

We did yoga with our eyes closed to focus more attention inward; we painted ourselves with glow-in-the-dark paint and did yoga in a black light room (it was like a yoga dance party!!!!); we started one class running laps and doing jumping jacks to get warm, and no one could help from laughing at the unexpectedness of it; we did Bhangra Yoga again... too fun to explain; we did a calm and relaxing Yin class, and it was nothing short of amazing; there was also walking meditation, happy heart yoga, blind folded yoga (which I took as an opportunity to just lay down and nap), and a class on back bends. I learned something to incorporate into my daily life in every class and had a really good time :)

In 3 days, we did 15 hours of yoga (if you count the class we slept through... LOL). What a great weekend! We are all trying to wait patiently for Labor Day to come again.

One of my goals this year was to do more yoga, so I decided to use all of that yoga to kick off my personal 30 day yoga challenge. So wish me luck, and here we go :)
