Weekend Dispatch

Friday, February 24, 2017
This to-do list is taken directly from my own personal calendar (yes, I put my workouts and exercise classes on my calendar!). It includes what I plan to do, eat, read, and watch this weekend and some recommendation for things I've recently done.

One of my favorite things to do when the weather starts to get warmer is walk the Asbury Park boardwalk. In addition to the great shops and fantastic restaurants (along the way you can stop for a crepe, lemonade, boardwalk fries, a Korean fusion taco, and a cocktail), there is phenomenal art on the stroll. The majestic murals and wooden walls are truly a sight not to be missed. If the weather holds out on Saturday, I plan to head to Asbury for a long stroll.

I'm consciously making an effort to do more reading. On Sunday mornings I pick up The New York Times and leisurely peruse it over an iced latte. Sometimes I need reading material that doesn't require hours and hours of commitment but is still engaging and entertaining. Tomorrow when I hit the gym, I'll be reading The Grownup by Gillian Flynn. Flynn wrote Gone Girl and Dark Places, both of which I was incapable of putting down once I started. The Grownup is a short story that's barely 50 pages long and can easily keep me entertained for an hour while I walk on the treadmill. ($2.99 on both Kindle and Nook).

On Saturday, Harper and I will be attending the grand opening party at Bee You Kids Yoga Studio in Manasquan. Maura Bradley, the owner, was previously a yoga instructor at Drishti Yoga in Sea Girt, where we have attended several mom and me classes (which we loved!). I am thrilled for Maura and her new adventure in children's yoga. Yoga has helped me in so many ways, and I hope that it can help my kids to be more mindful, more relaxed, and more peaceful in their approach to every life situations.

OMG! I can barely contain my excitement. Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce is back for its third season!! Abby McCarthy, I've missed you! Woo hoo! I've written before about my love for this show (and for the cool LA scenery that is everywhere in every episode). Now that season 3 is underway, I've got about 6 episodes to binge-watch this weekend. If you've never watched, you can catch the first and second seasons on Netflix, and the current season on Bravo!

And don't forget that Seussical is still playing at the Spring Lake Community House. We saw it last weekend, and of course, it was phenomenal. It so fun and entertaining, and it's not terribly long, which makes it a nice show for small children. Get tickets here.

So, tell me. What do you have planned this weekend?
