Champagne Campaign

We had a team-building outing over Labor Day weekend with the AmpedUp instructors and had such a great time! We called it the Champagne Campaign...but we didn't have any champagne, ha. There is something extra special about this workout studio {which Brent calls my cult} - I have never felt more acceptance and love in a workout place EVER. 

The instructors who were able to come met up for a lunch at an amazing restaurant on the lake, and then we rented a boat to go out on the lake and hang out. Such a great way to spend a beautiful afternoon!

Half of our instructor team after lunch - isn't that a gorgeous view?

Ready for fun on the boat!

Lina teaches jazzercise and Body Pump.
She has been a huge inspiration and help to me.

The water was AMAZING!!!

I'm so thankful to have found this studio and taken the plunge to becoming an instructor - it can still be stressful but at the end of the day, it's so worth it!

Book Clubiversary

Y'all know I love books and my book clubs. I also love traditions, celebrations, and dessert. Well, I realized this summer that my OG book club had our first meeting in August 2011 and we met this summer in August, so I decided we needed to celebrate 10 years as a book club!

Susie got onboard with the plan {she was hosting} and made a dessert for us. I got candles and we had fun celebrating together!

We've had people join and leave over the years, but 5 of the original girls are still with us and we have so much fun together. We've read 45 books, consumed countless bottles of wine, eaten lots of food, and had too many laughs!

One of my favorite things we do is our annual holiday gift exchange and dinner at Maggiano's, and I'm planning that now for this year. {By planning I mean getting a reservation ha!} I think this is our 6th year to go - see I didn't lie about loving traditions!

Here's to a lot more years of laughs, food, and ESPECIALLY books!
