After an Epic fail of a hockey game (congrats to the US team!), Eric and I slinked off to do WMM2 with our tails between our legs. All was well until we began. My husband proceeded to morph into Richard Simmons. He was doing the most exaggerated poses I have ever seen, pretending he was a yoga master, whirling his arms around, and making loud, breathy noises.
I started with the full plank and crumbled to the ground in laughter at his antics. He started to do the fastest bicycle crunches I have ever seen in my life. I thought he was going to pull a muscle!! It was utterly hilarious.
I. could. not. hold. a pose. for. the. life. of. me.
Need less to say, my abs got a workout, but not in the traditional format! ;)
I concluded two things:
1) My husband is sabotaging me because he wants better abs come Jan 31st.
2) I need to hide a whittle cam in the room.
GAME ON, HUSBAND. GAME ON.
I tried to piece it together, but it is a bit blurry… ;)
‘Cuz us two crazy Canucks might be coming to a city near you!
We found a sale on flights to Florida (Westjet) after months of searching!
The sale was only on for the end of March, so we booked our trip from March 20-April 1st.
We will be staying in Naples with my mom and stepdad. Eric and I are planning on renting a car and road trippin’ around Florida’s coast for a bit too.
I used to live in Florida when I was young, but Eric has never been to Florida before, so it would be fun to do some touristy things for him. I’d also love to plan some blog meet-ups along the way! I’m hoping to find a good deal on a rental car and possibly a couple hotels along our road trip.
73 days of winter to go!
Putting it that way seems long. :(
This is the nicest yoga tote I have ever laid eyes on!
The amazing team from Lululemon surprised me with this awesome yoga tote. I almost died with delight when I opened the box.
Lots of pockets, zippers, straps, and detailing.
As much as I love, love, love this yoga tote, I would love even more to be able to make someone else happy and spread the Lulu love and good Karma.
I am going to give it away to one lucky reader.
Errr…maybe I won’t.
I’m sorry I like it too much. I can’t part with it!
Forget what I said!!!
Ok, ok, I will, I will. ;) Sheesh.
For a chance to win this Lululemon yoga tote:
- Leave one comment below telling me what Lululemon product is at the top of your wish list.

I will be mailing out this gorgeous yoga tote to one lucky winner. It may or may not be packed with several boxes of 4’Oclock Chocolate Spice Tea.
Contest closes Thursday January 7th at 8:30am EST. Open to US and Canadian residents only please.
On the agenda for Wednesday is a CSD– ‘Crazy Shipping Day’
I meant to mention that I am throwing an Empower (chocolate coffee) Glo Bar in with the Healthy Resolutions Fit Packs. Empower is quickly becoming the #1 customer favourite, so I figured I would include it into the pack too. When you open the Empower package a wonderful aroma of coffee fills the air. It is a great morning bar.
More groovepants! I am so in love with them. I went to baking and pastry school though October/November/December and had to curb all my spending. I love those pants, I might treat myself to them for doing so well in school haha!
That is one lovely bag!
I’ve really been wanting a yoga tote! I don’t have one at the moment and I wind up lugging my mat to school with me on the bus stuck in a cloth bag. It tends to fall out or I wind up hitting people with it (once in the face, very embarrassing). So a Yoga tote is on the wish list so I can get from home to uni to yoga and back home without stress or yoga mat mess!
My favorite Lululemon product would have to be that adorable bag!
As far as Florida goes, you should totally check out the Keys. I only made it as far as Key Largo which isn’t far at all but we went snorkeling at Pennekamp Coral Reef Park and it was AMAZING! They take you waaaaay out to where the water changes colors because it mixes with white sand from the Bahamas. It was truly magnificent.
We stayed in Hollywood, Florida near Ft. Lauderdale and it was fab too. Enjoy your time, it is a gorgeous place!
I would love to get a pair of running tights from Lululemon!
Being a canuck who loves to run outdoors, I have had my eye on the lulu running gloves with the mitts that pull over for added warmth. They also have a pocket which is handy for kleenex!
Wow! What a gorgeous tote!!!!!! I have been looking for one since it is always snowing I hate just carrying my bag to and from yoga!
Anything from lulu would top my wish list, but I really want a pair of shorts for hot yoga! I drip in sweat and I need some sweat-wicking magic!
pair of groove pants :)
I would LOVE any of the yoga pants fo’ sho’!! Never been to Florida but you should definitely ask Jenna, she would know :)
Gooooooorgeous yoga bag!!! Prettiest one I’ve ever seen! I’d love any Lululemon loot since I don’t own any of their stuff. I adore yoga pants, though, and I saw a very cute sport cardi. I love that most of it can easily transition from yoga workout to errand running without looking like a gym rat. You’re much more generous than I would be if that showed up at my doorstep!
Ooo that bag is so nice. Its now on the top of my Lululemon wishlist.
I would definitely travel to Miami if you have time. There so much to do there. Naples is a nice place as well. Have fun!
That is THE most gorgeous bag ever!!! It’s hard to pick one thing, but I’d love to try a Lululemon running skirt. I think they are gorgeous. You are such a sweetie to offer this bag up as a give away.
The Tracker jacket is amazing! Very sweet of you to give away such a cute bag!
Love your blog and if you can make it to Dry Tortugas National Park in the Keys it is really beautiful.
i would love to own the sport cardi! :D
I first want to say…I just love your blog…I have been a daily reader since the fall….this is my first comment though…
I have never heard of Lulumon but after checking out their website, I can see why everyone is in love with their stuff. Being a girlie who has been blessed in the “chest” department…I would LOVE to try their “Ta Ta Tamer” sports bra! :)
The yoga tote is adorable…I’d love to be the winner of such a cute and stylish tote! Thanks for parting with it:)
ooo, that bag is gorgeous! they have so much great stuff on their site, but i love the groovy run short the most. i’m going to have to add it to my bday list :)
That is quite the pretty bag. I’m not sure what would be my number 1, if not that…
I’m coveting a long hoodie from Lulu, but all I see that they have lately is short hoodies :(
I would love to win that tote. Lule lemon anything is at the top of my list
The gratitude wrap all the way!
I wasn the ta ta tamer bra- it looks fabulous!!
Thanks for such a generous giveaway!!
I really want one of their comfy yoga jackets!! It’s going to be my reward if I complete the Core Fusion challenge this month.
I really want their relaxed fit crop! They look so comfy and cute!
That tote is the thing i want the most from the line!
And i think you must visit Siesta Key beach when you go to Florida. Most beautiful sand you will ever see. Been going there since i was a child..
I’m a little obsessed with Lululemon. I waited WAY to long at the big sale in Hamilton in the fall…definitely worth it! I would LOVE some Lulu running tights!
I never enter contests, but I would LOVE to win this bag!!!
ANY product would be great to have/try…it’s all too expensive for a poor graduate student :(
Love Lulu- I really would love a new pair of yoga pants! Love the tote!
I’d LOVE the “Leader of the Track” jacket from lulu!
I reccommend the Tampa Aquarium! It’s awesome in FL!
I’ve gotta check out this lulu stuff – it looks amazing!
Call me boring, but I’d go for the All Sport Bra. I need to get some new ones asap!
First, and most importantly, you MUST create a Wittle cam… what a great idea :)
Secondly, eyeing the classic Power Y tank, as it would be perfect for both climbing AND yoga!
I will take anything Lulu b/c I just started yoga. Are yawl doing Disney? Also, there’s Sea World. Then Sanibel Island has the best shells. Florida has tons of stuff to do.
LOVE LULULEMON!!! I have one pair of lululemon pants and I have to say they make my butt look especially fabulous bootylicious (as my husband says!) So I have been thinking of investing in a new light zip-up jacket or pullover. No lulu here in rural ontario but hoping to get to a store soon or check out stuff online, free shipping! That bag looks amazing. PS – just got my glo bars and loving the empower flavour…glo-licious. :)
WOW that truly is an exquisite bag. Honestly, I do not own anything from Lulemon because it is sorta out of my budget. For the past week I would have to say the pullover hoodie looks ideal since the weather in Florida has been freezing. I hope you come to Tampa or at least have a meetup around here. The gulf coast is the best during that time of year.
I own not one piece of lulumon products but I am in desparate need of yoga pants! would die for those!
you are a very generous gal giving that bag away!
sign me up…
647 comments HOLY YOGA BAG. the entire blogosphere landed on your blog!
Hey girl! been following you somewhat silently for a while now, but now, I am speaking UP! that is a fantastic lulu bag. they just opened a store in my city- Philly, but I KNOW going in there would be just too detrimental ;-) I want that new bag becuase, i know this is personal, but my BEST friend was my yoga instructor. She inspired me to start my practice and to do my best always. Unfortch we had a MAJOR falling out and will not be talking again. This had turned me off to Yoga, although I still integrate some poses into my new running training, and I really want to get back out there and find myself a studio. I think this bag would TOTALLY make me do it. True story, by the way. You are awesome. Sorry I have no destination ideas for FLA other than the typical south beach, (becuase we always go to see my grandma- you could go check out Hollywood FLA, I guess heehe) but if you DO go SB, stay at the Victor. It is sooo cool. YOu and HUsband would love it.
I love the Run: Hills pullover in pink sooo cuteee
Amazing!!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!
I think what I NEED the most right now would be some outdoor running pants AND a sports bra. I’ve been layering my capris over leggings… it makes for an awkward run. And, I’ve been using the same sports bra for about 5 years and it is just NOT working anymore!! lol!!
The Groove pants are WAY up on my list!!
TaTa tamer for the win!
p.s. You’ll be down in FL in a somewhat peak time. Beaches are lovely then but crowded. In alternative medicine/bodywork land: the Barral Institute is down there. I took a Visceral Manipulation course with them–completely changed my relationship with my abdominal organs. Highly recommended if that’s your thing. In any case, should be a welcome break from winter. Have fun!
p.p.s. I’m excited I found you blog Angela. Looking forward to reading more!
Oooh, love that bag! Next lululemon purchase is a toss-up between the sport cardi or tracker jacket. Thanks for the giveaway!
My next purchase will be a tata tamer or some running gear :)
If you have a chance to get to Stuart Island in Florida it beautiful!
Next purchase would be a new sports bra, mine are somehow to big :S I just bought them like two weeks ago and have lost no weight but idk lmfao:P
ps. SEA WORLD!!
I just found your site and I love it! As for lululemon, I’ve actually never walked into a store because it’s too pricey for me. I’m a mom who just can’t bring herself to spend that much on herself. But I love their hoodies… see them everywhere.
Looking forward to exploring your site more. Have a great day!
It’s a great looking bag
