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.
- Also feel free to leave ideas of where we should travel/road trip in Florida!
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.
haha I would love it if you hid a camera to show eric’s antics! how dare he try to sabotage WMM2 ;)
Congrats on your Florida trip! I’ve never been to the Naples area, but my family loves to travel to Destin.
I love Lululemon’s “Sport Cardi” as well as the “Run:Hills Pullover”. Such adorable stuff!
Oh my gosh! I love that tote! I do yoga at work and would love to show that off on the train in the mornings! My favorite item right now is their underwear, especially the thongs…so comfy!!!
I am dying for a Lulu Remix hoodie! And I’d love that tote :)
I was just browsing last night and really want the run: windsprint pant II. BUT now that bag has gone to the top of my wish list! :)
I want to get the groove pant- it would make my butt look amazing!!
I would love anything Lululemon – it all looks cute, comfy and functional! But I really want the Sport Cardi. Something to keep me warm on the way to my workout and looking super cute if I want to go meet friends after!
I am an unconditional fan of Lululemon since the day I got my very first lulu pant… Can you believe that I am still wearing them after over 5 years and they look like new still (and believe me, I washed those hundreds of times!)! I am currently eyeing a post-training jacket or/and a running pullover… and the yoga bag!! :)
Everything from Lulemon I absolutely covet! But especially their hoodies–so cute and functional!
In Florida.. I suggest you go to Siesta Beach, in Sarasota. The sand is sooo fine and blindingly white. Gorgeous!
I have never owned anything made by Lululemon and would love to start my collection with this lovely bag! :D
Oh my gosh, it would have to be that darling tote – especially since I don’t have anything to carry my mat in. Would love to get my hands on the tea as well! I was looking for it when I saw it here but I live in Minnesota so I am not able to buy it :( (they don’t sell it online)….
A contest – what fun! Your website is getting me through this long harsh Minnesota winter – thank you!
I am an absolute lulu lover. This sports bra look fab – http://shop.lululemon.com/All_Sport_Bra/pd/cl/2543/np/520/p/1813.html and of course, the yoga tot :)
#1 on my wishlist from lululemon.com is the “ta-ta tamer” in blue!
I am beginning to train for a ten mile run in Philadelphia, the Broad Street Run. Unfortunetly, most of my funds went to ultra supportive shoes to ward off shin splints and 10 yoga classes for strength building and relaxation! The ta-ta tamer will be my next purchase, and one less thing to worry about while training…
I have never been to Florida, either. So, I can’t give you any touristy attractions to visit. I hear that Disney World is kinda a big deal, ha!
I really want/need a new pair of yoga pants from Lulu.
I have a feeling your going to get a lot of responses to this giveaway! By the way, your website turned me on to Lululemon in the first place and I would like to say shame on you for making me so obsessed over clothing I can’t afford! :)
Right now I am really wishing for a pair of Groove Pants, some Wunder Unders and Spirit Tights. Oh, and the Winter Run Glove. There is no way I can pick just one thing.
The Sport Cadi for sure. Have fun in Florida.
i don’t own anything from lululemon. but i pine away for things from there. i just couldn’t get over the price. but now that i’m making working out a priority maybe i’ll splurge a bit! :)
top of my want list are those groove pant*r pants! my bf always teases me that i have ugly gym clothes :/ maybe he’ll help me out to get some nice one =)
FLORIDA: i just got back a few months ago from a family vacation we went to all the disney parks and sea world! i definitely recommend going to one. i think its a cute thing for couples. my favorites were epcot and sea world.
I love the Luluemon pants!!! I heard they are awesome. You are going to have so much fun in Florida! Naples is AMAZING and gorgeous. Definitely check out the beaches and downtown area! :)
I adore the groove pants! =)
http://www.acerentacar.com/ super cheap car rental. I know they have a location at ft lauderdale airport, not sure about Naples. There is an outlet mall near Naples that is fab!
I love everything about Lulu of course! And the fact that they are Canadian is an added bonus. But I would love a pair of the groove pants, I only have cropped pants and capri pants from Lulu so full length pants would be great! And of course the yoga tote!!
The skid mat is at the top of my wish list behind that tote
Let me know if your Florida trip will include DisneyWorld. I got connections.
OH I would LOVE that!!! There are no Lulu near me :(
As for florida, I would suggest some R & R. Do some touristy stuff but hit some beaches and just veg for a change!
The Remix Lulu hoodie is on the top of my list! There is no Lulu near me either :( But I really want to try their stuff!
Also, SO wish I lived in Florida … wanna take a vacation to Wisconsin? No? Bummer :)
I love their pants! But can never bring myself to buy a pair… :(
i’d love the wunder under crops for running and yoga – maybe one day ;) but everything else i have from there [with the exception of my yoga mat] i absolutely love!
I really wanted the Define jacket in black but my local store was sold out of them and they aren’t available online either :(
I’d love to try their sports bras. I’m small-chested and it’s so hard to find something that fits me and yet offers decent support!
My husband and I are actually thinking about a trip to Florida next month and plan on visiting Tigers training camp, Cocoa Beach (Atlantic coast), Tarpon Springs (Gulf coast) and maybe St. Augustine for the history. Any of those would be fun. My friends and I also did Pleasure Island once, which is fun if you’re into clubs and dancing.
Oh my goodness! That bag is gorgeous :-) I’d love to have a pair of Lululemon running tights. They look great, but I’ve heard they suit their function quite well, too!
SO JEALOUS of your Florida trip – I visit about once a year and stay at North Redington Beach, just north of St. Pete’s. You definitely should visit St. Petes’ – picture a beautiful, quiet white sand beach. It’s breathtaking!
Naples’ girl here… Here is what I suggest…
Naples Peir (my fav. beach in Naples and close to shops and great places to eat)
Naples Sunset Cruise
Airboat ride in the Everglades (about a 20min drive to Everglades City) cheap and totally worth it
Sarasota is about an hour away – Siesta Key is the best beach in FL
Hope that helps!
I would LOVE the scoop neck tank. Adorable! I’ve never been to Florida but I hear Destin is gorgeous!
I’m in the market for some reversible Groove pants!!! That’s a great tote, by the way!
WOW love the yoga bag…..I absolutely want the “Gather Together Jacket”. I’ve tried it at the store and it’s SO nice!! I’ve never been to Florida but I’ll love to go one day!
I desperately need some new lulu pants (old ones have holes where there shouldn’t be holes from being worn so much), but with the university budget — won’t be happening for a while. I love their run line as well.
Anddddd I have never been to Florida, but what a great idea to cruise around the ocean. I have heard that Miami is great, and the shopping and nightlife is even better!
wanna start getting into yoga! this would be a huge push in the right direction!!
The best thing you could own from Lululemon is a TaTa Tamer!
We all know without one of those bad baoys on working out wouldnt be comfortable ;)
I would love the bag, black and pink are my faves! I love the lululemon yoga pants, they last forever. And I am not much help with Florida. I have only been to disney!
What a fantastic giveaway! I love all things Lululemon-but the one thing that I’d love to have is one of their hoodies. They’re absolutely beautiful, and I hear warm and comfortable, but I just can’t justify paying that much for a sweater when I already have a closet full of them. I would love that bag though-it looks absolutely beautiful!!
My favorite is Groove Crop. It’s the perfect length so that I feel comfortable but don’t overheat!
This is such a great giveaway–thanks for thinking of your loyal readers! I would love love love to have a white remix hoodie, or any of the tanks… I had a Lulu GC on my X-mas list and didn’t get it… I may just have to go credit card crazy one of these days! I also love the bag, it is totally gorgeous! Have a great day!
the run:speed short is so cute! and the run:hills jacket is amaze :] LOVE LULULEMON!
That yoga bag is #1 on my list!
I love love love everything lululemon, but my fav are the Ultra Short II. They are the cutest running shorts with a back zip pocket for money/ID and hidden front pockets for gels. Perfect for race day or long runs!
You must take a drive down the Keys, all the way to Key West (I used to live there). It’s definitely a fun spot you have to go to at least once in your life. If it’s not too hot, you can even do a run around the entire island!
Lululemon. I loooove their Still Pants. This is my story about still pants. I own three pairs.
I just moved back from two years in India, where I worked at an international boarding school in the office of guest and donor relations. Almost everyday I wore my still pants to work with a long shirt called a Kurti. It looked great. I received many compliments about the pants from the international guests and local staff. Still pants were both casual and dressy enough for that particular work environment.
Yet, still pants are sports oriented pants, so there has got to be more about my love for still pants than just wearing them to work. One of the reasons I liked to wear them all the time is because I walked EVERWHERE in India. I walked to the main area of town. I walked to the top op the mountain. I walked with guests visiting the school. I walked with my children. It did not matter on the day, weather or time. I walked. Still pants meant I was prepared for any physical activity and looked professional doing it.
I love the yoga mat bag and I think it go smashingly with my still pants. (Thanks for being willing to share the bag!)
P.S. Angela, we just finished our order of globars. We will have to order more but I wanted to tell you that the coffee chocolate bars were a huge family favourite. As always I love the blog. I read it every day.
that bag is stunning (much like you :)
i would TOTALLY rock the Blissful Yoga Pack if I had to choose just 1 thing :)
I would love a Lulu full-zip hoodie.
Florida sounds great! I plan to go during the March break for the very first time. We’re driving down.
On my wish list are the Brisk Run Gloves in purple! Purple is my fav color and I could really use some nice running gloves in this cold Boston winter!
I usually go to Naples every March with my fiance and my parents. We will be missing it this year though, as we are getting married on June 12, and are saving up vacation time for the honeymoon! I would recommend going down to Marco Island for a day though. It is beautiful there, and you can even rent a boat and cruise around the whole island!!!
Oh my gosh, there is so much that I want. I currently don’t have anything of their’s, but I would really like the “Grove Pant “R””, very nice. I am hoping to make it to a Lululemon store sometime while traveling because sadly there aren’t any near me!
I Love ….love…..love their yoga pants and hoodies.
I have been working really hard to get into a pair of the yoga pants….I made a deal with my self when I hit my goal I would treat myself to a pair.
A trip to florida sounds like a great idea
I would LOVE to have the sport cardi from lululemon.
