What a week! Finn ran away to preschool with my heart. All moms know this feeling of unconditional protective mama bear love for our kids, and when they start to fly, gosh… that’s something even more fierce! He’ll do great this year, but Evie and I are going to miss him!
Ahhhh… well, to take your mind away from all the kiddos leaving home recently, barre3 has a great giveaway for one lucky reader! The premise of barre3 is simple: where ballet barre meets yoga and pilates. I love the concept of this workout. Barre3 evolves the dancer’s workout by combining the grace of the ballet barre with the wisdom of yoga and the strength of Pilates. Barre3 workouts are set to an upbeat soundtrack and follow a vigorous pace moving through a sequence of postures designed to shape and lift the entire body.
One lucky reader will receive a free 15-day online membership to barre3 which means you can try this workout in the comfort of your own home!
To enter, leave a comment on this post sharing your favorite workout: dance, yoga or pilates.

Fantastic. Yes, that is all. Seems fitting, right?
Fantastic Yum: We needed something a little sweet and a little salty earlier this week. You’ll love this simple change in prep that will bring a new dimension to your homemade p-corn. The kids and I dove into this healthy bowl for an afternoon snack and Justin and I may or may not have made seconds later that night to watch one of our shows! So simple. So friggin’ delicious!
Fantastic Repurpose: The ideas in this link are incredible. Seed starters, popsicle molds, holiday ornaments. Brilliant. Both my mom and mom-in-law use K-Cups. We’re in luck!
Fantastic Yogi Feet: Oh my dear goodness, I want to scream with cuteness! If you’re a regular yogi, you must, must, must get these and send me a picture. I have envy! Do you think people would laugh if I showed up to kickboxing with these bad boys??
Fantastic Birthday Surprise: I’m thinking of doing this for Finn next week as we ring in year FOUR! He’d go crazy!
Fantastic Mystery: No less than five people have told me about cotton candy grapes in the last week. Whaaaaa? The first time I heard about them I was convinced they had to be some GMO/science experiment, but the company claims they are a cross-breed grape and non-GMO. Have you had them?
Fantastic Look: I love, love, love the Peter Pan neckline. I love it so much, I bought the dress on the left for Evie and am strongly considering the dress on the right for me so we can be mom-dot twinsies. Did you ever dress like your mom? I always loved that!
Fantastic Thought: Isn’t this interesting. Would you consider a temporary tattoo for your child’s allergies?
Fantastic Reminder: Just go and do it already!
Fantastic Jam: In light of all the kids going back to school, I started thinking about this song. I kept thinking this week, “Finn, just stop growing up.” We want to keep our kids safe and happy as long as possible, even though it’s just not possible. Up into the air you go!
Have a fantastic weekend!
