Oh, Happy Day

Shirt: Old Navy; Skirt: Citizens of Humanity; Shoes: Tory Burch; Purse: Purchased at Sundrop's Nails Spot; Earrings: H&M; Bracelet: Anthropologie
I took a Zumba class at my gym on Monday evening.  Might I just say, it is tons of fun because I get to shake and shimmy all across the dance floor to the likes of Ricky Martin. All the while, laughing at myself in the process, because this girl has no Spanish flava.  But speaking of Spanish flava, is it weird that the entire time I was zumba-ing, I had a serious craving for Mexican food?  I mean seriously, plop me in a booth and serve me chips and salsa!  I could have cared less that I was burning 200 calories, all I wanted to do was eat 500!  Well, my tummy's wish was granted.  Twice.  In less than 24 hours.  Dinner with the Hubbs last night and lunch today with the family.  Today however, was a special occasion because we welcomed the visit of my beautiful sister and her two daughters.  We have to make the most out of the little time we are given.  So, I am looking forward to sharing this time together, shopping, baking, painting their nails, giving tremendous amounts of kisses, sharing oodles of  love, and laughing.  A lot.  Family time is the best time.

Zumba is my kind of workout! Nothing makes me happier than having an excuse to bust some moves and feel sexy while working out, regular gym is not for me! ... So glad to learn you like Mexican food, I'd happily cook for you if you ever come down here! YOu look fierce and cute!

Ooh have fun with your family :) Family really is the best!
My sis-in-law is a zumba instructor and she told me that someone who regularly goes to zumba can burn up to 500-1000 calories in a class! So eat all the Mexican food you want ;)
