It’s finally time for the fourth and final HLS recap!
After the last session on Saturday I had a really short break before yoga.
I was so excited about this yoga class! Confession: I have never been to a studio yoga class before. There isn’t a studio in my town, so I only go to our gym yoga. And let me tell you, it is NOT the same. Subway sponsored us to go to Exhale to attend a core fusion yoga class. Core Fusion Yoga includes a cardio element and is fueled by upbeat and inspirational music. Oh, and the instructor was cuh-razy. And I liked it:) A lot.
There are no Chinese gongs at Gym One. Nor are there any wall ladders use for stretching (perfectly normal).
Love my new yoga buddies! I was freakin’ out Saturday because I didn’t know anyone going to yoga.
Let’s be real. I didn’t know anyone going to yoga, AND I didn’t know anyone going to the Mexican dinner I had signed up for that night.
Hi, I’m Candice, and I sometimes get scared of being awkward and having no friends. There, I said it.
So, like any normal person would do – I tweeted out a plea for friends during one of the sessions on Saturday. And the angel above in the blue dress was my twitter hero:)
I loved this yoga class. Oh, and they gave us free mats!
Which we had no other choice than to cart around for the rest of the night at said Mexican restaurant. Classy.
JT and I before yoga
After yoga, we dried our sweaty hair, applied new deodorant and rushed out the door to dinner!
I sat with this awesome blogger and we hit off right away! I love this girl. Cannot wait to go to NY to visit sometime.
It was a fun night of chattin’ up a storm, takin’ photos of our food…and eating! All the plates were for sharing.
vegetarian tacos – black bean hash, rajas poblanas,
crema fresca, crispy potatoes
flan de cajeta – goat’s milk caramel custard
Flan! I’ve never had flan before – it’s always been a dessert that I’ve only seen in the movies, lol. This caramel one was to die for! There were two other flavors brought to our table, but I nearly gagged on one of them, so I tried to lure the caramel one back down to our end;)
This meal was awesome – so many different new flavors. And I loved that everything was shared. I got to try so much, but I was able to walk our rather than roll out, so that was a bonus!
And that’s a wrap! About 4 hours later I was up and at ‘em, heading to the airport.
It was such a quick weekend…and I totally wish I could relive it! I’m so ecstatic about the new friends I made, and the twitter and blog fun that will ensue. HLS: the gift that keeps on givin’.
Hope to see ya at HLS 2011!
