Insanity Is An Appropriate Name

Hi from Florida! It's amazing here, and I am in love with Florida (though let's be honest... I've always been in love!). Though I will say that I am less than thrilled with the heat. Haha. I was enjoying the brisk air of Virginia. I guess I should just take advantage and go lay out by the pool. Lord knows this pale girl needs it! I am on vacation... Haha.

I landed last night and my bestie, Ellie, godbaby Akemi, and good friend Lance picked my booty up from the airport. After a fun journey trying to find each other in the airport, we were off! We went back to their house and hung out for a while, but I was beat! So I passed out before everyone, including my insomniac goddaughter. 

This morning Akemi and I were up before everyone, and she likes to play 'Catch Me'. Which she then runs around expecting you to chase her. She also likes to frog jump and kangaroo jump. None of these are acceptable to do alone, she requires participation from her godmama. I swear, keeping up with Akemi is an entire cardio workout!

We made smoothies this morning, and I thought they were kind of bland, but my best friend loves me enough to pretend to enjoy them. Akemi was very honest and said they were awful. Two year old have no clue how to be subtle... Haha. It was funny. We were also jumping on the trampoline later this afternoon, and she said 'Stop jumping. Get your water.' (My water bottle was right off the trampoline.) I asked if she wanted some water, and she said 'No, you get the water.' This was her way of telling me to stop jumping, she wanted the trampoline to herself. It was hilarious.

Ellie and I went for a run today. It was the first time in a while for Ellie running, so we cut it a little short at a mile and a quarter, but Ellie was a total beast. We were running pretty quickly, and she finished really strong. Plus, we then went back and did a P90X Insanity Pure cardio workout. We were destroyed after that. I mean, seriously. that ish is no joke. It kicked my butt from here back to Africa! I can't wait to do it again! :) 

I straightened my hair for the first time in 8 months today. I had no clue my hair was that long. It made me absurdly happy. (Of course, I'm about to chop it off on Friday.....haha) I also bought new makeup (I love Clinique!), so I felt super pretty today. We tried to go shopping today, but it involved a major toddler meltdown, so we decided to go home instead. You have to be flexible with two year olds, I'm learning! :) 

Tomorrow it's off to hang with my mama, and Monday I have an appointment to try on wedding dresses! I'm so excited! :) I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! :)
