5. This blog post. I stumbled across Gina’s blog a few years ago through the Lululemon ambassador site. I was drawn to her style of writing and what her blog was all about.

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. It never seems long enough. Here are some photos from this week…
#Bookclub. Someone at work recommended this and it’s a great book! I highly recommend it to all women and moms.
#Hurtssogood. Foam rolling is back in my life. My legs are thanking me.
Home grown. Zucchini bread and pickles are in my future.
We spent the weekend at MKE Brew Fest, Brady Street Fest and helping my sister move. It was a great weekend, but as always, it went by so quickly!! I’m looking forward to the week, The Bacon Run and celebrating my cousin’s last single night out next weekend :-)
