Wine, Then Yoga

in All Posts

What a fun and busy day!  This afternoon, I spoke to some middle schoolers about Operation Beautiful, Fat Talk Free Week, and Photoshopping issues, and the Husband supervised the delivery of our new living room furniture.  HereÒ€ℒs a sneak peek!  πŸ™‚


Post-speech snack of Greek yogurtÒ€¦


And a quick dinner of toasty bread, a tofu, and roasted vegetables


This was the HusbandÒ€ℒs first attempt at making tofu, and it came out pretty well!  He pressed it and then put it on the griddle with some BBQ sauce.  It ended up tasting pretty good (I wish he had made more!).


I woofed it down because I had to rush toÒ€¦


A fun BLEND (blogger-friend) party at Lululemon Charlotte!  I got to see lots of old friends and meet new ones, too!


FeÒ€ℒlix brought her oh-so-handsome little man, Elijah.  I then proceeded to steal him from her and whisper sweet nothings in his ears.  He liked my necklace, I think.  πŸ™‚



My ovaries hurt.


Then, everyone tried on some Lululemon gear and we took pictures for their Facebook fan page.  In the spirit of the Responsible Spending Challenge, I left my credit card at home on purpose.  :)  However, I REALLY liked the gear I tried on.

We drank a little wine while we mingled and chatted!

I had a glass and a half or so.


I can always count on Nicole for wine consumption!


And some crackers + hummus:


If you can believe it, we then did yoga.  Downward dog was a little more interesting after 1.5 glasses of wine, but it was actually quite relaxing.  We yogaed for about 20 minutes. 



All in all, a really fun night.  I love having fun activities on work nights.  Looking forward to getting together with friends really breaks up the monotony of the work week.

    Love that Scoop Neck! Very flattering. πŸ™‚ Almost makes me wish I lived in Charlotte – how fun!

    P.S. I can’t wait to see the full new living room set up! I want it all, no teasers. πŸ˜‰

  • holly @ couchpotatoathlete October 20, 2010, 9:32 pm

    What a fun night! I bet yoga is pretty fun after a few glasses of wine!

    I really like the top you have one — the neckline is very pretty and looks really comfortable.

    And I like your new living room rug (well, what I can see of it!)

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey October 20, 2010, 9:33 pm

    That sounds like a fun night – cute clothes!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat October 20, 2010, 9:36 pm

    What a fun night! Those roasted veggies look divine.

  • Lily @ Lily's Health Pad October 20, 2010, 9:39 pm

    That BLEND party looks like a blast! Little Felix is adorable. And it cracks me up that he made your ovaries hurt.

  • Heather October 20, 2010, 9:40 pm

    that looks so fun, I wish we had something like that here. The store looks awesome. i would have come!

  • Alexa @ The Girl In Chucks October 20, 2010, 9:43 pm

    Lululemon stuff is so cute. I wish their prices were a little friendlier to my budget though.

  • Karen @ Not Just Celery October 20, 2010, 9:43 pm

    Oooo I LOVE Lululemon! I am not quite as responsible as you when it comes to restraining myself from their clothes! I actually just bought the scoop tank you had on in that pattern! So cute! Looks like a fun night!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite October 20, 2010, 9:43 pm

    I can only imagine how fun, i mean interesting, yoga is after some booze πŸ˜‰

  • Lauren @ Team Giles October 20, 2010, 9:46 pm

    LOVE the top you tried on. Its super cute. Do you know which one it is?

  • Mary October 20, 2010, 9:48 pm

    That is such a cute tank top you have on! I wish lulu wasnt so darn expensive!

  • Stacey October 20, 2010, 9:50 pm

    It was fun! Glad I got to see you again πŸ™‚ Lemme know if you wanna go run sometime!

  • Jamie @ Food in Real Life October 20, 2010, 9:53 pm

    I know you’re trying to save money and all…but that top looks amazing on you!

    • Caitlin October 20, 2010, 9:56 pm

      don’t enabbbbble me!!! LOL

  • Hope October 20, 2010, 9:58 pm

    What a fun sounding night! Esp the yoga-after-wine, that would have been a sight!
    I love that you go and speak at Middle School about Operation Beautiful – I think that it’s inspiring how much you help young girls to feel better about themselves. I only wish there was something similar when I was at school. You’re an inspiration Caitlin.
    Oh, and Elijah is goooooorgeous!!!

  • tina October 20, 2010, 9:59 pm

    wine, then yoga… sounds interesting.. more power to you!!!

    hmmm if only i could remember to leave my plastic at home….

  • Dori October 20, 2010, 10:00 pm

    I know this isn’t what you want to hear with your responsible spending challenge, but that top is REALLY flattering on you.

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef October 20, 2010, 10:02 pm

    what a cute baby!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine October 20, 2010, 10:05 pm

    You’re a smart cookie for leaving the credit card at home. I really need to use that trick. And I hear you on the baby talk…seriously, I’m only 20 and I just want a whole brood already!!

  • Keri October 20, 2010, 10:07 pm

    I love that rug (from West Elm, right?). I’ve wanted it for forever. Can’t wait to see your new living room!

  • Alayna @ Thyme Bombe October 20, 2010, 10:09 pm

    WANT Lululemon gear! Wish I could afford it, I’m sure it’s worth the pricetag but still makes me wince.

  • meagan October 20, 2010, 10:09 pm

    That sounds awesome! Wine + yoga just belong together. Plus, Lulemon has beautiful gear.

  • Laurie October 20, 2010, 10:10 pm

    Trying to imagine down dog on 1.5 glasses of wine. I think I’d be falling on my dogged arse.

  • Krystina (Organically Me) October 20, 2010, 10:11 pm

    I wish Lulu wasn’t so expensive because I love it so much!

  • AllieNic @Frisky Lemon October 20, 2010, 10:14 pm

    Ditto on the expensivity of Lulu…I LOVE it and I want some groove pants so bad…

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write October 20, 2010, 10:22 pm

    fun! Trying on clothes, hanging with the girls, and yoga. That is just awesome!

  • Heidi - apples under my bed October 20, 2010, 10:26 pm

    “My ovaries hurt” πŸ™‚
    What a fun, random night! Love it.
    Heidi xo

  • Krista October 20, 2010, 10:27 pm

    I don’t know what it is Caitlin but these last few days you have looked so calm/happy in all your photos, almost like you’re glowing! It looks good on you πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:26 am

      thanks πŸ™‚ i’m not really sure what it is either.

      • Marisa October 21, 2010, 12:24 pm

        Hmmmm…’s that family planning device you have going again? πŸ˜‰

        • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 12:27 pm

          Oh man….

          Don’t worry, I’m not pregnant!!

  • Rachel @ EatMoreMeatLess October 20, 2010, 10:29 pm

    What a nice night! I’m not surprised your husband made some great tofu – you love bbq sauce!!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday October 20, 2010, 10:32 pm

    Oh I can’t eimagine doing yoga after drinking. Especially wine.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday October 20, 2010, 10:32 pm

    Oh I can’t imagine doing yoga after drinking. Especially wine.

  • Callie @ Callieflower Kitchen October 20, 2010, 10:46 pm

    I love the lulu top you were wearing! I’ve looked at it before but unfortunately I don’t have the boobs to carry it off, but it looks great on you! πŸ˜‰ lol

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:26 am

      Lululemon clothing has the impact of making everyone’s boobies look awesome.

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) October 20, 2010, 10:50 pm

    What a fun night indeed!!!!

  • Lana October 20, 2010, 10:51 pm

    You look amazing in those workout clothes! what a great, wine and friends…doesn’t get any better than that!!

  • diana October 20, 2010, 10:55 pm

    wine then yoga?! hhaha.. i would totally lose my balance!!

  • carlee October 20, 2010, 11:03 pm

    omgosh thats so funny! like Diana said i would totally no be able to balance myself! Looks like a really fun night!

  • Clare @ Fitting It All In October 20, 2010, 11:04 pm

    The workout top you are wearing looks FANTASTIC on you! But good job leaving the credit card at home:)

    And I love playing with little babies…I am in no position to have kids so its great to get all the fun time but then give them back to their mom’s when they are fussy πŸ˜‰

  • kyla October 20, 2010, 11:05 pm

    hahaha that comment “my ovaries hurt” made me laugh out loud!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 20, 2010, 11:05 pm

    That little one is too cute! I am a sucker for cheeks and he has some cute ones! Looks like a fun evening.

  • erica October 20, 2010, 11:11 pm

    tipsy yoga!
    btw, how was that las rocas wine? i have that exact bottle in my kitchen (thank you gift) and haven’t tried it yet.

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:31 am

      it was pretty good! im an equal opportunity drinker though.

  • maria @ Chasing the Now October 20, 2010, 11:25 pm

    I’m pretty sure I would be incapable of yoga after wine. πŸ™‚

  • Camille October 20, 2010, 11:33 pm

    What fun!
    I’m not a fan of yoga… but tipsy yoga I think I can get behind πŸ™‚

  • Amanda October 20, 2010, 11:36 pm

    That Scoop Neck tank is great – It makes it through my rotation at least once a week. The cut and colour are super flattering on you. I recommend waiting for a sale. If you’re patient enough, it can be well worth it!

  • adriana October 20, 2010, 11:39 pm

    omg! my heart SHATTERED when I saw you holding that baby!

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:31 am


  • Anna S @ History Running Girl October 20, 2010, 11:41 pm

    Wow such cute clothes! I wish I had a lulu in my town. I’m too scared to buy exercise clothes online.

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing October 20, 2010, 11:41 pm

    Does it get better than wine and yoga?!
    And I can’t wait to see your new furniture!

  • Ashley October 20, 2010, 11:46 pm

    Wine + yoga = best idea ever!

  • Kimberly_FeLix October 20, 2010, 11:56 pm

    It was nice to meet you. I think Eli liked you as much as you liked him… you should be friends. πŸ™‚

  • Amber K October 21, 2010, 12:02 am

    What a fun time!

    Oh my gosh, Elijah is such a cutie! I would have totally stolen him for awhile too. Luckily my best friend has year old twins (and two older kids) that I get to steal sometimes. πŸ˜‰

  • Leah @ Why Deprive? October 21, 2010, 12:06 am

    I like that turquiose top a lot!

    Yoga after wine is an interesting idea . . . I’ve gone for a run after (too much) wine. That wasnt a good idea. Yoga seems a little smarter. πŸ™‚

  • Katy October 21, 2010, 12:38 am

    Sounds like you had a great night! I would love to have something like that with some of my friends, but I’m a college student, and many of my peers don’t even workout!!! They think I’m crazy to run 5k’s and think I’m even crazier to run a half- marathon in January! I’ll show them. πŸ˜‰

    Yoga is something that I have always wanted to try, but I’m afraid because I’m not too flexible! I’m afraid I’m going to fall over or get stuck! πŸ™‚

  • Moni'sMeals October 21, 2010, 1:09 am

    Now that is my type of night! Lucky you.
    I am impressed on your husbands Tofu, for his first time, well done! Not so sure my sweet honey could pull that off. After all he is know to burn popcorn ALMOST everytime. πŸ˜‰
    You all look FAB in the lulu gear!

  • Marina October 21, 2010, 1:18 am

    Elijah is so adorable! πŸ™‚
    Yoga after wine actually sounds like an awesome relaxing idea :)) and fun!

  • maya @ finding balance in tokyo October 21, 2010, 2:28 am

    I think I have to be the only person to have never set foot in a Lululemon. Curse my geographical difficulties!

  • Katie October 21, 2010, 6:19 am

    Totally unrelated to your post, but my brother just adopted a dog who looks JUST LIKE James. He’s a daschund-mini pinscher mix. Just had to share. πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:32 am

      I want to see a pic!!!

  • Pure2raw twins October 21, 2010, 6:52 am

    It was great to see you again! And we have to go get drinks again soon!!

  • Katie @ Keepingupwithkatie October 21, 2010, 7:12 am

    Thank you so much for organizing a great evening. Came out with some new friends anddd a hot half marathon skirt! πŸ˜‰ All in a day’s work..

  • Emily October 21, 2010, 7:22 am

    I looove the idea of wine and yoga…two of life’s best things together! Smart idea on leaving the credit card at home…lulu lemon is dangerous like that!

  • eatmovelove October 21, 2010, 7:43 am

    A night out cures all…but wine and yoga? Who knew!!

    But then again – wine goes with anything πŸ™‚

  • lisasfoods October 21, 2010, 7:48 am

    Very cool. How was the event organized? I love ideas like this.

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:21 am

      me and the lululemon manager got together and planned it! i bet your local lululemon would do it too.

  • Sarah October 21, 2010, 7:50 am

    Wow, that top looks amazing on you!! I wish I was wealthy so I could just buy it for you as a thank you for all the positivity you bring to my life via your blog πŸ™‚ Cue “I wanna be a billionaire so freakin’ bad…”

    But since I’m a grad student/nonprofit employee, I figure a compliment is the next best thing πŸ™‚ You are a beautiful person, Caitlin!

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:21 am

      thank you so much sarah πŸ™‚ that is really nice.

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman October 21, 2010, 8:30 am

    That top is so cute on you. I think you need to watch it in case it goes on sale. I love the scoop neck.

  • Alison (Ali on the Run) October 21, 2010, 8:50 am

    What a great event! Lululemon is my favorite.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 21, 2010, 9:09 am

    Good call on leaving the credit card at home! Lululemon is way too tempting!

  • Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) October 21, 2010, 9:13 am

    SO sad I missed this… can we do it again on a different night??

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 9:23 am


  • Gracie (complicated day) October 21, 2010, 9:35 am

    I want to eat that child up! Cheeks first!

  • Cyndi @ Weightless Life October 21, 2010, 10:02 am

    That looks like such a fun night! I’m jealous.

  • Sami October 21, 2010, 10:05 am

    LOVE that top you’re wearing! soooo cute!

  • April @ Crazy Fabulous Life October 21, 2010, 10:14 am

    That looks awesome! Are non-Charlotte NC’ers welcome at such events? πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin October 21, 2010, 10:15 am

      of course!

  • Leigh October 21, 2010, 11:54 am

    I have the tank top that you tried on and it is super comfortable! It doesn’t have quite enough support for the ladies while I run, but great for biking or 30 day shred.

  • Melissa October 21, 2010, 12:46 pm

    I can agree with fun activities during the work week; it definitely makes the week go by with much more of a purpose and fullfilment.

  • Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion October 21, 2010, 1:22 pm

    That looks so fun! I love the top you have on, I want a running jacket from Luluemon so badly!!!

  • Allison K October 21, 2010, 5:30 pm

    “My ovaries hurt” that is EXACTLY what I say when I see my husband with our 9 month old nephew.
    We aren’t trying right now, but when I see him play with the nephew I just want to procreate!

  • Lindsay October 21, 2010, 8:25 pm

    So much fun last night!! Can’t wait for more blogger parties πŸ™‚

    The tofu looks YUM!


  • Jolene ( October 21, 2010, 10:17 pm

    That baby is SO stinkin’ cute!!!!! OMG!!!
