If you are a fitness enthusiast, you know the Lululemon brand – it’s high end, luxurious, fashionable and expensive. Personally, I’ve only ever bought a skidless yoga mat cover and a few headbands from Lulu because I’m so incredibly frugal when it comes to buying things for myself. However, Jay and Wild Boy bought me a Lulu outfit for Mother’s Day and got me hooked. When I heard that Lululemon was having one of their Warehouse Sales (aka the #SoulCalCelebration Sale) in LA Convention Center, I couldn’t wait. Well, I went this past Friday and all I can say is:
and if by conquering you mean I waited in line for 4 hours, then yes, I most certainly did conquer. Read more
To lift your spirits a little after 9/11 I’m giving you some alliteration and a chronicle of the busy but amazing day I had last week. Only I could have bagels, bikes and Bjorn packed into a Sunday. It was a pretty fabulous day from start to finish!
Since moving to Los Angeles, my family has been on the quest for a good bagel. I’m sorry LA, you win with the weather but your bagels are just plain lousy. Jay has been schlepping suitcases full of Brooklyn bagels to LA with every business trip (nearly tipping the scales at the over 50 lbs mark more than a few times).
After talking about it for some time, Jay finally decided to try to roll the dice and attempt make his own bagels. The results were surprising! If you want to find out if water really is the all important ingredient, see Jay’s blog post.
Delicious homemade bagels.
I worked on a post for Workout Wednesday most of last night and instead of pushing through a blinding headache, I resolved to finish the post this morning and publish later today. Before I went to sleep I remembered that today was the anniversary of 9/11/01. The post that I was working on will be further delayed because reflecting and remembering is of utmost importance today.

I’m a New Yorker and I can remember the events of 9/11/01 as clear as the blue sky that canopied my city on that day. 9/11 changed my world and the entire world in so many ways. Read more
Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday (90′s Edition)!
Here’s my #confessyourunpopular opinion concerning the 1990′s – I didn’t (and still don’t) like Nirvana (hold your produce, please). Grunge rock was definitely the thing in the ’90′s and Kurt Cobain was the definitely the man leading the charge. I was sad when he committed suicide but I wasn’t unhappy that his band’s music was over (although not ’90′s related, I do like the Foo Fighters). However, I was most definitely a Pearl Jam fan!

You may have noticed there was no post on Friday. It was Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) on Thursday and Friday and I didn’t get a post written in time to publish. Perhaps getting myself organized should be one of the second group “New Year’s Resolutions” I get to make now?
I’ll be checking in on my #13in2013 goals at the end of this month but since it’s a New Year, I guess now is a good time to announce some new stuff so here goes: Read more
