True Friendship

I had an amazing weekend with some of my most favorite people in the world. Three beautiful ladies that fill me with joy on a daily basis. I don’t say that lightly, we literally talk every day! We have all been through a lot these past couple years and we have grown closer because of it. It’s not always easy sharing the good, the bad and the ugly with people and girls can be ruthless. But not these ones, they are some of the best.

Can I just talk about “real” friendship for just a moment. I feel as I have gotten older and I have come to a new season in my life (motherhood) I have learned a lot about who I am as a friend and what it is that I look for in a friend. I went through a friend break up this year and it was a rough one. I know that everything happens for a reason, but while I was going through it…it SUCKED! Now months later coming out of it, it has taught me who I am and what true friendship looks like. I am actually thankful for it!

I am blessed with some wonderful community of friends and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I know that a lot of people are just a one on one kind of friend and having multiple friends scares them or it is just not their thing and that’s cool. I love having friends in my life to hold me accountable, to lift me up when I am down, to laugh with, to cry with, to tell me to suck it up and keep going, to encourage me in my marriage, tell me that I need to slow down, challenge me as a mother, and to sweat with of course!!

Friendship isn’t always easy because let’s face it we are HUMANS and humans fail. I think friendship is about give and take and quite honestly not judging one another and letting each other be who they are without feeling bad about themselves. True friends are intentional and put one another first over themselves. I am not perfect at friendship by no means. But I am beyond thankful for the friends that I have and I pray that this year and the years to come that we grow closer in community with one another, because life with friends is sweeter and just more fun!

Last week I had the pleasure of attending my friend Whitney’s iPhone App launch party! She partnered up with the beautiful Kodi Kitchen, the creator of Best U Studio for her super fun Abs + Apps Launch Party in West HollyWood at the Naked Princess! I have always wanted to try a U Barre class, so naturally when I got the invitation I had to call my bestie who is a ballet instructor and invite her to join me! I wasn’t about to make a fool of myself without her 😉

Kodi led us in a rocking U Barre class with 8, 10, or 12 pound U Barres. If you have never felt a U Barre, they have the same texture as a kettle bell and now she even has ones that come in a gold finish..fancy…fancy! It was a lot hard than I was anticipating!

All of us ladies got to wear a Fabletics outfit! I have been dying to try out an outfit from them for a while now! If you haven’t heard, Fabletics is the super cute and affordable activewear line by Kate Hudson! I loved the back of my tank top and it fit quite comfortably. I think I should have gotten a small as it was a little looser than I am used to.

Danielle and I were both super sore from the workout the next day! Having to hold the U Barre the whole time while doing squats, lunges, abs and much more kept our arms and abs contracted the WHOLE TIME! The workout is a fusion of cardio, barre, pilates, and ballet moves, using the patented weighted U Barre to get those strong, toned arms!

After the class we enjoyed some of Whitney’s most popular recipes on her blog: Watermelon Caprese Salad,Skinny Chicken Salad Bites, and No-Bake Chocolate Truffles.

As well as some refreshing Health-Ade Kombucha  and chardonnay and champagne from One Hope Wine. I never would have thought of combining Kombuch with wine, what a great idea!

Danielle and I had such a great time! Thank you Whitney for the wonderful invite!

Question: Have you tried a U Barre class or any Barre class? I am excited because we have a Barre workshop at the Refresh Summit this year!!!
