I went to Sweat Yoga! Bikram Yoga :)

I've been going with Aimee to Bikram Yoga.  I've been five times now (going EVERY day! even in the morning sometimes!!  I took a vow to never exercise in the morning because I hate it - I think going anyway means I'm maturing.. lol)

I was told by my husband and even the teachers that I would hate the first time.  I thought I would too since the room is heated to 100ish degrees, BUT I actually really liked it!  Probably because with the buckets of sweat flowing out of me I really felt like I was cleansing my insides.  Knowing it's doing good helps me push through.  In my opinion normal yoga classes are much harder (posture wise) but the heat makes even simple moves hard.   I've since learned that I need to only sip water and breath in and out with my nose.  Those two things have helped A LOT!
They have an introductory rate for newcomers - 10 consecutive days unlimited classes for $20!  That's what I'm doing, and I'm halfway through it.  I feel myself improving each time and I'm loving it!  I also love the fact that I come out of there SOAKING WET!  :):)  The room stinks (although I don't notice it much now) and the ceiling fans in the room are just to taunt you..lol,  no...they turn them on at the end. :)

Aimee is doing the 30 day challenge, meaning she goes EVERY DAY for 30 days!
If she misses a day she doubles up on another day.  She is posting daily on Bikram Yoga's Facebook page.  Check it out and see how she's doing. (click on the Everyone tab to see her posts if you can't see them.)

Aimee will also post here every Monday.  Watch out this monday for a Bikram Yoga Giveaway!!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
