baby shower!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Anyone rocking some green clothes today?

Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to a baby shower for one of my clients! She’s welcoming her second boy and had a really fun afternoon with the usual baby shower games, an insanely delicious cake (hired through Instagram!), and a jaw dropping view of South Beach. The mom-to-be was bopping around the party in 5-inch heels!

She went with a paper crane theme and it was adorable…and really unique! Girl knows how to plan a party.

Alright, I have to have a brag moment for a sec–afternoons like this one remind me how much I enjoy my job. Being able to watch a pregnancy progress each week and helping the mother stay healthy throughout the process is so rewarding. I uncontrollably grin whenever a client reveals the sex of the baby and as the due date gets really close I’m on pins and needles waiting to hear the good news. So much fun.

In other news, the weekend flew by. Anyone else agree?! I have a little bit of a lighter week so I’m hoping to fit in more exercise. I realize I gotta seize the moment when I get free time, so I’m going to try to fit in some running, lifting, and Pure Barre. I’ll keep you posted on how my workouts actually progress.
