Not technically summer yet, but it definitely feels like it in Florida. These are calling my name:
But for $245 that would be a NO. I have a $40 coupon from DSW that’s about to burn a hole in my pocket and I’m sure I’ll have no trouble finding a pair there. 😉
We went to Epcot yesterday which is the first time I’d been there in about 10 years. Good times, but a few of those rides definitely need a facelift. We went on this simulator movie thing in which a still mostly un-plastic-surgeried Michael Jackson was our pilot (!) on some kind of space odyssey in a jet that looked like a butterfly. Other things that made an appearance: Alf, the moon walk, and a crotch grab for good measure. There was also a lot of high waisted spandex and music with lasers involved. Welp, glad that cost us $80!
We did have a really good dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s Grand Cafe in Downtown Disney, but that’s all I can really say about it… just good, but not great. I had a really nice seared salmon on sunchoke puree with lobster butter sauce and perfectly grilled buttery vegetables. No complaints about mine. But, I take points off the experience because the place was WAY too bright (like train station bright) and Adrien’s meal was basically a Shake n’ Bake pork chop. ‘Sup with that?!
We had a super active weekend with TONS of walking, standing and long car rides. My hips were creaking by the time we got home last night and in case you find yourself in a similar predicament after your next road trip, here are some fantastic hip-openers from the deep recesses of my yogi heart <3:
Hindi Squat: turn the toes out, drop the hips towards the heels, press the elbows into the knees to open the hips. Lift the chest forward and up and tuck the hips down.
Kneeling lunge: align the knee over the ankle and stretch the back leg far away from the other. Press the weight forward and down to open the hips. You’ll feel it in whichever hip is extending back. Repeat both sides.
Pigeon: square the hips off to face in front of you and press the chest forward and up. Repeat both sides.
Now your rest stops will be much more entertaining. 😉
Discuss! Favorite thing to do at a rest stop. And go!
