Weekend Getaway: Ithaca, NY

I'm super excited for this weekend! My mom and I are going on a yoga retreat in the Finger Lakes. My yoga studio is running a three-day weekend retreat including yoga classes, wine tasting around Lake Cayuga, and delicious dinners. We will be staying at La Tourelle Resort which looks lovely. Our room has a fireplace - what a luxury!

I can't wait to hit the road tomorrow and start our weekend! I promise to take lots of pictures to share with you when I get back.

Weekend Wrap-up

I was looking forward to Friday night dinner all day at work. Dave and I dined at the Sergeantsville Inn. The restaurant is in a cozy old stone building and we were lucky enough to snag one of the coveted fireside tables. I had pheasant and mushroom risotto - so good!

I woke up to snow on Saturday morning. I love the surprise of finding a snowy scene outside my bedroom window when I get up in the morning. I went to yoga, cleaned my house a bit, and treated myself to a new pair of moccasins. I've been spying a lot of cozy moccasins on blogs lately and I've been thinking about picking up a pair for a while. I chose a lovely yellow pair and they are so comfortable.

Dave made a delicious lasagna on Saturday night and we invited my parents over to eat with us. I love having dinner guests during these long, winter months (plus, they brought chocolate cake!).

Dave in action!
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend!

February Resolution: More Yoga

I really enjoyed working on my January resolution of cooking meals in my slow cooker more often. I discovered that I love that style of cooking (it makes dinner time so easy).

During the month of February I've resolved to practice more yoga. Currently, I attend yoga class once or twice a week, but I'd like to start practicing a bit more at home. My goal for February is to add two at-home practice sessions a week to my yoga workout. I'm going on a yoga retreat later this month, so this will help me to prepare for the daily yoga classes I'll be taking on the retreat.

I have a feeling that this is going to be a bit more difficult than using my slow cooker. Wish me luck!

P.S. Happy February!
