Fast Out The Gate: 30 Minute Cardio Blast!

June 11, 2012

Hiiiiiiiiiii Y’all!!!

What’s up, Monday?!?!

Let’s get those hands up in the ay-er and wave ’em like you just don’t cay-er!!! Woop!

I hope your weekends were the Jam-Sauce! – filled with fun, friends, family, fabulous food and a cocktail or two! yes As I mentioned in Friday’s post, Honey Bunch and I got the heck out of the city in favor of a quiet, peaceful weekend up in Kent, Connecticut. Ay dios mio is it beauuuuuutiful up there! Really, it’s stunning! So lush and so green! We went for hikes up in Pond Mountain both Saturday and Sunday mornings, noshed on some delicious farm-to-table food, and really just did a whole lotta nothing! It was grande! Just the ticket to get me over my bluesy week…can’t you tell I’m in MUCH HIGHER spirits today?!?

Here are some photos from the getaway:

The Hikes @ Pond Mountain

Bananas, right?!?!

And here are some desserts we ordered at Community Table restaurant.

This is HAY ICE CREAM! HAY, as in haystacks! It was super yummy and had these little balls of shortbread-like cookie stuffed underneath that whipped layer…I went after those balls! 

This is the chocolate bed of mousse. This had an Oreo-like crust that was to-die for!

We killed both of these babies! Although it’s never been a struggle for me to polish off dessert! wink

Now, it’s time to MOVE ON and MOVE THOSE BOOTIES to TODAY’s BUN-BURNING routine!!!
