Need your opinions.

Is it bad to wear a shirt about wine to the gym?

My Big Fat Greek Wine Tank Top

Just wanted to sport my new Big Fat Greek Wine gear, that’s all.

I forgot to mention in my update last night one of the greatest comments ever about my class.  Ali overheard a girl say, “She’s trying to kill us… it’s like the Hunger Games!”

If that was you, fess up.  Because that’s awesome.

On another note, I have a new recipe post for your mid-week enjoyment.  This is Liz’s recipe that she brought along to the good-bye party we had for Jen last month.  It’s starting to get WARM here in Beantown, so I wanted to get this soup recipe out before it’s too hot to really enjoy soup.  I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t like having soup when it’s warm outside!

This recipe would be delicious on a cool end of March, beginning of April night.  🙂

Thanks Liz for the recipe!
(And sorry I didn’t snap any pics of your delish soup during the party)

What’s your favorite kind of soup?!

I’m excited because I actually get to have a social life tonight.  On a SCHOOL night too.  Thursday 6am-ers, I may be dragging in the morning, but I promise you’ll get a good workout.  Swiss ball theme class is planned and ready to go!
