What a BRAT!

OK, so I normally try VERY hard to not give in to my own bratiness ūüôā ¬†but on Friday, I just couldn’t do it anymore! ¬†So, I have been a member of the Sporting Club Bellevue for a bit over a year now. ¬†It has aways tempted me to become a member of the “Executive Program” there but I promised myself I would be a “regular member” for a year, stick with that, and then re-asses. ¬†Well, people, I re-assessed and literally “threw in the towel!” ¬†I KNEW the second I saw the Exec Locker area I would be sold!

Yes, that is a flat screen TV, coffee machine, fruit bowl, and fridge stocked with water and REAL juice!

I get my OWN locker in a private locker room, where I can keep my stuff there ALL THE TIME!  For someone so incredibly unorganized, this is really important.  I have missed many a workout because of a forgotten sports bra, etc.  NO LONGER!  They even do your laundry for you so that you always have clean workout gear!  There are also beautiful vanities with hair dryers, etc.

Hmmmm come to think of it, I’m not sure my picture taking was 100% legal! ¬†Don’t tell anyone! ¬†LOL!

I CANNOT wait to go to the gym this afternoon! ¬†I know I’m a brat, but this is JUST what I needed to re-jump start my fitness! ¬†It is very helpful that I am absolutely OBSESSED with spinning at the Club as it takes place in a very clubby-environment (imagine all black lights, pumping music and the like)! ¬†Anyway, I also get some free guests for being “exec” so come with me! ¬†For real, if you email me jessdownes1@gmail.com, I WILL honor your request to drink free juice workout with me ūüôā

All Hail Termini Bros!

OK, so last week was Husband’s birthday. Aside from the ridonk partay I threw him

his birthday OF COURSE included many sweet treats (Husband has quite a sweet tooth)!  I KNEW I wanted to go to the KING of pastries-Termini Brothers, and not just any Termini, but the ORIGINAL!

Well, when I got there (I had never been) I arrived to a nearly empty store so the amaaaazing employee, KIRA, offered me a TOUR! ¬†Score! ¬†It was AMAZEBALLS! ¬†BUT, get this…I didn’t have my camera! ¬†ARGH! ¬†The tour was absolutely awesome. ¬†Kira showed me the back where they have literally taken over almost the entire block, knocking down houses to make more baking/storage areas. ¬†Kira told me that their catering department will be expanding soon so they are making more room. ¬†I got to see all of the ORIGINAL equipment (wooden tables, mixers, etc.) which were restored and gorgeous. ¬†Even the cash registers were antique! ¬†Holy wow and yum, let me say. ¬†This amazing tour included taste tests! ¬†I also got Husband some cannoli which they filled with fresh cream right in front of my eyes! ¬†I was ONE happy camper!


SOOOO many choices!  I went to the car, grabbed my car, and by the time I returned, the entire place was filled!  NOW I know why!

Anywhoooo, Happy Birthday month week, Husband!
