I have a love-hate relationship with yoga. I love yoga, but I hate how much membership fees at most yoga studios cost. It can be hard to get your namaste on when all you can think about is how much your bank account is hurting. Sure, there are affordable online options out there but being the extrovert that I am, I prefer a class setting. While battling a few different health problems lately, yoga is my best option in terms of working out. Because of this, I have had to research class options that won't break the bank.
Thankfully for me, Raleigh is a city who loves yoga and has tons of affordable options.
When it comes to flowers, I have #thoughts. Mostly, it's just a massive jealousy because guys I dated never sent me flowers, or because I think roses are boring and overpriced. However, over the past few years, I have learned to love going to Trader Joes or Whole Foods to buy all kinds of different flowers and create arrangements at home. There's one tiny problem, I have not a damn clue what I am doing. After weeks of lurking SkillPop, I decided I would bite the bullet and take a floral arrangement class.
Everyday, someone asks me how my move has been and everyday I say "Ommm..it's okay??". The follow up question is always "Do you miss LA?". I don't. But I do. I was in Los Angeles for 7 years and it's hard to let go of it as I feel like so much of my identity was shaped there. However, it's good to be home.
Since day 1 in NC, I have tried to figure out my new "go to" spots so I figured I would share some of my LA substitutions in Raleigh as well as my weird bootleg rating system.

During my brief funemployment stint, I discovered the glory that is Wahlburgers, a TV show that follows the Wahlberg family's restaurant adventures. I quickly became obsessed with Mark, Donnie and Paul, as well as the rest of the family. I obsessively tweeted gifs of Mark in his younger days. I obsessively posted Facebook status's saying I needed to attend a Wahlburgers.
You will understand my excitement when I got an email telling me that WAHLBURGERS IS COMING TO RALEIGH!!!!!
