Hello, readers! I have missed writing this week! My laptop cord broke, so I haven’t been able to blog in a few days! But I got a new cord today—Yay!—and now I am back!
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!
You know, the further we get into the month of November, the more excited I am about the upcoming holidays! I absolutely love the Thanksgiving-to-Christmas stretch. In fact, I’ve already been listening to some Christmas music! ;) Earlier in the week, i had an opportunity to help with a demo at the Southern Christmas Show. The dance-fitness company I teach with likes to go out and do demos at differemt events, just to show what a regular Zumba class or DanceOut class is really like. I always love attending the SCS, so I was excited to help with this demo.
Here I am with 2 other fellow instructors:
Jenny, Kyle, and Me! We were also joined by about 10-12 other participants.
If you want to get in the holiday “mood,” then this is the perfect place. I had never been on “Preview Night” before. One bonus—free parking! And as a demo participant, I got to attend the show FREE!
Our demo was lots of fun and we had lots of people interested in taking classes with us. Afterwards, it was time to explore and shop!
When I attended the SCS last year (click to view), I got hooked on Duplin Wine. Most of their varieties are too sweet for me, but I love their Burgundy. I made sure to stop by their area and got a little care package for myself.
I didn’t spend too much—just got a few gifts, and some Darby Creek Soups. I always want soup during fall and winter, and I like these soup mixes. They are really easy to make for a weeknight dinner and you can add in extra fresh ingredients to make it “sorta-homemade.” I chose three varieties: Tortilla Soup, Navy Bean Soup, and Split Pea Soup. I can’t wait to try them out!
Actually, tonight I am making a different sorta-homemade soup: Broccoli Cheddar. I can’t wait! I’ve been thinking about it all day!
