Style Inspiration: Emmanuelle Alt. She is the epitome of cool.

Wine in a CAN! And, yes, it’s actually really good. Great for hikes and sneaking into the theater!

My new fav sneaker. And, it makes your legs look great . . . .

This made me laugh.

The Bigger the Better . . .

Ok, get your mind out of the gutter — I love this new song by Nelly Furtado. Mostly because, if you know me, you know I wear some big ass hoops. So here it is among some other fun finds around the internet. Have a great weekend

This salad looks delicious — I am making it this weekend.

Delicious and refreshing cocktail!

Happy Gorgeous Weekend

It’s going to be 80 degrees this weekend in Denver. This early warming trend freaks me out a little (and stresses me out, as I need to get my stroller classes going!) but I’ll take it! Are you on spring break now? I am, and we are heading up to Steamboat! Not sure what we are going to do — maybe hike? Regardless it will be fun to get away.

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared things from around the web, so here goes. Have a great weekend!

Now that my kids are old enough, I’d like to book a family adventure trip!

A weekend with the Abundance Guy.

Hi friends, how is your weekend? I think we had a great workout at Red Rocks — at least I was very happy with it . . . I love how many people are up there working out, it’s crazy. And then there are all these tourists from other countries taking pictures of the crazy Americans working out. And how is it that we are still such a fat country? they are thinking.

Anyway, I’m in Breckenridge for the weekend. I got married here once — I love it, it so scenic and I love how the sun feels on my skin. We are hanging with my bf’s best friend — who has come to be a friend of mine. He has a very interesting business  — he consults with people on how to help them have abundant lives. It’s really better if you look at his website, it’s hard to explain.

He often visits us in Denver and in the morning he makes the best smoothies. As you know, I am a BIG fan of the morning smoothie. It’s a great way to start your day. You can load it up with fruit, veggies, protein, fish or flax oil and get all the nutrients you need for the day. It is great to fix in a pinch. I can make one in minutes before I race out the door with my kids. It is hands down one of the best habits that I have. Try it.

Home again!

You know you’ve had a good vacation when you are excited and ready to go back home. I’ve had a great time with family and alone on the beach with my man — but I am dying to get back home and into a routine again. And, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait for fall. What? I really do love summer, but I am a little over being hot and I’m ready for fall fashion! I found the most fantastic green motorcycle jacket that I can’t wait to rock 🙂

So, what are your favorite vacations? Are you an active vacationer — learning or doing something new? Or do you like to lay around, drink and get tan? I’m a little of both, but probably leaning more toward the laying around and being slothful. Speaking of that, I’m getting ready to do another retreat in Mexico in October. This year I am offering 6 nights (I thought 4 was just too short — and not really enough time for everyone to truly relax and rejuvenate), and I’m bringing my ballet sculpt instructor. It’s going to be so much fun! Check out my website for more info and email me @ teddi@hotmamasexercise if you think you are interested in going.

I’m off to teach at Red Rocks tomorrow (a perfect way to get back into the swing of things!), I can’t wait to actually exercise again. I hope you can join us! I’ll see you on Monday with some new exercises. In the meantime, here a few things swimming around the web:

You don’t even want to know what Coolwhip is made of . . .

Boots that I am eyeballing for fall

Love this mom-blogger

Great camera for parties

Love this woman‘s style and I can’t wait to wear socks with platforms!

Did Liza sign a pact with the devil? Oh, or maybe she just has an amazing surgeon . . .

Isn’t the pillow above so cute? You can get any state . . . .

I want to go here someday — how fabulous is this retro-chic hotel?

Great new metallic eye trends that don’t seem too difficult to do myself

Have a fun weekend!

Hi my friends, what are you doing this weekend? We are headed back up to Red Rocks again for another killer workout. If you are in town, you should come join us! Details will be on the Hot Mamas Facebook page or on my website.

I completely forgot to tell you that I am going on vacation! We had been debating for a couple months about where to go, but in the end, we decided on Miami again. We both just love the heat and the culture. I’ll be posting intermittently, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here are some fun things I found on the web this week:

Knuckle Tattoos (as seen above) look fun and ghettolicious

Stylemint— Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen’s new brain-child. Fabulous, and I’ve already ordered my first tee!

Cool tees/dresses from Surf Bazaar in Montauk

Even in this heat, I’m loving these boots!

I’m making these tonight — Delicious with a skinny margarita!

Nowness — great photography

New joint from Robin Thicke — love his new sound.

Love these high-tops from Nike!
