Pearls of Success and Spin City

Today I was laying in bed watching the first season of Desperate Housewives ( I have recently become addicted... A little late compared to the rest of the country) and Nick came in a tossed a UPS package on the bed. Since it is not my birthday or any other special day, I was pleasantly surprised. Inside was a card, it had my mom's writing on it, the card was written beautifully, and inside the card was a small package. 
Pearls of Success by Dogeared: From humble beginnings as a grain of sand, the pearl slowly grows into an object of beauty and simplicity, symbolic of honesty, integrity, prosperity and wisdom. Pearls represent the best within us.
Thank you mom for all of the support and inspiration. 

Spin City! An amazing little spin studio that opened about a month ago. Two local girls, recent college graduate put their hearts and souls into this place, and with a little determination and sweat, they turned a old shop into an awesome workout room. 

With a combination of support from all of you, Spin City, and the drive with in me, this year will be a piece of (dairy free) cake!
