1. Have you been seeing social media explode in regards to pregnancy? I’m not sure where it originally stemmed from. Perhaps it was Marissa Mayer’s decision to take “fewer days off than she should” (according to many people), but whatever it is, I’m enjoying watching people stick up for themselves when it comes to pregnancy. Like, my pregnant friend Julia who is essentially like, “stop asking ridiculous questions to me” and this woman who is isn’t even pregnant and telling people to STFU because you don’t know what people are going through. It’s an incredibly sensitive, private thing to ask questions about, so pretty much just don’t. Unless said pregnant person brings it up first.
2. I move in one week from today to West Des Moines! Jk. I’m moving down the hall to a space that isn’t essentially hugging the freeway (aka MLK Jr Pkwy). I’ll be packing all weekend, so if you’re bored & want to feel useful, bring beer & a fun playlist.
3. The October green smoothie challenge has begun! Join me if you’d like. The recipes are unique & pretty tasty!

5. POP UP YOGA DSM has been one of the coolest things to launch and also one of the most time-consuming! Coordinating all the details, updating the website, putting everything on social media and whatever else comes along is a lot to manage. That being said, we’re taking a break this fall to figure out how we can be better & more community-oriented. So many people launched community yoga events this summer (which was so fun to see & attend), so why would we duplicate what people are already doing? So, tonight we host our last outdoor event at the top of a parking garage. Details here. Join us! Here we are at Confluence Brewery last weekend.
