Trapeze Level 1

One of my new year’s resolutions was to get back into Circus Arts and I’m rather chuffed to say I managed to keep that resolution! Still working on the other 3 resolutions though. I’ve been attending Trapeze Level 1 at Simply Yoga and it’s so much fun! I have to bring David along to class with me because I’m still nursing every 2 hours, but thankfully the other students in the class are all mothers so they are willing to put up with his crying and even help me to carry him. I am incredibly grateful to them, especially my cousin-in-law who gives me a lift there every week!

I hadn’t done circus in almost a year before starting on the trapeze class and I’m still terribly out of shape and definitely the worst in the class. I really need to lose weight and build strength! But I’m quite proud of myself for signing up and making it through each class. We recently had our graduation class and we all dressed up for it. Should have some interesting photos to share soon! I’m going to start on Silks Level 1 next week so I’m looking forward to it.

I think Mother’s Day is one of the most important occasions in the calendar. Mothers do so much every single day and Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show your mum just how much you appreciate and love her. I know I look exhausted in the picture with my giant eye bags and I’m as tired as I look because I’ve been waking up at night to feed the baby. But I feel like a million bucks sitting there with 2 of my 3 kids and this gorgeous Velvety Mom-ents Mother’s Day cake that reminds me that everything I do is worth it!

Velvety Mom-ents from Swensen’s is a tasty combination of vanilla ice-cream and red velvet sponge cake. I love the heart shape and the pretty flowers decorating it. Velvety Mom-ents is priced at $49 (excluding GST) and no advanced ordering is required. Available at all Swensen’s and Earle Swensen’s outlets while stocks last. Get a sweet treat for Mum today!
