Poker & Baseball

What a weekend! It was crazy busy... fun, but exhausting!

Friday: A couple great friends came into town from Orange County. They went to Napa for a celebration. More about that tomorrow! How I love seeing and staying in touch with my old friends. Sigh. We met them in St. Helena for dinner at Market. Delish!

Saturday: I am now officially yoging again! YAH! My mom & I are training for a 1/2 marathon in August and are doing a trial period at a local Yoga Studio: three dog yoga.
 
Its the only power yoga I have found since moving up here. {In Orange County, I was loving Core Power Yoga. If you have one near you... its fabulous- check it out!} Afterwards, the bird & I hit up the farmer's market. Then went to my bro's little league championship game. I am excited to announce they took it all! What a stud!

On Saturday night, we had a Texas Hold 'em night scheduled. Let me first explain... I have NEVER played before. But awhile ago, the fam & I auctioned for the tickets at a little league fundraiser. And won. I made the bird give me a quick tutorial on the ride over. I was so nervous! Those guys on tv are so intense!

It was a blast! It was nice spending time with the fam. And not to make a big deal out of it... but I actually won! So ridiculous! And all beginner's luck!
Here is me with my winnings... still in quite a bit of shock!

SUNday: Father's Day! We took my dad & brothers to the Giants & As game in Oakland.
Huge Giants' fans!

And then there's the bird...
And I am sorry to report, not only did the As win that game, they swept us and won every game of that series. Boo!

How are you liking Three Dog Yoga? It looks really nice!

I just started doing yoga but am doing it at Power House Gym on 5th St in Santa Rosa -- can't really beat the price there!

I do yoga, but what is core power yoga?!

@Leslie: I'm sure there are different variations of Power yoga, but in my experience, it is fast-paced and continual movements in a heated atmosphere. You (or I) sweat a lot! And they poses are challenges and you even get your cardio going. Its my favorite.

I haven't played poker in a while, but I used to play all the time and loved nothing more than to beat my husband and all his friends and take their money :)
