Blade Cross Fit Phoenix and Fun with the Fam

I’m flying to Baltimore from Phoenix as I type this. I had a few vacation days that felt like they needed to be used so I booked a flight to Phoenix in June. Today is was 112 and tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter.

My sister lives in Phoenix so I hung out with the family for a few days. We had some pool time (obviously, since it is June and 112 degrees outside), play time, gymnastics, Cross Fit, movie, and supper time while I was here.

My cute niece and nephew enjoyed waking me up at 6am everyday to watch YouTube videos of the Lion King on my iPhone and drive toy cars on my semi-asleep body. In retaliation, I took photos of their gymnastics class to use against them when they are older.

For my fitness this trip I went to Blade Cross Fit on Friday night for their ladies night. All the ladies of Blade Cross Fit and a few guests (me!) participated in a WOD (workout of the day) and then drank copious amounts of wine.

My sister is very pregnant so we did not place among the best teams (also, I’ve only done Cross Fit twice before and burpees are the devil!) but we got in a good workout had fun hanging out after. I had some wine and Bundt cake cupcakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes that were the best things ever!



White Chocolate Raspberry is the best flavor we tried. White Chocolate Raspberry will forever live in my dreams!

It was a fun event. I wish my gym in Baltimore did stuff like this.

Saturday night we spent in. It was hot, my sister was tired. But she is weird and has never seen Pitch Perfect. I had to rectify this situation immediately  so I found a Redbox that had it (it is not on Netflix, On Demand, or anything else I could think of). We made a cheese plate and ate Hot Tamales while experiencing the  Aca-awesomeness!

We also ate at a few Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives’ locales in the Phoenix area.  More on that to come!

  1. Phoenix is such a fun place! Glad you had a great time. I”m a bit fitness fan, but Friday night is for eating dinner out in my little world 🙂

    Seems like you had a fun time while in town! Yup, the summer triple digits are pretty brutal, huh? I love Nothing Bundt Cakes too, and agree with you on the flavors. I’m very interested to know which restaurants made your list…there are so many good ones here in Phoenix!

    cross fit is NOT my jam – I am way too injury prone, but friday night fitness is! nothing better than going to the gym after a long work week, refueling, showering, and being in bed by 11 pm 🙂
