Lululemon Charlotte BLEND party

My Wednesday morning started at the ungodly hour of 4am.  I had a special work thing that required me to get up at that hour. 
Luckily I planned ahead and made some overnight oats so my morning would be a tiny bit easier.
So, I'm reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally sad to see my Justin's Maple Almond Butter end.  I will have to get more.  That stuff is unique among a sea of nut butters.

In this batch of overnight oats:
 about 1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
about a teaspoon of chia seeds
a tablespoon of pumpkin butter
a swirl of agave syrup.

That and coffee kept me going for hours.

The pleasant part about getting up at 4am was that I was finished with work and home by about 3pm.  By this time I was tired, but wanted to get in a quick run.  I did 2 miles around the neighborhood.

I made myself some breakfast for dinner in the form of an omelet with feta, spinach, and sauteed yellow pepper and onion. 
Had with one slice of Ezekiel toast.

After dinner I headed out to Lululemon in Plaza Midwood for a "BLEND" (blogger/friend) party.  Traffic was horrendous so I got there a couple minutes late, but found the location and saw some friendly faces.

The Lululemon rep was going over the plan, which was to take some pictures of us in their clothing.  I've actually never tried on their stuff before, but was excited to after all the great things I've heard about Lululemon clothes.  I tried some cropped pants, a green top, and a purple jacket on.
I'm not used to taking pics of myself with the DSLR, can you tell?  
Hi, I have no neck.

Loved the outfit, it was very cute.  Expensive!  But cute!

After trying stuff on, I mingled with my fellow bloggers and friends.

After trying on clothes and mingling, we got to do some yoga.  I haven't done enough lately, so I felt tight, but it was great to get stretched out.

Group shot!

On an impulse, I ended up buying the cropped pants I tried on the the beginning of the evening.  They were pricey, but I loved them and think I'll get a lot of wear out of them.

Which crops did you buy?

I have 2 running crops (Zoom and Team Spirit) and 1 pair of full length running tights from Lululemon (Spirit tights); I really like them!
