It was my intention when I started this blog (Fit, Fun and Fashionable) to Feature amazing people over forty. And now, for the very first time (drum roll please!!!) we are having our Feature Me Friday! I met our very first guest through voiceBoks.com; a wonderful place for bloggers to meet and make real connections. Today, I'm going to introduce you guys to Courtney from Mommy Lady Club.
Most people always ask the question, so how long have you been blogging? And I wasn't going to ask it. But. . . how long have you been blogging?
I used to take ballet class once a week, trying to keep up on my technique. I gave up the toe shoes long ago, but I do miss class, since I did that from the age of 10. There's something soothing about the repetition of exercises, and even though you can't make your body do as much when you're older, there are certain things you obtain only with age, that you finally understand after years of trying.
The story behind LaDy LaDuke is a good one, and I was just visiting my sister-in-law, and she remarked on how funny it was that she inspired the whole thing…
While struggling to breastfeed at the pumpkin patch in October of 2008--chasing her toddler, and tugging at the back of her shirt to keep covered, she said at the time, "I wish there was a nursing cover that came around and covered my back too." Betina and I were there together, looked at each other, and replied, "why don't we make one?"
To stay in shape, I'm back running up the hill near our house. I like that it's right there outside my door, it's really difficult and steep, and it is over very quickly.
My favorite thing in my closet right now are my BCBG cow hair cheetah print dyed pumps.
I like my 40's actually. I feel comfortable in my own skin, and feel like I've paid a few dues. I've definitely earned my grey hair and like it. I'm learning so many new things, and feel like I have more guts to try things. The unknown when I was younger was so daunting, but now I know it's supposed to be unknown. That's life...and you'd better wing it, and fly by the seat of your pants or you're not living!
