Last Saturday I took a mini road trip Gaithersburg, MD to meet up with my one and only, bestest-friend in the entire world, sissta fo life, Carly! Carly moved to Florida after graduation last year so I don't get to frolic with her as much as I used to, which is why I was super excited when I found she would be in Maryland for a RIO fitness class.

RIO, Real Intense Outcomes, is a hot new dance-fitness class that is taking Miami by storm. My lovaface Carly is so good at it that they asked her to help out at RIO expo's around the country. RIO is similar to zumba, but even better! The dance moves are way more intense and involve lots of booty shaking...sign me up!

So Carly's madre (basically my 2nd mother) and I took a little road trip down Maryland to reunite with Carly and shake our bottoms to some crazy Brazillian musica! The RIO Expo was a four hour dance class and I loved every minute of it--it was a total full body work out.

Ruben and Flori can dance this crazy brazillian dance called Capoeira, basically a mix between martial arts and's INTENSE!
After RIO we consumed our body weight in Spanish food and proceeded to spend the rest of night being gypsies in the middle of bumble-fuck-Maryland...aka we frolicked around till we ended up at some townie bar that had karaoke, took way too many shots, did about 50 cart wheels, met some random orioles fans and just had a blast with the rest of the RIO dance team.
Any weekend spent with the DiLella's is always a memorable weekend and this one was no different. It was so great getting to hang out with Carly again and Mrs. DiLella was a hoot as always! Can't wait to save up some money and visit Carly in Miami!


  1. Love it! I can't wait to frolic with you :)
