Crochet Love :: Stained Glass Magic

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

While digging around for ideas for crochet short row techniques I found this awesome stained glass crochet blanket designed by Krysten/Hypercycloid. This is definitely a stash-busting project I can get behind.

#5for30 Week 1 Results

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Last week I gave myself a challenge: to run 5 miles every week until my 30th birthday this August. I managed to stick with it through week one, clocking in an hour and a half of time on the treadmill, running just over 7 miles.

If I can keep this up I should be in pretty good shape by the summer. Are you guys ready for bathing suit photos?

Finally, a Julep storage case

Monday, April 14, 2014

I've been waiting for this day for a long, long time. Julep finally has a custom storage case/caddy for its polishes!

Sure, the design is a bit corny. But thank the FSM there is finally something to contain my Julep polish collection. I have a lot. Really.

What's even better is I can get 4 free colors when I buy this. Which is happening shortly. Just add 'em to a cart on and enter CADDY. Which I did, just now. Because my nail polish needs a home.

Have I talked about all of my nail polish yet? I have an embarrassing amount. But I do change up my color once a week so it's not a total waste (that's what I keep telling myself).

Fave Friday

Friday, April 11, 2014

The Beach Blanket Bingo suit gave me my swimsuit confidence. But dang y'all, I wish I could pull off wearing a bikini like this! 

I keep seeing inflatable T. Rexes everywhere. And I keep wanting them, big time.

The Rex is History Inflatable from ModCloth

Now that I have Gus and Lola (introduction post forthcoming!)  I think they need a cute little pad like this to site on.

I love this hanging planter!

Someday I will have a kitchen with a window. And when I do, this will be in it.

If I celebrated Easter and/or actually the eggs I would SO DO THIS:

Maybe I should find some faux eggs and paint them anyway!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

The 5 Mile a Week Challenge

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

I'm getting old. No really. This summer I turn 30. And I think it's time to get myself in better shape.

I'll be honest, I probably take better care of myself now than I have in the last 10 years or so. But the ups and downs of size and weight are starting to really bum me out. So I've decided between now and August 3rd, my 30th birthday, I'll be running at least 5 miles a week.

This isn't a ton, it's totally doable, and I know it will make a difference. I also do a tiny weight/mat circuit after I run, so I know I'll get some toning done as well.

I'll start posting a weekly workout recap to keep myself honest. If you want to follow along, you can find me on Daily Mile here.

If you want to join me running 5 miles a week, let's friend up on Daily Mile!
