#5for30 Week 2 Results

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Week 2 and I haven't given up yet! That's pretty good, because I'm not athletic and frankly, I'm a better quitter than a fighter.


I just got the Nike+ app on my phone and used it for my workout today. I'm already about 33% more motivated because I love technology. It also appears to do a pretty good job tracking on a treadmill (must use a motion sensor rather than GPS). I'll be talking more about that later this week!

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.

You can see more projects on Ravelry, and queue it up here:


#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 Julep.com 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

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!
