Lifting weights is still my least favorite, but it does seem to make the biggest difference. I am probably checking my steps too often, making sure I'm on track for the day. :)

I was just saying again yesterday, as I filled another June date with my orange marker, that seeing the goal right in front of me helps so much. I am pretty sure it might be the only reason I even find the motivation to do this everyday...I don't want to see an empty box on the calendar. :)

Hi Theresa, I wish I had a resource to share, but Sean has a bench and free weights so he's shown me about 10-15 minutes of what to do.

In the middle of January 2017 Sean and I took our nephew to a basketball game at the college by our house because they were playing the University of Redlands where we both went to school. Our nephew loves basketball,... Continue reading

I tried the 100 Day Project last year and got a couple dozen days altogether (and made a layout about it). This year I got a little 4x4 book to fill with whatever few minutes of craftiness I come up... Continue reading

It's been a busy few months with barely a crafty bit of anything to share...but at least tomorrow has some mini colored pencils wrapped up for my nephew and nieces. Happy Easter! Continue reading

I have done a bit of scrapbooking over the last several months (I started back on National Scrapbooking Day) and finally scanned the pages. It seems finding a cute 8.5x11 inch album is pretty much impossible now, so I am... Continue reading

This room is almost the exact same as when I last rearranged it three and a half years ago, which is a world record of consistency around here. But there was a small yellow table under the window that was... Continue reading

I only shared one batch of 2017 pages last year, so I am finally sharing the rest now. I love using the app as much as ever and continue to be really grateful that it's this easy to save memories... Continue reading

I decided to make a pretty big change in planner-ing (because that's a word, right?) for 2018. I have used an A4 binder for years, but I would rarely take it out of the house since it was so big.... Continue reading

I finished this book up a few days after Christmas and it's packed with seventy-two little pages. A few pages were shared already and here's a bunch more... Continue reading

When I was planning this little redecoration this past summer, I asked Sean if he would have ever changed this room from when I first decorated it a couple years after we moved in. I wasn't surprised to hear that... Continue reading

Happy New Year right on time six days into the year...but that's not too bad, right? This year I really, really, really want to figure out a way to get back to actually making stuff. I want to go back... Continue reading

This year has been fairly sparse as far as blogging, but there were still some favorites. Over the years, I have loved putting together these end of the year posts. Favorite Gift...colorful gummy bear snacks with a teeny tiny scoop.... Continue reading

I started this year's little 4x4 book right before Christmas and still need to finish it up. I was a little snarky on a couple of pages, but happy as can be to be crafting and can't wait to complete... Continue reading

We decided to make a big entree salad when we hosted Christmas dinner this year, but it occurred to me at the last minute kids were probably not going to be too excited about that. I needed something kid-friendly that... Continue reading

I came up with the "merry making" idea instead of twelve days of Christmas activities, since realistically we would struggle to keep it up for a dozen days. This way we can do any number, which I am really taking... Continue reading

For a few years now (2014/2015/2016) I have made super simple gifts with alphabet stamps. It's a way to have them still be homemade, but homemade pretty quickly. The alphabet stamps I picked were pretty big and weren't going to... Continue reading

This year's cards were deceivingly complicated. It seemed simple enough...a 5x7 photo (snapped in our backyard when my father-in-law was here visiting over Thanksgiving) backed with navy cardstock. There is a simple strip of photos with a sentiment adhered to... Continue reading

I have been super-duper slacking as a blogger this year...granted I never have really been an actual "blogger" as much as I have just been a sharer of occasional crafts and other random bits of life. Either way, I have... Continue reading
