Walk widget

I'm really proud of myself so far for walking everyday so far! The "contest" for the Pile on the Miles doesn't start until November 1, but I'm just getting my body used to it and I love it! I'll try to update my walks everyday so you can check up on me to see how many miles I've walked! Feel free to get one yourself and join in on the fun!

Jewelry + Door curtains!

On Friday I decided to clean up my end table by my bed because it was quite a disaster. I had a small earring holder, but it didn't fit all of my earrings and it was pretty ugly. But when I went to bunco a while ago, Holly brought this cute holder, and I picked it! So I hung it up and as I was putting my earrings on it, I realized the the smaller ones with backs would be impossible to get off without taking the whole holder down, so I decided to make small boxes to hold them. So I got a cereal box, and whipped up some boxes (that aren't symmetrical or straight at all.. but who cares!?), painted the outsides black and the insides a different color and hung them up! And I was pretty proud of myself!

I finally hung up my necklaces too! They all used to be in a shoe box, and were ALWAYS tangled!
 I moved my table sideways instead of sticking out and I love it! Such a small change, but it makes a huge difference!

I put my bracelets up too, but it's very inconvenient to get to them.. so if you think of something better, let me know!
I've also been wanting to re-do the curtains that are on our front door, because they're quite "grandma-ish" and we're not grandparents!! I've been looking for black and white vertical striped fabric for a while but couldn't find any! Until one day at Joanne's, they had the perfect fabric in the Halloween section!

And I saw a fall wreath on pinterest that was in a square instead of a circle and fell in love! So I went to Michael's and they had two long strip things with tons of leaves on them for half off! So I got them both for $6 and for the back I just cut the top of a Pizza Hut box!

It's way cute, huh?!

Pile on the miles!

Sharsti Scott is very inspirational when it comes to working out. She's run just under 500 miles this year, many of those were in half marathons and other races. Well she just joined in with a group of people pledging to pile on the miles rather than pounds this holiday season, and I thought that would be a great idea! I know I'm awful at keeping up with workout routines, but I decided that I want to walk anywhere from 1 to 3 miles everyday, preferably with Cody. And since I decided to do it with him, it's an even better reason to go! We went tonight and didn't go too hard, just walked at a pretty dang slow pace, ended up being gone for about an hour and walked 3 miles!! Needless to say, I was pretty proud of us(: So I'll keep updating my miles (probably just on facebook, unless I can figure out how to add it to my blog) and I'm really excited to get more active! I added the little widget to the sidebar, so if you're interested in doing it too, go ahead and click on it and it'll take you to the main blog with more info!

I'm kind of a business woman now..

I learned how to crochet last week, made a scarf and put it on Facebook and had a lot of people talking about buying one from me. So, I made another blog where I can put my scarves up and people can buy them! So, that's pretty cool (:

The blog is RIGHT HERE!!

So look at it, and buy something (: Well, technically, there's only one scarf on there. But I just finished another one that's off-white color, and I'm about to make a black one. So make a color suggestion, and then we'll do business!
