It's incredible what a good night's sleep will do. I woke up feeling better than yesterday, and enjoyed browsing the feeds on my Pulse app (it's an app that puts your favorite websites, blogs, news readers, etc in a great format so you can browse all of them) for a good 20 minutes. I especially enjoy the craft and home and garden feeds. They're so wonderfully inspiring and it sets such a creative and happy mood for the day. Even if I don't get to make anything that day, it's great to see beautiful design ideas. Here's a few of my favorites:
Apartment Therapy - inspiration comin' out the wahoo here. I'm sure you've heard of it and are familiar with it. If you're not, get your booty over there, pronto.
Fresh Home - similar to apartment therapy, and I love it when they include cool little shopping finds. For example, they posted this thing this morning that I just about died for and made me want to jump out of bed and immediately try to make one: You can click on it for the link
|I have several of these type of books on my beside table, and this would be PERFECT.|
Craft Gossip - Craft Gossip is way too much fun. They gather ideas and projects from far and wide of every type of craft you can think of. A lot of them are tutorials, or just beautiful things people have done. If you "like" them on facebook or follow them on twitter however, be warned that they post prolifically. I don't mind, I love seeing things people have made.
Oh my goodness, I need to stop. I could bombard you with all kinds of wonderful inspiring links, but it would be never-ending. Crafty Chica, Oops I Craft My Pants, Sew4Home, etc..etc..etc.. the first two are blogs, but SO much fun, and so very inspiring. I have a girl crush on Oops I Craft My Pants (on craftster her name is Noooooitaremybirthday, which cracks me up).
Anywho, you're probably bored by now. What's that? How did my wii'ing go this morning? Better than expected, actually, except for one little hiccup. I already whined about yesterday being kind of a rough day, so on my way home I picked up a big ol' meal from Taco Bell. AND I had a slice of frozen strawberry cheesecake from our freezer. So nyah. For those who would say "food shouldn't be a reward, or a comfort thing" you've obviously never felt the satisfaction of crawling into bed with some yummy junk food and watched something extremely entertaining on tv. Go run some laps or something, I'll take my taco bell.
So I rolled out my yoga mat, fired up the wii, and braced myself for a thorough chastising from Judgypants wii.
|Wait, what?! A compliment? Positive reinforcement?! I'm speechless, wii...thank you!|
Then I took the body test, and here's what it said. I'm putting my estimated BMI out there in public now, so don't judge........
|Lower than yesterday! With Taco Bell, cheesecake, AND a glass of wine!|
That totally made my day. I wanted to jump up and down and yell "HA! Take THAT you judgy bastard!" Not that I'll be having junk food and cheesecake every day, mind you, but I feel like I got away with murder.
Next came the balance and reflex tests, and I goofed on the reflex test. So when it told me my wii age, I didn't feel quite so smug.
|Yeah yeah yeah.....we all have those days.|
Happy friday, everyone! What are you doing this weekend? I'd love to know!
