SparkMail is Fun!

Monday, August 05, 2013


I know I just blogged a couple of days ago. Donít want to be a pest, but I just had to show you something that a SparkBuddy sent me in the mail this weekend. Itís just so much fun. Thank you, SNOWYOGA!!!


hOOping Ronald-how cute is this??

Also, as I mentioned in the vlog, Tom, Shelley and I are planning on earning our 30,000 Steps in a Day FitBit badge this Saturday (Aug. 10). We may even have some more friends joining us that day. The more the merrier, I always say. If you want to join us virtually, be sure to leave me a comment or SparkMail me to let me know. Iím compiling a list and weíre gonna give everybody a shout-out in our vlog. Wonít that be fun? Weíll all be doing it together. The current plan is to do one early morning walk, then take a break. Iíll come home and post our progress in a Part 1 vlog. Then, that evening, weíll take another big walk and crush the 30,000 steps challenge together. And Iíll post a victorious vlog that evening or the next day, depending on how fried my brain is. Itís so much fun planning active play dates like this with my buddies. Kids do NOT get to have all the fun. No, no they donít.

Iíll leave you with a couple of pics from my creative journal entries last week. Why? Because itís Monday and you might need a smile.


Prompt was to make something with crayons. Bumbrella the Monster, a vector drawing I did on my iPad, plus two boxes of melted crayons on canvas. Art, I tell you, art.


Prompt was to remake a piece of classical artwork. Behold, the Google-Eyed Masterpiece Collection. Why this isnít hanging in the Louvre, Iíll never know.

And THIS--oh my gosh, I saw this in the grocery store yesterday and had to show you. Itís on my Dear Santa list this year.


Wonder Woman PotatoHead--Iím gonna need a bigger Shelf of Awesomeness...

Spark ON, Brave Sparkers! Make it a great Monday. :)

UPDATE: So far, we have 24 SparkBuddies who are joining us Saturday (virtually)! So fun to think we'll be doing this together, from places all over the world. Holler at me if you want to join in on the fun. You don't have to have a FitBit; you can use a pedometer, or app, or abacus, whatever you want to use to count your 30,000 steps. Just let me know if you're in and we'll give you a shout-out in our vlog.
Making fitness FUN!!! Woo to our hoos, people, woo to our hoos.

    Nice to know that redheads can hoop - i'm in. But please not 35,000 times around. I'm (happily) tired from our walk today!

    I love the hooping toy. I think my cats would figure it out and play with it. I'm in recovery from knee surgery so there will be no 30,000 step challenge for me for a long time. However, I will walk 3 miles today in support of your challenge. Please keep posting challenges like this. I will always do my best to join in any way possible.

I would love to make the 30,000 steps on Saturday but I might be going out of town. If I don't then I'll be walking with you - using my BodyMedia Fit.
Awesomeness to the highest!
