I've been feeling a bit crafty lately. I love love LOOOVE having a sewing room. It's so nice to just be able to go in there and do what I want to do and not have to get out the machine and set up a table and blah blah blah. It's awesome.

I am going to get out of the RUT I was in last week! I upped my exercise goal to 2000 calories this week. Today, I worked out for 30 min this morning, and then when I got home, my dog was literally begging me to take her for a walk. So we wen... Read more
