ate over at Centsational Girl is hosting a Link Party called "Where do you Blog" ... and since I finally revealed my fancy/practical/wonderful Craft Desk yesterday I thought I would participate! :)
I'm a mover and a shaker when it comes to blogging ... I like to spice it up! Actually, it's usually wherever I can find my laptop! Tarzan likes mine better than his, so he's always stealing it! :)
Sometimes I blog in the sweet Little guest bedroom "Home Office".
This room makes me happy. The combination of Black, White & Turquoise puts me in a happy mood!
The printer is also in here -- so it's practical! :) Gotta love that.
If you didn't catch my post here - I've decided to run a 5k in 5 weeks! I'm 2 days in....
Day 1: I walked/ran a little over 2 miles ... and today I did the same. Not enough but better than nothing. I wasn't exhausted after the 2 miles - I was BORED. Really Bored. ADD perhaps? :)
Maybe I just need to charge up my ipod ...
Here are some of the thoughts that were running through my head this morning as I was briskly walking jogging ...
1. What the heck was I thinking?
2. Is it possible to ALREADY have shin splints? Side cramps? OUCH.
3. Ugh - I swear this stroller weighs 900 pounds.
4. Holy moly - when was the last time I actually went for a jog?
Then I did the math ... math while you're running, pushing a jogging stroller and avoiding cars takes a little longer but I came up with this ...
Nelson is 7 months old - 7 months
Pregnant for 9 months - 9 months
2 lazy years post college - 24 months
4 years of college 48 months
HS Senior Year Fun 12 months + HS Junior year abroad 12 months
TOTAL 112 months
SERIOUSLY? It's been 112 months since I last worked out consistently ... like REALLY worked out. In case you're wondering -- that's NINE YEARS!!!!!!!!!
No wonder I'm about to DIE.
Talk about a reality check ... I should have NEVER done the math. Shame.On.Me.
5. Did that truck just drive by, honk and yell our the window? Heck yes he did... and who cares if he's old, salty & creepy .... all I was thinking is MAMA STILL GOT IT! :)
I saw this post, Put a Cork In It, from Young House Love (LOVE.THEM!) and wanted to give a try! What a great idea! :)
I searched the house endlessly and no square glass vases for me... (that just means that Tarzan doesn't bring home enough flowers ... )
But since I already had some cork board on hand (leftover from another project) - I wanted to try and do this project without spending any money! :) I knew I could come up with something - just had to get the wheels turning a little!
Well last night we had lasagna! Which required a lot of cans ... Ding Ding Ding!
DUH, Cans! I've seen numerous posts about bloggers re-purposing their cans into all kinds of fab things! So I decided to make my cans pencil holders wrapped with cork board! :) The perfect little "message center". I covered one with fabric and left the the other one naked - no reason in particular ... just can't decide which I like better!
and coincidentally I just created a little desk/computer/printer/"home office" area in the Guest Bedroom - so I knew the perfect spot for my cork cans! :)
I love this little area!
It makes me just want to go print something!
(and thanks to the post-it reminder on my cork can- I bought some ink today!!)
Oh and please ignore that hideous wall color & ugly carpets ... we're renting and no painting allowed! :(
Oh and don't you just LOVE that lovely white chair??
Well, I'll be posting on that soon but it wasn't always so pretty! :)
