What's been "pinned"?

I've talked about Pinterest many times on my blog - y'all (all 2 of my dedicated readers) are probably tired of hearing about it.  :)    However, it's my go-to for all sorts of things:  recipes, decorating ideas, healthy living inspiration, how-to!   While I have 1000s of pins,  I thought it would be great to start a board of Pins I've Completed!   I have a list a mile long of home projects to complete, but the next up will be our spare bathroom and found lots of design & inspiration ideas!

Do you ever try any of your pins?

PS - Remember when chevron was called zig-zag!  :)

Excuses, excuses!

As you may remember, I'm a huge fan of early morning exercise.  When super-son was in elementary school, I was up at 515am for boot camp three times a week.  Last year, he started middle school & our middle school starts at 7:25am!  There was no way to get to boot camp, home & shower, (oh & get him up too!) and make it to school on time.  

I came up with plan b & it consisted of walking/running after I dropped him off and showering at the work fitness center.  In December, I changed jobs & it wasn't feasible to do that anymore.  What's a girl to do?  Nothing - I've pretty much had zero exercise routine since earlier this year. 

Super husband works evenings, so it's difficult to do after work.  I feel guilty leaving super son at home any longer than I have to after school. The reality there is no reason I can't take advantage of Saturday & Sunday - yes, both days are super busy but it comes down to making excuses or getting it done.  

Yesterday, I got it done. Moved at a snails pace, but it was better than sitting on the couch!  What's your excuse?
