Fitness Friday Update!

This week's fitness update is a pretty exciting one for me!

As I mentioned, I exercise on my elliptical in the evenings after work. So far all I've been doing is going for half an hour (30 minutes!) and seeing how 'far' I can go.

And... (drum roll please)... I passed 3.5km today!! (3.58 to be exact!)


Ok, that might not sound like much of an accomplishment, but it wasn't too long ago that I was at 2km then close to 3 and now look at me go!

That's it for this Friday, just a little update! I can't wait until I can go 4km in 30 minutes! See you then!

Cheers!!! xoxo,

Wish Wednesday!

This week's #wishwednesday is all about DIY.

I've always been a crafter, but being that I'm in a very small, literally in-the-middle-of-no-where town... supplies are VERY limited. I look forward to sharing with you some of the things I've done (you'll notice the lack of different medium/supplies!!) but until then, check out these awesome DIYs I've found while dreaming of living closer to a Michaels.

This whole post has some super cute shirt ideas... this is my favourite!! Love the colours!
I SO wanted to try this this past christmas... next year!!
Who doesn't love Sharpie fun? (also... I have that blanket!!)
I think this should be my next project... I pack a lunch for work, do you??

Maybe my lunch bag can have some of these on it?
And there you have it!! Make sure you check out the links for these photos, browse... fall in love with the sites like I have!

Cheers! xoxo!!

Weekend Baking Sunday!

What do you do with leftover champagne?

Seems like an odd question. I mean honestly... who ever has leftover champagne? Well... when you are in more of a rye and coke or beer crowd like I am... the answer would be... me!

So what better to do after New Years than make some cupcakes? Check them out!

**Now unfortunately I ran into a bit of oven related problems (mainly... it wanted to try and cook my cupcakes at over 500F... but these things happen!!) So even though I doubled the recipe, I only got about half of them, the rest had crispy bottoms (which was a blessing in disguise... HELLO cupcake trifle!? Thanks mum for salvaging those today and making an AWESOME dessert!!).

Isn't it cute?!
