I started a LIST SERIES in Summer 2018 and decided to keep adding to it here and there. These posts are kinda like an introduction (or a reintroduction for those who’ve been with me since the jump!). A nice to meet ya, so glad you stopped by, now STAY AWHILE! Why lists? Because I love making ’em! Enjoy…

P.S. If I had all the time in the world, I would do crafts every day! Here’s where I pin all the projects my DIY-loving soul wants to do. I especially love DIY that is budget-friendly, upcycling-minded, or results in something that makes life a little simpler or the world a little bit more beautiful. You too? Come hang out with me on Pinterest!
In keeping with this post, I took to Pinterest to come up with a fun exercise challenge to do this week. Along with my normal work-outs (yoga, hikes, dance), I’m going to do the following weight work every day attempting to increase the reps each day. IDK if I’ll be giving out tickets to the gun show in the span of just 7 days but it should be fun! Feel free to join me if you’d like to work your arms this week.
