Give us a challenge, we dare you!

Just another day….

IMG_0081 IMG_0084 IMG_0069 IMG_0055

So I have made it my mission to take full advantage of the excessive amount of unworn clothing in my closet.  With that said, I did something I don’t normally do * drum roll please* I wore a shirt that is longer then ‘normal’.  A shirt that could actually be considered a tunic… Pretty fancy huh?  Normally I don’t wear long shirts because I am not exactly sure how I like them… But, I did it and everyone in school loved it!  It always feels really special to receive and give compliments.  Now remember as you take a look at this outfit I threw together, I am certainly not a fashion-y person but I do try to get creative every now and then 🙂

Happy Monday!

Just Keep Runnin’

Running

So now that is has kind of warmed up (it was thirty degrees today!), and the sun has come back out, Zola and I are going to begin running again! Hopefully at the end of this journey, bathing suit season will be in full swing and we will look hotter then ever! We bundled up for this run with scarfs and gloves, despite the fact that we are both wearing capris… :/  Anyways, I decided to share my voice with Zola on this run, and sing her all of the songs I was listening to because she forgot to bring her iPod (i bet she won’t do that again.)  The song of the day was by good ol’ Kelly Clarkson(Zolas least favorite)! Dark side is one of the many songs I like, but Zola hates.  Stay tuned for the song of the run tomorrow!

30 Day Challange

My Cousin took this picture while on his way to work one morning. One word describes it- COLD.

So I have took it upon myself to postpone the thirty day challenge for the week, and restart next Monday, it has been quite chilly here in my small town.  It is silly that I can not just suck it up and run in the cold, but four degrees is wayyyyyyy to cold.  Stay Warm wherever you are out there! 🙂

Challenge Day 1

So real proof of me and Ziggy running on our first challenge day is scarce…no pictures, videos, nothin’…but we definitely did it and freezed our butts off in the process! Anyway, this is like a new start, I decided that along with this challenge I wanted to not only get tip top healthy shape….no more movie popcorn for a while :/….. but also do things that make me happy, take some time out of my day to have me time and so today, after I ate the chili Ziggy and I concocted, I decided to sit down and draw, because I love to, almost as much as I love to write! I’m hoping to start a much healthier and happier lifestyle! Wish me luck and maybe you’ll be inspired too :)!

Buncha pennies on a keychain

StamP Y0ur Luck

LUckY PennieS

Handle With (arePennY KeYChain

Up Up Must Have Been Lucky

We all stumble on that penny when walking through a store, or down a street. What if all those pennies are really lucky? This is part 1 of my penny project series. Today I paid my sister one quarter for her 24 pennies (i was ripped off…) and i took it upon myself to start the penny project.

I have a few penny projects that I will be completing over the next few weeks and here the first one!

You will need:

A metal letter stamp kit, like this one

Pennies, and lots of them

Drill with a 5/64 bit

Scrap wood (to place under the pennies as you drill, you don’t want any holes in your table)

Hammer

Crafting Pliers (and split ring pliers)

6mm and 9mm split rings

1 Key chain

Step 1: Lay all of your pennies face up and pound the letters LUCKY into them. It took me a few practice pennies to figure our how i wanted the letters to be placed. I started the ‘L’ underneath the ‘liberty’ and swooped the letters down, following the shape of the penny which led me to finish on the date. I found it is easiest to do on concrete.

Step 2: Place the pennies on a piece of scrap wood, and drill one hole into the top of the penny, i tried to get as close to the edge as possible. Be careful because the metal scraps that come out of the penny may look like innocent silver spirals, but are actually weapons in disguise, waiting to cut you… ;(

Step 3: Loop a 6mm split ring into the holes of all of your pennies (I used 12 pennies for my key chain)

Step 4: Attach three of your pennies (the ones from step 3) onto a 9mm split ring. (you should have a total of 4 larger split rings with three pennies attached if you did it like me.)

Step 5: Attach the split rings from step four together. I placed empty split rings in between as spacers so it was not as bulky.

Step 6: Attach to a key chain 🙂

I hope those directions made sense, it takes time and patience to make this keychain, so choose a rainy day. 🙂

Stay tuned for more penny projects and the best of luck to you!

30 miles in 30 days challenge!!

Hey guys! So to start the ball, and the new year, rolling on our Buncha Challenges page, me and Ziggy are beginning the 30 miles in 30 days challenge, which is where me and Ziggs have to run a mile a day for 30 days. We’ve been on and off runners before but this will definitely get our butt into gear and kick off our 2013 year the healthy way! Target’s already having bikini sales and we need to be ready!! 🙂 We’re starting this challenge next Monday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 21st). Wish us luck and we’ll keep you updated, we promise!
