So I’ve been going through a little bit of an identity blog crisis over here and decided to change things up a bit. To be honest I’ve been ignoring this corner of the internet because of writers block, lack of motivation, yada yada yada. Truth be told I haven’t been running. I haven’t been crafting. I haven’t been taking pictures of anything. Seriously, if we did a phone dump right now it’s full of “PITCHERS MOMMY, PITCHERS”; aka Rylee running around with my phone taking pictures of nothing.
This space of mine I felt needed a little facelift. Off an on I’ve been trying to figure out how to do it myself, or spend as little money as possible. I looked into paying someone to do this for me and “get serious” so I could make my money back, but I don’t have that kind of motivation or bank account for that. I was patient and dug and dug and found this amazing theme on ETSY for less than $5.00 SOLD. Plus it came with instructions, wait what?! Yes, it came with a step by step guide on how to customize all the things I wanted. This designer spoke to my soul.
So please bare with me while I tweak colors and add some things to my sidebar. If anything drastically changes I’ll let you know. These last few weeks I have had some brainstorming sessions to try and come up with fresh content. Starting tomorrow I will post “the craft of the week”. I’ll go more into detail tomorrow but the first on will be my Valentine’s “mantel” that will go live the first Friday of February.
My workouts have been lacking creativity lately so I will work on jazzing those up and sharing as well. I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with family and friends that we moved away from so I will still want to include some of our day to day. Not going to lie, we have been doing a bunch of nothing, there is so much snow here and not much to do when it’s 20 degrees outside.
Since this post has been word heavy thank you for sticking around. Like I said, there has not been much going on here but I did make it to the gym yesterday. Back story: I forgot my key to get into the gym here in Moscow while we were in Boise for SIX weeks. I contemplated getting another one but it is $75 and I can think of a million other things I can spend that kind of money on. I figured it doesn’t snow much in Boise I can run outside, and workout at home. JOKE ON ME…Boise has had the worst winter since 1985. Snow was/might still be piled everywhere. Sidewalks didn’t get plowed, roads barely got plowed. Lesson learned Ally, lesson learned.
I walked on the treadmill then did some upper body work and calf raises. When I woke up this morning I couldn’t even straighten my legs. Today at the gym I will complete the same workout again this afternoon and hopefully I will be less sore tomorrow.
It turns out MMR is good at doing hair. I keep begging him to teach me his braiding ways but he claims, he just does it one time and doesn’t remember how he did it. Rylee’s hair was really cool yesterday. I seriously sat and stared at it trying to figure out hoe he did it! She is getting really got at sitting still so we can do her hair and keep it out of her face.
Since there is so much snow here we went down to Lewiston in hopes of finding some warmer temps and grass. We had grass, but not warmer temps. We stopped by our favorite store and Rylee had some fun in the animal section.
I’m going to leave you with the cutest most delicious treat ever. Fun fact, I hate apple skin. We found these apples at the store and they are the perfect size for Rylee. I tried to peel them one day and I butchered the entire apple, so MMR came in to save the day and peeled me the perfect apple.
PS – see Frozen in the background. It’s Rylee’s fave movie. We have watched it six times since Monday. I can recite every song and am working on the dialogue. Looks like I should audition for Frozen 2.
