DIY Crafts

My mom is a great teacher, and she has so many awesome crafts and fabrics.  This summer, she let me dig through her stuff and take whatever I liked.  :)  I'm going to be making brooches, pins, hair clips, and whatever else during this Fall semester.  I've always wanted to make my own unique accessories and now I get to do it. :)  WOOT!  
There are sooo many options and combinations I can use and I can't wait!  I've already searched for DIY pictures, and have a small collection of ideas to use for when I start (which will be soon!!)

Of course, Gypsy had to be apart of the picture.  She's a diva at heart.  haha

Affordable Gym Shoes

I went to Kmart. YES Kmart and bought a pair of narrow black workout shoes for less than $30.  If you can see in the picture above, there is extra cushioning for my heals and the shoes themselves are lightweight, easy to walk/run/jog in, and very comfortable.  (I always wear socks).

My older brother gave me my birthday present a month early.  He bought my own membership to a private Personal Fitness gym and he and I work out there often.  

The gym is absolutely awesome!  The walls and beams are decorated, there are mirrors everywhere, there are locker rooms, bathrooms, fans in the ceiling corners, great air conditioning, multiple different treadmills (MY FAVS!), all sorts of weights and other exercise machines.  The owner Jeff is very helpful and provides several different membership plans.  I'm so grateful for this present "thank you brother!" and am working on getting fit as much as possible before large amounts of homework begins.  

Do you have a gym membership?  Do you prefer running on the treadmill, or running outside?
