Tutorial: Sew a Knit Infinity Scarf

This weekend I had the opportunity and privilege of participating in the installation of a new chapter of my sorority.  It’s not something every member gets the chance to attend, so I’m very happy to have been in a position to attend.  It is a local chapter of collegiate women that I’m excited to get to know better!  In honor of the event I thought I would sew up something pretty to wear.  I had picked up a yard of a beautiful rose print knit fabric from Girl Charlee and it was exactly what I needed.  Roses are our flower.

Friday Fitness: Girl Gone Sporty

Week 2 of Friday Fitness and I’m sticking to my plan!  That is my mail goal with this half marathon.  Stick to the training plan.  I gave up on my training when I ran the Columbus Half, but a lot of that had to do with personal stuff going on, so I went into it undertrained.  I’m not letting that happen this time.

Saturday – 5 miles.  They were tough.  Well, the first 3 weren’t so bad, but the last two were mainly uphill and into the wind.  The upside was it was a beautiful day!

Sunday – rest

Monday – 3 speedy miles. Continue reading

Boilermaker Chili

Every year hubby has a chili cookoff at work.  And for the past few years he’s used the same recipe.  The chili cookoff is coming up and we couldn’t find the piece of paper with the old recipe on it, so we thought we’d try something new.  And it’s a good one!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili is the top rated chili recipe on allrecipes.com.  And well, we’re Boilermakers so why aren’t we making the Boilermaker Tailgate Chili? Boilermaker Chili #recipe #dinner

Natural Eye Makeup Remover

Hubby and I came up with a great plan this weekend!  We hired a babysitter to come at lunch time so we could go on a date day!  We figured we would pay the same amount of money for a babysitter as we would for two meals (that they probably wouldn’t have eaten anyway) so why not enjoy a little time to ourselves?!  It was so nice to eat and chat and play “Shut the Box” without antsy kids.  So I took it upon myself to get a little fancy!

I wore my polka dot Out and About Dress with some leggings and boots.  Curled my hair and even put makeup on!  I carried my pretty new Jewell by Thirty-One purse and was feeling pretty put together!

We really enjoyed our time together and decided we need to do that more often!

So, since I was all fancy and my eyes were all done up I thought I’d show you how I took my eye makeup off! Continue reading

Friday Fitness: Race Medal Hanger

Happy Friday!  Do you have big weekend plans?  I’m looking forward to the heat wave coming!  Temperatures in the 40s just in time for my long run!  I thought with half marathon training going on here I’d start doing a Friday Fitness post to help keep me on track.  So, welcome to the first one!

Saturday I ran a snowy 4 miles with my running buddy, Jessica.  We hit up a local path, that had not been cleared of the snow and had a fun adventure!  And ended up with some sore legs! Continue reading
