Love Your Legs

by Jenni in

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. We had lots of fun visiting my Mom with my Grammie. There was lots of eating, a few movies watched, and quite a bit of relaxing. We drove home last night and the hubs and I were able to make a last minute trip to the beach for sunset. It was cold, but absolutely beautiful! 

But now, it is back to the real world and lots of things to do this week. One of those things is this Tone it Up Love Your Legs Workout. Hopefully, we all love our legs already because of all the amazing things they can do, but, this will help make them a bit stronger. Oh, and it also works the bum. Of course it would catch my eye.

As long as everything goes right today, I will be completing two workouts and you will be hearing about one of them later on in the week. This workout may come in quite handy on Wednesday when things will be quite hectic and a 20-minute workout will work out perfectly. See what I did there? Hahahaha... 

Here's to a wonderful week with lots of great workouts and other productive things in the mix as well. Oh, and a pun or two, of course.  Happy Monday!

5 Fantastic Ways to Design Your Easter Eggs

by Jenni in

Easter is almost here and this weekend I will [most likely] be decorating a few Easter eggs of my very own. But, we are leaving the dye kits and their bunny-ear shaped dippers at home. It is time for the Easter egg big leagues. These Easter eggs will make every DIY'ers heart pitter patter with DIY joy! For those who are not-so-great at the DIY game, do not fret, there are a couple of these that any skill level can complete with success. 

5 Great Easter Egg DIY's

1. Game of Thrones Easter Egg. This Easter egg DIY from P+K last year is still one of my all-time favorites. The timing just works too perfectly to not have a dragon egg for Easter. Really. One of the best things about this one is that you can use not-real eggs and keep it for many years to come. Also, the metal and hot glue make it feel hot like a dragon's egg when you are done. So cool!

2. Natural Dyed Eggs. These are for all those out there who do not enjoy using synthetic ingredients in anything. Yes, these eggs were dyed with natural products, and a food that you have in your fridge! Red onions give these eggs their natural look. For a full color spectrum, you can also use saffron, blueberries, beets, purple cabbage, and carrot leaves. 

3. Golden Paper Mache. Martha Stewart just classes up every DIY. These paper mache eggs take two things up a notch. The first being paper mache, obviously; and the second being Easter eggs. This is not your usual kiddo arts and crafts! 

4. Sharpie Easter Eggs. That's right people, all we need for these is a Sharpie marker and some serious patience. Doing something like these intricate designs would probably send a person with my patience to a level of crazy equal with Jack Nicholson in The Shining. All those patient people out there can do this and think of me :)

5. Stick Things on Easter Eggs. Maybe you have seen/thought of this before, but finding these was like a Pinterest epiphany. You can paint an egg, then glue things on them for an extra pretty effect! Really, the person who thought this up is on level with that one who invented the wheel.
