Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow! I’m not sure yet how we’ll celebrate…I don’t even know what I’m getting The Hubs and The Kid. Probably some form of chocolate for The Kid. The Hubs needs some new white t-shirts…is that romantic enough?
Here are some of my favorite things from this week…
I’ve owned a FItBit fitness tracker for years. It’s very interesting to see how many (or in my case, how few) steps I take every day. I decided to ramp up my fitness and purchased a FitBit Charge for my birthday.
This wrist band is so high tech! It counts steps, active minutes, sleep, calories, stairs and even has a Caller ID function, which is AWESOME! Click HERE to find out more about the FitBit Charge. Here’s a look at my day yesterday.
(I’m not proud of these stats, by the way. Yesterday was a slow day.)
My goal is at least 10,000 steps every day. I meet it about 3 times a week… I need to get my booty in gear!
This nail polish from Sally Hansen…
I love nail polish, but it tends to make my nails peel, so I don’t often wear it, plus it chips so quickly on me. I found this particular “velvet” polish at Walgreen’s the other day and I love it! It goes on nicely and I love the matte texture…
(please pardon the nasty paint job…that’s another reason I don’t paint my own nails very often.)
This color is called Lavish. It also comes in a dark blue/black, a gorgeous teal and a pretty purple. It lasts several days, maybe 4, (which is a record for me, usually I only get a couple hours out of an at-home manicure) and came off super easily. It cost $5.99 at Walgreens.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know the Grammy’s were Sunday night. The fashion was, as usual, interesting to say the least. I couldn’t find a collage of my favorite looks by anyone I follow on Instagram…so, I created my own! (That’s not cheating, is it?)

Let’s face it, Gwen Stefani is amazingly gorgeous… she’s 45 (45?!?!), has been married for an extremely long time by Hollywood’s standards, and has 3 adorable boys! This outfit ROCKS!
Taylor Swift…T-Swizzle…whatever you call her, she looks unbelievable in this dress! So contemporary and classic at the same time…and those shoes! I would love to have those in my closet…in fact, I would love to have this whole ensemble in my closet!
Finally, Katy Perry. I’m not a huge fan of her music, but this dress is fabulous! I know it’s slightly see-through, but I don’t care! It’s not obscene. It looks itchy, but she looks gorgeous…and, I love the purple hair!

The Hubs and I haven’t worked on a “Getting Crafty…” project in quite a while. In fact, the last thing we created is still for sale in our shop on Etsy (hint, hint). Click HERE to see it.
We really don’t have much room for more DIY furniture, so I thought this idea was neat…
I have so many framed pictures that are still in boxes from when we moved here 3 and a half years ago. I haven’t put them out because I don’t have anywhere to put them! Who would of thought, going from an 1800 square foot house to 1600 square feet would make that much difference, but it did!

This one I made this week…
Breakfast for dinner! Yum! Click HERE for the recipe.
