5 on Friday!

Linking up again for 5 on Friday!


I used this tutorial to make lables using Excel and they're awesome! I can't wait to finish my little organizing project I've got going on. I'll post all about it, don't you worry!


Through my Instagram friends, I've found a little shop called The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery that has the cutest patterns and an awesome program. You pay for a sampler pattern (I'm gonna do this years, the Once Upon a Time one), and you get emailed with the next piece of the pattern every few weeks. How awesome is that!? I had a really hard time getting set up to do it though, but after over an hour and a half looking online, I found a Canadian store online that had good shipping rates. Everything should be here by the time I get back from vacation. :)


So I just finished day 1 of week 2 of the C25K program (Check it out here if you've got no idea what I'm talking about. There are several apps that can be downloaded to train you!) and I've so far run it all on my treadmill. I bought this thing about 2 years ago now, and it gathered dust the whole time I was pregnant and during this summer, since I walked outside basically every day. But since temperatures have hit sub zero, and I've got a goal to run a 5K this year, I've dusted it off and started this beginner running program. Well, the treadmill was driving me nuts. Probably to the point where I would have likely given up on the program or hurt myself. The tread thing slid all over the place, made the craziest grinding sounds, and would actually go forward if my foot hit it just right. I am sure I would have hurt myself eventually! Anyway, I complained about it to my sister in law, and she told me just how to fix it! Genius! There are 2 little holes that have screws in them that you can use to tighten the track and align it properly. Now it runs amazing! Woo hoo!! Thanks Sable!


Maxwell Designs, an awesome Canadian company, started an ambassador/champion program. I'm now an official Champion! So exciting! There are a lot of awesome reveals coming up soon. You should really check them out, they've got a bunch of super cute, great products! 

I bought a change purse and a key fob from them this summer, then I bought a diaper clutch. Then I won a FB contest from them and got a diaper wallet, change purse, and key fob. I gave the diaper wallet and change purse with fob away to a couple of friends who I thought would enjoy them. Then I bought another diaper clutch, change purse, and a cosmetic purse. I'm in the market to get a new wet bag but I seriously can't decide what colour to get!! UGH! I know, first world problems! 

PS. They're having their 2014 fabric reveal on Jan 13 on Fb! Can't wait! 


I can barely hold in my excitement. AppleCheeks is revealing a new colour on Valentines day! Hey Casey! Guess what I want for Valentines day!? I know it's a long shot, but I can still hope deep down in my soul that it's going to be girly (pink/purple). Sigh. 


  1. I just found the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery! I'm getting the sampler for my mom's birthday so we can do it each month together :)

    1. Aww that's a really great idea! It'll be something for me to look forward to doing when I get home from vacation! ;) Thanks for stopping by!
