Sorry about the paint samples on my walls - picking paint colors is difficult (I'm going with the green, by the way). That's the blanket my friend crocheted for me, on my Queen-sized bed. She made each square individually and then had to crochet them all together. It's warm and fluffy and I love snuggling under it. I know a little stitched throw pillow isn't much, but it's something and it came from the heart so that is what I will do.
Now, for Mario.

I really like how he's turning out. One full and one partial page done to the end of the row, and then I'm going to start working on it vertically starting with the next row.
I've been trying to find an exercise I like doing. I really liked pole-dancing when I did it, but I can't afford it right now. (If you've never tried it - DO IT! It makes you feel like a sexy, powerful, confident GODDESS. The only side-effect is that once you've gone upside down down a pole without using your hands, you'll want to try your moves on every pole you walk by.) I have gym membership and do weight lifting (I try twice a week but sometimes only do once). I like running when Boyfriend and I could go together, but we can't right now so no likey. I do like to walk, though. So I'm going to try to walk 50 miles a month for a total of 600 in the year. Keeping track and will report at the end of each month. We'll see how I do!
