You may have heard about my love of stickers? Well, last a fall a blog I love posted about a sticker subscription service, and I loved the idea and bookmarked it and then promptly forgot about it. Then about a month ago, I met a mom for coffee who is actually friends with the creator of this company, and I was reminded. So today, I headed over to Pipsticks and ordered a subscription using a coupon code from their Facebook page. While I was there, I started looking around at the fun printables and ideas they had on their site and I LOVE this idea. Sticker reward charts are a big deal in this house right now. So…anyway, more talk of stickers. If you have kids (or happen to be like me – a seven year old at heart), you should look into it. I’m surprised at how reasonable the prices are for 15 sheets of cute, cute stickers.
In other news: Go Badgers. It was sad watching them lose yesterday, but I had a great time watching them play and was so impressed with them as a team. I remember going to games at The Field House as a student (I’m old) and can’t imagine how thrilling it would be to actually be there to see “Frank the Tank” play in person (I have to admit, I have a bit of a crush).
On the needles: A shawl and a pair of socks.
Off the needles: Nothing. I haven’t been knitting much of anything lately because I’ve been…
Reading: Defending Jacob, The Orphan Train, Counting by 7s, and Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1). I gave up on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy a little over half-way through. Maybe I’ll come back to it – I just felt the whole thing was kind of discombobulated and over my head.
Watching: Scandal and Nashville. Mad Men is starting up again and I’m impatiently waiting for HBO Now to come online so I can be ready for Game of Thrones.
I’ve also been heading to this Cross-Fit gym a couple of times a week for the last couple weeks. I’m absolutely loving it (which is quite a surprise) because it feels so much like playing did as a kid (though I don’t remember ever being sore after a day on the playground). I also LOVE that there aren’t mirrors everywhere. The last thing I want to see when I’m working hard is my fat sweaty tomato face. The trainer I have is also extremely helpful and encouraging. I made one of my really good friends promise to bop me upside the head of I started talking workouts and Crossfit all the time so hopefully I won’t get too annoying (and if I do, I welcome you virtually bopping me upside the head as well) Also, I can promise you…never, ever, ever will there be any discussion of me going paleo.
So that’s me. Happy Tuesday! Are you looking forward to anything this week?
