Tuesday Things

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?

  • I LOVED Counting by 7s. I didn't think I was going to–the protagonist seemed a little too precocious/precious–but I fell in love with her. Now I push that book on everyone. 🙂 And because I've been sick for nearly 3 weeks, I had a great excuse to not go to the gym, but that's coming to an end. Sigh. I'd really rather read than sweat.

    • Sweating is probably my least favorite activity but I'm trying to learn to like it. Something about this upcoming birthday has me feeling a bit skittish and thinking it's time to take care of the machine.
