How I've Been Keeping Busy

Thursday, April 9, 2020


Needlepointing has been so much fun! I started this hobby last year because I was looking for something for stress relief. I purchased this key-chain kit back in November and never started it, so this was the perfect opportunity to start. Below is the pillow kit I just purchased which I cannot wait to finish. I highly recommend checking out Etsy for kits or seeing if any local places have an online shop.

I purchased the pillow kit to go on my couch in the living room. It came with all of the supplies to completely finish it, so I will share an update when it is done!


I love working out because it makes a huge difference with some health issues that I have and not being able to go to my studio has been really hard. My studio though has been absolutely amazing and created a Facebook group to stream classes live every day.  They have been absolutely phenomenal workouts and even if you do not have some sort of workout studio, there are tons of YouTube videos for free! I am doing a mix of my classes and walking/walking my dog every day.


I actually love cooking and meal prepping, so I have used this time to try some new recipes! This is probably the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had and it came out of a box. After following the directions on the box, I added a little cream cheese, shredded cheese, and parmisean. We topped with gluten free bread crumbs and put it in the oven on broil for between 5-10 minutes. It was SO SO good!


Some of you may have noticed the new logo (I love the new design!) it is simple and clean. I have been trying to use this time to blog more because I truly love it. It feels like I am writing in a diary or sharing my outfits with my girlfriends and I feel so thankful to have this time to spend on it.


Here's a list of the blogs I have been reading lately. Everyone has been so awesome at sharing cool things like ways to help people or better yourself during this time, and fun things like outfits etc. I have also been watching fun hair and makeup videos ha!
