Friday Finds!

I read on my friend Kim's blog that another blogger Colleen started Friday Find's a few weeks, since I had this post ready I though I would join in!!!

Oxygen Magazine...I have only bought the Jan and Feb issues, but so far I love this magazine. It is not full of HUGE body builder women, but instead is full of FIT women. I love the magazine Clean Eating, and this seems to be along the same lines, with one of their Food experts-Tosca Reno-writing a column or two. I am really wanting to get my body in great physical shape, and there are really great workout exercises in here that are easy to follow, and some great recipes too! I have found it very motivating!!

Another fun thing I have found are these....


Sharpie Pens!!! I LOVE Sharpies...and I LOVE black pens that are not "roller ball" and have a fine point...well, here they are!!! AND the best part about them is, they do not bleed through the paper!!!

Along the lines of Oxygen Magazine...I found Daily Plate. It is a free way to track your meals/calories and Fitness. I am not usually obsessed with doing that, but it has been very interesting to visually see what I am eating and how I am burning my calories.

Go to: and then click on Daily Plate.

P.S. Don't forget the great new Artist I recently discovered...Melody the post below!

Books Books Beautiful Books!!

I have always LOVED reading ever since I was a little girl...reading was always one of my favorite pastimes. It seems as the years have passed, I go through phases where I read like mad, and then...nothing. As my Boys have gotten older, my reading time slowly re-appeared, and then after bringing home Lucy it took a backseat as we adjusted to life with a 4 year old.

So, this year, I plan to make time to once again enjoy my favorite pastime...there are so many wonderful books I want to read...I have begun stacking them on my bedside table so they will call to me as I climb into bed everynight. As a way to motivate myself and keep track of all the books I have read this year...I am going to keep a list on my sidebar and look forward to watching it grow~
