Five for Friday

1. I haven't been having the best week. There have been some stressors at home and I haven't been sleeping well. With working three days this week, & taekwondo back to a three days a week schedule, I've been quite tired and maybe, just maybe a little irritable. I know this isn't the best way to start a post, but I also feel that I shouldn't have to pretend everything is perfect, when, in reality, it's not.

2. I read a non-fiction book this week. Not my genre of choice, but the title caught my eye at the library: Skinny Chicks Don't Eat Salads. It was a good read with lots of information to keep in mind when making healthy choices (one of my goals for the new year), but a little unrealistic in some areas with when to eat. But some things I'll definitely be trying.

3. I did Day 4 of the 30 Day Shred yesterday. (Shh, don't tell, but I've started this workout program twice before and never made it to Day 3!) The plan was to do Day 5 today, but with so few hours of sleep last night, I just couldn't do it. But, tomorrow, I will. I promise.

4. I am blessed with wonderful, suppportive friends and I'm ever so thankful for them.

5. We've been watching How to Train Your Dragon & Despicable Me over & over. I love them both equally.

Bonus: I posted Winter Sketch #3 on the MSS Blog today. The sketch is Sketch #57 from Inspired Blueprints & this is the layout I made with it:

Thanks for looking!
Have a good weekend!

Love the page, you are so talented. I would be sure to have a few broken bones doing half what you do.

And love all the pink in the previous post, the quilt turned out great.

The great thing about scrapbooking (and all the peeps you get to know through it) is that it can be really therapeutic in good times and bad! I always struggle with including the tougher times in my pages - thanks for the inspiration to "keep it real"!
