Yep, this is happening. After having a baby and sitting at a desk all day, I had to figure out a way to incorporate some more movement in my daily life. I also got a FItbit Flex, and that was just another sad little reminder that I get nowhere near the recommended 10,000 steps per day. And then I found this little gem.

It’s a mini elliptical machine that fits underneath my desk. Genius!

I’ll let you know how it goes.

So I found out this today…

paper bracelet

How cool is this paper bracelet I found here? You can print out a blank one and decorate it however you want, or you can print this black and white striped beauty. It reminds me of something from the 60s, and you can print it out right at home.

Original Art

Original art by Mike Watson. Oh, you don’t know who that is? I don’t think it’s possible to live in Charlotte and not know who Mr.Watson is, but if you don’t, allow me to make the introduction.

A multi-talented, multi-faceted, multi-awesomeness dude, he’s known to emcee an event or two (check out his TEDX Charlotte event).

He is also on a quest (love it when men are on quests) to take his wife on an amazing trip to Amalfi, and to raise money for it he’s selling original artwork.

If you are interested (which, why wouldn’t you be?!), you can click¬†here to purchase your artwork. To see more of his work, check out
