Mi’s Workout Plan Vol: I

I recently got a Physical as I was long past due. Good news, I checked out pretty healthy however I was told (and already knew) I need to exercise. I am what they call "Skinny Fat". This was not news to me as I've always held down my inner fat girl. I had already decided it was time to shed this "belly fat" so this was right on time. Before we get too deep let's start with some basic facts:
  • Age: 30+3
  • Children: 2
  • Weight: 130 lbs
  • Height: 5'5
Now based on those facts alone one would think I was the picture of health. For the most part I am however the good lord blessed me with excellent genetics. Those genetics alone kept me "Thin in the waist and cute in the Face" until about age 29. Then pre-30 set in and let me tell you a change had come.

DIY Costume: Owl

Hey Cuties,

This year I was really excited about Halloween a little more than usual. I now have "Costume Power" again. My son has been selecting his own costume for years now. I can't pick out little cute costumes that I love for him. That aint cool! Now that I have a little one I get "Costume Power" for at least the next 3 years. EXCITED!!!!

With all this power I started browsing the web early for thee cutest little girl costume ever. Now don't get me wrong, I found some super cute costumes but they came with a really cute price. I am not going to pay $50+ for a costume for my 9 month old that probably won't want the crap on her anyway. That didn't stop me from browsing though, now I was browsing for costume ideas. Do it yourself (DIY) ideas I found some really good stuff. Some were better suited for a baby that was walking. We aren't there yet. I continued to look and found a sushi costume (Nori is a type of seaweed, would have been cute right.) and then I saw an owl. I was hooked from then on. I began searching for DIY owl costumes and there were plenty out there. I had no idea. I then decided I would combine all the things I liked about the costumes and make it my own. That is just what I did.
