Random Tuesday Ramblings

So I haven't posted in a week. Sorry. I haven't really been motivated. I'm still fighting the lingerings of a cold and that with staying busy just makes me mentally drained and unmotivated to write anything.

So today's post will be a bunch of randomness.

Last night a few girlfriends and I went to one of our fave wine night events, Wine & Design. However, this time we weren't painting - we were gluing. Wine & Design in Mt. Pleasant tried out a new 'craft' last night. They purchased a ton of old windows from the Habitat for Humanity store. Then we took the colored, clear craft marbles you can get at like Michaels and created a design on our windows. Most of us opted for Palmetto Trees, but others did crabs, fish or other fun 'Charlestony' (yes, that's a word) designs.

It was surprisingly easy and something I think we could definitely do on our own. I really loved the way that mine turned out. They also had other materials we could use like sea shells, sand, glass tiles and beach glass, which I used for my Palmetto Moon. It was hard to get a good picture of it.

I want to try and figure out how to hang this somewhere so it catches sunlight through it. Not sure how I'm going to do it, but I would love the hang this out on our back deck or fence somehow.

The glue we used is super strong and weather resistant.

Wine & Design told us they plan to do this again next month, so keep an eye out if you're interested.

So, if you've been following my blog for a while now, you know how obsessed I am with Old Navy's Rock Star jeggings. Well, I was super excited when they recently came out with Rock Star Jegging capris! I'm the same size (went up lots of sizes as usual) in them as I am in the jeans and they are perfect for work, running errands, catching a movie, etc. As a shorty, I roll up the bottoms about two inches to form a cuff. Super comfy. Hooray.

I was also excited (my wallet, not so much) to find the Rock Star colored jeans in a new minty blue color! I snagged a pair online before they sold out in my size... they will be a nice addition to my pink, purple and green pairs. Yes, I may have a colored jean problem...but they get lots of wear out of them, I promise.... Hmm, I'm thinking my wardrobe may soon resemble Rainbow Row.

Today during lunch I ventured out to find some nice picture frames. I first stopped at Ross For Less thinking they'd have a selection like you could find at Marshalls and TJ Maxx...negative. They had barely any picture frames and they were all crappy. I did, however, walk out with (I paid for them of course) these adorable Nine West pink and straw wedge sandals for only $25! I love them!

So I went next door to Target assuming they'd have some higher end picture frame options. Not really. I ended up getting a few frames at Target that were just ok in my opinion...but I also walked out with a new bandeau bathing suit top and a bathing suit cover up as well. Stupid Target trap! It could have been much worse though. I purposely avoided certain aisles because I knew it could be trouble.

Has anyone tried the One-a-Day Vita Gummies? I recently read about someone taking them and loving them. I definitely need to take a daily multivitamin, but have struggled in the past with the typical One-a-Day capsules. Not only are they enormous and I hate feeling them all the way down my throat and in my stomach - but they always, always made me nauseous....even when I would take them after a big meal. So as a fan of fruit snacks, I thought the gummy vitamins might be a nice alternative to try. I just took my first 'dose' of them about an hour ago...so far, no nausea. They do have 10 calories and 3g of sugar...but that's nothing, right?

How is everyone else's week going? I will play catch up and read your blogs tonight...I've been reading now and then when I've had a chance, but have been really bad about leaving comments - as in, not leaving comments. I'll try to not be such a lurker. :)

Happy week everyone!

That's a super cool project! never seen that done before at a Wine and paint type place. I may need to check that out! :)

I love gummie vitamins, but I love gummies. So I can't take gummie vitamins or else I'll eat the entire bottle. Ate almost half a bottle of fiber gummies before. LOL NOT a happy stomach....
