Home Decor and Legs Galore

Hi everyone! It’s Tuesday and Veterans Day. Make sure to thank a vet today!

Our house finally has cable and internet, so I’m feeling way more connected to the world! It’s pretty pathetic that I can’t function without TV…but that’s life, so get over it.

This weekend, Chris and I did some home improvements, including our SICK new chalkboard wall!


How cute is that?! We used THIS chalkboard paint, which is cheap and easy to apply! Luckily I’m married to a former painting extraordinaire and this went up super quick!  I love the little personal touch in our kitchen! Soon this phone will hang on that naked phone jack:

As you can see above, the drink of the month is the Ginger Apple Smash. We decided that every month we’d switch it up, so if you want, I can make sure to list the recipes on Flex and Shout! I know alcohol and fitness don’t often go together on one blog, but I honestly think that there are few things as lovely as having a cocktail or two (or 6 or 8) with friends. Listen, I’m not telling you to go out and get wasted every day, but a couple drinks once in awhile is definitely part of my recovery and fitness plan.
