Girls night

Hey everyone!! Last night my co-workers threw a party for another co-worker that's getting married. We went to the bar and danced the night away, it was really fun!! I made her a T-shirt and a pin for the event. I forgot to take a picture of the shirt once I put rhinestones all over it, but here is the almost finished product:







On the back I wrote BRIDE and then everyone could sign it. To make this tshirt I bought a plain fitted shirt from Michaels. Then I sewed on the candies to keep them secure. I wrote the wording with Sharpies and put a piece of cardboard in between the shirt, that way the marker won't bleed threw. It was a lot of fun to make! I'll have to find out this week if there is a pic of her with the shirt and the pin on that I can put up on here.



Also for valentines day, I ended up being very rushed for time, so I just made chocolate Lolli pops out of moulds and chocolate 'melts'. They are super easy to make, and only take 5-7 mins in the fridge. I made 25 for the girls at work.




























They look orange from my iPhone camera, but they are pink!


I hope everyone had a great week, hopefully I'll be able to start catching up on here! One of my best friends flew in from Newfoundland, so I'll be spending a lot of time with her this next week!!

Messy melty chocolate,

hellooo

Hellooo,
 What has everyone been up to lately? I have been very busy with work, university classes, & the gym!! My classes are done in March, & I am so excited because then I feel like I can finally breathe for a while. I think, for now, if I decide to take any more classes, I will do it once I am done work. I am loving the new gym that opened by my place, and I have started training using an iPhone app (can you believe it, you can really do just about ANYTHING with those phones.) Its called 'Couch to 5K' and its suppose to be that you go from never being able to run, to being able to run 5 kilometers after just 9 weeks! I am on week two so far and loving it (even though it HAS been kicking my butt!) I think the app costs about $2, best 2 I've spent so far! hahah I also downloaded the 'Nike training' app, it shows videos, and a lady (automated) talks to you through your work-out they give you. I am doing ab training on that one, and I really like it because she reminds me to straighten my back, tell me when I only 30 secs left & she even gives you a 'breather period' to just take a 30-60 second break! I feel I have much more energy & sleep better since I started working out again.
  This weekend I have two all day classes, but I am also going to try & film a special Valentines day video!! I am getting a little behind in the filming, but I hope to catch up by next weekend!

running legs & lots of homework,
