Yeah, I realize that Memorial Day is almost over & I'm just a little bit late wishing everyone a happy one, but I've had an extremely busy weekend & just haven't had the time to sit down & update my blog until now. Thursday & Friday, I did a yard sale & I'm happy to report, I made $400.00! WOO-HOO! At first, it was only $340 & then on Saturday morning, a lady came back & bought 2 full boxes of Beanie Babies from me for $60.00. Not sure if that was a smart move on my part, but I just wanted to get rid of them once & for all!
I sold all 14 of my old scrapbook albums for $5.00 a piece plus some scrapbook supplies, paper & I even sold one of my handmade caddies :) I decided to put them in the yard sale since I haven't had much success on Etsy. I received a LOT of compliments on them throughout the 2 days, which really made me happy! So with my hard-earned money, I splurged on myself & bought one of these:
Meet my new workout buddy.....an Ipod Nano :) I had an old Ipod, but gave it to our dd a while back since she finally decided that she wanted one. She kept saying she would never buy an Ipod because she liked her portable CD player. Boy, how teenagers change their minds, huh?
Anyway, I decided that I needed my own Ipod to take to the gym because the music at the gym.....well, let's just say.....it stinks! Sometimes there's some good songs on, but I just can't seem to get into most of the songs they play there. I just bought the Ipod yesterday, loaded up my songs on it last night & then today was it's trial run at the gym. Remember about 2 months ago when we purchased an Elliptical & I couldn't even do more than a minute or two on it? Well, tonight, I did.......20 minutes on the elliptical!!! I couldn't believe it! And it felt really good! Although I was exhausted afterwards. But I just know that listening to the music on my Ipod pushed me even harder :)
Now, I need some help......music help, that is. I want some upbeat, dancing type music for my Ipod & would love any suggestions you may have. You can either post them in a comment on my blog or email me (see sidebar for email)......let me know what your favorite dancing, hip-hop, movin' music is. I need some TUNES! :) I already have things like Sexy Back, 4 minutes, Double Dutch Bus (lol), Push It & a lot of Janet Jackson's songs. But I need MORE! What's on your playlist that you exercise to?
Off to finish watching the Red Wings, although I'm kinda, sorta, just a little bit secretly pushing for the Penguins (hey, they're my hometown team!). But I'll always be a Wings fan, too :) Before the lady bought the beanies from me, I got the 2 Penguins out of the box & have them displayed on top of our tv. I don't think Jim has even noticed them there yet ;)
