DIY Projects - Hand Warmers

I made these adorable hand warmers yesterday & wanted to share this DIY project here on the blog!  These super cute hand warmers are a great gift for the holidays!  I will admit this project is not the easiest but it's really not super difficult either.  I'm not very skilled when it comes to sewing so if you are, this project will be much easier for you than it was for me!  I also got a little out of control when I was filling them with rice and...let's just say that there was a lot of rice to clean up when the project was complete! As long as you have some basic sewing skills and you don't dump rice all over your crafting station, this should go pretty well!  Here's how to make your own hand warmers...

The Cup Song

via Pinterest
This is super random but this is something that made me smile and I'm sure it will bring a smile to your face too!  A while back, I learned The Cup Song and on a day that I should have been doing my homework, I sat down and recorded a video of the cup song instead.  I ended up putting it on our Meg and The Beard YouTube station.  You can watch it in the video below...

Feeling Fancy

Last week, I finally caved and signed up for a Gwynnie Bee account!  Ever since I started my new job last month, I have been spending way more money on clothes than I usually do.  Long story short, I have been working in animal hospitals for a loooong time and working in an animal hospital = wearing scrubs to work!  I started a new job at a music school about a month ago and for the first time in years, I have a job that I get to dress up for!  Dressing up is fantabulous!!  The only negative is that I have a reason to go dress shopping and that is dangerous for my bank account...enter Gwynnie Bee!  Essentially, you pay a monthly fee and get to rent adorable clothing.  If you get something that you absolutely love and just can't part with, you can purchase it!  Pretty sweet deal if you ask me! 

I am currently doing the free 30 day trial but I'm already in love and couldn't help but share said excitement here on the bloggity blog!  I've decided that I'm going to add a new weekly "what I wore" post each time I get a new article of clothing from Gwynnie Bee.  Here's the first post...

Another Year Over & A New One Just Begun

It's official guys....I am in the last year of my twenties!!!  As my 28th year came to a close on Sunday, I realized that I once again did not complete my list for the year BUT I crossed a ton of things off this time!  With a total of 28 things on my 28 List, I only left 12 behind and a few of them are rolling over onto the 29 List.  

Sunday was such a wonderful day!  I actually started celebrating my birthday Wednesday evening  when I got out of work and then just kept on celebrating through Monday was awesome!  Monday night I sat down and starting working on my list for this year and it's almost done!  Until then, here are a few snip its from my happy happy birthday!

Completing My 28 List!

I have been seriously cracking down on my 28 List over the past couple of days!  It's funny because every year, on my birthday, I make this list and every year I end up crossing a bunch of things off right before my next birthday.  What can I say?  Apparently, I work well under pressure!!  This year, I have to give myself some credit because I ended up crossing things off throughout the year...not all of them, but quite a few!  Time just goes by so fast!  Before I knew it, it was February and my list was still full of things to do.  Here are the fun things I've been crossing off my list over the past few days...

Take My Hand & Take My Whole Life Too

Hey everyone! Happy Happy March!!  Something incredibly special happened last month and life has been so bananas that I haven't had a chance to gush about it here on my bloggity blog.  In February, Toph & I went away to Cape Cod with my family.  Every year, my dad's side of the family gets together in the Cape for a family reunion.  The first night we were there, we went out on a very fancy date at the Yarmouth House.  This fancy date crossed number 12 off of my 28 List!  When I put "go on a fancy date" on my list last year, I didn't really know what to expect but what I do know is that this fancy date exceeded my expectations.  The place was beautiful with exposed beams, christmas lights and candles.  To top that off the food was delicious, they had my favorite wine and I was there with my favorite fella on a really special evening.  I say special evening because the next night, HE PROPOSED!
