Top 2 Tuesday - Things I want to accomplish and a DIY

This weeks T2T is:
things that I want to accomplish

1. to run an the entire time for my next half marathon [Oct. 17th]
I think i was just slightly impressed that I finished my last 1/2... this time I want to run the entire time and better my time!
2. Purchase a nice camera and take photography lessons
[this is a must have to me prior to having babies.... no worries Mom - this is not any time soon!]

head on over to taylor's blog and link up

ALSO:

today i spent all day with this little diva in training
molly

how cute is my Goddaughter?
I normally do not get much into the halloween flare around my house [i'm mainly a xmas decorator] however, i got the urge to burn my leaves candle from BBW and it has instantly put me in the mood to decorate for the fall

i had been wanting to do something new for my 1/2 bath and this is what i came up with

both the orange & white and black dots are scrapbook paper
and the letters are glittered chip board

i cut the circles out with a fiskars 2" round punch
and adhered them all with spray glue

Happy Monday! It was so nice to be able to have the day off from work [my first one since April 1st].... I got a lot accomplished today... now onto a 4 day work week!

I am impressed you can even finish a 1/2 marathon. They would have to roll me over the finish line! I know you can run the whole thing though!
