We have planned to do our first 5k a few months ago and we picked the electric run. I got a deal on groupon for two tickets and upgraded tech tee for $95. I thought it would be cool since I love wearing neon and glow bracelets lol.
We decided to head to a local pub near the stadiums called pickles pub they have a great crab pretzel by the way. Then it was time to meet our friends and get the race started.
Thank goodness I paid extra to get our packets sent to us because the lines were very large and they had to pay extra for that as well which was crazy. Some said that once they got up there it was all over the place and not organized at all. I noticed there wasn’t much organization at the starting line either.
We had a good time but if anyone asked me if I would pay next year to go to the race I would say no thanks. I was disappointed in the fact there wasn’t many decorations as they show on their website. I understand each venue is a little different but the decorations were spread out and it looked very thrown together really. I was expecting a lot more tunnels and lights. I am thinking maybe the venues that offer the race for two days like dc and New York maybe have more decorations but have never been so I am not sure. Anyways here is some pictures of the electric run race in Baltimore.
I am also glad the weather in Baltimore was great last sat night it was low 80′s and no rain whoooo hoooo.

I love betta fish and they are so easy to take care of and I love the fact their tanks stay clean much longer then other fish. I don’t even have my betta in a tank he is in a large vase. He is purplish and purple is my favorite color as well and seem fitting since we live in Baltimore to name him raven lol.
I will share a picture of raven shortly. But I wanted another betta a unique one but I don’t think that will happen because I am not sure about having a fish shipped lol I found on Pinterest some rare colors for bettas and not sure if the pictures were photoshopped but none the less they are very cool looking.
Raven looks a little purple and black in these pics but either way he has our football team colors lol
Here are the pics of the ones I found on Pinterest so rare looking wish they sold these at petsmart.

I need to see if rit makes a color to dye a section of my sofa that has faded due to the sun. I love keeping my curtains open but with that comes a price to pay my sofa lost the red color and is white. So looking on Pinterest I found some cheap ways to extend the life of my sofa.
Here is a pick of the side facing my patio doors.
So here are a few pics that I got from Pinterest and the rit website of others that have used the dye since my sofa isn’t a slip cover I have to dab it and since we won’t be sitting on that side I painted it shouldn’t have to be rinsed off but we will see how it goes. I stopped at joann fabrics and picked up two colors I thought would match going to wait to get my husbands thoughts on which will match the best.
You can’t tell by the pics which one will match the best but cherry red is a little darker color so need more peoples input but if no one will be able to see it really I guess it won’t matter much since it is still by the window.
Below is the pics I found of other peoples projects.

I wish I had a bigger deck and could build one of these cool benches. I found these on Pinterest. Not sure which websites they came from to give credit to the website or photographer.
These are such cute additions to any deck and easy to do according to the blogs.

I found a really cool website called jewlr and the rings stone can be changed and it actually shows you what the ring will look like. They can be expensive depending if u want a certain type of gold etc and which stones u choose. Take a look at the ones I created and they have tons more.

Using a jar I bought at the dollar store and an old candle votive, I spiced them up using acrylic paint, glitter, and mod podge!
What you’ll need:
- Mod podge
- Paint brush
- Paper plate
- Acrylic paint
Here is what I did..
Step 1: Using your choice of color, paint the jar with even brushstrokes. Then place upside down on a flat surface (hence paper plate) to allow any excess paint to drip out. Make sure that it is completely dry before you move on to the next step.
Step 2: Using a small paintbrush (I used a cheap one that came with a paint kit) apply a small amount of mod podge to the rim of the jar.
Step 3: Pour about a tablespoon worth of glitter onto a paper plate.
Step 4: Dunk the jar into the glitter making sure to cover all areas that have been mod-podged. Make…
