These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I wore them in Japan for two weeks, walking 8-10 hours a day. Earth shoes are cool in general because they put your heel lower than your toe, aligning your spine correctly and toning your calf while you walk. I <3 them.
I polished each of these 7 books off in less than 24 hours because I just couldn't put them down.
Mixx Myra #shoes. The reason I repin so many heels is because they are soooo cute and I can't walk in them to save my soul.
Bound Headstand Against a Wall: From Bound Headstand with Straight Legs, step both feet onto the wall, walking them up so your thighs are parallel with the floor. Keep your legs straight to increase flexibility in your hamstrings and lower back, and draw your navel toward your spine to work your abs. Hold here for five breaths.
This is a calf of the dairy industry. This is a veal crate. This little guy is put in here 24-48 hours after birth and will never see his mother again. He'll live in here for a few weeks until he's grown a bit, and then he'll be sent to the slaughterhouse. Calves are kept in these crates so they can't move around, so that their muscles stay "tender" for veal meat. They are fed a formula because humans drink the milk that was meant for them. Don't support the dairy industry. GO VEGAN.
I've made these banana bars several times and people swear I put crack in them :) They are YUMMY!
Planks are effective on their own, but add a stability ball in the mix and you'll really feel the burn in this core and butt-toning move. Lie on an exercise ball under your belly and walk your hands out until the ball is under your shins. Your hands should be directly under your shoulders. Draw your navel toward your spine to engage your abs and stabilize your torso. Lift your left leg up, squeezing your glute, then slowly lower your leg back onto the ball. Switch sides and lift the right ...
These boots are awesome. They are so comfortable to walk in and I love the height. I get many compliments on them because they're
Birkenstock Yara Sandals - Antique Brown Brand new pair of Birkenstock Yara's. I just purchased these a few days ago. They are amazing and beautifully made shoes, just a tad bit too big for my feet. I wore these for 2 days in a row to break them in a bit so there is super light wear. Other than that they came brand new in the box. Birkenstock box will come with purchase. I normally wear a size 7-8(max) but these would be best for someone a size 8-8.5. Maybe even a 9 depending on how you like your birks to fit. Birkenstock Shoes Sandals
pick your running shoes correctly. I've had the same ones since high school... let's just say that's a lot longer than 4 months! Shopping time!
how to clean VERY smelly shoes ... spray inside with alcohol ... let dry for 24 hours ... put baking soda in 'foot' of panty hose & let sit in DRY shoes for at least another 24 hours ... then to keep fresh smell, re-insert baking soda stockings for shoe storage ... this had better work because the SMELL of my teenage sons shoes is MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE!
For my boy
Previous pinner: TRUST ME when I tell you that these are the BEST "whitening strips" available. Walmart brand and are strips but instead of those sticker like things you put on your teeth, these are actually like WAX trays that you bed to conform to your teeth. These work MUCH BETTER than those "white strips" because they are harder and more like a "tray" that fits over your teeth. These are quite harsh so if you are sensitive don't buy them!
The kind of shoes I wore as a toddler. 1950's White Leather Lace-Up Baby Walking Shoes: I got them for my kids too
In more ways than one. When your life isn't going smoothly it will reveal them, and when their lives aren't as smooth either. I've had people jump to treating me poorly because their choices weren't doing any favors for them, and no matter how much I just tried to be there I had to repeatedly tell them I wasn't a whipping post. Too bad they didn't understand before I had to cut them out.
Do it yourself I Spy Books... take pictures of your kids' toys, print photos and put them in a cheap photo album. I've seen this idea many

I put this in Crafting. O_O because I could probably make them.
The Fast Lower-Ab Workout|Yes, these muscles are tricky to target, but toning them pays off—and not just in swimsuit weather.
Doll Shoe. I am sorry for bad quality of this photo, I have just dropped it in because I was asked about what they are made of. It's jewelry wire and metal beads and lots of hours of twisting :) The most incredible thing about the shoes - that the doll can actually stand on them... if you do not breath while looking at her :D

I like the following photo's because of what they are wearing, pantyhose, tights, socks, shoes, outfits, dresses or skirts or the woman is cute. They are in no sort of order except that I like them dressed!! A woman that is dressed nice is a bigger turn on than a woman naked. Yes I have pantyhose/tights and high heel fetish.
The trick is to put the pan in a cold oven and then switch it on and begin your timer. Im amazed how many people dont know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. I hate getting SPLATTERED!! This works perfect! I've tried it and we love it!
Yup, you are not seeing things, I put a diaper in the bottom of all my pots! Why, because a diaper will help retain the moisture in your
THAT'S SO SMART
Vegetarian Tamale recipe. :) These are absolutely fabulous. I substituted earth balance for the butter, and Mom made a scrumptious mix of veggies (not unlike what's in the recipe) to put inside. It really doesn't suffer from not having cheese. AND they freeze really, really well and take about the same amount of time to steam two weeks later (we just had them for supper last night). :)
Verses for boys outer space bedroom. Psalm 8:3-5 New Living Translation (NLT) When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers the moon and the stars you set in place what are mere mortals that you should think about them human beings that you should care for them? Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor.
I was a little skeptical about ordering boots online, but these are great. Walked in them all day the first time I wore them! Also good
Now, I'm not usually a smoothie person, mostly because I have high hopes for my smoothies. I want them to be a meal in itself. I want them to be filling and satisfying. I want them to be healthy. And sweet. And delicious. Simply put I want them to be my everything. Yet they rarely are. They are
Oh how I love these! Pogacsa are little Hungarian cheesy biscuits that, if made correctly, are so buttery they will melt in your mouth! My grandma's are amazing, but she is the type of cook who does a "pinch of this and that" and I need a very specific recipe because I am not a good cook.

"[...] People seem to become what's put in front of them--much like we become what eat. Those who work with children know this. It should be no surprise then, that young people today are more alienated from the very planet we call home than any generation before; the earth simply isn't put in front of them." -Whole Systems Design, LCC
Possibly the smartest thing I've ever done. Put a ten dollar kiddy pool in your actual pool. Bugs can't crawl in because of the height of the sides and it feels like a water bed. It's better than any actual pool floaty I've ever purchased.
