My husband prefers to work out at home, so we have turned one of the rooms in our house into a home gym. He needed a work out bench and some weights so he could do some additional things that don’t include our machine. We bought the Marcy Utility Workout Bench, but it came unassembled. We were supposed to assemble it together, but I was alone on Saturday and decided to give it a try. I put a couple of pieces on upside down and had to go back and fix it, but even with that it took me about 40 minutes.
I don’t have any wrenches or tools either, so I had to use some random tools that came with other things I have bought over the year. I’m pretty sure real tools would make it much easier to put it together and I could have done it faster.
I really love this bench. I may even have to use it myself if I ever decide I want to work out at home!!

It’s New Year’s Eve and we are headed to the casino for a fun-filled week. Tonight we will go to a party, then to the ZZ Top Concert. Tomorrow, we get to go to a special brunch with my sister-in-law. I’m sure we will find some time to gamble and play slots around that busy schedule. We want to start the year off winning!! (Don’t we all!!)
I already feel like a winner, as I was pleasantly surprised by this gray leopard print sweater. It fits so perfectly and is a cozy soft sweater material. I’m planning on wearing this to the casino this weekend, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!! They have lots of other color options and even some other prints. I may have to load up on these, because this is the perfect sweater to wear to work or with jeans! Dress it up or dress it down! I’m wearing a size small. The price is right, too!! It’s under $20!!

I got another sparkly tank top as an option for New Year’s Eve. I like the way this fits a lot, but I might be too cold in this, even in the casino. The back of this is just plain black, so if I wear it with a sweater or something, it could work. I got the small in this shirt. It also comes in other color options.
I also got these faux leather leggings, but I don’t think I would pair these two together other than to just try it on. The leggings feel really strange, like plastic or something. They are a little tight, but will probably stretch if I wear them. They hide all the bad stuff, so that’s a bonus to these leggings!! I’ll be set if someone has a Grease Party! Lol! I got the medium in the leggings.
I’m leaning towards the leggings with my over the shoulder sparkly shirt for New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to keep this shirt, because you never know when you’ll need something sparkly!!
I love the cheetah shirt that I got from Amazon!! It’s the perfect running around town shirt. I paired it with a black vest since it was a little cool outside. It’s long enough to wear with leggings and cute with jeans with the front tuck-in. I am wearing a small and I’m considering getting some of the other color options in this shirt. There is currently a 15% coupon, but no telling how long that will last!

I’m totally loving the batwing look. This sweater is so cute. It comes in several color options. I love the sweater material and will be wearing this every chance I get. This is a size small.
BTW, the belt I have on in the second picture is pretty awesome, too! It comes with three more belts, so there are lots of options. It’s a stretchy material in the middle. I’m only wearing this one since these pants are too big, but it can be worn to help style your outfit, too! Mine is a sized 26″-32″.
I have A LOT of hair and it drives me nuts when I try to get ready. I can’t let it air dry, because it looks like I have a perm when it dries. It’s not a cute perm; it’s a flat out mess. I have spent so much time drying my hair, then straightening it. If I am going out I have to dry, straighten and then curl. It’s just so time consuming, so I usually just wear it in a ponytail.
On a whim, I bought a hair dryer brush. I had one before and the bristles were so small that it didn’t work with my thick hair, but I wanted to give it another try. I’m sure glad I did. I was able to dry my hair today and didn’t have to straighten it afterwards! I highly recommend this dryer brush if you have thick curly hair!

I wasn’t really sure about this shirt when I bought it, but I really love it. It’s off the shoulder and it’s winged so it’s super comfortable. It’s also very soft. This one is a small, so it fits pretty true to size. I’m not sure where I’ll wear it, maybe a concert. I just know I can’t wait for the right opportunity!

I really like running outside, but in the winter it’s just too cold!! I found this headband that has a space for your ponytail that I think will make all the difference in the world! The fact that it’s cute and keeps my ears cold is a bonus!! This will be perfect for the Turkey Trot!
