Last weekend, I had gone on vacation with a few friends, as there was a festival going on.
It was so much fun!!
There were a lot of games, food, music, and rides. I checked out some of everything.
One of the games they had was the goldfish ping pong game. In their game, if you got five ping pong balls in bowls, you could get a hermit crab instead of the fish. That's what I decided to do when I played.
Besides going to the festival, I went swimming a few times with my friends, and just hung out a bit.
The day we were going back home, my friends did a Christmas in July celebration. They didn't tell me they were going to do that, so I didn't get anything for them, and I wasn't expecting to get anything myself.
But, I got three different presents, which really surprised me.
I got four different sizes of knitting needles (two sizes of which I already had), some yarn, and a baking book.
I am really into knitting and baking, so I was (and am) very happy with what I got.
The friend that gave me the knitting stuff said that if I wanted to, she could take me to the store to exchange what I didn't want or need for something I did want or need.
I decided to exchange the needle sizes I already had for ones I wanted/needed.
She also got me more yarn, some sewing needles (for sewing in the ends of the yarn for when a project is finished), and a bottle of lavender and vanilla scented lotion.
All in all, I had a wonderful time with my friends!!

Earlier this week, I went to a craft circle at a friend's house. Besides my friend and I, one other person was there.
I had a good time, and I'm glad I went.
We decorated and ate cookies, ate pizza, and worked a bit on our individual projects.
With my project, a shawl, I hadn't worked on it in over a year, so I forgot how to do the stitch pattern used for the shawl, but was able to figure it out after a few minutes, which I'm really happy about.
All in all, it was a good day, and I'm glad my friend invited me. I love doing crafts, so this was perfect for me.

I created a motivation board on Pinterest for such things, which you can check out here, if you like.
The things I am planning on putting on my wall/board are about exercising more (by taking up yoga, Pilates, and/or Zumba, walking more, bike riding, swimming, and/or other exercises), getting my room cleaned up and walls painted, getting a job, inspirational quotes, and maybe a few other things.
Hopefully friends (and family!) will help me in this process as well, in actually getting my motivational things done. Here's to motivation/inspiration!!
