DIY'ers #32 and Marathon Weekend

First off, let me apologize that this post is going up a little late. I let myself sleep in this morning because we have the day off today - recovering from marathon weekend!

Marathon 2

Yesterday Justin & I both ran the Twin Cities Marathon!! It was Justin's first (and last) marathon, and he finished in 4:09. He did so great!! I was my 4th marathon (and maybe last...we'll see) and I finished in 4:17.

But enough about us. It's time for The DIY'ers!! Now that I'm not training anymore, I'm excited for some inspiring ideas!! So bring 'em on.

Here are my three favorite link-ups from last week's party.
