Fitness Influencer’s who can make 10,000 dollars for an instagram post!

Happy Good Friday!

Remember how I told you that I’ve decided to rip old the janky, stanky carpet in our den?  Well, I got tired of waiting for MacGyver to say when so I got started.

And today is Good Friday with Sunday being Easter of course and we are leaving to head down to Nokomis for a 4 day mini vacay smack dab in the middle of a reno.  My OCD is on fire right now and my eye twitch has reached new levels, unheard of in modern science, trust!  Don’t be surprised if you turn on the television and see me on modern medical mysteries.

The dogs have already gotten their Easter baskets.

I’m not an expert but I’d say they love them.

Before we head off to Nokomis I wanted to share with you an article from earlier in the week that I found profoundly interesting.

It’s all about Influencer’s.  The top Influencer’s to be exact.  Some of them can make as much as 300,000 dollars per you tube video.  Some of them have more Instagram followers than the entire population of New York City!  Are you hearing these numbers?  And I mean really hearing these numbers?

In case you hadn’t heard Forbes Magazine is now publishing a quarterly list of the top 10 influencers in three categories, Fitness, beauty and home.

These thirty influencer’s are the stars of the industry with platforms on You Tube, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Here are the top Five for Fitness:

The article gives you a brief bio on all ten for each category.  It’s very interesting.  You can also read about how they determined who the top influencer’s are and what other categories they’ll be adding in the coming months such as gaming, etc.  Check it out, it’s very interesting.

Have a wonderful Friday and a Happy Easter!

Good Friday

This week is coming to an end but this weekend is going to be full of festivities and family time.  My heart couldn’t be happier but before we get to it I wanted to tell you about some of my favorite things from the week.

The kid came down to Nokomis with us for his days off which are Thursday and Friday.  Yesterday he and I spent the morning visiting some of the local thrift shops and we had a ball.

The bargains here are insane!

After all the bargain hunting we wanted to decompress a bit so while MacGyver was helping to trim a tree for a neighbor the Kid and I took out the kayaks.

Look at that view…

We tried to find a certain canal that leads up to a long creek that the kid discovered for the first time a few years ago.  Unfortunately, we went the wrong way for a while and by the time we figured out the right way it looked like a storm was rolling in so we headed back.  We didn’t care that we didn’t find the canal because we had a great time.

That’s the kid way back there soaking up every minute of it.

In case I haven’t mentioned it like 300 times, my niece and nephew are in town and I know of two dogs who are over the moon with all the attention that they’ve been getting.

This picture warms my heart.

True love, unconditionally.

Another favorite from the week was running on this beautiful trail with my sister in law.  As far as sister in laws go, I struck gold with both of mine.  But they’re not just great sister in laws, I truly love the both of them as if they were my own sisters, they are wonderful, wonderful people and if you are lucky enough to know either one of them your world is much brighter, I promise you.

Have a Happy Easter!

Tell me about one of your favorites from the week.
