Adventure Aweights

Friday evening Shane and I went on a little adventure to a town about 30 minutes away. We’d never been there before, and weren’t sure what we were getting ourselves into, but we knew it needed to be done.

The day before, I was perusing around Craigslist and found an epic deal for a weights set. We’d been talking about picking up one for a while now, and then we found a deal we couldn’t refuse! So off we went.

We took Shane’s truck to pick up the goods:

It only took about 15 minutes to break it down and load up the truck, so afterwards we headed over to our BFF’s house nearby to stop and chat for a while – was so good to see them! But then the next day, our “work out room” became much more legit.


Before we just had a couple sets of dumbbells, a clothes holder – I mean an ab lounge, and this elliptical:


And theeennnn…

I think today’s going to be a weights day 😉

Have you ever bought or sold anything off of Craiglist? What was your experience?


It was so fun reading what you guy’s thought of my accent on yesterday’s accent post :) However, I still don’t know what you’re referring to by a Midwestern accent. Is that the same as a Chicago accent?

I also saw a few of you did one as well – it’s so fun to listen to them 😀

Well I’m off to go to some strength training upstairs(!!!) I hope you all have a great Sunday!

  1. I’ve sold a few things on Craigslist but never bought anything. Nice weight set!

  2. Yay! Now you guys have a one stop shop! That is such a great idea to have a “home gym” area – especially during winter in the midwest! Is Shane going to start pumping iron and get sick ripped? 😉 Glad you guys got a good deal and (Bonus!) got to see M&B :)

  3. You have a sweet little setup there! Love it!

  4. I stalking CL like crazy for a few table-like items. I get skeezed out by anything with upholstery or bed-bug infesting material (i.e. couches, beds, etc).

    It’s definitely fun to see what design blogs do with some old finds!

  5. I would lovelovelove to have a setup like that one day. Something to strive for, I guess!

  6. Wow, super jealous of your weights bench! I don’t have the room for one, but I must admit that it would be really useful to be able to workout at home sometimes. As it is, I just have adjustable DBs. They are good in a pinch, but a proper bench with a bar and plates: *drool* 😀

  7. I just sold a textbook on Craigslist! Now I need to find out how to ship it…

  8. The last time I moved I sold a bunch of stuff on Craigslist. I tried to always make the exchange at work or somewhere public though. I was a little bit creeped out by it.

    Yay for your weight bench, that is awesome!
