Putting Pins to Use

The first step to “healthy living and not going stir crazy, was stopping by pinterest. You know all the pins you have, that you put on your boards, in hopes you will change your house, start working out, and making crazy amounts of sweets. Ok that might just be a few of my boards haha


I have attempted many pins, but mostly workouts, and so far they have been great! But in the past week or so, I have been really looking at my house. There are many projects I just haven’t tackled because of time, laziness, or no plan. So the past weeks, I have been planning. I am not wanting to overdue it, so I wanted to start with the linen closet.

I didn’t want to go crazy. I also knew that my energy level is still pretty low. I can do about one thing a day, that lasts an hour or two, and then I am done for the day. It is still crazy to me, but I am starting to be ok with it haha.

So I found these pictures, and had dreams of my house







those were just a few ideas I used to gather some supplies. I looked at target, and Walmart, but I really hit the jack pot at Hobby Lobby.


Everything was on sale, except for the large brown tote, but I used a 40% off for that.

Then it was time to assess the damage…



So everything came out, the closet was cleaned, and then it took time to figure out where everything would go.


But I think it turned out great!


I also have a plan to have a garage sale this summer, and at the same time,

I took many items out and put downstairs for that! Tackling two tasks at once 🙂

Question for you:

What a whirlwind of a week. I thought summer was suppose to be relaxing?

Well after our “little visitor” last week, I had to have the whole house sprayed and fogged.

I swear my house looked condemned haha

After all of that, I had to wash EVERYTHING.

Today was basically store, laundry, and bathroom cleaning day. Sounds SOOO exciting haha


Besides getting my house sprayed, and cleaning all day, I do have good things happening!

In a week I will have a one year old staying with me for 6 days! I can’t wait to have him, but I have to start getting the house ready. I work Friday, and then Andrew and I have a FULL weekend.

Tonight, Andrew and I are watching Monsters Inc, and going to bed early after a late night last night.

But I want to share this salad dressing recipe I have been using with the candied pecans.

Just for giggles

After surviving four in row, crying on the way home from Sam’s (lame), biking for 25 min, yoga for 60, I need something to put me in a good mood. Life has definitely been a little difficult the past month, so without further ado…


Although, I did pretty good today…haha
