Mint, Moves, and Sunshine. {A Random Post}

Remember when I posted about Amber's Chevron Laundry Room?

It made me jealous because mine was BEIGE, oh the horror, I know!


It's just so small and it's not like I hang out in there so I really had no plans to do anything about it.
THEN I got an itch, for MINT. 
I randomly went and picked out a color and it sat in my trunks for like weeks.  Cleaning out this room was the hard part, somehow my husband volunteered to do it while I was Canton shopping. Talk about lucky!


I'm really hoping my washer and dryer go out so I can justify buying new ones :)  

The color I picked was Valspar Icy Mint.


I bought 2 sets of new shelves {on clearance!!} from Ikea, adding another row really made the room look bigger. The large pink storage boxes are from there too and let me tell you, they are the best storage boxes I've ever bought! Much better than the ones from Target or Home Depot!


Now, the back wall is too blank. It needs SOMETHING, just haven't decided what yet. I'm kinda kicking myself for not buying the huge pink metal heart I saw in Canton! 
Any ideas?? No chevron, I already have a huge wall of it in my living room :)

I also need more hooks for my bag obsession. 

Moving on, my office space is pretty boring too, so my Mom made me the CUTEST sign.


The board had something else on it and was clearanced at Pier One, the design was a tutorial she found online.
You can view it here. She's such a rockstar, I'm totally blessed! 

Random, so I had people posting new gym moves for me to try on Instagram {@skinnymeg31}.
Just so y'all know, I am NOT a bad ass.

This is what the move SHOULD look like.


I was all 'I can totally do that!'


Or not.




Anyways, my point is don't be scared to try new things. I'm going to keep at this move until I can do it halfway decent!

If you know of a fun move I should try leave me a link! 

Happy Day Before Happy Hour Friday!

  1. I love the mint! I am wanting to paint my laundry room (and the rest of my house!!) too! Just gotta convince the hubs...he LIKES white. ugh! Do you use pinterest? There are tons of cute laundry signs/vinyl letter sayings. Also Hobby Lobby usually has some pretty cute ones too. I need to have you come give my house a makeover! And put me through a bootcamp to get my fat crying!!! Love you girl- you are such an inspiration!

  12. HAHA I saw the pic of your fail on Instagram but the video is even better! BTW, I tried it myself and at the exact moment the bf walked in and saw me as I fell and hit my head on the floor. Yup, not cute or easy. Glad I'm not the only one!

  13. I LOVE that color!!! I may steal that idea... my laundry room is HUGE, but its because its supposed to double as my pantry, I have too much shelving, which has lead to storage junk build up and needs to be purged, I may need to paint it too, just to make me clean it out!

  16. Love your attempt at the new move! The professionals always make it look so easy. I love your blog and you are such an inspiration to me. It's weird how i'm so addict to you and MamaL - you both motivate me to get up at 5am to hit my workout facility (spare bedroom) and workout - thank you and I hope to shed the last 20lbs of my goal. YOU ROCK!!! Keep the motivation coming!!!!!!

  17. I think you should stencil Fleur De Lis on the walls above and below the 2nd shelf. I think it would look cute! And totally feed my obsession with Fleur De Lis!!! Good luck!!!

  22. That looks super hard!! Try starting with the ball under your shins/knees more. Then as you lift your bum into the air like the first picture, the ball will have rolled out to your toes.
    I am so inspired by your fearless-ness!

  23. Okay A) I heart mint. B) I am glad I am not the only one who secretly wishes her W&D would die, I want pretty ones! Haha. Love your new blog design too, looks fab! I am going to have to enlist Hubby Jack one day soon.

  26. New Reader! Seeing your love of chevron, I had to point out this precious kids tie on Etsy. Like seriously, if you ever have a little boy, he MUST wear this. Or maybe the little lady could even pull it off??
