"laundry room makeover - part 1"

Slowly but surely the house is coming along. Today I put this stupid...and complicated...and very user UNfriendly...wire shelf together. BY MYSELF!!! But I finally got it together! *Go Me!* Then I decided to go do a little shopping. I am very excited about my laundry room purchases...I think they go together very nicely!

Love these baskets!! I take after my mother and have a basket issue! I bought these because they were cute AND they were on sale...but I'm not sure exactly what is going to go in them! :)

This will eventually go on the wall when I can get David to put it up. I would try but I'm not a "use a level and make it straight" person. I would just throw it on the wall and it would probably be crooked.

Notice this is "laundry room makeover - part 1" - "part 2" will be posted soon. The tile in laundry room isn't quite finished! :) But I did buy a cute rug that is red, orange and brown! Pics of the rest of the laundry room - or should I say laundry room floor...coming soon!!!

"Got Milk?"

Today I had all intentions of eating good all day...I even took a healthy frozen meal and was going to make pork chops and veggies for dinner. Well....I didn't start out so well! :-( A girl at work brought cookies...chocolate chip cookies...for everyone and well, it would just be rude to decline!! Don't they look yummy???

They were absolutely DELISH!! So what if after eating them I decided to have a cheat day!! (I have so many of those!)

"New Workout"

First of all I must share my new workout shoes! They were an "I'm so proud of you" gift to myself for finishing boot camp!

I've never bought shoes strictly for working out so that in and of itself is a huge accomplishment! *Go me!*

Anyways, enough about shoes! Given that my last day of boot camp was last Friday, the girls at work and I decided we need to stick with a workout routine so all the hard work we've done doesn't go to waste. So yesterday, we decided to try Total Body Workout. Well, comparing it to boot camp, it really didn't give us the level of workout we needed. So today we decided to try a spin class and absolutely loved it! It was our first time jumping on the spin class bandwagon and it was a lot harder than I imagined. I mean, I knew it would be a good workout - but little did I know we would be *standing* while spinning!! I have to be honest and admit I could only stand for a minute at time. :-| But hopefully with time, I will improve. And I can already feel it in my must be working!

I really want David to start working out with me but it's really hard given his work schedule (which hopefully will change soon). So we decided that at night when he gets off work we will do a "mini boot camp" workout and run. So lastnight, we gave it a shot. And my original theory was "I've been working out for several months and David hasn't worked out in a I should be able to *kick his butt*!" Much to my surprise, that didn't quite happen!! He wasn't even breathing hard!! NOT FAIR!!

"Scrapbook Crop....Finally"

I haven't scrapbooked in soo long...I've been having withdrawals!! So yesterday my sister came up and we went to a crop. I found this fun group of girls online that get together once a month at a church and scrapbook...ALL DAY!! I was in *much* need of some serious scrappin' time! We had so much was Cinco de Mayo theme for the food so we had some delicious treats!! David and I have been together for almost a year and sadly I've only done one...yes of the two of us! I am happy to say that we now have a mini album. I was so proud of it! And David really appreciated it as well. He said "You're so creative!" I loved it when he noticed all of the little details!
