Tuesday Things

1. It’s a lot hard to start decorating rooms from scratch than I thought.


So far, I have our half bathroom half-done our full bathroom not done at all, the bedroom half-done and the living room far from done. This was one of the things I was most excited about, but it’s just so hard! (let alone a $300 trip each time I go out to purchase furniture and decorations – oof!) I’ve been pinning like it’s my job (follow me!) but if it really were, I think I’d be fired Smile with tongue out

2. French. Pressed. Coffee.


We haven’t gotten our Keurig hooked up yet, and I’m not sure I ever do. I’ve been playing with local roasted beans, grinding them right before brewing them in the french press.


This is a local blend – Pearl Street blend – and it. is. heaven. Especially with a tbsp. of heavy cream. Indulge in the morning.

3. Since moving, I’ve been Skyping and Face Timing my face off. This week I’ve had a handful of virtual dates with friends and family back home.


The lovely Kim, who needs to start blogging again Winking smile

4. I’m venturing out to another city today! I have to go to Broomfield to get some supplies for a blog assignment, and while there, I may or may not do a little shopping for the home.

5. Little fact about me: I love Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. Back in Normal, they were both on at random times when I never got a chance to watch them. Here, they’re on at the perfect time – right before dinner – which means I can watch them every day! It’s sad when you’re wondering why the heck Jeopardy isn’t on, and then you realize it’s Saturday. Hm. Maybe I shouldn’t admit that.


Anyway, I’m sure that will change once I start working more at the gym training more clients. Speaking of…

6. I train my first client tomorrow! I’m so excited. Aside from training clients virtually, it’s been two weeks since I’ve last trained a client!

7. I have had coconut oil in my hair since last night after my shower. I’m gonna go wash it out after posting, in hopes that my hair will feel luscious, shiny, and new! I’ll report back on that…

8. We moved to a smaller place here in Colorado, and even though I pitched (“pitch it!” became my catch phrase during those last few days of packing…) a TON, I still don’t have enough room. Thank you Target and your organizing solutions Open-mouthed smile


9. Despite having coconut oil in my hair all night, when I went to bed last night I could smell nothing but butter. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some butter, but I prefer not to smell like it. Guess I should have showered after pan frying my steak in clarified butter, and then putting a good spoonful into our acorn squash.


Ehhh, it was totally worth it Winking smile

10. Those who are interested in trying out online personal  training still have time to score on this month’s awesome deal. If you sign up for one month, you’ll get the second month free, or any of the options listed here.

Time to go scrub this coconut oil out of my hair! Have a good one, loves Open-mouthed smile

Where do you go to buy bathroom decorations/furnishings?

What’s the nerdiest show you watch?

  1. I know what you mean about the decorating and furnishing thing… The one thing I learned after moving into our house is that it takes a lot of time. Initially I wanted everything to look perfect from the get-go, but I then realized that you collect things and buy decor over time. It also helped my wallet a lot when I realized this, AND we have things that we truly love rather than just buying them to fill an empty space. Good luck! 😉 And I definitely need to try the coconut oil in my hair thing! I’ve been meaning to for awhile now.

  2. We got a French Press about a year and a half ago, and that’s all we have used since! I’d like to get a Keurig just for the ease of it, but really… it takes like one minute to grind beans (and French press coffee tastes better!).
    I NEED to pitch stuff. We have just so much “stuff.” Greg has a much harder time getting rid of things than I do, so I need to take charge.
    Have fun in Broomfield- I love it! :)

  3. ohh! good luck training tomorrow! You’re going to be so good and your clients will LOVE you! I haven’t tried coconut oil in my hair yet but I do use a Moroccan oil serum and love it so I’m sure coconut oil will be fantastic also – can’t wait to hear how it goes!

  4. Definitely understand the jeopardy love..jeopardy and the food network = the only reasons why I miss having cable!

  5. I am terrified for the day that I will have to move again. When I was moving every year, I was the queen of decluttering (Pitch it!). The second year in the same (big) apartment has proven to be one of slight hoarding for me… ugh!

  6. i can’t walk out of target without buying something for the house, guilty. You did a better job than i did. And now, i want to put coconut oil in my hair. Let me know how it works!

  7. I’m SO bad at decorating. I usually buy from Target, Amazon and Bed Bath and Beyond. Never anything fancy or unique.
    Can’t wait to hear how the coconut oil thing went!

  8. Will Ferrel gif cracked me up, he’s just amazing. I’ve put coconut oil in my hair and you definitely have to wash it like 5 times before it’s not greasy haha, or just use a lot of shampoo! And make sure it’s ALL out before applying heat because you can definitely burn your hair off if you don’t! Oh man, I wish I liked decorating but it’s probably my biggest pet peeve, I feel like everything has to look perfect so it’s so hard for me. I’m a jeopardy fan too! I remember coming home from school to watch it. Good luck tomorrow, not that you need it! I bet it will be amazing!

  9. I love the IDEA of decorating and when it comes down to it, I don’t usually have enough patience. 😉

  10. I love me some French pressed coffee!! Nothing is better! I’m a terrible decorator, but I have found some really cute things at World Market and Hobby Lobby!

  11. LOVE French pressed coffee! I wish I had the time to make it more often.

  12. I just moved into a new house in May and I’m still decorating and buying furniture, rugs and art. It feels like a never ending project…and an expensive project too!

    I would check Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs and Anthropology for pretty bathroom things (shower curtains, fixtures, rugs, etc). :)

  13. I’ve done the coconut oil in my hair before and it works! Your hair will feel softer for a few days. I actually need to do it again, it’s been a while. Thanks for the reminder! And take your time with decorating. The worst thing would be that you spend all kinds of money on random stuff and it still doesn’t have the “look” that you wanted. Good luck!


  14. Decorating a house from scratch is something I’ve always wanted to do too…but I can definitely see that it would be overwhelming too! Can’t wait to see the finished product. And I went through a huge Jeopardy phase too..where I actually recorded every episode ha! I should get back on that bandwagon.
