You guys. Dandelions have TAKEN OVER OUR YARD. We mowed on Sunday and they are already a foot above the grass. One day, I was feeling pumped up and began pulling a crap ton. Those roots are insanity. And they almost gross me out. It’s like pulling a dozen thick worms. And then there are spiders and other creatures everywhere. And the roots just break most of the time as you pull them. So it’s not even satisfying. And that means they are going to grow back. It’s so frustrating. And all these people on my instagram told me I need to leave the dandelions because the bees need them. Which I 100% get. But we have neighbors who have the most beautiful lawn on earth and I’m pretty sure they were hoping for neighbors who would actually care for their lawn, unlike they’ve had in the past. I don’t mind having a couple dandelions, but that just isn’t possible. When there is one, there is about to be one thousand. That’s just a simple fact. What the hell to do?
Moving on. After living with carpet for the past year and now having only wood floors…omg. It grosses me out. I might as well keep sweeping and mopping every single moment of every single day. I can’t imagine what our carpet looked like deep inside. And how do people with dogs that shed A LOT keep up with that sh*t? Jackson sheds a good amount, but they are small hairs so you can’t see them as easily. And the hair still drives me absolutely nuts. But for real, the floors are always dirty. Have any of you bought a Rumba? I think that needs to go high on our priority list. Probably after furniture since we don’t have that yet.
I just found the best self tanner ever. EVER! My calluses may be brown, but whatever, at least my skin is a little darker without tanning beds!
My eye will not stop twitching. Two days now, two freaking days.
Wait, back to the house stuff. Stop getting distracted. I’m so excited because since we’ve ordered furniture, placed an order with a friend to make our dining table, got a new mattress and started working on the bedroom, I’ll soon have some house furnishing posts for you! Spicing it up a little bit. There will still be lots of food, fashion fridays and workouts, but now there will be a little home decor ideas as well! I recently started posting pictures of my vanity area in my bedroom, but that still needs a couple touches. So I think I’m going to talk about my mattress I got recently. Because it’s amazing. Have you ever heard of intellibed? It’s a non toxic, gel material bed that has amazing back support and helps regulate blood flow. When I started doing research about beds when we moved into our new house, the stats about this bed and all the amazing feedback won we over. I seriously had no idea how toxic a mattress can be. Frightening.
But get this, I’ll even have a discount for you guys. Yessir. I’m working with this company to save you money and get you sleeping a healthy, deep sleep. Sofreakingpumped. But until then, drink this. Because it’s delicious. And inspired by Ginger Newtrition adrenal cocktail which uses cold pressed orange juice, collagen, and salt to make the most delicious drink. This time I just spiced it up a little bit! Thanks for the inspiration, you amazing health coach you!
