Laundry Room Update

There are so many gorgeous laundry rooms that are inspiring me. I love the one below from Duo Ventures Blog.

Laundry Room

So I decided to do a quick update on mine. It was getting really messy:

Laundry Room Before

I took everything off the shelves and cleaned it all really well. Then I put it all back, but in containers.

Before After Laundry Room

I had most of the baskets, but I picked up a few from Home Goods (Wash Container) and Target (White Baskets and detergent containers).

I hope you have a good day.






Vitamix Kale Smoothie Recipe

This is a quick, delicious and healthy Kale smoothie.

Green Smoothie

I got this recipe from my Pilates teacher, Marita.

Kale Shake


1 cup Almond Milk (I use 1/2 cup chocolate and 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla)

1 1/2 cups Kale (about 1 large handful) (you can also use spinach)

1/2 banana

1 Tablespoon peanut butter (I use a handful of cashews)

1 cup ice (you can add more or less depending on how thick you want it)

Put it all in the blender and blend for about 3 minutes, until smooth.

Kale Shake ingredience

It tastes like a banana shake with a little peanut butter and chocolate.  I LOVE IT. Kale is a SUPER veggie that is loaded with vitamins A, C and K. It’s a great way to start the day.

Have a good one.



Pie Crust Heart Cookies

Pie crust is my favorite, so when I saw these cookies made by Jennifer Rizzo I had to make them.


I used the Pillsbury crust and some semi sweet chocolate chips.

I used a knife to spread the melted chocolate between the cookies. Drizzling the chocolate on top was hard, but they sure tasted good.

I hope you have a happy Valentines Day 💕
