Decorating Inspiration: Blue Crush

11 Jun

There’s something about shades of blue that are so classic, so summery. I am slowly transforming my home into a brown and blue theme. It started with my bedroom and has progressed downstairs into my living room.

Blue: The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is one of the most popular colors. It causes the opposite reaction as red. Peaceful, tranquil blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms. Blue can also be cold and depressing. Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms.

I love robin’s egg blue. What a happy color, so full of promise.

Extreme Makeover: Me — My Inspiration pics

13 May

It’s time for Extreme Makeover: Me Edition. This week we are talking about inspiration photos that get us motivated. Mine is Cindy Crawford. She has had a couple of kids, she is older than me and looks great.

Another picture that keeps me motivated is this one. This was taken a few years ago on a trip to Hawaii, before I discovered tankinis and had my last child. I remember doing the Body For Life plan before we left. It really worked and I felt great.


I have been keeping really busy this week. I haven’t been snacking as much. So my goals for the coming week are:

  • Keep drinking lots of water
  • Lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Go for walks/runs
  • Dust off that Body For Life Book – I know it’s around here somewhere!
  • Portion control

Good luck to everyone. Go on over to Amber’s to join the group. It’s a great support system of wonderful ladies!

Have a Great Day!
