Three Favorites-- Laundry Room Edition

Hi Lovelies!

I thought tonight I would show you three of my favorite laundry makeovers courtesy of Pinterest. I have been wanting to makeover my laundry room for quite some time now. Now, I know none of these ideas will work with my current laundry room, but I just love them so much that I thought I would share them with you.

Hey, a girl can dream, right?

Laundry room makeover #1:

This one is just so beautiful. If I had this laundry room I wouldn't mind working on laundry at all.

Laundry room makeover #2:

I love the layout of this one. Oh, and the colors are just so beautiful.

Laundry room makeover #3:

I love the little island in the middle of the room. The perfect place to fold all of those pesky clothes that just seem to multiply.

What would your dream laundry room look like?

Three Favorites

Hi Lovelies!

I wanted to share three of my favorite things tonight:

Three of my favorites:

1. Fuller House. I love this show and cannot wait for season two. The adult humor is the best and I love all of the references back to the old show and to the Olsen twins.

2. I'm going to say this again...My day designer weekly planner. I love this. This has really helped me stay organized this past week. It helps me keep school schedules straight, it helps remind when bills are due, and it helps me plan all of our meals. It would be lost with it.

3. Amazon Prime. I love that I can watch so many movies that I haven't seen in a while and some that I haven't seen at all. It is just so much fun to browse all of the movies titles and show titles. 

Until next time Lovelies!!!
