I was in need of a new desk for my work space and found this beauty at a yard sale for $10!
It sat in the corner for over a month and I really didn't know which color I wanted to paint it. Then I saw a beautiful green desk makeover on pinterest:
and decided that was it! our kitchen/dining room/office is white, green, & black so it was decided... green...
Green desk! It looks ALOT brighter here than it does in real life, the color is Antique Green.. I think it's just the sunlight from the sliding glass doors making it looks so neon.. but it looks REALLY good.. and I am happy with it :)
[ this is the color swatch it is.. huge difference from the picture right LOL ]
Here is another project I did.. I bought that cute little clay pot at a yard sale (should have got a better picture of it close up ). I got an Aloe Vera plant to go in it and then made a hanging basket out of strings using this tutorial here [ my picture is off my phone and is horrible at that.. so here is the picture from the tutorial of how it looks ]
A little update on life
Lys LOVES her little sister. She sat like this with her watching Enchanted [ her new favorite movie, we LITERALLY watched it 5 times in one day.. no joke!]
We went to the Willow Park Zoo on Sunday for Uncle Brittons b-day.
So I am INLOVE with watching Extreme Makeover: WeightLoss Edition every Sunday. It is a GREAT motivator and shows.. if these overly obese people can lose the weight and stay strong.. so can I! It's so inspirational!
Anyways, I am also in love with Chris Powel!
Ya how could you not be in love with this guy ;)
Anyways, he is so awesome and I love how much he cares about the people he helps.
I am still SUPER motivated to lose weight.
How's it going so far you ask?
I have lost 7 lbs so far and 3 inches all around [ inch off my waist, hips, and thighs ]
I go to crossfit 4 days a week, play soccer 3 days a week, and we have been going jogging/walking as a family each night.
Eating healthy is AWESOME! I really enjoy what we eat and I love how we feel. When I eat crap [ I need to do better on the weekends, i'll admit on Saturday I decided to get a croissant which from BK because me and my sis-in-law were out at yardsales and it was convenient and I told myself " i'm going to soccer anyways so I'll work it off".. well WOW.. I felt HORRIBLE.. eating those kind of nasty carbs made me feel sick.. I couldn't even finish the sandwhich and I only drank half of the medium coke too.. I was glad too that I felt like crap.. made me realize just how good eating healthy was and felt :)
Here's a new recipe we did from Chris Powells website.. it's very healthy and man was it delicious!
[ When I reach my first 10lb loss goal i'll finally post before and after pictures.. I wont be as self conscious i'm hoping ]
