It's all too easy to see that warm weather is on my mind. However, I am aware that today is Groundhog Day and that snarky little fellow apparently saw his shadow. I know I shouldn't be wishing time away, but this winter has felt really long already. I'm sure many of us are feeling this way since there have been record breaking low temps and snowfall all over the US (Hello, polar vortex up here and snow in Atlanta, what?!).
But even if it's not Spring outside just yet, inside my apartment is looking so fresh and so clean. In addition to scrubbing everything I could get my hands on, I also may have gone a little Target crazy. I got some much needed organizational items and also freshened up my living and bathroom spaces a bit. I'll leave you with some pics showing the fruits of my labor over the past 48 hours. I feel like this cleaning has helped me to 'declutter' my mind too and get ready for the new week ahead, the new month, and hopefully a new season that is not too far around the corner, despite what Punxsutawny Phil says.
I put this here shelf together with my BARE hands people (ok, and a screwdriver). I hope you're impressed. It's from Target and so is the little knit basket on top, which is currently holding all my protein bars.
Re-covered my IKEA chair in stark white. It had been covered with a navy blue slipcover and was just looking too dark and dreary for my mood this weekend. I love how this brightens up my living room. Found that cute little Valentine's pillow at Target too btw.
Probably my favorite find of the weekend! I love this new shower curtain I found at Target (here). It was on sale, plus I used the new Cartwheel app on my phone for an additional coupon so I got it for a little over $13! I felt like an extreme couponer, save for the fact that I was not purchasing 75 tubes of toothpaste and 200 cans of beans that no human will ever eat in his lifetime.
This morning I also took my first Xtend Barre class. I almost forgot I purchased a Living Social voucher ages ago for an unlimited month at this studio. Thank goodness I finally had time to get my little booty there this weekend. I'm going to do a full write up in the next day or two, but here's a spoiler: I really liked it!
Ok, I'm off. I may or may not turn on the Super Bowl for a bit. I'm heading into this week with a fresh, clean frame of mind and I'm feeling good :)
How did you spend your weekend?
Will you be watching the Super Bowl?
Have you ever taken a Barre workout class?
