Pretties of the Week and a Possible Blog Design...

Colors of clothes, colors of food, down to colors meant to relax and those that inspire are the pretties to my week. Happy Friday loves! Someone told me today that we are now in the final weeks of summer. Really?! Why announce that. Have your Christmas countdowns, birthday chains, wedding clocks but please don't countdown the weekends left to summer! how rude. On that note, here's a look at what I'm loving about our new space and what I'm feelin' for a new blog design...

There's still work to do on the house and "blog design" but I'm totally smitten with each and really happy with all things new.

closet organization, organize clothes by color
seriously, this has to be the best way to organize your clothes. I'm a little fanatic about my closet space. Whether it's the smallest of spaces or the largest it's important to keep the space cheerful and organized. Sorting clothes by color makes the space more exciting and actually helps you think of new color combinations! I'm still figuring out the best way to organize our outrageous number of shoes.... any ideas?

kitchen herbs and squash, cilantro in water, food pictures

it's fun being back in the kitchen. I've enjoyed making meals for the family and am anxious to get a new tank for the grill and start grilling again! But don't worry, I know cilantro and squash weren't made for each other. Cilantro is meant for guacamole and Lord, did I eat a mountain of that stuff this week ;)

beach decor, starfish and driftwood as decorations
the only pink in this room, maybe even the entire house. Those starfish and most of the driftwood are well traveled from Hawaii to Virginia and now Colorado. ah, home sweet home. Do you have simple little pieces like this? Little pieces in your home that holds stories and have seen it all?

small space desk organization, desk in small space, floating shelves in office
small space, corner nook, limited too, part of another room... whatever this space is called it's my desk//home office area. And I'm loving it. I don't require much really, I don't need an entire room or mile long desk. Give me a few shelves, a few drawers, space for the laptop, some pretties and I'm good. I hung the floating shelves in an order that makes sense but also allows me to add more if/when we decide to. I love my boys artwork on display, I love having the shells around me and the calming blues.

And those boxes on the shelves?

organize with toilet paper rolls, organize desk, organize art supplies
Friends, it was love at first sight. I love their simplicity, their message of love and belief but most of all....I love the organized fun they hold. The simple trick of using toilet paper rolls inside decor boxes solves the problem of art supply chaos. toilet paper rolls. start saving them.

and now, Dun. Dun. Dun....

blog design, heart shaped sweat
It's most definitely time for a new blog look. And, I've always wanted to do my own, I mean, anything is possible right?! So, even though I'm not a 100% sure about the fonts and not a single image is mapped.... this is what I got going on and again, I'm asking for your opinion! Pretty please!

Personally, I love it. I'm guilty of just staring at it for way to long. Not sure what your weekend plans are but it's safe to say I'll be figuring out image mapping....

Latest workout song crush
  Roar by Katy Perry on Grooveshark
have I really never linked with Whitney before? that's weird and unacceptable.
ah, once for When I Grow Up. I should have included linking with back that azz up Fridays.

P.S. I took my outdoor exercise indoors last night! FYI, I'm addicted to step classes. I tried out one at our new gym and smiled like an idiot 5 year old without his training wheels the entire time. I was covered in sweat and at times not sure if I was even breathing but it's one of my favorite workouts and the teacher did not disappoint! One hour later, 700+ calories fried this new city became even cooler.

Welcome back to the regular blog land! I'm loving your new blog design, how did you learn how to do everything? That's something I want to learn to do as well. How's the new life?

Lins - Domesticated Working Woman said...

Loving the color, too, my friend. I have to admit though, I'm excited about fall myself.

Heather @ From Here to There said...

I think your design looks awesome! I would love to re-design mine too, don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my blog design, but next time I get it done, I'd like for it to be my own! Did you read a book to learn? Or just look it up online?

The Pink Growl said...

I am loving all those colors!!! So pretty! I like Katy's new song too - she always nails it!

Jenn @ WLB said...

I love it!! I can't wait to see the change implemented!

Kristine@thefoleyfam said...

FUN design! So much more you with the fun colors! Go you!! I'm the same way and had to do it myself to get what I wanted. Playing is the fun part :) I also have my clothes arranged by color. Totally makes for a happy place! Happy Friday girl!

Helene in Between said...

I like the blog design! and i love organizing by color, i used to do that in my closet!

Susan Cardoza said...

I've never thought of organizing my closet by color, my OCD usually reverts to sorting by size. Your closet looks so nice like that though!

Jen said...

I love organizing my closet by color!! :)

Courtney Hinds said...

I love all the colors in your new space! The new blog design is awesome! I love it :)

Davida @TheHealthyMaven said...

Love the new blog design!! Will you please come organize my closet??? LOL

Arielle said...

love the new look:)) & I need to start saving toilet paper rolls! haha

Jen B said...

Love the new design! Thankfully our closet in the new house (which is pretty freaking fantastic) has a built in shoe rack. Its pretty big (not big enough but nothing ever is...) Anyhow I have not done it myself but I've seen people store shoes in those really cheap sterilte containers from walmart. They are .99 each I think and about the size of a shoe box. They stack great and are clear so you can see what is inside.

Liz @ Fitness Blondie said...

Why are you just so amazing?!!?!?

Your little office space looks great and HOLY SQUASH! Did you grow it?!?!

I LOVEEE your new blog design.

You rock my socks.


Megan Wade said...

I'm new here (coming over from the H54F linkup) so I didn't see the before blog but this looks great! I'm slowly trying to figure out the whole blog customization thing myself.

Also, your tiny Hawaii picture makes me homesick. After 2 years in Korea we are trying very hard to move back there!

Janna Renee said...

You are so brave to do your own design, but obviously you know what you want! I think it's looking awesome. Glad you guys are getting all settled and you are liking the Springs! said...

Your office space looks great! Very simple yet cute!!

kelsnsher said...

I also organize my clothes by color, but then I take it a step farther and separate by sleeve length, like tank tops, short sleeve, long sleeve, sweater, etc....Maybe too far but this single gal has her own closet to play with lol. Also I love what you've come up with for a new blog design it's so cute! You're awesome for figuring that out on your own!

Nicole M said...

Your new blog design looks so great!
BTW, I nominated you for a Liebester :) Check it out!

FitTravelerAJ said...

I have always organized my closet by color, its so helpful! Now I have small closets, so I have them also organized by short and long sleeves!

And YES to the new blog design! I love it!!! I've been wanting to change my design but haven't pulled the trigger.


Samantha Ciaccio said...

Love the blog design!

Sean Carter said...

Awesome pictures, and I really like the blog design. Some very cool touches. I am not the best of designers myself but when I wanted to overhaul my site I found some very helpful wordpress portfolio themes that really looked nice

Katherine - Real Food Runner said...

haha! I agree with you girl- I don't want summer to end although I am super looking forward to fall!

MorganizewithMe said...

GREAT song! Love your new design, excited to see it done! Hope your transition is going well.

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

Toilet paper rolls...Genius!

Makeshift Margaritas said...

Found you through last week's linkup! I totally organize my closet by color too. It is a LIFESAVER! ;-)

Amanda aka Manda said...

Sorry I'm just now catching up on everything. I love what you've done in the new house. I'm all about organization. I'm seriously thinking about color coding my closet after seeing yours!

Janna Renee said...

I think that new design is coming right along! I love the color scheme and it's very fresh!

jsalyerjessey said...

I like this colors and design of these closet. The closet color looks very beautiful with the home color and the most gorgeous thing in your home is organizing everything in a right way...Fantastic share
