Step counts + Home Depot buckets + Do you do this too?

2AE96976-44D8-432C-93F4-50A139D8EB3DHi! Happiest of Thursdays to you! We’re so close to the weekend, I can seriously taste it! Do you want to know what the best part to me is? It means we’ll have fully survived our first FULL work week on our new home project. I can’t believe it!

This week has been filled with all kinds of craziness, including ALL of the possible Home Depot/Lowe’s trips (already), early bedtimes (as in 7:45PM), and double coffees to start the day off strong. Yep. We’ve definitely hit the ground running on this one. Did I mention we haven’t even been to the gym once this week? I say that because as it turns out…you can still get in a serious workout and plenty-o-steps doing home renovation projects. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I present you with Exhibit A:


Smoothies for fuel are always a good choice. Especially when they’re this pretty.

Double shots of coffee taste even better when they’re in a cute travel mug keeping it warm and toasty for hours. (Not that it truly lasts hours though…)

(Also, I HAVE to mention a little tidbit about the below picture. I am such a sucker for memories and get super sentimental about my race trackers. These are the exact shoes I wore for my first full marathon (in 2017!) and I have yet to cut off the tag on my shoe from race day. I just can’t do it. Anyone else do this too? Surely, I can’t be the only one that likes to hold onto them forever and ever to remember that I totally did that crazy thing called 26.2, a.k.a I’m full crazy.

๐Ÿ˜†ย #SentimentalSally


Additional fuel today that kept me going strong for hours of non-stop painting. Peanut butter Clif Bars are my 2nd favorite and they’re pretty amazing. My #1 fav is the chocolate hazelnut.


See what hours of painting does to your face? Yep. I never, ever, ever see that on HGTV. Real life goes on in our world and I’m here to tell you alllllll about it.


Breakfast game=STRONG this week.


I had to get outside for a little while today because the sun was screaming at me to soak in some beautiful sunshine. Spring…is that you?


Who knew the Home Depot buckets were so multi-functional?ย You gotta do whatcha gotta do when an actual step stool hasn’t made its way into your Home Depot basket just yet. Handy dandy bucket to save the day.ย 


This is 100% without a doubt on my Thursday night to-do list. Anyone else?

Questions for you today:

What was for lunch today? I need some lunch inspo, stat!ย 

What’s your current Netflix/Hulu binge?ย 

Anyone else a sentimental Sally like me and save your race day shoe trackers? Come on, don’t leave me hanging!! Tell me you do this too!ย 

Happy Thursday, friends! Have the best Fri-YAY eve and do a little something relaxing for yourself to prepare for the weekend ahead, deal? DEAL.

  1. Chelsea – have you changed the format of your blog? I used to be able to read your blog in feedly and I am unable to do so. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I will try to click over when I can to read and comment BUT I can’t do that when I am at work. Boo!
    Loving the house renovation details. Which leads to a question … I remember that you had taken on another job … are you still doing that along with the house flip or have you given that job up? Also, I am currently binge watching America’s Next Top Model! I also enjoy “The Profit” and “Sharktank”.


    1. Hey Lindsay!! I’m so sorry it’s being so tricky on Feedly! I DID change my host to WordPress and am waiting for it to fully transfer so that may be the issue. But, I’ll keep working on it and make sure it works through Feedly really soon!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      AND, YES I sure did end up leaving that job but am now a freelance Social Media Manager alongside my blog and flipping houses. It’s crazy but sure is super fun.

      We absolutely LOVE watching Sharktank! It’s such a good one!! I haven’t seen those others but I should probably add them to my list!

      Have a great rest of your weekend girly!! Thank you for stopping by the blog!
