En Fuego

Mal and I were en fuego today! We slept in a little bit, ate breakfast (egg + cheese sandwiches), and then hit the ground running!

First stop: Marylou’s for iced coffees. I ordered a Peanut Butter Wonderful with skim milk and no sugar. Per.fect.

Back at home, Mal and I got right to work. He tackled the outdoor projects: mowing, weeding, and removing massive overgrown plants.

Inside the house, I cleaned like a mad woman– I even dusted! Of course, the pug wasn’t too far from the action. I guess you could say he helped?

Snack

I never really ate a ”˜real’ lunch today”” just lots of snacks throughout the afternoon.

Snack #1: Greek yogurt with banana slices and chia seeds.

Mid-afternoon, Mal and I took a break from working to take Murphy to the dog park. He totally surprised us by willingly going into the water to cool off.

Usually, we have to push him encourage him to get his feet wet and then he goes all the way in. It’s so funny how Murphy loves the water now”” he used to hate it.

Snack

After the dog park, I snacked on a Banana Bread Larabar and then a plum.

Then, Mal and I started our final project of the day: entryway organization.

The project included two pieces: IKEA shoe cabinet + a coat rack from Etsy.

Mal anchored the shoe cabinet to the wall, so it’s not going anywhere now.

The coat rack was up next. Mal and I obsessed about getting it perfectly level. Eventually, we got it right.

I love the final product! Our entry way has only been like this for a couple of hours now, but I already feel more organized.

Mal and I are having friends over for drinks in a little bit. Better boogie!

  1. I would put a small bench beneath the coat rack… one where the seat lifts up to reveal extra storage… and place wicker basket under the bench for MORE storage. Also… above the shoe cabinet… I would hang a favorite piece of artwork. Above the shoe cabinet and below the coat rack kind of looks like wasted space 🙁

  2. Love the clean lines of the entry way! It might seem boring but I really love crisp, clean whites. It always seems fresh and calm. Does that even make sense? :-/ Anyways, it looks great!!
