My friend used to work at A & W when she was 16. The manager always said this to her:

” ya got time to lean, you got time to clean.” haha. I don’t know why I’ve always found that funny.

We are moving in about 9 days, sooo this is a statement I should probably listen to. This place needs a big overhaul- which I could clean OR I could just get a maid service! It is something we are considering when we move so we don’t have to deal with the whole major clean down before we go.


What would you do if you were moving? Clean it yourself or hire a maid? One of my very first jobs I was a housekeeper (in Banff- I even worked my way up to supervisor;) so I know how to do a good job. I ALWAYS re-clean whichever home I am moving into. Not that I don’t trust the previous residents, it’s just nice to know you were the one who cleaned it your way…

Ironically this week I voiced a commercial for a maid service

Hmm, well I did just go through my fridge and throw away a BUNCH of crap. That felt good. When is the last time you went through your fridge? I will see how things unfold over the next week or so and see if I’m the maid or not.

When I was little I wanted to be Cinderella sooo bad!

I would even do ALL THIS CLEANING…


Oh if life were a fairytale…

I have 2 wonderful resources for you if you are considering a purge/spring clean.

1. A blog I enjoy called Katheats.com just put up a HUGE list of tips and tricks for cleaning your home.

2. Here is a wonderful podcast on spring cleaning/simplifying your life

Let me know how those work for ya and if you find a prince at the end of it all!

In other news, I’m going to a photo exhibit this evening for an amazing photographer named  Candice Albach. I am in the show!! ahh.. I’m nervous to see my pictures. She took some pictures of me a couple weeks ago and they will be part of the exhibit along with a bunch of others!

AND our yoga video for Stormtech is almost done! Here is a still from the shoot!

I really like this yoga video because our other ones are so adventurous and this one is cute, fun, and girly. It has a great vibe. Can’t wait to show you! In the meantime… have you seen our last video?

Woo Hoo…. Hey and if your leanin’… you could be cleanin’!

Have a great day!

    I love your blog!!! Now I have the urge to watch Cinderella. Haha. When I moved out of my last house, I cleaned and then hired someone to clean some more. I was renting it out to someone though and didn’t want them to think I was a slob, so I was extra thorough. ;)
