You Spin Me Right Round Baby Right Round

Hey guys this past Thursday was my first official Charleston Blog Society outing!!!!!๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„
 It was at the Charleston Revolution indoor cycling class. . . . Which was awesome and just in time for bikini season.๐Ÿ‘™๐ŸŒŠ especially since I've been feeling like a busted can of biscuits lately๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ™Š
Just a list of standard rules to follow whenever you do take a class.

When you first get to Charleston Revolution they get you to pick out where you want to sit, and they have a snazzy seating chart up front. Since I haven't cycled in quite a bit I wasn't confident enough to  sit  front and center . So I decided to take the third row.

I had no idea that specific footwear ๐Ÿ‘Ÿwas required for these classes that click right into the pedals. The good thing is they have shoes there and give your size. They almost look like bottle openers on the bottom :-) 

The inside was so stinkin pretty it was almost like a really cool Planetarium.๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŒ‘ Our instructor was SJ, who is just a fun ball of energy. I have always been very hesitant to do group exercise. In my head always think if you aren't able to keep up with everyone else the instructor may go drill sergeant on you but SJ was not like that whatsoever. It was like having a fun motivating friend in your corner with a snazzy playlist mind you. ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ


When the class was over I was completely shocked how fast it flew by it did not feel like 45 minutes whatsoever. The next day I realized how out of shape I must be because there were  muscles sore that I didn't even know I had. I wonder if Romy and Michelle had this problem.  . . .


I would definitely like to go again..... Especially so I can look like one of these people on their hallway mural ๐Ÿ˜‰

The cherry ๐Ÿ’ on the sundae was winning the Charleston Aviate hat and Charleston Revolution water bottle :) 


If anyone is interested here are the rates for the classes.

Down on Copperline

๐Ÿซ๐ŸซHappy hump day yall!๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ
I don't know about y'all but one of my favorite musicians is James Taylor. There's just something always so comforting in his voice and growing up I remember my mom would always play his music. So something about it always makes me feel nostalgic.
 Especially his song Copperline.
So out of inspiration from the original JT . . . . .
I decided to add a little bit more copper to my kitchen :-)

I have spray painted my kitchen aid before, first it was white, then it was a pistachio green, and then last year I spray painted it a light pink.
Now that live with a man I wanted to change it up a little bit so we have a little bit more of a butch mixing contraption. 
The cutest thing would be to see my 6'2 boyfriend using a dainty pink KitchenAid. So today we are going to spray paint!!

First things first . . .
 I'm the realest
And never underestimate the power of spray paint.
I was thinking of doing gold but I decided to Jazz it up with copper to give it that must Moscow Mule finish.

1. You're going to want to clean it first, if you don't you will basically spray paint on the breadcrumbs and crusty crusts and no one likes that.
2. You're going to want to start taking and unscrewing things off of the KitchenAid . .  . You can still see some of the Green from the last time I spray painted it :-)


3. Once you unscrew the back plate off you're going to expose the motor in the wires.
Red wire blue wire red wire blue wire which one?!?!

4. It's much easier if you grab a plastic sandwich bag and go ahead and rip the cord up and then wrap it and stop the motor and take the edging. Last time it took me forever to take off the cord and this way is much easier.

5. Make sure to tape off any area that has a hole you really do not want this spray paint getting in the motor. I just found out (keep in mind this is my third time spray painting The Kitchen Aid) that you can pull back the silver logo label. Make sure everything is unscrewed I use my snazzy Pink Verbena screwdriver ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ’ž

6. Also make sure to set the screws and knobs aside somewhere safe because they will roll off and your dog will try and eat them.๐Ÿถ

7. Let's step outside shall we
Make sure to lay down old sheets or cardboard. I've been using old cardboard 4 projects for ever and that's usually the best option. Also stand upwind when spraying spray paint :-) and try not to spray paint when it's windy outside. I still have copper flakes on parts of my skin.

8. After letting it dry for maybe 10-15 minutes you're all set :-)
Finished Product
