    Glad you’re ok. I was worried when I didn’t see you post yesterday.
    Love couscous.

  2. Mary Sikorski on July 16, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    I clean my toaster by openning the door under toaster. Love all your videos

  3. Katelyn Johnston on July 16, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    I have the same toaster, there should be 2 small drawers on the bottom in the back that collect crumbs 😊

  4. Sherry Harmon on July 16, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    What a great video! Everything looks so clean and beautiful! Love the way you mix your decor….sooooo pretty! Where’d you get your top? Love it and that color is your color. See you on the next one!,

  5. Lisa Bellissimo on July 16, 2020 at 5:57 pm

    So inspired by watching your videos 😊
    I’m a working Mom but being at home has given me the time I never seemed to have before to get my home in tip top shape!
    I’ve been cleaning like crazy, organizing and purging and decorating like a champ!!
    We built our home 13 years ago and I felt it was time for an overhaul and refresh 😎
    I actually had moving boxes in my basement from when we moved into the house in 2007 – Filled with outdated decor, etc.
    It’s all cleaned now and I am having so much fun 😷😊

  6. Melinda Reuter on July 16, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    Love the wood mixed in with the black and white!😍

  7. Carolyn Spotts on July 16, 2020 at 5:59 pm

    I shake out my toaster and then clean the bottom by sliding the guard under it and clean it.

  8. Jenny Sullivan on July 16, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    I ❤️ couscous, I had tried it before subscribing to Hello Fresh and honestly if I’m having a hard time deciding between different recipes to get in my box each week usually couscous as a side dish will be the deciding factor for me 😋

  9. Lisa Baldwin on July 16, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    We have that same Hello Fresh meal- good one!!! Love all your decor!!

  10. Dot Goodwin on July 16, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    Super cute!

  11. Rose Shoop on July 16, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    My trash can is fine but my toaster… 🤭😬 Thanks for the reminder! 😄

  12. Sondra Six on July 16, 2020 at 6:07 pm

    I love the wood tones. Beautiful job

  13. linda machuca on July 16, 2020 at 6:09 pm

    Everything looks so beautiful. Love your videos. Stay well, stay safe.😊

  14. Bev Zurkammer on July 16, 2020 at 6:10 pm

    The little tray on the bottom of toaster opens up so that you can dump all the crumbs out and clean it. So many don’t realize that!

  15. Carla Ambrose on July 16, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    Love the kitchen. I clean my toaster the same way.

  16. Life's Little Thingz on July 16, 2020 at 6:12 pm

    My husband got a new job and moved back into town last week, needless to say, my home needs some major organizing and cleaning. Thank you for the motivation ❤️

  17. laurah6381 on July 16, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    There’s so much satisfaction in watching someone clean their sink! I love it! 😊 Your kitchen is so pretty and clean and fresh!

  18. Barbara Knake on July 16, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    I have the exact same toaster…there are 2 little trays in the back that you can pull out on the bottom that you can pull out and get more crumbs.

  19. Devi Strom on July 16, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    There are little trays to empty in the back of the toaster. I have that same one. 😁

  20. Kim Doughman on July 16, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    I love the addition of wooden tones!! Im wanting g the chicken wire shelf the last time I saw it it wasn’t on sale and now I’m sure it’s probably went on sale snd is gone 🙁 love it! I clean my toaster the same way lol nice to cya❤️

  21. Linda Dobberstein on July 16, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    There is a tray on the bottom of the toaster that comes off if you want to wash what sticks on! On the wreath on the HOME sign in the living room, what do you think about lightly spraying with white on the greens so you can see the O. Just a thought!

  22. Grace Smith on July 16, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    I love all of your decor! 😍 Also, where did you get your shirt?

  23. Kim Ayres on July 16, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    I watched a collaboration on tier tray decorating…they need to watch you, just sayin’!

  24. Melissa J on July 16, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    Another great video! Look forward to all of them!

  25. Betty Loar on July 16, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    Your awesome

  26. The Diaz Family of 8 on July 16, 2020 at 6:28 pm

    Love ❤️ everything!! I found my chicken wire shelf at hobby lobby 2 weeks ago for 60$ I was so so stinking happy 😆!!

  27. lucym89 on July 16, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Love how you decorated the wall basket shelf! The cookbook looks great there!

  28. mamanaenae6 on July 16, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Hi there, I have that toaster too. Mine has two little drawers in the back that pull out but your way works too ! Lol we have so many things the same, safe to say I love your style ! Thanks for sharing 😊

  29. Kathy Johnson on July 16, 2020 at 6:29 pm


  30. Andreia on July 16, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    I just wanted to thank you for sharing that painting tool for painting edges in you daughter’s room makeover (I think) . I purchased it and recently used it to paint our laundry room and it cut the time in half!!!

  31. Jennifer Renee Crust on July 16, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    Love your video’s!!!

  32. Crystal Tara on July 16, 2020 at 6:35 pm

    Hello, Thursday! Sorry my upload schedule is a bit off this week! I’ll see you back here on Monday with a shop with me! ❤️❤️

  33. Fran G on July 16, 2020 at 6:35 pm

    I love your kitchen renovation! What white paint did you use?

  34. GASP4 NV on July 16, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    I love using the cleaner Bartenders cleaner. I clean my pots, pans and cookie sheets. Great decor video!

  35. Lisa Marie on July 16, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    Love that printed canister ❤️ I’ll have to check those out at Target! Your kitchen looks beautiful. I love your decorating style. Farmhouse is my absolute favorite ❤️❤️

  36. Lilly on July 16, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    great video! on cleaning the toaster, there is a door on the bottom that you open to take the crumbs out, on most toasters!

  37. Elaine Bradley on July 16, 2020 at 6:39 pm

    Just love your kitchen! You do such a lovely job of decorating without cluttering things up.

  38. Robin Duke on July 16, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    There is normally a little hinged type door on the bottom of the toasters. If you have one, it’s way easier to clean the inside that way.😊💛

  39. Olivia Rand on July 16, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Crystal! I just made a hello fresh video and this was one of my recipes! I never had couscous before either and loved it. I loved this recipe so much! Also funny I clearly spend way to much time in target when I watch the first 30 seconds in your video and am like ohh 😮 I’ve wanted that from target just never bought it! We also have the same trash can and I love it!

  40. Barb B. on July 16, 2020 at 6:41 pm

    Your cutting boards are so pretty.

  41. Staci D. on July 16, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    Love your videos. Kitchen looks amazing.. Theres a little trap door on the bottom of the toaster. It opens to empty they crumbs.. Crumb tray lol… Your method works too.. XO

  42. Velma Coffey on July 16, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    Love your changes. I am about 4 months behind everyone who cleaned out their cabinets, scrubbed them down inside & out, polished and shining clean! I also organized my spices…i know…OCD…with new bottles and labels. On to my walk in pantry/bulk storage area..tomorrow!!!!

  43. Lia Tori on July 16, 2020 at 6:45 pm

    Love your decor, especially where you placed the Magnolia cook book. Question: Do you and how do you keep track of the recipes you’ve tried and liked?

  44. valerie fonzer on July 16, 2020 at 6:45 pm

    Open the bottom tray and that way you don’t have to shake it in the sink that way

  45. Diane Cervantes on July 16, 2020 at 6:45 pm


  46. Mary Robbio on July 16, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    My toaster has trays in the bottom, but to get it totally clean I do the same thing, turn it upside down and bang on it. Love your top so flattering on you. Love you little tier tray and as always your wire shelve came out beautifully

  47. Beth Darnell on July 16, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    I like how you have the cutting boards. I need to add some cutting boards to my counter. I think that’s just what it needs.

  48. Mommyonthegoplustwo on July 16, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    Thanks for the cleaning motivation! 👍

  49. Levia D on July 16, 2020 at 6:50 pm

    A big yes to Barkeepers Friend! It’s especially great on porcelain sinks to get the pot marks off. We play the same game with our trash can. Can a little more fit?☺

  50. Barb Krieser on July 16, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    Always happy to see your videos 😊…. cook and clean and decorate… The Big Three….. TFS 🥰
