Saturday Spotlight: Meredith from The Laundry Can Wait

Hi, everyone!   Kris from Junk Chic Cottage and I wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before.   So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.

Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs.  You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Kris's and my blog. 


Today I'm happy to introduce you to another sweet blogger, Meredith of The Laundry Can Wait.  I love Meredith's values and hard work ethic!  And I always enjoy pics of her 2 little ones-they are adorable!
Please sit back, relax, and enjoy getting to know Meredith better.

I'm Meredith from The Laundry Can Wait, a lifestyle/design blog where I share my love of interior decorating, as well as my passion for my family, friends and for my home business. I live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and I absolutely love it here.

My style is ornate, French/European...elegant with rich colors. I'd have a house full of French chairs, big tassels and elaborate, golden frames if I could. But, most of what I buy is thrifted or purchased at antique stores or garage sales. :) Below are some of my favorite home photos.

Living Room:

I'm a wife of 9 years to Joey. Together, we've been blessed with two children - Grayson, 5, and Sutton, 3. Being a mother is the greatest gift the Lord has given me.

I'm a homeschooling mom, and I love it!! If you're thinking of homeschooling, you should go for it!!

I also run my own home business as a Distributor with It Works, author of the Skinny Wrap!!

My goal is to work hard enough so I can retire my husband and buy 2 horses. 
{Me, this October with my favorite neighborhood horses, CoCoa and Arrow.}

Another DREAM of mine is to buy a home where I have enough land to take in stray dogs. I want to save them all, because there are so many that need love. 
{Me, this summer with my old dogs, Penny Lane and Lucy.}

I'm a very down-to-earth girl who has sky-high dreams! 
I wrote a children's book in college, and my ultimate goal is to be published in Highlight's magazine. It's hard, y'all!! But writing is a passion of mine, and I won't stop until it happens!

My faith is very important to me, and I also love to laugh.

 {Oh, Medea, how I love thee.}

And this is my college ID.
For real. 
Good times. :)
