We started off our new year with a hike at one of our favorite hiking spots, Daley Ranch. We took Jack for his first hike ever. I've always been nervous that his little legs wouldn't be able to carry him, but he was leading the charge! It was so nice to start off being outside and active.
One of my resolutions last year was to get our house to a point I'd be happy with. That did not happen, obviously. It gets hard at times knowing we'll only be here for two more years. I am always conflicted on whether to spend money on projects for our house now, or save for a house when Matt gets out of the Marine Corps. I guess I just need to find a better balance. I'm sure most renters know how I feel, right? I can't be alone!
We still have a to-do list a mile long as far as house projects go though. My family is coming to visit in May and I want the house to look awesome. What you'll see in the upcoming weeks (probably more likely, months):
A vase to lamp transformation
A workbench built by Matt
Another Ikea hack (I'm SOO ridiculously excited about this one!!)
A new table runner
Craft supplies organization
A fancied up powder room
A new doormat
DIY window treatments
A DIY headboard
A fancied up laundry room
I also need:
More book storage
A desk chair
I have unlimited ideas but limited funds. Isn't that always the case? For me it is. Anyone want to donate?
How did you start off your new year? What do you have on your to do list?
