Last Chance to Complete New Year's Resolutions

Alright, time to look back at what I did or did not accomplish from my 2013 to-do list:

1. buy door mat for sliding glass door in the living room
2. paint the guest bedroom and buy a bed and mattress
3. remove another wall and a half of wallpaper in the craft room
4. paint the trim on the wall in the living room/dining room
5. apply to be on an HGTV show
6. fix/redo the master bathroom shower stall
7. buy an electric drill to hang a curtain rod (buy) and curtains (buy)
8. attempt to make my own roman shades for dining room windows
9. buy 3M Command Strips for hanging picture frames in the bedroom
10. buy more white picture frames for the bedroom
11. buy color and black ink for the printer to print out pictures and finish some scrapbook pages
12. spend 15 minutes a day writing my novel
13. move the side table from the basement to the reading room
14. make a book wreath for the reading room

If there is time and money:
1. buy a new dining room table set
2. buy a side table, lamp, and armchair for the living room and hang a picture on the wall

I didn't make my own roman shades, mainly because I looked at the instructions on Pinterest and got SUPER overwhelmed. Like, whoa. I also didn't paint the guest bedroom or buy a bed and mattress for that room. Whatever. The downstairs of our house is still a major work in progress.

And I am rethinking the whole side table, lamp, armchair in living room business. I think I'll forget about that for now and move on to our entryway.

We did get a new dining room table, courtesy of my parents. It was my 30th birthday present! Yes. I am now 30.

Happy New Year!


  1. wow! you did a lot this year....congrats. I hope you share more about your novel on here. that is quite exciting!

    1. Thanks! The novel is definitely something that is going to take longer than a year to complete. It's hard work finding the time to write.
