Anyone have a 2017 New Year resolution that said “spend less money?!” That might’ve been our only resolution this year, especially this January coming off of a heavy spending holiday month. (Did we live at Costco? Seriously!) This month therefore, we’re cutting back on groceries, shopping without gift cards, and going out.
Falalalala lalalala. Hey there! It’s been quiet around here on the blog since the One Room Challenge finish. There are a few projects there that I haven’t given more details on, but didn’t think it fit quite into those holiday vibes this month, so we’ll save them for after the New Year! Right now I just want to talk about everything lovely and Christmas. Especially our Scandinavian inspired Christmas decor decking our halls this year!
We did it! We completed our second One Room Challenge (along with over 180 other bloggers) and finished our master bathroom makeover in 6 weeks. As predicted, there were some bumps, but all in all we completed the vision and have been enjoying our completely made over space.
Now that the wet and cold are upon us in Washington, I thought I’d share the baby running gear that keep me and the baby getting out for our runs regardless of what the weather is doing! Running has always been my workout of choice. I love what the fresh air does for my peace of mind and creativity. It’s a serious reboot from a day of house tasks, computer, etc.
I’m soon to be an Auntie for the first time. And it may happen on Christmas day. What a joy that would be! I got the luck of the draw getting the only sister-in-law I have. She’s amazing, kind hearted, an incredible teacher to little children, always laughing, an encourager, and a huge go-getter. Basically this little baby is going to have one fabulous mama. So to celebrate her and his growing self, some gals and I threw her a mountain themed baby shower! The decorations were my job and I had just a little bit too much fun getting them all together so I had to share.
