It’s time to look back on the year and all that we accomplished with the house and the new adventures we had. As a quick overview we:
- had the trees professionally trimmed and fixed the irrigation system
- remodeled two bathrooms
- put a new color scheme in the master bedroom
- removed a wall and added cabinets and countertops to the kitchen
- added new curtains and new pillows throughout the house
- built a king size bed and headboard
- set up a 3rd guest bedroom in the basement
-was a quiet month of blogging, probably because we were so busy working on projects! Check out all the projects I did here.
– My SIL had the idea to live in a barn. After seeing some inspiration photos, I actually loved the idea!
And I made this lovely entry way table from Ana White
We started the remodel on the last bathroom in the house – the main bath.
I spent some time on pinterest and made these delicious vanilla chai cupcakes.
I took an old Ikea rug and made it new – with some chevron print.
We took a vacation to warm sun and sandy beaches
I hosted my sister in law’s baby shower
And I ran the Colfax 1/2 Marathon – my only long race of the year.
We started on the kitchen demolition – taking out a wall and creating more cabinet and countertop space.
We finished the bathroom project
I painted our bedroom gray twice in one day – two different shades. Because it’s so hard to find the perfect gray…
We welcomed our niece Audrey to the world – a few weeks earlier than planned!
I made some planter boxes and started planting some herbs, vegetables and some plants.
I painted the tile in our downstairs shower
I made a fabric headboard
and we had my favorite kiddos out for vacation fun!
August was a busy month – but not much blogging. We added new countertops to the kitchen.
We spent some time in the mountains to celebrate my birthday.
And I made a plan for a month of meals for September.
I blogged about the details of my month of meals here.
I shared some of my favorite meal recipes here, including sweet potato gnocchi.
September and October were crazy busy – but we survived and I even managed to sew up a few new pillows for the living room.
We also went to visit my family in South Carolina and spent some quality time with the parents.
After a few crazy months I must have been exhausted because I only blogged once – and it was a recap of projects!
But we did host my parents and both brothers and their wives for a fantastic Thanksgiving celebration!
We hosted another baby shower for some good friends.
We got our first snow of the season.
And I worked on several projects around the house during the holiday break.
Phew – what a year – and so great to put it all down so we can see all that we accomplished! Happy 2013!
