So with a new year just around the corner, resolutions are being made all around the world. To be honest, I've never made a new years resolution. What's the point? Why wait until the 1st of the year to start living a healthy lifestyle? There is one thing that I do at the beginning of the year every year and that is clean out my closet. I do this like 4 times a year but I really get ruthless in January. I guess because I've gone through the whole year and if there is something that I haven't worn all year then its out the door. This year is a whole new story. As y'all know I gave birth almost 3 months ago and well some parts of my wardrobe don't fit me like they did a year ago. Bummer. I have about $1,000 worth in jeans that no longer fit. Guess I should have held off on indulging until I was done having babes. (lesson learned) I can get the jeans on, they just wont button. (that's a problem) And I thought I had wide hips before Kate! Oh well, I'll give it a couple months and if they still don't fit then someone is going to hit the jackpot with my collection. Any takers? I'm sure my sister will be all over it. While I'm on the topic of Kate and cleaning out my closet...I went through her closet today and packed up a bunch of her 0-3 month clothes. SO sad! I can't believe how fast she is growing up!! ((Sigh)) I had to go to Target and buy a bunch of the plastic bins for her clothes. We are obviously saving them in case we have another girl one day. They are far too precious to let go. Chris and I were talking last night about how we would love to put the brakes on life right now. We are loving this stage that we're in. It's amazing. I know it's only going to get better from here but right now, our hearts are content. That is one heck of a good feeling. 2010 is going to be a great year. We have some fabulous plans and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store! I guess it's time we start working on our "bucket list". So back to resolutions....anyone have any? Let's hear em!
Remember that one time my husband bought a tv wall mount and then I decided we needed a new tv stand? And then it made me realize our dark furniture would look way better if I lightened it up? And then it was time to get rid of the old dark throw pillows and dark rug? And then all of a sudden that fireplace looked so out of place. So we gutted it. All because we put the tv on the wall! Here’s a little walk down our DIY family room makeover. Before . I started with this old corner cabinet that i got for free years ago and painted chocolate brown. I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
