2012 In Review

2012 In Review

In January I came up with some goals for 2012.

Let’s see how I met, or didn’t meet, the top 3 goals I had for our home in 2012:

  1. Have carpet installed upstairs.  So that clearly didn’t happen!  But thank God it didn’t…I love our laminate flooring
  2. Complete a Kitchen renovation Check!
  •      Paint Cabinets yep!
  •      Upgrade from ugly 1987 junky appliances to stainless steel. yep!
  •      New countertops yep!
  •      Out with the florescent lighting and in with recessed and pendant lighting yep!
  •      Place horizontal paneling on the walls in our breakfast area. yep!
  •      Obtain a casual dining set yep! But not only did I get a new casual set, it’s replacing our formal set so that the dining room will become Alex’s office leaving us with room for a guest bedroom AND a nursery (for someday) upstairs.

3.  Obtain new/used furniture for the master bedroom and make the room cozy and romantic. Partial-check!  We have the bed and side tables for the master bedroom.  The rug is in the mail (thanks to my work bonus and RugsUSA.com 75% off Christmas sale!).  We still need two dressers to go on either side of the closet doors and  a lot of accessorizing before it’s cozy and romantic.

I suppose it’s almost time to create some 2013 goals!  I’m definitely not short on ideas 🙂
