10 House Goals for the New Year

I have been a little out of the loop, but I want to start the year off with a new outlook and get back to doing the thing I love doing...blogging.
It helps me get my creative juices flowing, makes me accountable for goals that I set myself, and allows me to share a piece of myself with others.
This past year was so busy and packed full of exciting moments that I just didn't get a chance to share with everyone. Landry is definitely one of the best things that has ever happened to me. While it can be very exhausting at times, it is the best job I have. Nothing beats that smiling face! Since we have more of a schedule down now, I am thinking I will have a little extra time. Plus, my husband got me a wireless keyboard for my iPad for Christmas, so I can now enjoy blogging when we are out and about.
Obviously, my favorite thing to blog about is our journey in making our house a home. That's why I think it is so fun to make this list.
Since we got a little off track last year, I am going to add in some of the goals that I didn't accomplish.
Here it goes...
Repurpose the living room- more on that later!
Get new bedding for the guest bedroom
Paint the cabinets in the den
Get one new rug for anywhere in the house
Get two new lamps for the guest bedroom
Make a place for Landry's toys in the den
Paint the doors inside the garage- and possibly new hardware
Have rocking chair reupholstered
Paint one of three things {the coffee table, the breakfast table, or the desk}
Plant something in the front flowerbeds

I am hoping to cross at least five things off of that list. I would consider that to be a successful year! After all, you never know what the year may hold.
Do you set yourself goals for your house? If not, think about doing it. Write it down and post it somewhere you can see it.
