Keeping up with life is hard. Keeping up with house projects is even harder. Despite my lack of blogging in the past few months, I still enjoy making house goals every year to help guide what I want to accomplish in working to make our house more of a home and more cozy.
Since we have a baby on the way, I’m not going to get crazy with my goals this year. I’m trying to stay reasonable and keep these goals within reach. I must say that having these goals really gets me motivated to cross some things off my list, and I usually do quite well at achieving them because I actually do take the time to make the list and keep it close by.
Complete Landry’s closet
Replace mailbox and mailbox post
Add finishing touches to courtyard
Purchase rug for breakfast room
Have artwork framed and hung
Make some changes to the nursery
Get new bedding for the master bedroom
Change at least one main light fixture
Get planters for the front door
Have a new breakfast table made
Most of my house goals this year include very few DIY projects and more purchases. I consider it an accomplishment to complete at least half of my goals each year. Last year, I completed a total of six goals thanks in major part to my husband. Crossing my fingers to a successful year! And if I don’t, at least I’ll have another sweet little baby to divert my attention.
