Home Goals 2012

I can't wait to share all of the projects we completed in 2011,
on and off my Goal List.

But first, here are my 2012 goals!

My biggest 2011 goal actually didn't get completed before December 31...
so now it's been added to the 2012 list.
the ball is rolling and we are about to take on a major remodel.
can. not. wait.
I literally sit in our family room and dream of what that space will be like!

painting and updating kitchen cabinets
new white subway tile backsplash

these are my inspiration photos!


busting out tile/ ripping out carpet
laying hardwood floors in kitchen, family room, breakfast room!
all the credit for that will go to my hubby!

re-upholstering armchairs/ picking a new rug for family room
and rearranging furniture...
love these chairs! found the fabric for $5/yd on sale at Ballard Designs!

completing big boy room transformation
I just ordered this wall map... my patience paid off! 
Originally $129 & I ordered it from the PB Warehouse sale for $79!

adding final touches to the nursery
this photo was the inspiration for how to display her name!

updating the guest bathroom
using these drapes from West Elm as the shower curtains!
and a few other things...

must save some as surprises for you
and leave time for any other projects that catch my eye!

Happy 2012!

Happy 2012, to all of my fabulous followers!
I am so pleasantly surprised that you stuck around - probably missing my posts terribly
Thrilled was I to see that no one left during my sabbatical.

Sadly, my last post was September 16th!
WOW! I missed posting fall and Christmas decor - oops 
but we have had a quite eventful 3 months around our house!
We were blessed with baby #2 on October 3rd and have been soaking up time with her!
and wrapping up some house projects - a few of which are featured below.

Here is a recap of what we've been doing...
I am so excited to be back and look forward to sharing all of my
decorating and remodeling throughout 2012 with each of you!

our precious baby girl was born!

finished hand painting/ stenciling the laundry room..
Hubby called it my "Sistine Chapel" haha

celebrated Thanksgiving with my family!

spent lots of time with my sweet mom!
I don't know what we would've done without all of her help...
quite an adjustment going from 1 to 2 kiddos!

baked and decorated lots of Christmas cookies!

spent a blessed Christmas with family celebrating Christ's birth

Hubby designed & built a coatrack area
(details and more pics coming soon!)

and we're absolutely loving being a family of 4!

check back soon to see my home goals for 2012!
It's going to be an EXCITING year around here!
