Keen for 2018

I am completely in love with this time of year. I think it’s incredible. I love the hustle and bustle of shopping, the pretty lights, and everyone’s festive spirit. With the exception of the weather, this time of year is my favorite.


That being said, I am really looking forward to the new year. I feel myself getting excited by home improvement projects (adulting, am I right?) and a fresh start. I’ve never been one for new year’s resolutions, so I won’t say I’ve gone so far as to plan something I actually want to stick to, but I am excited to get some things accomplished.

I have a list about a mile long of projects that I want to get done and I honestly don’t think they are all going to be completed within 2018, but I’m not super stressed about completing them either. It’s a weird feeling for me to have. Like, usually having a long list like I have would stress me out. This year, I’m just going into it with a more relaxed attitude and will accomplish as much as I can. No pressure.

I’m also incredibly stoked to have 10 straight days off work starting tomorrow afternoon!

Have a safe and happy holiday, everyone!


Moving Montage

Hey, guys!

I don’t know if you remember, but in my Dog Mom For Days post, I mentioned making a video of our whole moving experience. A couple disclaimers here:

  1. Boyfriend and I are total amateurs when it comes to shooting video and video editing. That being said, we learned a TON from making this video and plan to record a lot more! (We just got a new camera today and plan to take it with us everywhere.)
  2. The video is quite a bit longer than we expected, but we still feel like we didn’t capture everything. What you are about to see is just a snapshot of the work we did in our new home.
  3. Our house is not done yet by any stretch of the imagination! We want to do more, buy more, be more! So be prepared for more home improvement adventures from us.

Okay… Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Here it is! Enjoy!
