We tend to be pretty low-key around here on New Years. We prefer to stay home, drink sparkling apple juice, play board games with family and watch the big show on TV. Though if I’m being honest, its been years since I’ve made it to midnight ha. This year was much the same, we had some snacks with the kids and played some games and basically just partied it up at home with these fun party headbands and blowers I found.
I don’t have too many resolutions for 2018 ( I would like to exercise more and read more books – but don’t we all though!). I do have a few home decor goals I’d like to accomplish though.
- Finish Owen’s room. He’ll be outgrowing his bassinet in no time and we really need to get his room done soon. I’ll be posting more about my plans for his room but it involves wainscoting, wallpaper and new window coverings.
- Refinishing our stairs. I’d love to paint them white for that piano effect. My hubby still isn’t on board though so we’ll see if I can convince him… I usually can!
- Updating the laundry room. This is a big one… new tile, wallpaper or trim, new cabinets, counter etc. It’ll be a fun one!
I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve, whether its spent at home or out partying and a great 2018 too! I can’t wait to see where this blog takes me… its been a dream for many years that I finally took a chance on. Thanks for all your support. Here’s to 2018!
