A new year is upon us...

Really...where does the time go?!?! Oh, wait I know...into our work, our house, and our house again. I am sad to see 2007 gone and past, but I look forward to 2008 and what's to come.

Another dang resolution...

You know what, my resolution this year is to no longer use "stick to my diet" as my New Year's resolution every year! Cause, it's my resolution every time I wake up...I know I'm not alone on this...and I warn anyone interested in remodeling that one of the side affects is feeding your soul with yummy snack cakes...so be ready!

What this year means for me...

Hopefully continuing to grow in all the appropriate and manageable ways, taking time out from our money pit, I mean house, to have a lil down time, preparing for my California Interior Design certification, working on making our house a place I want to come home to, and my blog...giving it the energy it needs to continue on and supporting my fellow bloggers...

What about for you?

As for the lil house that could...

Things are coming along and we are going to hit the bigger areas soon, like our main living and our kitchen, oh and new windows!!! I pray that we can stick to our budget. For Christmas this year, Santa promised to wrap up the construction in our spare bathroom...and he did! Know it's time to work on the details...window coverings (cause these old windows are scary), finding drapery for my shower curtain, towels...etc!

The lovely before...

The almost lovely after...still needs some work, but we'll get there...

but, I love the my flooring the bathrooms, can you believe I got this for only $6/sq. ft.!!

I wish you all a Happy New Year!!! Hope 2008 brings you happiness and some peace of mind!
