Let's talk about Home Goals, shall we? I went over Part One of our 2012 Home Goals on Monday, and now I think I'll go ahead and finish off the list. :)
I think we left off with #5....
6. Sod the backyard....
Have I ever told you that the backyard is my nemesis? No? Okay, well....the backyard is my nemesis.
We put in new flowerbeds last year to compensate for the lack of grass that grew underneath our huge willow trees. Then.....the worst drought on the PLANET happened and killed half of the plants and some more of the existing grass. So...we need to do something about it. I was hesitant at first, but we've been told that bermuda grass will do just fine in super hot temperatures regardless of when we plant it. We'll also need to re-mulch the beds and put in a few more drought tolerant plants. :) Here's hoping!
7. Spruce up the back patio.
Originally we (Bryan) were going to build a pergola in this space, but decided to hold off until we can get the yard looking somewhat decent. While we may wait and see what happens with that, I would like to get a patio table and chairs (for a super cheap price) to sit outside and have dinner on summer nights. And maybe an outdoor rug. And a few flowerpots. And maybe some other stuff too....I haven't figured too much out just yet. :)
8. Paint the patio door.
I would like to clean this little space up and paint the door to match our front door. I love when things match! It's the OCD....
9. Start over on the guest bedroom.
Excuse the mismatched bedding (the pillows don't even have cases on them) and the uneven paint job. This room used to be the junk room, but has since transformed into the guest bedroom. Well actually, it looks more like a catch-all room right now, but I've got big plans to make it over! It's also where the closet office is located, so I really want to make it new again to match the new office :).
10. Decorate the nursery!!!!
I am SO so pumped about this one, but still very overwhelmed on how to go about it. This will be my little man's room and I want it to be perfect. I've probably thought more about this room than I have any other space in the house. In fact, this weekend Bryan and I are heading to the fabric store (for hopefully the last time) to nail down fabrics for the nursery. I almost started crying the last time I went by myself, so he agreed to come and help. Great husband, right?
And that's it! For now, haha. My brain's always coming up with ideas and then throwing them out two minutes later. We shall see what actually ends up being accomplished this year. :) Have a wonderful Thursday!
It's almost the weekend (doing a little dance at my keyboard)!
