We have been doing a lot of projects on our new house and this wasn’t the first, but it is one of my favorites. As my friends well know, I have a soft spot for kitchen gadgets and I work in a place where I can sometimes get some deals on them so I have a substantial collection.
The kitchen has four big, wide drawers and I filled one of them with utensils and gadgets. Unfortunately, they were just big and open and impossible to keep straight. Ever since I found this post on Pinterest, I knew what I had to do. Read more
I know I haven’t posted in way too long. We got the house! We are moved in and everything is going well. We have made several updates that I hope to be posting about soon.
Between moving and the holidays, things have been very busy. We hosted Thanksgiving for some of our immediate family just three weeks after closing on the house. A month later we hosted the Christmas party for his mom’s side of the family. Crazy? Yes, but it was really fun and proved that the house can easily take a crowd. We truly hope that this will be a home regularly filled with family and friends.
Updates, modifications, and maintenance to the house have been an ongoing project. We have done a few little projects but have many more to go. We walked through the house room by room with a notebook. Each room has a page and we listed all long and short-term projects we would like to do for each room. It is a bit daunting to say the least. Most of the projects require more funding than we have now. Mostly, we are waiting for some warmer temperatures to get started. It should be exciting!
