crossing things off the list!

I was looking back over my archives a couple days ago and found an old to do list! What excites me is that I can cross most things off of it!!! Makes me feel that even though I've felt like a crazy person, things ARE getting done!

Finish painting big sister's dresser
Sand and paint little sister's dresser
Make curtains for the girls' room
Finish the apron overlay to the skirt I made months ago
Tailor the skirt I made months ago
Help tear up old wood flooring in bedroom
Help tear up carpet in girls' room
Make/Design little sister's bday invites
Plan little sister's bday party
Crop & order photos to fill the empty frames floating around my house
Design pallet headboard/bed (not sure how far I'm taking the idea yet)
Make pallet headboard/bed
Pick out paint for bathroom
Sand kitchen cabinets
Paint kitchen cabinets

Paint kitchen
Figure out window treatments for my bedroom
Make magnetic board thing for photos over sofa (but only because I did something entirely different)
Order photos

Edit & order photos from the last 2.5 years (minus lake house vacation!!!! I did that!!! HUGE FEAT on my part) and put into albums
Make Tinkerbell/Fairy Halloween costumes for the girls (inspiration came early this year!)
Reupholster & refinish the antique love seat we picked up on the side of the road 3 years ago & has been sitting in the basement since (I think I've finally picked out fabric)

Only three things are left from that list—one of which I am currently working on (kitchen)! Impressed? And I'm not even sure I want to reupholster that antique love seat now. We took family pictures with it last October and I LOVE how they looked with it just the way it is.


So part of me would love to keep it just like this, carry it around with me and take photos on it forever. Nate says no. We'll see.

Now, if only I didn't have a new list to follow that old list, I'd be doing pretty good!! Silly never ending lists!!!



  1. it really feels good to cross things off...I sadly get a huge rush from it! Good job!

  2. Cute family picture! Following you from Friday Follow.

  3. Woohoo! You are the woman! I'm jealous. I love that couch too... just the way it is.

  4. Love that couch....I also love the nekked feet on your girls :-)


I'm so glad that you've stopped by this blog & I LOVE hearing your feedback and questions — however, as this blog is no longer active I may not see it!! But no worries! I've moved all content from this blog to my new website and would appreciate it if you visited me over there: Lori
