Well, it's been a long time since I've sat down and really thought about blogging. I've been getting lazy and simply sending photos from mine or Jeff's cell phone. But I must tell you, I love this feature!
Anyway, it's been quite a busy few months getting settled into my new home, my new job, my new NAME. ;) Things at the Gough house are going well. I'm enjoying turning this once bachelor pad (ok, so it never really was that- I've always had my hand in things) into our home. I'm quickly realizing that as a home owner there's always something more to do and I'm starting to get discouraged that it will never be done. I do, however, have hope and determination!
Here are a list of projects I've been working on (hopefully this will make me feel accomplished):
-Unpacking wedding gifts and finding a place for them. We were generously blessed!
-Stripping paint off doors we bought at the Re-Store to turn into a headboard for our bed
-Slowly moving my belongings over from my parents house (I'm still not completely moved out!!)
-Creating a "garage sale" pile and loving the process of downsizing or at least purging
-Turning one of the bedrooms into "OUR" craft room. More on that later. The craft table was a wedding present from Jeff- I love how supportive he is of my hobbies! Here's a before photo.
-Picking out paint colors for the laundry room- a pale mint green, and bonus room- a gray/green/blue and olive green (for the cove that will house Jeff's desk)
-Planting an herb garden with the help of Rebekah (she gave me all of the herbs AND planted more than half) Thanks so much! I love using fresh herbs in my cooking and I've already been enjoying them. I have- basil, oregano, dill, thyme, cilantro, rosemary, lemon balm, peppermint, and sage. Anyone have any favorite herbs?
-Co-hosting a "gender reveal party" with my friend Katie for "Baby Courter"- It's a boy!
-Finishing a quilt I've been working on with Keri for my friend Laura who got married last Fall. Keri and I started it in October- we took our time ;)
Ok, I feel great...thanks for letting me share.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Is it wrong that I'm already looking forward to the weekend?
