Do ~ Do

Well, another 31-day challenge under my belt, and I feel indifferent. Honestly, I wish I did more. I still have so many things I want to “do” to improve my mental health, my home, my family, my financial status, etc. There are so many projects that I still need to complete like those deer antlers I was telling you about, doodles room re-org, complete the 1.5 year master bath remodel (although, hubby and I managed to paint it a week ago)

I am the cut-in-girl. I did every room in this house

and now I have a new idea to stencil my kitchen nook in a geo print. I can’t wait for this one! I love instant transformations…I guess that is why I love paint!

I also still need to get my $h!t together when it comes to paperwork (taxes, filing, etc.). Clearly, I couldn’t blog about this…it was bad enough that I blogged about napping.

However, my number 1 need to be “do-ing”, is marketing. Marketing my husband’s amazing talent. If you don’t believe me (about his talent), see for yourself. Carmen Policy (Go Niners!) thought so, when he hired him to design and build his personal wine cellar…

He built an amazingly beautiful, and functional room adorned with custom wine tables (shown in the picture). Hubby (Brandon) has made many wine cellars and countless custom woodworkings….all of equal excellence. His latest pieces of work have included this wine cellar

and custom cabinetry

All shameful plugs aside, he is a man of many talents, and I am glad he is mine (insert cheesy wink here).


To follow-up on some of the things I did manage to “do” during this journey…
~ I can tell you I haven’t breathed much. Well, you know, the methodical way, anyways. However, when I do, it makes a world of a difference.
~I am still learning to balance it all
~I have discovered ways of play that I enjoy doing with the kids (music, board games, outside adventures)
~ I do love the boy’s room value add’s, but I still have the deer antler project to complete (well start)
~ My pantry is still beautiful, and I have purchased a few more bins to complete the project
~ I have learned to love wine and drinking again, and have made spending time with my friends, a monthly priority
~I continue to find better ways to organize, daily and I am sure will share more ideas with all of you
~I also put a magnetic board in doodle’s which is very c’est magnet-fique…this time I used fabric she picked out from Ikea

already being put to good use!

the best part is there was enough fabric left over to re-fabric her kitchen chair that has been obliterated by her messy eating habits. See for yourself…

super cute upgrade!

I think there is even enough fabric left over for a pillow for her room (of course one of my sew friends will have to complete this one).

Anywho, I clearly accomplished a lot in the month of January, and learned a great deal about what is truly important.

Now, that  I will have a little more time on my hand, I think I might actually read! Who knew I would love it so much!

Expect a Fifty Shades book review soon…and hopefully, some new adventures in marketing!

Thanks for following me on my journey! Muah!
