Hello there and welcome to what will be a crazy hectic weekend for us! It is going to be packed but will be a enjoyable one particular for certain.

As several of you know, final month was a no invest month for me. I typically do this 1 month out of the 12 months and I believe I’ll make every single January that month from now on. It was just what I required soon after the hustle and bustle and Spending in the course of the holidays. For the duration of these months I don’t commit on anything DIY or decor and it typically spills over to other items like garments and other added things as well. I do even now go out to consume though. 🙂

My to do record is even now very long but did get a great deal carried out! My very first large task of the 12 months (I in fact feel I got it accomplished at the end of last year) was cleaning out the catastrophe that was our storage space:

Most of the tasks I finished during the month were people I had laying all around or on the record permanently. I lastly finished our small basement kitchenette by hanging the shelves that I’ve had considering that final summer:

We stayed home a Lot much more – working out to run errands really grew to become a chore because we had been home so considerably and loved it. I utilised less gas and my automobile (and home!) stayed a whole lot cleaner. I could do this more than when a yr! )
