Checking in...

Sorry guys! I have clearly been slacking on my 12 weeks to better photography project, but I am promising myself to start it this week & take some pics to prove what I learned! It's just life is sooo hectic with the little one. I barely get a moment to myself at home because she doesn't take very long naps & by the time she goes down at night, I am utterly EXHAUSTED! And work has also been crazy - ever since getting my promotion, I have taken on a lot more contracts to administer and award. But, I think things at work are going to finally start slowing down - I got a bunch of stuff done at work that I needed to finish up over the last week or so.

The hubbs & I discussed our plans for the house this year & I think the two major things we are going to focus on this year are: 1) getting the interior {re}painted & 2) getting new {energy efficient} windows installed for the whole house. We are not sure how much #2 will cost us, so we'll see about that, but those are the 2 major things. We also planned to re-do our kitchen {get granite, change light fixtures, get new drapes, paint cabinets), but with the baby here, I'm not sure we'll have time to do that this year. Maybe we'll do it in small steps, but not all at once like we had originally planned. I also want to get new furniture for the living room, but I think that'll probably have to wait too. I love modern decor, so I'm always looking through design magazines & websites for inspiration. I'd love to re-furnish my entire house, but I don't think the hubbs is gonna go for that this year, lol.

Anywho, I just wanted to check in with you guys & let y'all know that I'm still alive, lol. I promise that once the spring is here, I'll be doing more projects, which means I'll be updating {with non-baby stuff} more often. 'Till next time!
