Like I said in my first post, I loved the idea of starting a blog simply to keep me accountable. I have a list of things I would like to accomplish around this little home of ours and I'm hoping this blog will put some fire under me to get them done faster. With, that being said, here's a quick list of some things I'm hoping to accomplish around here before the end of the summer..and it's kind of a doozy..
Office/Guest room
Right now this is my first priority, because I NEED a workspace, other than my dining table
  1. Paint
  2. New art
  3. New office chair
  4. Prettier office supplies
  5. New throw pillows for pull out couch
  1. Paint front door
  2. Furniture for patio
Living Room/Dining Room:
  1. Something for the corner where the slowly dying plant is
  2. Something for over the fireplace
  3. A new (and working) lamp for the bookcase
  4. New throw pillows
  5. New rug for under dining table
  6. New dining chairs
  7. Possibly a new dining table
  8. New prints for the entrance photo collage

Yeah, I'm dizzy just from reading that...Wish me luck!


  1. Hey found your blog from a pic on pinterest, I love finding blogs right when they are starting out, can't wait to see what happens!...Oh and good luck with that list!

    1. Thanks Rebecca for reading! Also, I got your email to Designs By Ashli and am very excited! I will get you more information tomorrow..sorry 12 hour day at my day job, but can't wait to work with you!

  2. i wonder what pottery barn has on their clearance rack right now? sometimes they have throw pillows for less. and remember what you did with those PB placemats. they make lovely pillows. i need a blog to keep me going too. i love reading yours - keep it up - we love hearing from you.

    1. Those are definitely the best throw pillow options for me, I can't spend a lot because I get bored so easily! I am making some outdoor pillows out of placemats right now (those work great for outdoors, since they are meant to get wet)...I have also been stalking Etsy...too many to choose from :)...Thanks for reading! Love ya!


Nothing makes me happier than seeing your lovely comments...except maybe wine...yeah wine makes me happier...but still I love your comments :)
