New Year’s Resolutions

January 7th, 2011

Happy 2011 everyone!

Mr. vB, van and I rang it in in-style over at my friend Greta’s house… If you can believe it I actually stayed up to see the ball drop at midnight, but then was promptly ready to go home and put my pajamas on.  {ha-ha}

So this year instead of doing personal resolutions, Mr, vB and I have decided to do home resolutions. {I was just informed by Mr. vB that statement really doesn’t make any sense.} So for clarification purposes, we resolve to finish the following house projects in 2011.

1. The Exterior of the Back of the House {siding, etc}

2. The Interior of that Back Addition {new tile floor, new paint, finish window trim}


3. The Half Bath on the First Floor {new tile floor, finish window trim, new faucet}


4. The Fireplace and Hearth in the Living Room {new tile surround and fireplace cover}


5.  The Banister and Stairs to the Second Floor {finish stripping, stain, and paint}


6. The Windows in the Office {finish window trim}


7. The Guest Room and Hall {new windows}

8. The Basement {drywall the ceiling, new stairs, replace windows}


9.  The Exterior of the Front of the House {repaint railing, patch porch roof, repaint window trim}


10. Landscape Front Yard {new plantings, sprinkler system}

Wow- I think that is all.

Good thing we have an entire year to accomplish it all and a great Cheerleader to keep us going!

Go Team vB!
