What's Been Happening

It's been quiet around here lately... I thought I would pop in to say that I haven't given up on the blog, I've just been really busy with other endeavors. Jason and I decided a few months ago to replace the carpet on our first floor with wood laminate, and we've been taking baby steps towards that goal ever since!

What began as a lofty project has become even more so because along the way we decided to re-purpose a few of the rooms, and figured that while we have carpet ripped up and baseboards pulled off we might as well repaint the walls while we're at it. So far we've actually accomplished a decent number of tasks: moved the workout equipment out of the small room in the basement and into the larger part of the basement, moved our guest room furniture into that small basement room and started to transform it into our new guest room, ripped up carpet and prepped the subfloor in our old guest room (which will be our new office), painted the old guest room (just finished that today!), ripped out the carpet and prepped the subfloor in the hallway, painted the hallway, and painted the living room and installed new blinds, curtain rods, and curtains. It feels like we've done so much, but we've yet to even start on the floor itself! We have a three-day weekend coming up so hopefully we can finally start on that.

So anyway, I've still been cooking occassionally, but just haven't taken the time to post about it. Maybe in the near future I can post some before/after pictures of what else I've been busy with.

Happy New Year!
