100DC2 // Checking In After 25 Days

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Last week I took an impromptu blog vacation that coincided with a vacation from my 9-5. Didn’t do anything fancy, it was just a house and life admin kind of vacation. Sometimes you just need those, ya know?

Today I’m back with a check-in post for my second 100 Day Challenge. Four weeks ago I shared my outline of goals (HERE), and I honestly can’t believe that those 25 days have already gone by. Today I just wanted to share my progress with you, and to also say I probably won’t be continuing these challenges in the new year… we’ll see! I might adjust them to be quarterly goals, or who knows! But without further ado, let’s crack on!

Living With Less // Improve Organization

Good morning! 

I have struggled to write this post for quite some time now. No, actually, scratch that. I’ve struggled to start this post for quite some time now. I didn’t even get to the writing part.

This post was originally scheduled for mid-July, then the end of July, then early August, but I just had no idea what to write about, so I kept pushing it back farther and farther until finally it landed here today. Hello! I’m ready now!

Mini Makeover // Jeep Cargo Hold

Hello, Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m excited to share a mini makeover I completed on my Jeep this weekend. If you read my original 20 Goals for 2020 post (HERE), you may recall that after my dad passed away in February, my mom and I decided to switch cars around. I gave my mom my Mazda CX5, and I took over my dad’s Jeep, once we were able to officially transfer the titles.

As with any “new” car, there are things you learn about it after you drive it for a while. The Jeep has some quirks that I’m still figuring out. Sometimes I’m convinced it’s possessed, lol…

100 Day Challenge #2

Good morning, my lovelies!

First of all, Happy Autumn! In this weird world we live in, who thought this day would ever actually come?

I recently found myself wondering what I would do with my “free time” after ALL of my home projects were completed (nevermind the fact that home projects are never really complete). Would I just take it easy? Or would I find something else (that is, an optional something, not something that had to be done out of necessity) to do? The answer to both: yes.

Bathroom Reno // Phase 1 – The Reveal!

Good morning!

Today I am SO excited to share the real of Phase 1 of my bathroom renovation! Not only am I excited, but I’m so proud of what I accomplished to transform this space from what it was to what it is now. For a reminder of what it was before, you can check out my previous bathroom tour HERE. And in case you missed the halfway point progress, you can see the nitty gritty HERE.

It’s A Wrap! My First 100 Day Challenge

Hello, hello! Long time, no write!

I’m back after an unintentional, month-long (plus) hiatus! And just in time to recap my first 100 Day Challenge. Today is Day 100!

In case you missed the intro to my 100 Day Challenge, you can catch up HERE. And I shared 25-day-point and 50-day-point check-ins, HERE and HERE, too. The gist: I chose nine goals, over three broad categories, to tackle over a 100 day period.

A 40 x 40 Check In + New Priorities

Good morning!

Tomorrow marks the halfway point into my 37th year on this planet we live on. So I thought I’d checkin on my 40 x 40 list progress. In theory, my last checkin post (HERE) should have gone up in January (when I celebrated my 36th birthday), but as it turned out I only posted it just 2 short months ago. So not much new to report here…

Monday Musings // 07.27.2020

Hello friends,

Just a short post today, to say I had an unexpected realization over the weekend:

I worked on a project this weekend for phase one of my bathroom renovation and it required building something from scratch. It was a little nerve wracking to start, but was extremely satisfying when it pretty much worked out how I planned. I was very proud of my efforts and happy with the results. I have a lot of moments of self doubt and it was nice to have a moment of confidence for a change.
