2010 Highlights

For my sweet family of three 2010 started with alot of uncertainity.
As my husband graduated and hoped to begin his career as an accountant we knew this year would bring plenty of changes.
Little did we know we would take the project plunge on our little reno pretty quickly.
Here is the home when we purchased in May 09'
By June 10' we had added shutters, landscaped, and changed to a new front door.
Inside lots of ideas were spinning and only a few decisions made.

The dining room got some paint and some of the other grandparents furniture.

Baby's room went from nursery to big girl

And the den went from this .....

{sorry this is such an aweful picture, gah i really hated the mismatching plaid in those curtains}

view from the entry area.

View from the dining room
view from baby's room, looking into entry then den.
{i think you get the idea now}
The laundry closet was given a more esthetically pleasing look.
We had a Lilly Pulitzer themed birthday party for baby girl.

And backyard demolition began.
we removed:
*the hottub
*the coy pond
*the side deck
*painted all vertical pieces white
*sodded coy filled area
*began laying out for new landscaping this spring.

for 2011 we have planned on:
*railings around front porch
*completing master bedroom
*remodel of master bath
*facelift in the kitchen
*completing screened in porch
*completing the playroom/guest room

And just for good measure... guess what i started on Christmas day.

Yes that is a piece of paper staking out where another beauty will one day sit... 
Can't wait to show yall where this is!!! 
Layla's Collection inspired this wall.

Hi! I just found your blog through Miss Rhoda's party and think you have done an amazing job on your home. Everything is just gorgeous! Your daughter's room is especially precious and we are making the transition to "big girl room" in our house too. :-) It is so fun meeting new people in blogland and I would love to have you pop over and say hi sometime!
