Hello friends! How is it already day 9 of 2015??? This year is already starting to fly by. I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New years. Things have been plugging along on this end. Been battling through some migraines since Christmas day, so that has not been fun. I am not really sure what is causing them, but I am ready for them to go away! I used to get them often several years ago, but then they went away for the most part. Other than the migraines, the rest of 2014 was a bit of a let down. I have yet to really post about my last race, and the disappointment that came with not finishing. I know in my head that I pushed myself really hard in 2014 to reach some goals that were challenging, yet attainable, and I am proud of those goals, but not finishing the last race really set me back. I think all year I had this dream and vision that I was going to rock the last few races and really prove that I CAN do this despite some other things I have been dealing with. Not finishing was like a smack in the face with a reality check that I have a lot of work to do….So in lies my goals for 2015 which I am still processing through and working on.
So in other news I was very blessed and fortunate to receive some really great Christmas gifts, spend some quality time with The hubs, and get some things done in my house.
A few weeks before Christmas I was asked several times what I wanted. As I have grown older, I really don’t NEED anything, but there were a few kitchen items I have had my eye on for a while.
I have been in the mood to change some things in our house, but did not want to fork over $$$$ to do it. This past weekend I finally got some new bedding (thanks to a gift card) and painted a dresser that we use for kitchen storage! Bedroom furniture is next on the list to change!!
I am pretty happy with how it all turned out. I have a few areas I need to touch up, but overall I am pretty happy with it. I got the look I was aiming for for around $50 vs $1200!! Not bad, not bad.
How were your holidays?
Have you ever done a DIY makeover?
