31 days to...

If you've read my post about being a Working Mother you know it's something that I struggle with.  There are a lot of balls in the air and one of them consistently get's dropped.  Can you guess which one?

In almost a year of residency I have yet to hang up pictures on nails that weren't already there.  I have not painted besides the half finished nursery.  I have not made this house what it could be, what it should be.  And this is what has inspired my 31 day challenge by the The Nester.  In the month of October I will be joining hundreds of other bloggers to make a change.

To be honest I'm extremely nervous about this.  I'm a terrible decorator and rarely have the drive to be as organized as I should.  But I for the sake of my husband and my son and house I think it's time to make this place a home that I'm proud to show off and hopefully reinforce good habits.  Some days it'll be little things (ie organizing, purging, going through boxes in the closet) other days I hope to achieve so much more (PAINTING.)

  3. Oooh! Sounds like fun! You should try Pinterest for some awesome decorating ideas. I am not very good about decorating either (I obviously DIDN'T inherit that gene from my momma), so I might join you in this challenge. No promises ;)

  4. I'm so excited for you!
    I can't wait to see everything :)
