Our big project for the coming year is saving for and buying a house.  That will dictate the rest of the projects based on what that needs.

As for our condo, we’re planning to paint before we put it on the market, and probably rent a storage unit to help with the “staging”, rather than looking like what it is.  Two people and all their crap crammed in.

I just did a lot of redecorating (simple things like hanging photos) b/c I have a friend coming to visit soon.

My next projects will be making chanukah presents and I’m going to DIY our photo holiday cards this year.

We are also currently renting, and are saving to buy sometime next year (hopefully!) So I guess right now we are just focused on not spending money when we don’t have to! 🙂

Ahh we have so much to do now that the wedding is over:

So far we have:

  1. Installed hard wood floors
  2. Installed new baseboards
  3. Bought a new sectional
  4. Rebuilt a cabinet that had water damage (now just open shelving for microwave, etc)
  5. Cleared out weeds in front bed

We still have to do:

  1. Plant something in front flower bed
  2. Trim trees before fall
  3. Plant sod in back yard
  4. Finish painting living room
  5. Tackle master bathrooms (remove wall paper and repaint)
  6. Pull up carpeting from sun room (probably not until after winter)
  7. Decorate master bedroom (new curtains and some paint)

I just started grad school, so that’s beginning to monopolize my time, but otherwise:

  • Hang photo collage above one living room couch
  • Finish mounting and framing my movie ticket stubs (I’ve been collecting as long as I can remember)
  • Get rid of our old plates and cooking pans
  • Hang curtains in our living room (in that case, find curtain panels other than sheers for the super long window!)
  • Finish our wedding album
  • Find a table for the porch (it’s a little screened in 2nd story porch)
  • Put together my fall wreath
  • Plant our cranberry tree and herbs
  • Go through my holiday decor collection and decide what I really want to keep

We’ve just started looking around in the housing market to buy – so most of our projects are going to do with that. I also have to;

– go to the German embassy and legally change my surname to my married name
– book flights for Munich and Madrid next year
– get our side photography company set up and on it’s feet by Christmas otherwise it’ll never be done
– find myself a regular paying job, I’m changing careers at the moment so it’s harder than usual
