Warrior Weekend #1

Let me just start by

saying I have freaking

awesome friends.


Back in March, my friends Lynn and James, along with my then roomie, Christine, tackled an unimaginable amount of “to do” from my run on project list in what I like to refer to as a “Warrior Weekend”.  I never cease to be amazed with the amount of progress that can be made with the right people!

Within five hours on a Sunday, we (with 99.5% of the credit going to James) accomplished the following:


Swapped out all the outlets and switches in the master bedroom from bisque (die bisque die!) to white.

Whipped out a raised bed garden frame.

Frames out the master bathroom mirror.

Oh yeah…

and we built a dinning room table from scratch…

no biggie.

Now, it all still needs a bit of work, caulk here, paint there, but I’m stoked!

I can’t wait for the next

Goals for June

I’m a list person. It’s the crossing off part that I tend to struggle with. Every month I see bloggers far and wide sharing their goals and I secretly think, “wow, look at those ambitious, highly-productive, stinking awesome ladies!”

I know I’m a little late to the game but, for some added accountability, I’ve decided to launch my best-of-intentions “Goal List” into the ether. Let’s see if public scorn is enough of an incentive to keep the fires lit!

Here is how I’ve done so far. 🙂
