Another year down!

Well today marks the second year in my home!  2 years ago today I closed and moved in here!  It was actually the very first day of school too, so needless to say, it was a busy day!  Last year on my first anniversary I shared this post!  The second year was less eventful I guess you could say, but there are still some things of note:

I've cooked a lot more this year!  Thanks to Hello Fresh!

I didn't have any long term house guests like I did the first year, but I did have some fun visitors!  Who I actually now have a bed for in the guest room!  They might still have to sleep among boxes and my Christmas tree but...

I feel like I entertained more this year!
A new Friendsgiving tradition was started... and will continue here!
And I once again hosted Christmas Eve dinner!
The bestie and I Celebrated New Year's Eve here.
One epic "girls only" slumber party was had for my birthday! (And one vera umbrella spent six weeks buried in the snow three houses down...).
And my my family came out for my town's St. Patrick's Day Parade and Celebration!

Lots of time was spent on my Postage Stamp Patio, in my new (to me) lounge chair!  So this summer I have a more even tan!  Woo Hoo!!

During this second year I spent a few weeks in THE BOOT, broke my toe and had laryngitis for a week.  So I spent a lot of time here!  HA!

I've accessorized the house more.  I've added a number of cork cages to the top of my kitchen cabinets!  Which is probably my favorite decorative feature in the house! And added more signs to the walls!  This is one of my faves!!  :)

I blogged about the house more this year.  Find those posts here & here!

I STILL didn't get a chandelier, much to my uncle's dismay!

I also contemplated getting a bigger kitchen table but that will have to wait....thank you Capital One! Cause damn, they are expensive!   Maybe before the next Friendsgiving!

I am pretty much settled into my home and my ways in this little house.  It's the perfect size for me!  I like having friends and family over but also enjoy the quiet nights spent here!

Ya know what, after all this, I think this second year WAS more eventful!
I look forward to what's to come in my next year (or 38)!

Have a great weekend all!


  1. So fun to celebrate you and your home. Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy anniversary. I remember when you blogged about your sign. I loved it. And now I want to borrow the idea of cork cages above my cabinets. I have seen some real cute cages but kept thinking that I don't need more gizmos on my counters. I love adding interesting things to the spaces above my cabinets so now I am on the look out for my first cage. Thanks for the inspiration. So proud of your accomplishments over the past two years.

  3. Congrats on the 2nd year for your home! I'm hoping to have my own home within the next two years, rather than be a renter.


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
