I randomly decided to look at the ol' blog today, and noticed the last time I posted was almost exactly a year ago today! So crazy, right? I guess that means its time for a new post.
I was so into this whole blog thing when I first started out, but then life got in the way (a.k.a. I got really busy at work and no longer had free time to write new posts). I wish I could tell you I have a bunch of awesome house updates to share with you, but unfortunately we've been moving at a snail's pace. Mainly with boring things like painting trim, replacing doors, new toilets, you get the picture. Nothing super exciting or photo-worthy, but still important.
I still love decorating (and always stop at the home section at Target!), but I'm not quite as obsessed as I was a few years ago. I rarely look at the home decor blogs I used to love so much. I guess I've realized that making real, live updates to a house is so much harder than creating inspiration board on Pinterest, and it kind of took the fun out of it for me! I know that seems obvious, but I really sort of just lost my steam when it came to decorating. So I guess I'm taking a "time out" for a little while.
But here's what I've been doing in the meantime. I won't bore you with a year's worth of pics, but here are some of my favorite memories:
"Friendsgiving" at Nathan & Laura's house. It was a potluck-style early Thanksgiving celebration in October, and I can't remember the last time I was so full. The food was amazing!! And I love, love, love the table set up! It was perfection.
In November I got to fly to San Francisco for a work conference, which I loved. I never get to travel for my job, so it was a new experience for me. The hotel was amazing! I only stayed two nights and was working each day so I sadly didn't get to explore the city. I definitely want to go back with Tony, because SF is awesome!

Christmas was very eventful this year, as always. On Christmas morning we had Tony's family over for breakfast, and I had fun setting up the table.
And of course, we watched many, many Seahawks games this year.

Last month a group of us stayed at a cabin near Mt. Baker for a friend's birthday. Sadly, the weather didn't cooperate and we weren't able to go snowboarding, but we had a lot of fun playing games, walking through the woods, drinking, and watching movies.

A few weeks ago I went on a much-needed girl's trip to Leavenworth. This trip was so much fun. We went to a few wineries, cooked some meals at the rental house, and relaxed by the river.
And one more random pic because I love it!
