Lakehouse offer accepted!

Wahoo! Making a move on goal #6: downsize and move to a small lakefront cottage.

The offer was accepted on this super cute lake house (contingent on selling the “too much house” house!) I am so excited. Someone pinch me! Though this baby is a fixer upper, it will be oh so good when it’s done. Lakefront morning coffee, here I come.

I die. Hgtv do you want to feature my renovations?! IMG_9404.JPG

You know how sometimes you make a list with things you know you are going to do that day so you can cross them off and feel accomplished. Like, “Take a shower” and you do it and think to yourself, “Check! I am already getting so much done today – go me!” – this goal is kinda like that, which brings me to one of my easier, long-term goals towards self love:

Goal 16: “Start (and continue) a regular manicure routine.”

Now, before you judge me, let me explain this goal a bit more. I swear, it isn’t as narcissistic as it sounds.
