We are finally getting a few last things done around the house. We didn't want to pay for everything to get done after we moved in because we thought that would be overwhelming. The first thing on our list was to find a blind for our front door and the window above the door:
Let me just tell you that no store carries an 81" blind. We had to have it custom made and thanks to a coupon code online we got it for less than $90. Now we just have to find a blind for the window above the door. Hopefully we will be successful this weekend.
Next on our list is replacing all of the light bulbs. We are changing them all to the energy efficient, this could get pricy because we have somewhere around 50 light bulbs in the house haha. I know it needs to be done so maybe we can use the Sears giftcard we have to check that off the list.
I am also still searching for curtains for our bathroom. There is a huge frosted glass picture window and a smaller one. I have searched high and low for curtains but I guess I'm too picky for my own good lol. It's not a huge priority since no one goes in there except us.
Since we are getting close to spring I want to plant a garden in the backyard, I want to have some fresh vegetables and herbs. Hopefully this is a project we can get started in the next few weeks or so. Praying I can actually grow something since I am notorious for killing plants. :) I would love something like this:
Since we get such high winds here we noticed last weekend that we were getting a bit of a whistling noise from the bottom of the front and back doors. We found them at Bed Bath and Beyond, so for $14.99 we don't have that whistling noise anymore haha. I had always seen those draft guards on TV but never thought they would actually work:
They are AWESOME! The whistling noise is gone and the tile near the door is not as freezing. I highly recommend them.
Well, I hope you all are enjoying your Friday! :) Have a great weekend!
