2013 Year-in-Review

Better late than never, right? It was so fun to look back at all of the posts over the last year - here are some of my favorites!

In January, I shared my 2012 Resolutions, and make some new ones for 2013. I also shared our current playroom, as well as my inspiration and project list for the new year to turn this space into a functional office/guest room/play space.

I also shared A's big transition to a big boy bed (via a dog bed - true story), which ended up being very successful for us!

And in some business updates, I shared some of my struggles as a start-up small business, and my decision to keep moving forward with my dreams (as well a picture of one of my favorite birth announcement displays, to-date!)

In February, I shared what we gave A for Valentine's Day, some updates to our Master Bedroom,
and celebrated C's birthday!

In March, I shared what I included in A's Easter Basket, and some progress that we had made in the playroom. Knowing that we were repainting shortly, I also shared a tour of our kitchen as part of our Home Tour Friday series.

I also completed two quick DIY projects: a mirror update with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a fabric covered cork board (also for my new office in the playroom).

And last but not least, I shared some of my favorite "Mommy Must Haves" with 4 of my favorite bloggers!

April was a really big month for us! First we celebrated Easter, and shared A's new art space in our playroom!

And the following week, our little guy turned 2! We celebrated with a Little Blue Truck Birthday Party, that was nominated for party of the week on Project Nursery!

In April, we also completed our major bathroom renovation (thankfully, before the birthday party!) - our biggest DIY to-date, and shared our kitchen makeover (which was really just some new paint!)

In May, I shared how I make our family albums through Blurb...

and linked up with my friend Darci to share my dream patio makeover (on a budget, of course!)

In June, I started my "What's Not Working" series - which was the catalyst for a lot of organizing around our house. The first thing we tackled was our DVD collection, and then, our mail.

We also painted our kitchen door, which totally transformed the room. And I also made a few small updates to our dining room.


July is when we started to slow down with house projects - I was pregnant, but hadn't announced it yet, so projects started to be replaced with napping :)

I did manage to update our bedroom with some 2 gallery walls, and while we were away on vacation, I had my friends Emily, Lyndsey, and Colleen all share their "dream homes" via Pinterest. So fun!!

And we also shared our family pictures - some of my favorites to date!

August was a very big month for our family! We announced that we were expecting... TWINS!

And also shared some of our pictures from our family vacation in July. I celebrated my birthday, and also (finally!) shared our guest room.

In September, we had our big gender reveal and I also shared my inspiration board for their nursery.

And lastly I shared a little pregnancy update (at 19 weeks), along with some pictures of my every-growing bump!

In October, we celebrated our four year anniversary, and I also launched our 2013 Holiday Cards on Etsy!

I also shared our new family command center as part of the What's Not Working series.

November was the end of posting for me this year (oops!), but before I was done, I shared our anniversary trip, a 25-week pregnancy update and a little Mommy & Me post with my favorite almost-big-brother.

Wow! What an amazing year!!

I loved looking back at all of these posts, and seeing what we were up to in 2013. This year will certainly look very different with our two little boys set to join us any day now... but we wouldn't have it any other way!
