November To-Do List

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

My to-do list this month has a very distinct theme. We moved last month so a lot of my list this month will be taken over by the house; but, from what I hear, that’s normal. Everyone wishes us luck now that we are homeowners and I’m starting to understand why we need the luck (haha). I hope you enjoy getting a peek into my everyday life!

Unpack Everything

We have been in the house for about two weeks now and we have done a pretty good job moving in and making the house a home. However, I still have more boxes than I’d like to admit just laying around half empty. My goal is to be completely unpacked by the end of the month!

Get Back Into A Schedule

With everything everywhere, it’s been a fun process trying to figure out how my routines work in this new house. I’m definitely still out of wack and struggling to get into a stable routine. I’m hoping that fully unpacking and organizing will help me get into a good schedule for day to day life and blogging as well! We’ve been so incredibly busy that my blogging schedule is definitely all over the place. I apologize! I promise, this month, I’ll get back on track.

Discover New Things In Our Area

We moved to a completely different town then we were in before and I’m so unfamiliar with the area. My goal is to just drive around the area and discover all the cute restaurants and secret places to go!

Painting Party

Before we moved all of our stuff into the house, we spent a solid 3 days painting. The house was very brown and very dark colors everywhere. If you know me, you know that is not my style at all. I’m so excited to show you guys before and after’s! But, before I can do that, I need to finish up all the painting!

Plan & Order Christmas Presents

With all this moving business, I’m tired of being behind and playing catchup on everything. I want to get Christmas completely done this month so all I have to do is wrap in the month of December! It’s awfully ambitious but I think it can be done (especially with Amazon one click hehe).

Weekend Adventures

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I don’t know about you guys but this nice weather has me feeling extra energized. Finally I can see a light at the end of this winter-ridden tunnel! This weekend, with the amazing weather we were experiencing, I decided to do some exploring. My sister was down for this adventure as she loves hiking and going on adventures more than I do! We drove out into the country and came across this amazing little reservoir. We spent a couple hours just exploring the bank on foot and cruising through the park around it. We came across this fallen tree overhanging the lake and it was just too cute of a photo op to pass up!

It was such an amazing and relaxing day! I love going to new places that I’ve never been to and just taking the time to wander and explore. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life or even the monotonous of suburbia is such a breath of fresh air. Getting out into places where you’re likely to not pass another person is such a great feeling. Not quite the Colorado mountain hike we are accustomed to but we couldn’t ask for better in the Midwest.

I hope you all are having a great week and enjoying the weather before it takes a turn for the worst again!
