What resolutions?

Last time I was here I spoke about resolutions, or more to the point why I wasn't going to make any resolutions this year. I told myself, and you guys as well, that I wanted to "keep it simple" in 2015. Because of the long list of things we had going on we our families and the house, I though it would be a good idea to keep the rest of my life stress free and simple.

WELL!! how wrong was I.

Our to-do-list has doubled in size, mostly because in January Matt and I found out that we are expecting a baby at the end of September. wow! huge news that took us both by surprise but gave us so much joy none the less.

(19 weeks, last week was the first week I felt like a pregnant lady.)

(12 week scan)
As of today I am 20 weeks, which feels so weird to say. And later this week Matt and I have our second scan, or What I like to call "Baby H's second photoshoot". I am so excited to see our little one's fingers, toes and all the little details. I think I am more excited for this scan than I was for our 12 week scan, I'm guessing it's because I kinda have an idea what to expect this time.

Now for a little disclaimer, I'm not going to be taking weeks bump shoots or posting about my symptoms during this pregnancy. Come on, we know I am not go at this blogging thing so don't expect a miracle. I might post a few things here and there, but nothing regular. Part of me still wants to keep things simple, and stressing about getting my blog post up in time is something I will not be doing. We still a million things to do in the house before baby H gets here, so a lot of our time, and money, is spent working on the house.

So it’s the first of January and I guess I should be writing about my amazing year and all about the adventures I’ve been on this year. And I should be sharing my goals and plans for the year ahead. But I won’t. Does that make me a bad blogger? Then again, I’m not a good blogger in the first place so what does it matter! Anyway I am so very grateful for the year I’ve had and yes it has been a wonderful year. Top of the list being that Matt and I brought our first home together. 

About this time every year you’ll find me writing a long list of things I wish to accomplish in the year ahead. But this year I’ve decided to keep it simple. We have a very busy year ahead of us, Matthew and I. With all the work on the house that needs to be done, the trip back to Australia in February for my sisters wedding and my family coming over here for Christmas later in the year I think we’ll have plenty of things to keep us busy in 2015.

Keeping it simple, maybe that is my goal for 2015.

HOME // And in our moments filled with joy, is where I live, where I am free

[Lyrics // Tim McMorris- "overwhelmed"]
Last week I shared photos of our the current state of our bathroom, or the space where a bathroom will be. And I’ll be honest, it’s kinda scary to see how bare the space is. And the fact that it doesn’t even look like a bathroom anymore is even more scary.
So since it’s far from being a functional space I’ve been collecting images of pretty bathrooms that I wish was mind. I'd love an all white bathroom, but with some warmer tones in there as well, like wood and black slate.
I’m not sure how this space will turn out, it’s little overwhelming. I can’t tell you how much time I’ve spent looking at floor tiles. I keep changing my mind. I’m sure there are others out there that feel the same way when they get there first home. But overwhelming as it is, I am exciting and enjoying every bit of it.

Are you renovating your home? or know of anyone who is blogging about there renovating stories? I'd love to hear about it.
