Life Lately Part 2

 Hello again! Over the weekend I realized that I had not done a Life Lately post on here in over 2 months... and I had a LOT of pictures to share! On Monday I shared the first half, and now here I am today to share the rest. Snuggle up under a cozy blanket and come see how the Darrell's celebrated the holidays 😁

So where we last left off we were between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We were buckling down and staying home as much as possible due to rising COVID numbers, so we spent a lot of time baking and doing crafts at home. I have to say, while the reason for staying home so much this holiday season was obviously terrible, it was actually kind of nice to be forced to stay home. This was the first Christmas season in years where I didn't feel stressed from trying to do too many things. We didn't have any holiday parties to attend this year. No Christmas plays at school (sad, but it's always another thing to squeeze into the calendar). No "extra" activities because they weren't happening this year. It was the most relaxing and peaceful holiday season we've had in a very long time, and I'm hoping next year we don't go back to all the busy-ness again.

Here we are baking some Christmas cookies:

Life Lately Part 1

 Hi there! I hope you had a nice weekend and your Monday is off to a great start. I realized over the weekend that I haven't done a "Life Lately" post in over 2 months. That is a long time considering we've had the holidays and so much else going on! I decided to split this post into a part 1 and a part 2 because otherwise this post would have 50+ photos... and nobody has time for that! Today is going to be  a random dump of photos from my phone from mid November- mid December. Then on Wednesday I will share the rest! Grab yourself a cup of coffee and come see what we've been up to lately:

Our Experience With Modsy Online Interior Decorating

 Hey there friends! Happy Friday! Today is the day we were supposed to be cleared to move back into our home-- but it got pushed back another week, ugh! After 5 months of renovations we are SO excited to get to move back home. Back in September we began our major renovation, and as we were getting closer to moving back in Devin and I were trying to figure out how to use the furniture we previously had in our new space. We knew we needed to buy some new furniture, but wanted to try to use what we had wherever possible. We kept going over the layout in our heads and kept getting frustrated trying to make it work. Luckily I have a wonderful friend, Kathleen, who had recently used the website Modsy to help redecorate her home office and master bedroom. She suggested we give Modsy a try and I am SO happy we did!

January Goals

 It feels a little funny to be just now posting my monthly goals and we are almost halfway through the month, but this month was off to a busy start! If you are new around here I am a big believer in goal setting. I love to set goals for myself each year, and then mini goals each month towards helping me reach my bigger goals. Last week I posted my yearlong goals for 2021, and this week I am sharing some smaller goals for the month of January.
