Help Around the House

While my parents were here I got some major help with my house to-do list.  My dad put up the shelf/coat rack in my downstairs closet.  Yay!  I worked really hard...I watched.  :)  He did a great job though, and that marks one more thing off my list.  It also allows me to free up a bunch of space in my closet, because all of my coats can come downstairs.  And we all know, I love free space in the closet.  Because it means I get to fill it ;)

Here is the "house to do list" that I created in my New Years Resolution post.  I have gotten to cross a few things off the list, but I obviously have a bit to go.  At least it's only April...

  • Paint both upstairs bathrooms (I did one, does that count? yes, I no longer want to paint the other.)
  • Replace mirrors and light fixtures in the bathrooms (not planning on doing this anymore)
  • Get towels and bath mats (that actually match)
  • Hang a rod for coats in the front hall closet 
  • Weather strip the front door
  • Hang curtains in my bedroom
  • Get a nightstand for my room
  • Hang curtains on the living room window
  • Organize the garage
  • Put a backsplash up in the kitchen (maybe)
  • Look around for bargains on granite or nice kitchen counters and see if I can redo mine (dream)

In other news, my mom was also pretty helpful.  She hemmed two pairs of pants for me.  Yes, I am that girl that has had (and possibly been wearing...) pants with the hem falling out of them, since September.  Yikes.  I thought about taking them to a tailor so many times, but it just never happened.  She's really good at it!  And to give me a little credit, she was begging to do something for me.  

Thanks Mom and Dad!!
