Picture This: Week 1, 2014.

I enjoyed this last year, and the tradition stayed alive over the holiday break as I rarely knew what day it was. 

Last year, I started a picture-a-day project with the new year. My intent was and is to try and appreciate every day, the good and the bad. I'm posting weekly recaps of the past seven days. It's a fun way to  recap the week, and keep me motivated for the next week. By throwing it up to the interwebs, it's a not so subtle reminder to myself that if I'm laying around all week and taking pictures of my feet poking out of a blanket as I watch Netflix for the millionth time, I'm going to bore everyone to sleep. Not that I care, guys. That being said, it's rarely ground-breaking, but I couldn't handle that anyway. It's a log of my life, and a gentle reminder to myself that life is a gift and I should take advantage every day. I don't want to get preachy. If you do this, I want to know so I can nose around. In the least creepy way possible. You can start anytime, too - a new year doesn't have to start on January 1. Steph created one mid-year. Veronica does this as well, but I'm losing faith in her ever updating her blog. Check out my past weeks through the "picture-a-day" topic link on the right.

I'm holding onto Christmas a little longer than usual this year. The holiday came and went so quickly that I feel like I missed the moment, so I'm grasping onto sweet sleeping Christmas kitties as long as I can.

In the wee hours of New Year's Eve, we finished the first coat on our bedroom walls. It feels so good to have a color somewhere in the house.

My sister texted on New Year's Day that Best Buy had iPhones for $125. I'd been holding out on my upgrade, but the price had dropped enough for me to grab the gold phone.

The new year brought my first serious snowstorm in years. A foot of snow fell in a day - so much that you can't tell there are two steps down to the patio out there.

Zach's brother Ian came in for the weekend. The first night, we enjoyed a nightcap at the bar- a party that Henry couldn't miss. Zach pulled a stool over for her, relegated me to the side so that she could sit in the middle, and Henry jumped up to hang out.  She's a character.

We toured Great Lakes Brewery on Saturday, along with sampling some pub exclusive brews. I greatly recommend (it's free) and the pub serves awesome pretzels made with the brewery byproducts.

I am pumped about this furniture makeover. I took Mum's wood varnished fish tank stand (which hasn't been used as such in years, so maybe we'll call it a sideboard) and painted it with some rejected dark green paint from Ace ($10 for a gallon!) and highlighted it in bright green from a sample pot on sale at Lowe's ($3!). It'll look even better once that window is trimmed in white.
