Here we go!

It’s finally time for the big announcement!

Are you ready?

Really ready?

Well, I am.

So here it goes:

Thank you guys so much for following along with our newlywed life on this blog. I’ve loved getting to know you and a little bit of your stories through your comments and suggestions and advice and all those other wonderful things. Now that we’re settling more into married life and focusing on making our new house our home, the new blog will be more focused on life at home rather than just life as a newlywed.

I’m sure I’ll still have stories and lessons to share about all that lovey stuff (and about Hubs’ snoring and sleep-talking), and there will be room for that, but I’m also excited to bring you guys DIY tutorials and lessons we’ve learned about home ownership and marriage… under construction.

So, please join me in this new journey where we not only get used to living in our new home, but also to loving there, at www.lovinghere.com.

Go ahead, click the new logo! Check it out!

Newlywed Resolutions–LAST CHANCE!

In case you didn’t know, there are only 8 more Wednesdays before Christmas.

That means if you haven’t yet accomplished your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to do that.

Here’s a sneak peak back at our resolutions:

5. Write at least five things that are just for me. I can worry about what to use them for later, if anything.

6. Run more races. I’d love to do another half…maybe a full 26.2? I’m young now, and my knees and ankles and hips will only get worse, right? I only ran 1 or 2 in 2011, and they were fun, so I’m ready for more.

7. Finish reading 8 books that I ALREADY own and have squished into our bookshelf. I’m terrible about buying new books instead of reading ones I already own but haven’t read.

See? It’s full.

8. Use more coupons and take advantage of price matching. I also need to do a better job of keeping track of how much we spend and save.

I can tell you we have NOT accomplished everything on our list yet. Yikes. I’m still working on it. And trying to focus on making measurable progress so I’ll have some things to share with you in January when it comes time to make our resolutions for next year…

Here’s a fun game, which resolutions do you think I have or haven’t accomplished this year? I’d love to hear your guesses!

So what about you? Have you checked in our your resolutions recently? How are you feeling about that progress? Have any you totally gave up on? Let me know!

(Also, as a side note, progress is coming along on the new blog home. I can’t wait to reveal it to you guys, and start getting excited…word on the street* is that there will be a little *giveaway* to help celebrate the opening!)

*And by street, I mean the winding pathways of semi-crazy-semi-organized blog thoughts in my head. 🙂
