Loving fall!

I'm feeling like a homebody these days. The cooler weather makes me want to stay at home, clean, redecorate, bake -- anything!

The leaves are definitely starting to turn too. This past weekend we took our pup on a walk through our City's trails. It was so much fun and the scenery was so beautiful. We let Jackson walk off leash. This is something we've never let him do before and I was nervous. But in all honesty, I don't give him enough credit because he was perfect! He walked off leash so well -- in fact we went back for a second walk on Sunday in the same area! I loved watching Jackson run up ahead, but not far enough that we could lose sight of him and then he'd turn around and zoom back to us in excitement. It was so fun! And I can't wait to do it again.

I'm getting the itch to continue finishing our basement! We were doing so well with it last winter and then when the warmer weather hit, we switched gears and started working on projects outside.
Well now, with the chill in the air and the never ending rain, I think it's time to switch back and finish this basement! :)

We're currently at the painting stage. Our media room is finished as far as paint goes and the rest of the basement has had one coat -- so we have another one to go.
Then, it'll be carpet, then probably window coverings and we'll work on the bathroom as we can. Baseboards and other small details are not on my priority list at this time. They can get done in two years for all I care! Haha!
It'll be so nice when its done. We'll have the laundry room, two bedrooms, the bathroom and the media room.


I can already see the finished product!

Anyone else getting the urge to work on some projects around the house?

Yes! We just did crown molding and I really want to keep working on a few different areas! I love being at home on a perfect Sunday in the fall!

Ooo post renovation pictures! I am sooo interested in yours! My house is dragging me down slowly lol Oh and I am sooo jealous that you live in a place where the weather is cooling down already...we are mid 90's all week (although that is a welcome cool down for us lol)

Do it! We've been working on our house every weekend for a while now, always new projects to do. BUT the best thing is looking at your lovely house change and improve, and knowing YOU did it:-) Love it, best wishes on your projects dear.
