When it comes to sprucing up the house, nothing motivates me more that having parties. In 2009, it was the housewarming. In 2010, it was Brent's 30th birthday. And for 2011...
March – couple's shower party
May – my mom's 60th birthday party, wine-tasting party
October – 2nd annual beer-tasting party, Octoberfest style
So right now, I'm trying to prioritize my 2011 goals to figure out what I want to have done before the first party. I'm thinking the kitchen cabinets, man cave built ins and painting the third bedroom – are the winners.
