While I was working on some Halloween projects last night in my living room, such as rearranging some furniture and making creepy spider egg sacs, I realized how much my living room has changed over the past seven months of living here. I thought it would be fun to share some photos of how the room currently looks now in October and how it used to look back when we moved in.
Not every project needs to be a huge undertaking. For me, I like to complete small projects when I can, it helps me feel productive, like I'm actually getting things done around the house. I try to keep in mind something I once read in a book called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. She makes a point to tackle tasks that take three minutes or less in her day-to-day life. I sort of apply that to DIY projects. If it will take less than an hour, why avoid it?

Today's post was graciously written by Amy from the blog Triangle Honeymoon. I fell prey to checking her blog everyday when I learned that similar to myself, she babies her pups like there's no tomorrow and shares a love of DIY projects. I asked her to give us a rundown of her blog and how she manages to stay so composed when she's living a life that has so much going on.
Happy Pinterest Challenge Day! It seems like I've been waiting for this day all year when really it was only a couple of months ago that I completed the last challenge. You can see it here. First and foremost, let me thank the lovely ladies that put this together, Kate from Centsational Girl, Michelle of Ten June, Katie of Bower Power, and Sherry from Younghouselove.
