Year In Review - My Projects in 2011

Last year I did a re-cap of all my home improvement projects from 2010.  It was such fun to look back and see what had been accomplished around the house.  This year, I thought I'd do it again!  So here we go...












I haven't posted this yet, but my mom just painted my bathroom last week.
It was an ugly dirty white before, but now its a pretty cool gray.  Thanks mom!

I started Smaller Sarah, a blog that follows my journey to lose 75 pounds in one year.
So far, I've lost 43 pounds and I've never felt better!

and finally...
Charlie's Craniofacial surgery.  Although this certainly doesn't fall in the category of "home improvement", it was definitely the biggest project and most memorable moment of my year.
As usual, you can follow Charlie's progress at Help Charlie Heal.

Thank you so much to all my readers for making 2011 a fantastic year.  Your emails, comments and engaged readership keep me going all year long.  Happy New Year's Eve and cheers to 2012 - it's going to be GREAT!

Wow, you certainly have accomplished a lot this year!! You should definitely be proud of yourself. Happy New Year!

Miranda said...

Sarah, you have much to be proud of. Thanks for all the inspiration and wisdom you provide. May you and your family have the best new year ever!


You are so inspiring! What a year you had. Makes me feel like I've accomplished nothing at all over the past year :)

Have a wonderful New Year! xoxo

Girl, I don't know how you do accomplish so much! Not only are your children well cared for, but you also manage to surround them with a lovely home. They will learn from example and grow up respecting, not only their surroundings, but others as well. Well done!

I love the look of your guest room, especially the suitcase stand...what a great idea!

You are so inspiring! Besides caring for the two kiddies, redoing practically your whole house is an amazing feat!

Have a wonderfully Happy New Year's Eve!

And you started running and boot camp and lost 45 pounds and, and, and.....I know that's not home improvement but....being at home with oneself improves everything! Congratulations for all the 2011 accomplishments! xoxo

What an amazing year! I think I might look at my year that way- some times you don't feel like you've acomplished anything until you look at it that way (on paper or screen!) Thanks for the inspiration and Happy New yEAR XXCorrina.

You're one incredibly inspiring lady! Much peace and happiness to you this upcoming year and always...

WOW Sarah that is incredible, well done you! Aren't you lucky to have a Mom/Mum who is such a painting legend - keep her on ;)

Happy New Year to you and just to let you know Endless Inspiration is back in business, pop by and have a look sometime :)

Best wishes Vanya

What a beautiful year and all our love and best wishes to darling Charlie. To think that you've created such a warm, inviting home in the midst of the mommyhood muddle is a real credit to your intelligence and strength.
Best of luck to you and yours in the year to come.
Cheers, Alcira
