Upgrade the Tunes: CHECK!

As soon as I had published yesterday’s post, Walker and I sat down to exchange gifts for the holidays. Guess what I got…

… an Innovative Technology ITVS-750 Wooden Music Centre, complete with a turntable!  Yay!  We did some vinyl shopping today and have been listening to albums all day.  It sounds awesome and I am so excited to build my vinyl collection.  Right now I basically only own 3 Paul Simon albums. :)

So 1 resolution down, 4 to go!

1. ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE! – Ok, so I do this every year but it is so important! When Walker moved in we found a place to put everything and have ignored it since. But in the next few weeks we will be getting a detached garage space (YIPPEE FINALLY!) and can stash some of our stuff in the extra storage. Sounds like a good excuse to do some weeding out of the excess and give us some breathing room.

2. CREATE A NEW DUAL WORKSPACE – Currently both of our computers are sitting on a desk I originally bought for myself that I Frankenstein-ed to accommodate both of us. However, there is no room to move or work… just barely enough room to click. So we have started some beginning plans on creating a new dual workspace that will actually meet our needs.

3. UPGRADE THE TUNES – We have been talking about getting a record player for the living room because we both LOVE listening to music. Walker even has a mini record collection started so we have some great stuff to listen to when we actually take the plunge. We anticipate a little extra space once we get the garage space and new desk so we hope to make it work sooner rather than later.

4. KITCHEN LOVE – The living room and bedroom have been slowly transformed to merge our styles since Walker moved in. However, with the exception of an additional calendar and some art, the kitchen looks exactly the same. I think he and I need to put our heads together and see what we want to do with this room.

5. BATHROOM SOS – Other than towels, curtains, and a bathmat, I have yet to do anything with the bathroom. This is the year to start!

    Erika, It has been a loooong time! It looks like life has been treating you well. I am loving your blog! Also, I have been wanting a record player f-o-r-e-v-e-r especially, since we already have a vinyl collection. You may have just motivated me to finally get one. I look forward to following your blog (:

      Thanks Brhea!! I actually JUST posted on your facebook wall that I am a big fan of your blog too! So glad things are going so well for you guys! :)

      As for the record player, you will NOT be disappointed! I have had this thing on non-stop since I opened it. So nice to hear from you.
