Hey everyone! So after my last blog post, I’ve been feeling a LOT better. I’ve been making more videos and after a ton of people requested it, I finally got our new house tour video finished!
It is 21 minutes of me talking and showing the house. I TRIED to get it as short as possible but well, there’s a lot of house. I actually recorded for 45 minutes! I edit for you! LOL!
But I do want to thank everyone who reached out to me after my last blog post. If there is one thing that many SLers know about, it’s the depression struggle. You all are much loved and much appreciated by me. ♥
Soooo….January update? *laughs*
The truth is, I’ve had some writer’s block lately. I sit at the desk and I open this blog and I try to write and it’s like… hey, what’s YouTube doing?
Well, if I’m being honest, I’ve had a creative block altogether. My videos have not been great, mostly unboxings, which are not always THE most interesting. Although one of my videos this month DID almost get 1500 views!! That is pretty big for me. AND I’m almost up to 1000 subscribers!! I cannot even believe. I mean, seriously. I can’t. But I’m utterly thrilled!
So let’s see. What has been going on that I haven’t talked about in videos. Well, we got a new house! Abby had mentioned a few weeks ago that she needed a new room because she couldn’t decorate hers properly. And it was a weirdly shaped room, I’ll admit that. So I went on a house hunt [which I did a video about!] and then I utterly fell in love with a home that I saw. My Birdy actually gifted me the house as a late Christmas gift because, as she put it, “You blog for EVERYONE and you have EVERYTHING except your dream house!” She’s basically the best. ♥
I’ve spent the past week decorating it up and ugh. I love it so much. I do. I loved the crazy boho-ness of our last house. I really let myself go boho nuts in there. This house is a tiny bit more polished, but still with all those special touches that make it homey and cozy. I will be doing a house tour video once the girls have their rooms done a little more. I created custom sleeping areas for them in their rooms, but that’s about all I’m doing. And our bedroom is *just* about done, but I think I need a few more touches to make it just right.
I don’t know, I guess that’s pretty much it. It’s been a heck of a month for everyone, I think. Our offline lives hit us all a little harder than we’d like, but hopefully February will be better. And if it’s not… well hey. It’s a short month.
Well, we’re doing it again! We’re… switching houses!
I know, I know. It used to be something of a joke that I liked to change houses all the time. But in the past few years, we have really just stuck to whatever house we’re in. I’d say it’s mostly because I hate making the girls pick up their rooms too often since a LOT of care usually goes into putting their rooms together. And also, I don’t have quite as much free time like I used to, so once I get a house set up, I am happy to just enjoy it and not be fussing too much. But … well, we needed a change.
Okay, actually, we’re going back to our previous house. *laughs* We needed a little bit more space than our current house has, but all of the houses I have looked at recently are either too small, too large, don’t have enough rooms, or have way too many rooms. Or they are very cramped and we like a more open concept home. Our previous house really has everything we look for in a home. As much as I love the layout of our current house, we just needed something with a little extra space. So…back to the old house we go!
I’m actually quite happy because I loved that house a whole lot! It just felt so warm and inviting to me. Even before we had used it as our family home, I had put it out on my platform to blog in or just hang out in from time to time. I have modded the house to put up some walls downstairs [because it was a bit TOO open] and I just love it. I can’t wait to get it put down and “go home” again. 🙂
Plus! We have some big plans in the works! I can’t say what it is now, but I promise, by next week, I will tell you guys! We are very very excited, I can tell you that much!
Back to packing!
