Hello! And good Morning :)

I am pleased to announce that Ryan, Tayler, and Michael will be working on our house starting today after lunch!

The outside of the house is 3/4 of the way done. We need to get some paint and do some touching up around the windows, chimney, and a few other places. I will probably be making daily evening trips to the house to see what all they are getting done! Therefore, I will probably ask Ryan questions that make him cringe but...I can't help it. I'm excited to get into our new home!!!!

I love him and all the hard work he is going to put into this house the next week or two.

Sneak Peek

I have a small sneak peak for you. I should have posted this last week but I couldn't find my camera computer adapter thingy. FOUND IT! And here you go.

I will be posting somemore new and exciting images of the house soon! Very Very sooooon. The outside is coming along very nicely, don't you think?

And this is just a small foot note but I have to do some complaining. I used the weed eater for my first time on Sunday and it kicked my rear!!!! My right arm is killing me! I don't ever want to use the damn thing again but..I know I will probably have to so, wish me luck on my future weedeating!

The Kitchen..

All we have been doing at the house is stripping cabinets! 4 layers of paint is starting to kick my butt!

But, I know all the hard work will pay day. I think we are going to paint the cabinets an off white, with dark wood floors, and not sure on the other details.

Our kitchen won't look anything like this but looking at it gives me inspiration.

Isn't it gorgeous?!

Seriously loving...

All of these items from Anthropologie!

And you may think I am weird or obsessed with yellow but I am really likin' this wallpaper.

I am really dreaming now but these pieces of furniture are amazing! (unfortunely I can't afford either of them)

They are kind of small...sorry!

Before and After

So I have a little something to show you...our shed, which is no more.

Before...this is the rickety old shed that was barely standing beside our house...

After...A HUGE thanks goes out to a few guys that work for my Gramps. They came out, fought the nats, bees, and mosquitos and took apart and hauled off our shed!

Stay tuned. More before, after, and during coming soon.
