I don't have much to say except that I am in an exceptional mood. The weather is good. Work is good. Love is good. Life is good.

I hope all of you are having feeling the same.
I'm really liking these prints from The Love Shop

And it's Wednesday...meaning I only have 9 days till we leave for Fredericksburg! Yippee! It's the one time out of the year that Ryan and I dance the night away. All the siblings and kiddos are coming this year so it should be quite a good time :)

If you've never been to Oktoberfest in Fredericksburg, Texas, YOU HAVE TO GO AT SOME POINT IN YOUR LIFE. Oktoberfest is a few days filled with nice weather, good eats, beer, and lots of POLKA! (Not to mention it's family friendly) Fredericksburg is a small German town filled with awesome wineries, LOTS of B&B's, German Bakery's, and lots of cute shops.

Was this not the longest week ever????

I am so so happy that today is Friday and that Ryan and I have nothing pressing in our agenda for the weekend! All I plan to do is tackle the three issues of Texas Monthly that are sitting on my coffee table waiting to be read.

And the living room..

So I am going to give you a few pictures but I want you to know this room is not complete. (our heaters need to be installed, need curtains, and more stuff needs to be hung on the walls)



I hope all of you are having a great hump day! Live is good! Ryan is meeting Betty (the lady who bought our Byers house) to give her the keys. We are officially done with that place. It feels like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders.

Now, we can start thinking about new and exciting things...

What a wonderful morning


I woke up to the sounds of crickets, drank my coffee on the front porch, got ready, and made it to work before anyone else! Yippee :)

Before and After

So here we are. The Before and After's. There are still little things here and there that I would like to complete but for the most part, everything is done. (And just so you know, it feels reaaaallly good saying that)

So where to start?



This is what you saw when you walked in the back door.

Different angle..




And just a small recap, the below before's are what it looked like when we FIRST started. Due to the unlevel floors, we actually had to tear out this side of the house.As you can see here..

This is the guest room, bathroom, and master room.

Now we are going to walk to the right and go in the spare bedroom.











And I will continue the rest at another time. I don't feel that the master bedroom is quite ready! I really want to get some window treatments.

More of the living room coming tomorrow...please, stay tuned! And let me know what you think.

Well I forgot to take my camera home this past weekend so I didn't have the chance to take pictures of the finished product. There are little things here and there that I want to work on but for the most part we are moved in! The outside needs to be finished but we are going to let it cool off a bit more before we tackle that!
Here is certain section of our living room, more to come...

And please ignore the candle sitting in the chair..I've moved it. And Just in case you don't remember what the living room looked like ya go.

Your looking at the left corner of this picture. I'll be taking more pictures this week so you might be seeing these pictures again. :)

Hello my fellow people!! I have been one very busy lady! The weekend consisted of babysitting the twins and Audrey for 13 hours on Saturday and then moving all day Sunday! Worked on shirts ALL Monday and Tuesday and FINISHED! Now my focus is back on the house! Yippeee!!! Ryan has been working so hard trying to get the bathroom finished and all those other little things that have to be looked over before we move in....which guess what?


I hope this day goes by as fast as the last two have. I'm getting off at five, going to Byers to load up our bathroom and closet and then off to Charlie!!

Pictures coming soon :)
