This is why it has taken me this long to update my blog . . . I got a good 3 weeks of scrapbooking in before it was back to house stuff! My sister Christy came in town for a week and worked non-stop painting and helping me decorate. It was a crazy week - she brought her 1 1/2 year old but luckily Jay was at school all day so we could still get stuff done. The paint is hard to tell from the pictures since it was a mustard yellow to begin with. We went a little lighter and did a sponge foe paint over top so the walls look a little more textured. We painted 4 rooms, did lots of shopping, stayed up late, decorated, and had lots of fun! The house is definitely coming along though. I have a few more odds and ends to finish. I can't believe it is taking us this long to officially get moved in and settled.
This has been our other huge project . . . you'll just have to wait and see. I will definitely be showing before and after pictures. This huge pile of dirt is on our driveway right now. I bet the neighbors love us! And not to mention all the trash we have had from some of the furniture we have gotten. Parker tries to sneak outside every chance he gets to play in this dirt. And this stuff is messy!!
Well, it has been an adventure moving into our first home. Lots of work but it is all worth it. I think my walls would have stayed bare if it weren't for Christy. Thanks Christy for taking a week of your time to help me. You are awesome and the house looks amazing!!
