Our New House!

I've been slacking big-time in blogging lately! Sorry! I'm sure not too many of you even noticed! ;-)

Anyways, the following is why I have been such a slacker! I literally work on the house every chance I get. In the last week or two, I've tried my hardest only to do it while Cyd is sleeping. I'm making progress for sure, but I've still got a long way to go! I know that all the hard-work is going to be worth it, but man, I didn't know I could have so many 'melt-downs,' then the next-day just have this renewed sense of energy! Maybe it's that I only have 5 MORE WEEKS left to get it done! Ahh!

So, here's the tour.

Picture the shutters & door, black. That's next year summer project.

This is all the previous owners furniture... Gasp, but we forgot to take pictures of it empty! Picture all this dark wood, white! That's what I've been slaving over! Boy, I didn't know what a process this was going to be! What in the world did I get myself into!?

This is the formal living & dining rooms. If you know us, we're not formal, so this is our living room and Cyd's play room.

Master bedroom

We've updated appliances with stainless... It also has an eat-in kitchen, hence the reason the formal dining room is a play room! ;-)

Master bath. Pretty crappy pictures of it... Notice those shell sinks! ;-) haha Some things you just have to live with for awhile!

Matt took these pictures awhile back and we just never got around to taking any better ones... I'll make sure I take some good 'after' pics!
We're loving life and the new house already feels like 'home!' Aside from no decorations b/c of all the painting going on! But, home, nonetheless! We feel so incredibly blessed!
Hope you're having a great week!
