rental kitchen

Aug 6, 2016

We haven't closed on our house yet so in the mean time we are working on one of Liam's rentals. He has been prepping this house since the winter and it has taken so long! We are still not done and I will be heading over there tomorrow to finish painting the bedrooms. Does anyone want to come paint for us? With that said, we did have a friend of ours come by and help me paint, but we are not experts.

I took this before and after picture of the kitchen. Painting things white has made such a difference on how clean it looks. It has not been lived in for a few months and it is coming out really well. We are moving right along with the process and it's time to try and enjoy it instead of stressing about the laundry list.

In the meantime, I am lounging on my couch watching the men's gymnastics Olympics and women's beach volleyball. It has been long awaited and I love watching the games and cheering on USA!

first home

Aug 3, 2016

After passively searching for a new home this year, I finally found the perfect one for me. It was only a few weeks ago that I searched the Realtor app for houses in my area and I stumbled upon this one. The little blue dot showing it was newly uploaded to the site, as I scrolled through it I knew it was the one.

In four days, we walked through the house with the sellers agent, I found an agent to walk me through again, put in an offer, wait and wait, countered back and forth. It all began on a Monday night and by Thursday afternoon, they had accepted our bid. I AM GOING TO BE A HOMEOWNER. The shocking words have not hit home yet, but I could not be more excited for this next chapter in my life.

We close August 31st.
I am hoping sooner so we can begin painting the living room, dining room, and hallway. Liam does not want to do this because he thinks it's fine but before we move in, we might as well paint it the color we want (okay, maybe I want).
My Pinterest board has been a nonstop flow of house renovations, styling tips, how-to's, and home home home. I am thrilled.

As we get closer to our closing date, we will be renovating one of Liam's rental properties and I will attempt to take progress pictures. We dream of being Chip and Joanna Gaines one day (ha). Follow along my Pinterest board to see what we're thinking!
