Take a walk with me...

My eyelids are in a fierce battle w/my guilt over updating this blog right now...I think my eyelids are going to come away victorious! I am so stinkin' exhausted from all the long days and late nights spent trying to get our house ready to put on the market. Although this post should be rather lengthy, I'm going to shorten it up w/a few strategically placed photos.

all these tools and such have been in my dining room for about 2 months...whoo-hoo! ;)

a view from our bedroom door

my amazing husband hung the sheetrock, texturized the walls, sanded/stained/polyed the wood floor, installed 3 new windows, painted, etc.

part of the kitchen...the cabinets and beadboard are all white and the walls are an awesome green color called grasscloth

Office area before...yes, this is the only room I took before pix of...the after isn't finished yet

the entire 1st floor of our house was like this when we moved in...ugly white plaster walls w/even uglier dark blue trim

Office area 1/2 way finished

the front of the house after unloading a truck load of mulch w/Jean and "planting" those beautiful red flowers...ask Jean what they are cuz I don't have a clue

Isn't it so pretty!

the garage...Rich, Seth, Eric, Jeff & Dakota worked their tushes off painting on Saturday

my poor living room...this cluttered mess is driving me crazy!

So, we're really close to being finished and I couldn't be happier! We're scheduled to have an open house in 2 weeks...YIKES!

Last, but certainly not least, we have a new addition in our family.

Meet Bentley. He's a 2 1/2 yr old Cocker Spaniel.

Emma is in heaven!

Until next time...

Your home is beautiful. I love what you've done with it. That front porch is my favorite, it is so cute.
