Living Room Progress

I’ve said this a couple times, but the biggest reason Chase and I took the leap on our house was for the neighborhood. We loved the area and wanted so badly to live in it, but we couldn’t afford a ready to move in house. Renovation never scared us, in fact it was one of the things on our list. Ya know, that list that every potential homebuyer has. Some people have a pool or lots of closet space on theirs, we knew we wanted something that we could make our own. So when we saw our house on Realtor.com […]

Office/Craft Room Tour (And Office Pets)

When Chase and I were house hunting we knew we wanted at least 3 bedrooms. We really wanted a guest room, and needed an office. We already tried the office and guest room combo in our 2 bedroom condo and it never worked out.

We went with a white quartz that looks like marble. We learned […]

For those of you who follow me on Snapchat, I did a bunch of posts in the beginning of the month before we left for a week long vacation. While we were gone […]

This House is Almost A Home

I’m back again with another house update and let me tell you we have some serious progress! No more holes in the walls, floors, or ceilings. No more scary bugs hiding around every corner. (I’m looking at you, black widow infested spare bathroom.) While the outside of the house is something that will get done later in the year, the inside has come so far. It looks like we will be moving in NEXT MONTH. As we get closer Chase and I are slowly turning into giddy children on Christmas Eve. Sometimes I have to ask Chase to pinch me […]
