Come see our house!

Just a fun video we put together while getting our home inspection (Summer 2011). None of the decor is ours; it's all the previous owner's. We have made tons of updates since we moved in. I can't wait to share them on this blog!

P.S.- I miss my long hair!!

I am in Heaven!

That's how I feel when shopping at Lowes and Target. Have I ever mentioned that Lowes and Target are my favorite stores? Seriously they are. I can spend hours in both of them and I did just that tonight... A little over 2hrs actually at Lowes. I like to walk down every aisle, including the garden department; It's how I get a lot of my ideas for projects. But anyways, we went a little overboard there tonight. The main reason we went there was to pick up some primer for our cabinets... What we left with was primer, paint, painters tape, rollers, brushes, a bathroom vent fan with a light, the duct work for the vent, possible tile flooring for our bathroom, and a couple misc. items. My first project is to paint our kitchen and bathroom cabinets. They are black right now and I hate them! I've decided to paint them a crisp white to give a feeling of light and openness. The black is just... well black and dark. I can't wait to get started. I will post updates and how to's as I go, including the installation of our bathroom vent fan (that should be interesting lol).
