The House: Front Room

Frontroom

Well, we had our first showing on Monday.  On one hand we were SUPER excited because we had been feeling down that there was nothing over the weekend. On the other hand, we were exhausted from trying to get some things done that needed to be done to make the house look more finished. Do you know what’s so weird?  Not hearing any kind of feedback.  It is so strange running around your house getting it ready for someone to come see for 30 minutes and not know what they thought about it.  Fortunately our realtor called the other realtor […]

Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA for the last month.  It has been crazy!  I have wanted to blog so badly but I haven’t had the time.  Last month we decided to put our house one the market.  An awesome plan, except we had SO much work to do on the house before we could list it.  It has felt like every spare moment has been spent scouring Craigslist, making Home Depot and Lowes runs, and doing work on the house.  We have been eating simple meals, staying up too late and physically draining ourselves to get the house […]

Here is a shot of the table.  We served brunch. Pinterest was our friend with this shower! For the backdrop my husband designed a mock newspaper.  We used a picture of […]
