Recently, I’ve been posting a lot about all the stuff going on in our life. Not much of it has really been house related though. I promise I’ve been busy with house related stuff and today, I have a surprise. Its this:
Now, calm down, I didn’t go out house hunting and buy a new house without sharing any of the hunting details. This isn’t my house but it is a house I am pretty darn excited about…so excited that it gets its own blog post (I’m so excited…and I just can’t hide it). This house belongs to these folks (you may have seen them around here a time or two):
It is great for them because they get a new (much larger home) for their family (and stuff) but the best part is that it is right around the corner from us (3.5 minutes walking to be exact…yep, we clocked it!). If you could see me (and/or Mathlete) right now, you’d be witnessing a bunch of squee mixed with a whole lot this is totally the best day ever!
What does this mean for you (I know…that is what you really care about! ;)) It means twice the house fun! I’ve actually been neglecting a bunch of my own house projects to help with the projects they are planning for their new house (and loving every minute of it too!). Because she
doesn’t want to hear me complain all the time loves me so much, she has agreed to let me share all the dirty details of her house decorating along with my own. I might even squeeze a guest post or two out of her.
Paint has been dominating the decorating conversation so far. In fact, the first thing they did after closing was paint a bunch of swatches on the walls around the house so they could say yay/nay to the colors they’ve been eyeing over the past few weeks.
Painting will begin in earnest on Saturday and the “professionals” came to tackle the hard stuff (i.e. two-story rooms and ceilings) on Monday.
More to come!
