Would you look at that!? We got the house! We closed on May 5th - Feliz Cinco de Mayo! The first few weeks we did NOTHING. John John was born March 26th - about a week late! If anyone has EVER been pregnant, you know how rough the last few weeks can be. Add another week onto that. I cried on my due date! Ha! That's beside the point though - since he was late, we still had a bitty baby when we closed on the house. We also had a LOT of work to do before we could move in. The trim and doors throughout the entire house were oak. We weren't cool with that. And the upstairs desperately needed new carpet. We decided the best route was to get all of our painting (trim and walls) done before we put in new carpet and before we moved in. Thankfully we had a sprayer. It took a lot less time but with a sprayer - prep is everything. It took us nearly a week to tape everything off (in our free time after work and with two babies to take care of). Anyway - we got the trim painted and most of the walls painted (aside from the corners which I STILL haven't done 4 months later).
We have been working our tails off trying to make this empty vacant house our home. Adding our touch to every room. We will get there little by little! Take a look at the Ross Lake tab at the top if you want check it out :)
