Instead of babies, rugs

The babies are here!

My sister in law was induced yesterday (was supposed to be at 8am, told her not to come till the afternoon) So by the time I was leaving work at 8pm, things were starting to get interesting. Unfortuantly, I couldn’t be there, had to be home with Andrew who had school today. I’m pretty sure I harrassed everyone that was at the hospital, but I didn’t care. I was seriously having issues not being at the hospital.

Instead of freaking out being bored, I decided to rearrange some furniture haha. I mean, what else is a girl gonna do?


Well, about a week and a half ago I decided to bit the bullet, and buy a rug for the dining room.

Rugs are DAMN expensive! So I have been shopping around, just waiting and waiting. Finally, RUGSUSA had an 80% off this rug, and I jumped to it!

I have been watching the tracking for the past few days. It is a $450 rug, and I got it for $180. SCORE!!!

I even got it into the dining room, and unrolled, and the table on top all by myself. (ok. I was impressed by that haha)

What do you guys think? Ok. Baby news to come tomorrow! (I hope the suspense won’t kill you haha)

Question for you:

Who is the decorator in your family?

What is your least favorite chore in your house?

-I hate cleaning the bathrooms, especially with a boy haha

Less than $50 at Target? no way

I think I may have a small problem with


(ok not a problem, just a few things to buy)

After my “issue” at my house a few weeks ago (where someone broke in) I thought it was time to buy some new curtains for the living room and dining!

A few weeks after I moved in
A few weeks after I moved in

(it only took me 2 years…)

Luckily, I am always in Target……


(I mean who can leave there under 50 bucks!??!?! But the curtains were not that bad AT ALL!)

SO they had the style but not the length, so I ordered them online with Andrew’s new school pants and shorts And I love how they turned out!


Hopefully this will keep away the peeping toms 🙂

Later I will show you the ones in the living room, they are light tan and just not that exciting. (yup I get excited about curtains, OH WELL!) I also want to paint the chandelier. All in good time

Question for you:

What is your favorite section to hit up at Target?

-I always go by the shoes, for Andrew and for me!

What house project(s) are you working on right now?

– I have another outdoor project coming up! Shouldn’t take more than a day or two 🙂

Its a Brick Housssee

Does anyone remember that song by the commodores? 


My son and I just danced to this song from Youtube haha

Anyway, here is my brick house!


On the day that I closed, family and friends came over to see the place!

We celebrated with some champagne and grape juice for my lil kiddo

My younger brother, his gf, with me and my son

Me and my mom after EVERYONE cleared out

So a little tour of the house(maybe ill do a video tour later!)

When you first walk in the door it is the living room

And to the right is the dining room

(that table isnt there anymore, it was just for the visitors to put their things on while touring the house!)

Then continue past the table, and you enter the kitchen. (which as we speak is completely torn apart)

crazy monkey

If you start back in the living room you can go through the door way on the left, it is the third bedroom.

But we will be using it as a family room (sorry thats probably complicated haha)

we call it the green room, because the carpet is nice, but not the best color……………

Then we go upstairs and to my room!

Andrew’s room is to the left….hes obviously excited hahaha

And then there is a full size bath upstairs

So that covers the house. Unfortuantly I dont have a picture of the back yard w/ a two car garage, or the basement.

Im not sure why. And these pictures are REALLY boring since there isnt any furniture.

There are MULTIPLE projects going on:

1.) Everything in the kitchen was taken out. Im painting the cabinets.

My brother and dad are redrywalling (the previous owner’s son did a HORRIBLE job)

2.) Full bathroom: shelves w/ new contact paper (FINISHED). New shower rod and curtain+ towels etc (FINISHED). Doing a beach theme in there w/ shelves and a little paint

3.) Painting my son’s room blue. (I am on the FOURTH COLOR! blue paint you are the death of me haha) Im painting my room later

4.) New fans in the “green room”, Andrews room, and my room

5.) Removing ivy and old brush in the front and the back of the house

6.) Spray painting living room coffee table : FINISHED! (yep I can say this one is finished haha post to come later)


And obviously there are many other things I want to do to the house, but I dont need everything finished before we move in. Which is set for the end of May, but well see how the boys do on the kitchen haha

Question for you:

Have you ever accomplished (or attempted) a large house project? How did it go?
