Coming up for air...

Hey everyone! Sorry for majorly neglecting my beloved blog friends lately...this move has kicked my booty! Well we are officially out of our old place and FULLY into our new place. We are loving life in this new house and when its semi presentable I'll take pics to show you all! Just to give you all a mental picture of what we left....1970's retro ranch house....avocado green bathrooms....harvest gold tile....fake looking wood formica....WHITE CARPET (in a rental....were they smoking crack?)....gross looking gold pebbled glass window next to the front door (looks like it came out of a church)....and LOTS more. This house was cozy but majorly needed an update and I wasn't gonna spend my hard earned cash doing it!
Fast forward to our current place.....
Beautiful high quality laminate floors throughout the whole main floor....stainless steel appliances....granite countertops....goose neck faucet and brand new DEEP stainless steel sink.....really pretty textured "dirt colored" carpet (the owners lived here with their two children before we moved in and they definitely thought ahead when they installed the carpet)....brand new vinyl windows/furnace/hot water heater and lots of other cool money saving gadgets! This house is like stepping out of the past and into the present! I love its so full of light and open and airy! There are a couple rooms that I'm stumped about the layout and I have a lot of painting to do. Lets just say they LOOOOOOOOVE them some Terra Cotta colored paint! Eww. Hopefully I can get all the painting done (with help of course) before the little lady comes...but who knows! Maybe all the painting will make her head out a little early which I would be TOTALLY fine with! lol
I hope you all are well and didn't think I had dropped off the face of the earth. I will be back to my crafty self sometime soon hopefully and will do my best to dazzle you all! :)
