What I'm trying to say, in a kind of dorky way is that we just bought this house. It's kind of a fixer-upper so stay tuned for more details and lots of before and after pictures. As my husband put it- now you get to live one of your shows! (he's referring to my HGTV watching habit:)
We closed on Friday and then took the kids over that evening to surprise them which was pretty fun. Anyway, we've already spent one day tearing off wallpaper and sanding wood paneling and that's just the tip of the iceburg. There's LOTS of work to do and it will probably be at least a few weeks until we are actually moved in. Every single wall and bit of woodwork in the house has to be painted, and almost all of the flooring has to be replaced or redone. It's going to be fun to document the transformation here and I'll probably be asking you for your opinion too.
Anyway, that's my big news of the day!
