Drumroll.....

Okay! So I have been meaning to do this last week, but today I HAD to do it for my darling friend and her hubby, our contractor (Thanks, Cokers!) And so, without further ado....

A LITTLE PEAK AT OUR NEW OLD HOUSE!
BEFORE: Random beams that whack you in the head on the way to the door....
AFTER: Wide Open-ness Entryway!!! Whoohoo!
BEFORE: More beam-i-ness in the "Dining Room"...
AFTER: My new "Office/ Mommy Lounge-y" Space!
BEFORE: Living Room view....
AFTER: God Bless, Clivesden Leather and God Bless, Alyshia for also putting in on our fireplace grout!!! Voila!
BEFORE: Kitchen paint color from hell and wacky pantry...
AFTER: Crisp. Clean. Just the way I like it! Ahhhh....

BEFORE: Good-bye tile that was out to get me...

AFTER: Hello, I-Can-Mop-You -Clean-In-Two-Seconds-Flat floors! See my new pantry?? LOVE IT!BEFORE: Waiting for new appliances...

AFTER: TaDa!

BEFORE: No more laminate counter tops and back splash...AFTER: Loving the new ones and my bead board back splash.... (Decorating) Works in progess:

The Kids Bath:

Our Bathroom:


So! I need to take a minute to thank ALL of the people who made our little Dream Home possible: Jason's Mom and My Mom- We couldn't have done any of this without you! Marie and Royce Coker- Also, couldn't have done any of this without you! Alyshia and Stephanie- For being as House Crazy as I am- from paint colors to counter tops, you gave the best advice! Heather- For watching my "chid-wren" for me for practically two days straight, so I could unpack and not kill anyone! LOVE. YOU. Fan Target and Sarah- For being the best sisters EVER and helping me do everything from paint and to watch my kids. I owe you both. Big. Time. My Dad- Who else on the planet would drive back and forth from Frisco to C-Town 8 times in one day? Uh, yea, no one. Best Dad. Ever. The Speers Family, for letting us break out lease, Christina Lancaster, for watching over our house while we were gone, the sweet cashier at Lowes who we came to know from visiting her about 3 times a day...

Jas and I feel so grateful- for our friends, for our family and for the roof over our head.

We are SO very blessed.

I KNOW!- and she's going to advise me on our baths, next.

You are so welcome- it all looks just great! We are so proud of your decorating and design skills and Royce did a wonderful job on the construction.

And yes, Daddy is the best dad ever and so are the Fans, too.

Thanks for the love Anne! What's your hourly rate when we run into a homeowner that wants to do something atrocious? :)
