Work Work Work...

Enduring To The End... Still...


Blah! I feel like these projects are never going to be done!!! Although there is light at the end of the tunnel it is still a daunting task. I know that everything will look wonderful when we are done... it is just so draining.

Here is some of my progress for the day...

Spackled holes and imperfections in the walls.



Stripped paint off of trim and hand sanded



Took down ugly flower border!!!



I did however end the day in a high note. Ryan and I, along with our good friend Amanda, went to a Labor Day party held by a couple in our ward. I really enjoyed carrying on conversation with the other ladies in the ward. They are so sweet and it is always fun when I get to socialize.

After the party we came back to the house and kicked off the Gossip Girl season with our own little party.

Like I said we ended in a high note... hours of labor and productivity capped off with socializing, friends, good food and quality time with my friend Amanda and our favorite show... could life be any better?! I didnt think so. lol.

As for me right now... Ryan is on mids so he is off at work saving the universe while I get ready for bed and try to get a good nights rest...

Tomorrow I will be busy busy busy. I need to finish sanding the trim, fill in a few more holes and prime these wretched walls. I will have some pictures once the paint is on the walls I will post some pictures... I also have an awesome surprise for you guys!! YAY!!!

By the way... did I mention we bought these?! Finally we dont have to beg the neighbors to use theirs or use our tub... Woolite became a good friend of mine.



Dont be scared of the creepy basement...that too is planning on getting face lift... well I guess in this case it is getting a face since all it is right now is cinder block walls, exposed pipes and concrete floors.

Cool! I like how your washer and dryer sit on top of each other. And, whew! Floral wallpaper borders should be outlawed. Good riddance! I can't wait to see the 'After' pictures. I love this kind of stuff.

You're doing such an awesome job stripping everything & sanding. I can't wait to see it after it's been primed and painted. So excited for you!

Wow, what a lot of work! It's definitely motivating when it's your own home though huh? We can definitely relate to the never-ending projects. You'll get there eventually! I'm sure it will look great when you do.

Yay! Everything is looking so nice in your house! I can't wait to buy a house and do fun stuff to it and make it look nice too!! Unfortunately, we won't have you guys around to help us.
