As you know, we moved into our new house last month. We have been working like crazy to make it our own. So far we have pulled up carpet, staples, tack board, peel-n-stick tiles, removed glue, and are now peeling off paint. (Previous owners paint job gone bad!)
Our project this month is to demo the kitchen, paint it, and then install our new kitchen cabinets, followed by new floor in the kitchen and the hallways.
Seriously, by the time we are done, you will think this place is Flooring America!
Can you believe the previous owners had the beautiful hardwood floors covered with filthy white carpet? We are thrilled that it is all gone!!
So, I hope you will stick around and continue to follow us on this crazy adventure as we take our 1973 house and update it and turn it into our family dream home.

Over the last few weeks, A LOT of exciting things have been happening.
We are moving!
Yes, we are moving into the house that we have been driving by and staring at on the internet constantly.
The Signs were all there that this house was meant to be ours!
We couldn’t be more excited!
As we get ready to move, my wife has been busy (along with my mother-in-law) on how to decorate our new home. Anne has plans to rip up carpet, paint walls, and transform the basement. Once that is all done and we have the perfect family room built in our basement, Anne wants to hang the Photos on Canvas that she has of the kids on the wall in addition to a few of our wedding pictures. The latest canvas print she has added to our collection is one of our little Tatertot when he was 7 months old. It is a photo that Anne took at the park where we were married on our 1st Wedding Anniversary. It is a photo that we both love! Seeing that big smile on his face that day as he sat in the grass playing with the leaves always makes us both smile too!
Ever since we got our first canvas print from Easy Canvas Prints, Anne has been hooked on the idea of using them in the family room. I have to say that I am happy with the quality of the canvas prints and love that running the photos onto the canvas didn’t distort the picture at all!
I cannot wait until we get settled into our new house, get the family room in our basement completed and finally have a space to hang these amazing pictures of our children.
Right now we have a house and once we are in and settled, it will finally be our home!
