3rd Times a Charm!!

Sorry it's been awhile folks! But I have some glorious news! Keegan and I bought our first house! Our offer was accepted tonight and we close on it September 30. I was hoping we could close on my birthday (September 25) but the seller can't get into her new house until the 30th. We are so so excited and I can't wait to get in there and start decorating!

It was built in the 1950s and has a lot of character. It is a red brick ranch, 2 bedroom, 2 bath. We were hoping for a 3 bedroom but we couldn't go wrong for the price and the neighborhood. It has some arched doorways, which I have always wanted. It needs some updating, but nothing we can't handle. New flooring and paint mainly. We believe there are some lovely hardwoods under the cobalt blue and peach carpeting! Oh, and did I mention it has a huge backyard complete with a covered deck!?

Get ready for lots of before and after pictures in the coming months! Above is a sneak peek!


  1. I cannot believe I had to read about your new house via your blog!!
