Well, sort of. I mean, we moved houses but not far! In a sort of last minute decision we decided to move closer to the boys’ high school going from a 20 minute commute each way to within walking distance! We also decided to renovate a bit before we officially moved in (which we’re doing this week).
We pulled up ALL the flooring which was carpet and tile, are in the process of installing new flooring, painting replacing outlets/outlet covers, doorknobs, will be painting the kitchen cabinets, getting new countertops and installing a backsplash!
The boys are excited to “decorate” their new rooms so I’ll be sure to share what we decide to do with them. For now, I’m trying not to be too picky at how they paint.
They’ve actually been an AWESOME help with everything. They ripped up and carried out all the carpet, pulled off baseboards and tack boards and helped me unload over 3,000 pounds of flooring.
Kind of crazy for a bit of a last minute decision but hey, what’s life without a little excitement right?! Just wanted to let you know where we’ve been the past week. Can’t wait to share it all and get into some fun October projects!
