|When I first bought the house|
|Since then we've painted it, removed bushes, and added porch furniture.|
I started looking at houses in February of 2009. Between February and August I looked at over 60 houses, put an offer on 7, and ended up with the best one. The first time I saw my house online, I called my realtor immediately and told her I wanted to see it mainly because I loved the street it was on. We went to see it the next day.

|My kitchen remodel might be my favorite -- all for $1200!!|
|My bedroom before - carpet and old drapes|
|Now -- although I need to get a better photo of it during the day. It's not as dark as it seems.|
|The mudroom before|
|This is probably the most drastic change. I love the stripes!|
|My living room before - I loved the built in bookshelf, but it didn't get to stay.|
|New floors, lots of paint, and all new insulation.|
|The office before - that green chair came with the house|
|That desk is one of my favorite garage sale finds ever!|
P.S. Today is also my parent's wedding anniversary. 35 years. They are an incredible inspiration of love and faithfulness. God has blessed me beyond measure with the 2 of them.

|And this is what they look like now. :)|
