It has been a minute or two since my last blog post. I know I always say this, but it really has been a crazy couple of months! I’m figuring out that once you have a child, your life slides into the fast lane & it doesn’t seem like you ever get to slide back over. Honestly, I’m good with that! Boredom does not suit me well.
My mom asked me last weekend, “Does Kyle think I’m crazy?”
“Uh… yeah.” I said with no hesitation.
“Ha! Ok!” She laughed.
The truth is, most people would think she’s crazy. The ideas she gets into her head are pretty intense & the general population wouldn’t be able to pull them off. Somehow, she makes it work!
Every so often, while one of the kiddos has an activity, she comes over to my house to help finish up little projects. A few weeks ago, she brought over some planters and decided that our front door and the trim needed to be painted white to try and spruce up the outside of our place. At this point, the inside of our house was beautiful, but the outside did NOT match. Like, at all.
Kyle and I had been trying to find siding that matched ours in order to replace a few spots that had rotted out. Of course, the siding we needed is no long manufactured & it made me sick to my stomach to think about having to redo all the siding, when only the bottom row was in bad condition.
So, while my mom was painting the front door she decided that we could totally pull off a cheaper makeover and do it in one weekend. The next morning, we picked out paint colors and all my siblings came over to get to work! The weather was perfect & we got it done!
Since the inside & the outside is almost 100% finished, (and it’s as clean as it’s been in… forever) I figured it was the perfect time for a house tour blog!
Our closet is obviously not finished. There is still a sprinkler system in the corner so we put together a temporary closet until it’s done.
Thanks for touring our place! We are so proud of it & extremely thankful to both of our families for all of their help. There’s no way we could have done this without you!
