Looking back...

It's practically been a century or so since I've updated this thing, but life just won't slow down. I mean, is it really almost SEPTEMBER? Wasn't yesterday New Years? Although the year is literally flying by, I am soo ready for the next couple of months!

This summer has been terrible weather-wise here in GA! I think it rained two and a half months out of the three summer months, no joke! And not to mention we had a few days with highs in the upper 60's lower 70's? That just doesn't happen in the south during the summer.... especially not AUGUST! Crazy, crazy! But none the less, we have had a jam packed summer, and made the best out of all the sogginess.

So many things I could post about, but per the usual, I am running short on time, so I figured I would just do a quick post. This past June we hit two years in our house, can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday we were sitting at the closing table praying our little hearts out for a smooth closing! We have accomplished so much in two years, and I am so proud of how far our house has come.

But, as we all know, I am literally terrible at before and after pictures. I always forget the dang before picture, then I snap a quick after picture on my phone post it to Instagram, and wah-la, I am done. I've gotta stop that lol -- I have pledged to myself to A. keep up this blog more, and B. start taking better quality pictures with my camera I just "HAD TO HAVE".

So with all that being said, this morning I looked through my Facebook album of our house before we closed on it -- I just cannot believe how much a can of paint, and some DIY'ing can change a house! Case in point.. Our living room.

Even though the stripes may have almost been the end of our relationship and the start of world war three, still to this day, we BOTH love them more than anything! The impact they have on the entire space is amazing -- All for the cost of a gallon of paint and a few hours of bickering ;)

I plan to do a full post on the entire living room with sources, and how we painted perfect stripes, but for now, I hope this will hold you over!
