the new place.

So... they didn't accept our offer but they came REALLY close with their counter.  So we are accepting their counter, woo hoo!

My brain has completely skipped over the packing and has moved on to paint and decorating.  I've got some fun new challenges this time.  Including... removing wallpaper, painting over FAUX/SPONGE PAINTING in almost every room (ick), making a tiny master bath look a little bigger, and decorating a kitchen around light maple wood cabinets.

Want to see some "before" pictures?

The living room... AHH the paint.  Oh it kills me.  The floor isn't much better.  Gotta love home improvement projects (yeah, we actually do though).  The other side of this room is RED floral wall paper.  Good times.

Kitchen... I LOVE this kitchen.  So spacious!  The whole kitchen has a nice cream beadboard paneling on the walls... except behind the counters.  WHY would you do green sponge painting under the cabinets?  WHY?  So not sure what I'm going to do there yet.  Oh, and John told me I can get a new stove, sweet!

But all of the home improvement projects will be worth it because in a few short weeks I will be relaxing my pregnant butt on this deck...

or in this pool...

Bring on the boxes!!
