Why I've been M.I.A

Hiiii! I cannot believe that it has been almost a MONTH since I've posted. I hate neglecting the blog :( But, we have been busy, busy, busy getting our house ready for this:

Yep, as of one week ago, our house is officially on the market! Yay! This is a time that we have been looking forward to for so long, and it's a little surreal that we are finally doing it.

Over the past month, Lee and I have been busting our butts to get our house in perfect shape for selling. As you probably know, I'm so type A that the house had to be in "show mode" before I wanted to list it. And, I'm so happy to say that it is (at least it I think so :) )

Amongst other little things, we have: installed new kitchen cabinet doors, cleaned out the garage, did some looong overdue decorating (those damn built ins!), had the tub and bathroom sink re-glazed, power washed the house, built a step for the 2 foot drop out of our french doors, and decluttered, decluttered, decluttered!

We seriously worked every weekend and every single evening after work. We were SO exhausted, every day. I know that we did so much, but at the same time, I look around and think, Okay, what did we really do that took so long? Haha :) It's so weird to not have anything to do after work this week! It's so nice :)

So of course, after all of that hard work, I'm going to show you all what the house looks like now. I wish I had before pictures of the rooms to show you (um, and me) everything that we did.

Cooper's Room
Half Bath
Living Room (dogs may or may not come with the house depending on their behavior ;) )
In all their glory
Breakfast nook
Main Bath
Guest Room
Whew! Now we just have to keep it clean :)

It looks great!! Keeping a house clean with two dogs was bad enough for us, I can't imagine now with a baby too! Good luck, hope it goes fast!

Your house looks incredible! And I love the paint colors. Good luck with the sale!

Three things: 1) Your house looks awesome! Best of luck selling it! 2) I love the color of your bedroom and must know what it is because that is pretty much the exact color I want my bedroom. 3) I also love Cooper's bedroom furniture and would like to know what it is and where you got that too please and thank you. Have a good night :)

Your house looks so great!!! I bet it sells in no time- it's move-in ready and you staged it really well! Good luck w/ the sale AND with the fun house hunt- that's exciting. I look at homes online all of the time even though we're not ready to move yet, ha!

Everything looks great!! What's funny is that we just put our house up for sale too! I did the same thing by getting the house "show ready" and now I'm not sure if I want to leave! Ha! Good luck!!
