{SOLD!!!!}

Oh. My. God!!! We sold our house last night! I seriously can't believe it...somebody pinch me!! The first offer we received was really low, so the hubs and I weren't feeling optimistic that it would work out, but we countered back and forth a few times and they accepted our final counter offer! What a huge relief. Looks like we hopefully won't have to make any double mortgage payments. I don't usually get all cheesy on here when it comes to my religious beliefs, but I feel like God's hand has very much been in this whole process. From finding the perfect house for our family that we could actually afford, to selling our current house so quickly in a market where houses sit for months or even a year before they sell. Thank you God is all I have to say!

I took the day off of work yesterday to paint in the new house. I have to say that it was such a great feeling to be fixing it up and making it our own. And to have a day all to myself was so nice. But man am I sore today! We are also having a half wall installed in the front room where there used to be a railing. It was very shaky and not up to code so the wall will be much safer for the boys. Here are a few pics...

There will be wooden trim along the top of the wall that I'll paint white (and baseboard too of course)


Ben's room...


Before of the built-in in Ben's room...


And now! Just need to paint the shelves...


I can't wait to put some cute owls in there! I also think this from Urban Outfitters would be a great accessory. It is supposed to hold jewelry but I think it looks great on its own...

And I'm LOVING this rug for Landon's room (also from UO)


I swear I could spend sooo much money right now on new stuff for the house!

That is all. :)

Congrats on selling your house. That's gotta be such a weight lifted. I'm digging the colors in your house. Can't wait to see more of what you are doing. There is no better feeling than making a house "your home".
