Coming to an End

Well it's been a fun time playing house at 10329 Sierra West. Another milestone has come into our lives. No longer are we first time home buyers but now first time sellers. The papers have been signed, and our house is official on the market! There will be a lock box on the house tomorrow and it can start being shown. The website should contain the pictures and write up on the house no later than Thursday! I went through the house today snapping pictures and reminiscing in every room. It is amazing all the projects we have endured in 2 years and 2 months. This house has been good to us, and we have enjoyed making it our home! It was pretty tough handing over the keys to the Realtor today. I pretty much teared up right in front of her! This whole move has been weighing on me recently. June is a long time away, and these weekend visit from Jared are too quick. Selling a house alone is tough! I have mixed emotions about when I want it to sell! I would love for the people who see our house to absolutely fall in love with it because I did! That would be comforting to know that we made good choices in our first home, our designs, and upgrades! But I don't want it to sell too soon because then my home is no longer! Either way we have the most gracious friends to offer up their spare bedrooms. Then I will be the one commuting on the weekends! HA! Our Realtor has nothing but compliments about our house (i know this is part of her job) , but it is still nice to hear! Hopefully Browning won't mind strangers into his home! He'll probably just greet them with a ball hoping for a strong arm and friend! Enjoy the pictures!

The ole yellow room! So cute now!

Probably the most unchanged room of all!
Oh the Aggie office!

One of my most favorite remodels and cheapest!

Guest Room Makeover!

For 2 years...yes the entire time we have lived here...I've been avoiding one of our guest rooms. The idea was to have a creamy country yellow....well that didn't exactly happen. It was a bright bright yellow that I never really warmed up to. Since the house is going to go on the market, I felt that other potential buyers would feel the same way. So back to Khaki it goes! It actually looks pretty good against the white wicker furniture which surprises me!! Maybe it's the bedding?!?! What I great buy I found on!!! I bought it on a whim and LOVE it! Plus some new art work which fits in more with the decor around the house! One more project crossed off from the list! YEAH! Enjoy!

Love some RED!!
New pictures!

Bathroom Makeover 101

WOW do I have an amazing husband!! He's so talented! We have been wanting to update our guest bathroom since we moved into this house 2 years ago! Well the only thing we did was buy new towel holders and towels! Some things really come together when you know you have to sell your house! These last little details, that we always wanted to do, are now finished! For about $45.00 we gave our guest bath a nice update! Jared made all the cuts and sprayed the wood and the old fixture! Yes that was the old GOLD fixture!!! Who knew it would have been that big of a change!! We are so happy with the final product! Oh and we bought a new shower curtain!! LOVE IT!!!

New Framed Mirror and "Improved" lighting!!

Baylor Homecoming

This weekend has been all Baylor! You would think we both graduated from Baylor! Jared is so upset with A&M now...i think he was happy to support another school! Especially one that doesn't employee his wife any more!! HAHA! Last night we met up with our friends from church for dinner and then went to the bonfire! Woke up early...yes early on my one Saturday to not have go to the parade. We grabbed a nutritious breakfast of kolaches and donuts and went to the parade with Browning in tow! He was so excited and sporting a Baylor t-shirt! Jared wore yellow and I was in green! Like I would think we were Baylor grads! The parade was good, and then onto our last minute errands before the game! I made a 7 layer dip that was quite yummy and perfect for football tailgates! We went to our friends tailgate and then onto the game! Here is where we start to go down hill. With only like 2 minutes into the first quarter they delay the game due to weather! Well about an hour later the RAIN comes! It was a freakin monsoon! With everyone else trying to get under the stadium... Jared and I head for the field to get under the part where the football players run out! Yes we stormed the Baylor football field like crazed fans!! We get under this pavillion that is reserved for the "snooty" Baylor alum. We stay there for about 30 minutes than head back to our seats! We are now SOAKED and FREEZING! Guess what else happened...?!?! A cold front comes in...of course it does!! So we are WET and Cold...finally the game starts again..2.5 hours later! Right before half time it starts to rain this time I calling it quits!! I had had enough...seeing how I didn't even go to Baylor in the first place! So now we are home...dry and in our lazy weekend clothes watching the school we actually both went to play KU! So far they are up, hopefully it will stay that way! Enjoy the pictures!

Making a Splash!!

Well thank goodness it's not a water type splash! I have had enough of those to last me awhile! I'm talking back splash for the kitchen!! It is finished and looking fabulous! Jared and I are so pleased with how everything came out! Maybe just maybe it was meant to be!! Our house is practically brand new now! We absolutely love the floors, the tile are now are back splash!!!

Jared's parents came up this past weekend and had a MAJOR role in the facelift of our kitchen yet again!!! Jack did all the tile laying, jared did all the cute, Lori helped grab spacers, hand off tiles, and make sure the lines were straight, and I buttered....the TILE silly!! Yes you butter tile...with adhesive not butter so it will stick to the board and stay in place! I must say it came second nature to me!! It was quite the family project! It took about 6 hours on Sunday and Jared finished it up last night! Our kitchen is AMAZING!! We are so happy with the out come!!!

Thank you so much Lowe's for coming up this past weekend!!!!! We couldn't have done it without you!!! Enjoy the pictures!!
