House Update!

I have not updated anything about our house in quite some time. We moved in October 31st (yes, Halloween, how fitting). I was 8 months pregnant and really couldn't do a thing other than put my feet up and go pee. So, because we were so desperate to move out of the in laws (Jared's parents), we hightailed it out of there as soon as we got our certificate of occupancy...even if that did mean our trim was no where near complete, closets were not done, our dining room table and bookshelves needed to be stained [note to self: NEVER buy unfurnished furniture!] and the list goes on.

Anyways, we've slowly [but surely] been getting more and more accomplished on our house. We actually have some grass now, rather than a rocky mud pit :) And, this past weekend, Jared put up our shutters! Let me tell you, this was a HUGE improvement. It really dressed up our house, at least I think so ;) You tell me what you think...Here's the before pic:

and here's the after:
Well, whatcha think?! I think it look A LOT better! It's amazing what something as simple as shutters can do. We still have to finish our porch, and we're going to concrete a portion of our driveway. Oh, and we have to put some grass seed on the left side of our driveway. Still by no means no where near finished, but it's a start!


  1. I love it with the shutters, they make a huge difference!

  2. Nice!!! We might be coming the week after Gregg's surgery!! He wants to try to go visit you guys with me this time!!! :)


Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
