It's Offical

Rich and I just bought our first home and are now officially homeowners! We purchased a ranch style fixer upper and we've got big plans for it!  Today was our first work day.  We got all the carpet out and almost all the wallpaper down.

We are planning on painting the brick and shutters, replacing the front doors, and sprucing up the landscaping but right now we are concentrating on the inside.

Anyone up for a game of hopscotch?  This is the current carpet in the man room...

Pink carpet throughout the rest of the house!

So happy to get all that nasty carpet out of the house!  I could not have done it without Chloe's help!

Fabulous wood accented wall...  There is a fireplace on the other side which I wanted to open up so it is in both the living room and kitchen but it is not in the center of the wall.  So right now I am thinking we will either do a built in on the right side or just sheet rock over the whole thing.

But before we sheet rock over the wall we better make sure we get all the bodies out!

There is a really weird secret compartment inside the wall!

Chloe and I had never taken down wall paper before but I think we did a pretty good job.

More wallpaper in the foyer! Mom and Chloe knocked this out and got it all down.  Taking the wallpaper down opened up the space and made it so much brighter!  It was so much fun working on the house today and hope you all don't get bored because all my blogs will probably revolve around the remodel for a while!


  1. I definitely won't get bored! Home renovation is super bloggable. We look forward to helping out once our lives calm down a bit!

  2. Ewwww to the hopscotch carpet in the mens room! I am appalled!
