The Renovation Has Officially Begun: Part One

home remodeling ideas renovation

Hey you guys!!! I'm so excited. 

The renovation has finally begun! 

As many of you know (especially if you've been following on Instagram), we've been in our new house now for a little over a month, scheduling contractors and doing some light renovation work ourselves (aka me painting in my sweatpants every night). But, finally this week, we began the actual renovation.

Progress Report: Painting away the Tuscan

Hey y'all! First and foremost, thank you so much for being so kind about the new house tour in my last post. I know it's a total mess and really dated, but it was such a relief to know that you guys 'got it', (and if you didn't read the house tour, you're prob not going to understand why I love this house based off this new post, so just be kind and rewind.). So, anyway, these are trying times and you guys are the best.

And now it's time for a progress report!

New House Tour!!!!

Hey y'all. It's finally new house tour time!

Thank you for being so patient with me. I've wanted to share these pics with you for nearly a month now. But, I've been busy...and also busy...and also scared.

I'm used to sharing ugly before pics followed by a nice after picture, and it's really hard for me to be vulnerable and just be like, 'Hey look at my house! It's still ugly, y'all!'.

But, I've been thinking a lot about it, and I realize that I miss out on so much when I don't share the entire journey with you guys, so let's just do it. I'll be uncomfortable. I can do it. There are worse things.

Ava Turns One (plus some updates on the house)!

Hey y'all! So, last week we celebrated Ava's birthday.

I can barely believe it's been a year since this precious little human was born. I look at that picture to the left and my heart melts. I forgot she was ever that tiny.

How We Sold Our House in a Week (and the final house tour)!

How We Sold Our House in a Week (and the final house tour)!
Hey y'all!
I have great news! The morning after I wrote last week's post, we got an offer on our home and it is now under contract! Thank you for all of your well wishes and encouragement. I truly appreciate it so much! If you've been following along, you know that things have been a little crazy, with us buying our next fixer upper and selling our current house all in just a few short weeks.

House selling updates!

Hey ya'll! Thank you guys so much for all of your encouraging words on last week's post and on IG regarding our move.
I'm so excited. 

And, it's been an absolutely crazy week.

I have some big news!

Hey ya'll. I have some exciting news. There's so much going on to tell you guys about. We'll get to the big stuff in a minute. But, first, Ava turns a year old on June 23rd and I can barely believe it. Who knew you could love another person so intensely?! 
And we can't even conversate yet! Although she does say 'TeeTee' (Tootie), dada, ball, and duck. 
(Priorities, obviously.)

DIY Abstract Wall Art

Hey guys! I have a really easy wall art idea for you today, but before we get started, I just wanted to thank everyone who came to follow me on Instagram after my bathroom makeover post. I usually post over there about once a week, and even though most of my posts these days tend to be about my personal life rather than my creative life, I still love having the chance to interact with you on a regular basis.

DIY Bathroom Remodel on a Budget

DIY Bathroom Remodel on a Budget
So, it's been about 3 months since I've last blogged, and I just want to thank you guys for being so supportive via social media. The time constraints that come with being a new mom have been a really difficult adjustment for me, and since I don't have many mom friends in real life, it's been such a soul-balm to have this community of women online who have been down this new-mom road and can offer words of kindness and reassurance when I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.
