Sorry I've been MIA the past couple of weeks, I do have a good reason, just not ready to share just yet. Life has been busy, you know how it goes! I don't really have a post ready for today, but thought I would start a series of before and after pictures of our house. We randomly happened to stop by the house one day and saw that there was a SOLD sign up out front, the very next day the whole sign was taken down. So glad we happened to stop by that day.

I have to say that this picture makes the orange color house look GOOD, like seriously, people in the neighborhood called it the pumpkin house, we considered painting the trim green to really hone in on the pumpkin name since Halloween was in a month when we moved in, but opted to just paint the house a normal color.

The first day I drove home after painting the house, I actually drove past it since I was just used to looking for the orange house. Our neighbors next down, down the hill, almost did the same thing, just used to looking for the orange and turning at the house just before.

Suffice to say our neighbors LOVED us since the first thing we did, like the Monday after moving in, we painted the house a nice normal tan color.

If you think the outside was bad, just wait till you see the inside, it was like a rainbow threw up in there, no joke. Till then, hope you have a great weekend! My parents are headed down this weekend and we're going to a baby shower for a really good friend, so excited to help them celebrate their new little one to-be.
