It's also good for me to go slower though because I'm really making an effort to go through and physically touch every.single.thing. so we can have a big garage sale in the next month or so. It's a challenge to really ask myself, "will I use that soon?" "Will I really wear that shirt that I've had for 6 years and stopped wearing 2 years ago??" :) I'm one of those "what if" girls. What if I get another camera some day and need that empty extra camera case?? What if something comes up and I'll need to wear my red cowgirl boots?? You know, those sort of life's what ifs. :)
Anyway, so for now, here are some before and after's of the house! This house was a foreclosure so it was not real pretty... My father in law completely gutted it to the sheetrock and re-did everything. As in everything - cabinets, counters, flooring, etc.
(I hope it's okay to post these WVMLS before pictures because they have their name on them...taken from the house listing on www.wvmls.com)

Close up of the tile. Didn't he do such a good job!?
Other "after's" that I didn't have "before's" of...
Front door on the right, looking towards the hallway to the bedrooms from the living room.
Hallway to the bedrooms.
I have a coat/shoe closet by the front door for the first time ever!! Hip hip hooray!!
Nice storage closet. Thrilled. :)
So there you have it. Didn't my father in law do a FABULOUS job?!?! And in THREE weeks?! I'm amazed. (And so thrilled that Skyler grew up with such a handy dad. Skyler learned good handy man skills growing up!)
Now...back to unpacking while the little one is asleep. :)
