I've Been Holding Out On You

Alright dear friends. It is time to spill the beans. There is something really fun and awesome that has been in the works for several months now, and it's so close to being official that I feel compelled to let you know NOW!


Note: The text says "Here it is! YAY!!"

What an amazing and exciting experience it has been to go house shopping! All those years of watching HGTV started to pay off (and I'm sure will continue to as I help decorate), and Jason found an adorable diamond in the rough that's like 5 minutes away from the Geyers.

3 bedrooms, 2 (1/2.. I'll get to that) baths, basement, weirdo/neat carport with a patio on top, and all kinds of other goodies like a gorgeous wood ceiling and some of the most beautiful closets I've ever seen.

I wish I had pictures already to show you, but not to fear - you will be there with us every step of the way, as we:
  • rip up carpet (think rainbow colored shag, light blue shag, yellow shag, and brown checkerboard shag)
  • paint walls (think homey, wonderful, earthy tones)
  • and eventually get around to remodeling the bathrooms (think pink tub and pink tile, with little brown tiles sprinkled in for the hall bath and blue blue blue for the master bath) and kitchen (remember that brownish orangeish redish color stove your Great Aunt Sally had in her kitchen? yeah, that's the one).
So to the 2 (1/2) bathrooms - there are the two I already talked about and then you go downstairs towards the laundry area and WHOA - all of a sudden: there's a random toilet. Yes, it works. Yes, there was a roll of toilet paper sitting next to it when we toured the house. Hmmmm. Don't know how I feel about it. Anyways...

Luckily for me, Jason wants my opinion on everything and I've even been able to choose the living room, kitchen/dining room, and office colors so far. :) As soon as he officially gets in there and we start bringing the house out of the 60s/70s, I will let you know!!



  1. Shag's back in, hon! Embrace it! Haha-- I'm so excited for you! Sounds like fun.

  2. YAY SARAH! That is super exciting! How fun! I'm sure it will be beautiful when it's all finished -- if you need extra help, let me know as we are flipping my Grandmother's house right now! :)

  3. yay! although from your descriptions it sounds like you don't need to change a thing;)

    who doesn't want the old carpet/old person smell???


Even if it's just to say "You so silly, Sarah" - please feel free to leave comments!
