Goodbye West Drive


Hi friends!!
Wow its been a long time since I've updated here! I guess thats what having a baby does to you -- that baby by the way will be 2 in September, and we have another little one on the way. I'm not prepared for this!
We sold our last house in May and moved into an absolute fixer, think 1980's in a not so good way. I'm really excited to share here the projects we complete in our new home, but in the meantime I want to ensure to document what our last house looked like before we handed off the keys to the new owners.

Savannah Babymoon


A couple of weeks ago we decided pretty last minute that we wanted to take one last trip together, just the two of us! It's really starting to sink in that life as we know it is about to change so we figured what the heck! We packed a bag, booked a cheap hotel (I'm obsessed with Priceline bidding... anyone else use that? I love to research the possible hotels that I could win right before placing my bid... usually I can guess the exact hotel we'll win and we save a ton of money on our room!!) hopped in the car and drove to one of our absolute favorite vacation spots, Savannah. Savannah's only about a 4.5 hour drive from our house. Just long enough that you're happy to get out of the car once you're there but not so long that you contemplate killing one another mid-way through (the 10 hour drive to my parent's house is another story HAHA!). :)

Ripping out the old floors


There was a lot of work that had to be done before we would be able to install the new floors.
We had to tear out carpet (easy peasy!!), tile (not as easy peasy but not terrible), and glued-down engineered hardwood (torture... an absolutely miserable task). I say "we" but I have to give major props to Aaron because being pregnant it really wasn't safe for me to use the bigger tools that we rented to tackle the tile and hardwood. He's basically a floor removal pro at this point! Love you sweetie!
