The home inspection was yesterday so I took some pictures of the house :)

First is the living room, I didn't get a close up of the paint, but it's a pretty cool technique, looks like they used rags. I just don't like the colors or that they put it on every single wall! (also, the paint is really darker in person, so keep that in mind).

The sideways laundry room and half bath :)

The hallway leading to the other bathroom and the bedrooms, more paint, oh and you can see it a little closer on the left.

L's future room, I took pictures of all the walls but figured you got the gist of it here ;). Yes, it does cover the whole ceiling too.

Master bedroom, same paint texture technique as the living room, just in blues. (This paint is also darker in person). A pretty good sized room though, they have a lot of furniture in there so I just showed the one corner.
The boys bedroom, I'm thinking of leaving one wall this color and painting the other three, or maybe leaving the bottom half of the wall this color, not sure yet. Any ideas?

Remember that news I told you to stay tuned for?

Well, I can now say what it is.

We are under contract to purchase our first home!!! Woohooo :)

It is a 3 bd, 1.5 ba, 1200 sq ft house. Our closing date is August 9th and then I plan on painting several rooms, luckily my sister volunteered to come help, yay. The sellers love texture and color and pattern, not so much my favorite thing for walls.

One regret though, the smallest bedroom, the one L will take over, would be perfect for a baby, it has a Winne The Pooh mural painted on all the walls and ceiling, it looks fantastic, but not ideal for a 10, going on 16 year old girl ;). So we'll be covering it up. I'll be sure to take some pics first, because they really did a good job with it.

Happy dancin' at our house!

Post formerly known as Wordless Wednesday.

When I went to bed last night, I decided to post a picture of LittleMan sleeping and it would be easy because it's Wordless Wednesday, I wouldn't have to think of anything to say. But as I sit here this morning, I want to talk :P

I have gained some weight lately, really sucks. My pants/shorts are all tight, I don't like how I look in the mirror, I feel fat. I'm not fat, but I'm squishy and I really hate being squishy, add a few (or 5) extra pounds and I'm not a happy girl.

I went to the Dr. yesterday, I have been having a few, or a lot, of health issues lately and finally decided to go in and get myself fixed up. They always weigh you when you go in, I guess they want to torture you a bit. So I have officially gained weight, it's not just in my head. Hopefully the new medicine I received will help me feel well enough to start running again. I know my butt and thighs hope so :)

And here is the picture I had planned on posting. It's one of LittleMan and his friends watching over him.

and, yes, he is sleeping with all those beady little eyes staring at him.
