So Much to Say


Right now I have SO much to fill you in on that it’s hard to find a good place to start.

I’ll give you the short version first, then I’ll fill you in on all the details later.  Here we go!

- We bought 3 houses in June, and only one of them has a gold, glittery popcorn ceiling.  I know, so disappointing.

- Our 8th flip went on the market the day after she got here.  (Sidenote – we headed to the hospital an hour and a half after I wrapped up with the photographer at the flip!)

- My babies love each other. And I promise we put clothes on them sometimes.

- We’re gearing up to buy another flip in August, if all goes well.


More later!

She’s Here!

She's Here!

We’ve added another little girl to our family, and we officially feel like the luckiest people on the planet.

She's Here!

She made her debut around 10pm on Tuesday night and she’s been awesome ever since!

Her big sister is quite interested in this “baby! baby!” that’s been hanging around.  I’m not quite sure she understands that the baby is here for the long haul, but I think she’ll get used to it.  :)

We’re getting in the swing of our new routine, and we’re loving being a family of four.  Now, does anyone have any tips for getting some sleep at night?  :)

A Contemporary Exterior Update

Exteriors are the area where I tend to struggle most when updating our flips (ahem).  That’s why I’m always so inspired when I come across an exterior renovation that absolutely transforms the curb appeal and vibe of a home.

Take this little 1950s ranch, for example.  It’s bland, beige and boring, and the carport is just stuck on the front of the house like an afterthought.

But take a look at the same little ranch just 4 years later:

I know, right?!?

Obviously this wasn’t a quick, easy or cheap transformation – but now this little ranch has me swooning.

While there are too many updates to mention, the biggest changes are:

- the addition of a master suite to the front facade of the home, which balances out the carport

- utilitizing the narrow corridor between the addition and the carport as a defined entry and private courtyard

- a snazzy metal roof

- horizontal wood accents to emphasize the contemporary lines of the home

I don’t know why but I’ve really been wanting a courtyard lately.  We actually hang out in our front yard a decent amount, and the thought of having a little extra privacy while you’re watching the world go by sounds appealing to me.  And who couldn’t enjoy a courtyard like this?

What do you think of this renovation?
