We're Getting There

So we officially moved into our new home the weekend before last.  It is nowhere near being finished but it is definitely looking loads better! We have come so far since closing day. We have new floors, a new roof, a new bathroom upstairs and down, and new carpet throughout the upstairs.  We have torn out floors and ceilings. Painted EVERYWHERE. This house has done a full 360 in just over a month.

 In other news... I GOT A NEW JOB!!! WHOOT! Last night I was offered a job as an office manager making more money than I have ever imagined. Ben and I are so excited that we could just scream. This news came at the absolute perfect time since this house is driving us broke!

There is still much to do in the DIY category of our lives but we are definitely getting there!

One day Owen and Turner came over to see the new house. T walked into my dinning room and said, "Did Pace is a mess!" He was RIGHT!
