Our weekend in an instagram...

Monday, August 20, 2012

This weekend has been a busy one, just like the previous four. However, we had a little help this weekend as we try to get everything done for the big move next weekend. My parents came in to help get things started while the Mr and I were working on Friday. When we got to the house Friday evening, this is what we found...

The tile guys were hard it at on Friday as they finished out the kitchen floor. It looks so good!!

I was going to help mom paint the downstairs guest bath on Saturday, but she knocked it out while I was hard at work on Friday.

Mom, dad and the Mr wasn't too sure about the color when it first went on the wall, however once it dried they all came around to "liking" it. It's not as orange as it looks, in person.

Saturday morning, mom and I got started touching up the paint on the trim around the doors and while we were knee deep in white paint... the Mr and my dad were changing the door hardware...

We have twenty inside doors in our house. So... that meant we had to buy everything to change out all the gold doorknobs and hardware to the new oil rubbed bronze hardware. The downstairs is completed, and most of the upstairs has been updated.

While all of this was taking place... this little one was getting snuggly in a blanket...

Mid afternoon on Saturday it was time to say goodbye to the parents and kiss little MB. She is finally starting to adjust to the new house. I think her favorite part is running up and down the stairs. =)

Sunday, we went back to do more work — the Mr changing out my hinges, etc. and me painting the downstairs doors.

The couple that lived there before we bought the house had five, yep five kids! And apparently those kids LOOOOVED to write on the back of their doors. The oldest girl must have let her friends sign the back of her door every time they came over. I wish I would have taken a before picture, but I thought of it right after I painted the first door. By that time I was on a roll and had paint all over my fingers. =)

This was our last weekend in the apartment. Ready or not... (which I'm hoping for the ready) we move next weekend. I'm so excited to see it all come together this week!!


  1. Wow I can't believe it's already time to move into your new place! How exciting! Happy last week in the apt!

  2. Congratulations on moving! I am visiting from Mingle Monday. I am sure you all will LOVE having a house of your own!

  3. I think the orange actually looks really good! I do like bright colors in general, though! :)

  4. Visiting from Mingle Monday! I love the doorknobs! Congrats on moving! I hope you have a wonderful week!!
