Before and After.....(aka, uber long post with lots a pics!)

The house updates are dunzo! (for now anyway.... :)) And let me just say, I feel like I have spent more time at Home Depot than any twenty-something girl should ever have to! Those fun trips of picking out fun new updates quickly turned into,,,,uugggghhhh, we are out of the blue painters tape - again - (insert several not so nice words). But I will say that I am very happy with how it has all turned out. I was a little worried in the middle of the process that it would be too dark or too much or not flow or what have you, and my husband's lack of enthusiasm didn't help much, but in the end it all came together and we both fell in love with our house all over again!

Ch-ch-ch-check it out...





How did we live with that awful white wall/backsplash for so long?!?!?



And here is a close up of our tile.....i absolutely heart this tile!!


Ahhhh, color!








my sweet little man wondering what in the h-e-double hockey sticks his mom and dad are doing! How precious is he?!?!?!

you will notice all of my lovely little test spots all over the place......








I have several canvases at home screaming my name to be painted and hung above the TV on this lovely wall....I think that will be done this weekend......what did I say about being dunzo???





and I must make note of this, see that lovely little picture frame below...that is my jewelry box! it has hooks for necklaces, slots for earrings, pockets, and rods for bracelets, all hanging perfectly without getting knotted together - it is freaking GENIOUS!!! The only problem....it is getting full....I think I need another one......




I FINALLY got my teal bedroom!!! Whoop Whoop!!! I believe this is my fav!






I just printed these pics out yesterday, they are the pics of us holding each other's wedding band.....I just love 'em!



So, that's it! Whatcha think?!

Happy Friday Ladies!!!
And to all my Nashville Ladies, enjoy this LOVELY weather!!!!!
I am thinking running out the door at 4 and grabbing some cocktails on a patio somewhere.....

Sarah! The house looks amazing... all that hard work paid off and I am loving your subway tile-- we are wanting to use some of that in our house once we get all settled and decide to dive into home improvement

Okay, so once you told me I would "get to it later" I had to skip ahead a few months... :)

I LOVE THE BEDROOM! Everything looks amazing! I can't wait to see it in person in a couple weeks! I know camera flash always makes stuff not look as cool as it does with natural lighting, but I can't imagine it looking any better than it already does in these pictures! I am so jealous. Please come help me redo my kitchen. I won't even put you to work! I just need ideas!
