Our house update + giveaway

Wednesday WORKOUT:

30 minute tempo run.- 3.45 miles, 8:44 pace
man i forgot how hard speedwork is


For my newer readers, Kyle and I bought a house together in 2014! Because we both work full-time, and I am also in graduate school, all of our house projects move slowwwwwly.

The day we got the keys!

We really have only tackled the downstairs bathroom and the living room.

BEFORE: This is how the living room looked when we first saw our house.

AFTER: It’s not quite finished, but we definitely like how much lighter the room feels. Still needs:

  • Love seats (which my fabulous mom reupholstered) need some modifying and legs
  • Year-round decor for the mantle. I really only have decor for Fall and Christmas haha.
  • Decor in general: art work/photos, side tables, lamps, etc.

And here is our downstairs bathroom, right before I redecorated it.

BEFORE: Very yellow. And bland like a saltine. You can see the painters tape in the background 😉

AFTER: I tried a few different colors before choosing this grey.

I promise it looks better in person. Very hard to take a photo when this room get no natural light.

My favorite thing in this bathroom is the canvas photo on the wall. My dad took this photo of my family when we went to Montreal several years ago.


Kyle and I definitely want to have meaningful photos hanging around our house, rather than random pictures of babies we don’t know. Sorry Anne Geddes.

  1. If you change your mind, I have about 4 framed prints of Anne Geddes/style children I don’t know. They are not going to survive our remodel….

  2. I love your house! You guys have done a great job and I absolutely love that picture of your family. I’ve been thinking of doing some canvases. I just subjected Rock to our first family photo with the dog and baby. It was awesome. We did it in the fall in the woods behind my parent’s house and actually paid for a photographer. I’m so in love with our pics! Gah, I am so happy for you. New house. Husband to be. And wedding planning!!!!
