Extra!! Extra!! Read all about it!!

Exciting news!! Someone looked at our house, and liked it so much that they decided to put an offer on it!! YAY! but it's a really low offer so we'll see what we can do to negociate, but it's movement in the right direction so that's cool!!

here are some "before" pics of the house.... i personally think it's quite an improvement from before to after. I think that my favorite room before.... due to pure jaw dropping power is the "pink" room... which is now green. but then again all the wall paper is pretty bad too!!

First Post

Ok. so here we go. Blogspot. I had a heck of a time getting to the website!! i did a google search for blogspot, clicked, and all the sudden the screen is covered in Korean (Seo used this computer before me!!) shout out to Rach for gettin' me started here. I'm loving the whole keeping in contact thing.

marco and i are trying to sell our house so we can move back out west.... shorten the distance between us and family. so far we'd been averageing 3 showings a week... until last week when we didn't have any. it was kind of disheartening. but then this week things turned around. we had a showing monday, tuesday, nothing on wednesday and we're going to have two today!! maybe it's cause it rained last week, and people didn't feel like looking for houses. who knows. we're just waiting for the right person/people to say they love it and want to make it their home. I'm going to miss it when it's finally gone, but it will be worth it to be close to the fam

Here is the front of our little home, or at least our half of it

here's the sink in the pdr under the stairs.... i LOVE it now... before it was this hideous dark paisley pattern with an ugly vanity and the funkiest (in a bad way) toilet ever!
the bedroom.... it's kind of blah. but that's ok. makes it good for sleeping

the back deck... which isn't totally up to date.... we just refinished and weather proofed it. and cut that stupid bus down cause it always hit me in the head when i was grillin'

the dining room. with our cool world market table and ikea chairs

the kitchen.... we got new cabinets and countertops.... and it's auctually fun to use this kitchen now... before it was not at all fun! again hideous wallpaper and cracking countertops.

the living room. i want to get some autumn decorations and spruce it up for autumn. the first day of autumn was last weekend so i figure that gives me the right to decorate for it.... even though the forcast calls for weather in the 80's for at least the next 10 days!!! I'm looking forward to scarf weather!!
