100 Posts, 6 Months, 2.5 Years!

Today is a hell of a post. (Helluvah?) Not only is today our 100th post, it marks us living in Blue for six months (to the date!) and Nate and I have been married for 2.5 Years.

Hot Damn!

Anyone else excited?

I wanted to use this post as a mile marker for us and show what we've done. One day, Nate and I hope to send our blog posts over to shutterfly (or something like that...I don't remember the exacts) to have it bound as a memory book for us- so have a 6 month mark is a super fun thing for us.

Please enjoy these before and afters for where we're at only six months in!

First, we'll start with the entryway (obvs) Which, I was surprised to discover in the millions of pictures on my computer, that I don't have a real picture of the stairs or anything- so we'll have to get on that.

Next we will make our way into the fireplace room. Which is currently drying so I don't have an after picture. What? Whoops. I don't know if you were supposed to hear that yet...

Then we'll go to our first baby and big project- the family room.

And the attached dining room.

Then we have the in-progress downstairs bathroom:

And our kitchen- which luckily for us we didn't have to do anything to but personalize.

Then we'll peek into the garage...

And out to the back yard!

We'll go to the upstairs, where there's the landing (which amazingly I have ZERO pictures of right now) so, we'll move on. And, we'll go into the love room the master bedroom.

And the room-of-doom turned guest room/future nursery (someday- not pregnant!)

And the Upstairs Bath

And the guest room!

I love our home.  I look at it and I still see all the work that needs to be done, but I have to say, I have thoroughly enjoyed these last six months- getting my hands dirty, and creating a special place for Nate and I. While this blog is mostly for us to look back on and go "EW LOOK AT THOSE WOOD COUNTER TOPS" I love that you guys are here every day to squeal at cool things with us.

Happy 100th Post!


  1. The master bedroom is my most favoritest room :)
    happy hundredth post!

    1. Thanks! I'm surprised how much I'm liking the red in the bedroom. I'm usually more of a blue bedroom person.

  2. I feel like I should know this, but did you guys close in the window in the dining room?

    I can't wait for you to get to the upstairs bathroom! So many possibilities.

    1. No! Never! My Goodness. Give me a heart attack why don't ya, Tracie...The dining room/family room is one long room. On one end of the room is the extra large window, the other side has the built in that the TV is in and the built in has one small window in it. We are luck in this house that every room has multiple windows- I love natural light!

  3. Congrats on the 100! It's a big deal :) And you have come a long way in 6 months. Love the sink in your kitchen. mm mm mmm!

    1. Thanks, Honey! It is quite the sexy sink. I sometimes just stand there and touch it awkwardly. Sing it songs...tuck it in at night...

  4. Congrats!! I can't believe how much work you've done already!

  5. Congratulations! We moved in at almost exactly the same time as you (although I took a lot longer to start blogging about it). You've done a ton! And good job timing your 100th post to line up with the anniversaries :)

    1. Thanks! How fun! We started the blog in August, but we haven't missed a weekday post since we started. I don't know how it happened that they all lined up- but it was the day before our anniversary that we closed, so I knew somewhere we'd line everything up!
