The Beginning...

This will be my very first blog entry. Ever! I'm a lot excited and a bit nervous at how it will turn out, but a girl has to start somewhere.... right? That being said, I think I should introduce myself and the reasons behind my idea to blog.

The Hubs and I just purchased our third home (with our two little girls H & J.) We got a great deal on the house buuuut it was because it's a power of sale. Needless to say the house needs a TON bit of work. We've painted the master bedroom, Master bath and H&J's bedrooms so far, but that's all we've been able to accomplish since we moved in a few months ago. (And we did the painting before we moved in.) I currently have towers of boxes in three corners of the dining room and it looks like they are going to be there forever!! Ugh.

 This is one corner of the dining room...

Annnd another....

 Annnnd finally the other corner... See. All three corners. Boxes. Blah.

However, I'm an avid reader of a few DIY sites who have seriously inspired me to start small, and to go for it! And so that's what I'm doing! Me! The girl who does pretty much nothing when it comes to getting my hands dirty...well except for when I get ink on my pretty little fingers when scrapbooking! And I'm not kidding about my fingers... They are pretty! I work in a spa. ;o)

Today while the Hubs is at work, H,J & I are about to leave on the hunt for a few things to start the redecorating of our home. (We are starting in the smallest room of our house, The Powder Room!)

Currently what the Powder Room looks like (Potty & all.)

I know it's going to take a century a couple of years to get the house where we want it, but this is going to be my journal of how it goes! I hope you can be patient with me as I journey along into the world of blogging & doing things myself, on a TIGHT budget.

Well that's it for now! I hope this first entry didn't suck too badly! Annnd, I hope you'll follow along with me and hopefully give me advice and tips on DIY(ing) and blogging in general. 

Cheers for now!
