What a Slacker's House Looks Like

I'm feeling a bit slacker-ish today, remembering how I originally intended this blog to be about our house and all of the spectacular renovations we did... I was pumped because we did so much in the beginning, but we've been kind of at a standstill. This summer has been so busy, it's hard to get a free afternoon, let alone a whole weekend to do work. Plus, who wants to be knocking down walls and painting when it's 95 outside AND inside (yes, we have AC, but we don't really use it... hey we just bought a house people do you think we can afford to run the AC now? ha)... HOWEVER, we have done a little to make the outside of the house a little more presentable. We still want to eventually re-side the whole house (what? who doesn't love a PEACH house? ick.) and maybe even do a stone veneer over that smartly painted brick... all in time. Check out what the house looked like 3 months ago and what it looks like today!



I did plant a lilac bush in the front yard, but it was out of the picture... don't you love the pretty brown grass? haha. Well, there's my house update... next one in a few more months! (just kidding... hopefully!)


  1. Your grass looks 1000 times better then our lawn! I love the plants and flowers

  2. oh it looks so good. it actually doesn't look peach with the black shutters. love you!!

  3. It looks great! I LOVE the dark door and shutters. It looks so inviting! We've lived in our house for almost a year and we totally hit a standstill like a month after we moved in!
