House Goal Number One- Complete!

Remember in January when I was under the weather and posted some atrocious photos of the current state of our house? That month had to be one of the best and worst months of the year so far! We officially went to the doctor to confirm our little bundle of joy, but in the same month I was struck with the worst sicknesses I’ve ever experienced!

Luckily, things have made a huge turn around! I’m feeling terrific! The house is clean! Things are getting done, and the warmer weather is bringing out the best in me!

If you missed the one of two posts I made in January {how pathetic, right?}, here’s the state our living room was in.


Good thing no one wanted to enter the premises with all the germs that had invaded our space! This room was scary and definitely did not say welcome to our home! It screamed, “RUN AWAY!”

Other than the fact that I thought I was on my death bed, this room was in the state it was in thanks to the guest bedroom having the ugly blue carpet ripped out of it. Don’t believe me? See the ugly blue strip of carpet? That’s what we were living with. Ugh!

The good news is that we’ve made progress in the bedroom, cleaned the living room out, and ordered our brand new living room furniture that I blogged about back in November.


Still not even close to being a finished room, but a huge improvement!

We opted to go with the Rowe Nantucket slipcovered couches in Champagne, which is more like a nice linen blend. Totally comfortable! Totally easy to clean! No need to deal with the dry cleaners when you can clean them at your own home!

This room still has a long way to go though!


Hopefully, we’ll be knocking out number two on my House Goal List over the next couple of weeks. My goal is before Easter, but I don’t know if it will happen or not. Right now I’m floating between a gray green or a gray blue. We’ll see what happens when I actually go to the paint store.

Hope you all have a great start to your week!
