Hey guys! What an amazing, crazy week we've had! Our entire house is covered in dust and debris because... (drum roll please) we just got new windows put in! Ack! We are super excited! You may or may not know that three years ago, Kit and I bought the house that I grew up in from my parents. The first year we worked our little bottoms off tearing down wallpaper, painting, and replacing electrical outlets! Then, I found out I was pregnant... with twins! For the next nine months, the only projects we were able to pull off were putting the nursery and playroom together. Since then, we've repainted the exterior of the house and, just yesterday, finally replaced our awful, dirty, cloudy, mucky, yucky aluminum windows with brand spanking new energy efficient windows! I am in LOVE! Here is a pic of the house the day that we bought it.
And here is a pic of our freshly painted house with new windows! (Please disregard the dying grass! We are currently in one of the longest droughts ever!)

I'll hook you up with this fabulous company so you can learn more about saving on energy costs and, of course, making your house pretty!
