Seriously. Freaking. Out. - Seriously.

It is official. Our house goes on the market this Monday. As in a day and a half from now. As in 33 hours from now. As in 1,980 minutes from now. For those of you who know me, you know that I am about to hyperventilate and pass out.

Our House-Before and After

May 1, 2008, we moved into our house in Norman, Oklahoma. When we purchased it, it was nothing like what we wanted, but we had a vision for it, and knew that we could turn it into a special home for us. Here we are, almost three years later, putting our house on the market next week to sell so that we can begin a new adventure, in a new home. So many people have wanted to see what we have done to our home, so I have put together this blog post of "Before and After" photos. The before pictures were taken just prior to the woman who lived here before us had moved out, and the after pictures were taken tonight. Enjoy, and I would love it if you would leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Jayden's Room

The Full Bathroom

The Master Bedroom

The Third Bedroom-(We use this as an office/playroom.)

The Half Bathroom

The Hall (This is only an "After" photo...I didn't have a before, but the woodwork was dark!)

The Entry (The "After" picture doesn't show it, but the scalloped piece of wood in the kitchen is no longer there.)

The Kitchen

The wall in the kitchen where we removed the bar.

The Laundry Room

The Pantry.

The Dining Room.

The Living Room.

Well....what do you think? We love it, and hope that someone else will love it as well! Hopefully, it will sell quickly, and someone else can enjoy all of the hard work that we have put into our little house.

Tomorrow's a busy day...

This is my Extended Hours week at work. This means that I work four ten hour days and have a day off in the week. Well, tomorrow is my day off, and it is going to be busy! I am actually kind of dreading it because it is going to be exhausting. My mom is going to come over at 9:30 a.m. to help me get through the day, thank goodness. I have a dentist appointment here in Norman at 11:10. I have an eye doctor appointment in Edmond at 3:00. This means that I will probably hit rush hour traffic on my way home. All the time in between, and I'm sure for a while after, we have to get our house in tip-top condition. The photographer from is coming on Friday to take pictures of our house to put on the Internet, and it has to look PERFECT. No more putting things off, saying that we will take care of it later, this is it. These are going to be the pictures that everyone sees when they look at our house online. And first impressions are everything, so we have to get some great pictures. Keep your fingers crossed that we get everything done!
