Upgrading to new digs

I feel super cool that I just made that the title of this post.  When I shared it with Cameron he laughed at me... how rude ;)

So this post is about us signing the papers for our new rental house!!!!  WOOHOO!!!  We knew pretty early on in our current place that we did not want to stay here.  1. We are busting at the seams (I should post pictures sometime to show you) and 2. At times we have sketchy neighbors that make living here interesting to say the least.

Going in to a rental house we had a list of wants for a new place:
*Neighborhood close to campus so Cameron can bike to class
*At least 2 bedrooms
*Larger living space (our current living room is tiny)
*Accepts pets
*Yard with space for entertaining
*Under $550
*One car garage

The house we signed the papers for meets these needs and provides the added bonus of a basement, and wonderful landlords that are letting us customize the space to us.  In the next couple of weeks as we work to update and paint the house I will share all of the fun details, but for now I am going to share a few photos of how the house looks right now.

As you can see from the pictures it needs definite TLC, paint, and cutting back of the overgrowth outside, but we are SO excited to start work on our house!  We already have paint colors picked out and ideas for the patio :)  Stay tuned for a lot of DIY in the next couple of weeks!


  1. Hey! I think I've seen that house!! I love it, super cute. And totally jealous that you have hardwood floors :)

    1. Thank you so much Naomi! We love having the hardwood floors and they look so nice after re-polying them :) Sorry for not seeing this post earlier!
