Wanting to Renovate

Someone please hand me $100, 000 dollar to start renovating this windows, new floors, driveway, pool deck, appliances...Ok, the scary part is we would need more than $100,000 to make this place close to what I am envisioning, ugh.

I still love it. I LOVE our home...because it is ours, and we made sacrifices for it and the neighborhood is perfect! Well, maybe I don't love every 80s square inch of it, like the gold faucets, etc.

This is a pic of our living looks A LOT bigger in the pic than it really you can see the front door and a part of the dining room to the left. The fireplace is made of coral...we want to replace the glass shelves with rustic wooden ones. The right side of the living room (which you can't see), is made up of 3 french doors that lead to the pool (you can kinda see how the sun shines in and is reflecting on the floor).
Here are some pics I found on Decor Pad tonight that I absolutely LOVE:
A girl can dream.


  1. I love your dream pictures but your reality is nice too! I completely understand your feeling of wanting more. We are probably going to put off our forever house another 3-5 years just so we can save for it and get what we really want. But I really want it NOW!

  2. Thanks Meredith! We really saved up and put a little over 20% down on our home. I am not sure if it is our forever home but it has the potential to be! With the market the way it is now, I think we will be here at least 5 years.

  3. Little by little things will come into place! Be patient! But for now, I love your inspirations :)

  4. I had just seen that first house pic and was like, "WHOA!! THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!" I love is cause it looks open and so fresh and clean. I like when rooms are pretty white like that. You will make it look beautiful.

    I am glad I found your blog. Love it.

    How tall are you btw?

  5. Thanks girls you are the best!

    Krissa- I'm juuuust under 5'7...5'6 1/2 or so. I love your blog as well! Thanks so much. =)
