My amazing husband

My husband is amazing.

I feel sad for every other woman in the world because they can't be married to him. I GOT HIM! :)

He is truly wonderful...for millions of reasons.

Today as I was sweeping and cleaning I started thinking about my house. We bought our house over a year ago at a tax auction. (the former owner didn't pay his taxes for YEARS and owed millions to the IRS.) There is a long, weird story behind our house, but suffice it to say that our house is well-known in this area.

"Oh, YOU bought that house!!" is a reaction we get a LOT! :)

Our house had been empty for almost 5 years when we bought it. Needless to say it needed a lot of work. My husband knew how much I loved this house and the room for the kids to run that it has. He has willingly worked and worked and WORKED to make this house my dream house.

Before and after pictures:

Our house is still a work in progress...the basement spare bedroom and an office is still being worked on. Little things here and there like window treatments and closet doors :).....but this house is my DREAM house.

I am so thankful for a husband who works hard for the Lord and works so very hard to please me.

It's gorgeous Debbie! SOOOOO big and spacious! Look at your kitchen! Holy cow- that is awesome!

We're in that process ourselves. The bulk is over (paise the LORD!) but a million smaller projects remain. It's been so great to be able to pick out every color and have my tastes considered in EVERYTHING! I just need a crown and a throne! ;)

So happy for you!

It's so nice Debbie! What does the front look like now? Did I miss that? Keep us updated on the little projects! When we moved into our home, we did the bulk before we lived in it and 3 years later, we still have stuff to do! OY. But, I am so glad we got the majority done before. Though I do enjoy getting the small projects done now. Anyway, share more when you can!

Amy, the house looks a lot the same from the front....just the grass is short! :) Someday we'll do vinyl siding...someday! Get the outside lookin' too good and taxes will go up more! :)
