Hi everyone!

It’s time to link up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Friday Favorites!!

I have some legit house remodeling progress pictures to share with you all today!!

The past month, things have really fallen into place. Demo day seems like forever and a day ago but in looking at our “before” pictures, we have completed a great amount of work!

The biggest difference is the amount of light that radiates into our living room.

Over the last few weeks, we have been tiling our floors with tile that looks like real wood. Though I helped a little bit, my husband and father-in-law worked many many hours to complete this phase of our remodeling.

Last Saturday, I went rug and couch shopping with my mother-in-law. This was a eye-opening experience for me. Couches can be so stinking expensive. I resigned myself to the fact that I may have to look elsewhere for more affordable couches. Though bummed that I didn’t find any couches in our price range, we found a rug at Home Depot and I absolutely love the embedded patterns and colors. And…we did get couches!!!! But not from a store! The story is down below- this was the only decent picture I had of the rug.

I didn’t purchase this but thought it was stunning. We stumbled upon this awesome light fixture at one of our stops. It was really expensive but it was so unique!

Sunday morning, I scoured Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace for couch deals. Shay and I found a couch and loveseat that we liked and arranged to meet up with the seller the next day. We were concerned about rain but we managed to find a UHaul to rent for dirt cheap and loaded up the couches before the downpours began.

These couches are awesome. They are leather and recline!!! Originally the seller asked for 1200 but we settled at 900. What a deal!!

Those are my big favorites from the week but I have a few more to share!!

Earlier this week, I created these Crock Pot meals and we feasted on them for a few days. So delicious!!

Also, the rain brought in some much needed cooler weather!!!

Needless to say, my scarves and boots and I had a long awaited reunion this week. 


Things are really coming together in our living room. I mean we are pretty much done! At this point, I am helping Shay paint the baseboards and trim so really it’s just the icing on the cake. We are also going to re-brick over the fireplace which will look really cool when we are finished! Then it will be time for me to raid Kirklands, Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, you know… 🙂

Retail Therapy Awaits Me,
