What we are up to....

Thank you so much for all your nice comments on our "big news!" we are so excited and still can't believe it!

So...I thought I would post what we have been up to! Well, not exactly what I have been up too..but what Michael is up to.... :)

When I went to work yesterday, Mike had a rain day and stayed home to take care of the upstairs hallway..

I can't find a before picture of the hallway just before he did it..with the chair and stuff...but here is one from when we moved in:
And here is one after we painted.
Nice carpet!!! (right!?)
We never pulled up the carpet because...we didn't want to put too much money into the house because we didn't think we would live here as long as we have....but with a baby on the way we have to make some changes to the house! And getting rid of the old yucky carpet is job number one!

We pulled a little corner of carpet up and saw nice wood floor..and crossed our fingers that it continued through the entire hall...this is what was under the carpet:
(This is the good part)
 This is where it is worn..for whatever reason. (I guess I have been going to the bathroom a lot lately....hahah)
 The bad news is that there are 2 broken boards that need fixing, and need entirely new there will be a difference in the wood. I think we are going to end up painting we did the downstairs hall,  office and closet room. I was a bit sad at first because I love the stained wood...but I will get over it! :) I am just glad the orange and gold carpet is gone! what colour should we paint it?
We will be painting soon I am sure. I will keep you posted and show "after" pictures!
Have a great weekend guys!!


P.S - The other jobs we want to tackle before baby comes are:

                           a) the carpet on the stairs...yikes!
b) The bathtub
        c) the kitchen floor!

and of course the nursery!!!

    Everything is coming a long so nicely! It'd be cool if you could just sand it down and restain them or something. But, whatever you do, it'll be perfect!! I have never seen a bad project from you!
