Flipping Out!

Okay guys so our latest house flip is finished and I couldn't be more happy with the end result! We bought this house in January and slowly renovated due to (the Condo Flip) and the fact that part of the buying disclosure stated we couldn't resell the house in under 3 months time.  This house is in a great established neighborhood and we were so excited to give the neighbors a beautiful corner house to look at instead of this eyesore! 



A few of the issues with this house besides an entire gut of the inside were
1. No AC unit
2. No hot water heater
3. Sketchy electrical job in the sunroom and laundry room
4. HUGE leak from an open pipe that was dumping water outside front exterior (causing rotten wood)
5. Water pipes not correctly connected in shower
6. Ceilings needed some new beams to support fans and lights in each bedroom.
7.Wall between the two bathrooms taken down to make one large bathroom with two toilets (looking at eachother) Haha! People are crazy!

OKAY here's a look at the BEFORE pictures.

Now for the great news! We have been getting calls and walk ins at this house since we began renovations.  As of today the house is under contract (at full listing price!) and it never even made it to the market! That's a first for us! Time to start looking for our next project!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
