Because why not add to the chaos? Introducing Project Lake Crest!


      In the midst of the chaos that comes along with the holidays...and xmas shopping..and building a pool...and myself signing on to not one but two Christmas campaigns this year my husband and I decided lets end the year with one more fixer upper!

Introducing Project Lake Crest!

This flip will be a little different than our regular because this  property is fairly new.  We do not need to do any plumbing, electrical, roof, gutting of kitchens and baths...you get the picture.  However it still won't be easy since the place is in bad shape.  Like I have to shower as soon as I get home after we visit this place. I honestly don't know how this even happens to a home.  It's BAD. It needs all new flooring, paint (every square inch), mirrors, appliances, blinds, fixtures...all that good stuff.  We are keeping the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry and painting them.  We have never done this in a flip house before because honestly usually the kitchen cabinets are falling off at the hinges.  These however can be salvaged.  I'm sure something will come up...it always does...  but for now renovation officially begins tomorrow morning! 

Now for the good stuff. This home has a lot of potential.  It is in a great neighborhood with good schools.  The grounds are very well taken care of and from our town home you get lake views from EVERY single window.  It's quite beautiful and I think once you aren't distracted by the weird smells and gross carpets this place will truly be a little paradise for a family.  It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus an outdoor patio.  The layout is nice and open and the window placement is spectacular!

So come on in and check it out!

If you're not sure what you are looking at...believe me I wasn't either. They tried painting the concrete floors, they added some crazy sandy texture to the bedroom walls..including that roping detail hot glued all around the blue bedroom.  It will be a lot of work to fix this place up but like I said the potential is there.

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…

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…
