The FULL fixer upper reveal! Our biggest renovation to date!


You may remember back in February we bought a new fixer upper.  Typically our homes don't take this long to renovate and sell but this baby was a doozy!  We had to literally take the entire house down to the studs.  This home needed a whole new plumbing and electrical system, HVAC and roof.  We also needed one million and one permits and inspections every step of the way.  The house was overgrown with trees and bushes, no driveway, and... well... plain old disgusting.  NOT livable by any means and in the beginning we even shopped around the property to builders as a tear down.  The lot is oversized and on a corner in a very desirable part of town.  After a few nights of thinking it over and running the numbers we decided to go for it.  It's a sold stucco home and we were ready to restore it back to a beautiful Florida property.

Sorry some of the "before" pictures are shots straight off my camera!  A lot of you dubbed this house the "house of horrors" when I would share on my IG account. HA!  It was definitely pretty scary.  




















I will try to list as many of the materials and products used below...after all the pictures.  The number one stunner of this home (in my opinion) has to be the beautiful wood tile I found at Floor&Decor.  It looks SO much like wood and is a little more a sq foot than we typically spend but totally worth it.

After A LOT of work, headaches, sleepless nights, money, time and patience.....here are the "After" pics. :)

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…
