We’re back in action! It has been a crazy TWO month hiatus from our last update! OMGosh!
Since we’ve spoken:
We hit a new debt landmark: Four digits! Unless “murphy” moves in, we should be out of debt except the mortgage by the end of 2016. Yeah, baby!
We had some plumbing issues in the old bathroom (now the guest/Airbnb bathroom) that prompted a small (on our scale) renovation. More on that soon.
And, Bertha made an appearance on the show, Dexter (sarcasm). But, don’t worry, she’s still kickin’!
More about Bertha and the small reno update coming soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
If you’ve been following us in 2014, you remember our post Inspired in 2014 where we talked about our fabulous visit to Aaron’s folks’ house in Iowa. Aaron’s parents are wanting to do some upgrading to their already wonderful home this Summer and are in the “brain-storming” part of the process. We had some really fun discussions about kitchen and bathroom ideas, but some of our focus was on the existing grass cloth wallpaper in the living room. The questions were, “Is it dated?” and “Should it be removed?”
I wasn’t bothered by their grass cloth at all and they seemed to be excited by the possibility of keeping it up. After all, who wants to spend the time (and money) to take down wallpaper? If it is clean and not an obnoxious pattern or color, why change?
Since we left Iowa, I have been seeing beautiful examples of grass cloth everywhere! I’m not sure if it was the idea of it being planted in my mind, or an up-rising of an old trend, but I thought I’d share some photos with you. Enjoy!
