To my 1st Flip house... Come on in!

Enjoy the amazing transformation of befores & afters. Now, remember this isn't my dream home... I was hired to upgrade, clean, improve & transform this property for the BEST. Oh we did improve it drastically. It's night & day looking from all of it's old pictures. Love it! {I could actually move in} I can't tell you how much "fun" this project was... Bill & Andy THANK YOU so much for trusting me & going with pretty much all of my ideas {except: didn't get the front door - black & dutch}.

Here are my 1st flip post & updates from the beginning to now:

Well... Now you've seen it! But, I do have to say since it was put on the market the 27th of January.... it already had 8 offers. I have a feeling it had more coming in when I spoke with Bill... So this House is on the fast road to being SOLD!

Shhhhh... I already got the 2nd flip house.
Check in tomorrow {Sunday, Jan 31st} to see all of those before pictures!

So I may climb the golden stair!

Isn't she pretty... She arrived last week {to my house}. I'm so in love with her! The kids have welcomed her with open arms... Thank goodness not with pens! We're loving every minute with our new dresser {bundle of joy}.

thank you

I would like to thank Layla & Kevin over at The Lettered Cottage very much for posting one of our dressers on their BLOG. I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw the e-mail from Layla. Take a peek at what she wrote to me {simple, but meant so much to me!}:
Hi Alexandra!
I'd LOVE to use the photo of your highboy in a post I'm writing for our blog tonight. Would that be okay? I will link back to you of course! :-)

I couldn't breath, my heart was racing & I had no one to talk to. Of course I called mom... She didn't answer. Ahhh I turned to my 21 month old... Screamed & gave him a big kiss. He thought mommy was playing a new game & started running around the house screaming {nice}. Then I called my husband because I just needed to talk to someone... WOW he actually answered the phone. I told him everything. He was pretty excited for me, but had to go asap. I still needed to express my excitement.... Melissa was my next victim.... I text her. She completely understood my feelings.

My first real thought after I calmed down was, How did the Lettered Cottage find me in the BLOG world... How??? Well, I'm so happy she did! Sorry to sound crazy, wild & out of control... For some it's not a big deal, but for others {like me} it's a huge deal. I'm having a great time in the BLOG world. I hope you like what I have to offer... Comments are always welcome!
