house pictures

here are a few "before" pics- ie: cleaning & such

me sweeping...

the husband pulling up the capets...

and more...

me cleaning the kitchen...

the master- all un-carpeted...

wood stove. please notice the dryer sheets- lol.

the kitchen airing out...

the hallway...complete with the antique phone that they left us. yay!

a look from the slider...

one of our nests (outside-der)- complete with babies!!! 3 of them!

look at his little, fuzzy head ::squee::

cessna...not helping. ha.

the living room...you can see my lilacs ::stoked::

the antique spinning wheel that they left us ::swoon:: it's above the door.

and that's all for now. i haven't been back since tues but the husband goes daily to check on it. it's soooo perfect! and thanks to my uber cleaning skills, it no longer smells like dirty cig. smoke- sweeeet.
i forgot to take pics of the bathroom & downstairs & outside but in my defense, i was pretty busy.
ummmm- much to the husband's dismay there were no wood floors under the carpets in the b-rooms so him & his dad are going to install those this weekend. we'll also be getting the appliances & taking down the 3 walls of wallpaper in the bedrooms. then we'll paint & pretty much be done!
there's more but it's not all that interesting to type about- heh.
ok- more pics later!
Pin It!

Take it easy and be careful not to do anything to put your little one in danger, okay?

I'm envious though - I haven't had the physical stamina to do a good clean for AGES. Thank goodness for Precious, my cleaning lady :)

You look so cute in your cleaning outfit! :) The dryer sheets everywhere crack me up, I hope they work.

P.S. That little bird with his fuzzy head made me "Aww!" out loud!
