3. I am completely and utterly terrified of opening up crescent roll packages. My husband has to do it for me every time and I literally have to leave the room.
5. I LOVE to snow ski. I have been skiing since I was 2 years old and won a national competition when I was 6. Here is a picture of the hubs and I on our Honeymoon at Squaw Valley (Lake Tahoe). We've agreed that if we ever make it big, a house out there will be our first big purchase. A girl can dream, right?!
6. I am OBSESSED with the show Friends and own all 11 seasons on DVD. I know, I know—it’s 2012, but I still think it’s the best show that’s ever been on the air. During the school year, my nightly ritual is watching an episode or two before bed to relax me.
8. My husband and I are extreme DIYers and would love to have our own reality show. We bought a fixer upper home three years ago because we found a good deal in a nice neighborhood and could feel the potential. In three years, we did a complete tear off roof, gutted and redid the kitchen and first floor, redid the basement and fireplace, gutted and redid a bathroom, installed new hardwood floors, painted every room, and put in new doors and trim throughout the house. Oh, we also paid to have carpet installed on the top and bottom floors. When I look at before pictures of our house, I can barely recognize it. NOTHING is the same except the other two bathrooms, which the previous owners redid a few years ago. It was a ton of work, but we love the end result and the fact that it feels like "our" home. Here are some fun before and after pics.
|kitchen before- don't you love my popcorn ceiling and hand-painted vines?!|
|fireplace before- can you tell the house was built in the 70s?|
|bathroom before- eek!|
|bathroom after (can't see in this pic, but the toilet is tucked in to the right of the sink)|
