We are leaving bright and early for Alabama (not looking forward to a 5 hour drive - remember how I hate the car)! I had planned to do another post tonight regarding some Christmasy stuff, but I'm too tired/lazy to load the pictures off my camera. Instead I want to show you my BT (Before T) house. My parents ended up buying a house for me to live in while I was in school. It was such a cute little house and I loved every minute of living there! I had the best neighbors, who cut my grass for me when I was away for the summers and would always call me if there was a strange car in the driveway. What a difference neighbors can make! My friend who is getting married and I spent many days, nights and weekends studying in my little house, which was so much better than the FREEZING library. She would sit at the kitchen table and I would be in the study. My parents sold it this past year (at a loss - darn market) and it was bittersweet to leave. It was my first place that I lived with no roommate, so I really got to make every decorative decision, which I loved. Most of my stuff was hand-me-downs, but I was grateful to have them! It so funny how different T and I's house in comparison. My old house was very feminine and sometimes I do miss all that pink! Here are some pictures from when we had it on the market...
These pictures are from one of the very few snow days we had!
If you look closely you can see my cardinals!
I loved my backyard so much. I was in a subdivision, but had woods behind my house which made it really private and there were tons of birds!
Guestroom. Same pillows that are in T and I's house now. One of the few things that survived the move.
I loved my kitchen. When we were looking for houses, I saw this floor and loved it. I think you either love or hate this floor. Of course, mine was cheap linoleum, but I still thought it was great!
Laundry. I wish T and I's room was more open like this one. Its extremely tight and we have T's washing machines from college, which have no knobs - ugh.
Master Bath. The sink area was small, great for me, but it would have been small for a married couple. However, I had an AWESOME walk-in closet. Oh I could have lived in there! Our closet space is non-existent in our current house. I've currently taken over both closets upstairs and one of two downstairs.
Living area/Dining Room. I bought that table in an antique store and painted it white and recovered the chairs with lime green fabric. I love that table. Sadly, I don't think it ever saw a meal eaten on it, but it did see lots of study time! I wish it wasn't in storage, but maybe one day we will be able to use it again.
My parents forbade me to ever use the fireplace because I think they were conviced I'd burn the place down!
Well that is all! I'm spent and I've got to get some rest before this epic drive tomorrow morning! Hope everyone has a great weekend! xx.
