It’s raining today. Which means I’m inside. I haven’t turned the TV off from the news this morning which means I can hear some super excited lady screeling on The Price Is Right…ding! ding! ding! Turning…off…now…phew! Ick.

Being in here reminded me that I need to share some snaps with you of the inside of our little house. We’ve done a lot of work to Lil’ Spot in the last 4 years – a full scale renovation, actually. We still have lots of other projects to tackle – like renovating our basement, replacing our vinyl siding (which isn’t so bad, but is starting to show its age) and putting on a new roof (which is spitting shingles onto our driveway). Since the day we put an offer on this place we’ve talked about putting on a second floor someday. But that’s a far off someday.

We’ve done most of the fun stuff though: put a fresh coat of paint on all the walls, installed new carpeting in both bedrooms, gutted our bathroom, revised our floor plan, designed a totally new kitchen in a new location and built a deck. These days we’re just tweaking. And by we, I mean me. And by tweaking I mean driving my husband nuts moving things around.

I’m also psyching myself up for the basement project. Which I’m totally dreading because I’m scared of spiders. I know it’s pathetic but it’s the biggest thing keeping me from just doing it.

Here’s what it looks like in here these days:

    Love it, Maggie! I’m so glad you showed it— I tried to force your mom into taking me over to your house when I was there but we ran out of time. Love the blog!
