Our Deck Makeover

If you love the outdoors as much as me and my family, you NEED an inviting space outside. I shared some of our back yard makeover in my last post, but this post is featuring our deck!

As I mentioned before, we’ve been settled in our home for over a year, but we weren’t utilizing our nice fenced in back yard! I decided that it was due time to create a space for the family to enjoy! With the kids having their new play space, it was important to me that Joshua and I have a space to relax, as well as entertain!

We kicked off our finished deck project by hosting our first college game day. The kids were entertained and the adults had lots of viewing options. It was a win win and we are more than happy to have this project under our belts!!

I’m going to be linking products under the photos below in case you’re interested in any of them for yourselves!!

Thanks for stopping by, it really means a lot! I love sharing these things with everyone 🙂

The Flip House

Let me start out by saying that as easy as HGTV makes it look, flipping a house is no joke! Since Joshua started into the real estate business with his brother, we have done some renovations to smaller units, but THIS, this is our first full flip baby. If you would like to test your marriage and/or relationship of any kind, then I encourage you to flip a house together. This particular project has taken about 3.5 months with a lot of lessons learned along the way. There have been laughs, there have been tears, there’s been sweat, there’s been changed minds, mistakes and corrections, hugs, joy, frustration, agreement, disagreement, and the just about any other emotion that exists. However, when it is all said and done, the hectic journey is soon forgotten and the finished product was so very worth it.
