TBT came early for me. Had to repost this because the life was real. I was going to see @poshbeautybarofcharlotte for a 3:30 pm app. ☎️came in at 2:55 on 85 S to say they accept your offer. Let's put the 💵💵down. 🤦🏾♀️ Things became real ... After all the No's cant find my price range, I don't have the money.... house is gone you move to slow. The market is crazy. Talk about no saying no I don't have it...... Let me cancel this appointment. Then 08.30.17 I closed on my 1st🏠 age of 29. Had to look back at this photo and say TRUE in my @hairweavekiller voice. @luxuriouscredit #lifeofahomeowner#homeowner#under30 Let me call @poshbeautybarofcharlotte to re schedule that apt 😝😝😘#dontbemad#securethebag 💰
Most productive weekend ever?? Saturday: Up to date on my online class, taught kickboxing, worked the volleyball game, graded homework in my classroom, vacuumed the house, swept and mopped, dusted. Sunday: took recycling, grocery shopping, swept the front and back porch, raked all the leaves in the front and back yard, cleaned my car (vacuumed and scrubbed), about to make food for the week and then give pepper a bath.
Phew. I need a beer and a massage! #lifeofahomeowner#arethesemyweekendsnow#whathappenedtorelaxing#imexhausted
Stuff around the house is coming along great!! Siding on the sunroom and the side of the garage is done, the soffits are done, and Jim is almost done with the mulch!!! Grandpa will be back next week to finish the front of the garage. I think once the siding project is done in another 2 years (hopefully), we'll work on some new fences lol!! #lifeofahomeowner#neverdone
Is "adulting" today & being very productive 💁🏻 Cleaning the grill, organizing the house, laundry... Taking a lunch break before getting back to it & continue with the never ending saga of laundry & dishes!
And so it begins 🛠🚰 We planned on having the new countertops installed before Porter got here, but we had a misunderstanding with the company that made them, and those plans got pushed back. 🙄
BUT they're ready now!!! So we're chugging the ☕️ and 🍫 superfoods and getting it done this weekend!
Gardening day!! One thing you may not know about me is that I often get ideas in my head of projects I'd like to work on, but get ridiculously overwhelmed knowing just where I should start. The front flower bed is one of those projects. 😳 Weeds everywhere, grass growing into the bed, thistles galore and just an all around pain. Well, after reading a chapter on just this thing in the Bad@$$ book, I remembered that she recommends to take something (whether it be a task, work, life, etc) and break it into chunks so that your brain can process it easier. Bingo! Start with one part of the flower bed and work through that first. Just what I needed 🙌🏻 So, the starting point for today was the edging! I'm pleased with how it's turning out!! 💃🏻
2017 is my year of a very hefty special assessment on my building to re-waterproof a complex corner of my building.... So, instead of exciting vacation pictures to share this year, I have these special memories (😳😉).... I'm quite pleased that I'm one of only a couple of people who are brave enough to park underground right now! #specialassessment#yearofthecondo#condolife#lifeofahomeowner#waterproofing
Front of the house finished. Dust put the railings back on while I figured out how to put the siding back on. I had to recover from the windows to the other side of the doors, one more strip needs to be replaced above the doors but I will do that once everything else is torn apart and put back together. Also we will be adding black around the doors to match the rest of the house. #momshandy#ratherdothisthanhousework#renos#lifeofahomeowner#vinylsiding#duradek#homerenovation
