We Aren't Moving


For those of you who knew we were thinking about moving, we aren't. We tried to sell our house by owner for a couple of months, without much luck. Then I decided it was time for me to learn to be happy no matter where I live, so that is what I'm focussing on. Dave and I have always loved out ward, so I'm focussing on the positive. I told Dave that I would stop trying to move for a couple of years, but that I needed new flooring in our living room. Dave hometeaches a contractor so we hired him to come replace our flooring, and we love the way it turned out!

The other great thing about getting our floors redone is that the surround sound wires no longer run up and down my walls, but go under the flooring! They have been an eye sore since we put them up more than 4 years ago. If you look closely at the before picture you can see them above the sliding back door. We are still looking for a bigger area rug, but it may take months to find one that we like.

They look great! Bill does do great work He did the floors with Justin in our last house. It is nice to have a father-in-law that is so handy. I love the color you chose!

I LOVE the floors! I can't believe how different it makes your house look. I'm also jealous you got to hide your surround wires... ours are all over the place. Apparently they make the house look cool or something like that.

I have to say Carly, your carpet actually looked really good too, by the way! It looked completely stain-free.
