Six years ago, when Jut and I opened our joint checking account and saw everything together for the first time, we realized that combined we were almost $70,000 in debt. Between two car payments, numerous student loans, and a mountain of maxed out credit cards, I can’t even imagine what our credit scores looked like back […]

I meant to take the month of January to catch you up on all the house projects we completed in 2013. Obviously I didn’t get it done last month, but hopefully I can get them all posted in the next couple weeks! The next big project I’ll tell you about is in our dining room! […]

I finally took some house photos! (To be honest, I had no choice, as we are making some big changes this weekend, and it was my last chance to get some before pictures!) So I don’t bombard you or my site with photos, I’m only going to post some of the rooms. Our spare bedrooms […]

As most of you know, the seller flipped our house in the last year and a half, so it was move-in ready when we bought it. We have noticed, however, that he sort of lacked attention to detail, and there are a lot of things that bother us. We have created a list of things we’d […]

Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last posted! I guess blogging falls down the priority list when you try to buy a house and plan a wedding within 6 months of each other! Also? We’re only 5 months and 10 days away! Unbelievable. So what have we been up to so far in 2012? The short answer […]
