Christmas Came Early

Before I start I want to you take a look at these 3 pictures taken with Matt’s phone! This is what our “guest bedroom/Scentsy room” looked like yesterday morning! Pathetic I know!!!
Boxes, clothes, green couch, stuff and more stuff!!

This furniture is from my room at my parents and has treated me well for over 20 years!! And why yes that is an old old TV that I had in the Tri Delt house! haha

Ok, so you will have to bear with me as I explain this…..
So yesterday Matt stayed home from work and was being weird, I knew something was up (he says he can’t ever get things by me)….well my best friend Melissa asked me to dinner and Matt practically begged me to go with her, odd! SO at dinner I told Melissa that Matt was up to something and she was also kind of weird…..WELL I get home around 8 and Matt said I am getting my “Big” present early and I saw this Christmas sack…… And in it was a black fitted couch cover?!? what?
Well my Matty has decided to cease our “No more home renovations and repairs for a while” clause and he decided to turn our downstairs guest room (it was filled my my “single” stuff and looked like crap) and make it into our new home office, Scentsy room and TV room!! So get this yesterday in ONE DAY Matt ripped up carpet, laid down wood floors, re-did baseboards, moved our entire office furniture from upstairs to downstairs, moved the entire bedroom set upstairs, hung curtains, ordered more furniture for this room and bought a temporary couch cover!! This is NO JOKE, am I lucky or what??

Now this is only a start to this room, we have to buy an area rug, today Matt is letting me to go Best Buy at lunch and buy a new flat screen for the room, we have this awesome black organizational system on order for my Scensty and we have to buy & decorate the room! But can you believe that this was my guest bedroom one day ago??

Now…….this is our new guest room and all Matt had time to do was haul the stuff up. But we are going to start fresh with new bedding and weed out some of my old old stuff from my first apartment. SO here is the before and hopefully sometime soon I will be showing a after!

And now look at this…………ALL of this was in the guest bedroom!!! This is Scentsy stuff, Christmas stuff and just junk I had in there not knowing what to do with it all!! SO for now it is in our garage! ha! We have our work cut out but I could not be more pleased with Matt, his hard work and ideas to make our little house a home!

SOoo…can you believe that all that took place yesterday while I was at work? And I am super excited to go TV shopping today and to start scouring the Internet for new bedding!

Funny thing home ownership is…the work is never done! Thank you Matty…Muah!XOXO
