Packing- who me?

June 24th, 2012

I think, correction, I know that I am in some what of denial that we are moving in 3 weeks.

Denial in the sense that I have to pack.

Do packing fairies not exist?

This is what we’ve have been doing instead…

Way funner than packing if you ask me!

New House


June 10th, 2012

Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments about our {current} House.  We sure are gonna miss this place as it holds so many treasured memories.   Mr. vB and I had our first date in the dining room of this house.  Mr. vB also asked me to marry him in the living room of this house.  We came home as a married couple to this house. And we also came home as parents to this house. I keep telling myself that these memories will stay with us no matter where we live.  It’s time for the young couple that bought the house to make their own here.

Enough nostalgia- on to talking about our new place!

I’ve already started day dreaming about projects for the new house. Paint, Furniture, DEMO, etc!!  {totally not kidding on the demo- thought I would need a break from finishing up this place, but I’ pretty sure there will be some demo going on in the first month!}

I hit up one of my new favorite stores this week called Class and Trash.  It’s very true to its name.  Lots of cool old furniture and random things all mixed together.  I was short on time so had to peruse quick, but look what I found!

An old aluminum neon letter from a storefront.  It was missing the plastic cover, but I didn’t care.  How cute would this be in vannyB’s big boy room??

I took it to a local Neon shop yesterday called Uptown Neon.  Totally cool place.  The kind gentleman that owned the shop told me all about my letter and said that it was in great condition.  He even got the Neon to light up for me and it is a BRIGHT shade of red!  My plan in to spray paint the aluminium section of the letter a fun color and then have the guy attach a power source so I can plug the letter into the wall to light up!  The Coolest Night Light EVER is what I am imagining!!  I left the neon tubing with the guy so he could clean it up abit, and the plan is to go back in a week or so to have it all put back together!

Now the hard part- what should I paint the Letter??  I was thinking peacock blue or moss green but didn’t want it to look too patriotic or too christmasy..  Gotta think on this one.

Baby vB

It’s Finished!

June 3rd, 2012

Hello.. anyone still there?

Poor B&T has not had much attention from me lately. Apologies to my loyal reader{s}.

But it has been for good reason!!

Mr. vB and I have been sweating it out every day after work and every weekend to get our house ready to go on the market and guess what… It’s finished!!

We only had to do a few hundred finishing touches to complete.

Here’s one of my many to-do lists.  {I just love the satisfaction of marking something off!}

And I may be partial, but dang this house looked good when we finished!!!

And you know what?  I realized that I’ve never given you guys a proper tour of our house.

Well today is your lucky day..

Welcome to Casa vB.

{photos courtesy of our MLS listing- Sorry this house doesn’t stay clean for long so I had to take advantage of photos of a clean/neat house- enjoy!}

Well there you have it!

Feels good to have it finished.

But feels even better to tell you guys that Casa vB has a Pending Contract! Yup- that’s right. The house went on the market Thursday afternoon and by the next morning we were under contract!

We are looking to close in mid-July so I guess my next post needs to be about the NEW casa vB that WE have put a contract on!

Stay Tuned!
