Painted House!!

The reason that I have taken so long to get these pictures up is partly because I work 45 hours a week, but also partly because I wanted to get my house spotless before I took them. Well... it has been 3 weeks and every time my house is really clean, I forget to take pictures. So, look past the clutter and enjoy!
My favorite part of the house. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.

I just got this 30 gallon fish tank a couple of weeks ago. I love it! I have tropical fish in there like molly's, dalmatians, neon tetras, guppies, and I also have two semi-aggressive fish, Bala Sharks! Since I have started working at PetSmart, I have learned so much about fish, reptiles and small animals, so I decided to get my first fish tank. So far it has been fun.

This is the formal living room. We don't have any furniture in it yet. Hopefully we will get some soon.

The powder room in between the formal room and the family room.
This is the family room. My mom was nice enough to give us all of this furniture. It really goes good with our colors. This is a picture of the kitchen. I was standing in the family room. One of the reasons I love this house so much is because of how the kitchen and the family room are setup. It's possible to cook and do the dishes while still being a part of the family.

This is the china my Uncle LeRoy and Aunt Marion bought me. The cabinet it is in is actually an old gun case that was converted to a china hutch. It is the perfect size for this living room. My grandma has a bunch of Avon Red China she has collected for me over the years, but we are going to put that in the formal dining room when we get a hutch.
Our pantry filled with Sam's junk food.

These pictures are all upstairs. This is the hallway that connects the master bedroom, the two extra bedrooms, the loft and the extra bathroom.

Anthony and Aubrey's bedroom.

Little David's bedroom.

Their bathroom

Master bedroom. I will say this was really hard to get good pictures of this room! We have two closets, a walk-in and a regular sliding door closet. I love it!
This is the vanity. The bathroom and shower is connected to it, but it is small and I figured you all knew what a toilet and bathtub looked like, so I guess if you really want to see it, you'll have to come to our house! Here is the coolest room in the house, and the one you have probably been waiting to see. We decided to make our loft a fun loft, so we painted it University of Arizona red and blue.
Bear Down. Go Wildcats!

The long awaited house pictures!!

Here are the pictures of our new house! Sam & I would like to thank my dad's family for all the help they gave us with the house. We painted, and painted, and painted, and we are finally done thanks to them! (well we still have some touch ups, but hopefully we will get those done before Christmas). We will then need to put up pictures, decorations, etc. but I'm sort of waiting for my mom to get here because she is really good at that. Me, not so much, but that's why we have family right?
The first thing we did was pack up our old apartment, so here is Sam getting some very needed boxes out of the PetSmart recycle bin!

Then we moved all of our stuff to the new house. These are all "before" pictures of the house. I wish I would have done a little better job of taking more before pictures, but we were just so excited to get some color on the walls.

The formal living room and loft. This is what you see when you walk in our front door.

The family room and the kitchen. The sliding glass door goes out to our backyard.

Our empty pantry. Don't worry, it will never look like this again. Sorry the picture is sideways,the rotating button was not cooperating with me.

And the painting fun begins.....

This is the master bathroom, the last room in the house to be painted! After painting a 2000 square foot house, we are all sick and tired of painting! Although there is no pictures of me painting, I swear I did. Remember how I said we still have touch ups to do? Yea, that's from my bad painting!!!
I'm sure you noticed a lot of tan. We painted our house three different colors of tan, a burnt red color in the kitchen and bathroom, and of course UA red & blue in the loft....

Marana, AZ Roping

Here are some pictures from the Marana roping Sam, my dad, little David, and Raphael went to. Unfortunately someone has to pay for this bad habit, so I was working :(. I think either Staci, David's girlfriend or Brittany, Sam's sister took the pictures, and they came out pretty good! I'm mainly posting these for Isaac, since he had such a great time with the horse in Arizona. Enjoy!

Sam & Blackie

This is a really cool picture of David and my Dad. I want to get this framed and put it in David's room.

Raphael heeling a steer. I really like this picture too! After looking at all the pictures, I'm going to go with Staci as the photographer since most of them are of David!
