Meet our master bedroom! 😍 It has a walk in closet and these two great windows. The floor will be finished later this week, we'll paint soon after that. This weekend was a busy one - we're all moved out of the 2nd floor! Watch my story to see where we're sleeping until we head to my parents. You'll see I can't keep up with posting our progress. 😂🛠#whbs1910house

The stairs under the carpet were in great shape! 😍💃🏽 (See my story for more views of the space.) Next week they'll finish the upstairs floors. Since there is a bit of wear, we'll have the treads match the floors and landing (sanded + poly, no stain), and leave the risers and railings dark. Maybe one day we'll add white, but I'm not ready to paint the dark, rich color! I'd love to hear your thoughts, what would you do? #whbs1910house

It's officially fall in our backyard. 🍂💛🍁 her little blonde pony tail has me all 😍. Are the leaves changing and falling where you live?

How's this for a surprise? Not one, but three layers of dusty, old carpeting on the stairs. 🤢🙈Doug and the kids are off today, so we're pulling up the remainder of the 2nd floor carpet to prep for getting the floors done. I have to say, minus the grossness, carpet #1 to the right is kinda pretty. 👌🏼😂 #whbs1910house #fixerupper #reallife #renovation

Here's another look at the boys' room along with a before picture, you can see the bare floors peeking out a bit. We cleaned all this up and our room is all moved in, so now so we can pull up carpet and paint that room. I joked with the boys that we might take this room from them, 😂 it's so light filled! (Ours has a big closet though so 🙅🏽I'm not ready to lose that to them, haha!) Thank you for all your encouragement on the last post and in your messages. I feel like despite the setbacks, it is a best case scenario and I feel at peace with everything. 💕 #whbs1910house

The third bedroom is painted and ready, 😍 next up is our room. Trying to decide if I should do the same bright color, or something dark or moody... what do you think? 🤔 Our life lately is chaos, it's been impossible to keep up with things. (Let's not even talk about laundry or dishes 😂) I'm on Day 15 of the #autoimmuneprotocol and the issues I've been struggling with this pregnancy are fading. I feel great. I broke my foot a week ago, but I'm listening and resting. Doug has been rocking it, working all day and working on the house at night. The kids have been troopers, helping out and rolling with the changes. Our families have stepped in to help us. We're doing it, it's coming along, and I'm so thankful. #whbs1910house

One year ago, I shared these teal pumpkin project candy-free treat holders! 🎃👻I painted a pre-cut faux pumpkin and filled it with glow sticks, light up rings, punch balloons, fart putty (😂🙈), and more. All found in a party section or Michaels. I was surprised, more kids wanted glow sticks than candy!! It was an easy way to do something special for kids with allergies in our neighborhood. #tealpumpkinproject

2nd bedroom - finished! 😍 Video of the space in my story. The floors will get sanded and a natural poly finish in a few weeks. This will be the girls' room. I wanted light and bright, and it is! #whbs1910house
I'm shopping kid free with a latte in my hand for last minute touches for my Sept #MichaelsMakers post. So many pretty things! These cinderella pumpkins have me all 😍😵 #spottedatmichaels #sponsored
The door is painted. 😁👏🏼💙I was hesitant, this pregnancy has started to take a toll on my health. I need to save my energy for important stuff. But when you're living in chaos, overwhelmed, wondering if you bit off more than you can chew, little things like this get you through. It's nice to smile when I pull up, instead of seeing a never ending to do list. 😄💕Wreath from @michaelsstores!! #michaelsmakers #spottedatmichaels #whbs1910house #sponsored

I did it. I have a million things I should be doing instead, but I did it. Haha! I think I needed some paint therapy. 💙Getting ready to put up a second coat. #whbs1910house
I announced it in my story a few weeks back, but not here! 💕🎄 I'm expecting baby #6, due Dec 22! We are overjoyed. You may be wondering - yes, this was planned (and hoped for!) and we knew about the move at the time. ☺️ baby is doing great, I've been more tired than ever and embracing it. Naps and coffee are my friend, haha! (📷 credit: my talented friend, @no2pencilblog)

Progress. 💕One more coat and the walls and ceiling in this 4th bed/office are done! Swipe to see the before, hiding beneath the sagging paneling was crumbling plaster. We stabilized it with bracing and topped with tongue in groove planks. #whbs1910house also, thanks for your prayers and kind words on my story earlier! We have family outside of Houston who were close to evacuating, his cousin is high risk and 29 weeks. They are back home, and the waters near them are subsiding. 🙏🏻 I added a link to my profile of places directly in Texas accepting donations. Consider helping and continue prayers for all those affected.

Doug is a pro at TCB (taking care of business). Yesterday afternoon he started putting up these tongue-in-groove planks in the office/4th bedroom, look at it now!! 😍🙌🏼 I'm off to pick up white paint for the whooole room and try to figure out colors for the rest of the upstairs. And meander about HD kidless. 😂 #whbs1910house

Little by little I'm chipping away at things. Unpacking, making it functional for now. What do you think? Here's what the office looked like after about 20 minutes of attention. (swipe to see the before) We've decided to either paint or refinish the floors and are moving forward with upstairs work. In my story, see what we uncovered in this 4th bedroom/office and what our next steps are. 🔨#whbs1910house

First day of school for the big kids called for a walk with the little guys! ❤ Luke starts half day PK tomorrow. I can't believe we have kids in K, 2nd, and 3rd this year!

If this was under your old carpet, would you go with painted floors or new carpet in the bedrooms? 🛏 After the foundation work is done, we're going to paint all the upstairs walls and finish the flooring. We were originally thinking carpet, but uncovered these underneath and they're not in bad shape! 😍 For as much work as our downstairs needs, the upstairs is awesome. It'll be nice to have it all settled up here before the major work on the 1st floor begins. See a little peek at the boys' room in my story, thank you @magnoliasimple for the idea! 🏡#whbs1910house #paintedfloor #oldhouse #1910

Advice, please! Every time I see our faded, hunter green front and back doors, it chips away at me bit by bit. Maybe that's dramatic but 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 Doug wants to hold off on painting because they will be replaced in a year or so. A year or so?!? That's a long time. Would you go ahead and paint these? I have the paint sooo... #whbs1910house
