{a sneak peek at our 2nd Renovation! OMG we started in 06'!!}

{Our home after the 1st renovation in 01'}

our bungalow in the city....this was taken after we finished w/ our 1st renovation...we didn't work on the exterior much..we painted and did a bit of landscaping...we began renovating our home in 2001, then in 2002 we expanded our lil family! i "told" (witchy me) my husband we either have to move by the time she is 4 or we are going to have to expand! well, that's what we have been doing for the past 2 years! i know 2 years..maybe 3??! we keep stopping and taking breaks...i don't think we will ever finish..ha! and w/ me being a decorator..i change my mind every month! lol

sunroom/waste of space? lol we added double french doors, painted, added ceiling fans & resurfaced the original hardwoods
breakfast/dining room

this is a shot from across our breakfast/dining room...we added a lil office nook.

we gutted the kitchen to bare studs and added all new cabinets, doors, appliance, travertine tile, light fixtures...etc....

{getting started}

as i have posted i'm am trying to get my online biz organized & started! it's a very exciting time for me :) so far the hardest part for me is choosing a name.....i had SOO many thoughts and ideas but, none seemed to to explain what i'm all about...i have been so confused and unclear! i found myself not being able to sleep pondering over words all nite long. i felt a lil
COOOKY at times.....calling my husband everytime i put a few words together to get his thoughts..i'm sure he was soo over me calling him..but, isn't this what husbands are for? lol sweet guy I JUST LOVE HIM!
anyways, back to figuring out a name.. the day i FINALLY decided on a name something happened...i got a call saying "I was going to be laid off my part-time job" :( so, my gut was to go w/ the that paticular name since 1 door was closing an another opening right?

NOW i'm second guessing myself??? i've let it out of the bag and for those who know think it's pretty good...we will see!
more later.....until then xoxo's nan
