You find a job in a part of town you knew nothing about growing up.
While at said job people get to know you and find out you live around the corner.
Said people reference your home as "so and so's old house"
You don't know so and so... until a high school friendship is rekindled as she moves around the corner.
The so and so's become high schools friends, neighbors aunt and uncle.
Anywho thanks to the power of facebook you are offered the incredible and rare opportunity to connect with the so and so's and email back and forth.
Through your back yard new fence nightmare you find one of their childrens precious stepping stones accidentally left behind when they moved.
I am so excited to be able to message the wife of this couple and get her to fill in the blanks for me on our home we knew nothing about.
The people who bought from them were who got foreclosed on.
After several emails back and forth and her answering some questions for me she sent some pictures she took just before they listed their house on the market.
Enjoy seeing how it has changed in 8 years.
The bank made a LOT of changes between them and before we purchased. I kinda wish the kitchen was how it was when she had it.
Oh well.... to be renovated eventually!
This is the picture she sent me, i commented with the changes that have occurred since then.
Sorry its dark. but the kitchen dining area became our home office.
disregard the suitcase. haha
not sure who did what here but i LOVE her cabinet doors.
I dont have these pretty doors. mine are plain with an AWEFUL paint job to them!
and the cooktop and oven?? jealous!! this cheap thing I have doesnt cook evenly!!
And i hate my countertops, time to stop complaining.... there are people around the world starving and I complain about my faux granite countertops!
What am I the most jealous of??? she didnt have these HORRIBLE spanish tiles in her backsplash. one day I will get mad enough and just take a hammer to em!!
final share for this post...
remember my question about the random pole in the middle of the very back yard??
She answered it!
That was the side to the ladder for their above ground pool.
better picture from the spring when we added the flower beds.
Wait til this spring when we FINALLY landscape and put up a privacy fence!!!
I will probably cry because I will be so excited about the dogs not being about to run off!!!
More to come in a second post!!
