Looks a little better don't you think.
On the front porch my husband got a little creative on the floor and did a really neat pattern. (at least I think so) At the time I didn't want him to wast time making it look neat I just wanted him to rush on it and slap the wood down. But luckily for me he didn't listen. You can't really see the whole design in this picture.
On the chimney we stuccoed over it then painted it.
We did pretty much all the work our selves. Mainly because it was cheaper. Not just because we wanted it. But I have to say it feels so much more rewarding after putting all that work into something so ugly and coming away with something so much more beautiful and being able to say you did it yourself. So it has a little bit of you in it.

I know I'm bad at posting but It seems I cant get a moment to my self lately.
Here's a before of the outside of my house. We actually finished painting it last summer but I haven't gotten around to posting it. (I know I'm bad) Any way the front of the house isn't a complete before (there is a little bit of new paint on it)
I know it looks bad
This is part of the front porch.

WE WERE HAVING STORY TIME LAST NIGHT AND CARTER PULLED SOMETHING FROM HIS MOUTH. WE BOTH THOUGHT IT WAS A PIECE OF RICE (BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT WE HAD FOR DINNER). WELL IT TURNS OUT IT WAS A TOOTH. IT WAS CRAZY SMALL. SO CARTER GOT TO HAVE HIS FIRST TOOTH UNDER THE PILLOW EXPERIENCE LAST NIGHT. HE RECEIVED 4 QUARTERS FOR HIS MICRO SIZE TOOTH.

I WAS WATCHING LUCY (MY SISTER LINDSAY'S BABY) TODAY AND SHE WASN'T FEELING WELL, SHE HAS THRUSH. SO I WAS DOING THE LAUNDRY AND I LAID HER IN THE LAUNDRY BASKET WHILE I UNLOADED THE CLOTHES FROM THE DRYER. I LAID SOME OF THE WARM ONES ON HER AND TURNED ON THE WASHER AND DRYER. I THINK SHE LIKED THE SOUNDS. (TRY NOT TO LOOK AT THE MESSY LAUNDRY ROOM)
I LET HER SLEEP THERE UNTIL HER MOM CAME BACK. (AND DON'T WORRY I CHECKED ON HER OFTEN)
