Should One Shutter?

The answer to that question, in our house's case, was a resounding YES! Take a look at our house before we even purchased it - it was the day we were having it inspected:

YIKES! Are those overgrown weeds or do we live in a jungle?! No, we don't live in a jungle (even though sticky humid Pennsylvania summers sometimes feel like we do). The previous owners of the house had up and moved outta state and neglected to care for the lawn and landscaping. You should see the backyard, but I'll spare you that monstrosity!

Anyway, here's our house now, well manicured, and dressed up with some purdy black shutters:

Ain't she a beaute?! What a difference just that addition has made. Next up on our exterior to-do list: Tear the roof off this seriously, we're getting a  new roof. Can I getta Amy Poehler "Oo-Ooo!" [any Baby Mama fans out there? :) ] Stay tuned for pictures of that project, coming soon to a local blog near you!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Such a difference those babies made. Job well done!

  2. P.S. You'll notice I changed my picture for...personal reasons. haha
