Paint - A love/hate relationship

We're painting the exterior of our house! We've actually already started...Well I've stared painting - and Mike is putting a new back door on as we speak! Last weekend my grandparents and my mom came over and we painted the exterior of our garage! My Mom and Grandpa helped paint and my Grandma made sure we were all fed and well hydrated. Mike was up north checking out his brothers brand new cabin with him. Check out the new color!
Painting the exterior is a love/hate relationship for me. It's going to be a lot of work - but I'm going to LOVE the chagne of color!! For those of you who don't know - This is what color our house is...
Yeah...peachy, pinky, salmon-y... you choose the right adverb.'s the view from the living room. I love looking out this window since the garage is already painted, I just pretend that the house is done too!

Here's what the house looks like from the back. You can see where Mike has been scraping off the painted cinder blocks by the back door.

And speaking of the back's a picture of what Mike's doing to put in a new door.

Ok, enough of the dirty stuff. Let's move on to the prettier things. Here's a close up shot of our front door and house numbers.
For Christmas last year, my parents gave us a super cool new house number sign! It was handmade especially for us by my mom's friend's sister (get it?). I love it and can't wait to take down those ugly numbers and put this up!
