Home Update::Flooring

We were so excited to buy and move into our home, but the first thing that was on the hunny do list was ripping out that gawd awful musky green carpet! Neither Cody or I are carpet fans, especially when it's ugly stained and who knows what has been embedded in it. Carpet is dirty, no matter how many times you vacuum.
 
We were lucky enough to get a decent tax return this year, and we vowed to use it on a home improvement item. It was between flooring and a new oven range. Since baby C will be spending a lot of time on the floor, my push was clearly to remove the carpet. The stove will have to wait for another day.

Seriously, who looks at carpet samples and thinks...YES! This is the one!

It was the best use of our money! Its turned our house into a completely different home, to say we are both over the moon in love with it would be an understatement.
 
We still need to change out all the baseboards and trim, and doors...and eventually re carpet the bedrooms, tile the bathrooms...and yadda yadda.
