New House News: Sold!

Hey everyone! Hope your Monday has been good so far! As you may have known through various videos, tweets, and Facebook updates- my husband Tyler and I are buying a house! We closed on our new home today, and by the end of May- we'll be totally moved in! In between now and then, we're doing some painting and making some minor changes here and there. Overall, we are EXTREMELY happy with our decision and can't wait to settle in! This home is basically one town over (15 minutes) from where we currently live. The house we chose was house #3 in my Em's World House Hunt video. We already met a nice neighbor that took this picture for us!

As we go through the whole process of getting the house ready, moving out of our apartment, and moving into our new place- I'm not going to have as much time to make videos as usual. My days will be pretty much packed with going to work, and going to the house to work some more! But I do want to blog along the way so I can one day look back on our house purchase, and also so those who might be interested in buying a home of your own can see what it's all about! If you've already been there & done that- then maybe you can offer me some advice! :) Snapping a few pictures and throwing together a blog is just a quicker way to stay in touch! I will do videos whenever possible though! :)

Here's some exciting news- inside this house will be a room completely devoted to Beauty Broadcast! Check back with the blog to see the transformation. It will be getting a great paint job and will serve as the perfect setting for videos. That will include improved lighting for those of you who can't stand my current lighting for tutorials. (I've just been doing my very best with what I have, y'all!) I have so many plans for the new home of Beauty Broadcast- can't wait for it to get done so you can see it! We're also painting the light green entry-way (shown below) a shade of pale yellow... and our dining room will be a gorgeous deep red shade called "Sangria" (one of my favorite beverages as well!) Other than that, we're not doing a whole lot of painting.

This house has a great deck and a really big backyard. Looking forward to the day I can put my feet up and relax! Yesterday we started taking some things down in the apartment... basically all the pictures and decor. It honestly brought tears to my eyes! Even though this house is a big step up from our little apartment, I got really sentimental because the apartment is our first home. We've made a lot of memories here, and a small part of me is going to miss it! Tyler, of course, thinks I'm a little weird :)

Thanks for reading this edition of New House News! I'll try to keep you updated as much as possible, and thanks for bearing with me as I try to continue to produce as many makeup vids as I can! :) Love you all,
Emily

  10. EM! i am so happy for you and Tyler! Congratulations! when hubby + I bought our house, leaving our tiny apartment, and First "Home" together was emotional and bittersweet for me. I took pictures of our apartment and put together an album of "Then & Now" adding new pictures of our house and the repairs or "upgrade changes" that we did together. Maybe you could do something like that too!

  36. I totally feel you on the sentimental about moving part! We are moving out of our first apartment in October and already I am starting to feel sad. We are also moving out of the state, so it's a double whammy. :( But we'll always have the memories, and the future is bright!

  38. You only need a little house makeover. Glad to see that you've picked a modern type of house.

  39. That looks like a professionally constructed house. There's no way that house wouldn't sell. I'm excited to see the renovations that you guys will gonna be doing and put your own personal touch into the house. Good on you.
