Back in July, we all went back east for a wedding. One of my husband's best friends got married, and he was the best man. Anyone ever been to Louisville, Kentucky? Beautiful! The wedding was one of those old-fashioned Southern affairs, the kind that started on Wednesday (seriously, with the bachelor party) and didn't end until Sunday with the after-wedding brunch.
Normally I would have been over it. Know what I mean? Five days of wedding activities. Even with my own wedding, I didn't need five days of partying! However, I was greatly aided because all these parties were in a tiny little community of Louisville called Nitta Yuma.
Now, if I just had an extra $2 million lying around to buy this dump (ahem) in Nitta Yuma:
Yep, it's for sale. Needs to be renovated. Sounds like heaven to me! Click here if you feel like seeing more.
Needless to say, I have the renovation bug again! Right now we live in a house that was built in 2007. It's ridiculous that I would want to renovate because, really, there's nothing to renovate. So I kind of invent little projects to keep myself busy. But I think I am realizing that I am, by nature, a fixer and a flipper. Give me something old and ugly and let me bring it back. My husband is not thrilled with this realization on my part, because generally it means a lot of work on his part. And no, we're not planning on moving anytime soon. But when we do, I'll be hoping for a fixer-upper.
What about you? Are you an old or a new house kind of girl?
