Walking on Sunshine...Uh I mean Laminate

Last month Justin and I made the decision to remove all of the carpet in our house and replace it with laminate floors (faux wood). Hardwood is too expensive - and not dog friendly, and the carpet was holding so much dust/dog hair we thought it would be best for my allergies - and for looks to go with the laminate. The kitchen, dining room, hallways, enteryway, living room, bathrooms, and laudry room are all tiled so we added the laminate in our bedrooms and our master closet. I am definitely glad we decided to do this now rather than wait a couple years because it looks amazing and now we get to enjoy it for years to come!! (hopefully with less allergies too). So I took some before pictures that morning, some during pictures of what the house looked like with all of our stuff crammed into the living room, dining room, and guest bathroom - and some after pics.

Of course I had to take one of my sweet Hunter
 
And Lexie had to follow me around the house while I took pics

 It's funny...we've only had these new floors for a month but after going through these pictures and looking at the carpet - I can't imagine ever having the carpet! I was a little skeptical about not having a "soft" or "warm" floor but I have no regrets - I love it!
