True. But it's surprising how many people can't see past paint and tile to the prospects of the house itself. I have a friend who got an incredible deal on a house because it was painted and wallpapered horrendously. Nobody could see beyond the red flocked dining room wallpaper and Pepto bismol pink bathroom.

True, every buyer is going to want to put their own stamp on the home. But there are a surprising number of people who will rule out a home because of too many cosmetic changes that they'll need to make, especially if it's kitchen and bathrooms. They say kitchens sell homes. And to be fair, repainting and tile work aren't necessarily cheap projects if you want it professionally done. It would be several thousand dollars. Real estate agents will tell you it's an easy fix, but they're trying to get you to buy a house. I'm assuming their target market is a young professional couples looking for a starter home like they were when they bought it. I think younger buyers are going to find the changes they've made to be rather dated. Maybe buyers won't care and will be willing to live with it until they can afford to change it. It really depends on the other homes on the market in their area and what they're up against. I stand by my assertion that black granite is the absolute worst in terms of keeping it clean. Every speck of dust and every fingerprint showed up on mine when I had it in a rental. I kept that in mind when we were house hunting.

I will say that I think their next home will be very nice and move-in-ready. There are a lot of modern, new construction homes in their area in planned communities that are very affordable due to the fact that they're in suburban Alabama.

Super cute. And Brook's head popping up at bottom of the screen reminded me of a Cullen stunt. ''Huh. Hi guys. What am I doin here?'' Lol

Not coming at this from a snarky angle, as C&K are the only vloggers I genuinely like, but didn't Katie say she planned to upload a video a week on KatieOnTheFlipSide not that long ago, or am I mistaken?

I would of kept the beer and put it on display somewhere. I know how cullen feels, kinda made me tear up too. When I see my late father's stuff I get emotional as well.

I haven't seen the vlog but I saw a pic on Instagram. Their counter/back splash is almost exactly the same as Oscar/Felix's on the new Odd Couple. Maybe it's a new popular thing. I think it looks nice but... I agree it's maybe not neutral enough for selling.

Cullen said his dad was living/staying with them in the basement room? Were his parents divorced?

It was when his dad had cancer and was doing chemo I think it was so someone was always close to him with grandberry working out of the home

I don't know if they were actually divorced, but they weren't together anymore. I know his dad was living out of state.

Forgive my ignorance here but it's a sign of respect to refer to yourself in the 3rd person? as in its more respectful for Sally to say "Sally is going for a walk!" insead of "I'm going for a walk!"?

As weird as it sounds, yes! As PoptheButterfly has said, it must be a cultural thing. People, especially the older generation, prefers 3rd person over first. Saying I or me (especially the non-formal version) is considered impolite. I still do that when talking to my parents' friends and colleagues and even relatives. The younger ones didn't do it that much tho. But then again, we're half a globe apart. Some differences are expected, right?

That's really interesting, I'm across the world from America too, so we are "neighbours" probably but its cool that through our gossip we learn more about other cultures

She did. According to insta they did film one this week. I wish she'd make more of an effort to do videos on her channel. I always enjoy them.

Katie doesn't film them herself either, but does it really matter? The content is hers alone for the most part. It used to bother me when she first started her channel that she always had Cullen there, I wan't used to it. But now it doesn't bother me because I realize how very much they like doing things together, just like best friends. And as far as editing goes, Cullen really enjoys it and has said so many times. I get the impression that Katie really isn't interested in editing. Maybe her time is better spent doing something else?

I'm behind on vlogs.... did you all catch that Grandberry was knitting a hat for someone to wear to the women's march in DC on Jan 21? Interesting that Cullen would keep that political statement in the vlog.

This is probably nitpicking. But did the knocking on the window scene seem totally set up? Cullen had the camera and was dancing around the kitchen with Brooks (who is way too cute, BTW) and then Katie, who was gone picking up Gaines from Grand-dolly's house, all of a sudden had the camera. And she was holding Gaines up to the window and filming (which sounds like a recipe for disaster anyway). I know it's nitpicking. But the whole acting surprised just didn't come off.
And what was that comment about how Katie was reading in a baby book, and "apparently Brooks is going to have a regression". Every baby is different. Some babies do things that the baby books say they will, but it's not a guarantee. Maybe he'll be fine. I'm not even sure what he was talking about! It was just weird.

They mentioned in the comments that they are planning on painting the kitchen a neutral color. I think this will help so much! In my opinion the green does not match the overall appearance of the kitchen and having a more neutral color will help sell the house.

I was delighted to hear it was for a "new friend" at the Million Woman March that she wouldn't know until she saw the hat on her. Gaines, and Katie too, are imo very lucky to have a woman in their lives to learn from by example. Upon googling the MWM, I was struck by such a hit women were taking in this election cycle. Good for GrandBerry!

I think the regression talk was an attempt to make an allowance for Brooks being fussy perhaps. So that's why he was dancing and boxing with him instead of doing the dishes. I think he said "Brooks wasn't having it." My kids are all grown, so I'm not up on a lot of the new parenting info and theories. I never heard of regression until Gaines was a baby. But I suppose Katie would know about that.

I think Katie was sneaking up on Cullen, going around the back, to check up on what he was doing with Brooks to be honest. I don't think it was set up because 1) It just has never really been Katie's style. 2) She had Gaines with her and she's likely to be a bust. 3) Cullen didn't really act too surprised. If it was set up, I think Cullen would've acted the fool playing it
up. I do agree with you though, Brooks is as cute as can be! When Katie behind Cullen, was moving him from one side to the other I couldn't help but grin from ear to ear as I was thoroughly entertained. And, as Katie pointed out, you can only talk about an old fridge for so long. Lol, it reminded me of when Katie was showing a clothing haul for Brooks as Cullen went on and on about something a few months ago. They make a good team!

Seemed to me like Brooks was teething, and that would explain fussiness. He was shoving _everything_ into his mouth. I know that's the age too, but the focus was suspicious for teething. It was into the mouth, gnaw, gnaw, gnaw...
Personally, I would give any dad a pass for dancing with his kids instead of doing dishes. The only bummer was that he was using the headphones so Brooks couldn't hear the music too.
Agree to disagree on the setup. Not that it really matters.

At 5-6 months for my youngest he drooled like crazy all the time. His fist and everything else went in his mouth and he had to wear a bib. No teeth came until 8 months though. It was just a phase.

I found it interesting that Katie didn't sit down and at least learn the basics the week her sister was over at their house learning how to edit. I get that editing is Cullen's baby but it never hurts to have a backup.
