What should I do

I think my lawn is covered in mostly weeds, I need an opinion on if I should attempt to do this on my own or hire in a professional to do weed control so that I can seed and do whatever else needed. This is my first time doing any maintenance on lawns and I don't want my husband to come home to a messed up lawn. Here are som pictures to show you what I am dealing with. Also if someone can tell what type of grass I do have that would help as well.

How big is your yard?
What is your budget for herbicides and fertilizer, seed, straw and the like?
Do you have the time to devote to rehabilitation?
Remodeling your turf can be a major undertaking. Be sure you are ready to commit.
Otherwise call a pro.

Looks like mostly crab grass growing. I do see some blue grass as well.
Crab grass, dandelions and clover all this stuff spreads out and prevents the good grass(bluegrass)
from growing. This has to go before the new seed is spread.
