The moment you've all been waiting for....  

Posted by Jenna

Ok, so probably not... but we've definitely been waiting for it. After six months of searching and hoping and praying... WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!


Here it is! I know... we don't love the arches either, but eh, give a little/take a little.


Here is our kitchen.. it is so spacious, I hardly know what to do with all the room.


The family room...


... and the itty bitty backyard for our itty bitty someday-son to play in!


The whole process has been eye-opening and we have learned a ton about being home owners! So far...

1. Picking out paint is a lot harder than you'd think (so is taping off a house)
2. Doorknobs- such an under appreciated necessity- and quite the chunk of change too!
3. Plumbers have a hard job!
4. No wonder they have stores like Home Depot and Lowes
5. Our families are the greatest blessings we have!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP!

Just some pictures of the painting process..

The "color inspiration" as they say on HGTV







We'll wow you with some before and after pictures someday when we get things put away and decorated :)
