So sorry it has been a week! My husband and I have been in the process of moving and getting things settled in our new home. If you have ever loved you know it’s a process; if you haven’t moved you will learn one day- you have way more stuff than you think you so! It has been quite a stressful and somewhat fun process, but I’m glad my husband is here to keep it all as stress-free as possible and there to help! The couple we bought the house from were great to work with; we were able to start moving some things sooner and closing on the house was a breeze! The neighbors are great- we got a beautiful plant for our front porch and a 12 pack of Coronas and a lot of friendly introductions! It’s a great home!!
We moved in our house on Wednesday and it has been such a busy time! Getting clothes in and everything in its place is still not done, but we’re working on it. Most of wednesday was spent moving in some kitchen ware and everything going in our closets. We didn’t get a fridge, washer, dryer, bedroom furniture or a couch until Friday! We slept on the mattress on the floor, and now a bed has never felt so good!
This is Dillon (above in lime green)! He helped us so so much moving. He helped move us out, move us in, put together our table and tv stand, mow the grass, and help so much with yard work. He’s the bestest friend!! Along with him helping, Cody’s friends helped with moving and yard work too! We had a 4 man group working on it all with the yard. We pulled up bushes and put new mulch out and it looks awesome! They did so good!
Here is our dining room and kitchen! We have done minimal decorating, and we have plans to finish it making it a welcoming area! We love having friends over and Cody loves cooking, so this area will be used so much! For the 2 hanging pots, we plan on placing these on the wall and putting rosemary and thyme in them so we have it fresh in our house! We can’t wait to get this finished and have a nice dinner with friends.
Our living room is close to being done! We got a lot shopping for decor Sunday and it is coming along great. We love love love our couch! It is so big and comfy! Plenty of room for our friends and a family (one day!). We’re nervous about our light colored couch, but dinner will not be had on it! We have some work to do with the walls and the entry way and we’ll be set!
Here are a couple of other pictures from what we have done in the house! We have a bonus room upstairs that will eventually be a playroom for our children. The guest bathroom! Our bedroom furniture is my favorite. I love the grey wood and our new comforter set! I cannot wait to finish all of our final touches, and make this house a home!
I will share some of my decor and furniture finds soon!!
Enjoy Life With A Side of Laurel!
