New House from A to Z!

For a lack of blog material, I’m stealing “Me from A to Z” from my sweet friend Lindsay! However, I want to switch it up to be “New House from A to Z”!

You know, features, things I’m excited about, and random facts about our new home because it’s all I can think about!

Aloof Gray by Sherwin Williams is a color I’m considering for the main living areas. Picking a gray is hard! Although I still love the gray from our last guestroom. So I can always resort to that one!

B is the first letter of our soon to be new street name!

Christmas decorating will be SO fun although I won’t be able to do it this year since we’ll more than likely be closing the weekend before Christmas.

Driveway. I don’t currently have a driveway. I have two parking spots and to have a little more car moving around space will be nice!

Empty closets! Well, this is a maybe. I may end up with a few empty closets which means…I can buy more junk! Haha. Kidding. Sort of.

Fireplace to cozy up to this winter. I’ve always been blessed to have a Fireplace wherever I’ve lived. To me, it completes a house.

Garage. Oh my I can hardly wait to have one again! For a workshop space and for parking!

Hand scraped hardwood floors will make my heart sing! Until I have to clean them constantly anyway!

Icemaker. I haven’t had one in so long. It’s the little things in life people!

Jack O’ Lanterns on the front porch is something I’m so looking forward to!

Kitchen designed by me. This one is rather scary as I strayed from the original plans and created my own thing. I hope it turns out like my “vision”!

Laundry room with some space to move around in!

Master bathroom with two sinks. Oh, the room!

New carpet. No more renter’s carpet! My carpet for being a rental was actually not bad, but do you really want to lay your face on carpet that who knows what has been on it by previous dwellers? Yuck.

Open floor plan goodness. I seriously can’t wait to park it at the island for stuff like painting my nails and get to watch tv at the same time.

Porches. Big beautiful spaces for lots of R&R.

Quality door knobs. Since I’ve lived in my rental, which I love for it being a rental, I’ve had 99 door handle problems. Well close anyway. At this point I think every single knob in my place has not worked or locked me out of somewhere at some time or another over the last year.

Rocking chairs for the front porch. I don’t have them yet, but if anyone wants to buy me two for a house warming gift, I wouldn’t turn them down! :)

Stainless steel appliances. Yummy!

Ten foot tall ceilings which means taller walls for me to hang my junk on!

Upstairs for junk hoarding David’s man room. Somehow I got talked into adding a bonus room above the garage. I think it will be worth it though!

Very excited I am! I couldn’t think of a V word. Sorry.

Water spigot out back! Oh to give the dogs baths without fearing they’ll run away! I currently only have one spigot out front and it’s a pain.

eXtra (okay I cheated on the ‘X’ letter) room for more of my junk!

Yard. A bigger one than my current place anyway. I’m not sure how big it’s going to end up, but as long as it’s bigger than what I’ve got now, I’m good!

Zero reason to complain anymore about not having enough room!


  1. So exciting!! I'm so gosh darn happy for you and David!

  2. Umm...well for G you could have said "Guest room for my sister-in-law to use when she comes to visit" :-)
    So happy for y'all love! Miss you!!

  3. Eeeek!!! I am SO EXCITED for you and David!! :)

    Also SUPER jealous that you will have a rocking chair front porch!! That's the number one thing on my list for our next house!

    I can't wait to see pictures!
