The Big Reveal

I’ve been looking forward to writing this blog for a long time now. And the time has finally come that I get to share pictures of our brand spankin’ new home!

God is so good!

I can’t wait to see the house evolve into our home. I know it won’t happen overnight, and that’s okay. Half the fun is the journey. However we are well on our way! So here she is as of now, with lots of room to make her “ours”. Enjoy and welcome to our home!

Get ready for more pictures than you’ll ever want to see of my house. Sorry there are so many of the same spaces. I couldn’t pick favorites!

We’ll start with the Exterior.





before 2



The front is fabulous and clean. We’re lacking landscaping, but it’s on the to-do list.


The back porch is a dumping ground right now. 5-7 estimated business days waiting on a trash can calls for a massive pile up elsewhere. Just pretend you don’t see it Winking smile And the garage is a mess too so there was no room for it in there.



Love, love, love our backyard. The pooches do too!


Let’s head inside. Listen to my voice, “Welcome to my crib”.


View from the front door.


This is seriously the kitchen of my dreams. Barstools are on my “want” list so I can return these temps back to the dining room table.




View towards living room.


View towards laundry room. Stairs to the bonus room are to the right of the door and the Master is on the right before the stairs.




Obsessed with my plate wall!


The TV will be mounted shortly. We’ve got it, just gotta hang it!


Update: My Dad and Cole got our TVs mounted today!! I can’t wait to decorate the mantle now!

Pretend you don’t see the trash out yonder piled against the window, the stuff I hid under the table that’s still clearly visible, and the TV that’s on for pictures…a design no-no. Ha!

To the bonus room…


Back down to the Laundry Room.

Here’s where I blogged about fancying up the WASH letters. 

Okay let’s head to the Master, er where the magic happens.


So plain in here. Ready to get some art on these walls!


This TV will be mounted too.


Update: My Dad and Cole got our TVs mounted today!! I can’t wait to decorate around it now.


Big blank wall…my wheels are turning as to what I’m gonna do with you. I would love to have an upholstered bench here too for puttin’ on kicks.


His and hers. So glad to have this again. Need ruggage.

Funny story – The first night we were in the house I got a splinter. I was standing at the countertop digging it out of my finger and it was getting to be dusk so it was easy to see in from the outside (we didn’t have blinds yet). I stood there for oh, I dunno maybe 3-5 minutes? And once I got that sucker out I looked up and saw I had an audience. The little girl across the street (I’m guessing she’s about 7) waved to me. I waved back. Good times, and I told David we needed blinds ASAP. Ha!

We’re slowing getting window treatments and blinds for the other rooms. Those jokers are not cheap!

End tangent.

Okay let’s slide on over to the other side of the house.

First up, my favorite room in the house. Not to be confused with favorite space, i.e. kitchen.

My craft room. Where the magic really happens. Love the view from the living room!


That back right corner needs help. A lot of it. We’re making progress here people, focus on the pretties!


Help. What do I do to hide the computer hard drive? I’m thinking of hanging fabric on that side of the desk. Brainstorming that one.


Those curtains are more BB&B table cloths. They are 120” but need to be hemmed.


The natural lighting is awesome in this house. A hobby-photographer’s dream!

Alright, down the hall we go…


First stop on the right is the future Nursery. Which will hopefully be occupied (and not with junk!) sooner rather than later!


But for now, it’s a catch-all room. Including Moosey Goosey. She’s almost ready to be left out during the day, but she’s proven us wrong every time we trusted her. Turd.

At the end of the hall is the guest bath.


I am so in love with the way this room came together. I ordered the extra long (96”) shower curtain off of Amazon. You can find it here.


Here I am demonstrating the monstrosity of this thing. I’m 5’5” for reference. (Don’t mind the PJs) It makes the already 9’ ceiling look sky high. Love!

And last but certainly not least, is our guest bedroom.


This bed seriously rocks my socks off. I’m jealous of my guests!


I’m also super in love with the dresser we picked up on the same Ikea trip that we got the bed. It was like Christmas this weekend getting to see everything that had been in boxes in storage!

Couldn’t not include the cuteness!

Okay, over and out. I hope this long awaited house tour was everything you’d hoped it would be!

Thanks for being awesome! Smile
