Movin On Up

So I haven’t posted since I first started this blog because I have been SUPER busy. Two weeks ago we bought and moved into our first house!!! The past two weeks have been an insane whirlwind of unpacking, painting, curtain making, learning a new grocery store, learning our way around town, meeting new neighbors, etc, etc, etc… So now here we are, two weeks later. Collan’s bedroom is painted green and has rocket ship curtains made by yours truly and our living room is in the process of being painted red (dark, maroonish red) with off white curtains. Collan (and Kyle when he’s moving) has a playroom (that we have yet to set up, but it will come), Andrew has an office, the kitchen is pretty big with more counter top and cabinet space than I could ever have imagined (and a dishwasher!!), we have 1 3/4 acres with three sheds on a “corner lot” on a bend in the road. It’s a nice, quiet area but right up the street is everything we need… Lowe’s/Home Depot, Target, Walmart, grocery stores, CVS, etc. I will post pictures… maybe through a link, maybe before and after of each room as we complete them. The best part of all of this is, it feels like home 🙂 Everyone is happy and there is room for Collan (and eventually Kyle) to run and play. Now… on with the painting, curtain making, and unpacking… after a nice restful night.



  1. Glad things are going to great!! I LOVE Collan’s ‘hawk!!!

    • Thanks! Collan loves his ‘hawk too!! Sometimes we add some color too 😉

  2. You are doing a great job…so happy for you !

    • Thanks!! And thanks again for your help with the curtains 🙂

  3. Congratulations! Looking forward to the pictures and your housewarming party !

    • Me too!! Whenever we get these boxes cleared out… will definitely have to be a fall housewarming party…

  4. And now today, the living room walls each have an additional coat of paint and Kyle’s curtains are done and hanging 🙂
