The House: Kid Room #1

I know I said I wanted to go in order, but honestly order can go one of two ways.  I can show you the dining room, living room and playroom, or I can show you the kid’s rooms and guest bath.  I decided to go with the kids rooms first then work our way back. So…Asa’s room.  Well, he originally started in what is currently the nursery/guest room, and when we had Mason we moved him to what was the guest room.  My inspiration (or blatant rip off) came from Thrifty Decor Chick (for some reason I can’t get a direct […]

The House: Office and Kitchen

Happy Monday! It has been a long week. We have had a fair amount of showings for the house. Can I just say, it’s exhausting getting the house ready before every showing! Making sure everything is “just so” with two little boys in the house can be trying.  But I’m praising Jesus that people are coming through! So I promised more before and after pictures.  Well, here they are! This is the office space before (when we bought the house-the one on the left) and during is on the right.  We used that table for games and small dinners for […]

The House: Front Room

Well, we had our first showing on Monday.  On one hand we were SUPER excited because we had been feeling down that there was nothing over the weekend. On the other hand, we were exhausted from trying to get some things done that needed to be done to make the house look more finished. Do you know what’s so weird?  Not hearing any kind of feedback.  It is so strange running around your house getting it ready for someone to come see for 30 minutes and not know what they thought about it.  Fortunately our realtor called the other realtor […]

*Whew* and We’re Back!

Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA for the last month.  It has been crazy!  I have wanted to blog so badly but I haven’t had the time.  Last month we decided to put our house one the market.  An awesome plan, except we had SO much work to do on the house before we could list it.  It has felt like every spare moment has been spent scouring Craigslist, making Home Depot and Lowes runs, and doing work on the house.  We have been eating simple meals, staying up too late and physically draining ourselves to get the house […]

Emma’s Elegant Affair Bridal Shower

Emmasshower

Back in December my friend Stephanie and I hosted a shower for our friend Emma (and some other awesome ladies helped by bringing food and drinks).  It was one of the craziest weekends E-V-E-R. I did an insane thing.  I committed to 2 showers (yes, back to back on the same weekend!) and decorating for advent at our church. Not to mention it was two weeks after my surgery.  IN-SANE. Insane in the brain…insane in the membrane! It would not have happened if not for Stephanie.  She was a true rock star! After the first shower was over we cleaned […]
