Happy Monday everyone! I’ve decided to start the big project of redoing my dining room furniture. Right now it’s just a bunch of mismatched furniture that has been brought together from different places. I’m positive it will look great together once I’m finished working with them!
My mind is just running at 80mph! Our house is getting closer and closer to being painted so now I can start adding my own touches to each room. I’m also very ready for winter to be over! I have so many projects that I want to use spray paint and with larger items I need to wait until it warms up and I can go outside and do some painting!Read More
This week has been such a great Holiday! My husband and I hosted our first Thanksgiving in our new home and I have to say it was a successful Thanksgiving! I feel so grown up! 🙂
We have always lived in apartments so it has always been cramped when family comes to visit. We have gradually increased our square footage of living space in the past year. When we lived in California we lived in a small but beautiful apartment in Aliso Viejo that was around 900 square feet. When my husband got the job in Minnesota we only had a weekend to find a place to live. We decided to rent because we didn’t know exactly where we wanted to live and we also needed to research the school districts a little more. Our last place we visited ended up being the one! It was a wonderful townhome that features 2 beds, 2 baths, and a loft. It was perfect and we were stoked to go from 900 square feet to 1,700 square feet.
Within a few months we were already starting to grow out of the townhome. Children sure do take up a lot of space! We decided it was time to maybe start looking for a house. We went to many open houses and then started working with a realtor. I was obsessed with looking at houses online…probably too obsessed. 😉 We only saw a few houses with our realtor and then fell in love with our current house. It all happened very quickly and we decided to put in an offer while we were visiting friends in Wisconsin over Memorial Day Weekend. Within 2 days of negotiating, they accepted our offer and I immediately started decorating our house in my head. We were fortunate enough to have scored a 5 bedroom, 2,600 square foot home. We were not looking for this large of a home but it was in our price range so why not?!
