bits and pieces...

of our new house!

It was a builder foreclosure,
so it is brand new.
It was a GREAT deal! :)
It was the model home so it has that janky
fence in front of it that we will be taking down.
There are only a few minor things we want to do
before we move in.

I am most excited about Rowan's room.
We are gonna do board and batten and
paint it baby blue to match his bedding!
CANNOT wait.
He will finally have a "real" nursery.

We gotta put knobs and pulls on the cabinet doors.
We are gonna do some other painting as well,
and board and batten in the dining room.
Since the windows are missing any trim...
we are gonna beef those up too.
The builder took the stove and microwave.
So we gotta buy those and a refrigerator.
Which we don't mind at all...because we get to pick them out!

Alan has been preparing for all these honey-do's for the
past two years...he better get ready!

Looking forward to...
a place to call our own.
 having lots of space.
having a sewing/office/hunting stuff room.
(Projects here we come!!!)
 planting flowers and re-doing the landscaping.
a bigger kitchen.
a pantry for all my couponing.
a place for my family to be comfortable
when they visit.
putting our personal touches on the house.
lots of windows. Welcome sunshine!

I am on the hunt for some new bedding for our
room. I am over the gold and red.
If you see anything cute, let me know.
It's gotta be cheap though.
I am thinking...
Brown, turquoise, khaki and a little red.
I saw some fabric at Hobby Lobby.

More updates coming soon!

Yea! So happy for y'all...I know you will have it decorated so adorably cute! We need to visit y'all. A new house is a good excuse for a shopping trip to Hob Lob!
