A New Home

We got the keys to our home on August 1st, and six weeks later we are moved in and the remodeling is finally finished.

Yesterday, with the help of my daddy (who am I kidding, he did pretty much all of it), Mr. B and I were able to finish the kitchen and trim some branches. We also hung pictures, and that is what makes a house a home....seeing your own touches, lives and moments on the walls.

It took a lot of time, money, tears and help, but I'm now sitting in my beautiful living room, while our dinner is cooking in my spacey, blue kitchen, writing this post.

However, our move wasn't without its casualties.

Our poor coffee table; at least only one slate broke. And the curio cabinet lost two glass shelves. And I now need a new carafe for my espresso yi yi.

But we're in and settled and FINALLY able to ENJOY our home!

It's so nice not worrying about the apartment, or how much money we need to budget, or how much painting we have left to do. The hard and stressful stuff is over, and now we can do projects at our own pace on our own know, like homeowners :)

And, yes, we'll now be requesting Lowe's gift cards. How grown up our we?

But, anyhoo, lots of thanks to all who helped us move and remodel. We couldn't have done it without you. And Jess, I could not have made it through without your fabulous housewarming gift.

Thank you for the wine, and Mr. B thanks you for the bread.

Here are some before and after photos. Enjoy!

With Love and God Bless,


  1. Love the updates to the kitchen and I am glad you liked the wine! Also, I think you should get a bed skirt :)
    I hope I get to see you sooner than later!

    1. Okay the cat destroyed our last bed skirt. But now that we're not letting her in the bedroom, and I need a new set to go with the purple, I'll be getting one.

      I hope to see you soon, too; I have a present for you!
