When I started this blog about two and a half years ago, we had just moved into my in-laws’ house in order to save money for our own home. We didn’t think it was going to take as long as it did to accomplish our goal, but guys…we bought a house, and we moved in over the weekend. It is truly a dream come true and it happened so fast — we went out one day to look at one house, and it ended up being The One.
We moved in on our five-year wedding anniversary, which was such a gift that we both could share. My husband already did a bunch of home improvement projects and I zhushed — it was pure bliss. 😉 With a little stress, of course. But mostly bliss.
Together as a couple, we truly found our faith over the past several months and created a strong bond with our God, and we are all the better for it. It was an amazing experience to go through as a couple and I am so, so thankful.
SO, we’ve got a ton of fun little projects to do and things to get (all eventually), but I thought I’d show you just a little bit of the house today.
My mom brought us that pretty poinsettia on the day we started moving things over. I love it!
The entertainment center is from Ikea. Lots of great storage — I’ve got some candle sticks and vases in the bottom drawer.
The slip cover for the sofa is from Sure Fit and I highly recommend it if you want to cover a sofa and not buy a new one. We got the look we wanted for just a little more than $100. The pillows are from HomeGoods, of course. 😉
I changed up my little vignette that I wrote about on the blog a few months ago — layering a lucite tray with my DIY marble tray. A silver bowl holds my favorite rocks and the seashell that Grey collected for me on our beach trip back in June. And aren’t those coasters cool?! Marble with an agate center — HomeGoods for $7.99. I couldn’t believe it!
The kitchen is a work in progress much like everything else, but I love it. We hung the chandelier that we bought from Ikea and I’m expecting four chairs next week – I got them for a great deal and need extra seating so I can actually have people over for dinner. 😉
I hope you’re having a great Tuesday! I’m off to work and then I have a feeling I will be spending my evening sorting through the garage, ha!
