IMG_1236 IMG_1237 IMG_1244 IMG_1245 IMG_1248 IMG_1251 IMG_1252 IMG_1253It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here in our new home. I’ve never felt this feeling of having done so much, and yet still having SO much more to do. We came into home ownership knowing that we were buying a fixer-upper. And, so far, we are happy with our choice. We love a good project. Do you see that kitchen up there?? Now that’s a project. One very looonngg difficult project. I’ll be posting some pictures of what it looked like when we moved in and how it’s slowly taken shape over the last few weeks. Let’s just say that I’ve been doing dishes in the laundry room sink for the past 2 weeks. And we haven’t eaten anything that hasn’t been made in a microwave, panini maker, or an electric wok in what feels like a very long time. At this moment, that lovely new island is our one and only thing in the kitchen besides the fridge. Hubs and my father-in-law were nice enough to temporarily place it in the middle of the construction zone last weekend so we at least had some type of cabinet and counter space. Not that you need much when your current idea of cooking is popping a veggie burger in the microwave.

Besides the kitchen craziness things are coming together. New carpet has been installed in the bedrooms, Leah’s room is painted (thanks to my mother-in-law!) and my sister and I spent a very fun weekend sanding down an entire guest room furniture set (queen size bed frame, 2 dresses, a mirror AND 2 end tables) and painting it a sunny yellow. So good things are happening. And hubs and I have been so blessed to have some amazing DIY help from his parents, my sister, and (coming next week) my parents. Nothing brings family together quite like ripping out an entire kitchen, right??

But amongst the craziness, the unpacking, the cleaning and the many, many streaks of paint currently in my hair, hubs and I are loving our new home. I love our happy, tree lined street, our huge, sunny front window, my new walk in closet, and our back yard fruit trees. Yes, we have a long road of work and projects ahead, but nothing is sweeter than being together and being home.

    Congrats on the new home! It is so exciting. I know what you mean about feeling like there is so much to do. That is how I feel. We have lived in our new home for under a year and I feel like i have accomplished nothing-although people keep telling me I have done a lot. It is a very rewarding feeling though to put your own stamp on your home. Best of luck to you on all your renovations and home projects!!!!
