The house

I have been trying to write this post for days, but by the end of the night I am too exhausted to write. I have been working on this post for 24 hours, and I only have two sentences written. That is how hectic life is right now. The girls are pushing their boundaries lately, and the dogs are destroying everything. Lightening struck near my house and fried my television. Everything else on the power strip was okay except for the tv. The bright spot of this week is E bought a car. We are now a two car family again which means the girls and I aren't stuck in the house all day. It is nice to know that we can leave any time of the day, and we don't have to worry about E's schedule. 

I took a few pictures of the house. Disclaimer: I did not clean or pick up before I took pictures so what you see is usually how my house looks while the girls are awake. I have found that cleaning works best at night for my family. Also, Hannah kept jumping into the shot so you will see her in some of them. 

The kitchen. The previous owner renovated it. We have done nothing to it.

Hannah jumped in

This looks into the dining room which we turned into a playroom

The playroom is a disaster most days. They don't follow my clean up before your next toy rule. We are working on it.

The office/guest room. The futon is from E's single days.

The living room. Hannah threw her hands up as I took the picture.

Hannah's room
The only rooms we painted are the girls' rooms. For now we are using old stuff until we have more money saved to decorate accordingly. The plan is to put French doors on the office to close it off, and we are going to pain the playroom pink (Hannah's choice). Our focus has been saving money for a car since we needed one before Hannah starts school. Now that we have done that, we are going to start saving for house projects. 


  1. Woohoo - you're in and pretty much settled! I can't wait to see how you make the place yours.
    And, I spy an awesome finisher's medal display in your office! :)

  2. I am loving it so far! Looks great.

  3. We still have my husband's bachelor futon, too. Do we ever get to let those things go?

    1. I don't think so. The futon has turned into the dogs' bed for now.

  4. So glad you're getting settled.

  5. I'm the same way with cleaning. It's easiest for me when the girls are asleep, or at least relaxing on the couch, and out of the way.
    The new place looks great! From the photos, it seems pretty big!! (:

  6. Looks great so far! I'm so glad you're settling in nicely!

  7. Nice house! I so wish we could have a playroom.


I'd love your opinion!
