house update

I've had some [very thoughtful] questions about the house progress and thought I'd break the blog silence for a quick update! These builders - they move fast, y'all. Granted, it is a very pre-packaged operation. We have found it to be an exciting process that is a great fit for a starter home. Though I'm going to really miss our little 1920s house and all its character, I have big plans for giving our new builder-grade home our own personal touches. And by plans I mean amateur sketches of each room on graph paper [I am my father's daughter] with a list of room colors and purchases below. Welcome to my crazy side.

Here are a few pictures of some of the details I'm most excited about:

If the HOA allows it, this door won't be white for long!
I can't walk past this without thinking about what fabric I'm going to cover the cushion for this with. Crazy nesting brain.
Our fireplace that will [hopefully] soon be surrounded by pretty stones.
First glimpse of the pretty floors complete with dusty workmen footprints. Thankful for those workmen!
Kitchen cabinets and counters are done and waiting to be lined. Dreading, dreading, dreading.
Upgraded the stove so we could be cooking with gas. Mamaw will be so proud.
Waiting for touch ups, obviously.
A pretty arch between our bedroom and sitting room [which, hilariously enough, we have no furniture for].
A tub big enough for my long legs. Complete with a large picture window that will need blinds STAT.
That's us!
That's us, too!
Sprinklers and sod and landscaping happened this week. Always changing!

There she is! Guest room will be done ASAP for all of you long-distance loved ones. Start planning!


  1. If there's give in the stakes or the form, neither of them are doing their jobs correctly. Also, keep in mind that the ingredients for the mix should be bought from a home improvement store to insure quality. For faster setting concrete, use less water, for more workability, use more water.
