We are working on the new house and packing up this one at the same time. We are busy but excited!
Excited to be closer to school, reorganize, and downsize.
This is the fifth house we’ve lived in in our 13 years of marriage, and I’m ready to just. park. it.
The kitchen is very nice, but we may opt to pull the stone off the island because there is a lot of stone and tile and it echoes a lot in the kitchen/family room. Adding furniture and a rug will help, but we also want the girls to saddle up to the island without having to keep bandaids on the counter. The undertones of the stone, backsplash and floor tile don’t seem to jive, either. I’ve also been looking over samples of whites for the perfect cream cabinet color.
My brother (the best handyman in AZ, IMO) has helped Kevin tremendously by rewiring the house and pulling down the tile on the wall in the room that will be Kevin’s office. It looks a bit scary now, but I know it’ll eventually be a great office for Kevin by retro-fitting our current office furniture in there. Mama’s got a lot of furniture painting to do.
I found this entertainment center on CL for a great price. Kevin will cut out the existing drywall niches and retrofit the cabinet to look built in. There will be some cutting and wood filling involved so I’ll have to repaint it but it should eventually work out nicely.
The backyard will be great. With school much closer to home and church equidistant, we want our 3 social girls and their friends to enjoy coming over so Mama can keep an eye on them S’more’s anyone? C’mon over!
The BEST part of moving here is living down the street from my family.
My sister’s wedding day is in 2 days, and we are making sure our i’s .and t’s are dotted and crossed to make her day absolutely unforgettable.
