Christmas in the new house!

We are finally done with decorating for Christmas!  It took a little longer than usual because everything had a new spot!  There is still a lot to do in the years to come but this is what we have done this year.  I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season!

What 4 months looks like...

So, we have been in the house for about 4 months now.  We love everything about it but now we are just changing things to make it feel more like us.  This will be never ending and sometimes when I look around I feel like we haven't made a dent... And we really haven't! We have only painted one room and that is our daughters because she moved into a big girl bed.  What a difference paint can make!  Hopefully I can get more paint on the walls in the near future! Here's what we've done so far:

Getting settled

Things are slowly starting to come together and start to look like a home. We still have a lot to do but have made a good amount of progress..... Here are a few quick pics of the progress!

We went by the house tonight to check things out since our PM told us the floors were uncovered and they were starting to clean.  We wanted to see how everything went together.  We LOVE how it turned out.  Here are a few pictures of the kitchen/morning room with our cabinets and hickory floors!!!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and  happy new year!  It has been really busy around here so I am just getting to updating the blog.  We went buy the house today after we went and bought dining room furniture! We actually scored an AWESOME deal on craigslist of all places.  We have had our eye on a formal set from a local furniture store in town and low and behold a couple who is moving and has to get rid of their stuff for a cross country move had just put the exact same brand new set for about 1/3 the price up for sale.  MAJOR SCORE since we were going to let that room sit empty for a while and huge thanks to my mom for scouring the internet for the big find.

Anyhow, we are about 10 days out for our walk through and while there has been a lot done, there is still a lot to do. I'll let the pictures do the talking!

Tankless hot water heater!

Fireplace being stoned!

We can see!!!!

There are a lot of things going on at the house that we finally got a good look at since we now have POWER!!!!  First off, the stone on the outside is starting to go up and we can't wait to see how it looks once its done.  We got a chance to see our house all lit up ( for the most part) and it brings a whole new look to everything.   We love our two chandeliers and are so glad we upgraded everything to nickel.  It just looks so good!!!!!! Our tile is almost done in the house. It looks like the biggest things we are now waiting on inside are flooring and appliances.  We are starting to get super excited!!! We did get locks put on (last night actually) so our visits might slim out a bit :( Anyhow, no pictures today.... I doubt there will be much done between now and the new year...... But...... You never know!
