Moving Soon

Tomorrow afternoon we are signing the papers for the house! Yes, it is just a rental...but it's still our house. And moving into this house will be even sweeter after not living on our own now for the past few months. This is also our first real house that will be ours for a long time. We should be here the next 4 years. I haven't lived in the same place for 4 straight years since before I started high school! Whoa, that's a lot of moving let me tell you.

We get the keys to the house on the 15th hopefully the 14th. I would like to be able to get in there and clean everything really well before the movers come. Just because no one else really cares how clean the house is except those who will be living there.

This is when I really wish we would win the lottery so I could furnish the new house with all new furniture. hmmm that would be amazing! Right now I'm looking at shelf liners for the kitchen cabinets. yea I've always kind of thought they were old fashion but my mom brought up a good point that you don't know what other people were putting in there. I think it's a pretty easy cheap thing to do.

I'm looking at curtains as well. We bought a pair of the room darkening shades when we lived in the apartment because E was working crazy shifts and had a hard time sleeping during the day with the sun pouring in. Since then I have looked but never purchased anything else.  I love the ones we have but I know other windows in the house deserve love too.

My biggest problem is that I can't commit to a style or even colors. I buy everything in neutrals. Right now the house is full of tans and browns. My thought was that one day I would pick colors and then what I have will all coordinate. But we have been married too years and I'm still afraid of picking. I need someone else to tell me what to choose and I'm sure I'll love it. Until then I'll live in the land of the beige.


  1. congrats on getting into your house! i'm also doing neutrals as our large, basic furniture, but for a bit of color, I'm planning on adding some throw pillows or vases, i think it will give the room some color without having to totally commit to too many colors. (

  2. Congrats on the new place....I'll be excited too when we get out of my parents house.

  3. That is so stinkin' exciting! We are starting to look at new places (we're renting right now) and it's so exciting!

  4. My recommendation -- buy one piece in each room that you absolutely love, whether it's furniture, a painting, fabric for pillows or curtains - whatever. Then coordinate everything else around that!

  5. Exciting to move into a new place! :) I'm sure it will be lovely!

  6. YAY! Nothing wrong with brown and tan! ;)
