It’s our house-iversary! I can’t believe it’s been a full year since we got the keys to our first home. In some ways, it feels like we haven’t done much and have only scraped the surface of what updates we want to make to our home. But, looking back at our first house tour, it’s […]

House Project List: Winter 2020

Let’s face it, putting a new house together is stressful! And being in a new neighborhood, even if it’s your dream neighborhood, can be scary and different. Even though we bought our house for it’s location (amongst other reasons), it still took a while for it to really feel like home. That feeling of “home” […]

Feeling at Home in a New Neighborhood

Since buying our house just over a month ago, we have been knee deep in projects, unpacking boxes, and the never ending learning process that comes with your first home. Since you have all been along for the ride, I thought I’d share a little bit of the projects we are currently working on and […]

Our Current House Projects

When we started our search for our first home, we honestly didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into. There was a lot to learn and so much to consider. After all, house hunting was something we had never done before! So, I put together a list of 10 things we learned from our experience […]

Our First House Tour

Welp, it’s official. After 3 months of searching, and seeing close to 30 houses, we are now homeowners! The last month has been an emotional rollercoasters, and if you haven’t noticed I’ve been keeping kinda quiet for a while. Truth be told, buying a house is pretty draining. Super exciting and amazing… but very emotionally […]

We Bought A House!

With our lease ending at the end of July, we are starting to feel the pressure of our house hunt. We are working closely with our realtor, and have spent hours searching the MLS, touring homes and discussing pros and cons of every house we enter. Even though we’ve only been searching since April, it’s […]

Starting Our House Hunt

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things. As a kid, my mom would blast Christmas music ranging from the classic Peanuts, to Garth Brooks Christmas as we took out all of the decorations and put together our tree. One year, I even dragged our tree up from the basement (much too early) and […]

Our Home for the Holidays

Sometimes a last minute gathering can be hard to plan for, but there are a few things you can keep on hand to pull out at a moments notice to make your home look festive. Assorted Vases I think everyone has a mason jar or two (or five) lying around the house, on top of […]

Last Minute Party Decor

Organization has always been something I have loved and am fairly good at. My mom always says my life motto is, “a place for everything, everything in its place,” and she’s kinda right. I have always loved color coordination, binder tabs and everything being neat and tidy. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite […]

At first, I was a little nervous, because we were going to be coming back from my fiancĂ©’s family christmases, and then hosting my parents […]
