New Digs

Well it's official! We are now homeowners. While I am INSANELY excited to have my own space to unleash my wildest design dreams in, I'm equally bogged down by the time consuming tasks that come with buying a "fixer-upper". The first month plus has been a whole lot of cleaning, painting, raking, replacing light switch plates and door stops and doorknobs and blah, blah, blah. It ain't easy doing these types of things with a 2 year old in tow either, but it's happening. Slowly but surely. We still have a mountain of those projects to complete but are also in the beginning stages of {finally} making design choices.
The master bedroom is starting to feel like home, and the guest room has a vision...which involves busting out my rug hoard. The fun is definitely getting started around here and we already hosted a couple little gatherings. Which felt SO GOOD since I've been itching to entertain. It also turns out my neighborhood is a fireworks mecca, hilariously so. So we've got that going for us. 

I guess I better fill ya'll in on the deets of the new crib. It's a late 1970's ranch style house, open concept living area with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It's about 1700 square feet, which feels like a palace after living in half that for the last 3 years. It has some of the original 70's charm left and has been blandly renovated in other areas. So adding character where it's been wiped out is in order. The yard is a decent size although maybe not big enough for me to have chickens. I might smuggle them in anyway, I'm not sure yet ;)

So, yep, that's the story. Now that we're on the other side of the holiday rush and initial home buying frenzy, I should be hanging out here on the blog more often with ya'll. See ya soon.

xoxo- Andrea
