Settled...

Three weeks later- I am finally feeling settled into our new home. And surprisingly enough- I am happy:) I don't miss our old home much and this place feels like home. Probably because it has four of my most favorite people in the world (and one cool cat) living there with me. I am a bit obsessive, so feel like I can't relax until everything is just as a I want it. And while we are not completely there- we are quite close. I can't wait to get my vinyl machine all hooked up so I can get a few quotes on the wall! And it is a "cute" little place, as many people have called it. There will always be a few things that drive me crazy- like the stained glass in the door, the oak cabinets and the brass doorknobs... but it is a rental, so I will live with it :) So here is our new home revealed....



I love that we have a gardener and I don't have to mow or pull weeds or worry about the grass not being green....

I love this big front room...
(I also love this cute little girl on the couch!)

The girlies room..










My favorite wall

Re did the pictures in the girls room






Hung up the kids artwork (My mother-in law insisted these should be up) and I love seeing their work displayed in their rooms.

















































The backyard is a nice size and the kids are spending a lot of time out there. There is a lot of shade between the overhang and a nice big tree in the back.

You are so amazing Kyra! Seriously I can't believe that you've got everything up on the walls already! I've been here for 2 months and I'm pretty sure that we have none of our stuff on the walls! Way to go! Let me know when you're coming to see me so you can do mine all for me! :) Love you!
