Santa Brought Us a House!

Santa visited us a little early this year when we closed on our new house! We are thrilled and can’t wait to move in!


After we closed, John and I went over to the new place for some champagne and toasted with our wedding flutes. We are so excited for the next step in our journey!


I wanted to share a few pictures of our new place. These are the photos from the listing, so don’t get too attached to the furniture or the colors – consider these the before pictures.

When we were looking at houses, I kept referring to this one as the Christmas tree house. I love the tree in front of the house and can’t wait to decorate it next year.

This is the entryway – we are thrilled to finally be getting a coat closet!


The kitchen is amazing! So much counter and cabinet space. Plus this island is awesome! The homeowners left the chairs, so that is one less thing we have to get.



I finally get a dining room! This is a little too red for us so we are going to take it down a notch with the paint.

The living room is big and has a lot of natural light. The previous owners had a thing for accent walls, so you will see a bunch of them throughout the house. We are going to repaint this room too.

This is the master bedroom and the only room where we are going to keep the accent wall. I can’t wait to finally get a king bed!

You can’t see this part, but we already took down the shower doors in the master bath. Next up – repaint this because that mustard yellow is not for me!

This will be the guest bedroom.

This room will be the future nursery, but until then it will be a staging room/office. I don’t have a good picture of the basement to share. It is unfinished, so we will eventually finish it and then it will be the man cave/office, etc.

third room

This is the second upstairs bathroom.

And this is the power room/half bath.

So we have been working hard to get things ready to move in and starting to bring some stuff over before our official move date. At this point we just can’t wait to be living there!

    Congratulations on your new house! I am pretty excited to see what the rooms and colors will look once you re-do all of them. And oh, the photo of the entryway, what is the skull for?
