Home Sweet Home

As I mentioned in the June post Jeff and I moved into our new home the first weekend in June. We have spent the last month doing some renovations after the fire and now have everything complete minus some boxes left in the guest room! The house is 4 bedrooms with 2 and half bathrooms and is close to 2400 square feet. We have a great fenced in backyard and love the neighborhood pool. We have already spent a good bit of time with one of our neighbors and look forward to getting to know the couple across the street. They are around our age and have the cutest little 2 year old girl and are currently expecting their 2nd. We are hoping for a boy for a playmate for Daniel!

Emma Kate's room

This is our formal dining room which we are turning into an office. The transition is going slower then we had planned because of the fire. But hopefully we will buy office furniture soon and this empty room will turn into my home office! It is right when you enter our front door. When we moved in this room had carpet in it and we switched it out with hardwood.

The kitchen was my least favorite room and was so bad it made us almost walk away from the house. However, we changed out the flooring to hardwood and are in the process of switching out the appliances from white to stainless so it has definitely grown on me since we have done a few upgrades. The only thing we have left to do in here now is get a stainless steel refrigerator which we think we will get as our Christmas present to each other. You know you are old when you Christmas gifts start to include appliances :)

Here is the other side of our living room. We have decided to only have a TV in the playroom upstairs and so far I have loved it! I don't spend nearly as much wasted time in front of the TV anymore and we have a clear divison between adult and kid space!

We are so thankful to have a "home" again and look forward to making lots of fun memories with our family of 4!
