60 Days In?!

We're coming up on 60 days in our brand new home and things are starting to settle in nicely.  Hanging out by the door. We had to fill out our 60 day warranty sheet for things that needed fixed, and we only had 2 items. I'm not sure if that means we're not as picky [...]

A Year Away

Jesse is finally home after a year away!!!  Jesse just off the airplane! I purposely waited on sharing this information until he had been home for some time, due to OPSEC and well...we've had a lot of things going on. We're finally back to our normal routines and getting used to Jesse being away during [...]

We’re Homeowners!

Everything went sort of "dark" there for a little bit and mostly it was because there was a flurry of activity, personal life stuff, and doctors appointments. We officially closed on the house on June 15th. We took that weekend to bring things over to the house that we didn't want the movers taking (pictures, [...]

We Have A Lawn!

Wednesday evening at 5:30pm I received a text from one of the neighbors who lives in the development (who is moving due to military PCS season! WAAAA) that they were putting the sod down. I got Taryn to bed and told my MIL I was going to run and see the house. I got there [...]

Almost There!

Inside they've been working on patching scuffs/dents/mistakes. There are still some things I'm not incredibly happy with, that will hopefully be [...]

Last Day of Preschool!

Today was Rylie's last day of preschool. I can't believe how big she's getting. For comparison I've included her beginning of the year picture (where she's super angry at me). See how much she's grown?! I always thought I would be that mom that cries and is a huge mess when it comes to stuff [...]

We Have A Driveway!

Tuesday I drove to the house to get an idea of what was happening there and caught a wonderful sigh indeed... They were smoothing out the concrete that had been poured! We officially have a driveway and sidewalk now!!! They only did the front, not the back where our patio is...that came on Wednesday (which [...]

Being Too Harsh?!

This past week there has been a flurry of activity at the house. Long Electric has been busy installing everything for the lighting and electrical outlets/etc and well....to say I'm disappointed is putting it lightly. I walked into the master bathroom and saw this... The sub-contractor must know that I'm not going to let this [...]
