1 Year In!

I cannot believe it has been almost a year since we've been in our home. It feels like yesterday that we moved in. There's been some major changes in the development that I want to share. If you can't tell, we FINALLY have neighbors on both sides! The house on the left JUST closed. Unfortunately, [...]

Here Comes Fall!

Ahhh Fall. My very favorite time of year. The weather cools down, the leaves start changing colors, and PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING!!! I really love decorating and getting things all jazzed up for the holiday. Instead of doing something super creepy on the inside, I went for a basic fall theme. Entry hall table decorated for [...]

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 [...]

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.

Almost There!

Can I just say, I am so happy with how everything is looking now! Look at this beauty, she'll be ours soon! Today they painted the door, added the door handle and deadbolt lock. 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 [...]

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 [...]
