The Move!

It's been two weeks since we moved. We are settling in, but are no where close to being done with little projects. We are taking it day by day. 

I was thinking this morning about the things I really liked about our last house. I loved the big porch and the brightness in the house. I hardly ever had to turn on lights. I loved the afternoon shade on our driveway because we could play all afternoon even in the summer time. I loved the trees we planted. I loved the plantation shutters we installed.  GUESS WHAT? All of these things are here at our new house. We have a huge back porch, lots of bright windows, afternoon shade on the awesome driveway, lots of trees, and plantation shutters on some of the windows. I think God was just reminding me that if we seek HIM FIRST, he will take care of all of the little details. He loves me that much!

Here a few before pictures.

Jensen in the duck pjs that the girls wore too. He is so close to walking.

Here is a list of things to do in the next few months:

- Paint main living area a gray/beige color maybe Revere Pewter or Pediment
- Paint shutters, front door, and garage door
- Finish hanging pictures and art
- Put a backing on the storage wall separating the play area and foyer
- Finish organizing the garage so we can park both cars inside
- Find a headboard for our new king size bed
- New bedding and curtains for master
- Hire a handyman to fix a few things from the inspection
- Get carpet cleaned and mop tile well
- Mulch beds 
- Plant in beds
- Trim back trees along the fence
- Put up cabinets in laundry room area for better storage and organization
- Organize mudroom type area at the garage door
