Honey, We’re Home!

We’re all moved in, and as of today I HAVE WI-FI.

Yay! I took the week off from work thinking I could unpack everything and decorate the house for fall…boy am I an idiot. Sigh.

I officially ran out of steam on Wednesday in regards to unpacking. Today I said no to adulating and went to Target and Macy’s. I have to accept that it’s gonna be a process. For now, I’m so happy to be in our new home with Pee Wee and D, so I can’t complain. 

This morning I finally found my camera flash and camera charger, so hopefully over the weekend I can snap a few pics. I did snap this one below on Monday using my iPhone…

I don’t have much decor out yet, nor rugs (I brought one I used in the apartment and was like, “NOPE!” when it doesn’t work, it simply doesn’t work…), but I did whip out my new floral bolster pillow from TJ Maxx and my GORGEOUS new lucite floor lamp

And as you can see, we splurged on the Dayna counter stools from Ballard Designs. That purchase initially made my stomach hurt, but living with them and using them for a week has made me realize sometimes you just have to splurge on what you want. We’ll love those barstools forever. 

My kitchen is my most favorite room in the house- I just want to be in there all the time. I’ve cooked more this week than I have ever before. This house is truly home to me. I am loving our appliances.

I have so much I want to write and share with you all, and I know so many of you want reviews on the larger ticket items (I promise I’ll get to it!), but for now I need a nap and to recharge my batteries (literally and metaphorically) so I can get back into a routine for work next week and of course here on the blog, too. You all have been so supportive, so I wanted to touch base with you all real quick.

Thanks for the kind words– you all mean so much to me! I wish I could invite you all over for a house warming party.

Be back next week because I need HELP choosing a rug for the living room. I’m tired of feeling cold tile under my feet when I watch TV.
