DAY 673... Our New Home

We are finally moved in! Let's be honest... moving is soooooooooooo much easier when you are 6 months pregnant and not allowed to do anything. But we are LOVING our new place! When you go from 750 square feet to almost 1200 square feet, it is nothing short of amazing! Aniston is walking everywhere because  there is so much room to walk! It's definitely older than our old place, but the character is awesome and the Landlord seems to encourage updating. Challenge accepted! So the only way to show you our new place is through lots and lots of pictures!!! I could do a video, but I kind of can't stand my own voice... so pictures it is! We still need curtains or something in the dining room and in our bedroom, but other than that we were able to redo a bunch of DI furniture and it came out great! I took a ton of before and after pictures so I will do an entire blog on all that crafty fun!
 Our picture wall in our living room! I love and always have loved pictures!!! Kind of obsessed with this wall.
 Our kitchen... Finally not a galley kitchen. Don't be jealous that we have carpet in the kitchen! Haha! It's actually very comfy to cook in there barefoot.

 Dining room... See that awkward shelf? Not quite sure what to do with it. Any suggestions?
 The office area.
 Access to the back porch! Love the fan!
 Looking from the office to the living room. So much stinking space! I made that valance above the window from cardboard, fabric, and hot glue! Thank you Pinterest!
 Our fireplace! I cannot wait until Christmas!!! Decorating is going to be awesome!
 View from our front door!
 Another view from the front door. Love me a good deep coat closet!
 Looking down the hall. The black curtains at the far end of the hall is our laundry PS.
 Ani's room. Keeping with the red, black, and white theme.
 Already had to put her crib on the very lowest setting! She is growing too fast!
 Ani's closet and her rocking horse (that Spencer refinished). Ani calls her horse her "weeeeeee"
 Play area in Ani's room. This girl can definitely make a mess let me tell you what.
 Our room. See what I mean about the curtains?
 View to the bathroom and closets.
 His and Hers closets and the bathroom door.

 Our tiny bathroom.
 Another view from the dining room to the kitchen.
 Our back porch.
 I love that there are stairs to the grass!
 View from our front door.
 Lots of space...
Oh yeah... did I mention we have our own garage with a storage unit in the back? Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

We are loving it here. Ani's favorite park is 1/2 block away and campus is super close. The best part is that we no longer have to fight the pedestrians from the college who don't know how to use crosswalks to get anywhere! So happy! Did I mention that this place is $40 cheaper than our last place? Even better!


  1. So happy for you Jen! New places are the best!

  2. I love it! It looks awesome!
