Our New House

I realized that although I posted a picture of the outside of our house when we first did a walk through, I never revealed the finished product.  Well, almost finished product.  I lost my unpacking vibe when it came time to organize the spare room.  It kinda sorta looks like a tornado hit it.  Which is fitting since we live in tornado alley.

To refresh your memories, here's a look at the outside of our duplex.

One of my favorite rooms in the house is the living room slash dining room area.  It's sort of a L-shaped room which I wasn't in love with at first, but it's definitely grown on me.  The new furniture probably has something to do with that.  (Please excuse the boxes--we hadn't picked up everything when I took the photos.)

My second favorite room in the house is Evie's room.  Mostly because we invested in some cube storage so her room doesn't look like the aforementioned spare room.  The kid's got a lot of toys and little room to put them.

One of my favorite things about the bedrooms is the closets.  Lame, I know.  But in our old house, we had to build closets because it was so old.  So we had tiny practically non-existent closets.  Regular sized closets make me feel spoiled now.

Our bedroom is pretty boring. 

The kitchen and bathroom are small so its awkward to take pictures of them. 

My favorite thing about the house is the hardwood floors.  Especially now that we have a husky since she'll shed so much.  I don't love having to dust mop the floors every single day, but it makes me keep up on the housework.

Believe me, that's a plus.


  1. I love it. I can only hope we do as well. I don't think I've ever commented before so hello as well. I've been following you for about 4 months now.

  2. Hi! I'm not sure what housing is like up there in North Dakota, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that it's good! Make sure to officially "follow me" (the button's on my sidebar) so I can check up on you too. :)

  3. Hey there! I just found your blog the other day and have read a couple of posts. I LOVE your sense of humor. =)

    I hope you enjoy the new house! The husband was really adamant about our house having carpets and for me to not even look into houses that said nothing about carpets. Now that we've raised and potty trained a lab puppy...I think he's regretting it. Gotta love Resolve and OxiClean!! =)

  4. Thank you! :)

    Yeah, there are pros and cons to carpet. House training dogs is definitely a con!

  5. Thanks! It's definitely growing on me
