The New House

Good Morning everyone. We are at mom's. It has been going really well. We CLOSED on the house...hooray! I'm posting a picture of the front...of course this picture shows it has been empty for 8 months and the shrubs have taken over... Scott has been pulling up carpet and nails and cleaning gutters out. We are buying the hardwood this week and getting bids on people putting it in for us. I have to pick out carpet today. I'm meeting my sweet friend D who is a great decorator at the house tomorrow to go over color schemes and ideas. She is a hairdresser but does this in her spare time and is great at it.
I have tons of colors to go over with her. It's getting very exciting. I go this week to buy my furniture. I have picked out a new bedroom suite and dining room suite and Family room pieces. This part was rather fun and believe it or not my kids have been great furniture shopping.

This week I have to pick my final colors and start painting......get someone to put in my carpet and hardwoods. Shop for new light fixtures.......and possibly start slowly moving in.
I can't wait to start posting pictures for you all.

Madison starts tennis lessons tomorrow.....she finished Vacation Bible School Friday.
We didn't go to church this morning we were too tired.

I hope you all have a great week. I will check back with you all.

Oh how wonderful! Congratulations Jen! I'm glad things are all falling into place now and you are working on making this house your new home. Sounds like a lot to do, but I bet part of it is really fun too! Not the painting part, but the rest of it, maybe :)

Can't wait to see more pictures! Have fun and enjoy your new home!!!
