Home Sweet Home

So apparently my "comeback" took longer for me to make than anticipated. I blame it all on my full-time job as a legal assistant, full-time job as a mother of an energetic 1 year old, full-time job of trying to find my husband a job so I can ditch my full-time job, time consuming new calling at church on top of the usual dishes, cleaning, cooking, exercising... you get the picture.

But here they are at long last. The long awaited house pictures. I owe it to my missionary brother who finally got me motivated to take some after he requested them for the tenth time, because, who can say no to a missionary? :)

The main reason I've been putting off posting pictures?? Lack of a clean house. These were taken during the five minutes after cleaning that the house actually stays clean. My second reason? Lack of decorating. I still have boxes to unpack, pictures to hang, window treatments to make and rooms to paint. I've finally come to terms with the fact that it will probably always be a work in progress, and that I won't have much time to dedicate to making it mine as long as I have all of the above going on.

So, without further adieu...

Kitchen from laundry/pantry

Laundry/pantry off the kitchen
(awesome floor to ceiling pantry shelves on opposite side)

Main bath
(probably my fav room in the house, probably because it is the only one I've actually done anything with! Still needs work though... what to put above the toilet???)

Jacob's room
(Sorry, no pic of the master; too messy! I'll update once we have it painted/refurnished)

Downstairs rec room
(Yes, we need more furniture! Slowly but surely. The doors on either side open into unfinished space of what will be two bedrooms. Hooray for tax returns so we can finally get to work on that. Then there will be no excuse for you all to not come visit! There is also a second bath down here and lots and lots of storage space.)

And last but not least, the tile deserves a picture of its own, because a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into laying it. And yes, Jacob messes it up on a daily basis. It was A LOT of work, but looks nice when it's clean!
