Patience paid off!

Patience paid off!

For the past year I’ve been drooling over this one specific dining room table that I kept seeing on Pinterest.  Of course, none of the links listed where the actual table was from.  I searched high and low and one day I finally found a blog that stated where the table was from, Restoration Hardware.  I immediately went to their website and found the table I’d been lusting over was the Salvaged Wood Trestle Dining Table.  And then I found…

A tale of two doors

A tale of two doors

Right after Matt and I moved into the new house we had a really bad storm come through and our front door leaked.  You can read about that here.  That was 3 months ago.  Since then I’ve been waiting for my new front door.  While we weren’t happy that the front door leaked, it gave me the opportunity to actually get the front door I wanted.  When we bought the house, I had dreams of removing the grids from the…

Snow and more snow!

Snow and more snow!

In the past 2 weeks we’ve had like 3-4 days of snow!?!?  This is absolutely crazy for NC.  Normally we’ll get a day of snow here or there but these past few weeks it’s been a lot!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good snow day but this is starting to get ridiculous.  The city basically shuts down because we aren’t equipped to deal with snow.  Not to mention people already drive like idiots so adding snow is a…

Moving day cold!

Moving day cold!

Friday just happened to be the coldest day of the year so far!  I woke up early and took the kiddos to mom and dad’s house for the day. On the way home I stopped to get coffee and donuts for the movers. The guys arrived at 9:00 and got to work.  By noon they were headed to the storage unit, and then to the house.  I had pizza waiting for lunch and then the unpacking began.  Once the furniture…

Keys to the Casa

Keys to the Casa

Well, it’s OFFICIAL!  We have a brand new house! Due to weather concerns, our closing attorney pushed our closing from 10:30 yesterday to 2:30.  While I would have preferred to close a little earlier in the day, this allowed us to sleep in and take our time.  We met the builder and warranty guy at the house at 12:30 to make sure everything on our checklist was complete.  Once the details were finalized, Matt and I headed to lunch before…

#icepocolipse 2015

The last few days the forecast has been up in the air for what we were in store for this week.  Some models had Raleigh getting a few inches of snow.  Others had use getting up to .5″ of ice.  Yay Snow, Boo Ice! Yesterday morning my office sent out an email stating people could work from home that afternoon should they be able.  Around 12:30 my coworkers and myself headed home.  It was a pretty slow afternoon as we…

Microwave killer

Microwave killer

When Matt and I met almost 7 years ago, he didn’t have a functioning microwave in his house.  He told me it had broken shortly after he moved in which meant he had lived there for a few years without one!  Like who does that?!  Anyway, when I moved in I brought my little counter microwave.  That worked well for a while but after we got married we decided it was time to replace the microwave.  We went to Lowes…

Under Contract

Under Contract

Under contract!!!  YAY! Matt and I put our house on the market on Thursday the 15th as we had someone requesting a showing before it was officially listed, it had been listed as Coming Soon a few days prior.  We had planned to list it on Friday but were able to get everything done by Thursday.  We had a few more showings on Friday and received our 1st offer on Saturday.  The couple didn’t have a pre-approval so we waited…

House Tour – Part 2

House Tour – Part 2

I decided not to make you wait for the rest of the house. I’m so nice. 😉 You may have noticed the Master Bath is the only bathroom currently with a mirror. This is on purpose. I have mirrors for all the bathrooms except the Ensuite. I was waiting to see what the vanity would look like before I bought something for in there. I have a “Pinspiration” bathroom for the Ensuite which has a Pivot Mirror above the vanity….
