We moved into a new house on June 18. It is the most beautiful house and I want to live in it until I die. Moving was not the most fun thing I've ever done but we survived and it was less painful that I anticipated. We had so much help from great friends. The house didn't really need any remodeling or updating but we did a few things to modify it for our family. We finished the basement and made a sleeping area and play area for the kids. We put in an egress window that I hope we never have to use. We built a banquette in the kitchen area so that we can all fit around the table to eat. We painted alot of the rooms. I am sitting here trying to figure out which room is my favorite and it's really hard. I really love the master bath. It has glass block windows making up part of the shower and two shower heads. I really love the quiet living room. I really love the first floor laundry room. I really love the colors in the girls room. I really love the view out of Emily's bedroom window. I really love the landscaping and the great variety of the plants. I really love the space the boys have to sleep and play. Seriously, I love almost everything about this house! Two things I want to change still are the fixtures in the first floor bath. They are a little ugly. And the counter in the kids bath. Also ugly. But overall I love my house. Every morning I wake up and I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. Here's some pictures and I will try to take some more of things I missed and post them later.
This is the living room. I got that couch off Craigslist for way cheap and I love it.
