Children's Museum

We visited the local kid's museum and decided to get a year pass. Lucy had a great time and it was fun to explore a new museum!

Hotel Living Part Two: Craft Time

In an attempt to entertain Lucy while all her toys and books were in storage, I bought a few crafts from Walmart.

Backin' Up

These pictures are from the beginning of November when we were still living in the hotel.

Clara finally discovered mobility, unfortunately she only figured out how to go backwards. This lead to many instances where she was stuck under a chair, table, stroller, etc. squealing for help.

Look at that innocent little face. So happy, so unknowing that she has backed herself into a corner. Literally.

Getting ready to back it up. Nemesis #1 in the left corner: Chair.

Don't let this little face fool you, she was squealing for help. And I was laughing and taking pictures, like a good mom should.

Huggin' Reboot

Zach and Clara were hugging up on each other and I had deja vu!

Exhibit #1: Clarabelle 

Echibit #2: Lullabelle



Who wouldn't want to smooch up those faces!

I love seeing my loves loving up on each other.

New House

Here are some pictures of our house while it was under contract. We were just waiting to close before moving in.

4 bedrooms
2.5 bathrooms
Built in 2002
2796 sq ft

I've noticed that several houses on our street only have one light on one side of the garage door instead of the usual two.

Front room that leads into dining room.


Front porch, ready and waiting for a glider bench. 

The formal dining room. Ready and waiting for all the game nights!

All new carpet leading upstairs to the bedrooms.

A sneak peek into the huge master bedroom from the upstairs landing/hall.

Our lovely realtor standing in front of Lucy's room.

The fifth bedroom. Jk! The enormous master closet.

The master bath.

Lots of storage space! New tile, wood laminate floors, appliances, sink/faucet, and granite counter tops.

Living room.

You can see a little bit of the overhang from the back patio in the widow along with the shed.

Large pantry in kitchen.

We love our new house!

All the boxes were emptied by the movers so we have been organizing and putting things away for the past two weeks trying to get things in order. It's been nice to go through everything and pull out things that we don't want, need, or use to donate and get rid of.

My new philosophy is that if I don't love it, then I am not buying it! This will help me eliminate clutter and unused/unwanted items in my home for the future.

Any tips on maintaining a minimalist home only filled with things that you love, and that make you happy every time you see/use them?

I love open spaces!
