I will not be moving ever ever ever again. (Stomps foot).

I. Love. Our. New. House!
The backstory, for those of you who haven't heard it, is this. Adam grew up in this house, and a few years ago, his parents sold it to Adam's brother and his wife. They lived here for a few years, but decided to pack up and head west! So, we jumped at the chance to get this house. It has everything we need, and we like being close to the family. C and R, we love you guys and hope you are having a blast. My sis in law, Carrie, is amazing, and you SHOULD check out her blog entry on the journey to WA. Beautiful! See it HERE.
Okay, I am going to do this in 2 blog entries to make it easier for me. (Yes, it is all about me.)Everything in the house is pretty simple, so you know me...I have to make it...a little quirky. ;) These are the BEFORE shots:

The living room. Please note the funky crazy sofa. It is soooo old, and hands down the most comfy thing you will ever sleep on. (Not that YOU personally will, but hey, if you need to, just call first.) We are so keeping it.

Fireplace in the Living Room

Walking into the kitchen from the LR

Kitchen (duh)

The foyer

The Den/Dining biggest challenge. We are putting in new hardwood in half, and carpeting the rest. And the color is a $#@%! to paint!

Come on upstairs!

The master bedroom! I love the color Carrie used. Thanks, C!!

Charlie's room...We had already painted it, but I will post an AFTER when it's all done.


The pool area...needs a makeover, but we have a pool! :)

Messy Garage

The fenced in backyard with the pond behind it. YAAAAAY!

The hubs tearing down the porch (it really needs rebuilding).

Providing work fuel. (Don't worry, it's safe to walk on our porch. He only had 2.)
And yes, he likes that beer. Blechhh. He's sure cute, though. ;)

That took a long time. The "Getting There" photos will have to wait until tomorrow's nap time. Please try to find something to help ease the suspense of waiting. Haha.

OH, in non-house, non-CF related news...they freaking made me sing karaoke at the bar I work in last week. EEEEK!! "Busted flat in Baton Rouge...."

The house is *gorgeous*--I would also refuse to move ever again if I lived there! The pictures of Charlie are absolutely adorable, naturally--thanks for sharing them!

Pool? Did someone say pool? Oh wait, I can't swim. Darn.

How cool that you're moving into your hubby's childhood home! It's beautiful, and I'm sure you're excited to make new memories in it. Congrats!
