Aaron & I (mostly me) have been searching for a different house for a while now. We are used to moving every couple years to a new location, so we have been getting the itch to move here lately. We have decided that we will stay in our area a little longer...well at least til our daughter graduates next year.
Now that we have decided to stay put, we need to fall in love with this house. It's a great house, in a great neighborhood.
The only problem is I am ready for a one story house outside of a subdivision. Until then, we (really just me) have to make some changes around here. I have so many ideas floating around in my head now. I have been driving Aaron crazy! He has been a great hubby & just smiles at me, tells me to write it down and humors me. I have been on Pinterest & my favorite blogs The House of Smiths , Our Vintage Home Love, & Remodelando la Casa. They have beautiful homes & do all their designs and projects on a budget!
There is a big need for a fence to keep our 2 youngest away from the road. They are drawn to it & it puts fear in me every time they are outside. This takes priority & also will give them somewhere to play safely so mom can work on this house.
The room that is currently driving me nuts right now is the kitchen. I hope to eventually paint the builder grade dark cabinets white, put up a back-splash, install under cabinet lighting & add hardware to the cabinets. Until then, I am focused on the eating are of the kitchen. I recently moved the computer back into this area so the boys & I wouldn't have to keep going up and down the stairs so much. The problem is it takes up room & I had to push the table over. This has made the light off center & is driving me batty!
P.S. We are supposed to get snow tomorrow...my boys are super stoked!
