This morning I am excited to show you a little taste of our new abode.
Since moving in several weeks ago, we have constantly been on the go getting unpacked and decorated, but last week I felt like I hit a wall. I was done decorating. There were still boxes all over the place, things were half ass-edly placed wherever I thought they should go, and overall I was feeling OVERWHELMED at how much work setting up a home can be. Why can't there be unlimited funds to go out and buy everything on my wish list so that it can look straight out of a magazine? I didn't even want to share the progress on the blog until everything was in perfect shape and we had made some of the upgrades that are on top of my list.
But this weekend, knowing that there were some friends coming over to see the new place, I was re-energized to at least pull the place together so that people wouldn't cringe when they walked in the door. And you know what? I am happy with how it all came together.
I realized I hate it when people just show off all the perfect things in their life. Don't tell me that those homes in Better Homes and Gardens didn't start out on a budget of Goodwill and furniture leftover from their parents/college dorm/apartments. I am excited to share the progress of turning our house into a put-together home. We'll get there. But for now, take a peek at our living room and its holiday flair!

I swapped in a Christmas card over a piece of antique sheet music for an easy holiday print!
I think a blog post is necessary on how this red glitter fruit came to be...
To do: restock this corner. Absolutely necessary.
