We have finally started to get settled into the house. I can hardly believe that after three long years we are finally far enough along that we have been able to finally move in. It still feels like we will be leaving in the next couple of days to go back to our real lives. But that's not going to happen anymore because this is our real life now, this house.
I thought it would be fun to kind of chronicle the work we do to make this house our home. Now, we still have a long way to go and walls aren't going to be painted for a while, but I kind of like that exposed drywall feel, and that doesn't mean I can't dress them up by hanging all the pictures I want.
This is where all the pies were made for the wedding, all TEN of them. I have to admit it makes for a very nice little cooking prep area. And I finally get to organize the kitchen I want! I can now keep all the flour and sugar and other baking things right out on the countertop, instead of always pulling them out from a pantry or a drawer. It's small things that makes me so happy.
Our little make-shift shelves. We decided since we still have to finish off the walls it would be best not putting too many large shelves up yet. So this is directly under our little countertop, and it has been working out pretty darn wonderfully so far. I'm hoping to get some nice looking contact paper to put under the dishes instead of the paper towels, hehe. Or I might just get rid of the paper towels and just have then sit on the bare wood, I think that would look pretty nice too.
Our hodge-podge of pots and pans, but they are ours and I love them! The only I'm going to have to get used to is working on a smaller cooktop, I got super spoiled when we lived with Will's parents because they had a massive six burner Viking cooktop and it was kind of heaven!
Our little glasses shelve right above our oven. I have so many adorable glasses that have been given to me throughout the years and I finally able to display them. So needless to say I am a happy camper.
As I mentioned before we have a long way to go before we are anywhere close to being finished, but I am just so happy to get to start working on this chapter of our lives. It has been such a long time coming, and it's going to take a little bit to get back into a normal routine here, especially since the wedding is all done now. It's actually kind of weird not stressing over how to decorate the tables, but I have a feeling I will get over that pretty soon, hehe.
|I also have a feeling this little lady is quite happy having so much more room to add to her domain, hehe.|
