House Updates

23 Jan

We are slowly doing work around the house and have a growing list of projects we would like to accomplish. More trees removed, a deck or screened-in porch, backsplash for the kitchen, overhaul of the master bedroom, more painting and landscaping for the front. I realize I have posted no new photos in months.

We got a new couch in November and it fits the room much better. Also, I moved the location and like it better in front of the window.


We got a pantry for the kitchen but still need a better fitting table or we are even considering more cabinets.


We like our dining room but I want different and bigger artwork.



And, I am on the hunt for a new entryway light.


It is slowly coming together.

Happy Labor Day!

3 Sep

Or as Miss H says, “Happy Neighbor Day!” We have nice neighbors so I guess we should honor them with a holiday.

We have had a super busy, and expensive, weekend. I think we personally stimulated the economy in Northern Virginia. We have updated our closet organization, added shelving to the playroom, bought a new washer and dryer, made a trip to Ikea, several trips to Home Depot and Target, back to school clothing and shoe shopping for Miss H, new comforter and sheets and even replaced the doorbell. The house is really coming together nicely so it is worth it!

Kerry even broke in the lawn mower.

And, we unpacked more stuff and got things hung on the wall.

Miss H loves her ‘desk.’

And, she now loves to sit at the ‘new table.’

Today, Miss H had two friends over and they thoroughly wore each other out. They arrived this morning and stayed well past lunch. While the kids ran around, I got to catch up with their moms while Kerry was off buying new appliances.We spent the remainder of the afternoon getting Miss H a haircut and doing some more shopping.

Now, we are all exhausted and ready for the start of school tomorrow! Both Miss H and I return to class tomorrow.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.
