Adventures in New Housing!

We are now homeowners. 
They gave us the keys on July 2.
And now I know where every paycheck and bonus are going to go for the foreseeable future. My new house. With which, I am in love.

I'm still working on taking pictures, so I will be doing a proper before and after picture recap. But for those who follow me on Instagram, you have seen the crazy week that we've had - with removing wallpaper that is even more than glued on and trying to paint over it. We're getting there, and the pros are probably coming in next week to help finish the job.
The movers come July 22 to take care of the heavy stuff, and hoping that many boxes will be moved over there before hand.

I think we've rearranged the room assignments a few times and we haven't even moved in yet!

We have a four bedroom, 2.5 bath in a one and a half story in a suburb of St. Louis. There's a great yard and as soon as the wallpaper comes down and our colors go up, it will be amazing. There's a large living room and dining room right off the foyer and a sitting room off the open kitchen and breakfast nook. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the first floor and the walk in closet is huge. It's pretty much why I bought the house. ;) Upstairs, we've got three bedrooms and a bathroom so Husband will get an office, I'll get a craft room with open shelving and there will be a guest room next to the guest bathroom.

It's pretty much perfect. I'm in love!

P.S. Did I mention that he carried me over the threshold on Tuesday afternoon, once we got the keys? It was pretty darn adorable.
