I apologize, as I have no “Friday Faves” for you. My evenings have been spent unpacking boxes upon boxes and trying to get my kitchen set up. I really cannot wait to get back to cooking and baking. Especially in my shiny new kitchen with pretty new appliances! I still cannot believe we’re in honestly. We’re still getting settled and unpacked, but it feels so good to call it ours. Well, mostly. The front and back yard is somewhat of a clay pit with several small ponds. That will happen if it ever stops raining and dries out enough! Our neighbors probably think we just decided to forgo grass to save on mowing duties. Soon. I hope.
Guys. Our house is almost done. I cannot believe it’s almost here! We’ve got a big moving task ahead of us in the next few weeks, so bare with me as I probably won’t be very active. I’m not abandoning ship again I promise! Also..check out our floors! EEEEK! Oh, and I am going to share a sneaker of the kitchen as a whole. It’s my favorite. So. Close. Now.
4 years, a New House and Bookmarks…Oh My!
4 years and 3 days ago I decided to start a blog. Mainly because I would post everything I made on facebook and was always asked for recipes. I really enjoyed blogging, I’ve not been consistent or ever present but I still enjoy it. I’ve let it overwhelm me a bit much and feel as though anything I post has to be perfect with perfect pictures and original recipes. Plus, I’ve had quite a few major life events in the past 4 years. Ideally I just want a place to be a creative outlet and document my life, because Lord knows scrapbooking takes WAY too much time :-).
I had a similar revelation and post about a year ago. Speaking of, my child grew fast in a year! Guess I just am not that great at keeping up. I am going to go ahead and use the…we’re building a house excuse. We’re almost done at that, and I cannot wait to get in! I keep telling myself once we’re in, I’m picking back up the food posts. It’s been a little busy for us lately :-).
In case you don’t follow on instagram, we broke ground in October of last year and are about 3 weeks out I’d say. Hopefully less, but I know this is the time that it’s hard to get those last details done. I’ll try and do an “official” tour once it’s all done with better pictures, but for now here are a couple in fast forward mode.
Our lot “before” (really this is with quite a bit cleared):
