The last few weeks have flown by, and with tons of help from family and friends our house feels more like a home. We moved out of our apartment within one week of having the house keys, which was a week ahead of schedule! Within that first week we were able to get the entire upstairs painted (that's 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, living room, and foyer), changed the light fixtures, added shelving in the storage room, and replaced all the doors the bank broke getting into the house when it was foreclosed.
After we moved in we hung our curtains and blinds, painted and replaced the lighting in the basement, and started organizing the house. Although the central air died on us a week ago, we're starting to get comfortable. Honestly, I am still amazed at everything our families and friends have given to us during this adventure, and I'm so thankful for that.
I haven't decided where I want to hang up photos and wall decorations yet, and we're still painting some furniture. So I'm not going to do any before and after posts of rooms for a few days (or weeks). However here's a sneak peek of the living room decor and color scheme - gray, red and white.
If moving into a new house wasn't enough craziness for one month, I am also starting a new job. Tomorrow marks my last day at Güd Marketing and next week I start my new job with a State of Michigan marketing department. It's bitter-sweet to leave Güd. I'm going to miss seeing my friends at work everyday, but I'm eager for what's to come.
I'm also excited to have time to write for my blog regularly, and I can't wait to share what happens next!
