I am writting yet another post today...how unbloggerly of me. I apologize in advance. Dolly is on her 3rd hour of napping, because she isn't feeling well and hasn't been sleeping the greatest at night, so I have to do this stuff when I can. Ya know?

I love the process of building a new house. I hate moving. I have moved homes quite a few times in my 28 years. My parent's built and sold and built and sold. We lived in the same home for 11 years while we were all growing up and then the building and moving commenced. It was fun though, seeing it go up, a new house, a new adventure. It wasn't a huge, life changing adventure, considering we never moved out of our lovely little town and didn't have to change schools once. Which us girls much appreciated.

While Lucas and I were planning our wedding, we were also in the process of building our first house. Lucas designed it and contracted it out. He was there a couple times a day to oversee everything. He did an amazing job. The house had 4 bedrooms and I had lots of hopes to have a beautiful nursery in there. That never happened. We moved out of the house and stayed with my parents for a bit, bought a lot (which we will be building on in a couple years), moved into a little rental, had a baby, and are now building another home.

We knew what we wanted to change from the last home. I definitely wanted the kitchen to be WHITE, and the floors to be waaaaay lighter. Those damn dark wood floors look pretty, but sure are a pain in the ass to clean. I spent most of my day with a mop and hardwood spray in hand, because you could see every damn footprint and piece of dust. And the entire house was hardwood. So it took a long time. I am a lover of LIGHT and WHITE and although this house was nice, it was far too dark for my liking.

The NEW house is well underway. We should be in by August 1st, which is both awesome and terrifying. I have a lot to do before than.

The street. I LOVE it! We have never had friendly neighbours and this made me sad, because I love meeting new people and making friends. Our last home, and this one, no one wanted to be a part of that. I'm not too sure why.   I have already met quite a few of the neighbours here and they are SO NICE and inviting! We even received an invite for a Saturday Mojito party. I think we will fit in perfectly. 
We are also going to have a much larger property and a big fenced in back yard for Piper to run around and for me and Dolly to play. 

Since the one thing that we are changing quite a bit is the kitchen, we need a new table and chairs and a few other things. The old one...

We bought it well before we were married, over 4 years ago, and since I had never lived on my own, I didn't really know what I liked. I sure do now.

What is your favourite room in your home? Mine is probably not the kitchen, since I fail quite miserably in the cooking department. That gene skipped past me, which sucks.  I do enjoy a nice looking kitchen for when I am baking though ;)


  1. Your home is beautiful!!! I can't wait to see the new one done!!

  2. LOOOOOOVE your house, and I am sure the new one will be just as amazing!! Your hubby should design our house when we buy one ;)

  3. Your house is like mine, DARK wood and a dark dark kitchen! LoL Can't wait to see the new casa!!! So exciting!
