Happy (almost) 3 year Birthday to our house!

I have a seriously hard time believing we settled on our home 2 months shy of 3 years ago? What better way to celebrate then trying to convince my hubby to move! Yes, you read that right. I am ready to move. We love this house, but I am CLIMBING the walls. We're also very unhappy with our neighbors and neighborhood. Hubby could stay here for a few more years I am sure. He's content with his man cave. But quite frankly, I am out of closet/cabinet space! We're ready to grow our family and we just don't have the space. So now, I am researching some blogs and going back to a few followers to see how they are loving their homes. I have it narrowed down to 8(haha) RH floor plans we like. Cross your fingers and say a prayer for us. I'm hoping we can put on the market this summer :)

How's it going folks?!

I feel like a big time stranger to this blogging world! I just have to update and say that we LOVE our home! I hope everyone is loving their home too! If not, what's bugging you or what went wrong? I feel so blessed that we are so young and fortunate to have built our first home.  We had our 30 day fixes and everything was minor thank goodness. Did anyone have anything crazy happen after their move in? I hope I'm not jinxing myself!! Our last and final neighbor moved in next door and she also has two dogs. Our fence situation just got more urgent! I woke up the past two days and she had her dogs going to the bathroom in our backyard!! I guess that's the downfall to a townhouse though! We're having our fence put in ASAP--we were going to attempt to do it ourselves since boyfriend and all this fireman friends are pretty handy but we need it done NOW! I really do have to say though, little things aside we definitely got lucky with building. I am so pleased with our sales rep and PM I just sent an email to their bosses about how they want above and beyond what was expected. We definitely were cautious at first after reading some horror stories but I'm so glad we went with our gut feeling! Bottom line is we are thrilled and so pleased! We have slowly been adding furniture and when everything Is put together I will be adding pictures! Can't wait to hear about everyone's progress!

I'm in a rut..

I have found myself to be a in decorating rut. I would really like to paint soon but everyone is advising to wait a year. I can understand the 30 days but a WHHHOLLLEEEE year!?!? Ill never be able to hold out that long. I'm bored with the white walls and no hanging decor. Is there anyone out there that didn't want and regrets it? Our 30 day fixes were delayed until this week so I'm hoping after the few nail pops we have get fixed I can convince Chris to let me put a little color on our walls!!

Landscaping photos

So last week our sod was installed and our flower beds were dug. This week they have planted a few (ugly) shrubs but ill give them a shot. I planted a few tulips, etc to add a little color. I'm super busy so this a a quick post!

So I did this backsplash job myself. I have NEVER done anything close to this so it was quite a task! Instead of using mortar, I used these adhesive mats and they were a godsend! It eliminated such a messy step! It still needs some touching up, but ill get to that when I get a chance to catch my breath! Sod photos to come maybe tomorrow, when I got home tonight it was dark! Photos are of the tiles I bought, the adhesive mats, the backsplash pre tile, backsplash up pre grouted and finally grouted!

Now I know...

I've always wondered why you hardly ever are updated after someone moves into their new house by their blog...THEY'RE TOO BUSY!! I feel like every time I turn around there is something else to be unpacked or put into place! We have our 30 day on Friday so that's SUPER exciting...what's even better is I have nothing bad to report! I did our backsplash last week. It definitely isn't professionally done, but hey--I did my best! Also, our sod was put in today!! Yay! I'll post pictures of the yard when I can! I'm excited to plant some flowers that's for sure!!
