moving and settling in

Slowly but surely, Ryan and I are making this little house our home for next 11 months.

We’ve been here just over a week now, 

and we’re actually doing all our furniture shopping this weekend.

Yes, we were literally doing a marathon day of furniture shopping and knocking it all out in one day.

We bought our dining table and chairs last weekend,

and I just started refinishing it last night. 

When we bought it, it was an ugly blonde wood stain, which is not a favorite of either of us.

So, I’m doing a deep cherry wood stain 

to compliment the actual well-made design of both the table and chairs.

I’ll be sure to post before and after pictures, as well as a tutorial on that when we’re done!

I bought a rug for our living room yesterday –

yes, that’s the biggest purchase besides our bed thus far – 

and it makes these hideous post housing floors a little more bearable.

I know, this is all incredibly exciting. 

But seriously, I really want to share what the place looks like with you! 

Despite the fact that the floors are absolutely atrocious, it’s a cute little house for us to start out.

Once the furniture is in and the pictures are hung,

you’d better believe I’ll be inundating you with photos of our little house.

It’s not perfect, but it works well for us, and that’s what really matters right now.

While part of me doesn’t want to do too much for fear of getting attached to it,

there’s another part of me that fully plans to make it a home regardless.

Obviously, that’s the part that’s winning out!
