<<< psst! you can see a full list of my diy projects here! >>>
i hung a plastic shoe organizer inside our hallway closet door to store all of our household medicine and first aid supplies. i especially like having the clear pockets so it's easy to see what's inside each section.
while unpacking, i came across my collection of books by michael crichton, my most *favorite* author EVER. i displayed the books i love most (( and you can really tell on some of them! )) on the glass block windowsill in our staircase.
the previous homeowners completely gutted the kitchen when they remodeled so i know for a fact the grime inside the oven can't be more than five years old. how does it get to this stage in less than five years???
here's a preview of lil' archer's room! i wanted a safe place for him to play while we attacked the rest of the house so i made sure to have it finished before we moved in this past saturday. i'll post more detail later!
i was a little scared when the attorney plonked down a sheaf of papers a few inches thick and said she was going to walk us through them, page by page.
...and we would have to sign or initial each one.
but, all in all, it "only" took an hour and a half.
...and OF COURSE we immediately went to the house
to take this lovely picture for y'all.
and that's our front door and that's our mailbox and that's our porch.......!
we had our final walkthrough today. it was sweet seeing lil' archer run through the house for the first time and watching him explore the backyard - a completely new concept to him. i'm already imagining our lives one year, two years, five years from now...in this house.
BBQs in the summer.
snowmen in the winter.
bringing our first dog home.
lil' archer learning to ride a bike in the driveway.
family game nights.
sounds of little feet running up and down the stairs.
