Week three (and a half…) in #ourforeverfloridahome


It’s been a busy week, hence not getting to this until about halfway to week four. We’ve been working on lots of odds & ends this week. I have about four boxes left to unpack of decorations, but most of them I’m not really sure where to put.

I started painting doors this weekend, dark doors like our old house. We got a couch & loveseat for the living room and a new tv (presents to ourselves, can you guess which was my pick and which was Mike’s?!) and all spaces are really coming together.

The next thing I want to do on our list of projects is the floors. We’re going to do a wood vinyl throughout, since Rosie will be coming home to us soon (do you spy her in the pictures below???). By soon, I mean Friday. We’ll see how Lilah does with our new addition!

















Week two in #ourforeverfloridahome

Two weeks in and it’s like we’ve always been here. What’s even better about that? The memories we get to make in this house that we really haven’t yet.

Most every room in the house is done. & by done I mean that the boxes for each room are unpacked and things are set up and we are able to function like life as normal. But done does not mean DONE.

Trust me, there is a list a mile long of projects I have for this house, to really make it OURS.

Right now, the biggest thing on my list is finding a sectional for the living room, because that room is no where near done in any sort of the word. It is actually just a collect all for anything that is not unpacked or put away, hung up or decorated with yet.

But, I thought you might still love a peek into the rooms of our new house. So, here goes the first tour of #ourforeverfloridahome….enjoy!

Week one in #ourforeverflorida home


I blogged about our first home a lot. I mean, just look at all these posts. & I’m so glad I did. That house was special to us, our first real home and a place we poured a lot of love into. However, I never blogged about it on a regular basis like some DIY or home interior blogs. While my blog is not entirely DIY or home interior, we do a lot of both.

I thought it might be fun to chronicle the adventures we have in our new home every week. What better day than Thursday? We closed on the house exactly one week from today, making today the perfect day to start a weekly play-by-play.

I hope you enjoy it as much as me!

& this basket and its sweet note about the contents made me tear up.

We couldn’t have been any luckier!

The playroom/tv room is a perfect spot for the kids & us together.

the fresh new paint in here (and almost all of the other rooms, too!)

The making of #ourforeverfloridahome

As I sit on the couch, wearing my “I should blog this…” t-shirt and eating a Taco Bell Cantina bowl, in the middle of a house that is about 95% packed up, I realized, “Um, ya. I really should blog this.” It’s been a crazy month+ for us and if you know me in realContinue Reading

Mount a KFC Popcorn Chicken “Nugget-vention”

Any parent knows that at one point or another in the raising of your children, you go through a phase where they only eat a number of items. It’s funny though, because while each of my kids has their own preferences, they definitely have a limited number of things that they are willing to eatContinue Reading

wiww: a new ‘do

This week’s wiww will be short & sweet. Rather than feature what I’m actually wearing, I’m going to feature my new ‘do this week. Hair do, that is. Which, when I say it like that, hair do…it makes me wonder if that is the grammatically correct way to spell it? Isn’t it funny how thereContinue Reading

A picture is worth a thousand words…

…or so they say. This one sure is.

wiww: comfort in “winter”

I mention, comfort in “winter” with big fat quotation marks around the W word because in Florida we never really have winter. This year though, I’d say its been more seasonable than usual. I’ve definitely worn more sweaters, scarfs and boots than in years past. Which I don’t mind a bit, however, from time toContinue Reading

wiww: one dress, two ways.

  This week, I wore one dress, two ways. Dressed up, dressed down. I love when a piece works like this. Monday morning, I dropped the kids off at school and headed to a weekly Monday morning meeting with one of my clients. When we left the house it was a little cool, enough toContinue Reading
