Welcome Home! | Personal

If there's anything more exciting than moving into one's first home, I have yet to discover it. Additionally, if there's anything more taxing than moving into one's first home, I'm still waiting on that, too. After several weeks of elbow grease, painting, sweat and (sometimes) tears, we are officially living in our HOME!

After a long battle with the cable company, we have internet. WE HAVE INTERNET! Seriously, the internet is one of those things I didn't understand when I first heard of it, but now, I can't live without it. Our house is in the middle of a cellular dead zone, so we have spent many moments fishing for a signal. However, my absence from blogging and social media was not entirely to blame on our lack of connection. Unpacking, sorting, purging, etc...those things have taken up so much of my time.

We have made lots of progress around here. We took our first swim in the pool just a few days ago. Granted, it was 9:00 at night, but I enjoyed it just the same. We need to have a bit of pool schooling...I know absolutely nothing about them. So far, I've fed it a bit of algae preventative, chlorine tablets, and some cleaning tablets...my skin didn't slough off, so I think it's ok. Ha!

Once I can get all of the boxes removed from our general living space, I'll take some pictures to show the before-and-after. For now, this is my favorite change so far...

The majority of our house was a goldenrod yellow. It wasn't really the direction I wanted to go, so we bought MANY gallons of paint and got to work.

The after! Ah - much better! Our grey is called Secret Passage by Olympic One. I love it!

About two weeks ago, I decided it would be fun to have something really girly in my closet. Now, I had a pretty good closet at our previous residence, but the new one is really something worth mentioning. IT IS HUGE. AND IT'S ALL MINE! I cannot believe it! I ordered a pink chandelier from Amazon...add a pink chevron rug and a cute little stool, my closet is really starting to become by favorite place in the house! Ha!

In case you missed this on Instagram, this is it! Ahahaha it's so cute and I'm gonna love having my own little girly oasis.

So excited to be in our home, with internet, and back to regular blogging. Have a great week!
