Our new "Home Sweet Home"

This week we are scheduled to close on our new house! It has been a lengthy negotiating process but we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel :) Oddly enough, Cameron does not offer any newer houses, so we have been trying to find something to accomodate our family for the past several months. Luckily we stumbled upon this older brick house that has been totally remodeled inside. We fell in love with the crown modling, extra space, wooden blinds and fact that it has no carpet!! Although carpet is cozy, we have destroyed it in our past few dwelling places. I'm hoping that it will be much easier to keep clean with two small kiddos! Emma's bedroom is the biggest in the house and has three huge windows. After moving in, my first project is to find curtains for all of the windows....especially dark ones the kids' rooms! I am excited to finally be able to piece Owen's nursery together. Most of our baby furniture and equipment has been in storage for the past year so it's time to get everything prepared :)
Here are some photos:

Built in shelf located in living room - we hope to fill it with books & pictures!

Here is the exterior - our new address is 1406 N Jackson ~ we hope to put up a backyard fence this Fall.

Here is the kitchen which is probably my favorite part of the house! I have always wanted an island and now I finally have one :) There is TONS of storage...finally enough for all of my fun Pampered Chef gadgets! We are getting a new white fridge and stove installed next week!

Here is part of the dining room. I am really looking forward to using the dining room table and chair set that was once my Mimi & Pa's. We will also finally have enough room to utilize the beautiful china cabinet that once belonged to Jarrod's grandmother.

Here is the view from the front foyer area into the living room and into the dining room.
