BEFORE and AFTER Pictures

We have really started unpacking and getting things done with our house! I have a lot of decorating to do... and of course, Pinterest is going to come in to play here too, but that will all take some time! :) However, I thought I would show a couple of BEFORE and AFTER pictures for you all to see our progress!
LIVING ROOM: BEFORE

We have a HUGE living room, but this is the part with the fire place. I LOVE it.
LIVING ROOM: AFTER

I think it's really starting to come together! I'll show the other side of the living room soon! When I took these pictures, my parents were sitting over there LOL

1 Year Anniversary.. A Reflection :)

In 1 week, my husband and I will have been married for ONE year.


It has been a unique year for us, to be honest.


At almost 7 months pregnant, we went to the court house and got married. We had our sweet baby girl in March. We moved out of our trailer in June. We moved in with my parents at the end of June. We made an offer on a home in September. And we are currently moving in to our new home. It has been one crazy adventure so far.


But that's not really what this post is about. This post is a reflection.. and it will reveal the secrets I have learned this first year of marriage. My experience could be similar to yours or it could be entirely different. Either way, I hope you enjoy.


1. They weren't kidding about that ridiculous thing called COMPROMISE. Ugh. I'd heard of it, but it was never really spoken in my presence. I'm as stubborn as they come. I refused to say sorry, because come on.. what would *I* have to be sorry about? I was typically right... (That was my mind s…

THE HOUSE IS.... OURS!

THE HOUSE IS OURS!
THANK YOU JESUS!
We closed on the house yesterday, thank You Lord! We were SO excited to get over there... as soon as they gave us the keys, we were out the door, haha! And guess what we walked in to?

The previous homeowners gave us some house-warming presents! :) They bought balloons that said "Welcome home" and had a picture of all of us on the mantle. They also bought us an end table for our living room that had a Scentsy warmer on it with a scent. It was SO sweet of them and above and beyond all that we could have expected. Honestly, all we expected to walk in to OUR HOME. 
I could have just bawled my eyes out yesterday. All of these blessings and sometimes I just don't feel deserving, but I am thankful that He sees us through His eyes and not the eyes of others. 
I took 22 BEFORE pictures of the house so I could do comparisons as we begin decorating and putting our furniture up. Of course, I'll post all of those so stay tuned for that :)
Than…

Closing.... TOMORROW!

This is going to be a short update, but I'll post more later!
WE CLOSE TOMORROW!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS..
So, with that closing, I plan on posting BEFORE pictures without our furniture and other nifty things in it. Then, once we get everything together, I want to post AFTER shots :) I am so beyond excited! It's possession upon closure, so we are going to be pretty busy this week packing and moving. Yea boy!  On a sad note..
I need my wisdom teeth cut out. Pronto. Boo. I'll post more about that once I know the details too! 
But other than that, 
I am SUPER excited and cannot wait to share this beautiful new chapter with all of you! Wish us luck! :)
