The post will lots of pictures of my messy house.

I promised pictures of the new house, I know. But our house still looks a lot like this.

And this.

But don't worry. Even though I haven't finished unpacking, I did manage to find time to ROYGBIV my closet. Although, I still haven't gotten them back into sleeve length order or ironed all the clothes that are hanging in there. I know. The shame.

We are settling in despite not quite being unpacked. There are things I really love so far about this house.

Like this little craft and computer area for the kids.

And the kitchen. Although this kitchen is on our to-do list. The black appliances will be gone oh-so-shortly. Actually the new appliances are sitting in the garage. But we still have boxes everywhere, like we have had time to put in a new oven.

And that I can see the TV from the kitchen. I suddenly like cooking so much more.

And I love that we have doors to our office that is way at the front of the house. I can actually talk to clients on the phone after the kids get off of school.

And how our dining room table is no longer the drop off spot for bills and backpacks and such. Although, you wouldn't know that now with a stapler and paint samples all over it. But for real. It is clear of junk almost all of the time!

And the kids' bathroom actually has drawers. The bathroom itself is smaller, but it is more functional. Plus, we have a third bathroom and upstairs attached to another bedroom. I am sure when Jill gets a bit older, she will move up there.

On my to-do list for today is buying the paint for the girls' rooms, the dining room, and the living room. The plain beige walls are driving me insane. I have great, big grand plans for the kids' rooms.
After pictures coming soon.
Don't hold your breath. Soon = sometime in the next year.

I love the open kitchen, cooking is so much better when you don't feel like you're alone when you're doing it. The house is beautiful and I'm sure it will just get better once you add your touch to it.

See. I told Kenny it is completely normal that I organize my closet like that!

The house is great and your kitchen is the exact same color scheme mine is...funny. Now, do you get Kenny to ROYGBIV his side of the closet?

I am Trish Marie said...

Ha! Hardly! This is Kenny we are speaking of. Although, he side is organized by shirt type, so I don't really see why he makes fun of me so much!
