Hooray! After an entire week of unloading box after box, we are 99% unpacked! I am so excited! Now that the moving is done, I feel like we can finally start living in our new home.
As motivation to clean up all of the random odds and ends, I spent yesterday picking up enough to shoot a photo of each room. So in case you're interested, here's a photo journey through our new home.
When you enter the house, you first come into the living room.
Straight behind it, we have the kitchen. Jason has plans to knock out the window and put in french doors that open up onto the patio instead. Serious plans--as in, we've already special ordered the door. I love being married to an architect who studied construction! :) Oh, and the fridge is a new acquisition. Jason wishes that it were stainless steel to match the other appliances, but I'm secretly grateful for aluminum since it doesn't show fingerprints.
The girls wanted to show off a few of the grapes they picked in the backyard.
I don't have a picture of the inside of our one-car garage, but I'm proud to say that it's now empty enough to actually park in it. There's not much extra wiggle room, so that means it's almost completely bare.
Moving upstairs, we have the master bedroom. (This room is in major need of a make-over, beginning with a new bed. We were very grateful to acquire this one as newlyweds, but we're definitely ready to move on to something that isn't accompanied by a fifty-year genealogy of all the people who have slept in it.)
On the positive side, the view outside is nice.
The upstairs bathroom is looking better, thanks to a new shower curtain and towels.
And, Eli finally has a crib of his own. Up until now, he's been in a co-sleeper next to our bed. This is the first time we've had the space to set up a nursery, so I'm excited to finally use this adorable train bed set. (It was purchased years ago when we thought Talia might be a boy.)
Eli likes his new room, too. (Even if it does mean finally learning how to sleep on his own.)
Downstairs we have the girls room.
It may look like they sleep in bunk beds, but they informed me last night that it's actually a canoe. Here they are paddling with ice cream spoons.
Their bathroom has a small shower with a laundry closet--not much to brag about.
But the photographer is sure cute!
And here, Kara models the downstairs playroom.
One more photo of the downstairs playspace/office/guest room. And thus concludes our virtual tour. Yippee!
Coming soon: outside pics.
