Have you ever had a weekend where you sat down at the end,
reflected on the happenings and said,
"Damn, I'm good."
We did. For good reason.
Our house that was once a chaotic monstrosity, is now a calm haven.
It took a lot of work, peeps, a lot of work. And a few injuries.
I have now been injured in spots I never thought bruises were possible. Weird. I can't even explain how weird, but that's all I'll say about that.
I managed to take a few pictures yesterday...the main parts of the house are still under construction awaiting curtains, bedding, etc, but here are a few of my favorite spots!
Welcome to our new home!
The entrance feels so friendly and welcoming
A special spot for Ryan's garden statue...the one that used to have a baseball bat in the little boy's hand...wonder how that happened.
Our painting is the first thing you see as you open the door!
Preston informed me last night that I need 2 lamps on the buffet. Thanks, pal.
To the left is Ryan's office...the picture quality isn't very good, but you get the idea. =)
I love picture walls...this one isn't finished. I love walking by and seeing the faces of the people I love. =)
The reason I like this spot is beacause Ryan and I received the glass/iron platter as a wedding gift but never really had a good place to display it. Same issue with the blue and white tequila bottle, Clase Azul, we purchased on our most recent trip to Mexico. We tasted it for the first time at a friend's 40th birthday party, and Ryan discovered how good it was for cigar dipping. Everytime we travel to Mexico, we buy a unique bottle to add to our collection.
My infamous ottamon. Love it.
Here are the fabrics I am using in the family room. I had a lady I met monogram...with Ryan's and my initials...the black velvet fabric that I am going to make into pillows for our sofa:
In the kitchen...click on the pic, and read the wine bottle label!
See this chandelier from our kitchen...Ryan and I hung it all.by.ourselves. this weekend. No, it was not fun. Yes, it was tedious. But worth it.
Hello, Mr. Wine Chiller! I love you very much!
I cannot even begin to describe their reaction!
So many good times ahead for our family!
Happy Monday, friends!!!
