I added a few more pillows in beige from serena and lily and my pottery barn beige flower pillow! Sometimes in design you need to add something after looking at it for a day ... And I think adding these pillows were the extra touch needed!

We are settling in nicely to our new home! Yesterday we had our first family day at the new house! We took a long walk exploring our new neighborhood. Later on, My husband put the couch together last night ! Yay!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!!

I was trying to make my husband happy by saving money by ordering most of the new furniture we needed for the house from Ikea but I'm not sure he will be so happy putting it all together! Yikes!
But I'm so excited to finally have furniture to sit on! I'm also excited to see it all come together. By saving money on Ikea pieces I was able to splurge on a gorgeous serena and lily ottoman and pillows !
I'll just have to wait a few more weeks on those items! More pictures to come soon!

After driving ten hours in the car with two children through rain storms and a tornado alert we made it safely to our new home! Did I mention we never saw the house or town in person? Everything happened so suddenly that we found a house online and signed on the dotted line without seeing it first! Crazy I know!!! Luckily it is just as beautiful in person as it was in the pictures and the neighborhood is picture perfect! That was a huge blessing!
She left this morning and I can't help but feel emotional! My mom is my best friend and before the move we would see each other almost daily! It will certainly be an adjustment living so far from her and the rest of my family! I have never lived more than 10 miles from my family. I even commuted to college! Haha
On a more cheerful note , decorating the new house has been fun! I started to design one of the guestbedrooms (more pictures to come soon)!
I also finally have a proper place for my milk glass that my father had collected for me piece by piece!
And we have only had a few moving casualties! I was sad to see one of our dining room chairs had sadly ripped a hole in the back ... But at the end of the day it is just a chair ! What matters most is that we are all are safe and sound especially during our 10 hour ride through a tornado alert! Talk about stressful!!!
It has been an exciting, adventurous , emotional and exhausting week to say the least! But we are settling in well and im so happy that my kids are adjusting well and seem to be content in their new home! I apologize for the lack of posts these last few weeks ! In sorry to anyone left a comment or email that I have not responded to yet! I will get back on track soon!
Today I will try not to miss family and I am counting my blessings and relaxing with my kids on this beautiful fall Saturday! My son in watching toy story for the millionth time while wearing his buzz lightyear halloween costume ( that he refuses to take off)!
Just an easy and relaxing day! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend too!
