Pin It Now!

Adding a little personality to our home Made a big difference in my week.

Pin It Now!

I have been in a little funk lately as far as wanting to unpack, something just hasn't been feeling right. I finally figured it out.... We just needed a little personal touches on the walls and around the house. Let me tell you, that simple task changed the whole mood of our home.
Bathroom is going Nautical since we are so close to the lake, starting with the shower curtain, some DIY coming soon.
Continuing with owls in the kitchen for a little whimsy and was so happy to find some with the turquoise that will be one of our main kitchen accent colors, best thing is I got these free with a coupon from Jcpenney that showed up in my mailbox yesterday, $10 off a $10 purchase!

  My crosses are back up and blessing this house, the exciting thing is I now have room for so many more. So if you are ever in doubt for a gift for me, a fun and or different cross will join my wall happily.

Not always our plan but ALWAYS GOD's plan!

Pin It Now!
So we had planned to move to New Haven and get a new manufactured home but that was not God's plan. So instead we are moving to Harrison Township and we are loving it. The more that New Haven did not work out the more this new house we found seemed to fit more for our family. It is halfway in between our old house and Nick's new work. It is a shorter distance to Dave's work and Taylor and Alyx are only 15 minutes from work and we are only 15 minutes from my Mom and Dad and Auntie. Also this puts us in walking distance of metro beach and there is a fabulous park around the corner. The house has so much more living space. There is no fenced in yard but Alyx is putting in an aerial dog run and there is no basement so now I am able to do the laundry more and the kitchen is absolutely huge. No more moldy leaky basement and no more busy street with a school. I think this is going to be the perfect. Here is some moving pics to tide you over until we get settled.

Happy 17th Birthday Taylor

Pin It Now!   I cannot believe that here we are celebrating Taylor's 17th Birthday. He is a Senior this year and I am sure I am going to cry a lot this year. So many changes. We got the keys to our new house today and he said it was the best birthday present ever. We celebrated by going to his favorite restaurant for lunch and because it was election day his girlfriend had the day off of school. Everyone got to come as it worked out perfectly with work schedules and such. He had a blast as usual and was excited to show his girlfriend Kelsey our new house for a few minutes after lunch. We hope to be sleeping in the new house by the weekend. If Taylor has his way it will be tomorrow lol. Alyx is leaving for a work trip tomorrow so I do not know how much we will get done with him gone but I am definitely motivated. Our new house is 500 sq ft bigger than our last and no more leaky basement. There are so many exciting new things happening this year that I am sure Taylor would agree and say this is the best year ever by the time his birthday rolls around next year.

Pin It Now!

   4 years.... This is the longest we have lived in any one house. This time it is not entirely my choice to move. Now don't get me wrong, I have been itching to move for awhile but when you get a notice that your crazy landlord is raising the rent from $950 to $1200 beginning December 1. It makes that itch a full blown attack of I want out of here. We are heading North again God willing to New Haven. A little bit of country is something I have been longing for. A sense of quiet and a reason to stay home more. All things are pointing us in this direction so I truly believe it is in God's plan. Nick got a new job and starts in 2 weeks and the new house will be just 5 miles away from his new job, Dave can transfer to a store close to the new house. My new job which starts Thursday is starting out as seasonal but if it ends up permanent after the new year I can transfer closer as well. It is a beautiful place and brand new. Everyone would have their own room, and I would finally have my dream kitchen. The bonus a family room and a living room. My craft room will share the family room. We are hoping to hear something tomorrow. PRAYERS PLEASE. We need and want this so much. Our family needs a fresh start, there are just too many painful memories here since Grandma passed away. This would be our first house in 12 years that she did not live in with us. While I am sad about that I have a renewed faith that she would want us to move forward and be happy once again.

   New adventures await us and I have Faith that God everything in Control.
