Home Sweet Home

By Invitation Only...
You are invited to see the inside of our lovely first home! We have lived here for TWO years exactly and are so sad to sell it! It was the perfect house for us....perfect size, big backyard, empty lot next door, and a big field behind us, which means, no back neighbors! We moved into this house the week after we were married. This house has been with us through so many memoies: job losses, new jobs, three dogs, many visitors, updates/remodeling, etc! We are super sad to leave it behind, but very excited about the new adventure ahead of us. We cannot WAIT to move back home! We got a contract on our house the Sunday before last and made an offer on our new house this past Sunday!
Some had asked for me to post pictures on my blog so that you might be able to see the inside. The lighting was kind of off, so the pictures might not be amazing! I hope you enjoy! (I know...there are quite a few pics!)

The front of the house...
This is our living room...we LOVE our big leather sectional! Notice my handmade curtains!
Casey's office...he painted that desk himself!
The master bedroom...I will miss that cute red wall!
Our upstairs bonus room that we recently converted to a sitting area!
The backside of our living room...I am looking forward to possibly doing a built-in for the TV in our next house.
The kitchen...it's actually a chocolate brown, but sometimes looks a little green-sih...don't mind that! In our new house, the cabinets are stained and I am excited! I do not like the wood colored cabinets.

The guest bedroom - I am thinkong fo re-doing this in the next house. This was Casey's comforter from college...we just really like how comfy it is! I am giong to need some ideas for the next house!

The guest bathroom...this is my favorite room in the whole house!
One side of the dining room - we didn't want a dining table yet, so it's a make-shift reading nook.

The other side of the dining room/reading nook.

Our breakfast area....LOVE my curtains in here! They really dressed this room a lot!
Well...I hope you enjoyed my little home tour! I would love any suggestions or ideas that you might have for me! I will fill you in more in my next post about our new house! We cannot wait to get moved and start over with a new clean slate!

Congratulations! I remember when we sold our first home - mixed emotions... I was sad to see it go but SO excited about the future as I'm sure you are! Congrats again - I hope and pray everything goes smoothly with the offer on your next house and that you are able to close quickly! :)

I found your blog through a friend's, and I just had to say that I am in LOVE with that Texas desk!!! My hubby and I are from Texas although we currently live in Virginia. I showed my husband that desk, and he now wants to paint one too so we can show off our Texas pride here in VA! :) Any tips you have on the desk would be soooo appreciated!!
