I mentioned a blog post or two ago that I would write about our new house. So I will. It's fabulous. We love it. Since we decided to build rather quickly we didn't have a long list of must-haves. But thanks to pinterest we managed to incorporate a dining room bench and mud room/laundry room lockers. The overall process was very smooth and lasted about 3.5 months. Like I mentioned before the house is smaller than our old one but it's a lot more functional. We have plenty of space. We have some empty cupboards even. Most everything has a place. Just wished it magically ended up there daily.
Even though we have space we decided to move forward with the basement finishing. Mostly so the kids can have their own bedrooms. Even though Lily and Harrison had their own rooms in our old house they shared a bunk bed in Lily's room (Harrison had a bed just never chose to sleep in it). I didn't think they would mind if we continued this process but I was wrong. Not long after moving in Lily was requesting her own room. I thought some fun, neutral decor would help. It didn't. I thought giving her choice of top bunk or bottom bunk would help. It didn't. I can say I'm beyond excited about decorating a very girlie room for her. Again, thanks to Pinterest it's gonna rock!
