Progress

Five truckloads, a few bruises, two room dilemmas and one scared kitty later, the fiance and I are officially in the new house. It was a lot of work, but we managed to move all of our possessions in one weekend (Observation: if you want to deter hoarding, make a person pack and move all of their own ish by themselves).

It might be a few more days before I post again since it's super busy around these parts: Unpacking the new place, cleaning the old place, Thanksgiving, Apple Cup, the fiance's parents coming to town, preparing for my cross-country road trip, still no Internet at the new house ... So I wanted to share a glimpse of the early stages of the living room pre boxes and miscellaneous furniture overflow. This picture might be more for my sanity and serve as a reminder it did look semi-normal at one time.

By no means am I a professional interior designer, and the living room and office are proving to be a little challenging. But I like to keep it real around here, so I present to you the unfinished and unstyled living room.

And now it's back to cleaning the old place ... Maid service anyone?!


Sunset from the backyard ... Pardon the leaves.

I already LOVE it and I may be biased, but I do think you are a pretty "rad" interior designer. I love everything you do with your place!

Happy Thanksgiving Jonalynn!!

p.s. I'm stilllllllllllllll unpacking. You should see the shiz I just moved to my garage on top of boxes and boxes of shiz that was already in there. I've decided that all that crap in my garage is stuff I obviously don't need, so I plan on selling it all in a garage sale. I need to learn to let go. Like legit I found earrings and broken jewelery that for some reason I felt the need to hold onto???? NO mam. Good bye junk.

Girl, what are you talking about? I think you're a great interior designer! I can't wait to see what color you paint the backs of the bookcases!

PS: LOVE your rug :)

I've been wanting a chevron rug just like yours! It's weird how a simple rug can turn a plain room into a chic living space. :)

And I love how you have a pool!
