Final Step of the Move and Some Laid Back Days

Day 334 of 365- November 29th We had a laid back day, with school being a little lighter than normal. (We love it when this happens… a rare occasion!)  After a trip to the toy store to look for some Christmas gifts for cousins, the only purchases made were some Legomen organizers for our boys.  Oy vey. The cases were only a couple bucks but I am always up for organization!  Plus- look at the smiles. Day 335 of 365- November 30th Friday night was “Movie Night” in our house.  Tonight’s choice was Polar Express.  Caleb had never seen the movie before and was...

LSU vs. Mississippi State

Day 315 of 365- November 10th When we moved here we made the boys a promise… We would take them to 1 football game at LSU.  You see, this town bleeds purple and gold.  People decorate with the color duo, have entire wardrobes in just those 2 colors, and every weekend during football season, the town goes crazy!  Banners are on most cars, and the traffic in and around the stadium is at a stand still.  It is impossible to not get into it. Today was our day.  We bought the tickets several weeks ago.  It was the homecoming game for LSU, that meant even more fun activities to do on...

Around the House- The Kitchen

Day 237 of 365- August 24th We put the contract on this house just a few days before the final selections & colors were going to be ordered.  We were fortunate because they were planning on an orange/black/grey theme in the kitchen.  It was horrible!  We changed everything, making sure to keep it neutral for resale.  We love how it turned out and by the time things were completed, the builder & installers came around to our selections as...

Around the House- The Master & Study/Entry

Day 223 of 365- August 10th One of my favorite things about the master bedroom is the location.  The long hallway leads to our room.  Waking up to the sunlight that comes in through the hall windows has been a great way to wake up each day.   Day 224 of 365- August 11th And now for the Study & Entry.  As you can see, I had some props for these photos! He’s smiling because he got to put his feet on the desk.  (This will be the only time that will happen!) I lost track of how many times they rang the doorbell during this...

Around the House- The School Room

Day 222 of 365- August 9th Now that school has started for us, a big part of our day is spent in the school room.   Finding a house with a room for school was a priority for us.  The room we are using as our school room was labeled as an exercise room or Study on the official blueprint of the house.  We decided to use the dining room for a study because we never really used our dining room in Chicago.  That left this room open for us to use as a school room.  It is right off the kitchen which makes it very convenient and out of the way which helps to keep it quiet when necessary.  Lots...
