Getting Settled

Yeah! I finally have Internet tonight after Terence spent an hour on the phone with AT&T. We are getting settled and Terence has been working on hanging blinds around the house. It’s nice to have a little bit of privacy and not wonder if neighbors are peeking in! We did order one for the door, but it was the wrong size so we have to re-order another blind.

I got this clock the other day…not so sure about it. What do you think?
The mantle just looked so bare….
I have put up some of my Christmas decorations and now
I finally have a reason to use those glass jars 🙂
I just need a TREE now!!!
I saw this idea in Pottery Barn where they used the fake snow and ornaments in them.
Only I went to Hobby Lobby and got 3 bags of snow for $2 and two packages of
ornaments for less than $10 and there ya have it…decorating on a budget!

We also got a rug and put that in, it’s really neutral…but we are pretty plain folks!
I am sure this decorating thing will come with time.

New washer and dryers are in

Glass bowl at TJ Maxx for $12
It’s pretty big even though it doesn’t look like it in the picture

More Christmas stuff

I also got these candle holders at TJ Maxx for less than $10 for the pair!
Woohoo! So that is all my “decor” so far…trying to contain myself and not overload on decorating so we can spend money on more important things like baby Connor, but it’s so hard to move into a new home and not want to decorate!
He’s gonna need lots of diapers this next year, so I think I can handle it 🙂

  1. I love it all! I cannot believe that you have Christmas stuff up already! You are a nut.

    I am so happy you are getting settled. Your dreams are all coming true. Love you!

  2. I love the clock! And lucky you on the washer and dryer…I’m hoping to upgrade to something like that when we are done with construction. (I think I said that almost a year ago…let’s hope another year goes by and I am not saying that any longer!)

  3. OMG love the jars…. I’ve been looking everywhere for jars like that!

    Found some at Pottery Barn I just can’t see spending $30+ on them..

    Everything looks great though. =)
