Farmhouse life: three days in.

Everyone has been asking for pictures, so here ya go.

Yesterday my mother-in-law took the girls for a few hours and I was able to knock out a lot (and Nic came and helped me for two hours!!!).  It finally feels a little more like a home and not like we're living among boxes. There are a few more boxes to be unpacked, things/areas that need to be organized, and of course, decorating in general, but here's what we're looking like three days in...




Okay, this room was originally going to be a small playroom, but after two nights, we kicked Amelia out of our bedroom and set it up as her little nursery.....and it may now be one of my favorite spaces in the house.  We are not a co-sleeping family at all.  David and I consider our bedroom our sanctuary and our own space.  We're not so hardcore that we don't allow our kids in our room at all, but we don't like them in there 24/7, so we needed to come up with a different plan.  This weekend we're going to hang a curtain across to make it more shut off, but 24 hours in, it's working perfectly.  Oddly, she's been sleeping/napping like a champ in it.







And because you know I like to keep things real...


So, things seem a little less overwhelming than they did on Tuesday.

We still have a long list of projects to be tackled, but it will take time and of course, I'll update every so often.

Just been getting caught up. SO exciting! Love the new place - and I can't believe how much you have done and put up since you moved in. Great progress!

I just wanted to say I LOOOOVE the farm house...and Jemale and I have always wanted a farm ourselves (when I say always, it really means for the last 4 yrs, aka after I spent a month in OKC with a goat farmer as a professor lol) It has so much character!
