Things are looking up.

It has been several weeks since my last post. Honestly, I haven't actually wanted to think or especially write about the progress of our home. There have been many, many, many "accidents" in the last few weeks. Everything from people falling through the ceiling to a MASSIVE sheet rock dust disaster. Luckily, those day have past and I can finally (literally, from all of the dust) breathe again. We are about half way though this process and I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel. We went to IKEA for the first time last Sunday. If you have never been, stop what you are doing and plan a trip right now! It was so worth the drive and traffic and bug bite I encountered while shopping. I purchased so many things but my favorite purchase was definitely my living room furniture! I bought the EKTORP love seat and chaise with the white slipcover and the EKTORP chair in white as well. I LOVE THIS FURNITURE! Although, I have only had it 1 week, I'm absolutely in love. It's very comfortable and SO affordable! This is what the living room looks like right now...

It's pretty empty, aside from the furniture, but a huge step up from the previous look of the room! Our bedroom furniture was delivered last week and our mattress came yesterday. Everything is starting to come together, slowly. When I look back and think, it's only been 2 months, I realize how much progress we have made. I think we will be able to move in by the end of July! On an unrelated note, if you are in the market to have your family or child's picture taken, by friend Katie Myrick took pictures of my husband and I last week and I could not be happier, I love every one of them!

She did an awesome job and is the sweetest person to work with! Hopefully I will have a few "finished" pictures to share soon! Have a GREAT weekend!!
