Some updates and goings on

Just checking in here on the ole blog – things have been going pretty much Groundhog Day like around these parts but something fun – they broke ground on our new house this week and started on the foundation! Wahoo!


Its just lots of dirt, gravel, and bricks right now but soon it’ll be an awesome house!


And I wanted to share what will likely be my favorite part of the new house-  the KITCHEN. You guys. So we went in lots of houses with the same plan as ours and we took pictures of the kitchens because the kitchen is what sold us on this house.  Check it out:


Obviously from two different houses (ours will look more like the picture above than the one below, minus the backsplash)


SO MANY CABINETS. SO MUCH SPACE.  I’m so pumped for this. :)

I’ll leave you with a couple pics of some cute kiddos!

Some news!

Things have been quiet over on this little ole blog, I know…I’ve still got writers block and an ailment called “I have a toddler and an infant and can barely find time to shower” but hopefully things will get back on track soon.

With that said, we have some news to share!

And NO I’m not pregnant :)

We are moving!

We sold our current house kind of out of the blue and have purchased a lot in an awesome neighborhood in Ashland, VA!


Our house will be ready mid-late August and we couldn’t be more excited.  We’ve already come in contact with several neighbors who are all wonderful, we know another family who is moving in a few houses down, and there is an awesome playground that Brooke already loves, walking trails, and lots of neighborhood activities!


If you’ve been a reader for a long time, you may remember that this is how this little blog started, when Robert and I built our first (current) home in 2010. We learned so many lessons when we built this house and we’ve already assured the builder of our new home that we may be pains but we know what we want and will be picky. Hopefully they are cool with that :)

So a lot of my free time in the coming months will be dedicated to packing up our current place and running out to Ashland to see how things are coming along.  We can’t wait for August and our new digs!  I’ll share more about the house and the plan we chose soon!  Stay tuned!
