house decor & stuff

Thanks for all of you who are all excited for me and my new house! EEP! I'm super excited! I mean, i'm trying to chill because it's still 594040 years before we actually get to move, so i am trying to tame my enthusiasm just a bit. But really... last time i wrote was July 27th & here it is mid-August! We should close Sept 9. Maybe sooner. Hopefully not later.

But it's such a cute little house & I will show you a picture once we close. Even though it's gonna happen... i feel weird about posting a pic before we do.

I can show you all that I've been pinning, though! Because a new house means new decor, DUH.

So, my living room will be grays with accents of teal. Or aqua. Or something. Light gray walls, new sectional in gray, cute little accent chair (in teal), throw pillows (teal), rug (a little teal), picture frames (teal). You get the idea? Definitely a wall gallery on the wall behind the couch. YES! Kitchen will be the same (gray & teal) because the kitchen opens into the den. We got new wood floors! They are so beautiful!! I am so excited to get away from the GREEN CARPET I've been looking at since i married Brad over 5 years ago! Haha!

Basically, THIS is my vision... there won't be a window behind the couch... there will be some teal accents... but you get the idea, right? 

SO far, thanks to my mother who shows excitement by buying things (AHEM!), I have an adorable accent chair. It's comfy too!

I also bought this print from etsy. I don't know if it will be in the gallery or somewhere else. But i love it.

I haven't gotten it (yet?), but i love this rug!

So fun!!! And i definitely want this letter V for our wall gallery... probably in teal, though. Ha. (Don't freak out. Won't be too much teal once i add in all the gray! Just little pops of teal!)

I guess that's all for now. Although you should go to my "master bedroom" pinterest board & tell me which comforter you like best - or if you have seen another one i might like! Haha! (Ours is so old and faded & i want a new one.)

So yeah... we've been busy with work & home buying (which is just...man! So. Much. Paperwork!). The department that handles the type of loan we are getting, they are 3 weeks behind. And our papers should go to their office in the next few days. Which will put us on time for our closing date of Sept 9! I would love for it to happen sooner... but i hope it's not pushed back later! And i hope the time flies! (So far, so good... i suppose.)

The other thing i wanted to tell you is my parents got a pool ... the pool guys started working on Monday & it was DONE by Thursday! DANG! Isn't it wonderful!? I was gonna show you a picture, but i had to save all my pics from my phone onto my computer sunday & delete them off my phone (out of storage) & now i can't find it. Oops.

But Saturday we are having a pool party, so i'll be sure to get some pics!! :)

Another fun thing... i am doing whole30. Okay, that's not fun. But it's necessary. I am on Day 12. Doing good so far. :)

Alrighty... i think i've caught you up on my life. Hope your week is great! :)


  1. It's great to hear from you!! So many of my bloggie friends are buying/building news homes lately, how exciting. All of your decorating ideas sound lovely!

  2. Love EVERYTHING!! Gray and teal are just fabulous. I should know, since I just decorated my nursery in those colors and am currently surrounded by them, hahaha. But that Etsy print-- MUST HAVE IT. PLEASE tell me where you found it!!!

  3. I'm pretty sure I didn't post a thing about our house until after we closed because I was afraid to jinx it, so I completely understand feeling weird about posting pictures. And our house is basically all blue tones, so I definitely agree with your current color scheme!

  4. Can't wait to see it all come together!!

    Out of the ones you have pinned... I'm liking this comforter...

  5. i'm so excited for you guys!! everything is adorable that you have picked out...can't wait to see it all come together!!

  6. Yay! I can't wait to see the place!

  7. I LOVE all of your house decor ideas! I can't wait to see pictures of everything!

  8. So exciting about your new house! Yay! I love what you are doing with your color scheme and decor. That print is perfect!

  9. I LOVE your d├ęcor stuff!! I just recently re-did our living room with teal accents. But our walls and couches are brown so I went that direction. Would have preferred to go with grey though. I'll have to check out your boards on Pinterest. :)
