Life Update

I've been kind of MIA lately and I've been keeping a little secret too...

My husband and I (and Aubrey) have been busy designing our new home!

We've been living together and renting for 9 years now so it's finally our time to have a home of our own. The serious talks about buying a home started when we decided to start our little family. We looked at a bunch of homes but just couldn't find one that felt right for us so when I was halfway through my pregnancy we decided to put house hunting on hold for a while.

Shortly after Aubrey was born- right around the time that all of her stuff started taking over the house- we decided that we needed to do something about our situation. We are quickly outgrowing our small rental house.

To make a long story short, a random discussion on Easter Sunday led to my husband convincing me that we should make a big move to the country and build a home. Crazy, right? It took a lot of convincing because the "country" that I'm referring to means moving back to my hometown. The same hometown that I couldn't get out of fast enough when I graduated high school. -Cue another moment of realization- that I am in fact really a grown up, like the mature somewhat level-headed kind. My parents moved from the city to the country when I was little and now here I am making the same move for my little girl. History does repeat itself, I suppose.

We're hoping to move in before the holidays. *fingers crossed that the construction crews stay on schedule* Little by little we're I'm going to start sorting through all of the stuff that we've accumulated over the last 9 years and start donating, selling, and packing.

Coming Soon... BLOG SALE!
I'm going to add a blog sale tab in the upcoming weeks where I'll be selling some clothing, jewelry, and shoes. Mostly shoes because lets face it... my 6 inch platform stilettos aren't going to cut it when I'm running around the woods after a little one. My lifestyle has changed. Drastically. No more clubbing, no more Saturday nights at the bar, and Sunday Fun Days have taken on a whole new meaning. Let the closet cleansing commence!

  2. At first I thought you were going to announce another pregnancy lol! Congrats on the new home and new move back to your hometown. I still basically live in the same town I grew up in, and although it does feel tiresome, it's a great place to have a family. I wish you nothing but the best :) I can't wait to see any decor tips!
