We Moved!

Monday, May 18, 2020

Back in August of 2019 we decided it was time for our family to make a move. I had always said that if our boys both got into Envision Science Academy, (ESA) a charter school, that we should move into the Traditions neighborhood. ESA is in the middle of Traditions. Shortly after that, both boys were proud Eagles at ESA and I again mentioned that we should move. 

We listed our beloved house and it went under contract in 10 days. These are some of the MLS shots from the listing. Prepare for photo overload. This is really a digital scrapbook for me to remember our house on Everstone Road. 

This yard and our community of wonderful neighbors is what we miss the most. All the neighborhood kids gathered here to play soccer, baseball, football, nerf wars, you name it and it was played in this yard.

It was definitely tough to leave this home behind. We spent 7 years there.

I hope you all have a great week! 

2 Story Foyer to Larger Bonus Room

Friday, January 30, 2015

Happy Saturday!  I started a new job January 12th has my head spinning!  I have a lot to learn and I am loving it.  I don't know if it's the career change or the fact that it is a new year, but my creative wheels are spinning in terms of our house.

We built our house and shortly after moving in we wished that we had the builder frame our 2 story foyer as a 1 story foyer which would then provide an additional 60 square feet to our bonus room upstairs.  We are currently reviewing quotes from contractors to do just that.  In the mean time, this is what I am picturing for the space.  

I am no longer in love with our big, brown sectional that was in our old living  room, but it is comfortable and practically indestructible.  I really can't justify replacing it in our boys' hangout room.  

My goals for the new space include:
TV Watching
Beverage & Snack Center
Floor space to wrestle (they are boys after all)

The boys will still use the Dining Room aka Lego Library for lego building.

To meet these goals we need:
2 desks on casters and desk chairs
Bean bag chairs
Mini fridge
Wall Art
Window treatments-shades and cornices (this is embarrassing...we have paper shades in here still)

Do you have a kid/teen hangout space?  What are essential functions in the space?

Boys room progress (part 2)

Sunday, October 26, 2014

We are slowly making more and more progress on our boys' bedroom.  The rest of my family was gone this week.  Yeah, I know you are jealous! 

It left a lot if free time so that I could paint their Star Wars canvases.  I also squeezed in a huge abstract 3' x 4' for my neighbor and maybe some shopping and happy hour with a good friend.

It looks fabulous in her 2 story stairwell.

We spent this afternoon installing wood toned Ikea Lack floating shelves and galvanized letters.

My cute little helpers!

M&L love this arrow shelf.  I am not sure where it's going, but I have to find a spot for it since they love it so much.
