Getting Settled

Yeah! I finally have Internet tonight after Terence spent an hour on the phone with AT&T. We are getting settled and Terence has been working on hanging blinds around the house. It's nice to have a little bit of privacy and not wonder if neighbors are peeking in! We did order one for the door, but it was the wrong size so we have to re-order another blind.
I got this clock the other day...not so sure about it. What do you think?
The mantle just looked so bare....
I have put up some of my Christmas decorations and now
I finally have a reason to use those glass jars :)
I just need a TREE now!!!
I saw this idea in Pottery Barn where they used the fake snow and ornaments in them.
Only I went to Hobby Lobby and got 3 bags of snow for $2 and two packages of
ornaments for less than $10 and there ya have it...decorating on a budget!
We also got a rug and put that in, it's really neutral...but we are pretty plain folks!
I am sure this decorating thing will come with time.
New washer and dryers are in
Glass bowl at TJ Maxx for $12
It's pretty big even though it doesn't look like it in the picture
More Christmas stuff
I also got these candle holders at TJ Maxx for less than $10 for the pair!
Woohoo! So that is all my "decor" so far...trying to contain myself and not overload on decorating so we can spend money on more important things like baby Connor, but it's so hard to move into a new home and not want to decorate!
but.....
He's gonna need lots of diapers this next year, so I think I can handle it :)

I have that same fruit bowl from TJ Maxx.

Clearly we shop at the same stores. Even from 600 miles away.

I have the EXACT same washer and dryer and let me just say that I'm so happy that yours go from washer to dryer... Mine are dryer then washer when looking from left to right because of the idiot who built our house... When they're set like mine, the door bang together when you're switching over the clothes! :) So, I'm happy that yours wont! LOL

BTW, those decorations look so cute!

Great idea with the x-mas decorations. I like that they are not the traditional green and red. The colors are soooo pretty, and remind me of winter.

Missy said...

The decorations are great!

I love the mantle and think the clock looks great. Good job and congrats on the new house!

Rachel said...

I love the clock. Could it go a little higher? The decorations are so cute. I would be so excited to decorate too!

Tristan said...

I love it all! I cannot believe that you have Christmas stuff up already! You are a nut.

I am so happy you are getting settled. Your dreams are all coming true. Love you!

I love the clock! And lucky you on the washer and dryer...I'm hoping to upgrade to something like that when we are done with construction. (I think I said that almost a year ago...let's hope another year goes by and I am not saying that any longer!)

Found some at Pottery Barn I just can't see spending $30+ on them..

Everything looks great though. =)
