2 years ago this week....

While sitting with some friends this weekend, I realized that Ike and I moved into our new house 2 years ago on the 19th. We were so excited when we were approved for our new house. We got even more excited as walls went up, cabinets went in, and tile and carpet were put down. When move-in time finally came, it felt like a dream come true.

Well, it's been 2 years and we still love our house, our neighborhood and most of our neighbors, with the exception of the 2 large dogs that live next door and bark every time we go outside. They especially like to bark while we are outside enjoying the pool and patio. Nothing like a relaxing swim while the dogs bark!

You would think that in the 2 years we have been here, the yard landscaping would be finished and look great, that all the walls and rooms would be decorated, and that we would have finally found the time to clean out the garage so that both our cars can fit it. Sadly, that is not the case. There are plenty more landscaping tasks that I would like to do, pictures/decorations that I would like to hang, and a messy garage that I would like to clean. Maybe I will get around to all those things one day.

Anyone else feel like they don't have time for home projects?

Even without the landscaping, decorations and a clean garage, life goes on. With 2 kids at home, some things just don't get done as quickly as I would like them too, but I wouldn't trade the time at home with my girls for anything.

So, for today, I will leave you with a pic of the house, taken the day before we moved in. Stay tuned tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday!!

  1. That's cool that you have a house-iversary! I don't think you should feel bad about your landscaping, though. Most of your neighbors don't seem to have done so much about theirs either, so your yard doesn't stick out or anything! I've been living in our condo for 2 years and there's still decorating stuff that I haven't done. Remember the frames that were hung but empty for a long time?!
