Happy Thanksgiving & TE Blowout and pictures of our home finally!

thanksgiving turkeys

Today I am thankful for family & my beautiful new home.  Here are a few quick 6x6 scrapbook pages I made this morning with some pictures from when my niece & nephew visited a few weeks ago.  We had craft night one night, it was so fun – I had the kids make hand turkeys and you can tell they were proud of their work (especially Joey, who loved using his glue – he’s even still holding it in his picture!)  I used the TE set Gobble, Gobble in the Stamp a Sweet Impression line of stamps.

So here are some long awaited pictures of the inside of our home which we moved into Sept 25.  As any homeowner knows, it’s always a work in progress and since I took these pictures, things have even changed since!  I will update once I decorate for Christmas too, which will be soon!


Kitchen stove (convection, LOVE it!) new coffeemaker, over range microwave.


Right of the sink (ADORE my open shelves) – crystal, stemware, blendtec, kitchenaid mixer and new toaster.



Left of the sink – tea stuff, everyday glasses from IKEA, my favorite new pressure cooker and vegetables



Our fabulous new stainless steel side by side fridge with ice/water dispenser!  I got those cute ceramic pumpkins at GardenRidge – my only decoration on the island. IMG_1580

Our dining table we found on Craigslist – mission style which we love.  It’s in great condition 8 chairs.




Our comfy couch we got from DMIL, which she’s had since John was a baby.  It is a sleeper sofa.  Shelby’s hanging out spot complete with her food/water bowl so she doesn’t have to wear her shoes!IMG_1584

Open shelves, to the left of fireplace we have DVD’s and on the right we have books.  A few decorative items on the hearth.  Since taking the picture, I brought in some firewood for the other side.



IMG_1586Hall bath – pretty much minimally decorated in all bathroom spaces!


Master bedroom – simple! We have been w/out a headboard for years and recently got a king bedroom set but we still need to get a mattress set.  Can’t wait to show you that soon!  


Here is my favorite picture – my little Elsie sitting on the bed!  I love these pillows I got at Gardenridge! 

I hope you like the pictures!  I’d love to know what you think!  Holiday pictures soon!!  Can’t wait!

Hope you have a Blessed Thanksgiving & thank you for your friendship and visiting my blog!!
