Hello, my name is jen. It's nice to meet you!

It's been so long since I've posted, I feel like I should introduce myself!

We're moved! Actually, we've been sleeping in this house for two weeks. There are still boxes in the garage and a few inside, but for the most part we are settled. I am ready to hang pictures in most rooms. Hopefully we will have time to tackle that this weekend. I just found my camera, so here are a few pics of some things I am loving about this house. . .

I love having the bar for my three messy kids. I am also loving the look of the black appliances and our new fridge! We chose to have the concrete stained in all of the hard floor areas. I think it is so pretty!

It is soooo nice having our armoire back in the master bedroom where it belongs! It just completes the room! In our old master, there was plenty of space for it, we just couldn't get it through the odd angles of the hallway leading to the master. "It's so nice to have you back where you belong..."


The girls have an ENORMOUS room! It is wonderful to have a bigger room to fit these two as they get bigger. The only downside is that we have their beds right beside each other and they think every night is a slumber party. It is just too easy for them to talk and play before they fall asleep. We're working on it though!


The last things I love are all about spreadin' out and gettin' down to the playtime. We gave up a guest room and gained a playroom with the move. I love that the kids rooms and our living room are less cluttered with all the toys. And that there is another common area for them to play instead of having our living room overrun by toys. We are also greatly enjoying the quiet double cul-de-sac and sidewalks just out the front door. It's been raining here lots, but every chance we get, we head outdoors. The girls' absolutely love having all the space to ride their "bikes", and Bubba finally has a good place to learn to ride a two wheeler. I predict that he will accomplish that soon (if we get a break from the rain). It has also been fun to meet our new neighbors along the way. We miss our old neighbors, but are glad to live near such friendly people.

It looks great! After we had our back porch stained I loved it. We have talked about having it done in our bathrooms and kitchen. Let me know how you like it. ENJOY your new space! ;)

How nice to have a place you can stretch out in! I too love the floors! That is our plan for the next house we have. Did Betenbough do it or do you have the number of someone? I am glad you are moved and settled. Sure miss seeing your face around.

Yay!! I can't wait to see it! Do you still have an office room? Or where do you keep the computer now?
I was really looking forward to seeing you today.. too bad the weather had to mess things up again.
I'm pretty sure I won't be in Lubbock again until Travis' wedding. I'm booked every weekend until that one!
Love ya!
