…our new home!
{sorry it’s a crummy pic, but i took it with my phone as we were driving by before we officially crossed our T’s}
i am so happy blake & i found a place to live. it’s about 20 minutes away from our parents & 11 minutes away from the hospital blake will be interning at.
it’s a cute & quaint starter(rental)home with an amazing back yard. & there’s plenty of work to be done!
oh, the house is nicely kept & recently remodeled, but umm… there’s only one little problem.
we don’t have any furniture.
emmy does. but we don’t.
see, the first house we moved into when blake started med school was furnished. convenient for us since we were straight outta college & would only be living there for two years.
but now?
now, we’d kinda like a comfy place to lay our pretty little heads.
& that’s where the stress fun comes in.
i’ve been hanging out at all the local thrifts & consignment shops lately with my girl. she’s a terrific little shopper & we’ve been having lotsa fun perusing for great finds.
i’ll be updating y’all on our nesting journey.
hopefully i’ll make it to home depot to pick out paint colors
ooooh i can’t wait!!
do you have any favorite thrifty finds? do you love {or not so love} decorating your home? what’s your style? do you have any favorite go-to decorating sites? do share!

    Congrats on the new home! Have fun decorating and just pick up what you love without over thinking it…I can never do this, but hopefully you can 🙂

    Congrats!! We got lots of our furniture at Big Lots. (I'm not sure if they have those around you…?) They buy out stores that are closing so the furniture is "real" brands, but super cheap. Good luck!! Have fun! 🙂

    Congratulations on your new home! What an EXCITING process! We've been living in our house for just over a year now and it was SO MUCH FUN decorating. I, however, have the shortest attention span when it comes to decorating and i'm already itching to redo some of the rooms we JUST did less than a year ago! such is life, right? I am IN LOVE with HomeGoods and Hobby Lobby for unique and inexpensive accent pieces! Vases, picture frames, paintings, end tables, you name it! It's my trusty go-to for all things decorative! Good luck and have fun!

    Congrats! My advice is to take your time finding pieces that you love. It's hard advice to follow… I did better with it before I got married to someone who can't imagine living with an XY or Z for any amount of time.

  • Corinne

    Congratulations! Looks like a great home! I can't wait to see the inside when it's all done 😉

    I love garage sales, thrift stores…all of it. A little can of paint can go a LONG way!

  • Brittany

    Too cute!!!!! I have lots of furniture I've found at thrift and antique stores but honestly my best finds have been at garage sales and from craigslist. Don't forget to check those places too!! Can't wait for pics! 🙂

  • Ams

    So exciting!!!
    Can't wait to see what you do with the place… so glad you're still going to be close to your family and close to where Blake is working 🙂 YAY!
