House Tour

Our new home

We are finally settled into our new home. It took me a while to get internet set up here, but I finally did get it set up. After two weeks of waiting on and working with Verizon, I called Cox and had service at 10am the very next day! Now that is service. I'm relieved to get back to my blog! There are so many things I want to write about.
Enjoying the sunshine

This is the first house we've rented; we've always had apartments until now. And there was that time we lived in one bedroom at my parent's house. That was a hard year. We are really enjoying our yard and ALL THIS SPACE! The house is only 200sq feet larger than our apartment, but between the yards and the garage which we converted into a workroom for Husband and a playroom for the boys, we have a ton of space.

Yes. His underpants are on backwards. He dresses himself you know!
Jack and Andy helped us paint the garage, which was pretty grungy. We found a remnant of carpet at Lowes and the result is a nice play area for the kids. I can keep the kitchen door open most of the time to supervise. One the other side of the large bookcase is Husband's work area / storage.

They really like having a space of their own, and I quite enjoy not having all the toys in the living room. One of the reasons we chose this house, which is smaller than I wanted,  is the location. It is a short (VERY short) drive from Husband's new base, which boasts this:

A private beach. With free parking. And a real bathhouse. And lifeguards.

If you've ever been to Virginia Beach, you know that it is jammed with people ALL THE TIME.

I think we are going to like it here.


  1. aw, Virginia Beach :) don't forget your sunscreen!

    1. Thanks! Been thinking about you lots this summer.

  2. Congrats on your new home! I know you are loving having a house and a yard! Great idea with the garage too, I love the idea of a playroom!
    I cannot imagine living so close to the beach, I hope you all become regular beach bums. My kids don't even know what the ocean is....must correct that soon.
    Hope you are settled in and getting used to your new town.
    Take care!

    1. Thanks, we are getting settled, slowly, as we are taking a bit of time to be beach bums!

  3. Your house is so cute and thanks for blogging again. I checked it a few times while you were moving.

    1. Thanks Carrie, I'm so happy that you are following me! I'm going to try to get back to blogging regularly in August. This summer has been nuts. Bear with me just a little longer please!


Make my day! Please, leave a comment!
