Welcome to our home!

OK, since we just moved into our house this is going to be a home tour in general, plus some of our Christmas bare with might get LONG! Also, there is still A LOT of work to be done on some rooms, so please don't judge. I will write a caption on the pictures that need them describing what still needs to be done...Here we go..Welcome!

This is our back door, but it is the door that everyone uses because we park in the back of our house. My friend Patty and I made those wreaths :)....come on in..

When you walk in this is what you see. I might as well say now that I didn't clean or anything for these pictures..this is our life! So this is our laundry room, it is the one room that is the farthest from being finished..but it has came a LONG way from when we moved in 2 months ago. The ceiling still needs to be finished, we still haven't put up the trim and we haven't really organized all Pete's tools. We do not have a garage or any outdoor space so this has to hold everything...

Here is the view from the living room. All the boxes over there, yeah..that is things Pete bought online on black Friday from Lowe's that I have no idea what to do with! I apologize..

Ok, so here is the junk table! Every tool and screw, nails, etc are on this table. We have tried to make it look neat, but there is no hope. In all those boxes there is a day we will put it together. ha.Plus our coat rack, which is a ladder..I haven't found the rack that I really want so this is working in the mean time.

This is where we hang our keys, plus I extended the ribbon from the wreath and put it down the door for all our Christmas cards we are getting in the mail! Plus our calendar and current events we have going on!

Dryer sheets, and laundry detergent!

Our FAVORITE wedding gift! It is a cabinet door that is decorated with our last name

Small bathroom!

Our stairs leading upstairs to the bedrooms, it says Love Lives Here.

Since we have 3 rooms up here and it is an old house so the closet are small, we made one into our closet and I couldn't be happier! Only thing this room is lacking is a new ottoman, that is just an old bench Pete had in college.

Our master! I love it! I wanted to make it like a hotel suite. Once I get all the pictures up one the walls it will look complete, right now it still looks unfinished to me..excuse the cord, it is my electric was on heating my bed so I didn't wanna move it! Ha.

Bookshelf in our room, where we plug in our phones at night..

Spare bedroom. We didn't want a TV in our bedroom, but we wanted one upstairs in case we ever want to watch TV up there it is. I am still searching for the perfect chair next to the guitars..the room is so big so it needs something else..

Office. Downstairs by the bathroom..We have a desk, plus a desk for our computer. Also, the closet is my pantry.

I am working on a few more things for this room. I couldn't decide the theme I was going to go in here, but I finally decided that it was going to be MIZZOU. Pete is a HUGE HUGE fan, plus he played football all throughout high school, and almost played in college but changed his mind. I have a MU bulletin board I am working on and a few other things and it will be finished..the wreath is from my sister's business .

Dining Room! I haven't put anything on the walls in here either..I will get it done someday. I wasn't sure if I would like our table after we picked it out, but it is growing on me :)


Kitchen! Excuse the pot of chili we were making and the extra large MU magnet that Pete just can't get rid of yet!..someday...

Living Room. This couch was given to us, and we could not be more happy with it! It is so large, but so is the room so in this house, it works. Plus it was FREE.

We also cannot decide on an entertainment center, so for now it is a bookshelf on it's side. Owell. It works..

Hope you enjoyed viewing my home! I know it was more than Christmas decorations, but since we just moved it I needed to do that whole home anyways so why not now! Sorry this was so long!
Have a good day!
