I owe so many updates! I have no excuses except that we’ve been really busy. 2 weeks ago we volunteered with the Interfaith Hospitality Network and stayed over 2 nights plus brought dinner another day for 3 homeless families in the rotation. 2 weekends ago we went to Ohio for Chris’s family reunion, and last weekend we went to Wilmington to visit Rane. We slacked a bit on the house and blog updates as a result.


So many new things though! Yesterday we had this bad boy and his dryer-comrade delivered. Unfortunately they need to stack and I hadn’t bought a stacking kit. The weird thing about this was the overwhelming feeling of deja-vu this gave me.  For now the washer is scooted out from the walls but you can kind of see how much space there will be. They’ll come back next Saturday to stack them (I think the salesperson should have sold me this, I was buying stack-able units after all) and then we’ll be able to install the sink.

Here are Chris and I painting in Mary Kyle’s unit. We’re doing accent walls so this room will stay the light blue color and just this wall will be pink. It’s a big wall but I think it will look more accent-like once she hangs curtains.


Paint 🙂 This first picture is without gutters and the second two are with. We LOVE having gutters. Everything was all kinds of crazy without them. Any time I’m outside I want to just look at the house and sigh. Although you can tell that the yard is completely out-of-control now, but that’s on our short list now. As soon as the porta-potty leaves we’ll be out of excuses.


With some free time in the evenings we’ve even been putting things on the walls! Just in the living room, but we’ve hung some mantle art in the form of 3D flowers (once we paint this room gray this will not be quite as feminine), we’ve started my gallery wall, and we’ve hung one hanger for a big mirror across from the gallery wall. Things are still a mess but they’re looking up!
