"i bet you hardly even remember home"

Last night at work the GM (of the tv station filming the football game we were at) came over to me, inquired about our job and concluded "this is a pretty cool job you have."
He and I chatted for a while when he asked "so you can't have a dog or a home life can you?"
Funny enough, I told him that I have a dog, a husband and a home. He was puzzled and I had a good laugh. My life puzzles a lot of people, so his questions and reaction were standard and crack me up every time!
Then he said "I bet you hardly even remember home."
And you know what? He's right!

I originally posted the below post back in late August, just after we had moved into our house. I've been really missing home a lot lately and realized last night that I don't entirely remember what home looks like, as we only lived there for 1 week. With that being said, I've decided to repost this to jog my memory... and because I love our home!


We moved in on a Monday and 8 days later, on the following Tuesday, we had to leave town for work. We needed to accomplish the majority of our unpacking, furniture placement and decorating in that short week. And we did. Mission accomplished!

Family Room & Kitchen

We worked really hard and had a blast putting our house together. A freaking blast! So much is from our travels or pieces we've collected along the way. And much of it is brand spankin' new too! We absolutely love what we've done so far, but it's not even close to finished.


Next steps:
kitchen table
furnish our bonus room upstairs
install plantation shutters & roman shades
put a fence up for Cali
A kitchen table, window treatments and a fence will our next purchases... small fry needs to be able to run free!


We're so close, but are going to take a break for a few months to dive back into our careers.
Gotta make money to spend money, yo!
