Well, we finally made it into our new home! I keep telling Kev that I feel like we're playing house, it's been surreal. Needless to say we are extremely grateful. The very first night.. as we ate our bowls of cereal (a nightly ritual for us) I was giddy just thinking about the next chapter of our life here. Along with excitement came the reality of a mortgage, utilities, and countless other adult-y things.. but let's not dwell on the negative :) In addition to a new home, Kevin and I both started new jobs.. he will be at a software company called Mozenda and I will be doing some CNA work, so we're kicking off the new year with a fresh start. Last night I had a hard time sleeping, so I jotted down a few personal goals.. I'm excited for what 2014 has to offer and hope to improve myself some. Here are a few pictures of the place. Unfortunately they can't paint the exterior until it warms up, so part 2 will be coming atcha once it's completely finished. Cheers to a new year!

PS. If anyone is looking to build, I would highly recommend RC Dent. Working with them was a breeze! Not to mention that most of their standard features would be upgrades elsewhere. They also finished on time AND on budget, which is unheard of. Double thumbs up from us (insert thumb emoticon here).

  3. OH MY FREAKING HELL i love your house. SERIOUSLY! I actually know the Dent family - my husband is good friends with one of the sons and I was so glad to see that at the end of the post! Devin and I are starting to dip our toes into the building-a-house part of adulthood and now I really want to use them! If you don't mind me asking a zillion questions... did you design the house yourselves, or did they have floorplans already? (I knew the Dents did this, but I know zero details about their business). Will they build anywhere? Did you have to find a lot yourselves? Was the hoop jumping super hard? I hear buying/building is just THE WORST. But seriously. Congratulations. This is the freaking cutest house I've ever seen. I cant wait to see more photos!!! You are an incredible photographer, by the way.
