New Home in Juanita feels like it took me forever to get the house somewhat organized, and I still have a lot to do. But I know you've all been dying for pictures of the new place (right?!?), so here we go. 

Here we are after the move, just picking up a few last things and locking the door. It was a little sad to say goodbye to our first home in Washington. But excited for the new adventures ahead.

Saying goodbye
I told Andy that when we came back for the food that we needed to remember to bring a bag to put it in....well, we both forgot the bag. So we just threw it all into the trunk. Made for a funny picture. 
Fridge the trunk because we forgot bags. Oops!
Okay, so here is the tour of the new place:
Take a left...head to kitchen, dining room, and living room
Take a right...head to bedrooms and bathroom
Full size washer and dryer = HEAVENLY!
Second bedroom. Still needs to be organized and turned into my craft room.
Master bedroom. I love the window benches in both rooms!

Closets and shower
Bathroom again
Kitchen. Beautiful granite counter tops and nice appliances. None of that apartment-quality crap.
Dining Room. So big and bright.
And living room. 
So that's the new place. I have been keeping a list of the little things that I want to make/buy so that I can decorate. But that will all come with time, seeing as how we don't want to spend a fortune all in one month. I am trying to be thrifty though to keep it fairly inexpensive. We really like it so far, the area is pretty quiet (except for the ever present, I could kill every crow I see...). It definitely sucks to move on a Tuesday and have to work the rest of the week. We were so tired and it's taken us a little while to recover from the move. Andy had a super busy and stressful week at work, so our weekends have consisted of unpacking and just resting. I'm sad that we haven't taken advantage of the nice weather to enjoy the beach and the rest of the area we moved to; we could walk 10 minutes and be at the beach, but we will get there soon enough, maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow will be our first Sunday in the new ward. I'm looking forward to it, but you all know how it is...just kind of nervous-making having to get used to a new ward. I'll let you know how it goes. :)


  1. I love the place Kell! It looks so nice and spacious! If you guys stay there for a little while, I will be able to see it in person. I'm determined!

  2. So cute kell! I am excited to see it all decorated. Keep the pictures coming. I also met another girl from Belleve (I don't know how to spell that) and I told her that I had a friend that lived there but she just moved. Everyone knows where Belleve is, but she had no idea where your new city was. You might have to move back!

  3. The place looks great, party at your place!
