New House Ramblings

I decided to actually write and let you know what I’ve been up to lately. I’ve been busy trying to unpack still and get stuff organized and put in it’s place. I’ve hardly been able to touch the playroom, which is still piled high in boxes. We’ve purchased a piece of furniture for the entry way. I think it looks really nice. We had sod installed this past weekend and it looks so much better!
We also put in a storage building in the back. We bought new mattresses for his twin bed in one of the mattress stores in Knoxville, Tennessee. We got rid of the toddler bed the day we moved and he’s transitioned quite easily, click here for stats on how sleep affects young ones and why we need to makes sure they get enough. So he got TV Boy’s bed, TV Boy got the double bed. We had to get TV Boy new bedding to match his “Sports theme.” Now I’ve got to figure out the pros and cons of a stucco home re-haul and what color to paint his room and then do it. I’m also hoping to paint the main bathroom. I like the colors that’s it’s painted now, but it’s not that great of a paint job. So I looked for inspiration online and stumbled on Homestyle Painting Winnipeg photo galleries and after careful considerations I’ve decided to do a “Surfing Theme.” I think it will be super cute when I’m done. Our to do list and to buy list is still a mile long, but we’re getting there slowly but surely. Here’s everything I could think of…
