Moving again

I know it seems like I just got here to Virginia, Right?

Well the truth is that my husband has been staying 2 hours away during the week to work because his job is down in North Carolina.

So we found a lovely home to rent that will be ours for the next year, or more.
Here is a picture of the front of the house. 

We are hoping to be moved in a week so that next week my husband will be able to come home during the week again. It will take a lot of work on my part to box up our lives here during this week so that come this weekend we can get the truck and load everything up.

I may not be around to blog for just a short bit but hopefully soon afterwards I will be able to settle in and get back to sharing my world.

The new house does not have a separate dinning room, only an eat in kitchen so I am going to be building a breakfast nook. I have already found the perfect round table and I will have to build a the benches along two walls.

I am going for a look that resembles this one:

Of course I will use entirely different fabric and make it more colorful. But the table looks a lot like this and the benches will be white. I am going to install piano hinges in the lids of the benches so that they can be used for extra storage in the kitchen. I will also have to find a few extra chairs to use for the other side of the table but I think this situation will work out perfectly for the space we have.

I will update my blog followers as soon as I can.


  1. Ooooo, love the house!! Your breakfast nook plans sound perfect.

  2. How exciting!! The house looks lovely in the photo and I love the plans you have for the kitchen. I can't wait to see what you do!!

    Funny thing, you'll be spending more time with your husband and I'll be spending less with mine. I'll be sharing on my blog soon. We have exciting things happening around here, too!

    Good luck with packing and the move. I hope everything goes smoothly.

  3. Pentalia, Thank you! I am excited about the plans. I will have to build it quickly so that we will have a place to eat. :)

    Shady, I am sorry to hear that you will be spending less time with your hubby. We have been going on 7 weeks of time apart during the week and its just not fun at all. I hope that it doesn't last to long for you.

  4. Your new house looks so cute! And I'm sure it will be so nice to see your husband more. We don't have a separate dining room either and I like it that way. It's much either to set the table and clean up.

    Hopefully your move is going great!
