Settling In

Well we made it down to the Lone Star State!
Aaaah...feels good to be back!

The drive down was pretty uneventful.
And I've been busy unpacking and beginning
the process of settling in.

I've mainly focused on getting the "core" of the house
put together, and can say now, 
one week later,
it's ALMOST done!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I put the 
sampler wall up the other night!

I need to get some better photos, but it came together
pretty well I think!  I was so glad when the wall was done.
Really gave me a "this is home" feeling!

I also got the mantle ready for summer.

Can you tell we get some natural sunlight in the main living area?
I'm going to have to figure out how to use that to my advantage
while taking photos!

I've been trying to keep the kitchen table
cleared off.

From the kitchen table, we can see this out the window.

I haven't really taken advantage of that yet, other than plunging my feet in
while taking breaks from the unpacking!

There are still a couple stray boxes in the kitchen.

 I have taken a LOT of boxes of STUFF to G'Willy's.
Needless to say, after this move and having to deal with all of our STUFF,
I will not be in any hurry to go thrifting for a long time!
On the other hand, if you live in the DFW area, there may be an influx
of funky decor items hitting your local G'Willy shelves soon!

Hoping to get back to the blog regularly soon!
Also hoping to lounge by the pool soon!

But for now,
Sam is certainly enjoying the pool!

 I hope you've had a pleasant week and
a wonderfully festive 4th of July!
And THANK YOU so much for the sampler love comments from the past week!

Until next time...
