Moving Day House Tour

It’s moving day today!!!

I’m still a little absent in the bloggy world, since this whole house thing is taking up all of my time (thank goodness I’m on summer), but I wanted to do a quick post to give you a little (unfurnished) house tour. I took these pictures last week during our inspection, so I thought it was a great time to share.

I can tell you now it’s going to take a while to furnish this baby, especially since it is a 5 bedroom home. Quite the upgrade from a 2-bedroom apartment, I must say.

But before we get to the house tour, here are some fun photos of Greg and I.

Our “Last Supper” as non-homeowners. Chuy’s guacamole soft tacos are my kryptonite, btw.
Signing our papers at closing yesterday! A little blurry, and I look a little tired/stressed. Oh well. I just assumed a crap ton of debt. Can you blame me?
Okay, now onto house tour! Enjoy!
Front elevation
Entry way
Dining Room
Downstairs half bath (and me… and camera… and fetus)
Kitchen (Matching fridge is arriving today! Thanks, Mom!)
Breakfast nook
Living room with remote control fireplace
Master bedroom
Master bath…sorry, I couldn’t get everything at one angle. Dual sinks, soaker tub, separate shower.
OMG only one part of the master closet. It’s amaaaaaazing.
Ledge in 2-story foyer
One of four upstairs bedrooms (no need to see them all, they look similar). One will be the nursery, one will be an office, and the other two will be guest rooms.
One of two full upstairs baths (and me…and fetus) – the other one looks identical
Back elevation and un-sodded backyard. I think it’s very fitting for a beach themed party. We’re going to lay concrete across the back portion of the house to extend the porch. Obviously we also need help landscaping this.

Thank you all for your incredibly sweet comments and tweets over the last couple weeks. I haven’t had much time to respond to each and every one, but know that I do appreciate your kind words! With my baby announcement, my birthday, and this new house, I feel incredibly blessed to have so many lovely friends, family members, and blog pals be so supportive and encouraging.

    It’s soooo beautiful and amazing! I can’t wait to see it progress with time!!! It’s like the most amazing blank canvas ever!!

    Ummm and random but that pattern they must have vacuumed (I’m assuming?) into the dining room carpet is classy! haha

    i lol’d at the part where you said “i just assumed a bunch of debt” because that’s exactly what buying a house means to me.

    anyway, the place is AMAZING!!! that kitchen?? omg i DIE…looks like you get awesome natural light so I hope there will be lots of blog recipes in your future.

    also, what are you gonna do with that random ledge on the second story? I say turn it into a window dressing, like at Barney’s or something, where you have mannequins and change them regularly with the season. It’s a commitment, but so are most things that are awesome.

    congrats! 🙂

    It’s fabulous, Meg. I expect some consulting calls when you start landscaping. Oh the fabulous tropicals you can grow in Houston. You should just cover everything in confederate jasmine, plumbago, and hibiscus.
