New House, New Home 

Well you guys, we did it! We are officially moved into our new home. It has been so fun putting everything away into its new spot. While I’ve been putting things away I have been asking myself, “do I need this”, “do I love this”. If the answer is no then I have been donating the item. My hubby took several car loads of stuff to Goodwill. Before we moved we took a bunch of stuff that was unreedeemable or broken and just took it to the dump. It feels so good to not have a ton of random stuff everywhere. Especially in the garage. Our garage in the last house was just ridiculous, it was seriously full of random junk. I hated thinking about going through everything, it was just so daunting. So now that it’s done I am realizing what a weight has been lifted off of me, I didn’t realize it was weighing me down so much. 

Decluttering has really made the move in process a lot more enjoyable. I am almost completely to the fun part of decorating, and the spaces I have decorated have just come together so nicely because every item I am using I really love. (It is silly the amount of decor items I donated, yikes) 

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone that has been praying for my family through this time of transition. My family and I really appreciate it! God is so good, and has made this transition as smoothly as possible. We feel extremely thankful to own this house, and call it our home. 

Everyday this week I have been showing an update on our home on my Instagram stories. This includes some new happy mail I’ve received. Decorating spaces. Organization. Etc. Come say hi over there, I would love to chat!! I will be doing individual blogs for each space in our home so I can give you guys references, and share what I was thinking while I was decorating the spaces. 

This week in our new house we found a huge surprise . . . 

I was truly shocked by the beauty of these Robyn’s eggs, and completely surprised by the number of eggs here. I thought maybe one or two, but FOUR, I was impressed. I will keep you updated on these little guys on my Instagram stories @homechronicles. 

Hope you all have a great day,

Exciting News, and Happy Easter

I couldn’t believe I was saying that we were selling our house- now I can’t believe that I am able to say it sold in one day!! The people that bought it had made the offer on the home before they had even seen it in person. I mean I wanted it to sell quickly, but man 1 day feels really quick. I am super thankful! Now we are in full house hunting mode. The market is just so crazy here that houses are literally flying off of the market. We have already lost two houses that we put an offer on because other people bid more.

Thankfully, I am not too worried about which house we will find to make our new home. I am enjoying this house hunting process though because it is so fun looking at different styles of homes and seeing how people style them.

For now I am just going to enjoy this home while we are still in it, and get this home spring ready. We just celebrated Easter at church and then here, and I was so glad I had the opportunity to host my family and some close friends one more time in this home!

I had no idea what I was going to serve for food so I hopped on over to good ole' Pinterest, it is my go to when I need a meal plan. And, of course it didn't fail me.

I am already feeling behind on my packing because I had a little road bump this week. Our golden retriever, Autumn, snuck out of our fence and someone called the Humane society which I was thankful for because I at least knew she was safe. She had to stay the night, and I picked her up the next morning. It was not a fun experience, it was frightening not knowing where my pup was. I am so thankful she is safe and sound at home now! For the Humane Society I had to show them a picture of Autumn so I dug up this one from Booker, TX. I really loved that kitchen, and miss my bowling lane counter tops, and Kohler farmsink.

Here is a little photo to reminisce about that kitchen. For more on this kitchen I have a blog post all about the renovation, and the before and afters that I still like to go and look at.

I finally got around to adding some spring touches to our home. Aka I was a decorating crazy lady at 1 am Saturday night before Easter. Nothing like waiting til the last minute! 
Hosting Easter was a nice motivation to get goin'! I hope you all had a very Happy Easter!!
