Design, my house

the one with Florida living room reveal

I try to keep this blog about things that are happening in my real life or in general for the world. . . like spring jackets because it’s spring, maternity dresses because I’m expecting, etc, etc. So for today’s post I had originally listed nursery ideas. But then I realized that would be 2 weeks in a row with 2 posts all about the baby. Welp, I don’t plan on turning this into a momma blog so I had to rethink some things. That’s when I realized . . . I’ve never shown you my Florida house! So today we’re starting with the living room!

a little back story . . . When we moved down here a year little over a year ago, we wanted a place to rent that was reasonably priced, in a safe and quiet neighborhood, and that would fit our current furniture (we didn’t have time to sell and restart which might have been easier). This place was perfect for all of those conditions. The plan was to live here a year while we got to know the area, made friends, found a church, and settled in with Iron Man’s new job. Well, we ‘ve done all those things and we love our quiet beach town, but with his job we’ve found that a move to another city is possible in about a year. We also discovered about 3 months ago we need to save some money for a little person growing in my belly. So we’re staying here for another year.  It’ll be a tight squeeze once the little one is here (if I just had about 2 feet on the side for storage), but he’ll be sleeping in our room for a few months and the financial benefits of staying here are MAJOR. Plus we like our little house – the room I’m showing you today is what sold us on it. And the fact that it has a nice greige paint color throughout so I didn’t need to paint! Let’s get to the fun part the pictures . . . .
