New home update!

Ian and I have been busy little bees that's for sure! We dove right in and started painting rooms in the house (remind me to never paint another kitchen again!) and our movers thankfully didn't take long to arrive so we could begin the unpacking process quickly.

Then, miracle of all miracles, I got a job!! My wonderful friend Ashley put in a good word for me at her place of employment and I was interviewed my first Monday here and then hired on the spot! Thank you, Jesus! I am an office administrator/assistant for a property management company. We rent out homes of course, but also provide furnished apartments for more temporary needs. It is always busy, always changing and keeps me on my toes and I. love. it. Plus the owners are really laid back, military friendly and hilarious. Did I mention that I get to work with one of my best friends? A huge bonus!

So needless to say, getting the house all settled has been a slower process but I don't mind. So without further ado, here are some pictures of what we have done (so far).

The fireplace is my favorite part of the house!

  4. WOOOOHOOOO!!! I am so happy for you both. The house looks wonderful. You're creative personal touch is making it a lovely home. So proud of you friend.

  5. It's looking great! And it looks like you guys have a LOT of space! (eh hemmm.. room for more? say... little ones??) but you'll need a bigger bed eventually for them to climb in it with you! =)
    Looks lovely you two! Congrats! And congrats on the job too =)

  6. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to

  7. Hey just stumbled upon your blog from Google after I typed in, "Blogger: Kelli's Khronicles" or
    perhaps something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyways, I'm
    glad I found it simply because your subject material is exactly
    what I'm looking for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if I collect some material from
    here and I will of course credit you as the source. Thank you very much.

  8. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it
    can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
