Can Dixon get here already?? I am officially over the nesting period and I have every right to be since we moved into our house! Oh Yea!! (in my Trump voice) HUUUUUUUGGGGEEE News.. David and I became homeowners in October!! We are overly excited to finally have a place to call home. With a baby due in November, I had certain goals set that I wanted accomplished in our new home, and we have completed them all thankfully. So here is a tiny look into our very first home!
My first priority was the baby nursery. I knew if for any reason Dixon came early that we would have to have his room ready. Next on my list was our bedroom. I haven’t started to truly decorate but I knew how I wanted our bed. Luckily my husband has become quite the carpenter and built our bed, the guest bed, and our dining table. We were able to save so much money with his mad skills, and he will be adding pieces later. The most important ones came first like my dream bed… My Mom will be staying with us once our baby boy arrives so having a bed for her was a necessity. It is always best to make sure your visitors or help for that matter are comfy!
And last but definitely not least is our dining table. I have dreamed of a 8 top wooden table filled with china and guest since I picked out my wedding registry. These tables can get very pricey. My husband came to the rescue and built it for me which makes it that much more special. We have two gray upholstered, high back chairs at the ends and two wooden benches on each side. All that is missing are guests, but they will arrive very soon. I added a little fall decor to our mantle, and I think we are set until I find other pieces. The crystal candelabrum’s have been passed down for generations in my family. I adore heirlooms, and I have a constant thought of my grandmother in our home. One other thing is our beautiful, all white kitchen. What made me most excited was being able to use our wedding gifts for the first time. We have had them boxed away for a year and a half. It was like Christmas morning with each and every box. Also, don’t mind the waterfowl flying around. Marriage is all about compromise, right?!With the baby room completed, a place for me and David and my Mom to sleep, and a place to eat, all that’s left to do is put up some Chirstmas decor in December. Hopefully, the next thing to happen will be Baby Dixon arriving! I will be 40 Weeks pregnant in TWO DAYS! My anxiety level is at an all time high!
