So...I'm a little behind schedule in posting what has been happening in AR. I was going to try and summarize the week in one post, but it's just not possible! Look forward to many more posts in the next few days!
I arrived around 9pm with my little sister. Russell was still in Memphis waiting on phase 2 of moving trucks. I was really thankful Leslie came to stay with me! Russell and I were so fortunate to have bought a house from a very sweet family. Walking into the empty house, I felt like the house missed it's family as much as the family missed it's house. I know this house holds memories of lots of happy noise! I immediately promised it that we would fill it with lots of love, a new family and many visitors.
You'll notice lots of light in these pics because I actually took these on the morning of Day 2 before the truck arrived!
I am now realizing I haven't actually taken a picture of the outside of the house! Use your imagination- white siding, shaker shingles, black shutters and black front door. Lots of trees :)
Here's the tour...
|from the front door, take a right into the dining room|
|from the dining room, you walk through into the kitchen (that's Nermal in the corner. He's the previous owners' cat who stayed with me for a week)|
|from the kitchen take a right and another right, it leads you to the laundry room and storage closet|
|if you take a right then a left, then its guest room. Here's the closet|
|...guest room bathroom|
|guest room- I LOVE the windows in here!|
If you would've taken a left from the kitchen, you would've entered the living room...
|door to kitchen|
|fireplace, bookshelves, and door to the sun porch|
|paneling and fireplace|
|french doors to screened porch|
|view of the yard|
|view of the house from the porch and you can also see the deck|
|continuing through the living room and back to the front door you find the staircase|
|and under the staircase is this little powder room|
|at the top of the stairs to the left is the multipurpose room|
|multipurpose room closet|
|just past the multipurpose room is this "kid" bathroom|
|hallway to the bedrooms|
|"kid" bedroom 1|
|"kid" bedroom 1 alternate view|
|next door is "kid" bedroom 2|
|at the end of the hallway is the master bedroom|
|through the door you can see in the master bedroom is the master bathroom|
|and inside the bathroom is the master closet|

We truly love our new house! Get ready to view the chaos in the next few days!
