(Remember when I "unveiled" our old house back in April 2010?)
As promised, I've fully documented the new house in its current state. Allow me to take you on a tour...
Ok so I stole this post from the real estate listing… I was not in the mood to walk all the way out to the street to snap a new one when it looks essentially the same. And yes, we are aware that the bushes/trees on the left need some major trimming!
Fun fact: we're at the end of a cul-de-sac!
And here's the front porch, complete with owl door mat and handmade wreath from my crafty SIL
Come on in!
The front room, aka: the most confusing room in the house to me. Currently it serves as the twins' playroom and our computer room. Our sectional wouldn't fit in the TV room, so it has taken up residence in this room as well.
If you turn right just pass the front room, you'll get to the master bedroom.
A view of our bathroom, and as a bonus, a sneak peek of the miniature door on the left, which we've affectionately nicknamed "the hobbit hole"
One view of the master closet, complete with an excessive number of shoes
Back to the main area of the house: the dining room. Note: that rug is not as black as it appears!
Entrance to the kitchen from the dining room- the counter goes on forever (and the party never ends)
The rest of the kitchen; another fun fact: that oven was installed a year ago when the most recent owners bought the house and they NEVER used it. And perhaps more importantly, it's blue inside!
The butler/dry bar/place where our keys and bags reside when we're at home
Half bathroom- 50% bathroom, 100% awesome
I should never be a real estate photographer because I am terrible at lighting… nonetheless, here's our breakfast room with a view of the TV room and stairs in the background.
And here's the breakfast room with the backyard in the background
The TV room
The TV room again, this time showcasing our new love seat (left) and old one (right)
I figured a picture of the stairs would be boring, so I threw this action shot in instead. Our old house was only one story so these stairs have opened up a whole new world to them! That would be why one of our first purchases was additional baby gates.
Once you get upstairs, the first guest room is on your right.
If you go down the hall, the second guest room is on your right...
And the bathroom is on your left!
For those of you with mad "Where's Waldo?" skills, yes, there is a picture above the towel rack in this picture that wasn't taken in the picture above. I actually took these on separate days, so sue me.
I didn't really have anything to put in the built-in next to the sink, so I decided to fill it with frames (and a candle)… I also think the ducky night light adds a nice touch, don't you?
And then at the end of the hall is the twins' room!
Probably looks familiar if you remember seeing their nursery reveal- the main difference is that this room is much bigger!
Better view of the changing table with one cute little addition in the middle of the floor
I found them like this while I was taking pictures… apparently they take their play mat time very seriously.
And lastly, a picture of the backyard, also taken from the real estate listing, because again- walking outside to take pictures in August? Not going to happen.
So there you have it! In case I never mentioned it before, the main reason we moved was for convenience. The new house is 3.5 miles from my office/the twins' daycare, and has cut Brian's commute about in half.
We're more or less in the middle of Sugar Land, which means we have easy access to just about anything we need (perhaps most importantly, a wide variety of Mexican restaurants). All that to say, we would love for you to come visit, so if you're ever in the area, be sure to let me know!
Thanks for joining me on the virtual tour!
