A Place for the Living

More real life stuff!  We moved.  Drew already covered the outside area so I thought I would do a little tour of the innards. are the innards!  We'll start with the living room:
There's plenty of room for, you know, sitting on the couch.  Clearly most of our pillows have not gotten on board our UK theme but 1 out of 5 is, um, some low percentage.  

Next is one of my favorite rooms--the kitchen!  And it has counter and cabinet space to spare. 
It is such a delight to be able to throw things hither and thither while making dinner.  

Speaking of dinner, we have a new table and now it's no longer a choice between eating at the table or watching TV during dinner.  Now we have our cake and eat it too.
 As you can see, Toothless watches over us.  Now let us go upstairs!
It is fun to have stairs!  Sometimes I drop something upstairs or stomp around and, for a brief moment, wonder if the people downstairs heard.  Then I remember that only Drew is downstairs and he'll just have to DEAL WITH IT. 


At the top of the stairs we have our children's library.  
So far one visiting child has taken advantage of it so we will call it a success.  

We also have a bathroom.  
It has a mirror in it!  And toothbrushes.

Lucky little squire Drew now has his own office room for work.  Gone are the days of having a kitchen table office, which is a win-win-win. 
If we were the kind of people to use the term, we would perhaps call this his "man cave."  As it is, we call it the office.  

One of the biggest upgrades here is that no only do we have laundry capabilities, but we have a laundry capabilities ROOM.    

We also have a bedroom!  It features a window nook that is the perfect size for our new dresser.  Did I mention we recently went to IKEA...?
Yes, come morning it is very bright in there.  We are currently pondering curtains, though I always hate to cover nice big windows.  

This room also features a closet, with plenty of room to accommodate both of our wares.
I like not digging around in the dark to find my running stuff.  Actually, I like not digging around period.

And thus concludes the tour!  Of course it's best appreciated in person, where you can see other features like the backyard space, pantry and window seat/ledge/thing.  We are happily settled in and every time the dishwasher/laundry/AC run we do a high five.  Eiffel tower!


  1. You jerk! I watched that while drinking a margarita!

  2. Ha ha haaa! That was a hilarious tour. And what a lovely house! My favorite part is that it doesn't look like it is out of the 60s and that 5,000 didn't live there before you like most apartments in Provo :) It looks very modern and spacious and just right for you guys!

  3. GIFs make everything even more amazing. congrats on the new place!

  4. What fun! looking forward to my visit in August!

  5. HA HA, I love all of those. I think my favorite is the kitchen, although the laundry room is a close second. Then the bathroom. Then the rest. Also: I want cake.

  6. Looks awesome! Two floors must feel so spacious.

  7. I just looked at all these all over again and laughed at them all over again. That laundry one is hilarious!
