Although We Aren’t Married……
We bought a house together, and we couldn’t be happier.
We love it.
The neighborhood and schools make it completely worth the money.
The marble counter-tops, tons of cabinet space, and window to the outside (which I did NOT have in the apartment) make up for it.
We’re able to deal with them for the time being.
The hardwood floor and giant fireplace sold us right away.
I’m lucky enough to have a boyfriend who is ok to make the laundry room into his closet (he’s still working on perfecting the “look”. He is a laundry fanatic, he actually loves having his closet in the laundry room!).
I finally have an office where I can escape and find peace. I still use the ironing board for my “stand up desk”, but we plan on putting a shelf in soon.
It’s my own and I can finally take baths.
Although the basement isn’t really “finished”…..
Nick finally has a place to himself where he can escape and find peace (this is the bathroom that is located in the laundry room. Yeah it’s kind of strange to have a random shower and toilet in the laundry room, but it’s a full bathroom!).
Although we have about 5 years of work to put into this place, Nick and I are ready for the challenge. We bought this house knowing we would be spending a lot of money to make it perfect. We are in no rush to get it completely updated, as long as it’s ready by the time we a) have kids and b) want to sell it! We are simple people and it doesn’t take much to make us happy. We’ve moved to the best suburb in Columbus and we are so proud. Thanks for stopping by 🙂 Come again!
Coco of Balance, Joy, and Delicias, is having a coconut flour giveaway, check it out here!
Today Nick and I are going to start tackling the yard (if it stops raining). I also have some work to do for work, which will mainly involve getting caught up on class preparation and dietary consultations! Tomorrow, or Tuesday, I will post about some new meals I’ve created, and I’ll also give you a look inside our cabinets and freezer.
