New, bigger house!

After living in a teeny, tiny 1,000 square foot 1949 cottage in Spokane for one year, we finally moved into a MUCH larger house.

SUPER excited!

Living in a 1,000 square foot house for the past year with 4 grown people was TIGHT! But I truly loved that tiny had SO much charm!

This house more than doubles the square footage AND it has a pool - Nana is over the moon!!! She swims like a rock. Yep. Straight to the bottom! This will be an interesting adventure fo’ sho!

The house is in need of updating, but it has great potential in my eyes (my honey thinks otherwise!) - we’re gonna have a lot of work for a while, but it’s totally going to be worth it. Fingers crossed!

We've got a lovely rustic lava rock fireplace, popcorn ceiling, orange wood accents:

Some cheap laminate flooring, really "interesting" choices in paint colors (red and yellow in the kitchen with light pink accents, creamy beige in dining room, light blue and brown in master, bright bubble gum pink in one room, purple in another, and much more!)

And I just can't get enough of the citrus accents, rose wallpaper border, and 70's lighting in one bathroom:

We've got a lot of work to do....and I cannot wait to get started.

Move in day was on Labor Day and by the end of the day we were exhausted - not from moving IN, but from moving crap OUT! Yep, seller left a TON of stuff for us to remove. Super frustrating. Her realtor came and hauled out several truckloads to the dump.

She sure earned her commission on this sale! So instead of cleaning the house so we could move in, we had to delay the move in day because not only was the house and yard full of crap, it was absolutely filthy.

I scrubbed and scrubbed everything for days on end. I’ve never seen a house this dirty - and I used to clean houses! Wow. I cannot comprehend how people can live like this.

On the positive side, we went from one bathroom to FOUR! We each get one! SO stinkin’ cool after sharing ONE bathroom in our last house.

Now we can settle in and begin dreaming of how to make this place our own - possibilities are endless!
