*The giveaway after this awesome good news is sponsored by Carter’s. See below for additional disclosures.
I’ve been reluctant to blurt this from the rooftops because I’m afraid to jinx it, but it’s finally starting to sink in so here I go… We’re moving!
Not far, just to the burbs. We’ve been thinking and praying about where to move a long time. I’d say years even. We found the perfect place last month, put money down, and we’re officially under contract. The builders are scheduled to break ground this Friday.
It’s a one story right on the edge of a culd-a-sac, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living rooms, and two dining rooms. It truly is my (realistic) dream house. Needless to say my Pinterest boards are off the chain. We set an appointment for four-hours worth of design decisions and were done in two. I agonized over making the right choices the weeks leading up to the appointment, but during, I choose colors in a split second, and spit out my answers like a confident Jeopardy champ. I really hope I’m still happy with it once it all comes together. This is totally new for me. We own a condo too, but it was already built when we bought it, so picking out the insides and waiting for it to come together is whole different ballgame.
I snapped this photo the day after we bought our lot when I drove by to see the SOLD sign. I don’t have a natural eye for decorations but I do know I’m going to fill this new place with TONS of photographs.
And see that cute little number my little guy is wearing? I made that! Link to the cute tutorial is in my sidebar (to the right)! It’s made from a Carter’s bodysuit. For my daughter, most of her clothes are from boutiques. But for my son, for his first wardrobe, I love layering cute things from Carter’s. They have the most adorable layette collections that can be layered and miss-matched for different looks. I get a lot of cute out of date stuff at my local consignment store, and the new baby clothes in their store or online.
I personally love the bright colors of the Little Speedster collection. And my grandmother sent us pieces of one of their elephant collections as well. The “Elephant Friends” collection features shades of blue and elephants.
Another nice thing about our new place is we’ll have WAY more closet space. And since Big T’s wardrobe is already close to rivaling his sisters (definitely ahead of what hers was at his age) we’ll need all the space we can get for my stylish duo.
Lucky me, Carter’s sent me a gift card and to try some of their new collection and is sponsoring a $50 Carter’s gift card giveaway with you, that you will be free to use at your local store! So let’s celebrate our good news with a giveaway! It’s not a house but hey, it’s still awesome.
