Gimme a minute... :)

Soo... I moved on Sunday. I mean it's been a WHOLE YEAR since
I moved so I was getting the itch.
I'm totally lying. Like a rug.

What I was itching for though, was a house with a yard.
Since they come on the market for rent almost
never here in Carp, this house is a total blessing:)

I've been praying for the perfect house.
And here it is!
I had to laugh. Was this the Lord's way of reminding
me from whence I came?? This house is
sooo Arizona!! hahahaha!!

But let me tell you, this house has wood floors and crisp white 
walls and gorgeous original windows.
But the best part?
That's my back gate on the left, and 
RIO'S front gate on the right!!

She rents the guest house in the back, which is how we
got the lead on this house.
It's who ya know people!!

Little Bully finally has a yard. So maybe he'll 
do some slimming down??
I'm thinking he's going to stuff his face with the
avocados that fall from the tree, and
explode alla Violet Beauregarde.

In the middle of all the chaos and craziness,
I came across this lovely bottle of our favorite
wine and popped that cork.

It's so hard for me to take a breather when I move into a new place.
I want it done NOW!
But this time I decided to go against every fiber of my being
and take a minute to savor this special moment:)

Oh don't be fooled!!
I said a MOMENT!! 
I've had these chairs in storage for a year and I 
couldn't WAIT another second to set 'em up!

Awww smile!!
Or snile??
THAT'S going to bug me....

  4. I am so happy that you are in a house with a yard-being the big dog lover that I am! Also, I know you will put your stamp on this rental and it will look amazing! Being that close to your daughter has got to be the best ever!

  5. Oh my! You crack me up! Congrats!!!
    Glad you know people!!! ; ) Wow! It is a replica of what you left here in AZ! I look forward to seeing what becomes of this new homestead and your creative ways! Its wonderful for you and your adorable Bully to have a bit of yard to play in!!!!

    AZ had a major monsoon storm last night that created some crazy havoc!
    ENJOY your decorating!!! .

  9. so happy for you. can't wait to see more!

  10. Just love your sass girl! You certainly have a way with words!
    PS.Drove through your old neighborhood. Lost a giant tree from your first really big reno and the city lost one in the median. :(

  11. Hey you have nice collection.I Like chair with the smily pillow. thnaks for share the nice tutorial.

  12. It appears that you’ve got the complete package with that new house of yours: an elegant-looking facade, a cool lawn, some solid interiors, and a good location. Well, either one of those traits can make owning a new house very satisfying. Which is why yours is particularly stunning, to say the least. It also serves as a fine example of what others can decide to buy should they go into a house-hunting trip. Thanks for sharing!
