I want to start by saying, Happy Valentine's Day! It is my prayer that everyone experiences the kind of love that I've found. The love of my amazing husband, family, and friends is what makes all the tough times in life worth it at the end of each day. It is what keeps me going and I am so incredibly blessed.
Today was a very special day, not only because of Valentine's Day but we bought our VERY FIRST HOUSE!!! Clay and I could not be more excited to begin the next chapter of our life. This blog is intended to document our journey and keep all of the people we love up-to-date with all the latest renovations and decorating that goes on!
We were so excited to be able to get started on the house today. Luckily, we were both able to take the day off so we could do some unpacking and painting after our closing. Everything went well with the closing and we were at our new house by 11:00 am! We unpacked some things, took a walk around our property, and just enjoyed being in our new house together. For lunch, I wanted to embrace the small town of Pickens and go to some cute little diner downtown. Clay wanted to go to Pizza Inn. I won. We found a spot that will most definitely be a weekly dinner spot for us...Corner Cafe. For those of you that have never been, you are in for a treat. Friendly staff, amazing (aka greasy) food. After lunch we went to Lowe's and picked out paint colors for our bedroom and our 'shabby chic' room. We chose 'tiara' pink for the shabby room and 'hot springs' (blueish-greenish) for our bedroom. We started painting our room tonight and it looks great! We are hoping to get some more things moved in and some more painting finished throughout the week, so there will definitely be more updates!
P.S. Clay won battle #2- what to eat for dinner...we had Pizza Inn. It was de-lish.
