Home Sweet Home...

Happy Friday Y'all!  If you have been reading my blog for some time, you will already know this so you can skip down to the fun pictures. Just kidding, keep reading. Ben and I have been almost like nomads since we've graduated from college. I mean not real nomads but it sure feels that way.  After Ole Miss, I moved to Hattiesburg to start grad school at Southern Miss and Ben joined me 8 or 9 months later when he finished school.  We were in Hattiesburg until May of last year when we made the move to Birmingham for my externship.  Being in school, our life seems somewhat unsettled.  But as you all know, I'm graduating in May and it seems as though then we will finally be able to really start our lives. We're not sure where our "permanent" place is going to be just yet, we are leaving that part up to God. He surely knows what's best for us. 

With all that being said, I have really started dreaming and thinking and wanting a house.  I put partial blame on Patrick and Megan since they just purchased their first home. I am definitely enjoying helping Megan pick out things to fill their new space. I am also a tiny bit jealous that they can now have a grill and a gorgeous backyard to entertain.  While it all seems so far away and uncertain right now, I know that it will all become clear soon and Ben and I can start our little journey. 

In the meantime, I can still have fun right? I am a suscriber to Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Thanks, Aunt Arenda!  And I look forward to seeing it in my mailbox every month so that I can comb through the pages and rip out the pictures of rooms that I absolutely love.  Yep, I have an inspiration binder.  It even has dividers.  Hah.  I put the magazine pages in page protectors and place behind their correct tab (ie, living room, paint colors, redos, etc.)  It is wonderful and I know it will be super useful when it's time for our first place. 

I wanted to share some rooms I found from the world wide web that I just adore.

  1. Love all your inspirations! So pretty!!!

    I feel ya on the nomad thing! I moved 4 different times in 3 years because of school! Now that we have bought our house and have been there for a year it almost feels like we should be getting up and moving again! Ha!

    I'll defintely be praying for you guys in where you're supposed to go! I know how stressful that can be!

  3. When my children become nomads like their cousin Lindsey then I too will have one of those awesome craft rooms! BTW the binder thing--I did it too when me and Craig were house hunting and it sure helped--although its still and always will be a work inprogress-LOL!

  4. I can see that we have similar style because I would just love to have any one of those rooms! I know that the Lord will give you guys a season of "rest" so just hang on and see where he leads!
