welcome to our home. pt. 1

**i’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my comment button is and it’s ↑↑ actually on top of my posts in the right hand corner. it looks like a little thought bubble. super confusing, i know but i can’t change it. meh.**

happy sunday!
i know most of america is undergoing a horrible cold weather freakout, BUT seattle is stepping up it’s game and giving us so much sun! it hit 60° yesterday! it was awesome! sooo sorry for those of you that are neck deep in snow. yikes!

on to the post!
i know i promised this a lonnnng time ago and i honestly thought i would get to it sooner but we’ve been crazy busy y’all! i also didn’t know how i wanted to do it. either one huge post or maybe 2 or 3 little posts. i decided to do 2 parts.

here’s a little back story on our casa. technically, it belongs to cale & cale only. he had already had his house for 3 years before jaz and i moved up here. his own little bachelor pad! and that’s exactly what it was! cale is completely modern where as i am more traditional and like to make my house pretty with lots of decor. needless to say things changed when i moved in {sorry honey} i mean seriously y’all, he had his nintendo games framed and that’s what was on the walls in the living room. haha BACHELOR PAD!

the only thing we bought that he didn’t have {or that i didn’t like haha} was a living room set {coffee table, end tables and a buffet} we aren’t going to buy all new furniture until we move into a new house that we will be buying a couple years after the wedding. i can’t wait! it’ll be a clean slate for me to have fun with!

alright friends, welcome to our humble abode!

where all the magic happens… the kitchen. 

1524591_10202260625988498_126818102_nthis is the before. do you see what i mean about modern stuff? yep, that’s a knife man, a buddha butter thing, gnome salt & pepper shakers and a rock statue pepper grinder. the wine glass holder wasn’t there when i moved in either but that was one of the first projects we did.

and after.

i got everything {minus the wine glasses & wine} pictured here from homegoods. that place is my jam!

we usually don’t have that many flowers up there but it was valentine’s day when i snapped these. there is however, always a fresh bouquet up there.

we don’t have a dining room, we have a very small house. but we do have an extended bar that we put three stools under and that serves as our dining room.
i am not an open floor plan kind of girl. and this is an open floor plan house. so i had to separate the kitchen and the living room somehow and these were the perfect way to do that! before, we just hand some simple pendants that were very small.

where i spend my sundays… the laundry room.

sorry for the awful grainy picture, this is a cropped pic-stitch of an instagram picture. eep! so bare right? also, who the hell puts up those top shelves? unless you’re an amazon woman there is no way any woman is reaching up there. i once put my foot through the hood of the kitty’s littler box because i was climbing on top of the washer & dryer to reach my detergent. not cool.

nothing special but it’s ridiculously comfy. going to sleep is by far my favorite thing to do.

in part 2 i’ll share the living room, jazmyne’s room, and cale’s man-cave.
hope y’all enjoyed a little look into our seattle suburb home.
i love house tours so let me know if you’ve posted home tours before! i would love to hop on over to your blog and check them out!

 always,

  1. Your kitchen before and after made me smile so big. Haha! My husband and I are like that too… he’s more modern and I’m more traditional. He literally had a futon and his PC when I moved in… thanks for sharing! I loved the peek into your life 🙂

    1. Thank you! 🙂 hopefully it doesn’t take me too long to get that one posted. that would mean my daughter and fiance would have to actually clean their rooms and that’s like pulling teeth. haha
