The Rauches Bought a House!


We graduated college, got married, had a couple kids, and we're taking one of our last "first steps" into adulthood... Joel and I are buying a house!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we have attempted this before, but it didn't go so well. It was divine providence that it didn't work out, and it is a breath of fresh air to have everything fall into place this time around. We have t-minus 16 days until closing (unless we close early!) and I have quite a bit of packing to do in the meantime. So of course, I am sitting on the floor playing with Celine and blogging.

 We have gotten a little done though... we sold half of our furniture on local Facebook for-sale groups (less to move + cash in the pocket = win) and as you can see in the background, I've managed to put a few things into bags and boxes so far. I promise, my kid is not playing on the floor next to garbage... in those bags are throw pillows, blankets, and stuffed toys.

We do have a little bit of updating to do on our new little home and I have been pinning incessantly and window shopping galore to prepare myself. We have color schemes, flooring, layout, and some decor pieces picked out and I can't wait to see everything come together. Hopefully it looks as wonderful in my house as it does in my head. Just for fun, I'll give you a couple of teasers from my inspiration boards:




Celine hasn't picked up yet that anything is changing, which cracks us up given we're missing furniture or something is moved when she waked up from any given nap. She is too busy with cruising the furniture and eating anything we put in front of her to care. She can crawl pretty much the length of the house now, and knows when she's doing something she's not supposed to (the peek back at us before she goes for the TV cords behind the stand is a dead giveaway). Her favorite activity as of late is pulling out baskets, boxes, and tubs and, one by one, removing every item from inside before leaving the heap on the floor to find the next box. It could be worse.

Until next time!
