Updates, updates, and more updates!

So I have a few pictures to show you! We have lived in our new home for just over a month now and I still haven't gotten any pictures up on here! I needed to change that so here are some pictures of our lovely home!

I am really proud of our home. Not only did I decorate it but my husband put in his two cents! I am so proud of him! The only decisions I make easily are choices of what will be put into our house. He picked out the art in our living room, 2 of our love seats and the area rug. He also picked out our comforter and our sheets! I am such a lucky woman!

The picture in the living room behind the maroon couch is his as well. The one on the windowsill it now hanging up next to the kitchen.

My favorite part of our house is that all of the furniture, besides the bed frame, we got off of! If you haven't heard of it go check it out! It is absolutely addicting! I believe there is one for pendleton too? I would check around your local base to see if you have one because it is worth it.
We got the 3 love seats, the coffee table, a bookshelf, computer desk, dinner table with 4 chairs, washer and dryer, and 2 beautiful floor lamps all for about $600!! Ummmm...SCORE!!!! If you are a newly wed and moving to the area then I highly suggest checking out this site! They have everything, not just furniture.

And then there is our puppy!! These pictures got up in opposite of how I wanted them lol. From bottom to top is how our puppy, Bo, has grown since we've had him. This first picture is my favorite. My two favorite men snuggled on the couch together!

This one is when Bo got neutered. Poor guy had to wear a cone!

This is my little sister with Bo before we moved to North Carolina.

So anyways, my life in North Carolina and with the base has been pretty interesting. We live about 3 minutes from from the side gate. This is good and bad. It's great when I need to go on base. It's a quick trip. It's horrible when its early in the morning and it sounds like explosives are being used in your back yard and your house is shaking. I live far enough away where there is a good amount of space between my house and the base so I didn't expect to hear or feel any of this. I also did not get any warning, thank you Jon, so when it first started happening I was freaking out haha. I am getting used to it but yesterday it was louder than ever so I guess I will just have to deal with the fact that my husband is a marine, therefore I had to deal with explosives.

I am not suggesting you try and live further away. Trust me the commute to the base would be awful. We live in Hubert so thankfully we have ways of avoiding the traffic in Jacksonville when we need to get to the store or go out to eat. I would honestly suggest not living in Jacksonville anywhere near the main gate. The traffic is unbearable. We have a really great location. We live on a cul de sac and have a great fenced in back yard. It's not a crowded area like you'll find a lot down here. It feels city like without getting rid of the country. I absolutely love it!

Anyways, that is my update for now. This is already way longer than it needed to be haha. I will write again soon I promise!

  1. Hello fellow Marine Wife! I'm married to a Jonathan Marine as well, haha!! Your house looks sooo similar to the one we bought (and may be returning... sad...) I love the set up and all the decorating, beautiful!

  2. That is so funny that you are married to a Jonathan too! Why do you have to resell your house??
