Now comes the fun...

We have picked up our final plans and now comes the fun. We have the bids, the colors, the furniture, the cabinets, the counter tops, the flooring, the faucets, the hardware, the doors and the landscaping left!!! I know I have left off at least 1,000 other items. :-) But I am ready! I'm ready to have more space, I'm ready to have more organization and I am ready to have our bedroom back. If any of you have any great tips that you would like to share I would love to hear from you. I have a huge folder of ideas, now I just need to start weeding them out.

House Plans Complete

On Thursday Chris and I traveled to Memphis to meet with our architect. We now have completed our plans and will have our final meeting on April 17th. Our final plans included three children's bedrooms/ bathrooms. We moved Will Henry's closet so we would have access to the attic for a possible fourth bedroom/bathroom. Our architect calls it a "future bedroom and bathroom". I like that term, "future". Our architect is a strong, gentle, Christian man that seems to be a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He seems to be able to determine his clients hesitations and dreams. We have a "future fourth child's bedroom". Thank you Doug for helping us design our dream house! The house to strive to achieve all of our dreams in. :)
