House Tour (Closing Day)

Justin and I had been searching for a home for at least a year and a half - always looking in the St. Louis (MO-side) area.  EVERYTHING we had seen was either sold in 1-3 days before we could check it out... or had major crackage in the foundation... we finally ended up settling just a few houses away from my parents house on the IL-side and I couldn't be happier!  We are closer to all of our friends and family, the commute is not bad at all, and we got 2x as much space for MUCH less than the areas we were looking in... here are some pictures from closing day:

 We have BIG plans for this house and we have already gotten A LOT accomplished.  I will post BEFORE & AFTERS in the near future!

Good night, xx

Print Perfection

I am swooning over this new anthro top.... sequins, embroidery, bright pink, boho-chic... what better combination?!?
