Merry Christmas

I hope you & your family have a very Merry Christmas! It will be the first time in TEN years that we haven't traveled for a holiday! Yay- the benefits of living around family. We will be in Spurger on the farm enjoying time with the extended Levins crew. Hope all of you enjoy this Holiday season!


Maternity Pics

I changed out of my stretch pants yesterday afternoon & asked Rodney if he would take a few pics of the belly. I don't have a photography friend here like I did in Raleigh so no 'real' photo shoot of the belly this time but I think my dad Rodney did a good job. Here are some pics from at 34 weeks!

I've been so busy with Paisley & our house that I seriously cannot believe that I'll have another baby here in just a month. Seems kinda crazy but he'll be on his way soon!!! Pray for me if you think about it. 2 kids under 2 should be one of the greatest adventures of my life :-)


A lot of paint & some granite

The house is really starting to transform! While we were in Atlanta for Thanksgiving, they painted it! It's amazing how some paint on some sheet rock can really change a house. By the time I got there on Tuesday, they already had the granite in. It feels like its going to be forever before we get into this house but its only just a matter of a few weeks away!!!

Here are some current photos. I really wish I had a wide angle to give you more perspective but I don't. You'll just have to use your imagination.

Initially I wanted the 'default' color to be a light gray and go with the current trend. But once I realized that NONE of our furniture would match gray then I knew I had to go back to the basic tan that we had in our house in Raleigh. Although it's the same, I plan to add color in curtains, pillows & hopefully some new art work.

I love our built in entertainment center. That was a Pinterest that I had to sell Todd on. That wall is so big that it would have looked weird just to put our tv on it. I seriously think it will become the center of our living room.

WHITE Kitchen Cabinets! I have dreamed of these for years. The painters will come back at the end and do a distressed glazing on them but they look so good now! Love them.

Tile has started to go in as well.

My favorite part of the house is my desk area. It's off the kitchen wall right by my laundry room. I really wanted to paint the cabinets a different color to make this area stand out and I'm pleased with the color. Another idea from Pinterest.

I also painted my laundry room the same color as my desk.

Next up? A soft blue in our bedroom.

The master tub is up & they'll finish up the tile work behind it next week. I can't wait to fill that sucker up, drink a glass of wine, turn on the candles and chill in that thing. Whirlpools here I come!!!

His & her vanity.

Hunter's room and the kids' bath is the same blue as our room.

Paisley's room is the only room where I did the light gray. I really like it and think it will look so nice with her white crib.

And they finally stained our front door. Todd actually picked out the Texas star front door. Guess that means he's a real Texas now!

Hard wood floors, finishing the tile, carpet and lights are on schedule for next week. I'll post more pics when I have some. Still can't believe I'll have my own house soon. So excited!!!!


Thanksgiving 2013

We spent Thanksgiving in Atlanta with the Craig's this year. We had a really good time and Paisley didn't get sick until the very end which is a huge praise.

We started off the week at the Atlanta Aquarium with Marcus, Lisa & the kids. P had a great time! She loved looking at all the fish but her favorite thing was to run around the place. I let Todd chase after her while I manned the camera.

Thanksgiving was spent at Sean & Kristen's with lots of food & lots of playing! 5 little ones in one house is kinda crazy but lots of fun.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!
Lots of love,
