{friday house day!} it’s all in the details…

the storms have continued this week, and luckily there were a few days without rain, so they were able to FINISH the brick and stone!! they still need to paint the garage, front door and stain the wood post and accents darker, but it’s very exciting to see this stage done!11.5.15

it’s been really dark inside the rooms and bathrooms with no sun in sight this week, so i don’t have photos…but they installed the master bathroom glass shower surround, all the bathroom mirrors, and bathroom accessories.

then today they installed all the light fixtures, recessed lighting and bathroom lights.
11.6.15 (2) 11.6.15 (3)next week they’ll be starting the landscaping, sprinkler systems and sod outside in both the back and front yards, and in the next two weeks they’ll be finishing up the details – ceiling fans, outlet covers, light switches, cabinet trim, and carpet installation!

our lost babies…{halloween 2015}

it was our first halloween here in texas, and let me tell you – it was a good one!

we were invited by some new friends (and future neighbors) to join the little cul-da-sac block party and trick-or-treat our future neighborhood! we had a blast, the kids were in heaven, and we met tons of our amazing new neighbors! we are so excited to live in a place full of families, sweet people and an amazing lifestyle for our babies. it makes us that much more excited to get in the house!

here are some photos of our peter pan crew…

{friday house day!} rain rain go awayyyy…

not much to report this week! we’ve had some crazy storms here and it’s caused a bit of a delay with the house action. we had our cable outlets installed and our alarm system set up and wired.

they should be finishing up with the stone and brick in the next couple days…they finished both sides, now they just need to finish the front and the porch!
10.29.15 (1) 10.29.15 (2)hopefully next week, i’ll have more to report!!

xo, marley.

{friday house day!} movin right along…

we have had some yucky sickness going through the house this week, lots of vitamin c, cough syrup, lozenges, antibiotics and tissues all around! i’m not quite sure our bodies were ready for these texas season changes! we’ve got an epic storm that started our direction and i have a feeling it might have an effect the progress on the house this coming week!

we were so very excited to see that they installed our granite throughout the house last friday…
10.16.15 (1) and also my big beautiful FARMHOUSE sink!!!! {all the heart eyes!}
10.16.15 (3)10.16.15 (4)10.16.15 (5){they also had a little mess-up on the bathroom floor tile grout, and they ended up fixing that yesterday, so it’s now the gray it was supposed to be!}

they also added all the sinks, faucets, shower heads and details throughout the kitchen and bathrooms!

they started the trim work and the staircase and half wall details as well…
10.19.15and the stone arrived! which is even prettier in person! so they got started on the left side of the house…
10.17.1510.22.15 (2) 10.22.15 (1)i think next week they’ll be working on our backsplash, finishing cabinet trim, final paint, vents, outlets and all those little details!

we’re getting close to the finish line….just a few more weeks!!!

xo, marley.

{friday house day} big changes!

last week was about walls, and this week was about floors! all of our flooring (besides the carpet) was installed!! unfortunately, i realized a little too late that they cover it all up once they are done (duh!) so i don’t have final pictures of any of it! 😦

they ended up pouring our driveway, walkways and sidewalk last friday! which was super exciting and kind of a relief. we were told that one hold up can be the concrete, because it is weather dependent and they usually wait till the very end of the build to lay it. with ‘the end’ of our build falling in November, we were scared rain might cause some issue. so we were stoked to see it done already and not have to worry about that potential delay before closing.

10.9.15 (1)10.9.15 (2)on tuesday they scraped, cleaned and prepped the slab for our flooring…

10.13.15 (1)10.13.15 (2)and while they were prepping and laying flooring in the house, they also painted the stucco on the outside. we picked a lighter color, and i love how it came out. i can’t WAIT to see the brick and stone we chose against it! hopefully they’ll get working on that soon.10.13.15 (3)

here was yesterday morning’s bathroom tile progress…10.15.15 (1)and when we went by last night – it was all DONE! (and covered) it’s pretty amazing how quickly they can lay flooring!10.15.15 (3)

next up is countertops! yay!

nine months…

today, this little pumpkin is NINE MONTHS OLD!!! {insert huge sad face here}
IMG_5639i can’t believe how fast the last few months have gone. i think having children just fast forwards your life. i remember when a month used to feel like an eternity. and now a month feels like three blinks.

emersyn has been a little well, lazy, errr…on ‘her own schedule’ you could say. weston and kennadie were on the move at 4 months old, crawling before they could sit up, and walking at 9 months. let’s just say emy does not feel the need to follow suit. 😉 but this month she did make some huge strides! i think she woke up one day and decided…today’s the day i’m going to grow up! two teeth popped out and she was on the move! she’s been army crawling for a month or so, and sitting for a while, but now she’s cruising the house and just started standing up against things. she gets this smirk as soon as she gets up. it’s pretty good.

she’s also fallen head over heels for her daddy lately. the whole world stops when he walks in the door. and let me tell you…it’s been a long time comin! needless to say, she’s got him riiiight where she wants him. {wrapped tightly around her tiny little finger}

here are some quick snaps from this morning…and as i tell her every.single.day….i seriously couldn’t love her more. ❤
