our house in the middle of the street

We were so excited to move out of our small apartment into an actual house. No more dark brown cabinets, a temperamental toilet, or a washer and dryer in our kitchen! The house that we are renting was built in 1942, so it is full of character. The floors squeak, there’s a random drinking fountain in our backyard, the light for the bathroom is in the hallway, and every door handle is different. We love it. Absolutely love it. (And we love not hearing any neighbors below us!) We still have a few boxes to unpack (thank goodness for a basement to store them in), but for the most part we’re all settled in. Here’s a little peek at our happy home.

*not pictured: my mom’s favorite part of the house, the creepy storage basement! haha

**I never have this many vases of flowers in my house, they’re all leftover from the baby shower.

  • Lori

    I'll give it to you, girly, you know how to decorate a house! I love it. Really.

  • Alexa Zurcher

    most of what we have we picked up at thrift stores and re-purposed (dressers, books, candle sticks, baskets, vases, anything!) or found on sale at ikea. All our frames are from thrift stores as well! 🙂

  • Eryka

    ugh, youre house is sooo cute. i am jealous. psstt. hurry up baby!

  • Amy

    Um, sometimes old houses are positively creepy and haunted! Especially when you're staying there pretty much by yourself on the first night and somehow the back door gets left open until you arrive home….around midnight. And you are positively certain that there is a creeper in the basement. Oh man, that was a long night. And one that me, Lex, & Brian can laugh about now (wait, I think B was laughing about it then, too!!!) Ha. From, Alexa's mama

  • Liz Brown

    Old houses are the only kind I've ever lived in … and the only kind I want. Matching doorknobs? Flawless floor plan? Faultless wiring and plumbing? BORING. Give me character every time. What a neat place to bring a baby home to. 🙂

  • Hannah

    Okay this is SO cute!!!
