So let me just tell you how much fun it has been house shopping.  I’ve been in my little one bedroom apartment for about 5 years now and have been dying to have more space!
And a much bigger kitchen.

Over the past few weeks I have been in model home after model home and have decided that I’m probably the most pickiest person alive.  No really I am.  I know exactly what I want in my future home and even the most gorgeous of places is always missing something.  That’s why I’ve decided to build new and pick everything out, plus it will be fun to capture everything in the process!
Now before you start commenting on how ridiculously picky I am….don’t worry I’m fully aware.  But this is literally the most expensive purchase of my life and I don’t want to just like my new home, I want to LOVE it!  This now leads into my next ridiculous obsession - Pinterest.  Folks I think I may need to go to meetings, it’s that bad.
Ever since I committed myself to purchasing a home, I’ve been pinning ideas like a crazy person!  I now have my Pinterest page organized into each room of the house and ways I plan on decorating it.  I started off completely realistic, pinning only spaces that I knew were in my budget and that I could actually create.  Well now I find myself pinning huge gourmet kitchens with marble counter tops and designer walk-in closets!
…HELP!
And what is my with obsession with white??  I mean let’s be real people…I’m 28 years old and will eventually be having kids one day.  A white living room, white kitchen and white master bedroom is NOT going to survive children.  It’s just not.  Someone please come save me!
