New Digs

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to move into this great house in Pensacola.  We literally signed the lease the day it came available.  We looked at a whole lot of houses in the area, but I really had my heart set on this one.  I'm so glad we were able to get it.  Sure, it's not the biggest, newest, or nicest, but I love the street, neighborhood, access to everything and most of all I love that his house has a pool in the back yard.
Our first pool side dinner a few weeks ago.
The house also has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, family room, breakfast nook, kitchen, dining room, and a 2 car garage on the side.  We love that we found such a great place to rent for the next 3 years! 
The house is really dark in this picture, hidden under the massive Live Oak tree in the front yard.  I LOVE that big old tree.  We have plans to paint the front shutters to brighten up the front of the house.

We put in the little flower garden around the mail box.  It's filled in a lot over the last couple weeks.  We'll see how it handles the intense FL heat this summer.  

We've been doing little projects like getting all the plumbing fixed, working on the yard and basically just trying to get moved in and settled.  The inside is mostly done, but we ordered a new bedroom furniture set, so I'll wait until we get it before I give you a peak inside.

I just love swinging on the front porch in the afternoons! 
I've wanted to live in a house for so long now.  I was so over living in an apartment!  But, wow, houses are so much more work.  The yard work alone, sheesh!  But, it's so worth it.  I love our new home!

Stay tuned next for a sneak peek into our baby's room!
