4-ish More Weeks!
As you may have read in my last blog post, we are scheduled to close on A Hosting Home in just 4 short weeks. That’s right, y’all! Hopefully we’ll be moving over Thanksgiving! While it seems impossible right now with all there is left to do, they hung drywall last week and assured us that it’s all smooth sailing from here. Needless to say, I’m loving getting to see it all come together so quickly. We’ve been stopping by the house almost every weekday to check-in, see how it’s going, and (of course!) document the progress. With how fast they are working, we are afraid to blink and miss it!
I definitely had one of those panic moments this past weekend when I realized that my time was getting shorter while my to-do list is getting longer. Between my business and blog, client work, packing, furniture restoration projects, and a million of other things, I realized it was time to get serious. (That’s a planner for you!) However, in the midst of oncoming chaos, I’m remaining beyond thankful to God that I get to live this life of mine. (And that some days, when I work from home, nobody even knows whether I bothered to change out of my sweatpants! 😉 )
A Hosting Home Inspiration
Like I mentioned in my DIY Magnolia Wreath Tutorial post, this is Rob and I’s first home after living in rentals the past couple years. We went into our rentals with the mindset of it being temporary. So, we haven’t made a lot of investment into furniture and decor until now. Now that we’re building a home to hopefully plant some roots here in Georgia, this is really our first home that we will get to decorate and make our own. There’s honestly so much we are wanting to do with our new home, and I find myself growing more and more excited by the day. With Liz Marie’s blog, the Magnolia Market website, and Pinterest on what feels like the Internet speed dial, I’ve been using some spare minutes at the end of the day to dream, design, and plan out our new space.

As you could probably tell from this photo from the wreath tutorial, I’ve been playing around in our guest bedrooms, (slash storage rooms right now while we get ready to move!) and styling new pieces that we’ve picked up here and there out of the pure excitement. Along with some furniture restoration projects I’m working on, I’ve found it’s keeping me inspired and excited in the midst of some of the stress.

What I’m Currently Shopping For
Like I’ve said before, I really wanted to take my time with our new home and set it up in a thoughtful way with things we absolutely loved. Since I’m asked all the time about what kind of design I’m thinking about for our new home, I thought I’d share a round-up of what I’m currently all heart eyes for. Obviously, I couldn’t include everything this time around, so there will have to be a Part 2 (to Part Infinity) of this post. I mean, who knows. You may want to convince your husband to let you redecorate your house now after seeing this post. (Blame it on me. You’re welcome, ladies!)

I have always wanted a little farmhouse of my own. Y’all, I’m talking even before my obsession with Fixer Upper. There’s just always been a dream of rocking on the front porch with a snoring pup while my kids ran around outside with the perfect rolling view. It’s actually one of Rob and I’s goals one day to own land and have our own little farm we’ll raise our children on. But, while the days of having an actual farmhouse seem far off, right now I’ll settle for my farmhouse decor in our small West Georgia town.
