Destination: El Paso

As you read this we are most likely loading up the car and Penske with our worldly possessions to head out of Columbus. *tear* But that's for another post.

Since I mentioned purchasing a new house to you guys, I thought it only fair to include some pics for you. I feel comfortable doing this because, as far as I can tell, there's nothing in these pics to indicate exactly where in El Paso we are living.

Anyway, if you recall, last month just prior to starting NaNoWriMo, I went to El Paso solo to find us a house. I did and we are very excited about it.

Here is the bare-bones look at our new house. There are a few housewares in there but they are for staging, not our things. Once I get it looking pretty, I'll post "after" pictures as well. :)

Front outside
Back yard
In case you can't tell, that's just dirt in the yard. :) Yes, it's the desert, but even in the desert people landscape. Except these people, obviously. We have big plans.
Notice the chainlink fence: they had a Malamute.
Inside from kitchen, view of front door and guest bedroom
View from guest bathroom hallway
Guest bathroom, nothing special
Guest bedroom (both basically the same, only took one photo)
Master bedroom
Walk-in, off bathroom
Master bathroom, shower to the right side (not able to get in pic, mostly showing double vanity), closet to the left - in the mirror
So, that's basically it. I'm really excited about getting there and making it pretty. Just don't expect magical results right away. I work slow. :) But I plan on finally indulging my love of wall appliqués!


  1. Looks like a wonderful house!! I bet you're super excited to move in.

  2. What a great house! It looks super spacious.

    I will be praying for a safe, uneventful drive!

  3. YAY for a new house! Have a safe drive.

  4. My dad lives in El Paso and he loves it. Hopefully you will enjoy it at least half as much. (Trust me, that will be A TON.)

    The house is very nice! I love the staging--who puts a plant in the closet?! ;)

  5. How freaking exciting!! Be safe :) I'll be driving through El Paso for like the 487067th time in just a couple months!

  6. What a cute house! I LOVE the openness of the kitchen/dining and living room. Have fun decorating and playing with the new house!!

  7. Loooooove the house! I'm actually dying to get a house like that. Desert and all. Have a safe drive down there!

  8. Safe travels! At least the weather should be decent for a road trip :)
    I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  9. Wow, what a beautiful new home! Can't wait to see pics of it filled with all your homey goodness! Especially the wall appliqués. :-)

    Best of luck moving!

  10. Such a cute house! It was nice to read that you're sad to leave Columbus (if I remember correctly you are referring to GA, if not..just ignore this part haha) because my fiance's first duty station is there and I will be moving down this summer. I hope your move goes well!

  11. I think it's gorgeous! I'm so jealous of all your space!

  12. Love the house :)

  13. That house looks beautiful! You are so creative, I bet you are going to make it look fantastic. I cannot wait to see pictures of it all completed!

  14. Looks great! We're PCSing to Bliss this June, but we'll be living on post. :)

  15. Got really excited when I read your blog title!! The unit is having a ball on the 8th.. will you guys be here by then?? Would be fun to go together!

  16. I recommend Western Hills United Methodist Church. 524 Thunderbird.

  17. It looks great! I'm sure you're going to turn into a loving home!

  18. What a great house! You picked a good one!
