Barefoot in my grass

Before we found our home I would talk about how I can't wait to run my toes through fresh green grass.


Well I finally got to do it!

And I have a lot of grass to run my toes through. About an acre to be exact. This is a picture of the side of our house.


We didn't intend on getting a house with an acre, but it just sort of happened so we went with it. Luke grew up on a lot of land, but I grew up in a neighborhood so this is all new to me



I can't wait until our trees have leaves on them and it is all green.


However I don't appreciate the spiders and mice that come with all of the grass. Yuck. And we have a small creek behind us. If I ever see a snake I am moving out.


Also yesterday I mentioned that I bought two pieces of furniture from a local artist. I am going to do my study (the room that we put the wood floor in) in yellow and black so I thought these pieces would be wonderful



I definitely want to use the chair as my desk chair, but now I am torn on whether I want to use the big piece in my study or as our TV stand. We have been looking for a new TV stand so this just might be perfect. House decisions, house decisions......


This was a completely random post, but I figured since I can't yet show you the inside of the house I could show you our yard.


Well I could show you the inside of the house but who wants to see a bunch of blank walls? Not me. So somebody come hang decorations on them! Please and thank you.

Did you purchase those in Norman? My brother and sister-in-law live there and I swear I've seen a store with these kinds of furniture featured! :)

Lauren Kelly said...

So cute!
I'm so happy for you and Luke.
Wow....an acre! You'll love that.
I'm with you though on the mice and snakes.
Hopefully you'll never, ever see a snake. Yikes!
I say just take your time decorating the walls.
Wait until you find the perfect look that you're in love with.
Sometimes I look at openhouseok.com and get ideas.
It'll all come together. Look at all you've done already.
The floors look great!

What a beautiful yard!! I'm jealous... We have 1/4 acre right now, but are hoping for more at our next place :)

Belle said...

I love the big chest! I think it would make a fabulous tv stand and would be unexpected in the living room. And I love your big yard!

Jon and Steph said...

Virginia Belle said...

So jealous of all of your grass! We still live in an apartment so I am currently dreaming of having my own yard one day. Love the furniture. It is so unique and perfect!

Yay yay I love love your barefoot grass pic! Perfect for Project 365, I think!

I love that big lot! I bet Luke is so happy to have land. Ty grew up on a TON of acreage and hates being stuck in the middle of a city.

We moved out to the country 10 yrs ago & I prayed the day I moved in for God to shield me from snakes... & I have YET to see one myself. Now, my husband sees them all the time - even in our GARAGE... GASP! But God is good... keep me blind from them Lord!

Jennifer said...

California Wife said...

Sonya said...

Love the yard! It's so nice having all the room and neighbors that aren't so close! The big piece would make a neat TV stand. Can't wait to see what you decide to do!
