Moving on Up

Well, it’s been over two weeks since we moved to Baton Rouge, and I still hadn’t made my inaugural post despite the fact that I am jobless. I wasn’t sure how much longer “I’m unpacking, already” was going to fly as an excuse for not entering the land of Blog. What power I have. (Does anybody even READ this?) I wouldn’t.

SO. The house. Yes, the house. Seeing as I lived here (off and on) for nearly six years before getting married, it’s not really “new” to me. But we’re trying. We’ve painted the guest room “Motor City Blue” and the study “Wild Hawk.” Wild Hawk houses Hans’ desk, three overloaded bookshelves, a twin-sized cot, and our old couch. It’s our most multi-functional room. (Hans can take naps between working on his sermon illustrations) Here the rooms are, in all their newfound glory:

Guest Bedroom

The Study

We’re still in the market for a living room set, a few nursery items, and maybe some paint for the bathroom upstairs (currently a too-bright-shade of light blue). I’ve gone garage saling with a friend two of the three Saturday mornings I’ve been here. While I didn’t find a suitable living room set, I did buy a CD of 102 children’s songs…which I’m listening to right now. “…roll over…so they all rolled over, and one fell out. There were four in the bed and the little one said, ‘Roll over, roll over.’ So they all rolled over, and one fell out…” Learning to subtract has never been so fun (or…weird).

Anyway, I think I’m going to try to obtain a library card. With acomplia in usa all this free time, I’m trying to read as much as possible. My only problem is I like to read while lying in bed…which leads to falling asleep in bed… I guess the baby needs the rest? Yes. The baby. Everything is about the baby now.

Which reminds me, I probably should eat a cookie.

Plus, that’s enough reading about my super interesting life for one day.

  1. Dear Courtney,
    We share a fixation on dark dramatic paint colors being a good disguise for shabby furniture, I think. Every house I’ve ever lived in (that wasn’t rented by my husband or owned by my father) I’ve painted some version of Motor City Blue as quickly as possible. And I promise to read whatever you post – I put you on my Google Reader!

  2. OK, I should clarify and say that your furniture is not shabby, (the bedroom looks especially nice), but MINE usually is, and I was struck by our similar choice of colors. Badly phrased: I do apologize.

  3. I’ll definitely be reading the Googer blog! It’s almost like you’re here…all we need is online scrabble!

  4. Hey Courtney!!! It’s great to see you guys are doing this. Wish I could get Miranda to write on mine some. Praying for you as you guys settle in a bit more.

    I added you guys to my “blog roll” and am excited that I can keep updated on what’s up with you here.

    PS: I like Motor City Blue.
