My White House Update.


We are in the slow part of house building, lots of things happening, but still so far to go. We usually stop by after Sunday church to see that weeks progress. Oliver is very type A and inspects everything, I walk in and go 'yup, looks good to me' ahahah.


This is our living room with the kitchen to the right, I love all the windows so much. I want everything white and bright, no dark corners! The ceiling looks different in this room because we added coffered ceilings, might be my favorite thing about the house. I had a friend do it in her home and I totally copied her, honestly it wasn't even very expensive to add on and it will make a huge difference in the room.


This is our master, again loving the windows. We will be adding barn doors that will lead to the bathroom. One of the things I hate about our current house is that the wall for the bed is not big enough for a king size bed and two end tables, I squeeze in two tiny tables but it has always annoyed me. I was very sure to measure this before we signed off on the floor plans.


We combined the game room and media rooms for Ollie Marie, just added french doors to shut it off from the rest of the upstairs. The kids both have bedrooms upstairs, I'm anticipating them both having a hard time adjusting to being on a different floor from us - mostly Madison. We've been talking it up, but she's still a terrible sleeper at almost 8. She has a hard time staying asleep, then when she does wake up she gets scared by herself.


This is the other side of the windows up here, the 'wall' for pictures. I'm not sure if I'll do Stikwood again or maybe change it up? So torn, the Stikwood is really neutral which is a big plus, but maybe a white washed brick? I've been skimming Pinterest for ideas.



The biggest selling point for me was this lot, we couldn't afford a bigger house and a bigger yard. Right now we live on a full acre, but the new house is like .3 of an acre I think. Still the way the house sits and the fact that we are on a corner lot gave us a decent backyard, plus we have seriously close access to the pool. Madison is already planning her summer around her pool schedule. I have no doubt she'll have 5 best friends the first week of summer break. 


Next they will start to blow in insulation and drywall I think. They started to talk about wiring and boring guy stuff during the walk through today and I tuned out. Probably in the next month we will have to close and sell our house - this is the part that freaks me out. The timing of each, but people do this all the time so I know we will work it out. 

While I'm happy and excited to move into our forever home it also really brings up feelings of fear in me. That I'm not worthy of such blessings in my life. What have I done to earn this life? A lot of days I'm just waiting for that other shoe to drop, the bad news. These feelings have led me to strengthen my relationship with Jesus. I've been at the bottom, I already know what it feels like and I know exactly how I got out of it, Him. I shouldn't live in fear, but that's just what I'm going through right now. I'm working on it.

  1. It made my day to see that you included some thoughts about your faith in Jesus!! What better way to use the platform He's blessed you with than to encourage others to trust in Him, especially when going through life's low points. Keep being you, you're awesome!

  2. Ditto to Shelby's points above! Your courage and generosity Are truly gifts from God - trusting in Him is hard - so much easier to put faith in something more tangible, but so encouraged that this process has grown your faith in Him! So excited to see the finished product!

  4. When you get a chance check out the book by Joyce Meyer "Battlefield of the Mind". It's amazing and teaches you (by scripture) that you CAN control these negative thoughts. The Lord wants you to live and walk in freedom which includes the thoughts you have. God bless you and your precious family. <3

  5. Long time reader, but I have never commented before. I know exactly how you feel about feeling guilty or unworthy of the blessings God has given me. It has led me to sabotage my weight loss goals and doubt my worthiness; but at the end of the day I realize where that feeling is coming from...

    Our worth is never conditional on how hard we work, or what we do. God loves us for exactly who we are, flaws and all. You have worked hard, and deserve every blessing that comes your way. Good luck with the house building process, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

  10. Megan, the house is coming along great, as far as your current house the realtor with make it smooth, just explain you can't move out until the date your house is available. Now as far as saying you don't feel you don't deserve this why? Every good person deserves good things in life, you work hard, Ollie works hard, your both great parents, and you are an amazing figure to society, as well as an inspiration. Look girl if you didn't deserve this you wouldn't have gotten finance, God blessed you with that and instead of questioning him you should be thanking him. It's going to be ok have faith in the man who blessed you! God Bless

  11. What a lovely home! We've got our house on the market and are trying to sell it by May to move into the home we want. For me, it's a daily battle to not worry about the timing but I'm trying hard to just leave it in God's hands. I know He only wants good things for me and you too. If a hard time comes, He will be faithful and use that challenge to grow us. I love getting a peek into your building process and can't wait to see how cute you decorate the house.

  15. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    My name is Minerva D. Taylor from UK
    My boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Adams can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Adams. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Adamsusmanultimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
    I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
