Almost HOME

In no particular order, this is where my dear watson and I live:

These are the pictures hanging above our couch in the living room. The FAMILY frame is full of random pictures of couches and stairs etc, but it will be filled with pictures of us and our families soon.

This is our kitchen. Gas Stove, no dishwasher, cool clock. This is where we keep our Blend Tec blender from Will It Blend Tom Dixon himself.

This is our kitchen table, thanks to Joe and Andy. It fits perfectly in our little kitchen. When we have company we will lift the other flap and it will be round. Notice we are using camping chairs (thanks Hannah) for our kitchen chairs, something I hate and hope to change soon. I can't even reach my plate because I'm sitting so low.
Oh yeah, this is our full sized portable dishwasher in excellent condition. I found it at a yard sale yesterday for, oh, $15. I didn't forget a zero, I really only paid 15. It works great and adds 2 more feet of counter space. Yay for yard sales.
This is the pile of gifts we need to find a home for. They just sit in our living room for now.

This is my very favorite. My full sized digital keyboard equipped with stand, bench and sustain pedal. It's amazing. I love having it so I can play and sing whenever I want. The WOOT above it is also something Andy made and I bought and her craft market whenever that was.

This is our bedroom. Our closet doesn't have doors because they are the kind that slide, so you can only see half the closet at one time. I had my dear Watson take them off and shove them under the bed. I'll put a curtain over the closet eventually. Mickey and Kiana gave us that dresser.
This is our bed, thanks to my mother. She also made our bedspread which I think is beautiful. It wasn't even very hard to convince my dear Watson to allow a floral print quilt to be our bed spread.

This is our amazing peg board made by Andy. We love this probably more than anything else.

This is our bookshelf, TV and TV stand, as well as a hamper for our blankets. Notice the book my sister-in-law Valerie made us on the left hand side of the TV. This book is amazing and it deserves a spot front and center.

These are our couches. Kameron's brother-in-laws father gave them to us.

It's starting to feel like home. I love being here. Each little thing that gets put together leaves me more and more at ease. We both know that if it weren't for so many kind and generous people in our lives, we would not have a place this nice. Thanks to all of our family who helped us get our home in order. We love you all. We are eager to help you in anyway you need us to, so just give us a call!

My dear Watson just went to an interview with someone from the Bishopric to receive a calling. He called me 10 minutes after he left and said, "I'm going to be here a little longer, I have to go to a meeting now." He's still not home, so I have no idea what calling he got and it's driving me crazy with curiosity.


  1. Happy birthday! I posted this today (the day after your birthday (July 11), because I originally posted a happy birthday to you on Hannah's blog - but it didn't show up until after her birthday - along with her own "Happy Birthday". I'm telling the honest to blog truth!

  2. Oh really Ben???

    Abby I know what you should do with all those extra gifts just laying around, give them to ME! Very cute home Abby-it's perfect.

  3. Such a cute place! I'm with you on taking the closet doors off. Good idea!!

  4. Hey Abby - I have a dear Watson too! :) Fun apt, it was fun to come see it the other day when we visited Kameron! Ahhh to be newlyweds!! :)


Thanks for visiting! Leave me a message...I love them.
