Tuesday’s Tribute-being settled

This week I chose to Tribute the state of being settled.

It’s one of those things that I know I take for granted until I’m un-settled. And let me tell you, this move has been, well, unsettling. Jeff and I have worked our hind ends off, and it’s all finally come together.

We are offically moved in, and all that is left to do are finishing touches……a lot of finishing touches. But still.

So, by popular request, I present to you MY state of settled:

(I thought I was being pretty snazzy by putting text on my pictures……I just didn’t realize it was such small text. So, you might have to double click the images to read my commentary.)

See, lots of proof that I adore brown.
Being Settled.

  11. It looks wonderful…

    Love the bedroom and table…

  12. parentingBYdummies says

    Looks amazing! You must be feeling very relieved. I'm so agitated when my house is unsettled and things are outta there places. Not the everyday mess I live in, because toys actually belong on the floor, don't they? It's the things are just not right feeling you get in the midst of a move that I can't stand. Congrats!

  13. blueviolet says

    That is just beautiful!

  14. So glad that you are getting really 'moved' in–so thrilled for you! Everything is just beautiful–and I also have a 'thing' for brown!

  33. Your home is gorgeous!! And so grown-up!! My house looks like kids designed and decorated it … and I'm pretty sure I'm older than you!

  34. Elaine A. says

    The place looks fantastic Angie! Like something out of a magazine. Congratulations, all your hard work REALLY paid off!

    And I LOVE your bedding!!

  35. scrappysue says

    just in time for wednesday – almost!!!

  36. BoufMom9 says

    It looks just fantastic! I can not wait to be settled as well.
    You have done a wonderful job and boy, I think i would do my blogging there too!!! COMMMMM-FY!

  37. Its so fun to see pictures of your house, I especially like the new "blogging station" 🙂

  38. Seriously. Could your kids BE any cuter? I remember thinking some of those same thoughts the first time I visited Hollywood. I thought it would be all glitz and glamor, but I'll never forget some of the things I saw. It's quite an eye opener, and it sounds like you are teaching your kids some really important lessons early on.

  39. Please ignore my Mr. Linky here – I accidentally put it here first instead of WW. Sorry!

  40. girlytwins says

  41. I love your house!

  42. Are You Serious! says

    ♥ i love it!!! It's seriously fabulous!!! I love all of your choices! 🙂

  43. where did you get your rug? i bought a similar one from Sam's but it sheds TERRIBLY! i have a newly crawling 6 month old daughter who I don't want eating wool, so i've been looking for a replacement.

  44. Clark Captions says
