The Smith's Pink House | Progress Photos

It's Thursday, right? Seriously the past few weeks have been a complete whirlwind. I cannot believe the progress that has been made on our home though. Ryan worked non-stop this weekend getting the marble subway tile backsplash installed, his parents came over Friday and Saturday night to help us get the TV and sound system up (that was a JOB - whoa!), and Ry also managed to finish the fireplace stone installation. He's pretty much a rockstar in my book. Our appliances were delivered on Monday morning before he left town and we got the microwave and stove in. The plumber comes tomorrow to do the sink, faucet, disposal, and dishwasher. I'm really looking forward to moving the dishwashing sink from the powder room into the kitchen! It kind of grosses me out to wash our dishes in the bathroom, not that we are using many dishes, but our coffee mugs and random pieces of silverware have to be washed in there. Our fridge was scratched and they had to order a new one, so now we are patiently waiting for the new one to arrive, it could be a couple of weeks - bummer. I think I talk about cooking in our kitchen EVERY SINGLE DAY! We are just completely burnt-out on eating out for every meal. We have new wishbone chairs arriving tomorrow and I ordered a kitchen table. I was planning to get a tulip table all along, and then at the last minute I changed my mind for a beautiful table from Crate and Barrel. I have this weird tendency of changing my mind about things at the very last minute and then going in a completely different direction, that's what happened with the leopard stair carpet and now our kitchen table. The table will be delivered next week and I cannot wait to share it with you. It's so pretty, I know that's an odd description for a kitchen table, but in my opinion it's pretty. You'll see! 

This week I've been cleaning and moving stuff up from the basement. Today I was burning a candle - from a local candle shop 5B & Co. - called 'Home is Where the Heart is' and I had Madeleiene Peyroux on Pandora all day long as I hung all of our artwork. I have a few empty walls, as I want to grow into our home with new pieces that have special meaning to us. I've wanted a sign from House of Belonging for sometime now and I have a wall in the dining room just waiting for the perfect one to grace the walls of our home. The area to the right of the TV needs something and I'm going to give this a whirl - DIY Woven Wall Hanging by Also, I have a Pink Poodle print that I need to get framed. I shared it on Instagram here. We still have a lot of boxes in the basement and some are just too heavy for me to move up, so I'm waiting for Ry to help this weekend. I've been trying to find our fuzzy blankets, pillows, and decorative trays all week. I'm guessing they'll show up this weekend. 

Today I'm sharing a bunch of random progress photos of our home. If you missed the before photos of our house you can check them out here. Talk about a transformation! Once the house is completely finished I'm going to pull out my nice camera and do a Home Tour post with all the BEFORE + AFTERS! 

The kitchen from dark to light! 

The master bedroom & bathroom. 

The main level. 

The guest bedroom. I'm trying not to put too many holes in the walls upstairs, as I'm looking forward to re-doing the rooms for our future babies. 

The office's pink closet doors.

So that's what we've got so far. We have plenty more home to-dos for the upcoming weekend, but one thing we haven't had lately is time to relax and spend quality time together. We have both added that to our weekend agenda!
