There are a lot of changes happening in the Watson house.

We have since we got married lived in an itty bitty 400 square foot apartment. It is darling, but we have been busting at the seams far before Baby W came into the picture! For sometime we have been praying about moving our sweet family. Should we move to another apartment, and at what price range did we feel comfortable. With a lot of school loan debt between the both of us, we really wanted to make a smart decision for our futures not just an easy decision for right now.

God's plan was far bigger then we ever could of imagined ...

We have been blessed with a wonderful 3 bedroom, 1 bath home close to our parents. It needed and still needs a lot of work, but it is soooo exciting to be moving into our very first HOME!!!!!!

Here are a few cell phone photos because I just can't wait any longer. :) I promise to get some much nicer ones soon though.

This is the kitchen from the living room.
-- the stove is being replaced, and the track lighting is already gone. There use to be a terribly ugly fruit wall paper trim that is already gone as well. LOL
Grandpa Watson is hard at work changing out the light above the sink ... I would love to paint the cabinets and change the hardware, but it will be a process.

This is the bathroom. :)
When you walk in the tub is on the right, and further up is the vanity and toilet.
We have big plans to paint, change the window treatments, and add a dark wood "closet" for storage.

The whole house except bathroom and kitchen have the original hardwood floors.
Soon Grandpa Holschen will be resanding them and restaining them. It will make the whole house look brand new!!
This room is our master. I plan to change the window treatments, purchase new bedroom furniture and paint!!! Hubs and I are soooo excited!!!!!!!!

Here is Baby W's Room!!!
We already know where exactly we want each piece of furniture, even though we have no furniture bought! Being in the room evokes such happiness as in a few months we will be bringing home a sweet baby to live in the space.
David and I know how the nursery will look if Baby W is a girl or a boy!!! {I have been planning my painting projects for MONTHS now}

This is the soon to be CHRISTINA STUDIO DESIGNS office!!!!!!
We plan to paint add a beautiful desk {hopefully handbuilt by Grandpa Holschen} some gorgeous book shelves, nice seating for clients, and of course a tv for all my viewing pleasure. This room is directly across from Baby W's room. The rooms actually share a long closet so while baby is napping I can see into the bedroom. :)

So needless to say, WE ARE SO BLESSED!!
The house is more then we ever could of imagined, and we are beyond excited.

I promise to keep you updated with before and after photos as I don't doubt the house is going to go through MAJOR renovations over the next few months. If all goes well we will be moving in end of April to the beginning of May. YAY!!!!!!!

A very very very very very special thank you to our family, and dear friends who have put their blood, sweat and tears into the house so far. There are just too many people to name, but please know David and I appreciate ALL of you, and as soon as we can we will have everyone over for a very yummy meal!!!!!


  1. I can not wait to see what you do with this new house. I know you will make it a home in no time at all.

    I love you ALL
