I have had lots of people asking what our new house will look like so its time for an update! It is currently being dry wall taped and is supposed to be done some time in September. The new house is around 1,000 square feet bigger than our current home and it is on a pie shaped lot so our back yard is nice and big! The main floor is very open with a flex room right by the front door, upstairs has 4 bedrooms with a bonus room.
Floor plan for the main floor:
Floor plan for upstairs:
These are the colors I chose for the outside of our home. The grey color to the bottom right is our siding color, the white on the left is our trim color, and the blue on the right that is touching the grey and white will be the colour of the door.
And this is a close up of the rock that goes around our garage as well as our fireplace in the living room.
This is the progress of the outside. The trim around the windows still needs to be made white but other than that it is finished.
For the kitchen we are going for a bright, clean and airy feel. We decided on white cabinets, white subway tile for a backsplash with darker grout, light white/grey granite and gold hardware. Here where my inspiration photos:

We chose these gold cup pulls for all the drawers in the kitchen and knobs for all the cupboard doors.
In our washroom upstairs the spare bathroom will have white cabinets but in the master bathroom we wanted a grey cabinet so we picked this colour below. The granite will be the same as the photos below for both the bathrooms upstairs.
The tile that will be in the back entry just off of the garage and in our bathrooms will be this medium grey tone.
This is a photo of our hardwood colour and our carpet is the lower square of carpet.
Our new wall colour is called Smoky and this is it held up to our current wall colour. Similar just lighter.
That’s all for now! I will keep you updated, hopefully the cupboards and fun stuff start going in soon!
I have been making all my own baby food for Hendrix since he started eating solid food. We chose to do baby led weaning from day one which meant it was nice to have some softer healthy foods in the freezer that we could just pull out in the morning and put in the diaper bag. I made these quinoa bites a few months ago and have had endless amounts of mommies asking me for the recipe. I am not much of a cook so it is shocking I am making a post on food so bare with me!
You will need:
2 cups cooked Quinoa
1/2 cup Cheese
1/4 cup Baby oatmeal
1. Make the quinoa as directed on the packaging.
2. While the quinoa is cooking I pureed spinach and kale together.
3. Once the quinoa is cooked and ready add in cheese, baby oatmeal (acts as bread crumbs but adds extra iron), kale and spinach.
4. Mix all together and make them into small patties.
5. Fry them on each side just so they stick together and don’t fall apart.
6. Let them sit until they are cool enough to put into a ziplock bag into the freezer.
Babies LOVE these and they are amazing because they are packed full of nutrients and you don’t have to worry about keeping them refrigerated if you are out.
