Last blog post {The house is complete & we aren't newlyweds anymore}

Well, I knew this time would come and that's why I started a new blog, "The Simmons' Blessed Nest" before Cooper was born. I knew we (Clay and I) were approaching that transistion from newlyweds to crazy parenthood life and thought it would be fun to end "The Newlywed Diaries" blog with a few final pictures of the house. We worked so hard on the house and feel extremely blessed everyday to be living and loving in it with our son! Here are a few pictures of the finished product. We still need to complete the bathroom aka paint and put up our open shelves in the kitchen. We chose to use the open shelves instead of having top cabinets. Also, the bedroom was FULL of Cooper's Christmas loot so there isn't a picture included in this post. I'll have to add pictures of it on my other blog.My camera is MIA right now so I took them with my camera phone around Christmastime...all signs that I have a newborn son, huh? Anyways, I was hoping to have the side-by-side pictures of each room, but without my camera, I couldn't! Sad day...but lucky for us, it is very easy to see the improvement through any type of picture =) My new blog is and we would love for you to share in our journey of parenthood through it. Enjoy...

This is a view from the living room into the kitchen (just need to add our shelves above the counter)

 I can't wait to have a porch on the side of the house! I can see many of Cooper's parties being held on the porch =)
