We only have street parking in front of our house, which made it very difficult to build our van in front of our house. A really gracious friend decided generously allowed us to take over their backyard for two months. They endured annoying power tools on weekends while I enjoyed loving their pups. .
We are forever grateful Ryan and Katie! And thank you to all of our friends who shared their space with us, and helped us plan and build our home! And thank YOU all for following along on our adventure!
Can not wait until we finish off his room, such a slow process trying to take care of a bub, plus the house, trying to accomodate for each stage that he is at in his developement..and trying to finish off the house. How long did it take you guys to finish off your first home inc fully decorating? @shannnnaa @lolliliving @kmartaus @tommeetippeeaustralia
#copied Everything that comes from God, including marriage, is good (James 1:17), however each persons experience differs based on their understanding and the effort they put into their home. Some will say marriage is a necessary evil or a bad thing because of what they’ve seen or experienced. While others will say marriage is one of the best things that ever happened to them in this life!
As far as the Creator is concerned, marriage will always be good, the bad experiences of some notwithstanding. As long as we put the tools He has given to us, to work, it will be a pleasant journey. The quality of any relationship or marriage is determined by the quality of the individuals in it. If you want an A class marriage, you must be an A class individual. Want a top notch marriage/family? It starts with you!
Everything about a marriage rises and falls on the individuals in it. God gives us more than enough grace but we must be willing to put that grace to work. Don’t just pray for an outstanding family life, be willing to do what it takes to bring the treasures in that relationship out, and pray that your spouse or potential spouse is willing and ready to do the same. Remember it’s not about perfection but a willingness to grow and change for the better!
As a single lady or gentleman, don’t attach yourself to anyone who doesn’t have the same view of marriage as you do. As a married person, let God help you remain committed to doing your part to see a change. If you fell you’re at your wits end, prayerfully seek for the counseling you need! Whatever happens, know that the good in any marriage doesn’t come to life by wishing, for it but by working (this includes prayer) for it! - Kemi Oyedepo #marriage#light#wisdom#marriage#marriagetips#relationshipsmatter#marriageandtheworkingwoman#buildingahome#nigerianwomendiary#foodforthought#9jamomsknow#yummymummy#lagosmums#talesbymummies#crisisproofyourfamily#marriagetips#relationshipandi
We spent our Valentine’s Day cozied up in the corner of @barnesandnoble reading home design/decor books (they had a surprisingly limited selection, btw). We picked up this magical, smart and funny guide: Building Your Home by @simply.kristina.leigh ... so naturally, I posed it in our apartment’s plant corner for a glamour shot✨
If anyone sees this, please send advice! We need all of the homebuilding tips we can get!
Been wondering what to do with these old crates so made them our new bedside tables (awaiting lamps)! If you follow my other account @amummoreordinary you'll know what side is mine 😆 #travelobsession#nextfivetripsalreadyplanned
Tiles may have been put in the wrong room but i’m not sad about it because now it means I get to have these tiles in both the ensuite and the main bathroom.......This wall was meant to be a plain white subway tile but marble is my favourite so i don’t mind that we get to have it as the feature wall in both rooms now! ......If this is the worst thing to happen in our build (other than one window breaking) then i think we are lucky! #buildingwithtofu#buildingahome#hamptonshome
other than the baby’s room, I also really want to focus on the study finishes so it’s close to ready when we move in! we are painting our theatre black but I really love this dark wall to go with our polished concrete floors in the study 🤔 if anyone has any other study inspo please tag me or should we just stick to an all white study!

Wow. What a difference new carpet and a fresh coat of paint makes. All 3 bedrooms upstairs have been updated and look amazing. Thank you to our family friend carpet installers and to my hubby for all of the hard work that has been put in. #nesting#babyboyroom#lovetheupdates#buildingahome
Jeremy made this sliding barn door using old floor boards from a Wisconsin barn that nearly burnt down. We used this beautiful hardware given to us by @nationalhrdware 😍 We move in to our new home in a just a couple of weeks!!! Make sure you keep up with stories for more peeks at the new house soon. We’re almost to the finish line! 🏡#newconstruction#homebuild#slidingbarndoor#farmhousestyle
After living in numerous rented accommodations since i was 16 and raising a family of 3 along the way, We have finally decided its time to become responsible adults and have brought our 1st home !
This ticked a lot of boxes on our " what we want in a house" list, It needs lots of tlc and some serious renovation to make it into a " family home" but thankfully instagram offers plenty of ideas and help ( and the husband isn't afraid of a hammer and paintbrush 😂) . . . . .
