I have so many words for this week! A few of them are...frustrating, defeating, exhausting and hope. I have been fighting the worst chest cold I can ever remember having. It has made me so weak and my body feeling so heavy! Fever, chills, coughing, no voice to sounding like a man. We didn't pass our inspection for occupancy yesterday for RIDICULOUS reasons, yet frustrating ones that prayerfully can be done. So hopefully we can get the items fixed and we will try and pass next week😡😤🙄 Trying hard to see the positive and giving God room to work. I've really needed to nest, so when Walmart had some big mums on clearance part of me, thought no, not until we move in but the other part needed to do this, for my sanity so that I could start making a home for my family. It's been a long road and we are almost to the finish line. Praying we get there in one piece and able to stand up straight.

This bloomin bathroom... We really need to make a decision 🤔🤦🏼♀️
I’m not sure what I was thinking... I have no idea what I’m doing. Somebody help me 🙈 I’ve taken the fabric off the seat and now I have this ☝🏼 It’s very old and I don’t want to break it 😆🙈
I bought more frames so I’ve been faffing with the shelves whilst waiting and hoping that the curry stain comes out of our worktops 😩
Today was a big day! We closed on the lot purchase and signed all our construction loan paperwork! Whoop! Whoop! 🙌🏼 So...in honor of that, I thought I would join the fun of #girlbehindthesquare
and tell you a little about my fabulous family since we have had so many new people begin to follow our journey! I’m Jennifer and my husband, Bobby and I will celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary this December! We have 3 great kiddos, Hayden (20), Kaylee (18) and our surprise blessing Kendall (7). Hayden and Kaylee are both off doing their own thing in college and can’t believe that we waited till they left the house to build our dream home! 🤦🏻♀️ I’ve promised them both that they will have a fabulous space to come home to though! I work full time as regional business manger for a medical device company. I manage a great team of folks all across the southeastern US. My honey works at the private school as the Director of Facilities that my daughter attends and I swear he has Superman capabilities with all he manages as I travel for work! We are so excited to be building our dream home on our almost 5 acres in Brandon, MS! Fingers crossed that dirt work begins soon on the house pad and building of the pond! #modernfarmhouse #custombuild #newconstruction #familyadventure #makingahouseourhome
Holes are filled and I’ve just started waxing... I wish the spare room would magically decorate itself so I actually had somewhere to put it 🙈 I’m ticking jobs off in completely the wrong order but sometimes you just don’t want to do what you’re suppose to do, right?! 🤷🏼♀️
9.10.18 Pre-drywall walkthrough... the best is yet to come!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this colour is 😌👌🏼 I cant wait to get it on the wall - eeek!! 😬 It’s been colour matched by @decoratingcentreonline
(thank you for recommending @shoestring_renovation
!) and I am SO flippin happy with it! It arrived super quickly too and I didn’t pay for any fancy delivery 👏🏼 Oh... and the dressing table that the paint is sat on - just 👌🏼😍 (The plant is unnecessary and was just placed there to make my picture look better 😆🙈)
Another frame up ✔️ We got given the original plans for the house when we moved in so we decided they should be on the wall 👌🏼
Love my little dressing room, a year ago when we moved in this was lilac with so many holes and plugs stuck in the wall, the skirting boards didn't match and the floor wasn't laid right. Now it's all done and I love it. My latest print from @desenio
went up last night to finish it off

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! .
No, not pumpkins and fall decor (although I do ❤️that!) It’s college football season!!! 🏈🏈🏈
We are huge college football fans! #HailState
and SEC football!! So of course in the design of our house, a fabulous outdoor space to watch those night fall games was a must! Our architect designed our outdoor living space to be similar to the pic above! Main difference is we will have a vaulted roof line. I can foresee many hours of time around a fire, with football, food and friends/family! What are some of your favorite fall activities? Photo creds: @hpzplans

Still my favourite room in the house 👌 we are at a standstill with any decorating/making the house homely, why do we all rely on this thing called money? 😫 hoping in the next couple of weeks we will be back on it and making it more homely and adding all those little touches 🏡
Decided to #selfie
my leftover fish tacos for #tacotuesday
and because I love them so much they deserve a repeat post😋
Did not expect a photobomb from my typically camera shy husband 🤷🏼♀️
Happy Taco Tuesday! 🌮 Meal plan friendly and delicious are my 2 favorite things 👍🏼
Am I the only one that moves their furniture and decor around all the time? I am pretty sure I drive my husband crazy with my constant decor change ups, but I can’t help it! If there is a better place for something, how will I know if I don’t try it? Especially with our current remodel, I feel like nothing has a place. Sharing what our space used to look like before new doors, mirrors, ceiling overhaul. I can’t wait to show you the end result in a couple months! Linking most of the exact items for y’all or ones that are similar on my blog. Link in my bio!
New frame on the wall. I bloomin love TK Maxx - it’s almost my second home 🏡 😌
Asleep in her crib! She's asleep in her crib!
Moms everywhere understand my excitement at this simple thing. We're working on transitioning #jcottprincess2
from a pack n play in our room to a crib in her room. This is a huge first step, especially since she's never been big on naps.
Can I get an amen?! 🙌😍 #growingupsofast #makingahouseourhome #sleepbabysleep
Took a stroll (albeit a hot stroll) on the property today that will one day hold our home. Praying through some truths that our pastor spoke about today. Obedience. Taking steps of faith. Knowing where your treasure lies. I’m quickly discovering with this house building process that there is a fine line between excitement and obsession. Full transparency here - there have been several mornings where I have gotten up for my quiet time but found myself scrolling thru IG or Pinterest to look at design ideas and buildings. It’s so much fun to dream! BUT...when that takes the place of my time with the Father, priorities shift and become out of line. Praying today for a realignment of of my heart, for God to go before us in this process and for this land to Honor Him! #beautifulland #nofilter #newconstruction #newbuild #customhome #modernfarmhouse #mshomes #makingahouseourhome
I started sanding this today... I HATE sanding 😑 That is all ✋🏼
