I have some exciting news - after only 2.5 years here, we're moving! 😱🏠 The best way to describe it would be bittersweet, Doug accepted a new position with his company and we're relocating closer to Chicago. πŸ’•Check out the listing and photos of our completely finished home in the latest post! ➑️ @whitehouseblackshutters #whbsgrayhouse I can't wait to share more details with you on where we're headed!!

Behind every clean room on Instagram is a pile of rogue socks, bouncy balls, and other miscellaneous crap. πŸ˜˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ #reallife #whbsgrayhouse Finishing this room off and taking pictures! Each home is a constant work in progress, it's easy to forget that. πŸ’• #whbsfamroom

Congratulations, @saraschweinsberg & @chop12345_official! πŸ’• You know it's a good wedding when you're having so much fun, you forget to take pictures!! ☺️ #happilyeverschweinsberg

Doug and I took the whole crew out to the ballgame! βšΎοΈβ€οΈπŸ»πŸ’™#FlyTheW #gocubsgo #CubsWin

Fresh mulch, new door, and peonies ready to pop! #homesweethome 🏑 I can't get over how different it looks from when we moved in! #whbsgrayhouse

I am so grateful for these kids who call me mom. Blessed and humbled that I was even given this job! Happy Mother's Day to all you sweet ladies who give of yourselves. πŸ’•To the grandmas, aunts, Godmothers, moms-to-be, moms of babies in heaven, future moms, moms grieving, and those who love with a motherly heart, we hold you all in our hearts and prayers! πŸ’

#tbt to a few weeks ago when this table wasn't filled with tools, bags of supplies, dust, and other construction stuffs. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ Foyer is almost done, downstairs bathroom is really coming along!! I'll add some updates to my story. #whbsgrayhouse

#fiddleleaffig friends! I've been looking for years and finally found one! Any tips for keeping this baby alive? Can I take some bottom leafs off? Or the brown dried things near the leaves? 🌱🌿 I've had a good streak with my current succulents, snake plants, and a philodendron. Hoping to keep this no dead plants streak going! πŸ˜‚πŸ™…πŸ½πŸ’€ #whbsplantlady #whbsgrayhouse

Last weekend we installed a new door. I loved the bright turquoise, but was ready to try something new. (Swipe left to see the before!) what do you think?? 😍 Next up is some landscaping cleanup. #whbsgrayhouse

Today I'm finishing up the details on our kids' bathroom and taking photos. I struggled to find the right piece for this space and spotted this shelf online at @michaelsstores. 😍 it was a beautiful, rustic blue color and I painted it to match this room. I might grab another for the downstairs bathroom! #michaelsmakers #spottedatmichaels

Windows open, listening to birds, and enjoying the sweet smell of apple blossoms as we wash dishes. 😌 If you've been hibernating all winter like us, you know how this feels!!! πŸ’• #whbskitchen #whbsgrayhouse Thank you for your sweet words from yesterday's kitchen update!

Progress!! The kitchen is almost done but we're still working on it. This morning I thought "ugh, will this ever look good enough to post?!" (swipe to see the #reallife picture from this morning). I got to work cleaning, and here we are. πŸ‘πŸΌ Electric is moved and pendants are waiting for the drywall to be patched, swipe to see a closeup. But otherwise we just need to mop and clean it! Oh and put away all our supplies... πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ #whbsgrayhouse #whbskitchen
