What Would You Do and a Reminder

We met with our builder today.

Spent much time tweaking the plans and trying to figure out

how to make the other bathrooms larger.

I am so used to very spacious bathrooms. All of my bathrooms have enough space

for a chair and a piece of furniture! But alas, I have to remember I am downsizing!!!

I wanted each bedroom to have it’s own bathroom, but that means smaller bathrooms,

with the exception of the master bathroom.

I can have separate bathrooms with each having  one sink, not two as they are here.

OR, I can combine the bathrooms to make one large one, and the two bedrooms

would have to share!

So….what would you do? …. and please read down to the bottom of the post for a Reminder

of a great giveaway!.

Below is the Master Bathroom….

This Week’s Happenings

This week’s happenings have been a whole lot of packing and moving.

I am sure you are not surprised!

Yesterday was our Anniversary.

I was surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers

that my hubby managed to sneak in without my knowledge

and surprised me with them when I walked into the kitchen early in the morning.

I posted it on Instagram/Housepitality Designs

We are two crazy people trying to move our things into the rental house

that going forward I shall call the Berry Patch House.

Packing Up the House Tips & A Giveaway Announcement

I have mentioned previously that my posts will be a bit sparse as I am totally immersed

in packing up the house.

The more I pack, the more there is to pack!

I do most of the packing. My hubby takes care of the garage and attic and his office.

Which is quite an undertaking.  He is making many trips back and forth to the rental.

I have packed up for so many moves . . . Building the new house will be our 7th house.

We plan on this house being our last one till the Assisted Living home!! 

But, you just never know!

 For many of those house moves, we have had to move twice

into a rental until the house was built.

It’s a Patriotic themed white Christmas tree.

I am partnering with Tree Classics to bring you the Patriotic Fridays with Tree Classics Blog Hop.

This Blog Hop features a white Christmas tree that we have decorated
