Thoughts for Thursday: I'm Back!

Hi Friends!  I am finally back!  It's been almost a month since I've been without a computer, which is probably the longest I've gone since I got my first computer in college, which was a long time ago.  I feel like I have so many things to update you on but I'm going to try to split it up into a few posts.

First things first if you follow me on Instagram (@eastcoastnat) then you know our renovations were finished last Friday!!  We officially moved back into our house on Saturday and spent our first night at home.  It was so nice to be home and have (most of) the renovation completed.   I added a few photos below but I promise to be back with a full detailed kitchen post with all our sources and how we went about the whole process.

Here is my new kitchen and dining room!!

Family room with shiplap over the fireplace and to the left is the sunroom that we opened up and made part of our the house.  The light is a little crooked so our electrician will be back to look at it next week, hoping it's an easy fix.

Old laundry room turned mudroom! Our contractor needs to come back and add the hooks and a few finishing touches but I am over the moon about having a room to dump all our stuff in.

This is our open pantry which is a still a huge work in progress as I figure out how to store food and keep it looking pretty at the same time.

We painted the interior and exterior of our front door black and I'm loving the extra detail it gives to our neutral space.

The kids are on spring break this week and we have had the best weather!! I just hope it stays like this for the rest of April and May because it's keeping us all in a good mood.

I also got a new Mac Computer! I've been a PC girl ever since college so this is a big change for me.  I'm still learning all the little ins and outs so bear with me as I get acquainted with it.  If you have any tips or tricks to getting to know a Mac let me know!

I'm so happy to be back and hope to have my posting back on schedule along with catching up on everyone's blogs and lives.

Happy Thursday Friends!

  2. You're house is amazing! I have owned a mac for years. It's the easiest computer to use ever. You should have no problems.

  3. Your house looks so amazing! That is seriously my dream kitchen! I can't wait to read your full post about your renovations. So glad you're back! You will love your mac! It takes a while to get used to, but there are so many fun tricks and you can use all your apps, itunes, photos from your phone (if you have an iphone and cloud) etc. which is nice!

  4. Looks amazing!!! Can't wait for all the details! We have a huge reno coming up in a few years (it will take us that long to figure out what we want - how do you decide?!?). Welcome to the Mac world :) it may sound silly but the classes at the Apple Store are reallllly helpful!! I did those (with a bunch of grandmas) when we first got ours.

  5. It's good to have you back, your blog is one of my favorites to read!

  6. Everything looks SO good. And luxurious! I am also so jealous of your weather. Enjoy! We'd moved from DC 2 years in small part b/c we were utterly fed up with the weather. And now her I am on the west coast and its 40 deg and snowing here today. I could scream!

  7. LOVE your renovations. It's like my pinterest boards come to life! Black front door in foyer is a must for our next house!

  8. Your house looks AH-MAZING. Truly incredible!! You did such a great job! I can't wait to see more!
