The Valley of the Sun

So, here's our new house! Sorry it's taken me so long to all of you who've been asking to see pictures. Of course, it's still empty so you'll have to use some imagination. We close on the 15th and all our stuff will be delivered the 18th.



The formal living room:

The dining room:
The office:


The kitchen:


The family room:The laundry room:
The loft (sorry it's a bad pic):One of the kids bedrooms:
Kids bathroom:


Master bedroom:
Master bath:
Backyard (notice the mountain view!):



I'll be sure to post more when I've decorated a little bit. Those of you who know me best know that I've already been unable to sleep most nights trying to figure out how I want to do everything!

Wait, your master bedroom has a fireplace!?! That is so cool. So great to know you guys are getting settled. Have fun in the sun!

Kendra said...

So beautiful! I had no idea this was even in the works! More than one bathroom?! Now that's just rediculous!

I can't wait to see all the after pictures...I love that you also love color on the walls, so I will be anxiously awaiting all those pics! My most coveted room is your laundry room...nice long counter and a sink, wow! Fun stairwell, too. Congrats.

Oh yeah, and the fireplace is stinkin' hilarious. Do you ever feel cold enough in Phoenix to even want to LOOK at a fire? I think maybe a mini iceberg would be better. You could imagine yourself to a cooler place.

In December, you'll have to pump the AC really good for a few days and enjoy your fireplace! It's beautiful Cass! I'm so excited for you and your NEW house! We are sharing a move in date. I'm doing the same thing, decorating in my head, I wake up at 4am to go to the bathroom and can't go back to sleep because I'm walking through the new house in my head. So much fun! I'm a little worried about how to manage all the unpacking with THREE kids underfoot, but at least they will be in school some of the time. Love you and can't wait to see more pics!

Congrats on the new house. It's beautiful, but I'm not sure if you are going to need the fireplace, let alone two. Ben forwarded your email to me announcing the move. We have just recently moved and now live near Mike. We are starting to play tennis again. Good luck in PHX. Don't forget your sunblock. Check out what we are up to at www.pjsmithfamily.blogspot.com

Gorgeous -- well, it will be when you are done with it I'm sure. I love that you have two fireplaces... in AZ... ha! Hope you get a day cold enough to use it. I'm sure you are all so excited - have fun!

Shannon said...

Bonnie and Brian Wayne said...

Well, I guess we have been out of it. Brian has been talking about going up to visit you guys for the past 3 months! We are too late, which is sad. I LOVE your new house. I bet you will make it SO cute knowing you. How do you like your ward there? We will miss knowing you are in our neck of the woods. I would love to hear the whole story soon of leaving Kohls, etc. Good luck in your new house!

Natalie said...

CASSSS!!!! I can seriously hear your sighs of relief all the way here in Dallas! THE SUN!!!! The brand NEW house! AHHHHH!!! :)

I am so excited for you guys! The other great thing is that some of our good friends from Houston are moving there in a month or so. I don't know where exactly yet, but I will find out. Can't wait to chat!

Gee, as a kid I tried Dog food to see how it tasted. I guess I should have become a connoisseur. Way to go ALPO, congratulations on the move, the house is beautiful and we love you blog page, we look forward to seeing what your family is up to.
Stay cool, I here the heat can be "RUFF" out there.

Amanda said...

I have to say I am so jealous - but I bet you're really missing your house in Milwaukee right now (hahaha). Well, missy - I miss you tons and wish I could have been your visiting teacher just a little bit longer. But life has a way of taking us places at random times, right? You guys look so happy. Call me sometime. Love you!
