GO  ILLINI... GO St. Louis Cardinals.. GO ILL_INI


We both grew up in IL and met at the University of IL, and  moved to Charlotte, NC from St. Louis in June 2007. So far we  are loving life in the Carolinas!


We just finished building our first home and just moved in May 08. We are still getting settled but here are a few pictures for now! 


Here is our first home!



Front and back of our new home!

Now that we are finally moved in and getting settled here are some new pictures:

The Great Room and Dining area

The Paint color is Restoration Hardwares Cappacino 

 : haha DH was in the way



The Kitchen is open to the great room/ dining area

The Butlers Pantry leads to the Dining   Room:

I love the wine fridge!


The Dining Room is currently empty. Dining Room furniture is on our list, among other things! The Paint color is Restoration Hardware's " Chocolate"
