First Night at The Big Bah-Nilla


We spent our first night in the Big Bah-Nilla last night... there is much unpacking left to do... but, we are in!  I still don't know exactly where my camera stuff is, so I'm still using my phone.  The kitchen is more or less finished.  But, there are a few other ongoing projects.  (kitchen before here)


Just had to share a couple of bright spots in my week that arrived via texts!  Little B was playing dress up... She is such a doll!!  Her Noni is ready for a day of play, too!!  LOL!  I'm taking a quick break this morning to say hello... and I hope to return soon... We have listed and gotten a contract on The Weekender (the culprit in this move... who knew three years of weekends would lead to a new address?).  I will tell you I am TIRED of getting houses ready to put on the market and the whole process... Looks like we will be closing on it two weeks from today (barring any odd things like with our other house).  So, there is MORE PACKING and MOVING of stuff in the works... We will be pressing hard for these two weeks.. then, I am going to take. my. time. and get back to some of my normal activities... blog reading for one!  ;)  I've missed my friends. 


Until then, I'll be concentrating as hard as my Little Men (now known as The Big Boys!!  Oh, I'm missing them!) on getting the have-tos done!!  I hope all of you are finally enjoying some beautiful spring weather and good times!!  It has been a roller coaster year so far!  blessings to all ~ tanna

Dear Tanna, It is wonderful to hear from you and know that all is well and moving along.
It has been a roller-coaster year though we are not alone in this ride.
I am sure you are aching to be with your beautiful grandchildren and have some playtime. It will be fun.
The kitchen looks very nice.
Take your time and have a very beautiful weekend.
Blessings dear. Catherine xo

So good to see you post again. I was thinking about you the other day. The kitchen is beautiful. You must be exhausted. Good times with the grand babies coming soon and a big rest

podso said...

So nice to "see" you! The kitchen looks wonderful--much improved. When it rains it pours I guess, for you in the moving department. So glad your places have sold. Soon it will be behind you and you can enjoy your new nest and rest! The little guys are growing up and what a cutie is your Little B !!! Don't work too hard! Miss you !

here's to the day (soon!) when you can sit back & enjoy the abundant fruits of your labor, Tanna!

I think I can speak for us all...we've missed you :)

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Love your kitchen. Isn't it so much fun unpacking, I know it is exhausting but the end result is worthwhile. Best of luck to you! Hope you enjoyed your grandchildren.

TexWisGirl said...

i took a look at your weekender! i think i want to live there! okay, no, i'm not gonna move, but... good luck!

Pammy Sue said...

Your kitchen looks so much better than it did! VERY nice! You must be exhausted, girl. Wishing you the energy you need, plus a little more, and a quick two weeks. I miss you too. Glad you checked in.

Donna said...

Hi. I have missed your sweet voice and pretty things.

Shug said...

What a big difference and might I say, your kitchen is beautiful. It's amazing the difference that the white cabinets have made, and your new addition worked out very well.
Enjoy those babies....

Betsy Brock said...

Beautiful kitchen! Really cute grands! :)

Christine said...

What a beautiful kitchen!
Nothing like The Brick Street Old Lady. But I love it!

I have missed you and I haven't been around much either.
Looking forward to seeing more, of the grands that is (and of your new home).

You've been missed sweet friend. So glad to see your post. :)

Your new place is awesome. Sending prayers your way that all will go well with the closing.

Sending you hugs and wishing you many, many blessings.

Amanda said...

Big Bah-Nilla looks like she needs some big boys to come and color her full of new memories! The kitchen looks fantastic! Can't wait to see more of the "reveal." :-)

Laura at Beehive Rugs said...

Your kitchen looks wonderful!! So glad you are in and hoping all goes well with selling the other house so you can slow down a bit. Love the pictures of the kids! Love your new stove. Lots of happy memories will be happening there!!

Sandy said...

It's hard to believe that's the same kitchen. Really beautiful. I know you and your husband will come to love this house in time. Can't wait til you do a walk through of each room. I love seeing where my blogger friends live. It's the next best thing to actually getting to visit face to face.
I have certainly missed your more frequent posts and beautiful needlework.
Your grandchildren are all so darling and I love seeing their sweet faces gracing your blog.
Have a good weekend and I hope you get a lot done in these next few weeks as you unpack and arrange your new home.
Love you!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi, Welcome Back... I can only imagine how hard it has been MOVING.... There's nothing harder--but when it's all said and done, you will LOVE it... So --you will be on a golf course? Are you still in Tyler --or moving TO Tyler? I remember that you said you lived in Tyler. I was in the Houston area for 12 yrs -but we are now on the golf course in Fairfield Glade, TN. BUT--we do not play golf!!!!! ha

Love your kitchen. Can't wait to see the rest of the house once you get it all presentable...

The grandchildren are ADORABLE.... Enjoy them NOW since they do grow up so very very fast.

Hugs,
Betsy

Your new kitchen looks beautiful! I remember my last move after living 25 years in the same house. I don't believe I'm up to doing it again. Wishing you much joy in your new home.

Betty@SouthernGrace said...

It looks great, Tanna.......and the stove...the stove....sigh :) It's funny, I woke up thinking about you this morning and wondering how the kitchen was coming. lol

Judy S. said...

I'd just been thinking about you this week and wondering how things were going. Looks like you've worked your magic on the new place; hope the last few details go smoothly! Best wishes in your new home!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Hi Tanna, it's good to see your post! Your new kitchen is beautiful and the new stove is a dream! I wish you much joy in this new home! Hope all goes well with the sale of the other house.

The boys are so cute and really growing!

Have a lovely weekend!

steph said...

so glad to hear that you might be close to being settled!!! wonderful noni photos!!!!!

kathy b said...

Good to hear from you Tanna! I've been hoping things were not too nuts for you. LOVE the kitchen. love the kids:)

Debbie said...

It was wonderful to look on my sideboard and see a post from you!


I love the Ba Nilla kitchen makeover in the biggest way. The two different tone effect on the upper and lower cabinets looks amazing. I'm now wishing that I had done that here. (Wouldn't dare mention it to my husband right now. I don't want to give him a case of hives or something.)

I wish you could have seen my faced when I saw your little Dress Up. She looks just like a doll, and the little men are as cute as ever.

Oh, how I want my life to feel normal, too.

karen said...

unpacking is way more fun than packing so have fun! Congrats on being moved in :)

Amy at love made my home said...

I'm so glad that you have moved in and that you have been having fun too! Hope that the other house goes well and that you have a great week. xx

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Wow! What a difference in the kitchen. You did a great job! Which is why you do what you do. You definitely have an eye for updates. Love to see the grandkiddos having fun -- especially concentrating so hard on cutting. Sweet. Have a wonderful week. Tammy

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

What a wonderful transition for your kitchen! LOVE IT! I have not blogged or had time for reading blogs in weeks and MISS IT!

Thinking of you as you get it all done!!!! CUTE GRANDS! SO SO cute!

Janette's Sage/Simply Your Decor said...

You know what they say about roller coasters? Just throw up your hands and enjoy the ride. I so understand it...that was 2013 for me.
Love the kitchen, and the grands are precious.

Tricia Buice said...

You've made some wonderful progress Tanna! We expect great things from that gorgeous kitchen. Hope all is well and know that you have been missed. I'm sure you are anxious to get-er-done and get back to the normal things. Hope that is soon! Have a wonderful mother's day

From the Kitchen said...

I like the white cabinets much better! Hoping your next closing is a smooth one. It sounds like you need a little time off with the "Big Boys" and the "Little Girl" to perk you up.

Best,
Bonnie

Pondside said...

The kitchen looks great!
We are still in the 'showings' stage with Pondside, and I dare not look too hard for a new place. I've already gone through the heartache of finding a perfect replacement, only to have it sold before we could get a bid in.
It's all such a lot of bother!

Susan Sevig said...

Lovely new kitchen. I am sure you will call this home before long and can't imagine when you never lived there. Love those little extensions of you...those grandkids. Many blessings to you in your new home.

Rose said...

So happy for you; the kitchen looks great. I have been tempted to paint my cabinets but think it's such a big task I am not sure I am ready for it. Yours look fabulous. Glad you have had "Grand" time :)

Catherine said...

Dear Tanna, Stopping by to wish you a very happy and blessed Mother's Day. Catherine xo

Vicki Boster said...

Tanna- what an adventure this has been for you!! I'm sure you can't wait to finally be all settled in-- your new house looks wonderful!

I really can't believe how much your babes have grown-- they are so adorable!
Vicki

Linda said...

A lovely series of photos!

Nancy's Notes said...

Tanna, I've been wondering where you've been! I lost my blog roll, another story!I had to go looking for my friend! So happy you are in your home now, packing and unpacking, is the pits! Our house in on the market too, hope we get a contract soon. Miss you!
Hugs,
Nancy


Kerin said...

Hi friend.
Great job on the kitchen renovation. Fun stuff!!
Best of luck with getting your other property sold and closed as well.
It's been a very busy, and crazy and wonky year so far.... to be sure.

Smiles :)

The room looks great. Your kids are looking so cute and doing their work very beautifully with concentration.

Tricia Buice said...

All right - I think I've left you alone long enough to unpack and get situated - we miss you! Hope you are well :)

How are things going Tanna? Miss hearing from you!

Dear Tanna, I hope all is well; thinking of you. Blessings dear. Catherine
