A Final House Update [Linkup]

Hello ladies, and happy Tuesday! My blog game has really been slacking lately, but trust me when I say that I have never had more going on in my life. We just don’t slow down over here, and I will definitely be sharing what has been going on lately soon! In the meantime, it is Talk About It Tuesday, and I hope you do join in!
We are due to close on our house in 2-3 weeks, and it feels surreal. Sometimes, the end date feels so far away, but other times I realize it is so dang close I can’t believe it! Since my last update, lots of progress has definitely been made!
Jackson is a fan of the house; he loves to drive his trucks in the dirt piles, and he also loves to climb the stairs inside. The stair climbing is not a favorite thing for the rest of us, that child has no fear!
Here is an in progress photo of the paint. It is all finished now, and I love the colors. We did a really neutral and warm beige throughout all of the house, and the master bedroom and bathroom are a very light gray. Eventually, we will paint the boys rooms and bathrooms and spice things up a bit, but to start neutral works just fine! 
Here is a shot into the upstairs bathroom right after the tile was put in. We were SO excited to see real floors!
All the heart eyes over our master bathroom tile. I debated at one point scrapping the custom master suite and just going with the style of the rest of the house, but I am so glad we stuck with our plan. It feels like our own special space, and trendy and unique compared to the rest of the house, which is more traditional.
You guys, OUR CABINETS. I can’t even describe how it felt walking in and seeing our kitchen decked out with cabinets and countertops. On a fun note, our countertops are actually laminate; I am blown away by how far laminates have come, my sister had to be told they weren’t granite because at a glance that is what you would assume. I love how it turned out!
The only painted cabinets of the house are in our master bath, and I can’t get enough of the ‘greige’ color we picked. 
I cannot wait to finally get my tub in there! See that cable jack on the wall? I envision lots of soaks in the tub with a glass of wine watching my favorite shows!
Here are the closet doors in one of the upstairs bedrooms. 
My fireplace mantle! I am already dreaming up all of the things I will be able to put on my big fat mantle. Garland, a Christmas village? I am so excited to use this space!
And last but not least, at this very moment the siding on our house is being done! The garage and half of the back is done right now, it is so fun to drive by and see so much exterior change from the beginning to the end of the day!
What’s left? Concrete on our porch/driveway, finishing the exterior stone and fireplace stone, tiling the shower and bathtub, and carpet! Oh, and putting in our pretty kitchen appliances 🙂 Like I said, it feels so far, yet so close! By the time I am due for another update, we will be living in our new house! Someone pinch me!

    Loving all the details so far! Can't wait to see the end results! Laminate really has come a long way. My parents redid their kitchen a few years ago and went with laminate and it looks amazing!

    I am excited to see the finished product. I love the bathroom tile and the grey vanity.
