Corpus Christi House Tour

Since we have officially moved out of our Corpus Christi home, now seems like as good of a time as any to do a little house tour. This might be our favorite house we have ever lived in, but we really have loved every one. We were there less than 4 months, but it definitely felt like home by the time we left it. For the first time, we lived in on-base housing. Base housing is hit or miss, but if you are in the military and get stationed in Corpus Christi, live on base. Trust me. It was so fun living a few doors down from our friends, and the house was perfect for us. It was a little smaller than any house we have had before, but there are just two of us plus a furball. We really don't require a mansion over here.

We decorated very minimally since we knew we were only going to be here a few months. We had a few boxes in the garage full of pictures that were never hung. We hung a few, but for the most part, we just enjoyed the white walls and rolly pollies. (Seriously, we had to sweep rolly pollies out of the house daily. They were all over Corpus Christi for some odd reason. Weird.) I snapped a few pictures before we left so I would be able to look back and remember the house we called home in Corpus Christi, TX!

Bedroom:
This was a great little room with the biggest master closet we've ever had... score! Parker actually built every piece of furniture in this room, which I love. What's not pictured is the big black blanket we hung over the window to keep the light out. It was super classy, let me tell ya. Here's to hoping I actually invest in some blackout curtains at the next location. 


Living Room:
Love this room! We finally purchased a sectional during our time here after talking about it for over two years. This was our favorite room in the house. We are all about vegging out on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and our latest TV obsession. 


My Office:
This house was a 2/2, and every other house we have ever had was a 3/2. Losing that third bedroom was actually no big deal at all, but we did have to get a little creative. I work from home and he needs a quiet place to study, so I made my little office in the corner of our living room. It worked perfectly. Love that turquoise desk Parker built me in Kingsville!


Dining Room:
There really isn't anything special about this room itself, but man do we love this table! So excited to have little Phelplets sitting around it in the years to come.


Kitchen:
This was a smaller kitchen than our other houses have had (I have always been so spoiled in the kitchen department), but it did the job. It really was the perfect size for the two of us.


Parker's Office (Man Cave): 
I thought I'd try out the fancy panoramic section on the iPhone with this one. This is where the countless hours of studying with a few video game breaks happen.


We loved this house. We try to see the best in every living situation and really have loved everywhere the Navy has stuck us. This place was truly wonderful though. We will miss our Corpus Christi home!

I love this house. I also love how handy he is. That is awesome!!!!! The house we live in now is probably one of our favorites too. It's shocking considering the other apts we looked at in Charleston.

Amazing that he hand made all your bedroom furniture! And I've been there on hanging up a blanket over a window to keep light out, I've also used towels ;-)

Bed Bath & Beyond has black out curtains for a good price, plus you can use 20% off coupons!
