On a happier note, I am loving our new home.

It's Official!

Do do do doooo...The house is ours! We got our key this past Wednesday. :D

We are now in the process of cleaning and painting. We spent most of the morning and afternoon today painting the whole downstairs. It was exhausting, but it will be more than worth it once we're done. Our friends, Ted and Scott, were there to help us.

We got the first coat on all the walls. And we'll finish the final coat on Monday. I am loving the color. It is called drifting dune. I will post a picture of the finished look, when we are done. So you can see just how purdy it really is. :)

Thank you Ted and Scott for all your help! You guys are beyond awesome.

Almost There

We finally signed the loan docs and paid our down payment this past week. So we should be getting our keys this coming week. I can't believe it is almost finally here! Our first home!

Here are some pictures of the inside of the house. It was really difficult to get good angles to take the shots. So it is hard to see everything. It's much better in person. ;) But here you go...

This is the front living room I'm standing in. It is what you see when you first come through the door. Through the archway is the dining room.

This is the kitchen and the family room. I am in love with the counter tops. They are a beautiful black granite. The first time I looked at this house with our realtor, I hugged the counters. LOL We plan on replacing that sad excuse for a mantle in the family room.

The ginormous loft. We are using this as the kids play area. Keeps all the toys from migrating downstairs.

The master bedroom.

The balcony off the master bedroom.

The yummy spa tub in our bathroom. Not fond of the tiles, but they'll do for now.

There are three other bedrooms upstairs, but it was too hard to get any pictures. Also the laundry room is upstairs, which is a plus.

Anyway, that is it. Hope you enjoyed the tour. :)
