It’s hard to believe, but it’s finally happening.
People, we are finally closing on our house. On May 31st, we will finally be out of this hotel and into our own home!
Actually, I’m getting ahead of myself. On May 31st we’re closing, but we don’t actually move in until Saturday June 2nd. That whole “Brandon has to work during the week” thing is really slowing us down.
I just can’t believe it. After almost 100 days, I will transition from using this “kitchen” (I use that term loosely) …
… to using this kitchen:
Can I get an “AMEN!”??
The funny thing is, I’ve grown kind of attached to my Residence Inn peeps. I’m pretty much BFF now with everyone who runs the front desk and the kitchen staff. It’s almost hard to imagine life without them …
Today I wanted to give you guys a sneak-peek at our new home. I’m just so excited, that I can’t wait anymore to share it with you!
For privacy purposes, I’m not going to show the whole outside of the house, but this picture gives you a nice idea.
The backyard has a privacy fence, and a cute area to hang out and grill with friends!
I love the hardwood floors in the living room!
Stairs to the upstairs level.
Master bedroom, with doors leading into the master bathroom.
That’s not the whole house, but it gives you a general idea of the place.
Now all of the furniture that you see is the current owners’ property. We are currently on the hunt for new furniture. And we have a lot of rooms to furnish! It total, we have 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, an “extra” room (basically a bedroom without a closet), living room, dining room, and kitchen! We have some furniture now, but most of it is hand-me-downs from Brandon’s parents, and we’re ready for some new furniture of our very own.
I know we don’t have to furnish every room right away. But we do want to tackle some of the rooms A-SAP. Any tips on where to find the best deals? I’d love to hear your suggestions!!
Question for ya …
Any suggestions on where to find good furniture deals?
Any decorating suggestions??
(I’m not very good at that stuff … )
What are you up to this weekend?
