.I'm so excited & I just can't hide it.

After a weekend and a Monday of hard work, numerous trips to Lowes, alot of swiffering, three loads of laundry in my own washer and dryer, and countless trips up and down stairs...our house has really turned into a home. We lucked out last night & scored an appointment to have the dish cable guy come this morning and switch our service, we found 2 inch blinds at lowes that were ready to install, and Dave did. Hording gift cards from birthdays and holidays has totally paid off, because we have really been lucky enough to not spend much out of pocket to get things we need and want. Tonight Randy came with Katie and the girls and installed a new thermostat (WOO HOO!) and now we have heat that keeps itself regulated and has a cute blue LED screen too! Last night my parents came over and hung out with us. My mom & I took a walk around the neighborhood looking at landscaping and talking about what to do with our yard. It was great to see them!
Here's a little peek...

Everything still needs some decorating. Pictures need to be hung, accessories need to be bought, and i still need some pieces of furniture. But we're well under way!

Dave agrees with everyone. The kitchen is his favorite. He says "people buy houses for the kitchens." haha
