Hello There.

Give me a little more time and I'll finally have some more time to dedicate to you (and a real space to use for the computer instead of our little bistro table, yeesh!).  Yep, tomorrow is closing day. As you can imagine, we are thrilled, although it still seems unfathomable that tomorrow we officially become home owners.  All of our searching and budgeting has paid off. We found an amazing house AND will still have a comfortable savings after tomorrow's hefty check is handed over.

We lucked out and have a week overlap of owning the house (ah!) and our apartment lease; which means this weekend we'll be rolling up our sleeves and getting to work. The first major projects to tackle are the scraping of our living/dining room popcorn ceiling (after much debate about paying someone, we decided we'll take a whack at it first) and painting our woodwork trim white (I know, I know, some people, my mother-in-law included, think it's a sin. But it's our house and we'll do what we want). Wish us luck!
In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you. Go out and shop these deals, will ya?

  1. Have fun scraping! And for what it's worth, I love that all our trim is painted white. It's such a pretty accent color to the paint on the walls.

  2. I love white trim too. The wood is too in your face. Good luck with the move!

  3. Great post :)
