Eric and I closed on the house Friday! We are expecting a phone call this evening to go meet with the FORMER owner and get the DL on how to work the sprinkler and alarm systems, etc.

We ventured out with the boys in the terrible weather yesterday to purchase goods for our new home. We are moving our old skinny kitchen set to the "study" for a computer and work area. We ordered a new custom counter height kitchen set with bar stool seating from WoodCo in VanBuren. We will use most of our old kitchen bar stools at the actual bar area in the kitchen...I'm already planning to custom create cushions and whatnot to decorate their dreary old selves! Also, we finally decided to go with Ashley bedroom and living room furniture...can't really afford much else and it's pretty. Will place order this week. And, to top it all off, we ordered our new stainless dishwasher to replace the highly questionable one that nearly cost us the house in the first place! SSSSSOOOOO...I took the boys to Lowe's Thursday and let them pick paint colors for their room and their bathroom. Red (Cardinal) for the baseball bedroom and blue for their Cars bathroom. I hope it turns out the way I've pictured. If not, paint is relatively cheap and I don't mind the work! :0)

This week, I've been obsessing over a new blog I found called the nester, or something like that. Her motto is that it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, and I plan to use her decorating style in the new house...hope it works as wonderfully as I picture it!

Back to the old grind tomorrow. I can't stand that I still have two more months at KJH! I want school to be over so I can spend more time crafting, creating, and decorating!
