what a weekend...

Even though it was a blizzard outside we got lots of work done inside. With the help of my parents, aunt & uncle, and my sister & brother-in-law we got a lot of work done. I have taking a million pictures (shocking, I know) but here are some that I am most proud of! (many more will follow, I will make another slideshow sometime soon!)

home sweet home

More pictures will come, I promice! I officially became a homeowner yesterday afternoon. Everybody says closing is a nightmare but honestly it wasn't too bad... I was out of there in 30 minutes. Now for the fun stuff... My sister and I went over to MY house today after school. It is going to take me a while to get used to saying that. Anyway we were measuring the floor because there is carpet everywhere, and my dad is a master with ceramic tile so that is project #1 of the weeked. Anyway there just happened to be a corner of the carpet that was coming loose. So since it was my carpet to pull up, I decided to take a look. Much to my surprise, there was beautiful pink tile under the carpet.

It's funny to me the things that you notice once you are actually in the house for a while. More funny/interesting stories to come. Here's to one crazy adventure into making this house a home!

saving the pink bathroom...

Yes its true, there is a website dedicated to "saving the pink bathroom" and yes my friends I will be saving the pink bathroom in my new house! If you don't believe me click here to see for yourself.

Dream with me for a second....

I close on my house on Thursday (3-19)! Pictures of the real place will shortly follow! In the mean time I am praying the wall paper off the walls. (P.S. EVERY square inch of wallspace is covered in wallpaper... from pink hearts to sunflowers and blue gingham...SICK! Down will wallpaper and up with a fresh coat of paint!)
