Exactly 3 weeks from Moving Day! I've really got to get moving on the packing.
I was able to go in the house again today. It was close to 6:00 and still light outside! Phil was right, Spring is coming. Or not. Anyway, I forgot my scan disk, so no new pictures :( The house is pretty much done. Other than the light fixtures, some cleaning and touching up, and filling the yard, there's not much left to do. Overall I'm very happy. There are some little details I'll be filling you in on in the coming days. But all in all, it's fantastic. Here's something else I'm looking forward to:
#21 - Location, Location, Location
When my husband and I got married a year and a half ago I moved into his place. It is "far" away from the rest of my life. I'm at least 45 minutes from of my frequent destinations - work, family, friends, a decent mall, etc... My husband's family lives by us, but my husband has a 50 minute commute each way. When we move both of us will cut our commutes in half! I am really looking forward to that and will certainly appreciate it next winter.
Aside from our shorter commute times, we are in a good location. We are in Butler county where taxes are much lower than they are in Allegheny county - the county that Pittsburgh is in. Even though we're out of the county, we're still only about 25-30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and really important places like Heinz Field - the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers...who happen to be playing in the Super Bowl this weekend just in case you didn't know :) I digress.... Anyway, not only that but we're minutes from a major interstate and the PA turnpike. But I'm most excited that pretty much everything we need is minutes away. Great restaurants, grocery store, Target, Kohls (I love that place!), Bed Bath and Beyond, you get the idea. We're also just minutes from Lowes and Home Depot where we'll be making frequent trips in the coming weeks and months. One of the first items on the list? Replacing the ugly faucets....
I'm bummed to hear that brushed nickel was standard for some of you. We're stuck with chrome, but not for long - at least for the downstairs that is.
Have a great weekend everyone!
