Speaking of I met a neighbor this weekend and had nice long conversation. She's lived hear for a year and a half and hasn't had any big issues, so that was reassuring.
Anyway, I can't believe we've lived here for two weeks already. All in all, we're settled in and now the real work begins. I can't say I'm proud of how the house looks right now, but thought I'd better get some pcitures posted. The house does look kind of blah because of our furniture and our lack of furniture. It won't stay this way for long, but at least you'll get the before shots before we fix it up :) I'll start with some downstairs rooms today.
I'm off work for the next two weeks, so I'm hoping to get moving on decorating. We're going to start looking at living room furniture this week and blinds are on my agenda,too. I'll also start accessorizing. The plan is that as we get furniture for each room we'll paint. I'm feeling very intimidated by painting and by the decorating in general. There are just way too many choices to make and since making decisions is not my strength, I'm feeling some anxiety. So I think it's better that we take it slow. So, here's where some things stand now:
|I still need to spruce up the kitchen. The stool is temporary, but I love sitting there!|
|I LOVE the refrigerator!|
|One of my favorite places (NOT my favorite furniture, however!)|
|My Living Room - The Hodgepodge of Furniture :)|
The fireplace is on my agenda for this week, too.
|We bought that wall unit over a year ago, but we were afraid to buy the bridge piece in case we couldn't keep the whole unit together. I'm going to order the bridge this week so at least one thing can be completed.|
|I have some ideas for new furniture for this room and how to arrange it, BUT I have no clue what to do with this spot!|
In other news, they FINALLY fixed our driveway. It was really bad last week after all of the rain. I was so happy to be able to park in the garage before we got hit with a bit of snow the other night. For the first time in a very long time, I didn't have to clean off my car and just got to enjoy the beautiful snow!

|I love all the trees.|
More pictures to come in the next few days. It'll give me something to look forward to :)
