It's the last piece of furniture that we really need for our house. The rest of it is just minor decorations...pictures on the walls...things that really personalize it.
But everything is coming together, and it's really exciting.
And we even got a new fridge...some friends got a newer one (from Craigslist) and gave us their older one (which is only about 3 years old). And we are getting a new stove/oven range because the ancient one in here is not really cooking our food. The landlord told us when we were moving it that it could stand to be changed...and after a few unsuccessful baking/cooking tries...he's getting a newer one (this one is from the Habitat for Humanity store in Littleton...I don't think our landlord knows the power of Craigslist just yet)
It's kind of our thing...move into a house and get newer appliances :)
Anyways, we sold most of living room/dining room furniture when we moved up here, so we've had fun finding some awesome deals to replace what we needed. We love shopping at IKEA...always fun there. And usually unbelievable prices.
Lee spent a lot of time organizing the books...as I sat on the couch and watched. It was definitely a pregnant woman moment...as I sat with my feet propped up and pointed to where a few things should go. He handled it really well!!!
Anyways, it really is starting to feel like a home. It is becoming more and more inviting...more and more of a place that I love coming home to. That's a good feeling.
