We LOVE our house - we can't get over how much space we have. I recommend to every new homeowner to first live in a small, cramped place, and then your next modest-sized home will seem HUGE to you!
We have a lot of work to do still, but Jason was off today, so he got some shelves hung in the garage, hung a bunch of blinds (it was a little uncomfortable having NONE of the windows covered - at least now about 1/2 of them are, including our bedroom & living room) and bought our mailbox.
We're still waiting for our grass, but we're thinking it'll be tomorrow. Today they seeded & strawed our back yard, so that's a start. We are now on a mission for new couches & a kitchen table, among other things. Ah, the joys of home ownership!
Here are some pictures of the dining room:
Living room (temporary set-up, as I said, we're going to buy new couches):
Now, I feel like the living room pictures need a little explanation. For you football fans, Jason had Dallas in his survivor pool, and I happened to be taking pictures of the living room during the last few seconds of the game. The picture on the left is him celebrating the field goal (notice Willie cowering in the foreground), then the one on the right is after they said a timeout was called before the kick and they'd have to re-do it. Football season is certainly exciting around here!!
