We started a little closet renovation this past week. Due to my excellent builder scheduling skills i turned two little closets into a wonderful master walk in closet all with in 4 days. We have also added crown moulding throughout the house and changed out the kitchen hardware. Tomorrow is going to be a crazy busy morning, we are trying to move 99% of our apartment, Liz'sstorage unit (aka her parents house), and have all of our new furniture that we bought delivered all between the hours of 8am-12pm. Wish me luck or just come help.
Today is the big day of becoming a homeowner. We have been super busy packing, shopping for furniture and doing the last minute run around to make sure the deal is going to happen. We close today at 4pm and I think the sellers will be out on Sunday. We have actually become friends with the sellers and they seem really nice. We might be going out to dinner to celebrate!!
Well i have to get to work because i am leaving early today.
Ill keep you updated on my updates to the home and i am sure i will have some good delivery/cable set up stories to come.
Cant wait for everyone to come check out the new place.
We are closing in little over a week and we are getting really excited. We went over to our new house last night to measure some rooms, and deliver some stones and flagstone that i am going to use to build an outdoor kitchen. It was fun to see the house again and see that the sellers are getting all packed up and getting excited about their move.
We have been doing a lot of shopping in the last month and made our first big purchase. A brand new fridge.
We got a little nervous because this is the one we found at Home Depot and loved but we didn't think it would fit. It is going to barely fit and we got an amazing deal on it due to my builders discount. It is going to be nice to have a fridge that will actually store more than a weeks worth of food.
The next big ticket item is a TV. Anybody have any ideas on brands? We have been leaning towards a Samsung. But there is just too many to choose from now.
Funny story to poke fun at myself.... while we were house hunting last night I notice that my front tire was getting low. So I find my local QT and pull in to get free AIR. As I get the hose out to fill my tire up, a man pulls up with a bike that has a low tire, he says to me "you got a bad leak there buddy".... really man, thanks for telling me that as i am filling it up. I finally give up as my tire is almost 100% flat at this point and just give him the air hose. I start to talk to Liz about how we might be changing a tire in the parking lot. The biker gingerly walks over to the air machine and turns the air on..... yes everyone I was letting all of the air out of my tire, the man on the bike gently hands me the air hose and rides off into the sunset and Liz starts laughing in the car..... I fill up the tire and put the hose up.... Iam proud to say the tire is still full of air this morning. But I am still an Idiot.
The first year of marriage has sure flown bye. It seems like just yesterday we were standing outside on the record high day getting married. We have learned a lot about each other and how to live in a small one bed and ONE BATH apartment with a dog. It has been a great year and we celebrated this weekend by going to Ft Worth. We stayed in the brand new Omni Hotel, went to the Ft. Worth Zoo and had an amazing dinner at Bobs steak and chop house. I added some pics from the zoo. We ate the top of our cake the week we got back from the honeymoon, so i surprised Liz by getting a replica top layer of our wedding cake. It was sooooo good and it went great with the free champagne the hotel gave us. Anyways it was a great weekend and i am so blessed to have a great wife.
Does anyone know why at graduations do you have to wear those funny looking hats?
This weekend we were pretty busy with all of the graduation festivies, i felt like all we did was drive from place to place. It was a great weekend and we had a lot of fun with all our family and friends. So now i guess i have to refer to Liz, as Master. .......
