House Update!

Since we have been home we have been doing our best to get something in our house done everyday.
Last week we were able to get all of our appliances and put them in their places
{Thanks to Craigslist we were able to get a brand new (never even plugged in) stove and matching microwave for super cheap - our realtor is sending us a check to purchase a new stove but since we got it for so cheap we used the leftover money and got our washer and dryer (also off Craigslist)
All for only $50 out of our pocket. Yeah, we were pretty happy about that.}
We also finished painting all the closets, washed all of our clothes, bought new shower heads, cleaned our bathrooms (from all the painting stuff) and picked up our new furniture.
Yesterday Benson and I cleaned up the Kitchen a bit and made our first meal on our stove/in our house: PastaRoni - gourmet, I know
Our goal for this weekend: Finish the cabinets so we can actually put our junk away!
I apologize to all of our friends and family who we have not yet invited to our house - trust me you're not missing much.
There is nowhere to sit
no lights (except in 1 bathroom and our bedroom)
and there was no door on the one working bathroom until Tuesday.
We're getting there - and when we do, you're all invited.
I will even make you food - and I promise it will be something better than pasta roni.
p.s. House, wedding and honeymoon pictures coming soon!
