The keys were obtained Friday night. Boxes have been slowly brought over. Today more stuff is being brought over. By Easter, we should be there full-time. This is pretty exciting, except of course for the lifting and unpacking.
Here we are in the car on the way to the New House. Yay! There are many, many traffic lights between the in-laws’ place and ours and I am too impatient to sit at a traffic light when I COULD be in my new home!
Here is our lovely front step. Whereas I am a little sad we don’t have a large enough front porch for me to sit on, it’s still nice to have some steps!
Once you walk in, enjoy our back and white tiles in the foyer. I certainly do!
This is the view you get from the front door. I love the hard wood stairs up to the second floor. There is also a huge skylight window above that mirror on the left wall which brightens up the entire staircase.
Off to the right of the front door is our living room slah dining room. Currently we have nothing to go in this room other than boxes. We will quickly be getting rid of that dining room light as it is beyond tacky and so far Shawn has hit his head on it about 17 times.
Between the front door and the stair to the second floor is our lovely powder room. It’s good to have a bathroom on every floor. At least in my case it is.
Cat in the mirror! Yes, this powder room is very pink.
Yet another mirror shot. This is the full legnth mirror at the (almost) bottom of the staircase. I thought this was a nifty shot, although crooked.
I swear our home is much more level than my photographs make it out to be.
This is My Bathroom. It’s the bathroom on the top floor, which I have already claimed. I have a lovely black & white dog & cat theme going on here. Thank you Wal-Mart. It’s too hard to get a full bathroom shot, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that the garbage pail, cups and soap holders match.
Aren’t my towels the cutest? The answer is of course yes!
Here is Shawn in our basement which will be the “family room”. I am quite happy that we have that built-in wall unit down here. It will make things easy for all our DVDs and games. Yay!
I shot this from the kitchen as Shawn and his father put our kitchen table back together. It was originally built by my FiL but it warped pretty badly from water damage during the fire. My FiL has since redone the top of the table, all straight and varnished and brought it over to the house to put the legs back on. It will be in our kitchen ultimately, although with nothing to put in that large room, we will most likely put it in the dining room portion of the house.
And lastly for now, our kitchen. Well one half of it. They left us their old dishwasher which will be changed for mine since it’s pretty much brand new. It’ll be nice to have it actually under the counter rather than having to move it around all the time.
Everyone else is currently packing up truck and cars as I sit and write up this post. We’re taking more stuff over today. I should probably go help with that.
