Home Sweet Home!

So..... we're in! Well, sort of. Okay, we're definitely in, but we still have several items in storage at various locations, but as you can see, we moved quite a bit stuff into the house and we spent our very first night here on Friday, and it was great!

We unloaded everything and comtemplated some seriously lifelike statuesque structures for the side porch.

Very regal.

After a full day of U-Haulin' (in the snow) and a long night of cleaning up at 305, we enjoyed a delicious dinner of bison burgers and delectable side dishes with our friends Steven & Rachel, who invited us over to enjoy an evening of not having to cook or clean up afterwards. It was fantastic and such nice way to celebrate --- food & friends (and zero dishes)! What could be better than that?

I'll tell you what: The brownies. They were awesome and apparently fat free.

But back to the move in.....

As most everyone who knows us knows, Evan and I met after I answered an ad on Craiglist for a $30 bookcase. Well, here we are moving THE Infamous Bookcase that went from his house to my house and now into OUR new home.


We had the final coat of sealer put on the hardwoods earlier in the week (they look amazing and we'll share pics soon). We wanted to allow for a little extra time before moving any furniture upstairs, so after we unloaded the truck and returned from dinner, we popped a bottle of champagne,-a gift from the 'rents to celebrate our first night in the house- we hung some temporary blinds and we all camped out in the dining room and the entryway for our very first cozy night in our new home.  Cheers!

We are still working on getting unpacked and organized and probably will be for days, but we are here and it feels great! As I type, Evan is still projecting and pulling everything together. At the moment he is hard at work replacing light switches and outlets----10 down. Ninety to go.  Seriously. And me, well I'm adoringly "supervising" as I am take a break from wondering how in the world I acquired so much stuff and what in the world I am ever gonna do with it all.

Its hard to believe that in a little over a month we were able to complete so much! And while we still have a ways to go, we couldn't be happier to be here and calling 26 East -- Our Home.
