home-aloners

Cory and I are officially homeowners as of last week. We are now residents of Herriman- way up on the mountain. As such it has snowed the last two saturdays making it slightly more difficult to move as much as we would like. We're in the middle of making it our own (ie. painting, furnishing, wood floors from ikea)and it was slow going until we got our new mazda (not shown-maybe in our very own garage?)
Now if we could only get the rest of the BALK floor needed for the front room we'll be done in no time. Pictures will inevitably follow.

A special thanks to Ben and Sarah for being our first houseguests amid all the chaos.


Here is a list of firsts in our marriage

1. the first time we've had two cars. Well we had two cars before for about a week before the mustang died.
2. A dishwasher
3. a garage
4. a separate room for dot
5. stairs
6. as many bathrooms as there are people
7. a car with a remote door lock (mere is really excited about that one!)
8. a bedframe!
9. a guest room
10. a feeling of poverty in their hearts

Congrats Mary! You know I just joined that group of happy homeowners as well. It's crazy. I hope I can make it to visit your home someday. And I want to see before/after shots of the make-over. Oh, and send me your new address!

Congratulations Mary!! I was talking to your mom and she mentioned that EVÈRYONE in your family (except Gillian) was moving.

What an exciting time for you! When we bought our house I was excited to have our own space...but the whole idea of owing a hundred thousand dollars so so wasn`t so exciting. Of course, we`re almost half way through paying off our mortgage now! My how time flies. :0)
