We're Homeowners!

Blog (and your throngs of readers), meet our house...

Not the best picture but it's all I have on this computer. So, we officially closed last night after a couple agonizing months. People told me foreclosures could be a PITA but I had no idea. Now we are in for a whole lotta renovating. Starting, well, tomorrow (if we're not too hungover after tonight's debauchery). Before we move in this is our list of to-dos:
  • Living room/dining room: paint, put up new crown moulding and base boards
  • Master bedroom: paint, put up new base boards
  • MBR closet: new carpet, paint, put up shelving system
  • Bathrooms/Kitchen: scrub top to bottom with Lysol
  • New light fixtures, outlet covers, etc. for LR/DR and MBR
This is just the bare minimum that I have to have done before moving in. The rest we will work on while living there. Stay tuned for lots of before and after pictures.

In summation, I would also like to say goodbye to 2008. It has been an awesome year. We got married on August 30th and bought a house exactly 4 months later. We also had the trip of a lifetime to Tahiti for our honeymoon. It has been a year of milestones. As wonderful as 2008 has been to us, I am ready for 2009. This will be the first year together being married (joint tax filing - woohoo) and moving into our new house will be an adventure in and of itself.

Happy New Year!
