We got the keys!!!

Just wait...
till you see...
what we...
are gonna' do...
to this place!

Many of you have asked about our new home and I'm happy to report that I can finally share the news. We got a great deal on a bank-owned property that is in need of a lot of TLC. Doug and I loved the potential in this house the minute we saw it, and we're so excited to make it shine.

We got our keys today and Doug has already started working. We're doing {ok, Doug is doing...} new floors, doors, base boards, painting kitchen cabinets...etc., etc. We'll move in next weekend (the 27-28th) and just couldn't be more excited about that.

I have a few posts planned for this next week, but my blogging will take a back seat for a bit. I'm gonna' be a busy girl...and I'll be smiling every step of the way!

Peace.
