What else should we do the day after Christmas and 4 days before move in but check on the house. That's right I said 4 days before move in. We are having our walk thru in 2 days and then will close on the 30th. There has been a major rush with getting everything done with the house as well as needing all kinds of paperwork again.....don't even get me started on that. But here's what we found, the back splash in our bathroom was put in as well as the mirror. Doesn't it look awesome? I love it and it really ties the bathroom together since it's in the shower too.
Nothing new except that the landscape is being put in. When Kev was meeting with the landscaper and they were going over things he had to keep telling the guy we didn't want desert landscaping. When I went with him one time and the guy had this plan drawn up and what he was putting where I was like no, no, ugly, no way, never and so it went. We didn't want palo verde trees, and we didn't want cactus and we didn't want bougainvilleas. We did some research and found stuff we liked and we had three of these ficus trees in our backyard and loved them. So here is the start of the new yard. A nice big ficus tree.
It's so crazy how fast everything is moving now. Another trip out to the house and we found lots of surprises. Our granite was installed in the kitchen and both bathrooms. We picked out this kind of gray/white speckled granite for the kitchen to go with the cabinets and floors. And you know you pick it out with this little 4x4 square so who knows how it's really going to look. But once we saw it we loved it, especially with the subway tile back splash we picked to go with it. The only thing left to be done in the kitchen is the appliances.

- As of January 2009, I no longer have a job. It's not that I lost it, but after 26 1/2 years of working at the Post Office, I retired. According to everyone I know, I don't do anything all day, so I decided to start a blog. Now I can blog about what I don't do all day. I am married to Kevin, who is the most awesome husband I could ever have. It's because of him, that I do not go to work any more. I love that and I love him for that. Between the 2 of us we have 4 children. Hunter 31, Heather 29, Paul 28 and Alicia 26.
