We're almost there....

I've never had a blog, and I figured...when would be a better time to start a blog than now?? :) There is so much to do to our new home and I thought it might be fun to post pictures and stories as we go along. If no one ever reads this, it will at least be a journal that I can look back and read one day. If you do follow, enjoy!

Tom and I will be first time homebuyers as of Wednesday at 2pm :) As most of you probably know, we are buying a house that is not move-in ready. We've tried to be as prepared as we can be for our new house. Our thought process has been "why wait until we have the house to get things when we can be buying them along the way." you'll see in some of the pictures below, we're definitely stocking up on some much needed items for the house :)

New Locks, blinds, ceiling fans, bath faucets, light switches, cabinet knobs, and much much more!
I think Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware have become my second home already. Thanks in large part to my aunt and some friends who hooked us up with a ton of coupons from Lowes, all of these purchases above were bought for a good deal :)

The 46 cans of paint we've bought so far as well as a few other items

Yes, you read correctly....we've bought 46 gallons of pain thus far. This house needs a complete make-over when it comes to paint. Every wall and ceiling will need to be painted. We've bought ceiling paint, primer, baseboard paint, and of course...the paint which will be tinted to different colors. Who wants to have a paint party?? :)

I'll try to post as much as I can as we go through this whole process and I can't wait to invite all of our friends and family to an open house once everything is completed and we are all moved in!
