We ended up getting keys Friday evening and for the last three days it has been a mad rush to get stuff done before we move in this coming Saturday! 

We are painting all of the walls white:
(it's taking for.ev.er.)
 We pulled off hideous contact paper that somehow was everywhere. 
I actually liked the original brown gingham but the ugly celestial was put right over the top of it.
 My awesome brother was able to get the ugly slate off of the hearth.
The next step is to put a fresh coat of white paint on all of the brick. 
 Things are slowly but surely getting crossed off the list!
And we are spending way more time/money at Home Depot than we ever thought possible.
I wish we could just go on vacation and have all this stuff done for us by the time we got back.
Oh did I mention that Thursday is our 5 year anniversary?
How romantic to spend it painting and eating subway or Costco hot dogs.
It will all be worth it though!

    Go little family, go! You can do it:-) Soooooo exciting! (We always grab subway or costco when we're in a hurry too). It's going to look so good in the end! xoxo

    It is totally worth it, although Home Depot stops start to get very annoying. We got to a point where we could recognize just about every employee at the 205 and Johnson Creek stores. A lot of the employees knew who we were too and by the end of it were asking about all of our projects. It was too much. I really don't like that place.
