Home sweet home

We were out on a drive the other day, and we saw a nice little home that was for sale. We had some extra cash, so we bought it. (Thanks to our parents for the "training wheels").

Here are some pictures of it.

We are seriously excited for moving day, August 16th. I've already started looking at options for a canine friend. I'm sad to announce to all those who supported me through thick and thin during the Bulldog or Bust campaign: I won't be laying down $2500 for a bulldog. I've never been a quitter, so let's just call this a rain-check.

Also exciting for me: I get to find out if I'm just a poser handyman or if I have what it takes.

What a beautiful house! I don't know if I would trust a pole in the basement with Dan around. He has a tendency to get excited and run into things. On that note, if you ever decide to get a Nintendo Entertainment System, keep it upstairs.

Just had to comment on your new home. What a blessing of a house! So happy for you two. As I have been ill these past few days, I have had some down time and so decided to peruse the blog world....something that frankly eludes and overwhelms me. I have been laughing so hard at your entries, Daniel. When I came to the photos of your home it put a huge smile on my face! xoxo, Aunt Noelly

WOW!!! What an awesome place--is that the owners stuff or does it come furnished? I love the decor! We are loving our new place too!--and the fact that we're renting--"Just call the Landlady!"
