Oh, by the way......




Here's a sneek peek at the inside of OUR NEW HOUSE!!!! Yep, we got it! The orange one previously posted! We should close in 2 weeks or so and I am SO freakin' excited! It's just over 200 sq/ft larger downstairs than where we currently live, with piles of fancy upgrades including a slate surround on the fireplace and entrance, gas appliances, and a huge giant vaulted ceiling in the entrance, the opposite wall of which will be a burnt orange color just as soon as i can get my roller on it. I've been daydreaming and planning on what I will do with my new home once it's mine, and the first order of business is to choose a refrigerator and washer/dryer. And wallpaper. Oh, do I have some plans with the wallpaper............. expect some fun posts about that coming soon... I challenge you to find fancy eclectic wall paper and post links! Also, any advice on fridge/laundry appliances? And it appears our dryer can be either electric or gas ( both hookups are present....) so what would you advise there? Pro's/ cons to either?

OMG Y'all. We're finally going to get *our* home.

For the dryer, gas is slightly better efficiency usually.

SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!

dryer: electricity prices tend to be more stable.

washer:http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=299417-46-WTW57ESVH&lpage=none

fridge: frigidaire, i love the "stainless look" ones, you can still us magnets and much easier to keep all those fingerprints off of.

i'll have to get back to you on the wallpaper. have you thought of decals? easier to put up and take down. my favorite site is http://www.walltat.com/

SO DOING THE BIG HAPPY DANCE!!
