My little house

Yesterday we got the keys to our house. (YEAH!) I love my house...mostly because it is mine. My little house that I can do whatever I want to with. My own backyard with a cute little fence. My own laundry room (It's huge and will eventually be turned into a bathroom plus it is already plumbed for a toilet). My own craft/office room. I am just so excited.
Matt and I did a walk through and saw that they didn't clean (it was sooo disgusting!) very well so I spent today cleaning the kitchen, mostly the refrigerator and stove ( i can't handle putting my food in something with some one elses dirt all over it...gross!). I realized that being in that key lime green kitchen all day gave me a headache, so I ended up painting it also. It made for a long day...thank you mom for dropping me by some dinner. Then Matt and I decided that we didn't want a yellow bedroom and since I was already painting the kitchen, why not the bedroom too. I left my camera at home today, so I will post before and after pictures tomorrow.
We will officially move in on Saturday, but, I have already move some things over. I am just not that patient. It's just too exciting!

I was just grinning so much when I read this one! You have a lot of energy to have painted and cleaned and moved and packed and just got back from a trip - whew! You make me tired to just read about. Congrats on the new house! I think we are all ready for a tour : )

Congrats on you OWN house. It is always nice having a place of your own to call home and not have to worry what the neighbors think of what you are doing or worry about being loud or not.I can't wait to see pictures.

It's so great to have your own space. Congrats on your new home. I'm sure it will be so cute. Give me a call in may for sure so we can get together.

I wish I could have seen it before you painted it so I could have gotten an accurate view.

Let me know if you need any help moving in. As you well know, well, I'm not doing much of anything these days :P

That is awesome Arah! I wish
I could come over and help...unfortunately that can't happen. I am so excited for pictures...

Congratulations Arah on your new house! It must feel wonderful to think- "I want the kitchen to be a different color- so I am going to do it!". I will totally have to change my way of thinking when we finally buy - - it will probably still be awhile! Anyway, I am so happy for you.
