Here it is! The post many of you have been waiting for.

So this post is a long time coming. Sorry everyone for keeping you waiting so long but here are pictures of our new place! I wanted to wait until almost everything was done and cleaned up before I posted. I am going to do this post a little different. I couldn't post this without do it in the form of a thank you.
I am first going to thank myself to get it out of the way. I have to thank myself for all the hours (trust me it was a lot) I put into painting our new place! My sister helped me paint about half of our living room but the rest was all me. I even painted all the white that you see. I love painting but next time I am recruiting help.

Next is to my parents and family. My dad helped AE put up the cabinets and my mom helped me clean things I never even knew would need cleaning. The saturday after we got our keys they came and spent 12 hours helping me clean and getting everything ready to paint. I couldn't have done it without them. My family also helped us move everything out of our apartment and into our new place. We were able to move everything in one day. Super fast!

our bathroom floor!

Next I need to thank my in laws. They tiled the bathroom floor (yes you are reading that right) and my father in law helped pull out our yucky vines in front of our place and helped change out all the sockets and light switches. Our place definitly lookes better because of them.

I need to thank AE's grandma for feeding us during our move. She showed up with food. We would have gone hungry without her.

I have to thank Brent and Maria. Maria for helping us get into our condo (if anyone needs a realitor when they buy a place she is your woman) and Brent for hooking us up with our amazing cabinets!

I need to thank Home Depot for all the wonderful things we picked up from their store. We got a lot of things for great deals. I think I practically lived there for two weeks straight.

I also need to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers as we went through the process of getting a home of our own. As many of you know it was a long and painful process but we got into our place in the nick of time.

The top one is of our cabinets before and the bottom is of our cabinets now. HUGE difference.

And last but not least....I am so grateful for AE. He tore out sheet rock, demolished old cabinets, built our new cabinets, hung mirrors, light fixtures, bathroom fixtures, covered up holes, put in our kitchen cabinets, cut a hole in the counter for a sink (a lot harder than it lookes), Installed our counter tops, connected faucets, fixed our doorbell, changed out sockets and many many more things. Without him none of this would have been possible. I am so glad i have a handy man and know that I will never have to call an electrician or a plumber. I love you honey.

I am sorry if I left anyone out. Just know I appreciated any help I got.

Here are just a few extra pictures of our place. I hope you enjoy.

Some of these pictures may look weird. It was hard to get an angle of some. Also in the picture with our cabinets we still need to order end pieces, kick boards and another filler so that's why they may look funny. We also need to get handles and knobs for our doors and drawers.

What? No purple carpet or cinder block walls? It looks so good! Oh what I would give to live in a house! You guys put a ton of extra work into that place! It looks really great! Hope you are loving it!


OH MY HEAVENS! I didn't even get the message you say you left me! I need to hear about all the drama that went into getting this place! You and AE did an excellent job. Look how grown up you are! I am so excited for you guys. I am getting into town on the 17th of Dec. and leaving the 7th of Jan. I am sure I will be able to get together with my 1000 court girls! Talk to you soon!
