Wow - it has been a crazy past few days! I married a very strong man and thankfully he has a very strong father because the two of them moved ALL of our things in to our condo and up the stairs by themselves...whew - I'm so glad I'm a girl!!
The first thing we did was set up Chad's coffe maker - I got him a new one for Xmas and he's basically having a love affair with it! He makes it every morning and most nights...and he's gotten me slightly addicted to gourmet coffee! Anyways - we set that up and the next thing we did was put all of our kids toys together...my word - they have way too many toys! Well, we're pretty much done unpacking...we have about 4 more full tubs to unload, but other than that - we just need to get our t.v. installed above the fireplace (when we purchased the condo we received a 40 somethin' inch plasma television) and obviousely by the looks of the pics, we need to paint. We LOVE it hear! Our furniture fit perfectly and the walk-in closets are huge so there's room for seasonal clothes and seasonal tub storage (ya' know, Xmas, Easter, Halloween). I'm currently re-upholstering our dining room chairs - there's a pic in the slideshow of the material I'm using. Another big bonus to where we live is we're literally 2 minutes from Chad's work - he could ride his bike there...don't worry - he won't...but he could! :) There's LOTS of pictures - mainly because my mom isn't here and I know she wants to see all the angles. :) Also - Mac and Amy Bell opened a photography studio a while back and last time we were in town they took pictures of our family. We haven't gotten the "family" pics back yet, but we did receive the individual pics of the kids - so I took pictures of them in their frames...sorry if there's a glare. Once we're done painting and hanging pictures (which may be a long while!), we'll post pics of the finished product!
I've attached a link to a gallery of pics that will show the condo as well as the pool, playground and marina...there are also pics of a few stores and restaraunts that are within walking distance.
