Happy new to you , hope you had a whole lot of fun.
We had a nice relaxing holiday and now its back to reality , back to work , working out , cleaning house and packing for our move next month.
Lots of planning and day dreaming going on here that is for sure.
We have almost 100% decided on rough sawn pine floors stained dark, this has been a tough decision for sure , but from what I hear we will be happy with it , lot's of character for our spanking new place.
But the fence is an issue for the future. For now I have been just looking for appliances.
As I'm sure I mentioned I have a 36" opening for our range , we had considered building it in to accommodate a 30" range because 36" ranges are very pricey. I have been eyeing a beautiful Kitchen aid range at Sears . This floor model has been marked down for quite some time , since well before the idea of a new house was in our minds. It was crazy expensive , I won't even say how much , let's just say there was no way no how. But clearly not many people around here buy 36" ranges , so they were trying to move it. The price was fair but not low enough for us, that is until I asked . It really does pay to speak up because they came back with an unbeatable price so it ours now I'm so happy to say. It is so exciting , it is duel fuel , 6 burner and so pretty. We currently have a Kitchen aid convection smooth top range which we love , but it was sold with the house . The new range has all the same digital features of our current stove which will be so nice , no new learning for the kiddies.
I am really loving this corner house separate garage set up , a mere 56 days and we will be moving in to our very own corner house.
We indulged in lots of holiday goodies for Christmas and New Years , I enjoyed cooking up some killer treats , but it is time to get things back on track.
And these are the easy chicken enchiladas I served with the soup, yummy .
I'm off to tackle some more packing and cleaning .
Here's to a great fresh start for 2012
