So we the proud parents of an adorable little boston terrier named Elsie. We have had her for a while I am just lame and posting!

Our next big announcement is that we are also proud homeowners. We closed on the house in early September! It's 1300 sqft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, and it has a pool! We have been working really hard to get as much done inside before we have to move out of our apartment on the 17th of this month.

Sadly the third day of owning our home we were robbed. Luckily we only had two boxes in the house full of tools and other odds and ends. But my digital camera was in one of the boxes. So I can't show you any of the things that we have done. So just to give you an idea we....

stripped the wallpaper out of the bathroomS, and dining area...then sealed the walls
painted all of the baseboards and trim
sanded all the cabinetry and so far have stained and sealed all of the frame work in the house
painted the master bedroom and kitchen
spray painted all of the vents
and instead of replacing the fixtures in the house we spray painted them a bronze/brown color!

Our bodies are sore and our hands feel like they are going to fall off. But it is awesome to see results. It looks awesome so far and once I can get my hands on a camera I will post some pictures.

We also were in Utah last week for the wedding of Kimmy and Garrett. It was an exhausting trip but well worth it. I can't wait until Christmas!!!! And in other news I got a job!
