So this is what you call lazy...

The current situation that I am in now is that I am in my old apartment with Brandon, and what we should be doing is packing/cleaning...What we're really doing is...Brandon is actually working (boo!), and I'm facebooking/blogging! I have horrible motivation sometimes...I think it started this morning....

So this morning our fridge, washer and dryer were delivered. To sum it up, I basically missed work ALL morning...It didn't help that the experienced deliverer brought the new guy, and the new guy brought in the wrong washer and dryer. Luckily I noticed they were the wrong ones when they were half way moving them...I did get to read a good chunk of the 6th Harry Potter book. :) (I need to refresh my memory before the movie comes out in July). On the brighter side, we have a fridge now, so that means we can actually buy groceries and eat at home.

Back to the now...in our old apartment we don't have much left, just odds and ends from each room that we don't use day to day...I really should just get up and pack. :) I do have the WHOLE kitchen to pack too...*sigh*

On a good note, I love our new house!!!! It is soo quiet! I haven't slept soo good, since we stayed at the Anniversary Inn, or the Stratosphere. I forgot how nice it is to not have people walking on my head. It's also nice to have stairs to walk up and down, it kicks my butt everyday, but hey it's exercise!

Well now I'm just rambling, so I'll probably be getting off to start packing...tomorrow after work I'll need to clean because we have to be out of the apartment at the latest by thursday. I know, I know, Brandon and I are taking our time! I do have to say it's nice to take our time to move. Anyway...that's my ramblings for today! I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! Night :)

It's Townhouse Time!!!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted on this blog. Tenille can't seem to put down Breaking Dawn right now though, so I will take a moment to update things.

Well, if you haven't heard, the cats out of the bag. We are buying our first home! It's a new townhouse in Saratoga Springs, Utah, just northwest of Utah Lake. It faces east towards the valley, and although the view is blocked by more townhouses, our backyard consists of a field and and then the mountain landscape. Not too bad if you ask me!

One of the things I like so much about this place is the fact that actually feels like a single-family house. It officially has 2,090 sqaure feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms (one of which is the master bathroom which has a separate tub and shower AND a walk-in closet), a separate laundry room which is upstairs with the bedrooms, a kitchen with a pantry and a spacious dining room to go along with it, a two car garage with room to spare, and if that's not enough, a huge unfinished basement. (I have claimed the basement as my playground for the next few years, hopefully to turn part of it into a theatre room.)

Since no one has lived in it before, the walls are all white, which Tenille has declared loud and clear will not last for long. The other night we picked out colors to paint it, and yes folks, she gets her little red kitchen again. It was pretty funny because when we looked at red colors for the kitchen, the first one she picked up was the same color we painted our current kitchen.

Forgive the panoramic shots for being a bit crude... but you get the idea :) We are expected to close on Monday, and as all of you who have already bought a houose, you know how much fun the waiting game is at this point!
