Post # 1 - Everything is Brand New

I am getting my keys today at 5pm WHOO HOO! Hopefully everything will go smoothly. We stopped by the house and our PM was on top of things and got everything all touched up in one day. I was pretty impressed and what made things even sweeter is that our sod is in. It looks great and I do agree with Min that the sod was what was the finishing bow on top of the present. It looks beautiful and I could not ask for anything more. Believe it or not we have not packed! Crazy I know but hey no worries. I will start packing today. By the end of the night we will try to move a few boxes just a few. Tomorrow my ref. is supposed to be delivered in the morning by Best Buy. Later that afternoon we are supposed to do to my hubby's work party. It is held once a year and it happens to be tomorrow all day from noon to 6pm. Sunday is the day we will move all the heavy stuff such as furniture. I cannot wait till we are moved in. At least we can slowly move our stuff in since our apartment is paid till the end of the month. Here are some pictures ok maybe a little too much snapshots. I got excited! The photos are out of order so for that I apologize but you get the idea. I love that everything is brand new! No used stuff! Everything from the carpet, to vinyl floor, to trimming, freshly painted walls, fireplace with marble, new windows, deck, gourmet island, granite counter-tops, appliances, well enough said. I mean EVERYTHING is brand new and that is the most exciting part. Its a new chapter of our lives and we are starting into it. Its just a indescribable feeling.

I tried to take a picture of my little girl in each room but it was kind of tough. Can you tell that we are a tad over excited? Ok, not a tad how about a lot! I cannot wait till 5pm to get our keys. I wish it was earlier in the day but what can you do. I just love love love our brand new house. Now, all that is left is us and our pile of stuff. Look out house here we come!


  1. So excited for you guys stephanie! Loved all the pictures. Can't wait to see it in person in August.

  2. Ok, the pics look great, but I have to say THE MOST perfect thing is the litter girl!! =)

    You're house is amazing!! And it's so funny, I have this for a count down list too. lol Great pick and great pics!! Congrats!

  3. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Congrats Stephanie and Jon! Enjoy your new home!!!!

  4. LITTLE GIRL!!! OMGosh!!! Grrr. that's what I get for multitasking!! SORRY!!

  5. Woohoo! So exciting! The house looks great. You're right, the sod makes a huge difference. The yard and the house looks beautiful. Congrats!

  6. Omg! Beautiful! So excited for you :)

  7. Everything looks awesome and what a great idea to take a pic of your little girl in every room. Enjoy her while she is this age...before you know it she will be off to college and then out on her own. My oldest "little" girl just turned 25...ouch!!!!

  8. This is the sink that is capable to perform the tasks that the other sinks are too small for. In some cases the laundry is going to be cramped for space but it should always be possible to at least include a corner utility sink somewhere in the room.

  9. The interiors looks spacious and also the basement which can be used as stock room. By the way, I wonder if you have some Etched Glass in your kitchen and bathroom areas.
