Flashback Friday ~ September 2004

Today we closed on our new house!! We are so excited for more space and a change of neighborhood, but it does make me nostalgic about our first days in this home. We were first time home buyers, a young couple with a baby. It was a very exciting time. We had a tiny budget, so we were thrilled when we got this house for a steal. It was in great condition, but we quickly found things to work on: paint, baseboards, flooring, landscaping . . . .


We knew before we moved in that carpet in the dining room was a dumb idea, so once we had saved up a bit after the initial paint and getting settled in the new house, the laminate flooring was the first renovation we did. Here I am, ripping up the old flooring:


And here's Isaiah (15 months old) watching the installer finishing with the new flooring:



Here's to more exciting new-home times ahead!

Oh, how exciting! Congrats!! I can't believe that was 2004 when you moved into that house. It seems like just yesterday.

I'm also wondering when you're moving in. We're coming donw for sure in May, maybe you'll have some extra room for a sleepover.... :) Make sure you post pics of your new house too!

We have to move in within the next 60 days. However, the sellers haven't found anything else yet, and our house hasn't sold yet, so we're not sure when in the next 60 days.

Colleen, we'd love to have you anytime! I did have a link to the pictures of the new house that was listed by a realtor, but now that the house has sold, it's been taken down. We'll post pics as we make it ours, though :)
