I am hoooooooome! After an incredibly wonderful visit to my favorite city on earth, New York City, for the past three days, I made it back to Louisville last night…just in time to go out with Kevin to watch Valpo WIN AT THE VERY LAST SECOND! It was amazing. (It was not amazing when the lady sitting next to us at B-dubs asked what high school we were cheering for…get it together, Kentucky.)
New York posts will commence tomorrow, but for now…house stuff!
A quick trip to Ikea a couple of weeks ago left us with a small table to put our Dish TV box on and DVDs in since our TV is mounted above our fire place.
Ikea makes it so much harder than it needs to be. (I still love you, Ikea.)
Kevin’s mom gave us a set of shovels, and we needed them badly.
While my parents gave us the most awesomest cooler on the planet. (Kevin gave me permission to post this picture, but he wanted me to say that he’s only wearing my pink sweatshirt because all of his are dirty.) (Uh huh, sure.)
After our slow start to the morning, we ventured out to buy a couch (!!!!!) that we finally settled on after visiting seven different furniture stores at least three times each. We’re indecisive, obviously. After our couch purchase, we headed out to Lowe’s to grab a few items for the house (air filters, you know, the norm) and then Target to do some serious damage to the wallet (curtain rods, shower curtain, etc. etc.). We also ordered patio furniture from Target.com, which we’re the MOST excited about!
Since it was so beautiful outside, we couldn’t pass up sitting out on our patio which we love oh-so-much. We decided to pour some margs and make chicken quesadillas on the grill.
(PS It was me that broke this chair by sitting on it…lay off the margs, Gab.) (PPS Thanks for the glasses, Katie! We use them all the time!)
Once we cleaned up dinner and our classy patio furniture, we hung up a curtain rod in our bedroom because the curtains we ordered should be arriving soon! Seriously, these trash bag drapes need. to. go.
(Kevin also wanted me to mention that he cut down all of the tree branches touching our house today…we just didn’t snap any pictures of it, but it really happened.)
All in a day of home ownership.
Back tomorrow with NYC recap(s)!
