Isn't moving soooooooo much fun? To recap our move, read this little post here.
Since we've moved in, we had high hopes of quickly painting every room, buying new furniture and maybe even getting a head start of making some changes to the kitchen like countertops and flooring. (Real sexy stuff, I know.)
However, in my whopping one year of ownership, I've learned a few valuable lessons and not completed half of those projects.
1) We have a narrow driveway so I must pay attention as I back out my Mazda 3 even though I want to ram it into the house to get a new car.
2) There are kids everywhere! So, I need to be careful as I back out of the driveway.
3) Money doesn't grow on trees in the backyard so we have to be selective in our purchases seeing as you have all these new fees like house insurance and ridiculous expensive water and heating bills.
But, we did make two key purchases that make me smile everyday since we've taken ownership of the little bungalow.
I bow down to the snow thrower. It makes the BF's life a hell of a lot easier to clear the driveway so I don't fall down and bust my ass from the garage to the house.

And, a brand new queen bed! No more elbowing each other in the middle of the night or pushing each other around. Just sound sleeping for both of us.
