Things we've crossed off the checklist over the last 7 days:
1. MOVING DAY. Yes...Our state of residence has changed. Yeaaa!! We had a surprise phone call last weekend that our movers could come on a Sunday...lucky for us this meant we could get everything cleaned and hit the road sooner rather than later...no offense La Crosse, but I'll take a lake house location any day over a condo on the 'island' in the middle of the mighty Mississippi. Our belongings will be living in the garage of our new casa for the summer until we can completely move in. Seeing as our new residence is a total construction zone, we'll be spending our summer in limbo until expected completion in August. In the meantime, we enjoy checking in every day to see the progress.
2. LAKE HOUSE PROJECTS. The crew painting the dock. What. A. Project. It was nice to have several people helping to make the process less time-consuming and stressful. We finished up in about 2-3 hours. T thinks he could hire out as long as there is a beer involved as payment. We also helped my grandma to get some new mulch and flowers to spruce up the landscaping for the summer.
3. NEW BIKES. Soooooo exciting. T & I have been considering investing in new bikes for a long time. After getting fed up of hearing the constant "walking is sooo boring" or "walking isn't a workout", (not true at all by the way), we are now officially proud new owners of not only bikes, but also snazzy new bike helmets to help keep us safe. If you know T's track record, safety for new toys that move fast is a must.
NOTE: This is not our kitchen, just an example of what the countertop will look similar to.
4. COUNTERTOPS. Just when you think you have it all figured out...We got a call that the countertop we chose for our kitchen island was not going to be large enough to be a single solid piece, and would need to have a seam to make it work. Not too crazy about that idea, we made a trek to the granite store to see what our choices were. Good news...we found a completely different option that has a more marbled look that we like even better for our new home.
