Our home

*** Added later.... By the way, some people asked, our home is a townhome which is very nice, plus we hope to rent it out when we grow out of it in 5-7 years (probably) and we will then buy a house. These townhomes have playgrounds, and soon basketball courts or something of the sort, and a clubhouse (which has exercise equipment, kids playroom, kitchen, living room/projector to have parties). Plus we don't have to remove snow, take care of the lawn or anything like that... so we are thrilled!!! ***

Welcome to our home!!! Please remember that we are still unpacking and finding where we want our things to go. We also still have touch ups to make (i.e. the doors need to be painted white like the trim) and touch ups on the walls, as well as correctly hang the blinds (long story) and still hand pictures and stuff, but we have only been here for a few weeks, so I think we are doing pretty good. As time goes on and as we save up more money we will also be buying other things to beautify the place (i.e. barstools, new table/chairs, curtains... the list goes on) but really that could be a few years. Enjoy the pics. Hopefully you can see things, it is hard to get everything in the picture but I tried.

Fun, Rachel! Is it a townhome? It looks really nice. It's a nice upgrade from those DT dorms, huh? It was good to hear your voice. More people should give video tours of their houses.
