We got out settlement date in the mail this past week - Dec 9th!! It'll be here before we know it! The tile was put in the bathrooms and laundry, the whole house was painted, and our granite was installed. We are so happy with the color!
We STILL don't have siding on the house, but it was delivered over the weekend. We are hoping to see it up this week! Once we have siding, I'll update the pictures :)
We took advantage of some MAJOR pre-holiday sales. Ashley furniture was having a half off sale and the couch/love seat we wanted was already half off. We ended up paying 1500 for a couch, loveseat, and 2 end tables, free delivery, plus a 5 yr warranty that covers pet stains and tears (my dog is allowed on the furniture!). Every single seat reclines and it's super cozy.
We also bought a washer/dryer set. It's a platinum Samsung front loader - originally $1599.00 a piece. After sales and discounts, we got them for $693.00 a piece (pretax). WOW!
I can't wait to go black Friday shopping!! We are hoping to get just as good of a deal on our fridge and microwave.
