3 days!!

We have 3 days left until settlement Friday! Woohoo! I can't do a count down like others have done because we are looking forward to EVERYTHING...having our own space again, not sharing a room with 2 cats & a dog, unpacking our belongings from storage (they've been there for 10 months!), getting back to a routine...oh I could go on and on.

Our PM emailed over the weekend to ask that our walk through be changed to Friday morning. He assured me that if anything needed to be fixed, he'd be able to get it done before the quality inspection 2-4 weeks after closing. I'm sure he'll come through. He's been awesome so far

We bought the last of the appliances yesterday. They'll be delivered Saturday. We bought a KitchenAid side-by-side stainless steel fridge and a Whirlpool mircowave (with the clean release coating on the inside). The KitchenAid fridge was our #1 pick and the Whirlpool Gold was our #2. We've been watching them for weeks but neither has gone on sale & they were only $100 price difference. We saved 15% with the friends & family special at Sears. It was still a little more than we wanted to pay, but we figure we'll have it for a long time and we got amazing deals on everything kinda evened out

We are very unhappy with our "upgraded" oven. It's so ugly. It's mostly black plastic with stainless accents. It looks super cheap. I'm nervous that my husband will break the plastic knobs the first time he uses them. Hopefully sales rep will be able to do something. I'd even be willing to pay the difference for another oven. It's the only thing that we are really unhappy with...

The last time we were at the house was right after Thanksgiving. Everything was still dirty and covered up with paper or protective wrap. We love the landscaping they did and can't wait to see everything clean & beautiful inside!

Our dog, Decklan, really enjoyed the warm weather! He's very excited about his new digs!
