We're Moving

The beginning of last week Mike and I signed a lease for a new place starting in the middle of July. Our current place isn't bad, its big and open, but I hate living in an apartment complex, and it was time for a change. We found a townhome that is built into a little hill on the edge of town. The hill is an important feautre because it means that we have the whole top level of the townhouse and you have to drive down and around the little hill to get to the unit downstairs, so it will be like having our own house.

The new place has 3 bedrooms and one bathroom, very large kitchen, fireplace, vaulted ceilings in every room, a huge front patio, a back deck, and a garage which neither of us has had for years. It also has a new front loading washer and dryer, which excited me to no end because our current W/D is old, rusty and hardly works. The only downside is that there is no central air conditioning (and that is a requirement for Michigan summers), but its heavily shaded because it backs up to a little forest, and a guy from my work is giving us an air conditioner. There are also numerous windows on every single wall of the house so cross ventilation is going to be a snap. Best of all, its got character, and you know how much I love that in a living space.

I can't wait to move!

When you're at work a few extra hours longer than scheduled and you are ready to scream, once again, Craigslist to the rescue. This is hilarious.

Random Pic

I don't think I've posted any wedding pictures yet, and since it just passed our six month anniversary I thought I would. I just got this picture from Mike's mom while we were up there for Easter, and I love it, althuogh it does make me look naked from the waist up, which I am not.
