This past weekend Brad and I did what we could at the house after four days of rain...which was obviously nothing outside. Instead, we went to Lowe's and bought a wireless doorbell (with upgraded button because the plastic one was ugly) and some blinds. I am lucky that he is handy because even though he said both of these were "simple" tasks, I know not everyone's husband could do it and for that I am grateful. He was happy to hear that I did not want to doorbell that plays 60+ different tunes, including Christmas music. All I wanted was a simple single and double-tone bell...even the "Westminster 8 tone" was too much for me. Brad also put up one set of blinds in our bedroom so we can decideif they are the ones we like or not. While we love our Andersen double pane, inside grids, tilt in windows, they are not deep enough to mount blinds inside the window frame. So, they have to be mounted on the trim across the top of the window. Thank goodness he is also patient because I am more concerned with seeing the mounting bracket than how the blinds look. It's a girl thing I think. Have you ever made your own curtains? Suggestions for doing so??

Rain rain, Go away

Dear Weather Gods, Please stop raining in Maryland. I am appreciative that the snow is staying up north, but the rain isn't helping our contractor finish the exterior work on our house. He is doing all that he can while you give us a break. Do I need to do a rain dance for better weather? At least last week was productive - we got a new driveway, electricity and the plumbing was finished. We also got our porch railings installed :). I will upload pics soon.

Back in Action

Well, it is now October which hopefully will be the month we move into our house! Below are a few updated pictures since we are getting closer and closer. We are supposed to have electricity tomorrow which will allow me to vacuum all the carpet fibers everywhere and our driveway should be poured by the end of the week. People keep asking us what the holdup is, but it keeps raining here and the mud is slowing us down!
