the past 2 weeks

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

A lot has gone on in the last 2 weeks - and I haven't blogged about any of it!

my birthday. It was the 29th. I'm now 26. I don't really know what to think about that. Mike and I went out for a very nice dinner at a place we had never been. It was great, I'm sure we will be going back for the next special occasion.

new job. I put in my 2 week notice at the bank. That bank just wasn't for me - I'm not into the whole corporate side, you need to work on $xxx,xxx (sometimes $x,xxx,xxx) worth of loans or else. I'm not a personal banker anymore; I accepted a job at an employee owned bank where you have to start at the bottom - part-time teller. I really enjoy tellering, so I think it will be a nice change. The part time kind of excites me. I can have time to DO things during the week. I can clean the house, do laundry, work out, sew, blog, go to the dentist, etc. I start TODAY! :)

bedroom remodel. It's complete....for the most part. All we have to do is replace the windows, and repaint the 3 doors and we are DONE.

new windows. We did it, we bought new windows. :) It was a big purchase but I'm glad to get the ball rolling on what will be a long process. See, we have a lot of windows.....26 to be exact. And all of them need replaced. All I see are $$$$. So we started off with 4. It's a good start. :) The windows are waiting patiently, in the basement. I can't wait to put them in and be able to open, shut, and clean with ease. Only 22 more to go....

Here are some photos of what we've done to the room in the past 2 weeks.

All the trim and shoe molding in place and painted.




The built-ins are just waiting on the two cabinet doors that will hid the bottom 2 shelves. Do you see
what I see????

Our hidden outlets!! I can't wait to start using them. It was totally Mike's idea. :)

Our new closet system. :) I just starting putting our clothes in here yesterday and I got to thinking - this is the first time in 2-1/2 years of marriage that Mike's and my clothes are in the same closet. Our final step of co-habitation. :)
