As some of you may remember we were going to be moving to Portland, OR starting about this time last year.
The BG had been informed that they were cutting his department with the city. So he found a job in Portland.
Then we found out that we were unable to move until our youngest daughter was officially adopted. (She is now!)
After that, it changed almost daily whether we were going to move or not. So I just stopped talking about it because it was so very confusing. I told the BG to tell me when it was over, and where we were going to be living.
THEN it was decided that we would DEFINITELY be moving at the end of December.
About a week before we were to move, the city offered him his dream job.
SHEW…pretty close to the wire huh?
So now we are staying in Michigan.
Our lease is up on the town house at the end of the month, so we started looking for houses to rent or possibly buy.
I made a wish list of things our new home must have:
1. A dining room. I had missed having a dining room soooooo badly these last two years in the townhouse.
2. LOTS of windows. I need way more light than we have had here.
3. It had to have enough rooms for me to have a sewing room of course!
Well we found a home that fit the bill last week and are set to move in on April 1st!
This home is available to rent or buy, but after much discussion we decided to rent the home for a year and find out if we like it.
I’ll take some before and after pics when we start to move in.
Now I needed to make a new wish list! Things I wanted to buy for the new place.
I have checked a couple off the list, while others will remain just a wish! LOL
We purchased two new living room chairs from Target. They have a great deal going on 15% off PLUS free shipping!! They should be here tomorrow :
So yesterday we packed the kids into the minivan and drove to Ikea near Ann Arbor Michigan.
OH MY GOSH this store is so much fun isn’t it?
We bought six new dining room chairs:
NOW I have 2 last things on my wish list!
Have you seen the kitchen appliances from Big Chill?
I have been drooling over these for a couple years!! Unfortunately I don’t have the $10,000 it would take to deck my kitchen out in this retro coolness. What color would you choose?
I would also like to find a nice butcher block table for the kitchen:
