As stated above, we made a huge decision that long ago. The most expensive to date. Three years and nine hours ago, we bought our humble abode that we now call home. . .or Casa de Tow.
It was a leap of faith that seemed scary at first but I now know was the best decision we’ve ever made. I couldn’t possibly imagine my life anywhere else or in a town that has more than one stop light.
I tried to find a few pictures of the house and came across us painting the inside as well as our celebratory Panther Pizza dinner our first night spent in our new house.
A few things have changed since purchasing our house. . .the kitchen went from khaki to green to a green glaze on the green to finally a texture “Butter Cookie” cream. I won’t even go into detail on the other rooms of the house, but our room and Ellie’s room are the only ones that have stayed the same from the beginning. . .until Ellie gets her new bedding. . .get your paint brush Nana. . .
Another change from three years ago would be including Ellie. Emma was our honeymoon souvenir and Ellie was our “we bought our first house” souvenir. Emma’s playroom wasn’t one for long seeing as how we got pregnant within a year of purchasing our home.
Personally I have lost 48 pounds in three years. That includes gaining and losing the 18 pounds from my second pregnancy (since giving birth to Emma, I’m down 60 pounds!!).
So much has changed (including my hair color and tattoos), but life just keeps getting better. Dustin’s new manager position starts in January and with it comes added stress, but I know he’s ready for it. I married a man that is constantly wanting to better himself and improve his life. I’ve learned to go along with him (with a little bit of my own opinions) because he knows what he’s doing.
Who knows what the next three years and nine hours hold for us. But hopefully kisses will still solve the world’s problems. . .or at least a hurt knee.
I love painting! Look at the cabinets, they’re brown? And the counter tops are orange? And the wall color is khaki?? And what’s with those baseboards???
Here’s Ellie. . .no wait, that’s Emma right before she turned 2-years-old. What a big helper?!? Papa was in charge of keeping Emma entertained.
I don’t know if you can tell, but this is the face of indecision. What’s with this color???
Ahhhh, the student is learning from the teacher. Seriously, I wonder how long it will take before Dustin kills me???
