Commence list-making!

OK, who am I kidding, I'm constantly making lists. One of life's greatest joys is making lists ... and then crossing stuff off! (Oh, if only I were joking. Hello crazy Type A lady.)

We close two weeks from today. Among the things crossed off the list:
-- Movers arranged
-- Garbage pick-up set up
-- Verizon scheduled for Fios
-- Appraisal done and looks good
-- Home insurance arranged

And we should (knock on wood, emailing again to confirm) be in the clear with NVR for closing.

Lots more to do (packing, blind-buying, garage door opener purchase/installation, other utilities, etc.) but we're getting close!

At the house, the to-do list includes painting, wall-patching/touchups, a few electrical things, carpet and lawn.

Here's a few more pics:

Double wall ovens (they're not that blue - it's a protective film)


Toilets and sinks are in! And working -- I even tested one ;)

Railings polyurethaned.

Laundry tub in.

Sink and faucet (with built-in sprayer) in.

Took this one for Tammigirl. Big air return -- with filter. 


  1. WJ! The railing are gorgeous! No, they are HOTT! I love the slope!

  2. I really love your granite... it's so unique and looks great with the darker cabinets. I am totally with you on the list making. Sometimes I write things I have already done just for the satisfaction of crossing it off the list. Lol.

  3. WJ I love the staircase and the two different size kitchen sinks

  4. lists r exciting...we have 3 weeks and i cross off at least 2 things a day lol....can u imagine how long our list is??!

  5. Love the double wall oven. We have the same cabinets and love them.

  6. I'm just glad to have the whole filter thing cleared up. (Or as cleared up as it can be)

    Congratulations on your beautiful home - you'll be in before you know it!

  8. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

  10. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A design like yours
