I am very happy to report that Captain Husband, Sandy, Sammy and I all arrived safe and sound in El Paso this past Thursday; it was a loooooooooong road trip but we all managed to survive it without too much irreparable psychological damage (I hope). We have the keys to our new place but we've been spending our nights at a hotel near our house until our household goods arrive (should be some time today, actually--keep your fingers crossed). We've been making some progress, though; yesterday we bought some new blinds and installed them in what will become Sammy's play room and over the weekend we also managed to purchase a new mattress set, fridge, and washer and drier, which goes a long way to making our new house a home. Here are a few shots of the house in progress to tide you over in the mean time:
Yes, there is a wet bar in the living room. We're already planning a Mad Men-inspired party around it.
I'll be posting photos and such from our cross-country journey the rest of this week, so be sure to stay tuned--after all, you wouldn't want to miss giant cows and the world's largest cedar rocking chair, would you?
