New roomies, garbage theif, free finds, and updates!

Being a home owner has been absolutely WONDERFUL! I wake up every day feeling so thankful and blessed to have such a great place! 

Richelle and her doggy Fio have moved in. My house is no longer quiet and lonely. Our rugs never stay in the same place! :)

Kobe and Fio LOOOOVE to look out the windows together...

And someone was breaking into our trash... I found out who it was......

Yeah... that was a piece of pizza.

I was going through our garage and I found this awesome mirror. It is solid wood and extremely heavy... so I have not hung it yet. (Ryan?)

Also, Ryan, Chad, and I were on our way to Ry's grandma's after church a couple of weeks back and we drove by a buffet table with a "Take me, FREE" sign on it. Ryan points and says "Hey, that looks like something you would like." Not knowing that I would actually like it and really want to stop and get it. So I yell. "TURN AROUND!" Which we did, then Ryan chose to drive right on by it again. I spent the next two hours trying to convince him why I NEEDED it and that we should totally go back and get it. He, however, still did not want to get it. After many convincing arguments, I finally got him to (reluctantly) agree.  We went to pick it up. I was in loooove! :) And once he saw it in its new home, he finally admitted that it is perfect! I think it may be antique, but what do I know... I just love it!

And Now, some updates on the house...
