Big Giant Bed Arrives....

...Yes, the Big Giant Bed arrived. Along with some other things, like:
1) A new kitchen
2) A new chimney
2) A new bathroom
3) A second new bathroom
4) A baby.

Yep, we've been busy! Which I hope in part explains why I haven't posted for over a year.

But, for those of you still wondering, here is a picture of the bed.

Big Giant Bed - It's like a hotel room every day!

Don't worry, I'll get to the baby in the next post. Here are some pictures of the kitchen:

And, it case you were wondering if this was all part of a big, two year plan to get a baby, you're right! We starting thinking about adding to our family during the winter of 2006-2007 but wanted to move to a bigger house first. My sister gave us some wise advise - little ones, being little, don't take up much room. Stay in your current house (we love the neighborhood if not the long commute to work) and save your pennies. The only way I was staying (and the only way to eventually sell the house) was to redo the kitchen and the two main baths. They were all original to the house and past their prime. The "Original Kitchen" pic probably speaks for itself! So, basically, we "nested" for 18 months. Thanks too to my sister for the giant "Clean House"-like purge of the basement (had to make room for the baby stuff! Example: 8 boxes of Miami U college stuff became 1 30-gallon tote) and to our brother-in-law for helping fluff the baby's room and our third bath. I think we're done with the home improvement efforts for a while! And, given the housing market, we're definitely staying put for now.
