The Bees are Homeowners!

We're excited to finally announce we've found our hive! We got the keys today and couldn't be happier (despite this photo of us signing our lives away this morning).

This is my stress face

Here we are before walking in the door for the first time:

And the house!

Thanks for sticking with me through the house hunt - I have plenty more pictures to come!

Flashback Friday

I'm about to lose it with mortgage people, so I'm transporting myself to simpler times.

Just found this gem while packing:

And these old sorority Bid Day photos. Do any of you have creative ideas for framing these?

True Life: I Re-finished a Coffee Table

I woke up on Sunday morning and decided I needed a hand sander to get the job done on this coffee table we found at Goodwill.

Me and my new bestie

Ta-Da! I'm really loving how it turned out. I'll update some better pictures soon (like how it looks in my new house!)

Washers and Dryers, Oh My!

Just a few weeks until we move into our new house, and the one thing that it needs (and I've never had to buy before) is a washer and dryer. In fact, I'm completely lost when it comes to buying appliances. I've walked around Home Depot/Lowe's/Best Buy/Insert your appliance store here for the last few weekends and I'm still not sure of what I'm looking for.

I hear that the front load washer and dryers have issues with smell, and that you can't add to the wash cycle once it's started (something I do all the time.) And if possible, we'd love to get one with a steam cycle so that we can throw clothes in before going out to get some of the wrinkles out.

Here are a few of my laundry room Pinterest lust pics:

Suggestions are appreciated!

House Update

Quick, exciting update: We're buying a house! We're looking to close at the end of this month. More details to follow, but here's a sneak peek of our new sunroom (which I'm obsessed with.)

Also, today is my and Mr. Bee's 8-year dating anniversary. I know that once you get married you usually stop counting the boyfriend/girlfriend anniversaries, but 4th of July is the perfect anniversary. Fireworks every year!

Love this guy:

8 years ago!
Happy Independence Day!
