I'm Legit Now

Gotta lot going on, but thought I'd share a few pics!

Pre-race food! As I mentioned a few posts ago, my friend Matt and I raced in a 10k about 2 weeks ago. This is the meal we had the night before. Carb-ilicious! And of course vegetables cause we wanna be healthy. The morning of, we got together at 5:45 am (ugh I was tired) and ate bagels with peanut butter.

We also managed to snap the photo above. The race went fine, but man it was tough.

But we survived!

Onto the house! This is the kitchen on the day that I closed. As you can see there is just a hood above the range and no microwave in sight. Well, Eric is an awesome handyman and decided that he would put an over the range microwave in himself (with the help of his father).

The After shot:

I think it looks great! And those fingerprints all over it are so endearing.... (Ok, you caught me, I have no idea how to clean them off yet). We also got a stainless steel fridge, but I haven't taken a picture of it yet. I can say this though, it's gorgeous (yes, it has fingerprints all over it too...)!

As you can see in the background, Eric put up most of the blinds too. And yes, I actually did some work. I put up the shower curtain rod!

And I put the first food item in the pantry -- a bottle of olive oil leftover from college! =]

Well, that's it for now, but the big table reveal is coming soon!


Susan said...'s a tip on the stainlees steel cleaning...NEVER use Windex, 409, or anything like that. There are specifically stainless steel "wipes" that I use for our fridge, stove and dishwasher. They come in a canister just like baby wipes. I buy them at Target.

Thanks for the tip!! I still hadn't figured out what to do for the appliances. I'll pick some up next time I go to Target. =]
