Here's a quick house tour.
I put this flower pot together as my mothers day present. I loved picking out the flowers and made Jon lock the front door while I planted them this morning. It's a nice neighborhood, but close enough to the freeway that we hear it whenever the windows are open. We're already used to it.
Here's the front - we're on the lower level.
And here's the view from our steps...you can see Jon's red corolla at the top of the street, which is where we park. I guess that's just normal in this complex.
Here's the girls cleaning up dinner.
I love having some of the pottery my sister made me out on display. It makes me happy.
Here's the patio. The washer and dryer are in this outside closet. It's so different to get used to things being outside that usually wouldn't be - because the weather is AMAZING. I've been surprised how cold it gets in the evening / morning even on hot days. It's nice, but I'll definitely be wearing a sweater more then I realized I would.
The kids have all been sleeping in the same room...it looks like we're running a hostile.
And the master bathroom is more like a closet then anything. Luckily there's a more normal sized bathroom as well that's in the hallway.
So, there's stuff to get used to and we are. I like it here. It's small but it works and there's always the beach!
