    It's perfect for making it just how you want it, your VERY OWN nest. Not so big you can't take care of things yourself, lot's of options to make that yard and cute little deck your very own oasis, and I love the hardwood in the (I'm assuming?) living room.

    Congrats!
    A friend of mine just bought her first "house" (a condo).
    I told her I'd be part of the Painting Squad and MovingStuffIn Squad and that she better have a Condo Warming Party pret-ty soon.
    Exciting times!

    It's pergo It is throughout the entire house, for that I am so glad. I might put some really nice carpet in my bedroom though, we will see.

    The kitchen and the bathroom are super awesome, I just love them.

    I'll be much closer to friends and family too now, only 15-20 mins instead of an hour. And that shortened drive time to show grounds at 1 am when braiding is fabulous!

    It's really cute and sounds like a great buy for you all-around. So exciting to be starting off in a new place, especially if it's your first purchase.

    The best part is you are now closest to ME! I hadn't seen the pics of the inside. Sparse, but a clean slate for you to do however you like. Nice new appliances - yay!

    We had to get a new stove. The only - and I mean ONLY - mfg that makes the downdraft required for the island is Jenn-Aire. A top of the line Jenn-Aire at that. I still feel like puking (the little mad guy went at the top instead of here)

    Congrats! It's very cute!
    Get an inspection, and be there for it. Ask the inspector questions if he says something that you aren't sure of. Bring a tape measure and paper, and draw out the rooms/measurements. Then get some graph paper and draw out rooms, usung each square as 1 foot. You can then figure out furniture placement at home, so it saves time when moving, especially if you hire people to move big stuff and pay by the hour.

    Don't make any large purchases or apply for any credit offers between now and closing. Not even the store offers where they tell you, "you'll get an extra 15% off if you apply for this card". Don't close out any credit card accounts prior to closing. If you deposit any money into a bank acct, make a copy of the check and dep slip, or document what it was for. They need to be able to track any money coming in.

    When packing- since it's a short move, you can buy styrofoam plates, and put them in between your regular plates and place in a box, to move. It cushions them, and you can reuse the styrofoam plates. You don't end up with newspaper ink all over them afterwards, either.

    HEY! I don't have good poster/post recall but I recognize that kitchen! LOL

    That's a cute little house, I love how it just sits there like "here I am."

    Love the floors, love the kitchen, it's a blank slate. I say get to pinterest and start making it your own!

    I love moving, I see potential in everything, it's so invigorating to do new things!

    That yard will take some work but I am going for a no lawn approach. I plan on starting by putting in stuff and expanding out, starting with hydrangeas, barberry, forsythia and a ceonothus hedge.

    Here is my teeny tiny fabulous house to be (hopefully God willing!). Oh, keep in mind, I didn't even want to look at it because I hated the way it looked in these pics LOL!!! But, it's light, bright, brand spankin new, all pergo floors and nothing but a big landscape for my decorating delights hurray!!

    Credit where credit is due!

    I just love JanM's contributions. Practical advice and it seems she has "been there, done that" with everything.

    And I didn't post the color palette site. Some else did.

    Last, cute house! That looks like a place some cats could live in.

    Also, come down to Portland's IKEA and I'll meet your there to help you spend your money wisely. That store is a good time.

    I love it! It looks adorable, and with some landscaping it will look wonderful. Take your time and plan the outside, buy on sale at the end of the season, and you can save big. I would take the little tree right by the house down though, and it might be small enough to replant further away if you want to keep it.

    Don't rush into things, and you can shop around more to get a great deal. If you need window coverings, then go to the big box store and get the temp window blinds that stick to the window. The 3 ft wide ones are good, because they are long enough to cover the entire shade area, and you can overlap and layer for big windows. I've found the best deal for faux wood blinds are the people who are independent, and usually include installation with the price. The big box stores do not really custom make theirs, but chop premade to fit, and charge as much for installation as they do for the blinds. You want to make sure the temp blinds are up during move in, so you can take your time unpacking and cleaning up mess.

    Jenners, I am about 30 mins closer, from Yelm to Tacoma . Big save on drive time for me!

    MVP, your link with all the different cool backsplashes and kitchen decorating ideas!

    Jan, I'm going to pick up cheapo Venetian blinds from Walmart LOL! And yes, I am definitely going to be doing some fall planting! Then in Feb the trees go in hurray! I have decided on holly beneath the windows in the back ( I have the ultra thick gloves to trim them and know how), that will go in first. Barberry out front, then hydrangeas...then we will see!
