new home

Thursday, January 3, 2013

being a newlywed is fun, i tell ya.

off topic.. but i'm excited to get back into blogging now that we have internet!  hopefully i can keep it up.  
2012 was not a good blogging year for me, but that's why we have new year resolutions, right?... 


we have been moving stuff into our cozy little cottage for the last few weeks and things are starting to feel more like home around here.  it's pretty great.

we are also discovering all the many quirks about our home that we... lets say we love them. yes.  we love the quirks.

our living room is nice.  it has a giant fireplace with a mantle (i never had a real fireplace growing up so this was very exciting for me.)
there are 2 light switches which turn on the main lights and the accent lighting for above the mantle... then there's another light switch by the front door.  it doesn't do anything when you flip it on and off, yet it needs to be flipped down in order for the two light switches to work?... curious..

our kitchen is lovely.  all white cabinets and a character-filled original wood floor.
the fact that we don't have a dishwasher doesn't bother me at all. actually i think the dishes get done a lot faster because of that.. nobody likes to unload or load anyway.  what kills me about our kitchen is the oven.  it beeps every few hours.  not consistently either.  sometimes for a few minutes, sometimes for a lot of minutes. and we can't figure out how to turn it off.  so that's fun.

and then there's our bedroom.  it is really cozy and fits our bedroom furniture perfectly.  i'm really happy with our dresser and where it's placed, because it covers up this mysterious vent that leads to the bathroom... haha.  one of the first days we were in our house I was in there doing something and I hear Chase, Hey honey!  I can see you from the bedroom!!  ha.  That was really funny/creepy all at once.  glad we semi-solved the problem with the dresser!

we love it here in our little cottage.  pictures will come eventually... maybe next week, maybe in a couple months.. who knows!

happy 2013 so far!

re: light switch that does nothing -- we have one that controls an outlet across the room. So we can flip on a lamp plugged into that socket without actually touching the lamp. But we have another on the other side of our entry hall that we think goes to an outlet in the office. That one remains a mystery.
