It’s official

Our house has been “warmed”. That is what the Mister & I have been saying all weekend after our wonderful house warming party potluck. I guess this means we are now open for visitors.

Of course, diet we have already been open for visitors and have been entertaining. We don’t fuss terribly about the cleanliness of our home before people come over – but at least most of the boxes are off the main floor now. It was a busy week and weekend before people showed up on Saturday night for the party and I wish I took more photos of the place before 40 people got the grand tour and tracked dirt across my shinning kitchen floor (the weather was perfect so we spent most of the time in the backyard – and no, clinic I did not make people take off their shoes when they came in and out of the house). Instead I will leave you with the before and after of our front entrance. In our apartment our entrance was a bit of a dark dungeon with coats stuffed into the front closet (no where else to put them) and stuff piled on the stairs at all times. Once you got upstairs you promptly forgot about the entrance and so it was rarely cleaned. I really didn’t want that to happen here so I took out bar out of the closet ASAP and we went and got some coat hooks – enough for the basics and some visitors (big and little) but not so many that we will be tempted to throw every coat we own into the closet.

How was your weekend?
