Well...I actually had a little time tonight to do some stuff I have been putting off. I took some pictures of the two rooms we painted and was going to upload them (along with the xmas decorations that I hadn't gotten around to). So after I took the pictures, I spent the next 20 minutes looking for the cord that connect the camera to the computer and haven't found it yet. :)

One of these days, I might get around to posting some pictures of the house...I almost took one of the big tv, but it looks a little out of place on top of the small tv stand (the new one we ordered hasn't arrived yet).

The plans were to go out to a big furniture mall (yes, seriously, a mall of furniture stores...only in the furniture capital of the country can you find it) on Saturday, but Eric might have to work, and Sunday it is only open for 4 hours...I mean come on, can we make it through the whole place in 4 hours. :)

I think we are getting close though, our plan was that if we didn't find anything here, we were going back to another store and order the sofa and loveseat...yeah!!!

Slowly but surely...

We took the 46 inch tv back and got the 40 and it looks so much better in the room. We spent all of Saturday furniture shopping and ordered an entertainment center for the tv. We also managed to find a table we think we really like and a sofa and love seat too. But didn't order them. I think we managed to hit 6 furniture stores on Saturday. I think we are on the right track though, finally finding things we both like and think would look good.

Eric managed to hang some more blinds up and we only have a few left to hang! He also got the two mountain bikes up off the garage floor, hanging from the ceiling now to open up some more space and bought a miter saw and a bunch of lumber to build some shelves in the garage.

It was so nice yesterday, I convinced Eric to go out on a 20mile ride outside. I think I got spoiled living in Apex, as most loops I did leaving my house were downhill/rolling the first 8+ miles, and now leaving our neighborhood we hit a monstrous hill 2.5 miles out, which I am not warmed up and ready to get out of the saddle to hurt. Not fun. Maybe it will make me better on the hills though! :)
