The countdown has begun.....

I am way overdue for an update, so here are a bunch of pics.

We are really making some great progress at the house and we are officially getting excited and anxious to move in. During lunch the other day, I created a countdown link. I was trying to explain this to Alex and he said he NEVER used these growing up, so I took a pic to show him.

Right now we are looking at around 48 days until move in day assuming there are no major issues that arise with the exterior work.

They have painted most of the house and I am LOVING the colors we chose. We looked at a bunch of paint brands but went with Benjamin Moore for all of our colors.

This one is a little blurry, but the half bath is BM "Weimeraner". We will have a biscuit colored pedestal sink and toilet. Can't wait to get everything in place!!

We picked the granite for the house and it should get installed in the next week or so!

Kitchen Granite is called Colonial Cream and we found the BEST slabs...I love love love them!!!

This is the color of the room that will eventually be the nursery. I just picked a fun color and if it doesnt work with whatever color scheme we want once we actually get pregnant, we will just repaint....but I really like it. It looks slightly green, slightly blue depending on the lighting and its called Tranquility.

There is a theme in our house and it is called --- blue. We didn't do this on purpose, but we loved these colors too much to not pick them. The pick below is the Guest Room and is a blue gray called Puritan Gray.

This is the third bedroom and its Bleeker Beige.

They started putting up lighting today and it looks SO GOOD!!!! In between these wall sconces will be a long mirror in the living room. What do you think ?!?!?

Chandelier in the dining room....we need to raise it a little bit but I think it will work great with our furniture.
Our blue master bedroom. The color is called Silver Mink. I heart it.
This is my favorite part of the house. This is the picture window from our kitchen dining area and I can just picture sitting at this table in the morning, working on bible study and watching Spencer in the backyard chasing all the squirrels.
Just a little bit of debris in the back yard.

Sorry these are all over the place. This is the granite that will be in the master bathroom. Its called Kashmir Gold.
This is the granite that will be in the upstairs bathrooms. Love it too! :)
They have tiled most of the bathrooms too. We have the same travertine throughout. This is the shower in the jack & jill bath.

So, there you go. They are going to put in granite, finish the tile work, finish painting and put up the lighting fixtures. Then they will put in flooring and all the other finishing work and then they will be moving on the exterior. Outside we will be painting the brick, replacing the gutters, siding, trim, fascia (sp) etc. Still a lot of updates to come, so stay tuned.
