Our abode

I know my grandparents and aunts and uncles would like to probably see where we live so I took some pictures of our place. Most of you will probably never come visit us, so at least this way you can take a gander at our abode.

Just if you were wondering what that green lawn is doing in the photos... it's ours! It is actually pretty cool to have a front lawn with tons of full grown trees shading it (and no, we don't have to mow it).

When we moved into our place the walls were painted a ghastly purple color. My sister Megan came over and helped us paint for a night. I wish I took before and after pictures because it made such a difference. Thanks Megan! Also, the people that lived in our place before us were, how do I say it... less than clean. To put it bluntly our place smelled like butt. A bottle of Febreez later and the smell is gone.

I think one of my favorite aspects of our new place is how many large windows we have that let in soooo much natural light. We love our new place and how close it is to campus!

I'm super proud of that bright blue table in the pictures too. It was a table that I found at D.I. ($10) that was an ugly brown. At first I was covering it with a table cloth, and then thought, what the heck I think I'll paint it bright blue. What do you think? I've always wanted to paint a piece of our furniture bright, but I always thought I'd regret it. Guess what? I don't, I fall in love with it more every day.

Oh my gosh, I love your new house! Not dissing the old one (because it was ghetto-fab) but I think the new place is definitely an improvement. And that blue table is rockin, I love it! I love all your decor too. I'm facinated with the whole purple walls business, it bet it looked pretty weird. I wish we could see it in person, thanks for putting pictures up for us people in far away places.

You definately have a good decorating eye. We will try to see it before you move.
Dennen I think you have made a good change in your career choice.

We bottled grape juice and have enough left over for the six of you in Logan. Ask Megan, Gosh, Rachel & Tyler if they want any. We have 12 quarts extra.

I think having natural light is one of nature's most magnificent blessings - makes one feel good all over!

I love the blue table. Whenever I see that color on a dresser or something, I love it. But I can never do that cause I always have a color on the wall. I have very colorful walls.
