We got our letter today with all of our closing information so now I need to get busy on that stuff. We are having our final walkthrough on March 3 and closing on March 7. Less than a month! I was hoping to have the closing be on a Friday so we could stay there (sans furniture) over the weekend.....just something about staying in the house the first night we're able to. Oh well, maybe we'll just stay there on the 7th anyway and I'll run to my other home to get ready in the morning :)
In other news...Levin Furniture was having a super sale this weekend so we made our first purchase!
I had been eyeing this set for about 2 months so I was really happy to get it for a good deal. It's hard to tell in the picture but it is a counter-height table and it is dark brown wood. We also got the bench. Plenty of seating for just the two of us! Here is a link to the website for a better look
We also checked out a bedroom set that we both really liked, but without being able to finance things until the mortgage is finalized we decided to wait on this one. (Plus what good is a king-sized set if you don't have a king-sized mattress yet? Priorities...)
Mattresses can be ridiculously expensive. After falling in love with some really expensive ones, we went to my brother's house to watch the superbowl. He and his girlfriend just bought a king mattress from Menards this week for about 1/3 of the cost of what we were looking at. Of course we checked it out as soon as we got there and decided we are definitely going to Menards! It was soooo comfy I could have stayed there all evening!
