So I am proud to say that the "new" medicine cabinet is painted and hung!!
Part of the reason it took me a little longer than I was expecting was this:
The dresser that is up there now is another project waiting for my attention but I am going to play musical furniture (the best part of settling into a new house) so we knew it wasn't going to go back upstairs and why we bought the other one. You will hear about that one more as I get to it!
We got new neighbors about 3 weeks ago. The house that is the mirror image of ours, on the outside at least, finally sold. We like our new neighbors. It also made me realize we hadn't really met any of the neighbors we already had. It's cold and no one really hangs out outside in the winter unless they are shoveling. And we haven't had snow, so... no neighbors. Yesterday I tried a new cookie recipe. I guess I didn't really read the recipe because it made 7 dozen cookies. What do we need 7 dozen cookies for?! So I bagged the majority of them up and started knocking on doors and playing cookie delivery lady. I found out that we have a lot of really nice neighbors. I also found out a lot of good info on the neighborhood. Apparently this was the Italian neighborhood back in the day and there are still a few older Italian couples that live here.
One of the houses that borders our back yard is adorable. It's on the small side for the neighborhood but has lots of character and charm. The couple that lives there, has lived there for 45 years. With as much moving as we have done in the last 5 years, I can't even imagine. That same lovely couple also had put this out at the curb.
It is nice to know a little more about where we are living and the people who live here. It really does seem like a nice neighborhood. I wanted to share one picture of Aleena from the other day. Her hair is getting so long and her Daddy requested either a ponytail or some pigtails since I don't usually try to put it up.
See you soon!
