Putting the House Together

So we've been working long and hard on our house, (well sort of, haha more like slow and steady) and I think it's finally starting to come together! It's been a rough process getting it here though so I thought I'd show you some updates along the way. First, Randy insisted that we put in recessed can lights because it would look SOO much better than a regular lighted fan. Haha I swear he can never do things the easy way. :) So during conference mind you, he took it upon himself to cut out holes in our new ceiling to install these beauties. I must say though, even though it made a mess and looked like a recent snow storm in our living room that he left for me to clean up while he went to priesthood, it actually looks quite nice! We had trouble with the light strobing at first, but now that we've got the right light bulbs, they look awesome and there is no more strobe! Yay! So here's some pics of my handsome husband making a mess. Haha

We also, if you'll notice from the pictures above, had been living with nothing but a chair and lovesack in our front room for like 3 weeks because my husband refused to employ our green couches in our new house. His theory was, if we never brought it in, it would take less time to get a new one! Well he was right, I finally got sick of it and decided we could splurge on a couch. So we were on our way to go get one when Randy's mom called and said their neighbors were having a garage sale next door and they had a sectional out there for $300 that would be perfect! So we went and checked it out, and it WAS perfect! So we bought it and brought it home very excited to have a new couch. That was when we discovered this...

They had dogs!!!!! Boy let me tell you, that thing was covered in hair. When I told mom she said "Gross take it back!" But alas, it was too good a deal, so instead we spent about 20 hours with a lint brush getting off all the hair, vacuuming all inches of it, and then steam cleaning it to get out the stench and dandruff. It was so gross! Randy left some of the concentrated water in the steam cleaner for a day and about died when he opened it to rinse it out.

Ew! We emptied that thing of water just like this about 15 times. Yuck!

Anyways, we got it MOSTLY done, we're just finishing up a few cushions.
