I'll be back later with pictures from my weekend (cute nieces and delicious food!) but here's something that happened while I was gone:
The hot tub is gone! The hot tub came with the house when we bought it (despite our efforts against that). While hot tubs are fun, I really didn't want the maintenance or expense of them, and Dave isn't a huge fan of sitting in them. We decided to give it to our realtor and her husband as a thank-you for all the help they gave us in the house searching/buying process, and because we became friends with them and liked them! The only catch was they had to remove it - we don't have a truck or the tools for it. But Saturday morning they came and took it away! I'm so happy it's gone!! And I really hope they enjoy it!
Now Dave and I are debating what to do with the space. Any ideas?
