Our Home In Lubbock

Well we finally moved into the duplex last night, well we aren't done moving into it but at least we aren't at the Extended Stay any more!

Here are some pictures of the place,

Our garage, you walk through the gate to the left to get to our front door.

The gate you will walk through and our front door.

And this little furball will be waiting right here for you so he can get in his daily barking.

Half of the living room and a closet

Other half of the living room we have a fireplace, which kind of baffles me cause isn't Texas suppose to be too hot for an indoor fire?

Our kitchen, I have come to the sad realization that my Kitchen Aid mixer won't fit under those cupboards :(! I don't know where to keep it yet.

Our dining area with a little counter, not sure what do with the counter my chairs are too tall for it, maybe I can put them on the other side.

Area for the washer and dryer that we left back home. :) Anyone in Salt Lake in need of a washer and gas dryer???? Let me know!

The hallway to the master bedroom, and off to the left is a spare bedroom, and just as you enter the hallway to the right is one of the sinks for the Jack and Jill bathroom.

The spare bedroom, I hope to keep this clear of clutter and put a bed in it for those guests that come to visit! :)

The master bedroom, we haven't gotten the bed frame out of the storage unit yet.

Our closet (I have much to learn about photography I left the blinds open thats why that spot is blinding you :). )

The sink off of the master bedroom

The shower and the commode between the two sink stations.

I think that covers everything, oh I didn't take a picture of the inside of the garage. It looks like a normal one car garage. So we think the house will work out well for us, we have to sell our couches though as they are too wide to fit through the door...hmmm probably should have just sold most of our furniture before we left. Oh well. A
I have met one of the Texas natives today.....this morning I got up to make Dave a lunch before he went to work, I flipped on the light and found a cockroach right in the middler of our dinning floor! Yuck! It was a pretty big sucker, well at least to me I have never seen one before. They are hard to kill, it took Dave a few good whaps with his shoe. Needless to say we are calling the landlord to get this place sprayed though I have a feeling I will probably see another one before our stay is over.
