So I stumbled out of bed, fed them and let them out in the yard to do their business and climbed back into bed for a couple of more hours. Today was chore day...laundry in the new front loading Frigidaire washer and dryer and vacuuming with my new Dyson vacuum. Who knew I'd ever be so excited to do household chores? EEK! Am I turning into a domestic goddess? Nah...I just like playing with my new toys!
I loaded the puggies into the car (they were so excited...what short memories they have of their 3 days in the car!) and took them to Petsmart for their spa day (nail clipping and ear cleaning). Then I brought them home and headed back out to explore the neighborhood a bit. I am SO excited that there is a Home Decorators Store here. I have loved the catalog for years and I guess two years ago they started opening actual stores. And lo and behold! There is one across the street from our new house! LOVE it! I know we'll be shopping there as we get settled into our new home, especially since it has more way more room than we've ever had before and we will need to get some new furniture, accessories and area rugs. It was so fun to see all of their stuff up close...very inspiring. Apparently they are now owned by Home Depot, so perhaps more of these stores will be popping up nationwide? Way, way better than IKEA or other mid-priced furniture stores.
