More House Pictures

My sister-in-law came up to see my house this week and brought a good camera. Here are a few of the pictures she took. Hopefully all of the painting and most of the decorating will get done this weekend. Internet and cable get installed on Tuesday!

Moving and Painting

I know its been awhile since I last posted, but I wanted to give an update of the last two weeks. I closed escrow and the house became mine on Friday, May 15th and we began moving furniture that weekend and began to get everything taped and ready for painting. Over the weekend, my parents and lots of friends - Sara, Jen, Tim, James, Liv, Roo, Price and Cortney came over and helped paint almost the entire house, build some of the furniture and place even more of it in it's final resting place. If all goes as planned, I should have cable and internet installed in the house within a week and be able to live there full time. Below are lots of pictures that I have taken over the last two weeks.

Thanks again to everyone that helped make my house a home!

New Stairs

After cleaning the stairs at the Bradley Lodge with a variety of cleaning products over the last year and a half, we finally decided to rip out the carpet, take out the old wood treads and install brand new hard wood stairs. They look amazing (and you're going to have to trust me, because there is not a picture of them currently, we will have to go back to take that one). In addition to finishing the stairs, my mom and one of her friends, Gail, raked some more pine needles, I did a little bit of painting (practicing for my house in a few weeks), we put in a new queen size bed (so that I could have my full mattress back), we ate some amazing food and even found some time to visit Chapel of the Pines for a Sunday morning service.

WEST ROSEVILLE HOUSE UPDATE: I will be doing my final walk through on Tuesday and signing the final papers sometime late next week before I close on Election Day, May 19th. All of that means, I will be having a "Painting Party" over Memorial Day We…

Thrive 2009

It was an amazing few days working at Thrive, seeing friends and those who I haven't seen in awhile, and of course hearing amazing speakers and bands. Ray Johnston, Sherwood Carthen, Francis Chan, Franklin Graham, Nick Vujicic, Lincoln Brewster, The Katinas and the SHORE Worship team.

Thrive 2010 is filling up fast and will once again include spectacular speakers like Miles McPherson, John Ortberg, John Maxwell, Francis Chan, Lincoln Brewster and the Parachute Band.
