Our new home...

Haven't had a chance to post since last weekend, but here is an update. My mom and dad came to Springfield to come see our new condo before we signed our contract and help us make some design decisions. Since we caught our condo in the early stages, we had the opportunity to give it our own personal touch. It's great...but very stressful! So many decisions and so many makes it hard! They got in Saturday morning and after shopping and picking out countertops...Lolo and I decided we needed a nap :)

We went to dinner with Leanne, Brett's mom, downtown at Saputo's. If you're ever in Springfield..and you like Italian food...go to Saputo's. You definitely won't regret it! My parents left on Sunday afternoon, after we drove all around Springfield to find a flooring company that stocks absolute black granite tile. We decided to use it around our fireplace and hearth. We drove to Bloomington, about an hour drive each way, when Brett got home on Monday to get 20 pieces of black granite...we were desperate! They were going to lay the tile last week so we had to step on it if we wanted to make it happen. Here is a picture of our BEFORE fireplace...

Here is a picture of our eat-in-kitchen. They still have to finish laying the tile next week...

And here is a pic of our master bedroom. They are storing most of their tools in that room so it doesn't really give it the full effect :)

I promise to post some new pictures once everything is finished in mid April. We have almost finalized all of our rooms...just a few minor decisions such as faucets. Can't wait till it finally gets done and we can move to a new, nicer neighborhood!


  1. Congrats on the new home! Everything will come always does.

  2. Congrats, Courtney! That's so exciting! Can't wait to see you on Friday! :)
