Did you know that's your name? You were named for the street you are on. It's a pretty cool name I guess. I didn't name you, but hope you like it. :)
Tomorrow begins the third consecutive weekend I have spent painting your walls. Confession: I'm a tad bit OVER it. I mean, can you blame me? I still can't get some of last weekend's paint off my left leg (despite my scrubbing efforts in the shower) and painting a house alone can become extremely monotonous and boring. But this weekend is hopefully our final weekend of painting. Soon, your walls will have fresh coats of paint and you will be cleaner than you've been in months. Have you been lonely without anyone living in you? Do you miss the sound of little feet running around? Well no worries, in about 2-3 weeks you'll gain a new family and a sweet little puppy that loves the sound of her own paws running around on your floors!
After you are all cleaned up and painted, Luke and I are going to Ikea. We're going to buy you a brand new kitchen table and chairs, a bed frame for the master bedroom, and some fun organizational items. Luke has never been to an Ikea before (yes, I am embarrassed for him too) and once I take him there, I just know he will be thrilled out of his mind to buy you some fun prizes!
Vista, I don't care that your floor creaks. It's part of your personality. And the built in shelving in the corner of the "master bathroom" (quotations because let's be honest, it's not very master) is too cute for words. I'm absolutely in LOVE with the color we have chosen for your kitchen walls and you better believe I already have a plan as to where I am hanging our wedding pictures, mirrors, and other wall decor. You're going to be pretty cute once I'm finished with you! :)
But until then, I'll just continue to daydream about what cooking my first dinner on your stove will be like. Or envision Luke walking through your backdoor after a long day at work and kissing the cook. Because no matter your imperfections, you're our first big adventure as husband and wife, and I know we'll forever look back on these days with fond memories. You're a cozy little house in the country and I cannot wait to make you our first home.
I've got to go to bed now so that I can be rested and ready to paint in the morning! I'm looking forward to our next two days together. And don't worry, I won't forget my iPhone. I mean, what would we do without Pandora while painting?
