Our Very First Home(!)

Here it is, Brents and my first home! (Well it will officially be ours on May 14 when we get the keys, only 84 more days!) Isn't she a beaut? Ok I know what you're thinking: Satellite dish = eww. We couldn't agree more. We have already decided that it is the first thing to go, and with a new paint job on the garage and front door it will be oh-so-pretty.

Ahhh home owner bliss. No more rent. No more filling out request forms to change paint colours - we can paint it flourescent green if we want to (of course we won't because Brent married me, and I love my colour wheel).

We are beyond excited about our new (first) house. We're so excited to make it ours, inside and out and share our DIY's, upgrades and renos with you all.

Welcome to my blog!

This is my first official post on my first official blog. A blog that I can guarantee to be one thing: all about me.

I don't really have a theme, unless you count my culinary-DIY-home-improvement-travel endeavours and adventures a theme. My husband, Brent and I just bought our first home last week(!) and I wanted a place to share my DIYs, ideas and random thoughts with family and friends.

Thus, the birth of my blog. Who am I? Keep checking this blog and you'll find out a lot more about me, but for starters, my name is Renee Carpenter. Last August I married the love of my life, Brent, and we now live in Waterloo, Ontario (just outside of Toronto for all of you South of the border readers). As previously mentioned, we will be moving into our first home in a matter of months, and I thought it would be a fun way to document our home improvements (and other exciting finds and experiences along the way).
