Two weeks ago, Jeff, Marbles, Ruby, and myself all packed into our car and drove up to San Francisco (its about 5.5 hours each way). 
We got to visit our cousin's new condo, eat yummy food, and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge.
My piggies are such great travelers:  they were so well behaved during the car ride up and down the state!

Now onto my touristy photos!

Happy 2nd year House Anniversary

Today is the 2nd year anniversary of the day we got the keys to our house!
It felt like the day-before-yesterday when that happened. 
And it felt like yesterday when I blogged about our 1st year house anniversary!

What kind of stuff have we done to the house within the last year?
  1. We remodeled the entire kitchen.
  2. We refurnished the living area.
  3. We replaced all old windows (see photo above).
  4. Got a ping pong table
  5. I am currently in the process of giving the interior a fresh coat of paint.  (pictures to come, when its complete).
What changes do I foresee for this upcoming year?
  1. Put up dry wall in the garage
  2. Level out the flooring in the backyard.  It's an accident waiting to happen.
  3. Outdoor furniture?!? (completing  item #2 is a prerequisite)
  4. Repaint the black iron fence on the front of the house. 
Looks like mainly outdoor tasks.
