Home Improvement

We've been busy busy lately with school starting back up and all. Grant is also working and job searching so when he's extra busy I have been working on my domestic skills, (yes family, even my cooking skills!) We have also been working on decorating our apartment which looked like this when we moved in...The day we got our key and started moving stuff in

Our empty little kitchen
The front door and wall
The other wall of the living room

Since then we've been working on home improvements. Garage sale-ing, spray paint, masking tape, and lots of 3M sticky things on the walls led to our little apartment looking a bit more like a home:

Our TV-less TV stand
Our masking tape tree decor-- We also fixed up that lamp that used to be gold and kinda nasty. Note, the pictures are still the ones that come with the frames... Also, that mirror on the right is one we bought at a yard sale for $3 and spray painted black!
We set up "track lighting" with sticky lights and pointed them towards our trendy wall.

Our kitchen-- still little, but not empty!
This is another lamp we painted. It looks really cool we just have to find the right shade for it.

We're really excited about our new little home and how it's coming together! Luckily we're finally getting some of our own income with Grant's Ebusiness job and High School Musical so hopefully a TV and a little table will be our next new additions!

We're still here!!

Although our blog does not show it, we, the Tanners are still alive and kickin it! We actually have quite a few exciting things to blog about! However with recent computer issues... (unfortunately self-inflicted) and our busy transition back to school and work we just haven't gotten around to it yet. But in case you've missed our faces, here's a little somethin somethin :)

Apparently the entertainment bug has caught on because...

Grant decided to jump on the bandwagon... Here's American Fever-- 10 million albums sold and tours in China, Japan and Lithuania!! Wahoo! Go Grantie!!

Okay... we'll come up with real news next time....
